General Electric developed the DS200LDCCH1A card to operate as a drive control LAN (local area network) communications board. The card was developed for GE’s Mark V series of drive and exciter boards. Drives across the DIRECTO-MATIC 2000 series are equipped to house this board. Functions provided to the host by the board include operator interface, LAN communications, drive and motor processing, and drive resets.
Onboard, the DS200LDCCH1A communications card provides four microprocessors for various interface systems. The card includes a LAN control processor (LCP) and a drive control processor (DCP). Five bus systems can be accepted by the LCP, while the DCP offers control for integrated peripheral I/Os such as timers and decoders. Also included on the board are a motor control processor (MCP) and a co-motor processor (CMP). The MCP provides the control for the motor control circuits as well as I/O communications. When the processing power of the MCP is not great enough to calculate complex math, the CMP will provide the additional processing power required. An alphanumeric keyboard is also attached to the board, providing user access to system settings and diagnostics.
The DS200LDCCH1A board will be shipped in a protective, static reducing plastic covering. Once received, any manufacturer provided installation parameters should be reviewed before beginning card installation. The series manual as well as the device datasheet includes a comprehensive wiring guide for this communications board. Members of the Mark V series were originally provided with technical support by the manufacturer, General Electric.
