GE / IP FANUC Series 90/30 In Stock
IC660ELB922 is an ISA Interface Card manufactured for the Genius LAN interface by GE Fanuc. IC660ELB922 supports two independent LANS up to 7500 feet each. IC660ELB922 is compatible with a handheld monitor (HHM). Any GE Fanuc Genius bus controller may be coupled with an IC660ELB922 card. IC660ELB922 is compatible with all the other Genius protocols at all levels. The IC660ELB922 card uses 8,000 inputs and 8,000 outputs. When the card is configured as input-only, it can only read Genius block information. When configured as output-only, it can only write to Genius block outputs. IC660ELB922 is also an entry point into the Genius I/O System for the IBM PC/AT/XT series. Being an AT type computer, IC660ELB922 is by default designed to be integrated into a user-developed microprocessor.
The IC660ELB922 provides the host computer with a full-function bus controller for Genius I/O networks. IC660ELB922 is available in both PC-104 and VME form factor. IC660ELB922 is a replacement of the IC660ELB906 two-slot card and is available with two daughterboards. The role of each daughterboard is to provide low cost tap on the Genius I/O bus. This setup also allows the host computer to control remote I/O using the wide diagnostics, high dependability, and noise protection of the Genius I/O System. Daughterboards may be configured independently thanks to the configuration software supplied with the IC660ELB922. To connect IC660ELB922 to the Genius bus, board-edge connectors are used. Since IC660ELB922 has two daughterboards, they can be connected to the same bus or to independent buses. IC660ELB922 is available in three product code variations: GEFIC660ELB922, CIMIC660ELB922 and 1C660ELB922.
Troubleshooting information is available on IC660ELB922's website page; it also includes a datasheet user-manual.
Installing Genius PCIM Cards in Computer and using TestGENI Program
Description: The Genius PCIM card provides a computer with a full-function bus controller for Genius I/O networks. The card is available in an is a, VME and PC-104 form factor and a PCI version is underdevelopment for 2002.
The newer IC660ELB921 and IC660ELB922 versions of the PCIM have replaced the IC660ELB906 two-slot PCIM and the new ELB921 is significantly lower priced when compared to the ELB906. New single-slot cards have a single DIP switch to define the I/O control port address for 14 bytes of EEPROM data containing the GENI setup data. EEPROM data defaults to port 3E4, memory D000 and SBA 31 at 153 KB Std for the first channel.
Many software packages were based on the old ELB906 card and they do not describe the EEPROM switch. The PCIM manual, GFK-0081, defines the switches backwards on page 3-2 (Up arrow should be up away from the board). The factory default settings of hex 222 may also conflict with address 220 used by 16-bit sound card support in some motherboards. A control port setting of hex 3E2 (1-8=O O O O O C C C where Closed is Down toward card) is recommended.
Resolution: Software is required to change the EEPROM setup data. The DPCIMCFG program that ships with the PCIM has no diagnostics and may not run on fast computers. The TestGENI program is recommended to setup and test any PCIM card. TestGENI is a 16-bit DOS program that runs under Windows 95 and 98, but it cannot access hardware under Windows NT/2000/XP. You must make a DOS boot diskette using the command FORMAT A:/S/Qin a DOS window under Windows 95 or 98 or DOS. Copy the TestGENI.exe and TestGENI.hlp files to the boot diskette and use it to reboot the NT/2000/XP computer.
TestGENI operates like a BIOS setup program using Up/Down arrows to select lines and Left/Right arrows to change values. You can press the F1 help key to display help text on any line. The four TestGENI screens are:
Press the [ESC] key to exit each screen. Once you have turned on all PCIM cards and accessed PLC and I/O data, setup is complete. If you used a diskette, remove it and reboot your computer. Start your application software and enter the I/O port and memory address you defined on the second screen in TestGENI. Note: CIMPLICITY HMI and PC Control Genius drivers can setup the EEPROM data directly, but you can still use TestGENI for checkout.

The final letter in the part number (ex. IC660ELB922K) indicates the revision. Revision K or later use the newer style electronic housing and therefore needs the newer style plastic door and may indicate some compatibility issues with the terminal strip.
