The IS200DAMAG1BBA model is one of six variations of the Gate Driver Amplifier and Interface Board. All of the Gate Driver Amplifiers and Interface Boards are used to interface between power-switching devices (IGBTs) and the main control rack. The identifier used to determine what variation of the DAM_ is, is the drive power rating. The drive power rating of the DAMA model is six-hundred and twenty frames. This board is used to amplify the current to issue the culminating gate drive for on phase leg of the main drive’s power bridge.
There are a set number of boards used per drive when operating the IS200DAMAG1BBA model. There are three boards per drive for the DAMA board, only one board is used per phase leg.
When connecting this board to the emitter, IGBT gate, collector terminals, and the control rack for the Bridge Personality Interface this model will connect directly to all of these.
The main components of the IS200DAMAG1BBA model are the LEDs, there are absolutely no configurable items, fuses, or test points. The four LEDs on this model are labeled DS1 through DS4, with a different name for each. The names are as follows; DS1 is UON, DS4 is LFF, DS2 is LON, and DS3 is UFF.
The LEDs have different descriptions but have similar colors. The DS2 and DS1 LEDs are yellow with the DS3 and DS4 are green. The DS1 and DS3 LEDs are used together as they are used with the upper IGBT drive, DS1 indicates that the drive is on, and DS3 indicates the drive is off. The DS2 and DS4 LEDs are also used together for the lower IGBT drive, the DS4 is used to indicate that the drive is off with the DS2 LED indicating the drive is on.
