The IS200BPIIH1A is a Bridge Power Interface Board that is used within the GE Speedtronic Mark VI Series.
The IS200BPIIH1A is used within Innovation Series Drives. It interfaces with IGCT switching devices and provides a number of feedback signals, control signals, and accessibility points for other boards like the Expander Load Source Board (IS200GGXIG) in conjunction with the BICI board. The BPII board uses RS-422 connectors to communicate gate commands and status signals. It also relays up to 24 gate status feedback signals and gate firing commands between GGXI boards.
The IS200BPIIH1A is designed with two 128-pin backplane connectors that are labeled P1 and P2. The board also has two 68-pin connectors mounted into its front faceplate. These are labeled JGATE1 and JGATE2, and are typically used to interface with GGXI boards. The front faceplate also has two clips to hold the board in place after it is inserted into a rack system and is marked with the GE logo, the board’s identification number, and a warning to “install in slot 6 only.” Boards that are installed improperly may be damaged or may damage the system.
The IS200BPIIH1A also has four TP test pods located on its surface. These are located in two parallel lines. These test pods are used during board development and are not used once the board has been installed.
