Product Description

IC697MEM715 is a CMOS expansion memory manufactured by GE Automation and Controls.
IC697MEM715 is available in different versions: 64 KB, 128 KB, 256 KB, and 512 KB. Typically these memories are used to expand the data and logic memory in CPU 772/771 modules or in the programmable co-processor module (alternatively known as IC697PCM711). IC697MEM715 is configurable for both data and program storage.

IC697MEM715 is configured as a daughter board and is placed in the same slot as the module in which it operates. Memory of the base board and the daughter board are supplementary. In the event of power loss, memory is retained by the battery on the base board housing. Logic program memory is repeatedly error-checked by the PLC CPU as a background task by way of checksum routine. When power is cycled and during hard or soft resets, the PCM error automatically checks storage memory. IC697MEM715 does not require an additional slot for configuration, and it is adjustable for storage of the program and data.

IC697MEM715 uses MS-DOS or Windows programming as software for configuration. IC697MEM715 includes a lithium battery, which manages a calendar clock. In case of power failure, the lithium battery also retains the user memory. Battery shelf life is 10 years with an operating temperature of 20 0C or 68 0F. The ideal memory retention capacity of the battery is six months. Removal of the old battery should not occur unless installation of the new battery is complete. IC697MEM715 requires no tools required for installation and is field installable.
