Parts of an I/O Block
A block consists of a matching Terminal Assembly and Electronics Assembly.. The
Terminal Assembly forms the base of the block. It is electrically and mechanically keyed
to accept only an Electronics Assembly of the same type (voltage, number of circuits,
wiring configuration). All field wiring connections are made to the Terminal Assembly.
All active components, I/O and communications circuits are located in the Electronics
Assembly. The Electronics Assembly can be removed without disturbing field wiring.
The block’s configuration is stored in the Terminal Assembly, so there is no need to
reconfigure the block if the Electronics Assembly is changed.

Locations for Genius I/O Blocks
Unlike conventional rack–mounted I/O modules, Genius I/O blocks can be installed
virtually anywhere, up to 7500 feet from the PLC or computer. They can be mounted on
equipment, in junction boxes, inside panels, behind operator stations, and in other
locations where space is limited. Blocks should be located in an area which is clean and
free of airborne contaminants. There should be adequate cooling airflow. In many
applications, Genius I/O blocks are installed in NEMA enclosures. Chapter 15 gives
guidelines for determining enclosure sizes.
Environmental Specifications
Genius I/O blocks meet the following specifications for vibration, noise. and ambient
temperature.
Vibration
Genius I/O blocks are compact and sturdy; they perform well in conditions where
vibration is a factor. All Genius I/O block designs are vibration–tested (according to
Mil–Std 810C and IEC 68–2–6) to meet the following specifications:
5 to 10 Hz .200 in displacement (peak to peak)
10 to 200 Hz at 1 g
Shock: 15G
Noise
Genius I/O blocks are resistant to noise levels found in most industrial applications when
installed according to accepted industry practices. This includes proper separation of
wiring by voltage and power levels, as explained in the Genius I/O System User’s Manual.
Blocks are tested to the following noise specifications:
Radiated:
FCC part 15, section J, class A, Computing Devices
Received:
NEMA ICS 2–230
ANSI/IEEE C37.90 (Relay and relay systems associated
with Electrical Power Apparatus)
Temperature
I/O blocks operate reliably in temperatures up to 60C (140F). Temperatures are
measured adjacent to the block at the bottom of the Electronics Assembly. Between 35C
and 65C (95–149F) each 10C reduction in the ambient temperature increases the
electronics Mean Time Between Failures by a factor of two.

Block Operation
A Genius I/O block is an intelligent module that sends and receives messages on a
communications bus.
The devices on the bus pass an implicit token, which rotates among the devices in
sequence from device 0 to device 31. This sequence is called a bus scan.

A block can send:
Input data (if the block has inputs).
Diagnostic fault reports.
A block can receive:
Output data from the CPU.
Commands from the CPU and Hand–held Monitor.
Inputs
A block (with inputs) continuously monitors data from its input devices and updates the
corresponding data. When the block receives the bus token, it broadcasts ALL its current
input data. The bus controller stores this data, making it available to the CPU. Even
blocks with no inputs put out a message when they get the token, to notify the bus
controller that they are present and on–line.

Outputs
As the application program executes, the CPU sends outputs and any commands to the
bus controller. The bus controller stores this data until it receives the bus token. Then, it
directs output data to each of the blocks on the bus, and commands to the appropriate
devices. Even blocks that have no outputs receive a null message from the bus controller
while it has the token. This permits the blocks to indicate that they are on–line with the
CPU, and to detect loss of communications should that occur.

Diagnostics
If a block detects a fault, the following things happen:
1.
The block’s Unit OK LED blinks to show that a fault exists.
2.
Unless the fault reporting feature has been disabled for the circuit where the fault
occurred, the block automatically sends a fault message to the bus controller and/or
monitoring CPU on the next available bus scan. This fault information is always
available to the Hand–held Monitor, which continually polls the block for updates.

For certain types of faults, the block takes corrective action in order to prevent
possible hazardous operation, or damage to the block. For example, for some output
faults, the block automatically turns the output off.
Faults may be cleared from the Hand–held Monitor or the CPU. If the condition that
caused the fault has not been corrected, the block sends another fault message after the
fault is cleared. If the block has shut down a circuit in response to a fault condition and
the condition has been corrected, the block restores that circuit to full operation as soon
as the fault is cleared.

Features and Benefits of Genius I/O
The potential benefits to be derived from using Genius I/O products include:
H
H
H
H
Reduced software engineering
Faster startup
Installation cost savings
Reduction in costly downtime
Genius I/O provides these cost savings through:
Configuration Flexibility: Many discrete Genius I/O blocks have programmable I/O
circuits, allowing any mix of inputs and outputs. That means a single 8–circuit block
would be field–configurable to any of 256 distinct combinations of inputs and outputs.
Intelligence: With a Genius I/O system, you can program many conventionally
hard–wired features of I/O systems. With Genius I/O, filter time constants, default
values, and other characteristics can be field–configured and customized for the
attached devices. Analog blocks have built–in engineering unit scaling. The cost and
productivity benefits are reduction in initial custom engineering and improved use of
equipment.
Reduced installation costs: for wiring, terminal blocks, conduit, and junction boxes.
Because Genius I/O blocks are mounted at the point of control, the distribution panels,
ducts, and auxiliary power supplies associated with most remote I/O systems are largely
avoided. Reduced installation cost comes from the simpler wiring and reduction in
custom panels and ducting – saving both materials and labor. Before programming
begins, the entire I/O system can be tested and possible malfunctions can be prevented.
Blocks can be removed and inserted without disturbing field wiring, which is connected
to the separate Terminal Assembly.
Advanced Diagnostics: In addition to being able to detect internal faults, a Genius I/O
system can detect open circuits, short circuits, overloads, and a variety of other faults in
the attached devices. Many faults can be detected before they cause a malfunction in
equipment. The system can detect the integrity of a control circuit before the circuit must
actually be energized. This is made possible by periodic “pulse–testing” under
microprocessor control within a Genius I/O block. The system can specifically isolate and
identify faults to the circuit level for prompt and accurate maintenance.
Circuit Protection: Many Genius I/O blocks provide electronic fusing and overload
protection. Blocks can shut circuits down within 5 microseconds of detecting circuit
faults, providing far more effective protection than thermal fuses. Short circuits and
overloads may be reset from the programmable controller or Hand–held Monitor.
Productivity benefits include reduced maintenance time and better protection of
equipment.

Beyond these benefits, the flexibility, power, and intelligence built into the Genius I/O
system can make production and equipment–design engineering easier; Genius I/O
systems will monitor, control and diagnose the next generation of devices in tomorrow’s
factories.

High–level analog signals on can be mixed on one block: ( " 10 volts DC, " 5 volts
DC, 0–10 volts DC, 0–5 volts DC, 1–5 volts DC, or 4–20 mA).
Linear conversions can be established for analog blocks, converting analog values to
engineering units.
High–level and low–level alarms on analog inputs will automatically warn of
undesired analog levels.
Over–range and under–range diagnostics automatically report analog values that
are out of range.
The Hand–held Monitor can force I/O on and off and perform wiring diagnostics
with or without the CPU connected. A system can be wired and debugged in stages
without a program ever having been written.
Diagnostics will detect I/O block additions and deletions at remote locations.
Selectable Input Filter Times permit customizing input response to ambient electrical
environment. Longer filter times can be used to reject electrical noise in harsh
environments.
Redundancy features can be used to provide protection from cable breaks, interface
module failure, or CPU failure. Redundancy features also permit the use of multiple
CPUs for distributed control or data monitoring.

Leave at least 1-1/2 inch (3.84 cm) of space between blocks, and 3 inches (7.62 cm) above
and below each block. This allows room for future use of a Block Puller to remove the
block’s Electronics Assembly. It also provides space for wiring (more space is desirable,
especially if wiring will be bundled together). If blocks will be located close together, it
may be easier to complete wiring before mounting the blocks. This is particularly true for
analog blocks and 32–Circuit DC blocks; wiring for those blocks enters the terminal strip
from the side.
GEK–90486D–2

If blocks are mounted in an enclosure,
there must be space for free flow of air
along each block’s Electronics Assembly
(the side opposite the Terminal
Assembly). Do not allow wiring
conduits, shelves, or other components
(including projections on the cover or
door) to inhibit cooling airflow around
the blocks. If an enclosure must be
located in direct sunlight, consider
placing a shade over it and/or painting
it white to reflect heat.

Making Bus Connections
Make the bus connections to I/O blocks using the cable type selected for the application.
Recommended cable types are listed in the Genius I/O System User’s Manual.
Caution
Do not mix cable types on a bus. Unreliable communications could
result.
Bus connections can be made using either a slotted screwdriver (0.25” x 0.04” or 6.35mm
x 1.0mm maximum blade size) or a Phillips screwdriver (size 0 or 1). The tie–down
screws can be removed to accommodate ring–type connectors.
Note
On new block, the tie–down screws are tightened. If a block is to be
moved after the tie–down screws have been loosened, they should be
re–tightened to prevent loose screws from falling into the packaging
material or equipment.
The bus cable connects to the Serial 1, Serial 2, Shield In and Shield Out terminals
(terminals 1–4). Connect the Serial 1 terminal of each block to the Serial 1 terminals of
the previous device and the next device. Connect the Serial 2 terminal of each block to
the Serial 2 terminals of the previous device and the next device.
Shield In of each block must be connected to Shield Out of the preceding device. For the
first device on the bus, Shield In can be left unconnected. For the last device on the bus,
Shield Out can be left unconnected.

Terminating the Bus at an I/O Block
For devices on either end of the bus, install the appropriate terminating resistor across
the Serial 1 and Serial 2 terminals. Impedance will be 75, 100, 120, or 150 ohms. 150 ohm
(IC660BLM506) and 75 ohm (IC660BLM508) resistor plugs can be ordered.
If blocks are connected using the prefabricated cables described above, attach the cable
to the first or the last block to exit toward the top of the block. A 150 ohm terminating
plug should then be installed across Serial 1 and Serial 2.

Bus Connections for Critical Processes
The recommended method of connecting the bus to an I/O block is to wire it directly to
the block’s Terminal Assembly as described above. These bus connections are normally
considered permanent.
Caution
Bus connections should never be removed while the completed system
is in operation; the resulting unreliable data could cause hazardous
control conditions.
If the possible removal or replacement of a block’s Terminal Assembly would result in
breaking the continuity of the bus, the bus should first be turned off.
If the bus controls critical processes that cannot be shut down, blocks can be wired to the
bus via an intermediate connector, as shown below.

This will allow the block’s Terminal Assembly to be removed while maintaining data
integrity on the bus. The connector shown is #A107204NL from Control Design, 458
Crompton Street, Charlotte NC, 28134. If blocks are connected to the bus in this way,
field wiring to the blocks should also provide a means of disconnecting power to
individualblocks.Alternatively, the wire ends can be soldered together before inserting
them into the terminals. When removing the Terminal Assembly, cover the ends of the
wires with tape to prevent shorting the signal wires to one another or to ground.

Grounding I/O Blocks
The Shield Out termination of each block is connected directly to the block’s chassis
ground. The Shield Out termination is capacitively coupled to Shield In. This breaks up
any differences in small ground voltages which may be present at different blocks on the
bus (up to 50V of continuous difference of ground potential).
Within each cabinet, use hardware such as star washers to provide ground integrity. A
ground wire (minimum size AWG #12) must be connected from the ground screw on
each Genius I/O block to the panel.

Warning
If the mounting screws do not make good ground connection and the
grounding screw is not connected to a reliable ground, the block is not
grounded, Electrical shock hazard exists. Death or personal injury
may result.
Normally a ground (green) ground conductor is routed from the building power system
to each control cabinet. Metal wire conduits should NOT be used as the only earth
ground connection.

Installing Additional Suppression
Additional suppression may be needed in some applications. Suppression may located in
the following places, depending on the source of the disturbance:
A. At the communications line.
B. Across the power line.
C. At the I/O points.
Suppression at the Communications Line
High transients on the communications bus may render some I/O blocks inactive and
turn their LEDs off. If that happens, cycling block power restores operation. To guard
blocks from the affects of high transients, suppression can be added at the
communications line.
For an individual block, suppression can be supplied by connecting two small MOVs
from Serial 1 and Serial 2 to the block’s Shield Out terminal:

MOVs
SHLD IN
SHLD OUT
Suitable MOVs include Harris part number V220MA2A, Panasonic ERZ–CO5FK221U,
and Siemens 505K140. If necessary, higher energy rated devices can also be used. It is
important to be sure that the MOV leads do not cause any shorts between the serial data
and shield connectors.
For blocks installed together in an enclosure, suppression can be added at the point
where the bus cable and power lines enter the enclosure, as shown on the next page.
Chapter 2 of the Genius I/O System and Communications Manual (GEK-90486-1) describes
the noise-rejection and filtering capabilities of the Genius bus. It explains bus wiring
practices for all applications. Chapter 2 also gives additional instructions for installing a
bus outdoors or between buildings, including recommendations for adding suppression
at the point where the bus enters a building.
Note
MOVs do a good job of absorbing transients on communications, control, and
power lines, provided the total energy of those transients does not exceed the
rating of the device. If the energy of the transient exceeds the rating of the
device, the MOV may be either damaged or destroyed. This failure may not be
visibly or electrically evident. MOVS should be regularly inspected for signs of
damage to assure continued protection against transients. For some
applications, periodic replacement of critical MOVs, even if they do not show
signs of damage, is recommended.

