GE Fanuc Frequently Asked Questions

Memory, I/O capacity and price are the key differences between the IC697CPX935, IC697CPX782 and IC697CPX772 processors. This is also true with the IC697CGR935 and IC697CGR772 processors.

This unit has been discontinued because of chip availability issues. This can be a real problem for Logicmaster 9030 programming software users because you will need to move to GE Fanuc Proficy software when using the replacement IC693CPU374, or IC693CPU372 CPU's.

The Rx3i series IC695CPU310, and IC695CPU320 are faster processors and store the ladder documentation in the CPU. The base racks IC695CHS012, and IC695CHS016 have a much higher throughput than the 90-30 series IC693CHS391 base rack. The Rx3i series also offers additional modules that the 90-30 series does not.

No, all GE PLC Ethernet modules now include internal transceivers. You have the option if needed to convert to different media. The IC693CPU364 CPU has an AAUI port on the bottom. Therefore, there is not always a need for the IC693CMM321, IC697CMM741 and IC697CMM742.

No, the coprocessor chip became obsolete. The IC693CPU351 can be ordered, but it is very expensive. You would be better off using the IC693CPU350 or IC693CPU360 CPU's.

No. The HE693RTD600, HE693RTD601 and HE693RTD660 are made by Horner Electric APG for the Series 90-30.

Not always. Some blocks have revision issues and GE Fanuc had both Phase 'A' Genius blocks and Phase 'B' Genius blocks. Phase 'A' Genius blocks are not compatible. You are probably better off using just ABB blocks.

GE Fanuc modified Field Control to allow modules to be replaced while powered up. A special alignment bracket insures proper insertion on the IC670CHS101 and IC670CHS102?

The IC610CPU101 is the first release of the GE Fanuc Series ONE PLC. You can find some remanufactured CPU's, but be careful using the newer CPU's, as their instruction set may be different from the IC610CPU104, IC610CPU105 and IC610CPU106.

They are now obsolete. I could give the long drawn out history where they were made by Koyo, but suffice it to say that GE and Koyo had a falling out when the 90-30 came out. The IC655CPU500 can still be found installed in certain industries.

There are several retrofit upgrade paths for older GE PLC systems. Most include using our utility which converts ladder logic programs to the new GE system. The easiest upgrade is the one that continues to utilize most of the current I/O. GE Fanuc has done well with their I/O migration process. Under our support page you will find a solution for all older GE Fanuc PLCs.

Yes, we stock over 1000 Brand New GE Fanuc PLC parts and can ship them same day.

Yes, the IC693CPU374 PLUS version is the latest and may not be backward compatible depending on the application.

In most cases, we can repair the part within 24 hours if we are informed before the part arrives in our warehouse.

Yes, we ship to over 190 countries approved for US export. In many cases we can have parts delivered to other countries within a couple of days.

It has to do with the addition of the expanded instruction set. If you are not using the IC600CB515 module then either the IC600LR648 or IC600LX648K module will work.
