The General Electric Direct Current Power Connect Board DS200PCCAG6ACB serves as an interface between the drive and the silicon-controlled rectifier (SCR) power bridge. The DS200PCCAG6ACB board uses group numbers depending on the voltage, frame size, and the type of power conversion (regenerative or non-regenerative). Groups 1, 7, and 9 use regenerative, 240 through 630 volts. Groups 2, 8, and 10 use non-regenerative 240 through 700 volts. The board groups include AC volts, fuses, reactors, and bus transformers. Groups 1 and 2, groups 3 and 4, groups 5 and 6, groups 7 and 8, and groups 9 and 10 each use the same application specifications.
There are a dozen plug connectors that provide signals to the SCR bridge. The signals are used to select the dc armature voltage range. The signals are used by the power supply board and are part of the configuration of the drive.
Another source of configuration is the parameters defined in the configuration file. The operator can set the parameters either through the control panel or using a laptop. The display on the control panel enables the operator to view the parameters and the keys on the keypad enable the operator to edit the parameters and move up and down through the parameters and find applicable location in the file.
To use a laptop, the operator can download the file and use editing software to modify the file. The operator can download the same file to multiple drives, or edit a unique configuration for each drive.
