Product Description

The IC697CMM742 module is an Ethernet Interface designed by GE for series 90-70 Type 2.
The IC697CMM742 module is equipped with three network ports that establish connection between the IC697 PLC and Ethernet LAN. The Ethernet interface module’s network port is standard and designed with 15 pins that offer a choice of 10Base5, 10Base2, 10BaseT, 10BaseF, or 10Broad36 medium with a user-supplied 802.3-compatible transceiver.

The IC697CMM742 Ethernet interface (type 2) also includes preloaded firmware for simple installation; additionally, firmware is easy to upgrade and maintained indefinitely. This interface provides data exchange via configuration/logic-based Ethernet global data, TCP/IP communication via SRTP, full PLC programming/configuration, and comprehensive station management/diagnostic tools.

The IC697CMM742 Ethernet interface is equipped with four LEDs: MODULE OK, LAN ONLINE, SERIAL ACTIVE, and STATUS OK. If diagnostics are successful, the MODULE OK LED will emit ON. If diagnostics fail, the LED will remain OFF. Blinking during diagnostics is normal and/or indicates special operation conditions. The LAN ONLINE LED will emit ON when connected to the network and ready. It will emit OFF if there is a disruption or malfunction. Blinking is normal to indicate transferring data. SERIAL ACTIVE will show OFF during inactivity and will blink during data transfer. STATUS OK is ON indicates normal operation. OFF indicates an event that needs the user’s attention, and again, blinking is normal.

The IC697CMM742 is also equipped with a restart button that has four purposes: LED test, restart, restart and enter software load state and restart and enter maintenance state. Please see the IC697CMM742 manual for additional information. 

The GE Fanuc IC697CMM742 TCP/IP Ethernet (Type 2) Interface Module is an Ethernet interface module that is designed for the GE Series 90-30 PLC systems. The IC697CMM742 Module  is designed for the high-performance IC697 PLC CPUs that are versions 6.00 and later. The IC697CMM742 TCP/IP Ethernet (Type 2) Interface Module is installed on the GE Series 90-70 PLC rack, and it requires +5 Volts DC and +12 Volts DC voltage from the PLC power for operation. It also draws 2 Amps of maximum backplane current at +5 Volts DC and 0.5 Amps of currents at +12 Volts DC. The IC697CMM742 Module supports the IEEE 802.2 Logical Link Control Class I LAN and the IEEE 802.3 media (CSMA/CD Medium Access Control 10Mbps) LAN, which is capable of operating directly on the 10BaseT and 10Base2 media via the 10BaseT and 10Base2 network ports on the module.

The IC697CMM742 Module has 3 network ports (a 10Base-T RJ-45 port, a 10Base2 BNC port, and the AUI port) that help to establish communication between the IC967 PLCs and Ethernet Local Access Network (LAN). The 15-pin RJ-45 network port and AUI port offers a choice of a 10BaseT, 10Base5, 10BaseF, 10Broad36, or 10Base2 medium with a user-supplied 802.3 LAN-compatible transceiver. The IC697CMM742 Module also has an RJ-11 Serial RS-232 local station manager port and a 15-Pin D-Type RS-485 software port. The 6-pin RJ-11 Serial RS-232 port is used for connecting a single terminal or a terminal emulator to access the station manager software over the Ethernet/IP network, while the 15-Pin D-type Serial software load port is used for connecting a PC running on the Logic Developer or VersaPro programming software to the module for a firmware update. The IC697CMM742 Module has 4 diagnostics and network LEDs which are the “MODULE OK,” “STATUS OK,” “SERIAL ACTIVE,” and “LAN ONLINE” LEDs that shows the module’s operation and network status updates.

Changing Timeout Value for an IC697CMM742


As Per GFK-1401B, there are some instances where the Timeout value for an Ethernet Interface may need to be increased for proper communications as follows:


Adjusting the Ethernet Interface Time-out Parameter for Dial-Up Networking

In some cases it may be necessary to adjust certain parameters in the Series 90 Ethernet Interface modules to work reliably with dial-up connections.

The TCP-Layer implementation on the Series 90 TCP/IP Ethernet Interface uses a retry mechanism that will cause a transmitted packet to be retransmitted if a proper acknowledgment is not received from the remote host (such as Logicmaster 90) within a specified time period. This time period is set by default to 1 second. While using Dial-Up Networking, this value may be too small and can cause excessive traffic through the network server device and, on Logicmaster 90, "(S34) Communication Failed" PLC faults.

If you are using Logicmaster 90 via Dial-Up Networking, GE Intelligent Platforms recommends setting this value to at least 3 seconds. Users of Series 90-70 IC697CMM742 Interfaces, Series 90-30 Ethernet Interfaces, and IC693CPU364 CPUs can change the value using the Station Manager function of the Interface. To do so, you must connect a terminal or terminal emulator to the Ethernet Module's Station Manager RS232 port using IC693CBL316 cable, put the module in Maintenance state, then do the following Station Manager command: CHPARM WMIN_TO 300. This changes the parameter wmin_to from 100 (default - 1second) to 300 (3 seconds). This change can be confirmed by typing PARM W. When satisfied, restart the Ethernet module to return it to the Operational state. For detailed instructions about using station manager commands refer to GFK-1186 TCP/IP Ethernet Communications for the Series 90 PLC, Station Manager Manual.

Users of IC697CMM741 should call GE Intelligent Platforms for a field-runnable utility to modify the Interface's WMIN_TO value.

Please refer to attached document that describes the step by step procedure. The Station Manager Utility is also attached.