Suppression at the Power Line
Power line transients can affect any Genius block that has separate power inputs, such as
AC Isolated blocks and low level analog blocks.
Protection can be provided by connecting MOVs across the power lines (for instance,
between Hot and Neutral) and from line to frame ground (safety ground). This
triangular configuration requires three MOVs for each long power feed. If the total
power feed length is about 100 feet or less, one set of MOVs should be sufficient for any
number of blocks.
For a group of blocks installed in an enclosure, the MOVs can be installed at the point
where the power lines enter the enclosure. Ideally, MOVs should be used at each
cabinet in the system for maximum protection.
The following illustration shows suppression on both power lines and the
communications bus for blocks in an enclosure.

The axial-leaded LA series of MOVs from Harris is often used for this application. The
14mm size, model V130LA10 rated at 38 joules is usually sufficient. The MOVs used
should be capable of handling the line transients expected. Measurement of actual
transients may be required in extreme cases to decide what MOVs to use.
Suppression at I/O Points
Suppression may be needed:
A. At the inputs of some sensitive blocks, such as RTD blocks. Instructions for wiring
MOVs to RTD inputs are included with the RTD wiring information in chapter 14.
B. At a discrete output load, if there is excessive stored load energy, or if there is a
mechanical contact in series with a driven output coil.

Suppression at the Output Load
Most solid state controls include load suppression within the output drive. AC solid state
relays and proximity switches turn off at low currents with some internal suppression.
DC devices usually specify suppression if not included with the device. Additional
suppression is required if:
1.
The stored load energy to be dissipated exceeds the rating of the block’s output
suppressor during the turn–off discharge time.
2.
A mechanical contact is used in series with a driven output coil. Install additional
suppression such as a series resistor capacitor snubber to counteract electrical noise
that occurs when the coil is switched by the external contact instead of the block.
Resistor–capacitor suppressors are preferred for low-current high-inductance loads that
generate a high rate of change in voltage (dv/dt). High power loads beyond the capacity
of RCs use voltage clamping devices such as MOVs, which are usually available from the
manufacturer of the device. Resistor-capacitor suppressors are also preferred to MOVs or
transorbs because they reduce EMI in addition to absorbing load energy.
In general, the capacitor for an RC snubber should be the same value in microfarads as
the coil current in amperes, with the voltage rating at least twice the peak supply
voltage. The resistor is usually equal to the DC resistance of the coil. With DC coils, the
capacitor is usually replaced with a “flyback” diode oriented with the anode to the
negative terminal of the coil. The resistor helps maintain a fast dropout of the device; it
can be eliminated if this is not of concern.
Most control and contactor manufacturers make suppressor accessories that can be
conveniently mounted on their devices. The following types are available from GE
General Purpose Control, Bloomington, IL:

Consult other manufacturers for recommendations of equivalent suppressors for their
devices. Discrete components can also be used as discussed earlier. Pheonix Contact Inc.,
Weidmuller Inc., and other manufacturers make DIN rail mount suppressors for both
load snubbing and line surge protection.
If noise is generated by a protective contact that operates only in abnormal conditions,
not as part of the normal machine cycle, the best way to handle possible control
shutdown which may occur during machine faults depends on the application.
Normally, re–cycling block control power will enable resumption of operation.

Interfacing Small Loads to AC Blocks
The 115 VAC Low–Leakage 8 Circuit Grouped I/O block (IC660BBD101) is designed to
interface small loads to the bus without added resistance at the load. For other types of
discrete AC blocks, if individual output circuits will drive inductive loads drawing less
than 50mA, it may be necessary to add resistance to the circuit at the load.
When closed, electromechanical devices such as contactors, starters, or relays have very
high inductance combined with a low value of holding current.
When the output is off, the inductance of the coil can interact with the block’s
suppression capacitor to maintain a relatively high current level (15mA to 25mA) over
the entire voltage range. That can make dropout operation (opening the contacts)
marginal, or cause the device to remain in the ON position. When the device releases,
the increased air gap reduces the coil inductance to a low value. That causes the current
leakage to decrease to the nominal 10mA to 13mA range, and the load voltage drops to a
very low value. Since the current required to pick up (energize) the device is usually
higher than the holding current, the leakage seldom causes a related device to pick up.
This interaction between leakage currents and load characteristics may falsely suggest
that a relay is stuck for mechanical rather than electrical reasons. If this happens, test the
device. If necessary, add additional load resistance across the load.
External Load Resistance for Coils and Lamps
If added resistance is needed, locate it at the load, not at the I/O block. The added
resistance should bring the total current up to 100mA. For example, for the General
Electric CR4CA contactor the holding current is specified as 9.1VA. This equates to about
79mA of load current. To increase the load current to 100 mA, a 4K ohm resistor would
be added in parallel across the relay coil. In case of doubt, use a lower resistance/higher
wattage value.
Resistive loads are less critical than inductive loads. The OFF state open circuit voltage
of the output circuit is approximately 80 volts. The voltage decreases linearly as lower
resistance loads are applied. For a 1000–ohm resistor load, the typical output OFF state
voltage is 14 volts. Incandescent lamps rated at less than 5 watts may glow dimly. To
prevent this, use parallel resistance.

Adding or Removing a Block’s Electronics Assembly
All field wiring connections to a Genius I/O block are made to the block’s Terminal
Assembly, which is ordinarily permanently installed. This means the block’s Electronics
Assembly can be removed and replaced without disturbing field wiring, entering
addressing, or reconfiguring the block. The Terminal Assembly is mechanically keyed to
accept only an Electronics Assembly of the same type (voltage, number of circuits, wiring
configuration).
Removing an Electronics Assembly
A Block Puller (IC660BLM507) should always be used to remove or insert an Electronics
Assembly.
Caution
Use of a Block Puller prevents damage to the block connectors that can
result from manual removal. Such damage may result in unreliable
operation under high vibration conditions.
To remove an Electronics Assembly:
1.
Unscrew the retaining screws at the top and bottom of the block.
2.
Engage the tabs on the Block Puller in the first vent slots. Move the tool to the
center of the block and squeeze the handle.

An operating block may be hot to the touch. Test the surface of the block before
grasping it.
Warning
If power is applied to the field terminals, power is also exposed on the
connector pins at the base of the Terminal Assembly, and electrical
shock hazard exists. Do not touch the connector pins! Death or injury
may result.
Installing an Electronics Assembly
To replace an Electronics Assembly:
1.
Align the Electronics Assembly within the guides and push it down quickly.
Caution
Do not exert excessive force. Damage to the equipment might result.
If unusual resistance is met, remove the Electronics Assembly. If power is applied to
the block, DO NOT TOUCH THE CONNECTOR PINS! Inspect the Terminal
Assembly, connector receptacle, and connector edge board (on the Electronics
Assembly). Be sure the keying matches. Remove any obstacles and reinsert the
Electronics Assembly. Pay close attention to the alignment of the guide pins.
2.
Secure the Electronics Assembly with the screws on the top and bottom of the
Terminal Assembly.
Caution
If the retaining screws are loose, the connector pins may not make
contact correctly. This could result in faulty block operation.
Replacing a Block or Terminal Assembly
Do not add or remove a Genius I/O block or Terminal Assembly while the system is
operating unless the bus has been attached using a bus connector (see page 2-5), or the
bus wires have been soldered together.
Caution
Adding or removing an entire Genius I/O block or a Terminal
Assembly without taking these precautions may disrupt
communications. This may cause erratic operation or lead to system
shutdown.

If a removable connector has been used or the signal wires are soldered together, the
block’s Terminal Assembly can be replaced without powering down the bus.
If possible, do not remove the Terminal Assembly until a replacement is available. Then
replace the Terminal Assembly or block by following these steps carefully:
1.
If the block is still receiving power, remove power from the block. Take care to
ensure continued operation of any other devices wired to the same power supply.
Warning
Hazardous voltages may be present at the block’s field wiring
terminals while the block is receiving power. Death or injury may
result from contact with field wiring terminals.
2.
If a bus connector has been used, remove the bus connector from the Terminal
Assembly. Do not remove the bus wiring from the connector. The connector will maintain
continuity of data transfer on the bus.

The features of the configuration Main Menu.
How to assign a block’s required features.
How to assign additional block features.
Configuration Overview
Configuration is the process of selecting the features that will be used by a Genius I/O
block. Configuration includes:
1.
Assigning a Device Number to the block. This step, which requires a Hand–held
Monitor, must be done before any additional configuration can take place.
2.
For some CPU types, it is necessary to assign a Reference Address for the block’s I/O.
This also must be done with a Hand–held Monitor.
3.
Making sure the block’s configured baud rate matches that of other devices on the
bus.
4.
Selecting other features that are appropriate for the application. Block
configuration is simple, since all blocks come supplied with a set of default selections
for each feature. Therefore, configuration is only a matter of changing those
features that are appropriate for the application. Among the features of Genius I/O
blocks that can be configured are fault reporting, redundancy, and the assignment of
inputs and outputs on most discrete blocks. This configuration is usually done with
a Hand–held Monitor, but it can be done from the CPU.
5.
Protecting the block’s selected features so they will not be accidentally changed.
Many of a block’s configurable features can be changed at any time, even while the
system is in operation.
Blocks can be configured before or after installation on a properly–terminated serial
bus. If a new, factory–shipped block is to be added to an existing bus running at a baud
rate other than 153.6 Kbaud standard, the block must first be configured off–line. In
general, special care must be taken when adding new blocks to existing systems. Always
verify beforehand that the baud rate programmed for use by the new block corresponds
to that of the system – never mix baud rates on a single bus.

What each block’s Device Number (address on the bus) should be.
The beginning Reference Address for each block’s I/O, if required for the type of
CPU controlling the bus.
The baud rate that will be used by the bus and all its devices.
Which of the block’s default features (for example, I/O mixture, Input Filter Time or
Alarm Thresholds) should be changed by configuration.
If you do not have the necessary information, do not try to configure any blocks.
Configuration Protection
All Genius I/O blocks can be configured for Configuration Protection, which prevents
unwanted or accidental changes. On a new block, Configuration Protection is disabled,
so the block is ready to configure for the application.
Removing Configuration Protection
On a previously–configured block, it may be necessary to disable Configuration
Protection to make changes. Configuration Protection can only be set and removed with
a Hand–held Monitor; it CANNOT be changed from the application program.
Use the HHM to step through the block configuration screens (the HHM does not have
to be connected directly to the block). The final screen that appears is the Configuration
Protection screen.

Setting Up a Block for Off–line Configuration
It may be most convenient to configure new I/O blocks offline at a central location. Each
block will need to be connected to an appropriate source of power and to earth ground.
To prepare a block for off–line configuration:
1.
Connect a 75 ohm resistor across the Serial 1 and Serial 2 terminals, or use the 75
ohm terminator plug (IC660BLM508). Two of these plugs are provided with each
Bus Controller.
2.
Attach a grounding strap to the ground screw on the side of the block. Be sure that
the strap is connected to earth ground.
Warning
If the block is not properly grounded, hazardous voltages may exist.
Death or injury may result.
3.
Wire the block to the power source.

Device Number
The first step in configuring a new block is to assign its Device Number. This is a number
from 0 to 31 representing the serial bus address of the device.
There are 32 available addresses on a serial bus. One is needed for the Hand–held
Monitor, typically this is device number 0. Another is needed for the bus interface
module. Typically, this is device number 31. I/O blocks are usually assigned device
numbers 1–30. When shipped from the factory, an illegal Device Number is assigned.
This means that a legal number must be assigned before doing anything else. Duplicate
Device Numbers disrupt communications and are not permitted.

Reference Address
A block’s Reference Address is the beginning CPU reference for its I/O data.
For a Series 90 PLC, this entry may be optional, depending on the Logicmaster 90
software version and Hand–held Monitor version.
With some Hand–held Monitors, a Reference Address cannot be entered with the HHM
in Series 90/PCIM mode. If the Hand–held Monitor permits entry of a Reference
Number in Series 90 host mode, enter in the same reference assigned to the block with
the Logicmaster 90 programming software. The Series 90 PLC and Hand–held Monitor
will not check that the reference assignments match, so be sure to enter the correct
Reference Address.
For a Series Six PLC, this is a required entry.
Note
If you select register references for a Series Six PLC, the PLC will not
receive automatic fault reports from the block.
For a Series Five PLC, this is a required entry. Either an I/O or register reference can be
selected. You may prefer to use register references for analog I/O block to save space in
I/Omemory. If you select register references, all Genius I/O features will be available.

