Product Description

The IC697BEM713 is a Bus Transmitter Module (BTM) from the series 90-70 manufactured by GE Fanuc. The IC697BEM713 module allows expansion from the main CPU rack when the system requires additional modules (up to seven added IC697 PLC racks). The high performance parallel programming function is an important feature. Additionally, this BTM is easy to configure and does not require the use of DIP switches.

The IC697BEM713
module resides in a single slot and has two connectors, a top connector for attaching to the programming device and a bottom connector, which is for a daisy-chained arrangement via BRMs to expansion racks. The bus transmitter module should be configured using the MS-DOS or Windows programming software configuration function.

Status LEDs (3) alert the user to issues with the port and/or module. The top MODULE OK LED will show ON when CPU software completes BTM configuration and has polled each system expansion rack. It will emit OFF when or if these conditions are not met. The middle Programmer Port Enabled LED may blink or show ON to indicate the programmer and the PLC are communicating. It will emit OFF when they are not communicating. The bottom Expansion Port Enabled LED indicates the status of the expansion bus. This LED may blink ON when the BTM is communicating with the Bus Receiver Modules or OFF if they are not.

When installing the IC697BEM713the user should have the appropriate programmer controller manual for reference. The power must be OFF before beginning. Once the module is installed in the main CPU rack, power can be turned out. It is important to note, however, that the module cannot be installed in slot 1. It must be installed to the right of any IC697 interrupt source modules.
