Product Description

Manufactured by GE Automation and Controls, the IC698CHS009 is a front or rear mounted rack case with nine module slots.
This rack is capable of housing various RX7i and Series 90-70 modules and CPUs. Each module connector on the rack backplane is spaced 0.8 inches or 20.3 millimeters apart with each slot able to accommodate one single-width module. Double width modules consume two rack backplane slots each. Slot zero on the backplane is reserved for the power supply, and slot one is intended for the programmable logic controller CPU. The remaining backplane slots are available for a variety of single or double width combinations.


The IC698CHS009 comes with the following features and abilities: slot sensing for input/output modules, with no DIP switches or jumpers necessary for module addressing; automatic daisy chaining of interrupt acknowledge and bus grant signals, with no slot jumpers necessary; J2 connectors with speeds up to 64 bits per cycle; RX7i power supply compatibility; and cooling fan compatibility.


RX7i racks are regarded as “open equipment,” so they must be installed in an IP54 safety enclosure. The dimensions for this rack are as follows: The height is 11.15 inches (283 mm). The width is 12.6 inches (320 mm). The depth is 7.25 inches (184 mm). If a cooling fan is to be installed, an additional 9 inches (23 cm) space between racks is necessary.


A cooling fan is necessary if the following modules are installed: IC698CPE020, IC698CRE020, and IC698PSA350. There are three cooling fan assemblies available, each intended for a different power source. The IC697ACC621 fan is intended for 120 VAC, the IC697ACC624 fan is intended for 240 VAC, and the IC697ACC644 fan is intended for 24VDC.


To shield ground RX7i modules and devices, ensure both top and bottom faceplate screws are firmly connected to the encasement. For Series 90-70 modules and devices, a ground clip will make contact with the conductive rail when installed. For safety grounding, connect the studs mounted on the side of the IC698CHS009 to the earth ground with an AWG #12 wire.


To reduce the impact of electrical magnetic interference (EMI), ensure that the power supply is securely mounted, connect the GND terminal on the power supply to the terminal on either side of the rack using an AWG #12 wire with a ring terminal and star washer, and connect the rack GND terminal to the earth ground.
