The GE DC300 Drive Snubber Board DS200SSBAG1B features one 2-pin connector, 3 capacitors, and four posts for attaching cables. Before you begin the replacement procedure keep in mind the following information. Only a qualified servicer can perform the replacement due to the high-current present in the drive when it is in operation. The servicer should understand the dangers and the guidelines to minimize the safety hazards. Inspect the area around the drive and clear the area of ungrounded electrical cords because they present a shock hazard. Also, clear the floor of any moisture or puddles or water because of the shock hazard. It is a good practice also to clear the area of debris that the servicer might trip over. The most important consideration is that the servicer should never work alone. This is to have someone nearby if an emergency condition exists and the associate can call for help or deliver aid, if possible. Also, the associate can assist with the replacement procedure.
The drive must have all voltage removed from it before the interior components can be touched. To do that, refer with someone that is familiar with the drive and how it was installed at the site. The best practice is to disable the power supplies by removing the fuses from it or in some other way taking it off line. Use a testing device to test for power in the drive. Some components store current even after the power supply is powered down. Wait a few seconds for power to escape the components before you test the drive.
