Product Description

The IC697CHS783 is a front/rear mount VME Integrator Rack with 17 slots designed by GE Fanuc.  
This IC697CHS783 rack for IC697 PLCs is designed to work with 3rd party VME modules and I/O configurations (not including redundancy applications). The 17-slot backplane ensures easy VME module integration.

Additional features of the IC697CHS783 include 10 inch deep rear rack mounts and standard 19 inch front rack mounts. Both plug-in AC/DC and DC IC697 power supplies are acceptable. The user may also choose an external power supply; however, an adaptor module is required in this case. Also included is provision for two rack operation based on single power supply as well as for high-current configurations. An optional kit may be ordered for adding the J2 backplane or for making ribbon cable connections. There is also an optional fan assembly available for high-power modules.

Each rack configuration will take one power supply in the module to the left position; however, power supply capacity is a factor that may limit module quantity in a rack. Up to three VME modules may be used in a rack with IC697 modules. The racks’ versatility allows both 3rd party modules through the use of jumpers on the backplane to configure slots. Integration of 3rd party modules occurs by moving the jumpers.

When mounting the IC697CHS783 rack, the user must leave sufficient room for airflow, which allows the module to cool properly. This is when a rack fan assembly is useful. Mounting requirements for front and/or rear are determined by the rack ordered. Mounting flanges are already included in the rack’s side panels. It is important to remember that the power extension cable must be attached before power is applied. The extension cable should not be connected while system is operating.
