The GE LAN Power Supply Circuit Board DS200UPLAG1 contains two 26-pin connectors, a fuse, and one toggle switch. The board also has one reset button and a single 8-pin connector. The 26-pin connectors on this model are used to send and receive control signals to the other boards and components that control the behavior of the drive. Ribbon cables attach to the 26-pin connectors, and you must consider some guidelines to follow when you remove or install a ribbon cable.
Multiple small wires make up the ribbon cable, and each wire carries a signal from the board or to the board that helps control the drive. Always place your thumb and one finger on the connector portion of the cable when you pull the cable out of the connector on the board. If you pull from the ribbon portion of the cable, it puts too much stress on the connector and it could easily cause the wires to be disconnected.
When you connect the ribbon cable to the DS200UPLAG1 model, use your thumb and one finger to hold the connector. Align the connector and use pressure to gently connect the cable to the board. Notice that the pins on the connectors are easily bent and so you should check the alignment of the two connectors to prevent the pins from being bent.
Other connectors also populate the board, and it is best practice to never pull the cables out from the cable portion.
