Product Description

IC693CMM301 is a Genius Communications Module (GCM) which is an intelligent module for the Series 90-30 PLC which offers worldwide connections on a genius communications bus between series 90-30 PLCs and other GE Fanuc PLCs. With the use of genius bus controllers, Series 90-70, Series Six, and Series Five PLCs can easily communicate. 0-32 devices can be linked on a Genius Bus. The Genius bus links to the terminal board on the front of GCM module. The Genius communication module can be put on a Series 90-30 CPU baseplate, an expansion baseplate, or a remote baseplate. In order to ensure high performance of the IC693CMM301, the module should be set up on the CPU baseplate. The genius communication module can be utilized for many applications which may include; monitoring of data by an industrial computer and group to group communications among devices on the bus.

The IC693CMM301 Genius Communications bus uses a noise immune network so as to offer fast data transmission of real-time control data. Series 90-30 PLCs are able to connect with one another via a one Genius I/O serial bus with the aid of standard twisted pair, shielded cable, daisy-chained between devices, and terminated at both ends. It is important to use the proper cable to ensure good performance of the system. Genius communication modules have LED indicators located at the front. On usual operations, it is switched on to show the operating status of the module. OK indicates the status of the GBC module where the LED switches on when the power checkup is done. COM displays the status of the Genius communications bus. This indicator remains constantly on, indicating the bus is working well. In case of a failed bus, the indicator blinks and eventually goes off showing there are bus errors and no communication from the PLC. Up to eight Enhanced Genius Communications Modules can be used in a Series 90-30 PLC system. The amount of I/O circuits served by a single Genius bus depends on the varied forms of I/O devices being utilized and the amount of memory storage in the CPU.

    Customer Questions and Answers

    • Question:  What is an IC693CMM301?  Answer:  The IC693CMM301 is an intelligent module that provides automatic, "global data" communications between a Series 90-30 PLC and up to 7 other devices on a Genius bus
    • Question:  What rack size can I use for the IC693CMM301?  Answer:  You can use any rack size for this product.
    • Question:  How is global data transmitted and how much can it exchange?  Answer:  The IC693CMM301 transmits its data automatically and repeatedly, allowing the formation of a shared database. A Genius Communications Module can exchange up to a total of 256 bits (32 bytes) of Global Data. 
    • Question:  Where does the IC693CMM301 plug into on a PLC?  Answer:  IC693CMM301 plugs easily into the PLC's back plate. The latch on the bottom of the module secures it in position. 
    • Question:  What does the LED OK light indicate?  Answer:  The OK light indicates that the module has passed its power up test and is operating.
    • Question:  What does the LED COM light indicate?  Answer:  The COM light indicates that the Series 90-30 PLC has initialized the module, and that the module is receiving communications from the bus. 
    • Question:  Why is my COM light blinking?  Answer:  After a successful start up, the COM light should remain ON unless an excessive number of communications errors occur. Ten errors in ten seconds caused by either noise on the bus, improper wiring, baud rate conflict, or Device Number conflict can cause the COM light to blink.
    • Question:  If IC693CMM301's COM light won't stay ON, what is my next step?  Answer:  If the COM light won't stay ON, your device may need repair. Please visit our repair page.
