Product Description

The IC698CRE030 is a PACSystems RX7i Central Processing Unit. The RX7i CPU is programmed and configured by programming software to perform control of machines, processes, and systems in real time. It is able to communicate with I/O and smart option modules over a rack-mounted backplane using the VME64 Standard format. An embedded Ethernet port or serial port enables the CPU to communicate with the programmer and HMI devices. This particular model utilizes a 600MHz Pentium-M microprocessor (64 MB both user memory and flash).

Highlights of this unit include HSB or hot standby redundancy, battery-backed user memory and non-volatile flash memory allowing for program, configuration, register data, and symbolic variable storage. It is bulk memory accessible via reference table %W. It features programming in Ladder Diagram, C, Structured Text, and Function Block Diagram. Auto-located Symbolic Variables conveniently use unlimited memory. A number of modules are supported, including 90-70 Series discrete and analog I/O as well as VME modules. Please see the installation module for a list of other supported modules.

The IC698CRE030 CPU allows both data monitoring across the web and a maximum of 16 web server/FTP connections. Block size may not exceed 128KB, but 512 program blocks are supported. Furthermore, the unit is equipped with word referencing, a battery-backed calendar clock, serial port enabled firmware upgrades, and three isolated serial ports.

EGD data exchange, TCP/IP communication services, station management, diagnostic tools, and time synchronization to the timeserver are all made possible by an embedded Ethernet interface. Additionally, a redundant IP (configurable by the user) facilitates EGD exchange production.


Power requirements for the IC698CRE030 are as follows: +5 VDC: 3.2 Amps nominal, +12 VDC: 0.003 Amps nominal, and -12 VDC: 0.003 Amps nominal.

Customer Questions and Answers

  • Question:  What is an IC698CRE030?  Answer:  The IC698CRE030 is a 600 MHz Central Processing Unit with Hot Stand-by Redundancy from the GE Fanuc RX7i Series with an Intel Pentium-M microprocessor. 
  • Question:  What does Hot Standby CPU Redundancy in an IC698CRE030 do?  Answer:   Hot Standy CPU Redundancy allows a critical application or process to continue operating if a failure occurs in any single component. 
  • Question:  How many CPUs are required?  Answer:  A Hot Standy system uses two CPUs; and active unit that actively controls the process, and a backuo unit that is synchronized with the active unit and can take over the process if it becomes necessary.
  • Question:  How does IC698CRE030 communicate with I/O and Intelligent Option modules?  Answer:  The CPU communicates over a rack-mounted backplane using the VME64 Standard format.
  • Question:  What else is required wtih the IC698CRE030 to accomplish redundancy?  Answer:  A Redundacy Memory Xchange module (IC698RMX016) configured as a redundancy link in each unit. 
  • Question: How can I avoid RAM memory loss?  Answer:  Routine maintenance procedures should include scheduled replacement of the CPU's IC698ACC701 lithium battery pack.  The battery maintains program and data memory and operates the calendar clock when the power is removed.
  • Question:  If I don't have any light on or the CPU is not functioning correctly - What does that mean?  Answer:  It means there is something wrong with your processor and it will need repair or maybe even replacement.
