The GE Signal Conditioner Board DS200PTCTG1BAA features 1 terminal block with terminals for 72 signal wires. It also contains 1 50-pin connector. The IDs for the terminals on the terminal block include OUT2, OUT1, COM1, COM2, P15, SO21, and L23. It also contains terminal posts for 6 signal wires.
Due to the numerous signal cables that attach to the board, there is a risk of interference in the signals carried to and from the board. To reduce the risk, proper planning is important when you first install the drive. There are several considerations to keep in mind. The interference in signals wires comes from power cables that supply power to the drive and other equipment in the surrounding area. The high-voltage power cables must be routed away from the signal cables if possible. To plan for this, bundle the power cables together and at the same time, attempt to bundle the signal cables together. If that is not possible try to limit the length at which the cables run in parallel. If the cables run in parallel for a greater length, keep the signal and power cable further apart. If the cable run in parallel for a lesser length, the cables can run closer together.
One method to reduce interference is to run the signal and power cables at right angles to each other. This reduces the exposure of the signal cables to the interference. Under some conditions, shielded cables can be used to protect the signal wires from interference.
