Upgrading the Bus Controller Firmware
To upgrade the Bus Controller firmware, connect the loading computer (PC) with the
new firmware to the (15-pin) serial port on the front of the Bus Controller. From the
loading PC, invoke the Loading Utility and follow its instructions to update the firm-

Hand-held Programmer Configuration
This chapter describes configuration steps for the Bus Controller using a Hand-held
Programmer (HHP). The module must be physically present to be configured by the
HHP. The HHP may be used to enter, change, or remove a configuration.
The Hand–Held Programmer must be connected to the power supply module and be
connected to the PLC. The PLC power must be ON and the PLC in STOP mode. The FIP
Bus Controller (FBC) must be installed in the desired slot.
Configuration of the FIP Bus Controller (FBC) includes choosing the Configuration
mode and setting its parameters.
