Product Description

The IC693BEM340 is a standard, rack-mounted 90-30 Series Factory Instrumentation Protocol (FIP) Bus Controller Module manufactured by GE Fanuc. This smart module provides an interface between the Series 90-30 I/O network and a Series 90-30 PLC. It can be easily plugged into the PLC’s backplane.

The IC693BEM340 Factory Instrumentation Protocol is mainly used for controlling I/O, but it can also be used for storing remote devices’ configuration data, as well as for the reporting of faults. Some devices compatible with a FIP bus in a Series 90-30 PLC system include: Series 90-70 PLC, interfaced to a FIP bus by a FIP Bus Controller. Field Control Stations: Field Control I/O modules interfaced to a bus using a FIP Bus Interface Unit (BIU). Remote Drops: Series 90-30 I/O racks interfaced to a bus using a FIP Remote I/O Scanner Modules. Generic Devices: general-use computers with a FIP Interface Module connected to the module.

The IC693BEM340 has no DIP jumpers or switches to be set. It has six status LEDs, two interchangeable FIP bus connectors, and an RS-485 serial port with a latch to secure it in position. The six LEDs, located on the front of the IC693BEM340, conveniently provide status information on communications activity and module status. The 15-pin serial port serves as the link to connect the module to a computer for two purposes: for upgrading the Bus Controller’s operating firmware and for setting up configuration with an external configuration tool. The two 9-pin connectors on the IC693BEM340 function as attachment for one or two FIP busses, which provides a redundant bus capability.