Block I/O Type
For a discrete block with configurable I/O types, select whether the block will be an
inputs–only , outputs–only, or combination block. The default is inputs–only.
If all circuits will be regular inputs or tristate inputs, the block can be configured as
Inputs Only. It will require 1 input reference per circuit, and NO output references.
If all circuits will be outputs, and no feedback analysis will be needed, configure the
block as Outputs Only. The block will require 1 output reference per circuit, and NO
input references.
Configure the block as Combination if it will have both inputs and outputs, or if output
feedback analysis will be done on a block with all outputs. The block will require 1 input
reference AND 1 output reference per circuit. For example, a 16–circuit discrete block
configured as a combination block uses 16 input references and 16 output references.

Using Output Feedback
When a block is configured as a Combination I/O block, each circuit is assigned
both an input reference and an output reference. For each circuit configured as
an output, the block will automatically return the actual state of the output in the
corresponding input reference. For example, if circuit 1 is configured as an output,
then input reference 1 will show the state of output 1.
The application program can compare the feedback information with the output
data it has sent to the block (after an appropriate delay) to verify that the output
switching device has operated properly and that the load has the proper voltage
and current applied.

Baud Rate
Genius I/O blocks can use four different baud rates: 153.6 Kbaud standard, 153.6 Kbaud
extended, 76.8 Kbaud, or 38.4 Kbaud. The default is 153.6 K baud (standard).
Lower baud rates may be needed for longer cable lengths. However, this increases bus
scan time. 153.6 Kbaud extended provides better noise immunity and allows longer
cable lengths than 153.6 Kbaud standard; there is a slight increase in scan time. Each
block’s baud rate must be the same as that used by all other devices on the bus, or the bus will not
operate. If baud rate is changed for one device, it must be changed for all of them. If
there are any phase A Genius I/O products on the bus (see the Genius I/O System User’s
Manual for a list of phase A devices), the baud rate for all devices on the bus must be
153.6 Kbaud standard.

1.
If the baud rate should be changed, press F2 (toggle). Press F3 (enter).
2.
If the baud rate is changed on any block that is currently installed on an
operating bus, it must be changed on all devices on that bus. After changing the
baud rate, you must cycle power at the same time to all devices on the bus to use
the new baud rate.

Configuring Other I/O Block Features
All Genius I/O blocks have additional features, which can be configured either from a
Hand–held Monitor or using Write Configuration datagrams from the CPU.
Descriptions of these features, and instructions for configuration, are included in the
chapters that follow. For each configurable feature, there is a default selection which is
suitable for many applications.
If the block is online to an operating bus, a simple alternative to selecting individual
features is to copy the configuration of one block to another as explained below.
Copying Block Configuration
Features can be copied from one block to another block on the same bus. This feature is
very convenient when a number of blocks are to be configured similarly. The block
being copied TO (the target block) must have had its Device Number, baud rate, and
reference number (for a PLC) previously entered.
Copy Configuration Steps
1.
The block whose option selections are to be copied must be the active block (if
necessary, go to the Block/Bus Status screen to select and activate the block to be
copied):
A. Put the Hand–held Monitor into the Block/Bus Status menu.
B. Locate the target block.
C. Press the F4 (ACTV) key. The letters A C T appear on the second line of the
display. Return to the Home Menu. Select F3 (Configuration).
2.
From the Configuration menu, press F3 (Copy Configuration). The HHM Shows:
COPY CONFIG
FROM: n TO:
chng entr
3-12
3.
The Device Number of the active block appears next to the word FROM. Enter the
Device Number of the block you want to copy the configuration options TO. Press
F3 (Enter).
4.
Press the F4 (Execute) key. The configuration will be copied to the other block. The
Reference Address is not copied. It can be entered as previously described via the
Program Block ID screen.
5.
If the target block is similar but not identical to the source block, use the Configure
Block screens to finish up configuration.

Block Groups for Copying Configuration
The block being copied from (the source block) and the target block must be of the same
type. Within each group shown below, any block may be used as the target block or the
source block. If the target block has more features than the source block, these can be
individually configured later. If the target block has fewer features than the source
block, the extra features are not copied.

Finishing Up
If you have finished block configuration and the Hand–held Monitor will not be used
for more configuration changes, you should disable the Block Configuration feature in
the HHM Utilities menu and remove the key. Turn off HHM power.
After a Block is Configured Offline
When you finish configuring a block that is not installed, turn off power to the block.
Remove the power wiring and resistor. The configuration you have entered will be
saved in the block’s Terminal Assembly EEPROM.
Entering Information on the Block
After configuring a block, record circuit information (such as a circuit’s I/O type and
Reference Address) on the block’s label. That is especially important if you are
configuring many similar blocks off–line prior to installation. In addition, be sure to
indicate the block’s configured baud rate on the label.

Circuit LEDs
Each circuit has its own LED. If the circuit is configured as an input, the LED indicates
the presence of threshold voltage at the input terminal. If the circuit is configured as an
output, the LED indicates the state commanded by the CPU.
Inputs and Outputs
The block can be configured as combination input/output block, inputs–only or
outputs–only blocks. Regardless, the block always broadcasts one byte of data each bus
scan, and accepts one byte of data each bus scan.
If the block is configured as a combination block, circuits can be any mix of inputs and/or
outputs. In this configuration, the block will use 8 input references and 8 output
references. The actual state of each output circuit will be returned to the CPU in the
corresponding input reference location. The CPU can monitor the feedback state to
verify (after an appropriate delay) that the output switching device has operated
properly and that the load has the proper voltage and current applied.
If the block is configured as an inputs–only block, all circuits must be regular inputs or
tristate inputs. The block will use 8 input references and NO output references.
If the block is configured as an outputs–only block, all circuits must be outputs; no
feedback analysis will be performed. The block will use 8 output references and NO
input references.
Appendix B shows reference usage for a Series 90, Series Six, or Series Five PLC.

Diagnostics
115 VAC 8 Circuit Grouped I/O Blocks perform the diagnostics described below. A block
reports all faults to the Hand–held Monitor, and takes appropriate corrective action.
Individual circuits can be configured not to send diagnostic messages to the CPU if a
fault occurs. If the CPU requests diagnostic information from the block using Read
Diagnostics datagrams, the block returns current diagnostics for all circuits, including
any with CPU fault reporting disabled.
Overtemperature Diagnostic
Each circuit has a built–in thermal sensor. If the block’s internal temperature exceeds
100C, the block sends an OVERTEMPERATURE message and turns off the circuit to
protect its internal electronics. This diagnostic is always performed for both inputs and
outputs.
Short Circuit Diagnostic
Automatic output diagnostic. Output circuits are protected by a short circuit level sensor
at the switching device. If the instantaneous current on an output exceeds 30 amps
during the first two line cycles or 20 amps thereafter, the block turns the output off
within microseconds. The block will try to restart the load; if several attempts are
unsuccessful, the output circuit is forced off and the block sends a SHORT CIRCUIT
message. To restore normal operation to output the cause of the current surge must be
removed, then the diagnostic must be cleared from the HHM or the CPU.
Failed Switch Diagnostic
The block automatically monitors all circuits for several types of faults, which may be
reported as Failed Switch diagnostics.
For an output, Failed Switch is reported if the circuit’s switch state is not the same as its
commanded state. The block sends a FAILED SWITCH message identifying the failed
circuit. The logic state of the circuit is set to OFF.
When an output fault occurs, the actual condition of the output switch is not known. If
the output switch has failed shorted (or closed), current flow is not interrupted when the
block forces the output state OFF. Action external to the block must be taken to remedy
the problem. The FAILED SWITCH message can alert personnel or cause program logic
to be activated, possibly shutting off power to the block, I/O section, or process.
Note
False Failed Switch diagnostics may be reported if an external device like a
manual switch is wired in parallel with an output. Even if Fault Reporting for
the circuit is disabled, it will be necessary to clear each Failed Switch fault
detected by the block. If the application requires such a configuration,
115VAC/125VDC Isolated I/O Block version IC660BBS101 (no Failed Switch
diagnostic) should be used instead.
Several additional switch faults independent of the output state are detected and
reported as Failed Switch faults on both input and output–configured circuits.
Examples include loss of communications with the block’s internal microprocessor and
some internal power supply faults.

Open Wire Diagnostic
The block automatically performs this diagnostic on any circuit configured as a tristate
input. It will detect an electrical (not mechanical) malfunction. In addition to being
configured as a tristate input, the circuit must have a 5.1K ohm, 1/2 Watt or larger
non–inductive resistor placed as close as possible to the actual dry contacts (such as
across the field device terminals).

With the switch closed (ON state), the circuit senses the low source impedance. With the
switch open (OFF state), the circuit senses the added resistance. If a wire is broken, cut
or removed, impedance becomes very high. The block will transmit 0 as the state of the
input, and send an OPEN WIRE message.
Since faulty input circuit option monitoring requires specific current flows, devices as
photo–sensors, electronic high–speed counters, instrumentation, fiber optic sensors,
and similar electronic devices cannot be monitored for Open Wire conditions. Such
devices should be set up as standard, not tristate, inputs.
GE offers compatible input devices including a 5.1K ohm monitoring resistor with its line
of General Purpose Control sensor devices.
No Load Diagnostic
The optional No Load diagnostic can be enabled or disabled for individual outputs.
For a new block, outputs are configured to report No–Load conditions. In this
configuration, energizing the output activates a no–load current level. If the load does
not continuously draw 50 mA from the output circuit, the block sends a NO LOAD
message. Because this diagnostic monitors both current and voltage, a No Load
condition may cause an HHM monitoring an operating block to display 0 for the circuit
although there is voltage at the output and the circuit LED is on.
This diagnostic should be disabled for circuits on which very small loads (small relays,
transformers, or indicating lamps) will draw less than 50 mA.

Overload Diagnostic
Like No–Load detection, this diagnostic is optional for individual outputs.
In addition to the protection provided by the block’s built–in Short Circuit detection,
Overload Shutdown provides further protection for output loads, field wiring, and
switching devices. If a load exceeds 2.8 amps (2.0 amps RMS) continuously for 100mS,
the block will turn the output off and send an OVERLOAD message if Overload
Shutdown is enabled.

For loads that require more than 2 amps RMS, individual outputs can be configured not
to shut off at this level or send the OVERLOAD message. These restrictions apply:
1.
Maximum load current: 10 amps RMS
2.
Maximum duty cycle: limit duty cycle so that: (Load current) x (% ON) is less than
1.0 amp.
3.
Maximum ON time: 1 minute
4.
Maximum total current of all outputs ON at the same time is less than 15 amps.
For example, a maximum 10 amp load can be pulsed at a 10% duty cycle, or up to 1
minute ON and 9 minutes OFF. Higher repetition rates can be used if the duty cycle is
maintained. Exceeding the 10 amp limit may cause a short circuit fault to be generated.
The duty cycle derating to an average of 1 amp output current and the ON time limit are
necessary to avoid overheating due to the increased power dissipation in the block at
these high currents. Exceeding these limits may cause an overtemperature fault.

Field Wiring
Field wiring connections are standard screw,
clamp–type terminals which can be operated with
a flat or phillips–head screwdriver. Each terminal
accepts one AWG #12 or two AWG #14 wires. The
minimum recommended wire size is AWG #22.
The terminals can accommodate spade or ring
terminals up to 0.27 inch (6.85 mm) in width with a
minimum opening for a #6 screw, and up to 0.20
inch (5.1 mm) depth from the screw center to the
back barrier. Be sure unshielded wire ends are not
longer than 2 inches (5 cm).

on the physical layout and current loads, hot
connections can be bussed together and made by
one wire to the block or power source. Neutral
connections can also be bussed together and made
by one wire.
Any circuit can be an input or output. The power
source is connected through an input device (such

For outputs, power is routed through the block
electronics to a discrete circuit and applied to a load.
The load return connects to the N terminal.

Features marked with an asterisk in the table are configured from the Program Block ID
screen of the Hand–held Monitor, as explained in chapter 3.
The rest of the features can be configured either using a Hand–held Monitor, or by
sending a Write Configuration datagram to the block from the host.
Before configuration begins, the block’s features should be decided on and recorded on a
copy of the Configuration Worksheet printed on the next page.
Note
If the block will be used on a bus controlled by a Series Five PLC or a host
computer and the block will be configured as an all-inputs block, the
GENI daughterboard on the Series Five bus controller or computer bus
interface module must be version 1.5 or later. If not, the block cannot be
used as a BSM Controller, and its I/O Enabled LED will not operate
properly.
The daughterboard can be upgraded using kit 44A286366–G03 (or later).

