Product Description

GE Fanuc’s IC660HHM501 Hand-held Monitor (HHM) is an interface operating device used to set up, monitor, and configure a Genius I/O and communication system. The HHM can be used as a portable monitoring device if desired by the user. Included in the IC660HHM501's features is a four-lined LCD display with 16 characters each, language selection display (English, Spanish, French, and Italian), a 20-key sealed membrane keypad, and a keyswitch limits access to operations of certain functions of the device. The ability to communicate with the I/O blocks and force discrete and analog I/O is the primary feature of the HHM, even in the absence of a PLC or computer connected to the bus.  

Data for the Genius bus and all its devices are displayed on the screen of the IC660HHM501 to help the user receive and review I/O data for any device on the bus, memory data from CPUs, global data addresses, bus scan time, diagnostics, and descriptions of all devices on the bus.  Operating from its battery pack or AC power, the IC660HHM501 handheld monitor has a required 115/230 VAC at 15% or 47-63 Hz of AC power for the battery charger. Even if using AC power, a battery pack must be installed. Full charge takes approximately six hours. For power conservation, the HHM has an automatic shutoff time of 10 minutes. When continuous operation is required, this feature can be disabled. 

The monitor independently weighs 1.6 lbs. and its size is 8.00” x 3.75” x 1.25”. If stored in its protective case, the IC660HHM501 weighs 1.8 lbs. and measures 10.85” x 4.30” x 2.25”. The HHM can be permanently installed using a panel mounting kit and should be installed with access to 115 VAC or 230 VAC power. The acceptable operating temperature range is zero to 60C (32-140F), with a storage temperature range of -40 to +70C (-40 to 158F). Non-condensing humidity should not drop below 5 percent and should not rise above 95 percent.

The IC660HHM501 monitor is a hand-held monitor and a product of GE Fanuc Automation. It belongs to the Genius I/O product family and it is a standalone hand-held module. This hand-held monitor module comes with a removable leather case, a cable that is used to connect the monitor to the I/O block, a rechargeable battery, and a battery charger or adapter which has an 8-foot cord. The GE Fanuc IC660HHM501 hand-held monitor provides an efficient operator interface that enables the operators to monitor and control a Genius I/O PLC system’s operation as well as its communication. It features an LCD control screen with 4 selectable display languages, a battery pack, a 20-key sealed membrane keypad and a keyswitch that is used to access the restricted operator functionalities. This module‘s keypad comprises operation keys, function keys, and decimal keys which are used to provide reliable operation.

The GE Fanuc Genius I/O IC660HHM501 hand-held monitor features a battery pack which is used to provide a maximum of 6 hours of operation without any other power during a power failure. This unit has passed the industrial drop test, where it is dropped from 4 feet onto a concrete floor.
