Product Description


General: The IC693CPU341 module, a member of the GE Fanuc 90-30 Series, is a single slot CPU module which is equipped with 5 baseplates. It contains 4 remote and/or expansion baseplates in addition to the 1 CPU baseplate. It is equipped with an 80C188XL processor.

Power: It runs at 20 MHz and requires a load of 490 milliamps from the +5 VDC rated power supply.  The module operates at an ambient temperature range of 0 to 60 degrees Celsius (or 32 to 140 degrees Fahrenheit).

Memory: This CPU’s typical can rate is 0.3 milliseconds per 1K of logic (also known as Boolean contacts).  With a maximum user program memory of 80K bytes, the IC693CPU341 has a register memory (%R) of 9999 words; discrete global memory (%G) of 1280 bits, internal coils (%M) of 1024 bits, output (temporary) coils (%T) of 256 bits, and system status references (%S) of 128 bits (with %S, %SA, %SB, %SC having 32 bits each).  

I/O: Analog inputs (%AI) and outputs (%AQ) is 1024 and 256 words respectively.  The discrete input (%I) and output (%Q) are 512 each. It has 16 words (%SR) system registers which are used for reference table viewing only and cannot be referenced in user logic program.

Specific: This CPU has a singular built-in serial port, which requires a connector to the PLC power supply used in the system. The port supports SNP/SNP-X slave protocols.  The IC693CPU341 has PCM/CCM compatibility, although, it does require a CMM module in order to support SNP/SNP-x master, CCM, or RTU slave support. It also requires a PCM module to support RTU master.

LAN: IC693CPU341 has a Local Area Network (LAN) installed. This feature allows the CUP to support a variety of option modules, such as FIP, Profibut, multidrop, Ethernet, GBC, GMC and GCM+ option modules.  Its early versions have RAM and optional EPROM or EEPROM for memory storage. New versions, starting with hardware version IC693CPU341-J and firmware Release 4.61, only supports RAM and optional Flash for additional memory needs.

Jumper Setting for Writing to EEPROM with Early CPU Models of the 90-30.


The Model 311, 313, 323, 331, and an earlier version of the Model 341 CPUs have a User PROM option for storing user application programs, register data, and configuration data in non-volatile memory. Application programs are usually developed in a CPU's battery-backed RAM memory and executed from this RAM memory. But, if additional program integrity, or operation of the PLC without a battery is desired, an optional EEPROM or EPROM can be installed in a spare socket (labeled PROGRAM PROM) on the embedded CPU baseplates or in a socket inside the Model 331 CPU module (and inside the early versions of Model 341 CPU prior to hardware version IC693CPU341-J and firmware release 4.61). The Model 331 CPU module (and the early versions of Model 341) has a jumper labeled JP1 located next to the EEPROM/EPROM socket to allow you to select either EEPROM or EPROM. These jumper positions are shown below.


Jumper Selects

3 - 2 EEPROM

2 - 1 EPROM


Customer Questions and Answers

  • Question:  What is an IC693CPU341?  Answer:  The IC693CPU341 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 IC693CPU341?  Answer:  When you attach the IC693CPU341 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 IC693CPU341.
  • 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 IC693CPU341?  Answer:  You can test your IC693CPU341 with Proficy Machine Edition. 
  • Question:  What will I need to test my IC693CPU341?  Answer:  All you will need is your IC693CPU341, 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 IC693CPU341, what is my next step?  Answer:  PDF Supply can repair your IC693CPU341 for you.