Pulse Test
A new block is configured to enable Pulse Testing (see below). Pulse Testing should
remain enabled if the block has loads that hold one state for long periods of time, unless
any load(s) are sensitive to pulses or interruptions of up to 8mS. It should be disabled if the
block’s loads will normally change state as the program executes. These outputs will
report faults during normal operation, and do not need to be pulsed.

Pulse Testing Outputs
Outputs can be pulse–tested from a Hand–held Monitor or by sending a Pulse
Test command from the application program.
Pulse Testing tests the continuity of each output circuit including the switch device,
power source, wiring, interposing devices (fuses, circuit breakers, terminals), and
output device. It works whether or not there is minimum current to check for a
No–Load condition. Pulse testing does not activate mechanical devices such as
motor starters, relays, or solenoid valves.
Pulse Testing should momentarily cause outputs that are OFF to turn ON and
outputs that are ON to go OFF. Pulse testing may generate the following
diagnostics:
Failed Switch: If the output does not change state when pulsed.
Short Circuit:
If the load on an output that was OFF exceeds 30 amps when
pulsed ON.
No Load:
If the load on an output that was OFF draws less than 50 mA
when pulsed ON.
If the output was OFF, no current flow when the output is pulsed indicates an
open circuit or failed switch. Similarly, continued current flow when ON outputs
are pulsed OFF indicates a shorted switch (both malfunctions are reported to the
CPU).

Input Filter Time
The block continuously samples each input for the length of the configured input filter
time period. If the input remains either ON or OFF during that time, the block
recognizes its state. For example:
a42504
OFF
ON
STATE
20mS
SIGNAL
Sampled Inputs
ON for 5mS
not recognized
IF FILTER TIME = 20mS
Sampled Inputs Sampled Inputs
ON for 30mS
OFF for 3mS
recognized by block not recognized
The input filter helps reject spurious noise spikes and multiple inputs generated by the
bounce of mechanical devices. An input filter time of 10mS to 100mS can be selected for
the block. The default filter time is 10mS (no filter).
In controlled, noise–free environments, signals generated by clean, solid state
electronics may be unnecessarily slowed by a filter, delaying system response. In such
an environment, no additional filter time is needed.
In noisy environments, use a longer filter time to prevent noise from possibly causing
erratic or unsafe system operations.
For a block with tristate inputs, the minimum recommended Input Filter Time is 50mS.

I/O Circuit Type
Selecting Block I/O type (on the Program Block ID screen) determined whether the
block would be an all–inputs, all–outputs, or combination block. The I/O type of each
circuit is specified on the screen shown below. If you haven’t selected the Block I/O
Type, and the block should be an outputs-only or combination I/O block, see page 3-10
for instructions before continuing.
If the Block I/O Type selected was Combination, each circuit can now be configured as an
input (I), output (O), or tristate input (IT). Select Tristate Input for any input circuit that
should report the Open Wire diagnostic (resistance must be added at the input device).
If the Block I/O Type is all–inputs, each circuit can be either an regular input (I) or a
tristate input (IT). Select Tristate Input for any input circuit that should report the Open
Wire diagnostic.
If the Block I/O Type is all–outputs, each circuit must be an output (O).

Report Faults to CPU
Fault reports to the host can be disabled or enabled for any circuit.
If fault reporting is disabled, the block does not send fault reports to the CPU for that
circuit. If fault reporting is enabled, the block sends a message to the host if any fault
occurs on that circuit.
Regardless of whether fault reporting is enabled, the block detects faults on the circuit
and takes appropriate action. If a fault occurs, the Unit OK LED blinks and a fault report
is sent to a Hand–held Monitor. The fault condition must be corrected for proper
operation of the block.
If the CPU requests diagnostic information from the block using Read Diagnostics
datagrams, the block returns current diagnostics for all circuits, including any with CPU
fault reporting disabled.

Hold Last State
Each output can be configured to either hold its last state or to go to its powerup default
state if the block loses CPU communications for at least 3 bus scans.
For a new block, Hold Last State is disabled for each output. With Hold Last State
disabled, the block sets the output to its powerup default if CPU communications are
lost.
If Hold Last State is enabled, the block continues to hold the output in its current state
instead of setting it to the powerup default.
Outputs remain in their last state or default indefinitely or until one of the following
occurs:
H Communications with the CPU are restored.
H The Hand–held Monitor changes the output by forcing it.
H Power is removed from the block.

Output Default State
An output goes to its powerup default state when the block is first powered up.
If the Hold Last State feature is NOT enabled, the block also defaults the output if CPU
communications are lost. On a non–redundant system, default occurs approximately
250mS after the third bus scan passes with no CPU communications. If the block is on a
redundant bus downstream of a Bus Switching Module, more time is needed.
Additional default time for redundancy is explained on page 4-19.

Report No Load
On a new block, each output is configured to report No–Load diagnostics. This
diagnostic activates a no–load current level when the output is energized. If the load
does not continuously draw 50mA from the output circuit, the block sends a NO LOAD
message.
You should disable this diagnostic for any output where a very small load (small relay,

Overload Shutdown
The Overload Shutdown feature protects output loads, field wiring, and switching
devices from excessive current. If a load exceeds 2.8 amps (2.0 amps RMS) continuously
for 100mS and Overload Shutdown is enabled, the block turns the output off and sends
an OVERLOAD message.

A BSM Controller is a block to which a Bus Switching Module is directly attached, which
controls the BSM’s switching action. Selecting a block to be a BSM Controller block has
no effect on the block’s I/O type – the block can still be configured as an inputs–only
block, but circuit #1 cannot be physically used as an input. The first circuit will not be
under CPU control.
To change this configuration with a Hand–held Monitor, the block must first be
configured for BSM PRESENT. The BSM CONTROLLER menu will not appear if BSM
PRESENT is set to NO.

Output Default Time
When a Bus Switching Module is used, the Output Default Time must be long enough to
allow the BSM to switch without causing outputs to default. Therefore, when BSM
Present is selected (above), the block automatically changes its Output Default Time
from 3 bus scans to 2.5 seconds.
If the Hold Last State feature is set to YES, outputs will remain in their last state while
the BSM switches, instead of defaulting, so there is no need to change this selection.
If Hold Last State is set to NO for any output on a block, and total bus scan time will
exceed 100mS, you should change this selection to 10 seconds.

CPU Redundancy
These blocks can be configured for No CPU Redundancy, Hot Standby or Duplex
redundancy. For new blocks, it is set to No Redundancy. It must be changed only if the
block should be able to receive output data from two CPUs.
In Hot Standby mode, a block receives output data from both CPUs but uses the data
from only one of them to drive its outputs. The block prefers outputs sent by the bus
controller with Device Number 31. If those outputs are not available, the block uses
outputs from the bus controller with Device Number 30. If no outputs from a CPU are
available, outputs either Hold Last State or default (as configured).
In Duplex redundancy mode, a block compares outputs received from two CPUs and
sets any outputs for which there is disagreement to their Duplex Default state.

Compatibility
Hand-held Monitor: These blocks are fully compatible with a Hand–held Monitor
identified by catalog number IC660HHM501. They may also be used with HHM500.
HHM501 is required to change baud rate configuration, or to configure the block for
redundancy.
Bus Controller: The blocks may be used with any GE Fanuc Genius bus controller,
PCIM or QBIM.
I/O Blocks: These blocks are backward–compatible with previous block versions
(IC660CBS100, IC660BBS100, and IC660BBS101). They may be used as replacements for
earlier versions. However, their Terminal Assemblies are not backward–compatible, as
explained below.
Electronics Assembly: Electronics Assembly IC660EBS100H may be used to replace any
Electronics Assembly IC660ELS100 or IC660EBS100. Electronics Assembly
IC660EBS101C may be used to replace any version IC660ELS100, EBS100, or EBS101.
These Electronics Assemblies draw lower leakage current (7mA) than earlier versions
(which drew 13mA).
Terminal Assembly: The Terminal Assembly for these blocks (IC660TSS100E) is not
compatible with some earlier versions of their Electronics Assemblies (IC660EBS100A to G, or
IC660EBS101A or B). If Terminal Assembly IC660TSS100E will be used to replace an
earlier version of the Terminal Assembly, it will also be necessary to upgrade the
Electronics Assembly. This can be done by replacing the entire Electronics Assembly with
version IC660EBS100H or IC660EBS101C, or later. It can also be done by upgrading the
Electronics Assembly firmware using one of these update kits:

Circuit LEDs
Each circuit has its own LED. If the circuit is configured as an input, the LED indicates
the presence of threshold voltage at the input terminal. If the circuit is configured as an
output, the LED indicates the state commanded by the CPU.
Inputs and Outputs
An Isolated Block can be configured as an inputs–only, outputs–only, or combination
block. For a new block, the default is inputs–only. Regardless, the block always
broadcasts one byte of data each bus scan, and accepts one byte of data each bus scan.
If the block is configured as a combination block, circuits can be any mix of inputs and/or
outputs. The block will use 8 input references and 8 output references. The actual state
of each output will be returned to the CPU in the corresponding input reference
location. The CPU can monitor the feedback state to verify (after an appropriate delay)
that the output switching device has operated properly and that the load has the proper
voltage and current applied.
If the block is configured as an inputs–only block, all circuits must be regular inputs or
tristate inputs. The block will use 8 input references and NO output references.
If the block is configured as an outputs–only block, all circuits must be be outputs; no
feedback analysis will be performed. The block will use 8 output references and NO
input references.
Appendix B shows reference usage for a Series 90, Series Six, or Series Five PLC.

Diagnostics
115 VAC/125 VDC Isolated I/O blocks perform the following diagnostic checks. The
block reports all faults to the Hand–held Monitor, and takes appropriate corrective
action.
Individual circuits can be configured not to send diagnostic messages to the CPU if a
fault occurs. If the CPU requests diagnostic information from the block using Read
Diagnostic datagrams, the block returns current diagnostics for all circuits, including any
with CPU fault reporting disabled.
Loss of I/O Power Diagnostic
An Isolated I/O block operates as long as power is supplied to terminals 5 and 6. The
Loss of I/O Power diagnostic, which is unique to these blocks, indicates that one pair of
circuits is disconnected from field power.
If either circuit of the pair is an input, the block sets it to 0. If either circuit is an output,
the block turns it off. The block automatically sends a Loss of I/O Power diagnostic
message to the Hand–held Monitor. However, the message is not sent to the CPU
unless the block is Pulse Tested. The Unit OK LED does not blink. When I/O power is
restored, the circuits begin operating as soon as power reaches the minimum level.
If I/O power to the block itself is lost, the block cannot send diagnostic messages to the
CPU. The bus controller responds as it would to any other loss of block condition.
Overtemperature Diagnostic
Each circuit has a built–in thermal sensor. If the block’s internal temperature exceeds
100C, the block sends an OVERTEMPERATURE message and turns off the circuit to
protect its internal electronics. This diagnostic is always performed for both inputs and
outputs.
Short Circuit Diagnostic
Automatic output diagnostic. Output circuits are always protected by a short circuit
level sensor at the switching device. An output will turn off within several microseconds
after the instantaneous current exceeds 25 amps at turn–on, or 15 amps after 2 cycles
AC or 10mS for DC. The block will try to restart the load; if several attempts are
unsuccessful, the output circuit is forced off and the block sends a SHORT CIRCUIT
message. To restore normal operation, the cause of the current surge must be removed,
then the diagnostic must be cleared from the HHM or the CPU.

Failed Switch Diagnostic
BOTH Isolated block versions will report Failed Switch diagnostics for internal faults
independent of the output state, on both input and output–configured circuits.
Examples include loss of communications with the block’s internal microprocessor and
some internal power supply faults.
Block version IC660BBS100 will also report this diagnostic if an output’s switch state is
not the same as its commanded state. The block sends a Failed Switch message
identifying the failed circuit. The logic state of the circuit is set to OFF.
When an output fault occurs, the actual condition of the output switch is not known. If
the output switch has failed shorted (or closed). current flow is not interrupted when the
block forces the output state OFF. Action external to the block must be taken to remedy
the problem. The FAILED SWITCH message can alert personnel or cause program logic
to be activated, possibly shutting off power to the block, I/O section, or process.
Note
False Failed Switch diagnostics may be reported if an external device like
a manual switch is wired in parallel with an output. Even if fault
reporting for the circuit is disabled, it will be necessary to clear each
Failed Switch fault detected by the block. If the application requires
such a configuration, block version IC660BBS101 (no Failed Switch
diagnostic) should be used.
Open Wire Diagnostic
The block automatically performs this diagnostic on any circuit configured as a tristate
input. It will detect an electrical (not mechanical) malfunction. In addition to being
configured as a tristate input, the circuit must have a 5.1K ohm, 1/2 Watt or larger
non–inductive resistor installed across the actual dry contacts of the input device (such
as across the field device terminals).

