Can I exchange Cell Control Boards (CCBs) on my GH180 cells?

Yes. Spare Cell Control Boards can be ordered from Siemens.

It is very important to fit the correct CCB to a cell. There are several types which look similar, but are intended for use in different cell types or sizes.  There will be differences in component values because of the different types of IGBT and different cell working voltages.

DO NOT mix up CCBs between different models of drive or cell.  They are likely to cause faults, and it is possible you will damage a cell.

Siemens recommends that even when a customer has bought replacement CCBs then they should be fitted by our specialist site engineers.
