H Field Control Stations , Field Control I/O modules that are interfaced to the bus via a FIP Bus Interface Unit (BIU). H Remote Drops , Series 90-30 I/O racks that are interfaced to the bus via FIP Remote I/O Scanner Modules. Each remote drop can have one 5- or 10-slot main rack, one 5- or 10-slot expansion rack and any mix of discrete and analog I/O modules. H Generic Devices , such as general-purpose computers that are interfaced to the bus via a FIP Interface Module. H Variable speed drives . 1 1-2 Series 90 t -30 FIP Bus Controller User’s Manual – March 1996 GFK-1213 FIP Bus Controller Description The FIP Bus Controller is a standard, rack-mounted Series 90-30 PLC module. It plugs easily into the PLC’s backplane. The latch on the bottom of the module secures it in position. a46560 9-Pin FIP Fieldbus Connector (channel 1) 9-Pin FIP Fieldbus Connector (channel 2) 15-Pin Serial Connector RS-485 Module OK Run Carrier Detect Ch. 1 Transmit Enable Ch. 1 Carrier Detect Ch. 2 Transmit Enable Ch. 2 There are no DIP switches or jumpers to set on the module. The Series 90-30 FIP Bus Controller has six status LEDs, an RS-485 serial port, and two identical FIP bus connectors. Status LEDs The 6 LEDs on the front of the FIP Bus Controller display module status and commu- nications activity. Serial Port The 15-pin serial port is used to connect a programmer or computer for upgrading the operating firmware of the Bus Controller. FIP Bus Connectors The two 9-pin connectors on the FIP Bus Controller provide for attachment of one or two FIP busses. The two busses provide a redundant bus capability. 1 1-3 GFK-1213 Chapter 1 Introduction Module Specifications Ordering information IC693BEM340 Module type Series 90–30 PLC module, providing FIP communications with other devices.

For best performance, the main rack is required. Power must be OFF when installing or removing the module. To install the Bus Controller in the Series 90–30 PLC backplate: 1. Grasp the module with the terminal board toward you and the rear hook facing away from you. 2. Align the module with the desired base slot and connector. Tilt the module upward so that the top rear hook on the module engages the slot on the baseplate. 3. Swing the module downward until the connectors mate and the locking lever on the bottom of the module snaps into place, engaging the baseplate notch.