With the switch closed (ON state), the circuit senses the low source impedance. With the
switch open (OFF state), the circuit senses the added resistance. If a wire is broken, cut
or removed, impedance becomes very high. The block will transmit 0 as the state of the
input, and send an OPEN WIRE message.
Devices such as photo–sensors, electronic high–speed counters, instrumentation, fiber
optic sensors, and similar electronic devices cannot be monitored for Open Wire
conditions. Such devices should be set up as standard, not tristate, inputs.
GE offers compatible input devices including a 5.1K ohm monitoring resistor with its line
of General Purpose Control sensor devices.

No Load Diagnostic
This optional diagnostic can be enabled or disabled for individual outputs.
For a new block, outputs are configured to report No–Load conditions. In this
configuration, energizing the output activates a no–load current level. If the load does
not continuously draw 50mA from the output circuit, the block sends a NO LOAD
message. Because this diagnostic monitors both current and voltage, a No Load
condition may cause an HHM monitoring an operating block to display 0 for the circuit
although there is voltage at the output and the circuit LED is on.
This diagnostic should be disabled for circuits on which very small loads (small relays,
transformers, or indicating lamps) will draw less than 50mA.
Overload Shutdown
Like No–load reporting, this diagnostic is also optional for individual outputs on the
block.
In addition to the protection provided by the block’s built–in Short Circuit detection,
Overload Shutdown provides further protection for output loads, field wiring, and
switching devices.
AC Output Overload
For an AC output, overload occurs if a load exceeds 2.8 amps (2.0 amps RMS)
continuously for 100mS. The block will turn the output off and send an OVERLOAD
message if Overload Shutdown is enabled.

Individual outputs can be configured not to shut off at this level or send the OVERLOAD
message. These restrictions apply:
1.
Maximum load current: 10 amps
2.
RMS Maximum duty cycle: limit duty cycle so that: (load current) x (% ON) is
less than 1.0 amp.
3.
Maximum ON time: 1 minute
4.
Maximum total current of all outputs ON at the same time is less than 15 amps.
For example, a maximum 10 amp load can be pulsed at a 10% duty cycle, or up to 1
minute ON and 9 minutes OFF. Higher repetition rates can be used if the duty cycle is
maintained. Exceeding the 10 amp limit may cause a short circuit fault to be generated.
The duty cycle derating to an average of 1 amp output current and the ON time limit are
necessary to avoid overheating due to the increased power dissipation in the block at
these high currents. Exceeding these limits may cause an overtemperature fault.

All field wiring connections to these blocks are
standard screw, clamp–type terminals which
can be operated with a flat or phillips–head
screwdriver. Each terminal accepts one AWG
#12 or two AWG #14 wires. The minimum
recommended wire size is AWG #22. The
terminals can accommodate spade or ring
terminals up to 0.27 inch (6.85 mm) in width
with a minimum opening for a #6 screw, and up
to 0.20 inch (5.1 mm) depth from the screw
center to the back barrier.

Power Connections
Up to five separate power sources can be
connected to the Terminal Assembly. Circuit
power and block power do not have to be the
same type. Block power may be DC while
circuit power is AC, or the reverse. Isolation is
rated to withstand 250 volts AC or DC
continuous between any group and ground, or
between any two groups.
For block power, connect a 115 volt AC or 125
VDC source to the top H terminal (5). Connect
neutral to the N terminal (6). All H terminals are
internally bussed, as are all N terminals.

Circuit Power
Each circuit pair can have its own power supply.
All circuits on an Isolated block must use either
AC or DC power.
If circuit power is AC, both circuits of a pair must
be wired to the same AC phase. However,
different pairs of circuits can be wired to
different AC phases.
Caution
If separate AC power is used
for any group of circuits on a
block, all power connections
within the group must be wired
to that same 120 VAC source.

Pulse Test
A new block is configured to enable Pulse Testing. Pulse Testing should remain enabled
if the block has loads that hold one state for long periods of time, unless any load(s) are
sensitive to pulses or interruptions of up to 8mS or 1mS (DC). It should be disabled if the
block’s loads will normally change state as the program executes. These outputs will
report faults during normal operation, and do not need to be pulsed.

Outputs can be pulse–tested from a Hand–held Monitor or by sending a Pulse
Test command from the application program.
Pulse Testing tests the continuity of each output circuit including the switch device,
power source, wiring, interposing devices (fuses, circuit breakers, terminals), and
output device. For Isolated I/O blocks, Pulse Testing also allows the CPU to easily
check for Loss Of I/O Power conditions.
It works whether or not there is minimum current to check for a No–Load
condition. Pulse testing does not activate mechanical devices such as motor
starters, relays, or solenoid valves.
Pulse Testing should momentarily cause outputs that are OFF to turn ON and
outputs that are ON to go OFF. Pulse testing may cause the following diagnostics:

If the output does not change state when pulsed.
Short Circuit:
If the load on an output that was OFF exceeds 30 amps when
pulsed ON.
No Load:
If the load on an output that was OFF draws less than 50mA
when pulsed ON.
Loss of I/O Power: Indicates that a pair of circuits is disconnected from field
power. This diagnostic is only reported to the CPU following
a Pulse Test, although it is available to the Hand–held
Monitor at all times.

Input Filter Time
The block continuously samples an input for the length of the configured filter time
period. If the input remains either on or off for the length of the Filter Time, the block
recognizes its state. For example:

The input filter helps reject spurious noise spikes and multiple inputs generated by the
bounce of mechanical devices. An input filter time of 10mS to 100mS can be selected for
the block. The default filter time is 10mS (no filter).
In controlled, noise–free environments, signals generated by clean, solid state
electronics may be unnecessarily slowed by a filter, delaying system response. In such
an environment, no additional filter time is needed.
In noisy environments, use a longer filter time to prevent noise from possibly causing
erratic or unsafe system operations.
For a block with tristate inputs, the minimum recommended Input Filter Time is 50mS.

Report Faults to CPU
Fault reports to the host can be disabled or enabled for any circuit.
If fault reporting is enabled for a circuit, the block sends a message to the host if any fault
occurs on that circuit.
If Fault reporting is disabled, the block does not send fault reports to the CPU for that
circuit.
Regardless of whether fault reporting is enabled, the block detects faults on the circuit
and takes appropriate action. The Unit OK LED blinks when a fault occurs, and a fault
report is sent to a Hand–held Monitor. The fault condition must be corrected for proper
operation of the block.
If the CPU requests diagnostic information from the block using a Read Diagnostics
datagram, the block returns current diagnostics for all circuits, including any with CPU
fault reporting disabled.

Hold Last State
Each output can be configured to either hold its last state or go to its powerup default
state if the block loses CPU communications for at least 3 bus scans.
For a new block, Hold Last State is disabled for each output. With Hold Last State
disabled, the block sets the output to its powerup default if CPU communications are
lost.
If Hold Last State is enabled, the block continues to hold the output in its current state
instead of setting it to the powerup default.
Outputs remain in their last state or default indefinitely or until one of the following
occurs:

Output Default State
An output goes to its powerup default state when the block is first powered up.
If Hold Last State is NOT enabled for an output, the block will also default the output if
CPU communications are lost. On a non–redundant system, this occurs approximately
250mS after the third bus scan passes with no CPU communications. If the block is on a
redundant bus downstream of a Bus Switching Module, more time is needed.

block, but circuit #1 cannot be physically used as an input. The first circuit will not be
under CPU control.
To change this configuration with a Hand–held Monitor, the block must first be
configured for BSM PRESENT. The BSM CONTROLLER menu will not appear if BSM
PRESENT is set to NO.

Output Default Time
When a Bus Switching Module is used, the Output Default Time must be long enough to
allow the BSM to switch without causing outputs to default. Therefore, when BSM
Present is selected (above), the block automatically changes its Output Default Time
from 3 bus scans to 2.5 seconds.
If Hold Last State was selected, outputs will remain in their last state while the BSM
switches, instead of defaulting, so there is no need to change this selection.
If Hold Last State was set to NO for any output on a block, and total bus scan time will
exceed 100mS, change this selection to 10 seconds.

CPU Redundancy
The block can be configured for No Controller Redundancy, Hot Standby or Duplex
redundancy. For new blocks, it is set for No Controller Redundancy. It must be changed
only if the block should be able to receive output data from two CPUs.
In Hot Standby mode, a block receives output data from both CPUs but uses the data
from only one of them to drive its outputs. The block prefers outputs sent by the bus
controller with Device Number 31. If those outputs are not available, the block uses
outputs from the bus controller with Device Number 30. If no outputs from a CPU are
available, outputs either Hold Last State or default (as configured).
In Duplex redundancy mode, a block compares outputs received from two CPUs and
sets any outputs for which there is disagreement to their Duplex Default state.

Optional Diagnostics
115VAC 16 Circuit Input blocks can be configured to perform Open Wire and Shorted
Wire detection on any circuit. These diagnostics are optional; for a new block, both are
disabled.
Open Wire Detection
If Open Wire Detection is enabled, the block monitors three voltage levels to sense
On/Off/OpenWire conditions. To use this diagnostic, the Open Wire detection feature
must be enabled for the circuit during configuration and resistance must be added across
the terminals of the input device during installation.
With the switch closed, the circuit senses a low source impedance. With the switch open,
it sees the resistor (RP in the illustration below). If a wire is broken, cut, or removed the
circuit sees a high impedance. The block then transmits 0 as the state of the input, and
sends an OPEN WIRE message.
The resistor used for RP must be compatible with the block’s thresholds. For dry contact
sensors, the default thresholds are not changed, and a 22K ohm resistor can be used for RP .
Shorted Wire Detection
This option establishes four voltage levels for On/Off/Short Hi/Short Low. A series
resistor (RS, below) near the input device allows the block to detect a shorted wire from a
dry contact sensor to the input terminal high or neutral. Result: Block sets input state to
1 for short high or 0 for short low and issues a Short Circuit diagnostic.
With the switch closed, the circuit senses the resistor. With the switch open, the circuit
sees a high impedance. If the input is shorted to the high or low side of the line, the
circuit sees a low impedance. Short low and high limits are 10% and 90% respectively.
RS must be compatible with the thresholds. For the default thresholds and a dry contact
input, use a 3.9K ohm resistor for RS.

Using Open Wire and Shorted Wire Diagnostics Together
Open Wire and Shorted Wire diagnostics can be selected for the same circuit. The circuit
must include both a series resistor (RS) and a parallel resistor (RP) to detect Open/Short
conditions from a dry contact sensor. For the default thresholds, use a 3.9K ohm resistor
for RS and a 22K ohm resistor for RP.

and/or Short Detect diagnostics to circuits with many types of input devices and sensors.
To obtain the diagnostic information, resistors must be located in the circuit as previously
described. The bias levels these resistors provide to the block must be compatible with
the thresholds selected for each bank of eight inputs.
Selecting Thresholds
If a solid state sensor is being used and Open Wire or Shorted Wire detection is required,
follow the procedure below.
1.
Wire the sensor to the input block and apply power.
2.
Measure VSOURCE.
3.
Measure VIN with the sensor in the Off state.
4.
Measure VIN with the sensor in the On state.
5.
Configure the On/Off and Open/Off thresholds so that VIN in the On state and VIN
in the Off state are within the proper limits.

