Product Information

 

General: The IC693PCM301 is a Programmable Coprocessor Module (PCM) manufactured by GE Fanuc Automation North America, Inc.  It is a high-functioning microcomputer that is compatible with the Series 90-30 Modular CPUs (Programmable Logic Controller system). The programming languages supported by the IC693PCM301 include Modbus RTU, GE Fanuc CCM protocols, MegaBasic and C. This version of the PCM has a total memory of 192K and a user MegaBasic memory of 47K.  

Any CPU baseplate slot can host a IC693PCM301 with the exception of the CPU module's slot 1. Furthermore, a PCM doesn't function within the Expansion, Remote racks, or the Embedded CPU (CPU311, 313, or 323) rack.

Specific: The IC693PCM301 can be programmed to operate as a one or two independent CCM ports, a CCM port, and a MegaBasic application using one serial port or a MegaBasic application using one or both serial ports. These modules are used for communicating with programming terminals, CRTs, bar code readers, scales, printers, ASCII devices, RTU master devices, etc.

Ports: The two ports available on the IC693PCM301 are accessed by a common connector at the front of the model.  IC693CBL305 Wye cables split out the two PCM port connections from the single connector on the faceplate. The module has three LED indicator lights. While one flashes to convey the condition of the module, the other two LED lights function to indicate activity in the respective ports. The latter group of indicators are subject to configuration by the user.

Restart Pusbutton: The restart pushbutton of the IC693PCM301 allows the user to change the mode of the module between "Run" and "Program". IC690CBL701/702/705 cables provide a direct RS-232 connection between the PCM and various programmers’ serial ports. These cables are not supplied with the PCM modules.

Memory: The RAM memory backup is handled by a lithium battery that is mounted on the inner side of the module's faceplate. It requires connection prior to instalment. The battery is to remain connected as long as the program in RAM memory is to be stored. It is advisable to disconnect and remove the battery during long term storage.

To Format and Write To PCM301 EPROM Megabasic

Description

Using the EPROM in a PCM must be formatted in Megabasic.

Resolution

J (Format EEROM device)

Format: J ROM

This command causes an electrically erasable ROM (EEROM) device installed in a PCM 301 to be erased and formatted as the file device ROM:. Once the EEROM has been formatted, files can be loaded to and run from it just as they are in RAM:. Note that only the PCM 301, IC693PCM301, supports an optional EEROM device. Attempting to format an invalid device produces this message: Unknown device

Save rom: MyProg.pgm

Saves the program to the EEROM.

 

PLC90/30 Debugging a PCM Task Using TERMF Software

Description

Debugging a PCM Task using TERMF Software

Resolution

PCM Support Software (TERMF), revision 1.00 or later, is required for terminal emulation and file transfer between the PC and PCM. (Series 90-30 PCM model IC693PCM300, IC693PCM301, IC693PCM311)

PCM firmware version 3.00 does not include a runtime debugger. The best debug method currently available is to use printf statements to trace program execution and display program data. Applications which use both PCM serial ports for communication can log execution trace data to a PCM file or named memory module.

Series 90-70 PCM applications can log trace data to a reserved memory block in VME dual port memory. A second PCM can be used to read the data in VME master mode. When an application task locks up, the PCM task state dump facility can be used to diagnose the cause. For more information on this topic, see "Dumping PCM task state information" in GFK-0771A chapter 7, Multitasking.

Some developers of PCM C applications use hardware debuggers. See "Debugging Multiple Tasks" in chapter 7, Multitasking, for more information on hardware debuggers.

 

PLC90-30 Running a PCM Task Using TERMF Software

PCM Support Software (TERMF), revision 1.00 or later, is required for terminal emulation and file transfer between the PC and PCM. (Series 90-30 PCM model IC693PCM300, IC693PCM301, IC693PCM311)

The PCM R (Run) command is used to execute an .EXE file as a PCM task.

At the PCM prompt, type: R HELLO.EXE.

The file extension ".EXE" is required by the PCM command interpreter. When the program is executed, TERMF will display its output:

Hello, world!

Running as task of hex under VTOS version 3.00.

The Run command can also be used to load PCM programs from your PC. If the specified .EXE file has not been stored to the PCM, the command interpreter will ask TERMF to look in the current PC directory. If the file is found there, it will be loaded and then run.

 

Customer Questions and Answers


  • Question:  What is an IC693PCM301?  Answer:  The IC693PCM301 is a Programmable Coprocessor module from the GE Fanuc Series 90-30. This module is a high performance microcomputer designed to perform coprocessor functions in a Series 90 PLC system. It combines the function of the Communications Module (CCM) and the ASCII/BASIC Module (ABM) (both used on the Series Six PLC) into a single module with significantly greater capacity and performance than that of the ASCII/BASIC module. 
  • Question:  The configuration of this module can be to function as what?  Answer:  The configuration of IC693PCM301 can be to function as the following: one or two independent CCM ports, one CCM port and one MegaBasic application using one serial port, or one MegaBasic application using one or both serial ports.
  • Question:  Dual tasking does what in the IC693PCM301?  Answer:  It allows the PCM to run a MegaBasic program and support a CCM communications channel at the same time. 
  • Question:  All of the IC693PCM301's memory is supported by what?  Answer:  It is supported by a long-life lithium battery, located on the module.
  • Question:  How many slots does the IC693PCM301 occupy?  Answer:  Each IC693PCM301 occupies a single slot in a Series 90 rack. 
  • Question:  What should I do if my IC693PCM301 is not working properly?  Answer:  Your product may need repair, which we do here at PDF Supply.
