Product Description

IC697BEM711 is a Bus Receiver Module (BRM)
from the series 90-70 designed by GE Fanuc.
Being a high-speed parallel bus expansion interface, IC697BEM711 comfortably permits expansion from the main rack to a maximum of seven additional IC697 PLC racks with up to 50 feet of interconnecting cable. The IC697BEM711 comes with convenient configuration software and requires no DIP switches. 

The IC697BEM711 module has a maximum weight of only 4 lbs. and has a single slot with two connectors. It is important to note that the IC697BEM711 BRM must always be installed in slot 1. Another notable feature of the IC697BEM711 is the use of LEDs to indicate continuous status of module, rack, and presence of the required I/O bus terminator plug. The IC697BEM711 holds last state operation of the output modules in case of possible loss of communications with the CPU. It also allows isolation and repair of a faulty module within the rack. 

Note: The IC697 PLC system can only be configured with IC697BEM711 by using an MS-DOS software program or Windows functionality. After selecting the configuration setting, the user will be prompted to confirm the RCM is present. Always refer to the Programmer Controller Installation Manual before attempting any installation.