Selecting Resistor Values
Accurate values for RS and RP cannot typically be directly calculated because more
information is required about the sensor than may be readily available. An estimate and
test method can be used to select proper resistance values for RS and RP. After RS and RP
values are estimated, appropriate ON/OFF and Open/Off thresholds should be
configured. If the thresholds cannot be selected so that V% with the sensor on and off
fall within proper ranges, then the external resistor values must be changed.
Bias voltage levels can be calculated when the external resistance between H and IN is
known:
V% =
(11.6 x RT) + 545.2
(58.6 x RT) + 545.2
In this equation, V% is the bias level (VIN/VSOURCE). V% with the sensor on and V%
with the sensor off must be calculated.
R is the total resistance in the external circuit in K ohms. If the resistors are already in
the circuit, actual V% can be found using a voltmeter.
RT = RS +
(RP x RINPUT)
RP + RINPUT
Rinput is the equivalent resistance of the sensor. This value of Rinput will be different in
the on state and off state of the sensor. Rinput will not typically be readily available from
the sensor manufacturer.
Ã
Calculating Resistor Values when V% is Known
If V% in the On state and V% in the Off state are known, resistor values can be found
with the following equation.
RT =
6-8
545.2 – (V% x 545.2)
(V%) x 58.6 – 11.6

all H terminals are internally bussed, as are the
N terminals. Extra power terminals are for
convenience. Depending on layout and current
loads, hot connections can be bussed together

Input Filter Time
The block continuously samples an input for the length of the configured filter time
period. If the input remains either on or off for the length of the Filter Time, the block
recognizes its state. For example:
Ã
Ã
ÃÃ
ÃÃ
An input filter helps reject spurious noise spikes and multiple inputs generated by the
OFF
bounce of mechanical devices. An input filter time of 10mS to 100mS can be selected for
20mS
the block. The default filter time is 10mS (no filter).
ÃÃ
Ã
Ã
ÃÃ
In controlled, noise–free environments, signals generated by clean, solid state
electronics may be unnecessarily slowed by a filter, delaying system response. In such

Thresholds
On this block, each group of eight circuits has two voltage thresholds:
an On/Off threshold and an optional Open/Off threshold.
On/Off Threshold: The On/Off threshold determines when inputs are
considered to be On or Off. The default On/Off threshold is 50% of the
incoming line voltage. This threshold is suitable for most applications.
If necessary, a different On/Off threshold can be configured for each
group of eight circuits. The selectable range is 25% to 85% of incoming
line voltage in 5% increments.
Open/Off Threshold: The optional Open/Off threshold is used if the
Open Wire diagnostic is enabled for any input in a group. Detection of
open wire conditions requires a resistor across the terminals of the input
device.
The default Open/Off threshold for each group of 8 inputs is 25% of the
incoming line voltage. If necessary, it can be reconfigured in 5%
increments from 25% to 85%.

Report Faults to CPU
Fault reports to the host can be disabled or enabled for any circuit.
If fault reporting is enabled, the block sends a message to the host if any fault occurs on
that circuit. If fault reporting is disabled, the block does not send fault reports to the
CPU for that circuit.
Regardless of whether fault reporting is enabled, the block detects faults on the circuit,
and takes appropriate action. The Unit OK LED blinks when a fault occurs, and a fault
report is sent to a Hand–held Monitor. The fault condition must be corrected for proper
operation of the block.
The application program can query the block for faults whether or not diagnostics
reporting is enabled, using individual Read Diagnostic messages.

Shorted Wire Detection can be independently enabled for each of the block’s 16 inputs.
For a new block, it is not enabled for any input. To detect shorted wire conditions, a
series resistor must be located near the input device, as explained on page 6-4.

Block Operation
All of a Relay Output block’s 16 relay–type outputs are either normally–open or
normally–closed (depending on the block version). Outputs are grouped into four
groups of four relays. Each group of four shares a common input terminal.

Relay States
A logical ’1’ received from the CPU causes a Relay block to energize the corresponding
relay coil; a ’0’ causes the coil to be deenergized. When the coil of a Normally–open
relay is energized, the relay contact closes. When the coil of a Normally–closed relay is
energized, the relay contact opens.

Field Wiring
Field devices are wired to terminals 5–32, which
accept AWG #22 through AWG #12 wires. Do
not overtorque the terminal screws.
Block Power
Relay Output blocks require a 115 VAC or 230
VAC power source. Voltage selection is made by
jumpers on the Terminal Assembly. When
shipped from the factory, the power selection
jumpers are set for 115 VAC operation. For 230
volt AC power, change the jumpers as shown
below. Care must be taken to ensure correct
jumper placement. Incorrect jumper placement
may result in damage to the block.

Wiring for Output Devices
Power for AC loads may come from the block AC
power supply or other AC source(s). Power for
DC loads may come from one or more DC
sources. Each group may use a separate AC or
DC source.
External Fuses and Snubbers
Relay blocks have no internal fuses. Following
normal practices, external fuses of 2 amps or less
can be installed in series to protect loads.
External snubbers are not necessary for correct
operation of the block. However, the use of
snubbers is recommended. Snubbers will
protect loads from switching transient pulses
and lengthen the contact life of the relays. Use a
diode connected in parallel with a DC inductive
load or an R–C network across the contacts.

Using a Relay Block as a BSM Controller
Both types of Relay Block (IC660BBR100 and
BBR101) can be used to control a Bus Switching
Module. There are two different BSM versions
available. It is important to match the BSM to
the type of voltage that will power the block’s
outputs. If this voltage will be 24/48 VDC, BSM
version IC660BSM021 is required. If the voltage
will be 115 VAC or 125 VDC, IC660BSM120 is
needed instead. Connect the BSM to the block
as shown below.
Block Powered by 230 VAC, Points Powered
by 24–48 VDC
If the block is powered by 230 VAC and the
points are powered by a 24–48 VDC source,
connect one wire of BSM version IC660BSM021
to point 1 and the other to DC– (24–48VDC).

Hold Last State
Each output can be independently configured to either hold its last state or default if the
block loses CPU communications for at least 3 bus scans.
For a new block, Hold Last State is disabled for each output. With Hold Last State
disabled, the block sets the output to its powerup default if CPU communications are
lost.
If Hold Last State is enabled, the block continues to hold the output in its current state
instead of setting it to the powerup default.
Outputs remain in their last state or default indefinitely or until one of the following
occurs:
H

Communications with the CPU are restored.
The Hand–held Monitor changes the output by forcing it.
Power is removed from the block.

Output Default State
An output goes to its powerup default state when the block is first powered up.
If Hold Last State was NOT enabled, the block will also default the output if CPU
communications are lost. On a non–redundant system, this occurs approximately
250mS after the third bus scan passes with no CPU communications. If the block is on a
redundant bus downstream of a Bus Switching Module, more time is needed.
(Additional default time for redundancy is explained on page 7-11.

Output Default Time
When a Bus Switching Module is used, the Output Default Time must be long enough to
allow the BSM to switch without causing outputs to default. Therefore, when BSM
Present is selected (above), the block automatically changes its Output Default Time
from 3 bus scans to 2.5 seconds.
If Hold Last State was selected, outputs will remain in their last state while the BSM
switches, instead of defaulting, so there is no need to change this selection.
If Hold Last State was set to NO for any output on a block, and total bus scan time will
exceed 100mS, change this selection to 10 seconds.

CPU Redundancy
The block can be configured for No Controller Redundancy, Hot Standby or Duplex
redundancy. For new blocks, it is set for No Controller Redundancy. It must be changed
only if the block should be able to receive output data from two CPUs.
In Hot Standby mode, a block receives output data from both CPUs but uses the data
from only one of them to drive its outputs. The block prefers outputs sent by the bus
interface module (Bus Controller or PCIM) with Device Number 31. If those outputs are
not available, the block will use outputs from the bus interface module with Device
Number 30. If no outputs from a CPU are available, outputs will either Hold Last State
or go to their defaults.
In Duplex redundancy mode, a block compares outputs received from two CPUs and
sets any outputs for which there is disagreement to their Duplex Default state.

5.6K ohms for 24/48 VDC blocks.
1.8K ohms for 24 VDC blocks
For 24/48 Volt DC Blocks, the internal resistor is 5.6K ohms. For 24 Volt DC blocks, the
internal resistor is 1.8K ohms.
Circuit LEDs
Each circuit has its own LED. If the circuit is configured as an input, the LED indicates
the presence of threshold voltage at the input terminal. If the circuit is configured as an
output, the LED indicates the actual state of the load.

Inputs and Outputs
The block can be configured as an inputs–only, outputs–only, or combination block.
Regardless, the block always broadcasts two bytes of data each bus scan, and accepts
two bytes of data each bus scan.
If the block is configured as an inputs–only block, all circuits must be regular inputs or
tristate inputs. The block will use 16 input references and NO output references.
If the block is configured as an outputs–only block, all circuits must be regular outputs;
no feedback analysis will be performed. The block will use 16 output references and NO
input references.
If the block is configured as a combination block circuits can be any mix of inputs and/or
outputs. The block will use 16 input references and 16 output references. The actual
state of each output circuit will be returned to the CPU in the corresponding input
references location. The CPU can monitor the feedback state to verify (after an
appropriate delay) that the output switching device has operated properly and that the
load has the proper voltage and current applied.
Appendix B shows reference usage for a Series 90, Series Six, or Series Five PLC.

Diagnostics
The block always performs its standard diagnostic checks, plus two optional output
diagnostics. The block reports all faults to the Hand–held Monitor, and takes
appropriate corrective action.
Individual circuits can be configured not to send diagnostic messages to the CPU if a
fault occurs. If the CPU requests diagnostic information from the block using Read
Diagnostics datagrams, the block returns current diagnostics for all circuits, including
any with CPU fault reporting disabled.
Overtemperature Diagnostic
Each circuit has a built–in thermal sensor. If the block’s internal temperature exceeds 100C,
the block sends an OVERTEMPERATURE message and turns off the circuit to protect its
internal electronics. This diagnostic is always performed for both inputs and outputs.
Short Circuit Diagnostic
Automatic output diagnostic. Output circuits are protected by a short circuit level sensor
at the switching device. If the instantaneous current on an output exceeds 10 amps at
turn–on, the block turns the output off within microseconds. The block will try to
restart the load; if two attempts are unsuccessful, the output circuit is forced off and the
block sends a SHORT CIRCUIT message. To restore normal operation to output the
cause of the current surge must be removed, then the diagnostic must be cleared from
the HHM or the CPU.
This diagnostic detects shorts across the load only. Also, systems with floating power
supplies do not detect shorts of I/O points to ground because there is no return current
path. Systems with power supplies grounded on the negative side detect grounded
output points either as Failed Switch (sink blocks) of Short Circuit (source blocks).
Partial (high resistance) shorts may not draw enough current during a Pulse Test to be
detected by the Pulse Test.
Failed Switch Diagnostic
The block automatically monitors all circuits for several types of faults, which may be
reported as Failed Switch diagnostics.
For an output, Failed Switch is reported if the circuit’s switch state is not the same as its
commanded state. The block sends a FAILED SWITCH message identifying the failed
circuit. The logic state of the circuit is set to OFF.
When an output fault occurs, the actual condition of the output switch is not known. If
the output switch has failed shorted (or closed), current flow is not interrupted when the
block forces the output state OFF. Action external to the block must be taken to remedy
the problem. The FAILED SWITCH message can alert personnel or cause program logic
to be activated, possibly shutting off power to the block, I/O section, or process.
Several additional switch faults independent of the output state are detected and
reported as Failed Switch faults on both input and output–configured circuits.
Examples include loss of communications with the block’s internal microprocessor and
some internal power supply faults.

Open Wire Diagnostic
The block automatically performs this diagnostic on any circuit configured as a tristate
input. It will detect an electrical (not mechanical) malfunction in a circuit. In addition to
being configured as a tristate input, the circuit must have a non–inductive resistor
placed as close as practical to the actual dry contacts (such as across the field device
terminals). For the 24/48 VDC blocks (IC660BBD020 and 021), a 5.1K ohm external
resistor should be used. For the 24 VDC blocks (IC660BBD022 and 023), a 1.6K ohm
external resistor should be used.

With the switch closed (ON state), the circuit senses the low source impedance. With the
switch open (OFF state), the circuit senses the added resistance. If a wire is broken, cut
or removed, impedance becomes very high. The block will transmit 0 as the state of the
input, and send an OPEN WIRE message.
Since faulty input circuit monitoring requires specific current flows, devices as
photo–sensors, electronic high–speed counters, instrumentation, fiber optic sensors,
and similar electronic devices cannot be monitored for Open Wire conditions. Such
devices should be set up as standard, not tristate, inputs.
GE offers compatible input devices including a 5.1K ohm monitoring resistor with its line
of General Purpose Control sensor devices.

No Load Diagnostic
The optional No Load diagnostic can be enabled or disabled for individual outputs.
For a new block, outputs are configured to report No–Load conditions. In this
configuration, energizing the output activates a no–load current level. If the load does
not continuously draw 50mA from the output circuit, the block sends a NO LOAD
message. Because this diagnostic monitors both current and voltage, a No Load
condition may cause an HHM monitoring the block to display 0 for the circuit although
there is voltage at the output and the circuit LED is on.
This diagnostic should be not be used for circuits on which very small loads (small relays,
transformers, or indicating lamps) will draw less than 50 mA.
Overload Diagnostic
Like No–Load detection, this diagnostic is optional for individual outputs on the block.
In addition to the protection provided by the block’s built–in Short Circuit detection,
Overload Shutdown provides further protection for output loads, field wiring, and
switching devices. If a load exceeds 2.8 amps DC continuously for 10mS, the block will
turn the output off and send an OVERLOAD message if Overload Shutdown is enabled.
For a load that requires more than 2 amps DC, the output can be configured not to shut
off at this level or send the OVERLOAD message. These restrictions apply:
1.
Maximum load current: 5 amps DC
2.
Maximum duty cycle: limit duty cycle so that: (load current) x (% ON) is less
than 1.0 amp.
3.
Maximum ON time: 1 minute
4.
Maximum total current of all outputs ON at the same time is less than 16 amps.
For example, a maximum 5 amp load can be pulsed at a 20% duty cycle, or up to 1
minute ON and 9 minutes OFF. Higher repetition rates can be used if the duty cycle is
maintained. The duty cycle derating to an average of 1 amp output current and the ON
time limit are needed to avoid overheating due to increased power dissipation in the
block at these high currents. Exceeding these limits may cause an overtemperature fault.

