Product Description

The IC698CHS217 is a rear-mounted, rear I/O access module rack from GE Automation and Controls.
With a total capacity of 17 slots, this rack is capable of accommodating a variety of RX7i CPUs, Series 90-70 modules, and VME devices. Both single and double width devices are supported. Note: Slot zero is reserved for the power supply, and slot one is designated for the CPU. The spacing between each module is 0.8 inches apart (20.3mm). To allow rear access to the I/O pins, an offset bracket is used.


This rack comes with several features such as rear access to backplane modules and support for an optional cooling fan. The IC698CHS217 uses slot sensing for module addressing, so jumpers and DIP switches are not needed. VME64 J2 connectors on the backplane have transfer speeds of 64 bits every cycle. RX7i plug in power supplies are also supported and have the ability to carry higher wattage.


The IC698CHS217 is classified as open equipment; as such, it must be installed in an environment rated IP54 or better. Overall, this rack is 11.15 inches high (283mm), 19 inches wide (483mm), and 8.875 inches deep (225mm). With the rear-mounted cover installed, the height and width remain the same, but the depth changes to 8.97 inches (228mm). M6 machine screws are needed for mounting the IC698CHS217 with rack spacers. If a fan is to be installed, 9 inches (23cm) of additional clearance is needed.


To shield ground RX7i and Series 90-70 modules, ensure all devices are screwed directly to the rack. Some modules also have a grounding clip attached that grounds the device when fully inserted into the rack. To safety ground the modules, connect the studs on the side of the rack to the earth ground using the proper wire.
