Product Description

The GE Fanuc IC693DSM302 is a Motion Mate DSM302. Also known as a motion controller, this two-axis module is a high-performance unit designed to work in tandem with the Series 90-30 PLC. It is geared to deal with complex logic solving and communication functions within the system.  The DSM302 is able to control digital servos and, since firmware version 1.40, servos with an analog command input. An example of such is the GE Fanuc SL Series Servos. On-board is a Digital Signal Processor, which provides vector control of any GE Fanuc AC servos. This machine also enhances tracking accuracy through its Velocity Feed Forward function and Position Error Integrator.

The IC693DSM302 motion controller has an impressive block processing time of under 5 milliseconds. It can automatically transfer data between PLC tables and DSM302 without any user programming and allows for easy I/O connection through factory cables and terminal blocks. Furthermore, the IC693DSM302 has a serial port to allow the user to connect programming devices. This serial port provides another function – enabling the user to perform”soft“upgrades to the firmware. This is stored in the Flash memory.

      Using QuickPanel or PC Control with The IC694APU300/301/302,IC693DSM302 & IC693ALG442 Modules


      The QuickPanel Control and PC Control products support connection to 90-30 I/O using specialized hardware and the 90/30 control I/O driver.

      The driver implements access to certain 90/30 modules, including the IC694APU300/301/302, IC693DSM302 & IC693ALG442, using a data transfer mechanism called communication requests or COMMREQs. COMMREQs comprise a block of information, command & control data etc. that is passed to the module.

      The implementation of COMMREQs in QuickPanel or PC Control mirrors COMMREQs used in GE IP PLCs. See GFK-0467 (90-30) or GFK-2222 (PACs) for more information on COMMREQs used in the PLCs.


      From the Proficy Machine Edition 90/30 I/O driver Help on COMMREQs:


      Data Description

      Data Values

      Data Type



      16#E201(APU300 and ALG442)
      16#E501(APU301, APU302 and DSM302)




      The module status word returned from the module is the COMMREQ status word



      Max Communication Time

      Max time (ms) permitted for COMMREQ before time out error occurs



      Data Length

      Defined by the module (length of the data array to be transmitted or received)



      COMMREQ data word

      Contains the data sent to the module


      For the IC694APU300/301/302AC,IC693DSM302 & IC693ALG442 modules, the first double word of information in the COMMREQ is an encoded command to the module.

      A detail not included in the PME help is that Command is made of two parts : the upper word is the command itself while the lower word is used to either enable or disable the COMMREQ.

      i.e. The value 16#E2 is used for the APU300 and ALG442, while the value 1 (one) tells the driver to send the COMREQ to the module. A value of 0 (zero) in the lower word would prevent the driver from transmitting the COMMREQ to the module.
