Product Description

The IC697CPM915 is a 32 MHz, 32-Bit, Floating Point Central Processing Unit in the 90-70 Series manufactured by GE Fanuc.
 This CPU is programmed by MS-DOS or Windows software to conduct control of machines, processes, and material handling in real time. It communicates with I/O and smart option modules over a rack mounted backplane. 
Select features include a single slot CPU, 1 MB of same slot battery-backed memory, 12K mixed inputs and outputs, up to 8K analog I/O, and configurable data/program memory. The IC697CPM915 supports floating point calculations and performs at 0.4 microseconds per Boolean function.

A variety of option modules are supported, including all IC697 LAN interface modules, a number of co-processor modules, IC660/661 bus controllers, and discrete/analog I/O modules in the IC697 family.  IC697CPM915 stores operating system firmware via flash memory; however, storage of user program is not supported by this module. Firmware is updated without any need for disassembly or EPROM replacement. Firmware updates are conducted by connecting a compatible PC to the serial port and running Loader software provided.

This module can be operated by controlling the three-position RUN / STOP switch or by a remote attached programmer and corresponding software. Program/Configuration data is locked via password or manually using the keyswitch. If the key is “protected,” data can only be adjusted by a programmer linked parallel only to the BTM (bus transmitter module). Four green LEDs on the front of the module display CPU status.  IC697CPM915 should be properly installed using the manual provided. The battery can be connected to either connector. The toggle switch should be in the STOP position and the keyswitch in Memory Protection OFF position. Rack power should also be off. Then the module can be installed in slot 1 and power initiated.
