Product Description

The IC695PNS001 is a PACSystems PROFINET Scanner module from the GE Fanuc RX3i Series. This module connects a remote universal RX3i I/O rack of Series 90-30 or RX3i modules to a PROFINET I/O Controller.  See specifications for this unit on IC695PNS001's website page.

Technical Specifications

Module Type:  PROFINET Scanner
Number of Slots:  1 (single slot)
Backplane Support:  Universal
Protocol Support: PROFINET Media Redundancy
USB Ports:   1 Micro USB for firmware upgrades
Internal Power: 1.2 A @ 3.3VDC, 1.1 A max @ 5 VDC


The IC695PNS001 Scanner Module is a PROFINET scanner module designed by GE Fanuc. It is used to connect the PROFINET I/O controller to remote universal I/O racks or RX3i modules. The power requirement of the module is 3.3 Volts DC at 1.2 Amps or 5 Volts DC at 1.1 Amps. It features 4 switched Ethernet ports, 2 RJ-45 connectors, 2 SFP cages, 1 Micro-B USB 2.0 connector, and SD and SDHC cards. The IC695PNS001 Scanner Module also provides 32 input status bits and 32 output control bits as PNS status and control bits. This module comes with 8 indicator LEDs that glow in 22 patterns to provide the users with operating error messages, updates about the status of the module, and module identification.


The IC695PNS001 PROFINET Scanner Module is designed to be used with RX3i PLC CPU versions such as the CPU315, CPU320, CPE305, and CPE310 CPUs. The modules on the rack are scanned by this scanner in order to retrieve and exchange data within the PROFINET I/O LAN. It supports 1 CIDR IP address and 5 MAC addresses. The Proficy Machine Edition software version which is required for use with this IC695PNS001 module is version 8.50 SIM 2 or later. Since this module is open equipment that has user-accessible live electrical parts, it must be installed inside a suitable enclosure for safety. It must be installed in Slot 1 or Slot 2 of an RX3i universal backplane or Slot 6 of an RX3i 7-slot backplane. This module has independently operating ports that are used to attach different types of modules. It can be used to manage module configuration and PROFINET communication among the modules and I/O controllers within a remote rack.

Customer Questions and Answers

  • Question:  What is an IC695PNS001?  Answer:  The IC695PNS001 is a PACSystems PROFINET Scanner module from the GE Fanuc RX3i Series.
  • Question: What does IC695PNS001 do?  Answer:  This module connects a remote universal RX3i I/O rack of Series 90-30 or RX3i modules to a PROFINET I/O Controller. 
  • Question:  What does this scanner do after connecting the modules to a controller?  Answer:  IC695PNS001 scans the modules in its rack, retrieving data and providing output data. It then exchanges that data on the PROFINET I/O LAN at the configured production rate.
  • Question:  What does IC695PNS001 manage?  Answer:  This module manages PROFINET communication and module configuration between an I/O Controller and module in the remote rack. If network communications are lost, the PNS manages I/O states according to the individual module configurations.
  • Question:  What are some features of IC695PNS001?  Answer: 
    • Programming and configuration services for all supported Series 90-30 and RX3i I/O modules using Proficy Machine Edition. 
    • Support for daisy-chain/line, star, or ring (PROFINET Media Redundancy Protocol (MRP)) topologies.
    • 4 switched Ethernet ports- two 8-conductor RJ-45 shielded twisted pair 10/100/1000 Mbps copper interfaces and 2 Small Form-factor Pluggable (SFP) cages for user-supplied SFP devices.
    • The network can include media interfaces of more than one type.
    • Support for transfer of I/O Device Name to another PNS module using an SD card. This eliminates the need to connect a configuration tool, such as Proficy Machine Edition when replacing a module. 
    • A USB port for field updates of firmware using WinLoader. 
      • *Note: The USB port is for firmware upgrades only. It is not intended for permanent connection. 
  • Question:  What does IC695PNS001 support?  Answer:  10/100/1000 Mbps Copper, 100/1000 Mbps multi-mode Fiber, and 100/1000 Mbps single-mode Fiber
