The General Electric Power Excitation Board DS200RTBAG3AFB is an optional board that is installed in the drive cabinet and it features ten relays that are driven either directly from the plot relays or remotely by the user. The relays are in 115V ac coil voltage. Other GE Power Excitation Boards use 110V dc or 24V dc coil voltages.
One consideration is that when you install the board in the drive you must remove some screws and washers that secure the board in the drive. As you remove the screws and washers to remove the board, do not allow the metal hardware to fall into the drive and get lost. Keep track of all the hardware and store it in a safe until you need it. Loose metal parts might cause a safety hazard or might damage the drive or components due to the moving parts in the drive and the high-voltage current.
The terminal on the board has connectors for up to 52 connectors and each connector is secured with a screw. To remove the wire loosen the screw but do not remove the screw. It is very important to label the wires so you can quickly reconnect them correctly to the new board.
The board also has jumpers you can use to configure the board to work for your application. For example, jumpers enable you to use an external power source or an internal power source for each relay. The external power source is supplied by the terminal board.
