October 31, 2002 GFK-2195 Important Product Information READ THIS INFORMATION FIRST Product: Series 90™-30 DeviceNet Slave Module Catalog Number; IC693DNS201-AA Firmware ID: Version 1.16 Boot Firmware Revision 1.00 EDS File: Version 1.04 9030Slave.eds Field Update Kit: N/A – initial release This is the first release of the Series 90-30 DeviceNet Slave Module. It supercedes the HE693DNT750 slave module for new applications. It may also be retrofitted into existing applications of the HE693DNT750 slave module, but its functional differences must be taken into account (see Operating Notes). NOTE The IC693DNS201-AA is scheduled for formal protocol conformance testing at an ODVA test facility. Results of this testing are still pending and certification is expected shortly. Compatibility Compatible with any Series 90-30 CPU except IC693CPU321 and IC693CPU340. Requires release 8.0 CPU firmware. The latest Release 10 is recommended, if available for the particular CPU. Requires CIMPLICITY Machine Edition Logic Developer PLC version 3.0 plus the appropriate service pack or special (or a version later than 3.0). Not compatible with the VersaPro™, Control, or Logicmaster™ programming software. The Series 90-30 Hand-Held Programmer (IC693PRG300) cannot be used to configure this module. New Features The Series 90-30 DeviceNet Slave Module allows a Series 90-30 PLC to send and receive I/O data from a DeviceNet network. Module features include: Support for all standard data rates (125K, 250K, 500K). Support for 255 bytes input data transfer and 255 bytes output data transfer. Support for Poll, Strobe, Cyclic and COS I/O Connections, Fragmented I/O and Explicit Messaging. Support for Unconnected Message Manager (UCMM) allowing up to 250 simultaneous explicit messaging connections. Support for the Assembly Object and access to the input and output data for each of the configured slave I/O areas (I/O Area 1 and I/O Area 2) via the SET_ATTRIBUTE_SINGLE and GET_ATTRIBUTE_SINGLE services. Up to 255 bytes of attribute data may be supplied in the SET_ATTRIBUTE_SINGLE operation. Configurable fault behavior on loss of communication. Firmware update via service port on module. 2 Important Product Information GFK-2195 Operating Notes Migrating from the HE693DNT750 Module If the IC693DNS201 Series 90-30 DeviceNet Slave Module will be used to replace a HE693DNT750 slave module in an existing application, the following differences must be taken into account: Configuration: The HE693DNT750 module must be configured via its serial port before adding it to the rack configuration of the PLC. No such initial module configuration is required for the IC693DNS201; all configuration is done using the programmer. Status Reporting: The HE693DNT750 module reports the following diagnostic status information to the ladder program: Bus Fault, Connection Established, and RECEIVE_IDLE active. It reports PLC RUN mode status in the diagnostic byte sent to the scanner. The IC693DNS201 DeviceNet Slave Module reports the following information to the ladder in the userconfigured location: server status, CAN status, and firmware revision. See the Series 90-30 DeviceNet Modules User’s Manual (GFK-2196) for more information. Get/Set PLC Registers: The IC693DNS201 DeviceNet Slave Module supports the same Get PLC Registers and Set PLC Registers services as the HE693DNT750 module. Fault Reporting: Fault reporting in the IC693DNS201 can be disabled to match the behavior of the HE693DNT750. Serial Port Functionality: The RS-485 port on the HE693DNT750 is used to supply configuration information to the module prior to PLC rack configuration. The RS-232 port on the IC693DNS201 DeviceNet Slave Module is used for firmware upgrades. Restrictions and Open Problems There are no known restrictions or problems associated with this module.
