Product Description

The IC697CMM741 is an ethernet programmable controller in the 90-70 series.
The IC697CMM741 controller is a member of the IC651 Factory LAN hardware and software product family. This group offers high performance solutions for interconnecting automation controllers. The IC697CMM741 controller is designed to be plugged into one slot in the IC697 PLC rack. 
The IC697CMM741 controller allows direct PLC attachment to IEEE 802.3 CSMA/CD LAN. It is equipped with a standard 15-pin AUI port connection and is designed for IC697 controllers. An AUI or transceiver cable can be supplied by the user. It uses a single slot in the PLC rack, and software is easy to load and/or upgrade. Additionally, software is saved through power outages for at least six months.

When installing the IC697CMM741 controller into the PLC rack, power should be turned OFF from the rack. Connect the battery with the front cover front-facing and the hinge to the right. The batter cable’s tab should face away from the board’s surface. Once the battery is connected to one of the connectors, simply press down to lock. Insert the controller into the appropriate slot (generally the first slot to the right of the CPU or the BTM. Do not force the board when locking. It is important to note that the Ethernet controller will not function correctly if there are empty slots to its left. CAUTION: The green ground wire must be securely fastened to the chassis of the rack, and the rack must be grounded to ensure the LAN’s functionality.
