Product Description

IC693CPU340 is a one slot CPU 340 Module with 32 Kbytes User Memory and 10K Registers. It has one CPU baseplate and four expansion baseplates for each system.The IC693CPU340 has a power supply that needs a load of 350 milliamps from +5 VDC supply. It uses processor 80188 that has a processing speed of 10 MegahertzOperating Temperature of IC693CPU340 is 0 to 60 degrees C (32 to 140 degrees F) ambient. Usually, the Scanning Rate of IC693CPU340 is 0.3 milliseconds per 1K of logic (Boolean contacts).  Firmware as the highest User Program Memory gives out 9.0, 240K Bytes. The exact size of the present user program memory relies on the number designed for the %R, %AI, and %AQ composed word memory types. It also has discrete input and discrete output points of 512.The CPU 340 has a Discrete Global Memory -%G of 1280 bits

The IC693CPU340 Analog Inputs-%A1 and Analog output-%AQ consist of 128 words and 64 words respectively. Further, it comprises of a system register with 16 words that can only be used to reference table viewing and does not allow referencing in the user logic program.  The time count for the module is normally 680 with the existence of a shift register. The module has Built-in Ports 1 (uses the connector on PLC power supply).This port holds up the SNP/SNP-X slave protocols which need CMM module for SNP/SNP-X master. In terms of Communication, it has a LAN – guide multidrop. It also offers assistance to Ethernet, FIP, Profibus, GBC, GCM and GCM+ option modules. IC693CPU340 uses RAM and optional Flash as memory storage in order to store the necessary data.

Customer Questions and Answers

  • Question: What is an IC693CPU340?  Answer:  The IC693CPU340 is a single-slot Central Processing Unit from the GE Fanuc Series 90-30. This unit is the "brains" of the PLC and is where most of the calculations take place.
  • Question:  What's the first thing you should do when testing your IC693CPU340?  Answer:  When you attach the IC693CPU340 to a 5 or 10 slot rack and power it up, you should be checking for an OK light.
  • Question:  What if I do not have an OK light after I have powered it up?  Answer:  If you don't have an OK light, then you won't be able to follow through with the test. The lack of an OK light indicates, right from the start, there is something wrong with your IC693CPU340.
  • Question:  What is this initial test showing?  Answer:  You're basically turning on the configuration and logic in this processor in order to set it to run mode. You want to see that this is a good working processor.
  • Question:  With what software should I test my IC693CPU340?  Answer:  You can test your IC693CPU340 with Proficy Machine Edition. 
  • Question:  What will I need to test my IC693CPU340?  Answer:  All you will need is your IC693CPU340, a 5 or 10 slot rack, and a power supply.
  • Question:  If I think there is a problem with my processor, what should I do?  Answer:  You should, first, make sure the RUN light comes on and then let the processor run overnight (or even 2-3 days). This is to check that it's able to sustain itself in run mode. (You want to make sure it doesn't fail or fall out of run mode for any reason.) If it does fail or fall out of run mode, then you can try reading the faults or errors through the Proficy Machine Edition software. It may give you enough information to help you fix the problem. 
  • Question:  If I can't figure out how to fix my IC693CPU340, what is my next step?  Answer:  PDF Supply can repair your IC693CPU340 for you.
