The IC660BBS101 is an isolated Genius I/O block by GE Fanuc with a power rating of 115 VAC or 125 VDC and an output current of 2 Amps with a frequency of between 47-63 Hz. The block weighs 4 lbs. with a block to block isolation of 1500 Volts. The block is fully compatible with handheld monitor IC660HHM501 and any GE Fanuc bus controller (PCIM or QBIM). Blocks numbered IC660CBS100, 1C660BBS100, and IC660BS101 are backward compatible with previous versions of this Genius I/O block.

The IC660BBS101 block comes with an array of LEDs, each circuit having its own LED. Should the circuit be configured as an input, the corresponding LED will indicate threshold voltage. However, if the circuit is configured to act as an output, the LED will indicate that the circuit is in a state commanded by the CPU. I/O block modules can be configured or set to act as input only, output only, or a combination of the two. The default setting is input only. If configured or set as input only, then all circuits should be set to either regular or tristate inputs. If configured or set as output only, all block circuits should be output only.

The isolated I/O blocks have the capacity to perform diagnostic checks such as over-temperature, absence of a load, sudden shutdown of the I/O block, failed switch, and power overload.  During field wiring, each terminal block can accommodate one AWG #12 or two AWG #14 wires. The minimum recommended wire size AWG #22. Spade or ring terminals of up to 0.27 inches in width can be accommodated by the terminal block. The user can connect a maximum of five power sources to the terminal assembly.
