IC693CMM321-KL, with FW version 3.13, Removes unsupported AAUI port March 2010
READ THIS INFORMATION FIRST
Product: Factory LAN TCP/IP Ethe
rnet Interface Module for IC693 PLC
IC693CMM321-KL with Firmware Release 3.13
This hardware version of the CMM321 removes the AAUI port, which is no longer supported. If you
require this functionality, please contact Technical Support at
This module provides MODBUS/TCP Master and Slave f
unctionality. It provides network communications
using the SRTP (Service Request Transfer Protoc
ol) over standard TCP/IP
Protocol / Internet Protocol) on an Ethernet Local Area
Network (LAN). The Ethernet Interface supports
communication between Series 90 PLCs and PACSyst
ems Rx7i controllers equipped with TCP/IP
Ethernet Interfaces, and VersaMax PLCs equipped with EBI001 modules.

Firmware Field Upgrade Kit
The following field upgrade kit can be downloaded from the Support website at
A Station Manager cable (IC693CBL316)
is required to update the firmware.
attempt to upgrade your IC693CMM321 to release 3.13 unless your
Series 90-30 PLC has a reliable power source. DO NOT turn power off during
the upgrade process.
Firmware release 3.13 of the IC693CMM321 is compatible with these products:
IC693 PLC CPU firmware version 6.50 or later; restricted operation with CPU firmware 5.03 (6.03 for
Model 351 CPU). See “Additional Restrictions with
CPU Firmware Earlier than Version 6.50” on
PLC Logic Developer version 2.11 or later.
VersaPro version 1.01 or later. Version 2.02 or late
r is required to store hardware configurations that
contain module initialization files larger than 32,768 bytes.
Control programming software, version 2.01 or later.
Logicmaster 90-30 programming software IC693 version 6.01 or later.
Logicmaster 90-30 TCP/IP Ethernet version 7.01 or
later is required for Ethernet communication with
Firmware release 3.13 applies only to modules with hardware version -Fx or later. Users of
IC693CMM321-Ex and earlier modules can update by replacing their older Ethernet Interface module
with a later module. Hardware versions –Fx and
later may be upgraded to hardware version -Kx by
returning the module to the factory.
Problems Resolved by Firmware Release 3.13
Download may fail after repeated downloads to CPU311, CPU313, CPU323 or CPU331 via Ethernet
In previous versions, after repeated downloads
of configuration and logic to the EEPROMs of
IC693CPU311, IC693CPU313, IC693CPU323, C693
CPU331 via Ethernet using CMM321, download
would fail, causing the programming software to disc
onnect. This issue is resolved in CMM321 release
3.13. Configuration and logic are downloaded to EEPR
OMs successfully after
any number of downloads.
Important Product Information
Restrictions and Open Issues
The Ethernet Interface sometimes generates mult
iple exception log events and PLC Fault Table
entries when a single error condition occurs. Unde
r repetitive error condit
ions, the exception log
and/or PLC Fault Table can be completely filled with repetitive error messages.
Initialization errors that generate any of the fo
llowing exception log events should also restart the
Ethernet Interface into Maintenance state: event
1b, entry 2 = 0003h, event
1c, entry 2 = 25h, or
event 1c, entry 2 = 26h. The Ethernet Interf
ace does not restart in these conditions.
Use of the same IP Address by
this Ethernet Interface and by
another device on the same network
results in the PLC Fault Table message “Bad remo
te application request; discarded request.” This
condition should be identified more precisely.
When the client or server PLC scan time exceeds 100 ms, channels may fail with error codes 2411,
0B11, 9B90, 3F11, or 9590. The error code
s may be viewed by doing a Stat H command.
