Product Description

The IC697PCM711 is a Single-Slot Programmable Coprocessor (PCU) designed by GE for the Fanuc 90-70 series. The IC697PCM711 is equipped with a dual tasking module that can be programmed to perform various functions such as real-time computations, operator interface, and data functions that include storage, acquisition and communication. Communication from the module and the PLC CPU are by way of the backplane, and no application program support is needed. Several PCMs can be supported in a single IC697 PLC system, which can accommodate an optional expansion memory capacity of 512 Kbytes. Operation of the IC697PCM711 module can be done with or without an expansion memory daughter board. Base memory contains a maximum capacity of 95 Kbytes of user memory. The expansion memory daughter board allows expansion of program/data memory by 64,128, 256, or 512 Kbytes.

The power requirement for the IC697PCM711 module is 1.0amp, which is derived from the 5V bus. The lithium battery is conveniently located on the baseboard housing and supports memory; it has a shelf life of 10 years at 20 degrees Celsius or 64-degree Fahrenheit. Memory can be retained for six months without applied power. It is important to install a new battery before removing the old battery.

The IC697PCM711 module can be configured and programmed with various computer types such as the IC647 or IC640 or IBM-compatible PC, XT, or AT with PCM Development Software. The software is used to construct parameters for the serial port. The two serial ports are compatible and act at the same time. Jumpers and dip switches are not needed, but the board must be configured using the PCM software before operation can begin.
