Product Description

Manufactured by GE Automation and Controls, the IC697CPU771 is a single-slot, Expandable Programmable Logic Controller CPU capable of controlling industrial machinery and processes in real-time.
To communicate with I/O and “smart option” modules, a rack-mounted backplane is used.


The IC697CPU771 has a 12MHz 80C186 microprocessor capable of 0.4 microseconds per Boolean function. This device supports up to 8K analog I/O and any mixture of 2K I/O. This device also supports a variety of smart option modules, including IC697 LAN Interface modules, coprocessor modules, communications modules, IC660 and IC661 bus controller I/O modules, and discrete and analog IC697 I/O modules.


The IC697CPU771 is configured by MS-DOS or by software programs running from either Windows 95 or Windows NT operating systems. Neither DIP switches nor jumpers are used for device programming. Connect the device to a computer running the previously mentioned software by means of a serial, parallel, or Ethernet interface. For security, device configuration is password-protected.


The IC697CPU771 requires a memory expansion board to store user and program data. This expansion board is capable of holding up to 512 kilobytes of memory. Memory is maintained by an on-board CMOS battery. Initialization of the CPU by an attached programmer computer is required when installing the memory expansion board.


Operation of this device is accomplished with either a three-position control switch or by a computer running the appropriate software. For precise installation and safety guidelines, see the product manual. Ensure that rack power is disconnected before installing. The three-position switch must be in the stop position. Connect the memory expansion board. The CMOS battery may be inserted into either of the battery connection slots. Then insert the device into slot one of the rack. Reconnect power to the rack. The device is now ready to program.

Customer Questions and Answers

  • Question:  What is an IC697CPU771?  Answer:  The IC697CPU771 is a 12 MHz, Expandable Central Processing Unit from the GE Fanuc 90-70 Series.
  • Question:  What will I need to test my IC697CPU771?  Answer:  You will need your IC697CPU771, a slot rack, and a power supply.
  • Question:  If the top LED is not on or is blinking when I test my processor- What does that mean?  Answer:  It means you definitely have something wrong with your processor.
  • Question:  How do I test the port that is on IC697CPU771?  Answer:  Go into Proficy Machine Edition, clear the controller fault table and/or the I/O fault table- nothing else. Then, click download and run. You want to download hardware, configuration, and logic. The only thing you are trying to do is get the processor into run mode.
  • Question:  What does each LED indicate?  Answer:  The top LED is the OK LED, the middle LED is the run enabled LED, and the bottom LED is the I/O enabled LED. 
  • Question:  What else should I test on IC697CPU771?  Answer:  You should test the toggle switch (that is under the LEDs). This toggle switch turns off the LEDs and you should simply make sure it works by flipping it on and off. 
  • Question:  What if I think there is a problem with my processor?  Answer:  You should leave it in run mode over night or over a weekend to check and see if it will stay in run mode. 
  • Question:  What if my IC697CPU771 won't stay in run mode?  Answer:  Then your IC697CPU771 may need to be repaired
