The GE DC Power Connect Board DS200PCCAG1ADB serves as an interface between the drive and the SCR power bridge. The connector for the DS200PCCAG1ADB is positioned in the rear of the circuit board cabinet on the drive and so the replacement procedure requires the servicer to move aside two other boards to gain access. The drive is designed so that the other boards do not need to be removed and can be easily tilted out of the away.
Once you gain access to the cabinet containing the circuit boards, pull the locking tabs that secure the front board carrier. The board carrier contains the front board and can be tilted to one side without disconnecting cables. The next board carrier contains the middle board and you can tilt it downward to expose the DS200PCCAG1ADB.
All cables must be removed from the board. First, note where all the cables are connected in the board. You can label the cables with the locations or use a diagram of the board to indicate the locations. Another option is to take a photograph of the board before you remove the cables.
Ribbon cables are not engineered for heavy use or rough treatment. Remove the ribbon cables by holding the cable by the connector and pulling out the cable. Some other cables are held in place with tabs. Move the tab from the locking mechanism before you remove the connector. Remove all screws form a connector if they hold a connector in place. Don’t discard the screws or allow them to fall in the drive compartment.