Pulse Test
Pulse Testing verifies the ability of a block’s outputs to change state. A new block is
configured to enable Pulse Testing. Pulse Testing should remain enabled if the block has
loads that hold one state for long periods of time, unless any load(s) are sensitive to pulses or
interruptions of up to 16mS. It should be disabled if the block’s loads will normally change
state as the program executes. These will report faults during normal operation, and do
not need to be pulsed.

Pulse Testing Outputs
Outputs can be pulse–tested from a Hand–held Monitor or by sending a
command from the CPU. Pulse Testing checks the continuity of each output circuit
including the switch device, power source, wiring, interposing devices (fuses,
circuit breakers, terminals), and output device. It works whether or not there is
minimum current to check for a No–Load condition. Pulse testing will not
activate mechanical devices such as motor starters, relays, or solenoid valves.
Pulse Testing should momentarily cause outputs that are OFF to turn ON and
outputs that are ON to go OFF. Progressively longer pulses are applied until the
desired circuit function is sensed. If the pulse width reaches the maximum of
16mS without detecting valid operation, one of these fault conditions is reported:
Failed Switch: If the output does not change state when pulsed.
Short Circuit:
If the load on an output that was OFF exceeds 10 amps when
pulsed ON.
No Load:
If the load on an output that was OFF draws less than 50 mA
when pulsed ON.
If the output was OFF, no current flow when the output is pulsed indicates an
open circuit or failed switch. Similarly, continued current flow when ON outputs
are pulsed OFF indicates a shorted switch (both malfunctions are reported to the
CPU).

Pulse Test Description
Pulse Testing switches a load to the opposite state then back again. This should occur so
quickly that there is no effect on the mechanics or contact outputs of the load device.
Specific Pulse Test operation depends on whether or not No Load detection is enabled.
A. If No Load detection is enabled, the block looks for presence or absence of load
current, using the normal No Load threshold. This verifies load continuity.
B. If No Load detection is NOT enabled, Pulse Testing tests only that the block output
is switching voltage.
Pulse Testing begins with narrow pulses. If the appropriate condition described above is
found on the first try, the test is complete. If the condition is not found, the test is
repeated with successively longer pulses (2.5mS increments) until successful. The
maximum Pulse Test time is 16 mS. If this time is reached and the result is still not
successful, a fault message is generated.
The normal pulse width seen by the load is typically shorter than the maximum 16mS.
A. With No Load detection enabled, the pulses requlred may be longer due to the rise
time of the load current and the load inductance.
Power devices such as contactors and actuators will typically encounter maximum
width pulses. Such devices draw moderate currents and are not affected by pulsing.
Low-power signal relays may have low current draw, high-inductance coils, and fast
operation. Such devices may have to be examined closely.
B. With No Load detection NOT enabled, a successful Pulse Test normally occurs in
4mS to 6mS. The time may be slightly longer if there are capacitive loads.
Suitable Loads for Pulse Testing
A resistive and/or inductive load is suitable for Pulse Testing if any of the following is true:
A. If No Load detection is enabled:
1.
The minimum pickup current of the load is less than the No Load threshold of
the block. The maximum threshold of the block is 50mA, but typlcal values are
20mA to 35mA.
When testing on–off–on operation, typical devices with rated currents of 75mA
and up are suitable.
When testing off–on–off operation, certain devices may require the addition of
a flyback diode directly across the load coil to increase the dropout time.
2.
The minimum pickup delay is greater than 16mS, and the dropout delay is
greater than 5mS. Devices that have slow or delayed operation may be
unsuitable because they will ride through the maximum width pulses.
3.
The rise time of current in the load, at normal voltage, allows the peak current to
reach the threshold in less time than the device delay, as well as less than the
16mS maximum pulse width. The load current must reach 50mA before the
contacts switch. If necessary, the load current can be increased by adding a
resistor load across the coil, and the device end of the wiring. This will permit
testing of wiring continuity, but it may not detect an open coil.
B. If No Load detection is NOT enabled, the minimum pickup or dropout delay is
greater than 5mS.

Input Filter Time
An input filter time of 5mS to 100mS can be selected for the block. The default filter time
is 20mS.
The block continuously samples an input for the length of the filter time period. If the
input remains either on or off for the length of the Filter Time, the block recognizes its
state. For example:

IF FILTER TIME = 20mS

An input filter helps reject spurious noise spikes and multiple inputs generated by the
bounce of mechanical devices. In controlled, noise–free environments, signals
generated by clean, solid state electronics may be unnecessarily slowed by a filter,
delaying system response. In such an environment, no additional filter time is needed.
In noisy environments, use a longer filter time to prevent noise from possibly causing
erratic or unsafe system operations.
For a block with tristate inputs, the minimum recommended Input Filter Time is 50mS.

all output references, or both. The default configuration for each circuit on the block is
input. On the screen shown below, the I/O type of each circuit can be changed.
If the Block I/O Type selection was Input, each circuit can be either an regular input (I) or
a tristate input (IT). Select Tristate Input for any input circuit that should report the
Open Wire diagnostic.
If the Block I/O Type is Output, each circuit must be an output (O).
If the Block I/O Type is Combination, each circuit can be configured as an input (I), an
output (O), or a tristate input (IT). Select Tristate Input for any input circuit that should
report the Open Wire diagnostic.

Report Faults to CPU
Fault reports to the host can be disabled or enabled for any circuit on a block.
If fault reporting is enabled for a circuit, the block will send a message to the host if any
fault occurs on that circuit.
If fault reporting is disabled, the block will not send fault reports to the CPU for that
circuit.
Regardless of whether fault reporting is enabled, the block will detect faults on the circuit,
and take appropriate actions. The Unit OK LED will blink when a fault occurs, and a
fault report is sent to a Hand–held Monitor. The fault condition must be corrected for
proper operation of the block.
If the CPU requests diagnostic information from the block using Read Diagnostics
datagrams, the block returns current diagnostics for all circuits, including any with CPU
fault reporting disabled.

Hold Last State
Each output can be independently configured to either hold its last state or to go to its
powerup default state if the block loses CPU communications for at least 3 bus scans.
For a new block, Hold Last State is disabled for each output. With Hold Last State
disabled, the block sets the output to its powerup default if CPU communications are
lost.
If Hold Last State is enabled, the block continues to hold the output in its current state
instead of setting it to the powerup default.
Outputs remain in their last state or default indefinitely or until one of the following
occurs:

An output goes to its powerup default state when the block is first powered up.
If Hold Last State was NOT enabled, the block will also default the output if CPU
communications are lost. On a non–redundant system, this occurs approximately
250mS after the third bus scan passes with no CPU communications. If the block is on a

Output Default Time
When a Bus Switching Module is used, the Output Default Time must be long enough to
allow the BSM to switch without causing outputs to default. Therefore, when BSM
Present is selected (above), the block automatically changes its Output Default Time
from 3 bus scans to 2.5 seconds.
If Hold Last State was selected, outputs will remain in their last state while the BSM
Switches, instead of defaulting, so there is no need to change this selection.
If Hold Last State was set to NO for any output on a block, and total bus scan time will
exceed 100mS, change this selection to 10 seconds.

CPU Redundancy
The block can be configured for No Controller redundancy, Hot Standby or Duplex
redundancy, or Genius Modular Redundancy (GMR). For new blocks, No Controller
Redundancy is selected.
In Hot Standby mode, a block receives output data from both CPUs but uses the data
from only one of them to drive its outputs. The block prefers outputs sent by the bus
interface module (Bus Controller or PCIM) with Device Number 31. If those outputs are
not available, the block will use outputs from the bus interface module with Device
Number 30. If no outputs from a CPU are available, outputs will either Hold Last State
or go to their defaults.
In Duplex redundancy mode, the block compares outputs received from two CPUs and
sets any outputs for which there is disagreement to their Duplex Default state.
Select GMR mode only for blocks that will be part of a Genius Modular Redundancy
system as described in the GMR User’s Manual. Do not try to configure a block for
GMR mode without referring to the detailed configuration instructions in that book.

Inputs and Outputs
The block can be configured as an inputs–only, outputs–only, or combination block.
Regardless, the block always sends 4 bytes of data each bus scan, and accepts 4 bytes of
data each bus scan.
If the block is configured as an inputs–only block, all circuits must be inputs. The block
will use 32 input references and NO output references.
If the block is configured as an outputs–only block, all circuits must be regular outputs;
no feedback analysis can be performed. The block will use 32 output references and NO
input references.
If the block is configured as a combination block, it can have any mix of input and/or
output circuits. The block will use 32 input references and 32 output references. The
actual state of each output circuit will be returned to the CPU in the corresponding input
reference location. The CPU can monitor the feedback state to verify (after an
appropriate delay) that the output switching device has operated properly and that the
load has the proper voltage and current applied.
Appendix B shows reference usage for a Series 90, Series Six, or Series Five PLC.

Diagnostics
The block monitors outputs for overload conditions, and checks the actual state of each
output switch against its commanded state. The block reports all faults to the
Hand–held Monitor. Individual circuits can be configured not to report faults to the
CPU.
Short Circuit diagnostic
If the output is commanded to go on and current exceeds 5 amps for 1mS, the block
automatically turns the circuit off and sends a FAILED SWITCH message. The circuit
must be reset by cycling power to the block, or by sending a Clear Faults command from
the Hand–held Monitor or the CPU.
Surge Current Protection
These blocks handle steady–state loads of 0.5 amps during normal operation. They will
safely switch loads between 0.5 amps and 4 amps, as shown below. To protect the block,
surge currents should not exceed these levels. For example, a surge current of 4 amps
should not be more than 10mS in duration. A surge current of 1 amp should not exceed
30mS.

Field Wiring
Field devices are wired to terminals 5–32, which
accept two#14 solid wires, or two #16 stranded
wires. Do not overtorque the terminal screws.
For block power, connect a DC source to the
DC+ terminals (6–9) and the return to the DC–
terminals (42–46). Depending on layout and
current loads, positive and negative connections
can be bussed and made by single wires to the
block or power source.
Sink Block
Any circuit can be an input or output. Connect
one terminal of a field device to DC power and the
other to the block (terminals 10–41). All I/O
devices must return to the same power circuit.
Connect outputs to the positive side of the power
supply and inputs to the negative side.

Pulse Test
Pulse Testing verifies the ability of a block’s outputs to change state. A new block is
configured to enable Pulse Testing. Pulse Testing should remain enabled if the block has
loads that hold one state for long periods of time, unless any load(s) are sensitive to pulses or
interruptions. It should be disabled if the block’s loads will normally change state as the
program executes. These will report faults during normal operation, and do not need to
be pulsed.

Pulse Testing Outputs
If Pulse Testing is enabled, the block will pulse its outputs on command from either
a Hand–held Monitor or the CPU. Pulse Testing checks the continuity of an output
circuit including the switch device, power source, wiring, interposing devices
(fuses, circuit breakers, terminals), and output device. It can be commanded from
the Hand–held Monitor or the CPU. It works whether or not there is minimum
current to check for a No–Load condition. Pulse Testing will not activate
mechanical devices such as motor starters, relays, or solenoid valves.
Pulse Testing will momentarily cause outputs that are OFF to turn ON for 1mS and
outputs that are ON to go OFF for 1mS. Failure of the Pulse Test causes the
following message:
Failed Switch: If the output does not change state when pulsed for up to 1mS, or
if current exceeds 5 amps for 1mS.

Input Filter Time
A filter time can be selected for inputs on the block. (The same filter will apply to all
inputs). The default filter time is 20mS.
The block continously samples an input for the length of the filter time period. If the
input remains either on or off for the length of the Filter Time, the block recognizes its
state. For example:
a42504
OFF
ON
STATE
20mS
SIGNAL
Sampled Inputs
ON for 5mS
not recognized
IF FILTER TIME = 20mS
Sampled Inputs Sampled Inputs
ON for 30mS
OFF for 3mS
recognized by block not recognized
An input filter helps reject spurious noise spikes and multiple inputs generated by the
bounce of mechanical devices. In controlled, noise–free environments, signals
generated by clean, solid state electronics may be unnecessarily slowed by a filter,
delaying system response. In such an environment, no additional filter time is needed.
In noisy environments, select a longer filter time to prevent noise from possibly causing
erratic or unsafe system operations. The filter time can be 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 10, 20, 30, 40, 50,
60, 70, 80, 90, or 100mS.

