The DS200SLCCG1A board was developed by General Electric as a local area network (LAN) communication card. The board is housed in the Mark V series of drive and exciter boards. It can be installed in drive and exciter cabinets across the GE brand. Installing the card provides a necessary communication medium needed for drive operation. As a G1 version of the board, this card includes the circuitries needed for both DLAN and ARCNET networks.
Both isolated and nonisolated circuits are provided by the DS200SLCCG1A LAN communication card. Communications functions are filtered through the LAN control processor (LCP) integrated on to the board. Two removable EPROM memory cartridges provide the program storage for the LCP. The board also includes dual ported RAM. This memory space provides the storage for communication between the LCP and an externally wired drive control board. An attachable alphanumeric keypad is also included with the drive. This programmer provides users with access to board diagnostics and other system settings.
AX Control ships all drive boards in a static resistant protective plastic wrapping. Be sure to review all installation parameters before removing the DS200SLCCG1A card from the shipping container. Board installation should only be performed by qualified personnel that are trained to handle these cards. Instructions on wiring and installing this LAN communication board can be found in the series manual as well as the device datasheet. Technical support for all members of the Mark V series was originally provided by General Electric.
