Model IS200CSLAH1APR1 was designed as a printed circuit board to operate as an input-output board. The I/Os on this board allows for it to communicate with other boards in the Mark VI system for which this model was designed. The model was designed to be used with gas and steam turbines. This board has a multitude of components on both ends of the board not just on the front end. If you are holding the board with the faceplate towards you there are ten HFBR-5961xxZ transceivers, these transceivers were made by Avago.
When this model has been mounted into the Mark VI Control System module it will be able to be programmed however the customer chooses. The IS200CSLAH1APR1 board can be used with software frame rates, the typical frame rates are forty, ten, or twenty milliseconds. The frame rates are the elapsed time for which it takes the software to condition and read the inputs, send outputs and execute the chosen application software.
Two different communication types can be used with the IS200CSLAH1APR1 model. One of them is the IONet which is used to communicate between this model and the Control Module. If you would like to make the IONet communication more deterministic asynchronous drives language can be used. The primary function of using the IONet besides communicating with the Control Module is to access diagnostic data between the Backup Protection Module and the Control Module; a tripping function can also be used with the IONet but it is not required.
