Product Description

IC693APU301 is a Single Axis Positioning Module (APM) for the GE Series 90-30. The Motion Mate APM is a simple to use, fully programmable, intelligent motion control module. Created specifically for the Series 90-30 PLC, this axis positioning module lets the PLC user mix high performance control with PLC logic solving functions in a single combined system. IC693APU301 is configurable to either a standard or follower mode depending on the needs of the user. Standard mode permits the user to mix high performance motion control with PLC logic solving functions. Additionally, in follower mode, high performance electronic gearing is available for continual master/slave applications. Whichever option the user chooses can be easily selected through set-up configuration with the appropriate software.

The Series 90-30 and IC693APU301 operate together as an integrated control package with the APM handling all direct communications to both the drive and machine. The PLC automatically transfers data between the tables and the APM. Additionally, the PLC offers a way to connect O/I which can control and monitor operations within the system.  This APM can be installed in any of the Series 90-30 CPU, remote baseplate, or expansion for use. For the embedded CPU, it is possible to add up to three APM modules and for the modular CPU, up to eight can be added. Additionally, multiple motion programs can be created and stored in the APM with the correct software package. Use of the VersaPro software is recommended.  The APM faceplate has two 24 pin connectors of high density for servo connections. To make wiring easier, each connection is made through a short cable terminal block with the cables consisting of a 24 pin I/O connector, a cable, and a 25 pin terminal block of D-type. Various connector kits are available for order.

The IC693APU301 module is an axis-positioning module that can be used to position 1 axis from GE Fanuc. It has been designed and manufactured in the Series 90-30 line of GE modules. The IC693APU301 axis-positioning module is completely programmable and it is designed to be easy to use. The servo loops in this module only take 1 millisecond to update. The software that the IC693APU301 axis-positioning module uses is the VersaPro software in version 1.1 or later. This module is made to be employed as part of a GE Series 90-30 PLC system. The operating modes that the IC693APU301 axis-positioning module can support are the standard operating mode and the follower operating mode. The follower operating mode can support continuous applications with its electronic gearing.


The GE Fanuc Series 90-30 IC693APU301 axis-positioning module can automatically transfer data to and from the Series 90-30 PLC that it is installed in during operation. This module should be installed in either the CPU baseplate or an expansion baseplate in the PLC. The 331 series GE CPUs can support up to 8 axis-positioning modules like the IC693APU301 module in 1 PLC system, and up to 3 axis-positioning modules can be installed in 1 baseplate in the system. The IC693APU301 axis-positioning module uses logic to detect the precise position of the PLC’s axis and to compare its position to the position that is required by the commands or programming of an application. This module acts as the interface between the axis that it controls and the PLC system.