I/O Circuit Type
An earlier configuration step selected the Block I/O type (on the Program Block ID
screen). That step determined whether the block would be assigned all input references,
all output references, or both. On the screen shown below, the I/O type of each circuit
can be specified.
The default Block I/O Type and I/O Circuit Type is Input. When the Block I/O Type is
Input, all circuits must be inputs.
If the Block I/O Type is Output, each circuit must be an output (O).
If the Block I/O Type is Combination, each circuit can be configured as an input (I) or an
output (O).

Report Faults to CPU
Fault reports to the host can be disabled or enabled for any circuit on a block.
If fault reporting is enabled for a circuit, the block will send a message to the host if any
fault occurs on that circuit.
If Fault reporting is disabled, the block will not send fault reports to the CPU for that
circuit.
Regardless of whether fault reporting is enabled, the block will detect faults on the circuit,
and take appropriate actions. The Unit OK LED will blink when a fault occurs, and a
fault report is sent to a Hand–held Monitor. The fault condition must be corrected for
proper operation of the block.
If the CPU requests diagnostic information from the block using Read Diagnostics
datagrams, the block returns current diagnostics for all circuits, including any with CPU
fault reporting disabled.

Hold Last State
Each output can be independently configured to either hold its last state or to go to its
powerup default state if the block loses CPU communications for at least 3 bus scans.
For a new block, Hold Last State is disabled for each output. With Hold Last State
disabled, the block sets the output to its powerup default if CPU communications are
lost.
If Hold Last State is enabled, the block continues to hold the output in its current state
instead of setting it to the powerup default.
Outputs remain in their last state or default indefinitely or until one of the following
occurs:

Output Default State
An output goes to its powerup default state when the block is first powered up.
If Hold Last State was NOT enabled, the block will also default the output if CPU
communications are lost. On a non–redundant system, this occurs approximately
250mS after the third bus scan passes with no CPU communications. If the block is on a
redundant bus downstream of a Bus Switching Module, more time is needed.
(Additional default time for redundancy is explained on page 9-17).

BSM Controller
A BSM Controller is a block to which a Bus Switching Module is directly attached, which
controls the BSM’s switching action. Selecting a block to be a BSM Controller block has
no effect on the block’s I/O type – the block can still be configured as an inputs–only
block, but circuit #1 cannot be physically used as an input. The first circuit will not be
under CPU control.
To change this configuration with a Hand–held Monitor, the block must first be
configured for BSM PRESENT. The BSM CONTROLLER menu will not appear if BSM
PRESENT is set to NO.

Output Default Time
When a Bus Switching Module is used, the Output Default Time must be long enough to
allow the BSM to switch without causing outputs to default. Therefore, when BSM
Present is selected (above), the block automatically changes its Output Default Time
from 3 bus scans to 2.5 seconds.
If Hold Last State was selected, outputs will remain in their last state, instead of
defaulting, so there is no need to change this selection.
If Hold Last State was set to NO for any output on a block, and total bus scan time will
exceed 100mS, change this selection to 10 seconds.

CPU Redundancy
The block can be configured for No Controller redundancy, Hot Standby or Duplex
redundancy, or Genius Modular Redundancy (GMR). For new blocks, No Controller
Redundancy is selected.
In Hot Standby mode, a block receives output data from two CPUs but uses the data
from only one to drive its outputs. The block prefers outputs sent by the bus interface
module (Bus Controller or PCIM) with Device Number 31. If those outputs are not
available, the block will use outputs from the bus interface module with Device Number
30. If no outputs from either are available, the block’s outputs will either Hold Last State
or go to their defaults.
In Duplex redundancy mode, a block compares outputs received from two CPUs and
sets any outputs for which there is disagreement to their Duplex Default state (explained
next).
Select GMR mode only for blocks that will be part of a Genius Modular Redundancy
system as described in the GMR User’s Manual. Do not try to configure a block for
GMR mode without referring to the detailed configuration instructions in that book.

Each circuit on a Voltage/Current Analog I/O Block can
accept or provide signals in one of five analog ranges:
0 to 10 volts DC, –10 volts DC to +10 volts DC, –5
volts DC to +5 volts DC, 0 to 5 volts DC, or 4 to 20 mA
(1 to 5 volts DC). External resistance can be used to
interface these blocks to current–loop devices with
other signal ranges.
The block converts the input and output signal levels
to/from digital count values and translates them into
engineering units values that relate to the application.
The block’s internal power supply drives current mode
output loads up to 300 ohms each. For loads up to 2K
ohms, an external 24 or 48 VDC power supply can be
used. For current-loop applications, Current-source
Analog blocks may be more suitable. See chapters 11
through 13.
Individual inputs can be set up to operate in Alarm
Input Mode. In this mode, the input’s analog value is
not sent to the HHM or the CPU. Instead, the block
will report values that indicate whether the input
signal exceeds either of its alarm levels.

Block Operation
The first four circuits on a Voltage/Current Analog I/O block are inputs. One 12–bit
analog to digital (A/D) converter is time–shared between the input circuits. The block
converts each input signal voltage or current to a digital count value. It then scales the
count value to an integer that represents the engineering units for that input.

Accuracy is within " 0.5% maximum, " .2% typical over the entire span of the reading at
25C. This means accuracy is within 50mV on the 10 volt range, 5mV on the 5 volt
range, and 100µA on the 4 to 20 mA range. The blocks automatically calibrate all internal
A/D and D/A circuits periodically during normal operation.

Circuit Scaling
The block automatically scales each input or output to/from a value in engineering units.
This whole integer number can represent any type or increment of units meaningful to
the application. For example, if the current value of a temperature input was 116.37F, it
might be reported as:
116
1163
11637
degrees, or
tenths of degrees, or
hundredths of degrees
All circuits can be scaled independently, as explained later in this chapter.
Example of Scaling an Analog Circuit
A circuit is configured in the 0 to 10 volts DC range. It measures a velocity input.
Electronic sensors and mechanical linkage external to the block have determined that an
input level of +1.5 volts DC is equal to –20 feet/second (–6 meters/second), and that +9
volts DC is equal to +180 feet/second (+50 meters/second).
Plotting these values on a graph shows that a signal of 5 volts DC corresponds to a
speed of 73.3 feet/second.

Because engineering units values are whole integers, this would be rounded to +00073.
For better resolution, the circuit is reconfigured to units of hundredths of feet/second.
New scaling values are configured which are 100 times the original values. The low
engineering units value of –20 is reconfigured as –2000. The high engineering units
value +180 is changed to +18000. Now, the 5 volt DC signal represents +07333
(hundredths of feet/second).

Diagnostics
If a fault occurs, the block reports it to the Hand–held Monitor and takes appropriate
corrective action.
Individual circuits can be configured not to send diagnostic messages to the CPU if a
fault occurs. If the CPU requests diagnostic information from the block using Read
Diagnostics datagrams, the block returns current diagnostics for all circuits, including
any with CPU fault reporting disabled.
Open Wire Diagnostic
The OPEN WIRE diagnostic detects an open wire at an input terminal. The diagnostic is
only available for circuits set to operate from 4 to 20 mA. If the circuit current drops
below 2 mA, the block sends an OPEN WIRE message. Nothing is done to alter the
actual input data.
Input Low Alarm and High Alarm Diagnostics
Individual low alarm thresholds and high alarm thresholds can be configured for each
input.
If an input is over its high alarm limit, the block sends a HIGH ALARM message. If an
input is under its low Alarm Threshold, the block sends a LOW ALARM message. The
alarm message identifies the input circuit which is in alarm. Only one message is sent
upon reaching the limit. Since the input value is supplied as part of the normal input
status update, the CPU can determine how much over the limit it is.
Input Underrange and Overrange Diagnostics
The block sends an UNDERRANGE or OVERRANGE message if:
A. The input voltage or current is outside the circuit’s configured range. Therefore,
when the block converts the signal level to digital counts, the result is lower than
–4095 or higher than +4095. To prevent this, the input signal should be clamped
appropriately.
B. The channel scaling is incorrect. When the block converts the digital counts value to
engineering units, the result is lower than –32,767 or higher than +32,767. This
should be corrected by adjusting channel scaling.
Output Underrange and Overrange Diagnostics
The block sends an UNDERRANGE or OVERRANGE message if conversion of the
engineering units output it receives from the CPU results in a counts value that
corresponds to a signal outside the circuit’s configured range. For example, if the output
is configured for 0 to +5V and the conversion from engineering units to counts results in
a value of –2V at the output, the block sends an UNDERRANGE diagnostic.
If an underrange or overrange condition occurs, the block clamps the output to the
selected range limit to protect external hardware.

Field Wiring
Field devices are wired to terminals 5–32, which
accept AWG #22 through AWG #14 wires. Do not
overtorque the terminal screws.
Power Source Wiring
For block power, connect the power source to
terminals 6 and 7. For a 24/48 VDC block, connect
the source to the DC+ terminal and the return to the
DC– terminal. For a 115 VAC block, connect the
source to the H terminal and neutral to N.
For the 115 VAC block (IC660BBA100) only, if Class 1
Division 2 conditions must be met for Factory
Mutual, install a 250 volt 1/8 amp slow–blow fuse in
series with the Hot AC power connector:

Wiring for I/O Devices
The ground (GND) terminal (5) is for block safety. It
is connected internally to the block chassis, and to
terminals 12, 20, and 28, which are marked GND.
Each pair of signals has one ground terminal and
one common terminal, for shield termination if
desired. The three common terminals are connected
together internally to the source.
For a voltage input device, connect the device in
series between V+ and the terminal marked IN for
that input. Connect V– to RTN.
For a voltage output device, connect the load to the
terminals marked VOUT and COM for that output.
If current mode (4–20mA) is used for an input
circuit without an external resistor, connect a jumper
from the terminal marked JMP to the terminal
marked RTN for that circuit.
If an input current device operates outside the
4–20mA range, connect a resistor across the voltage
inputs. For example, to measure 10mA to 50mA current loop signals, install a 100 ohm resistor.
GEK–90486D–2
If current mode is used for an output circuit,
use the terminals marked I+ and I–. For
outputs set up in current mode, the block’s
internal power supply can be used to drive loads
up to 300 ohms per output. For loads up to 2K
ohms, use an external power supply. Connect
the positive lead of the external supply to one
side of the load, and the negative lead of the
external supply to block common on terminal
29. If the external supply is between 24V and
50V, you can use terminal 25 or 30 as a tie point
for the positive connection. This point will be
disconnected from the external supply by a
reverse biased diode.

Report Faults to CPU
Fault reports to the host can be disabled or enabled for any circuit.
If fault reporting is enabled, the block sends a message to the host if any fault occurs on
that circuit. If fault reporting is disabled, the block does not send fault reports to the
CPU for that circuit.
Regardless of whether fault reporting is enabled, the block will detect faults on the circuit,
and take appropriate actions. The Unit OK LED will blink when a fault occurs, and a
fault report is sent to a Hand–held Monitor. The fault condition must be corrected for
proper operation of the block.
If the CPU requests diagnostic information from the block using Read Diagnostics
datagrams, the block returns current diagnostics for all circuits, including any with CPU
fault reporting disabled.

Range Select
For each circuit, select the voltage or current range that corresponds to the signal level of
the input or output device:
0 to 10 volts DC
–10 volts DC to +10 volts DC
–5 volts DC to +5 volts DC
0 to 5 volts DC
4 to 20 mA/1 to 5 volts DC
This matches an input voltage range to the block’s internal range of 4095 digital counts.
It also sets the limits at which outputs are clamped by the software.
For all current–loop input or output devices, select the 4mA to 20 mA range. Current
loop scaling can be changed by installing an external resistor across the voltage inputs.
For example, a 100 ohm resistor would be connected across the inputs to measure 10mA
to 50mA current loop signals.
The 4mA to 20 mA range can also be selected to improve noise immunity on long input
leads. However, it is better to use longer communication cables and voltage sensing
where practical than to use long input leads.
Note
Range Selection is a setup parameter; it is not ordinarily changed while
the block is operational. If the block sends an UNDERRANGE or
OVERRANGE message, adjust the circuit scaling, not the selected range.
See page 10-12 for information about circuit scaling.

Circuit Scaling
Each circuit can be configured for a different type or increment of engineering units
values. The default configuration for each circuit is to operate in the range of " 10VDC
and to report engineering units of millivolts. If those selections are appropriate, the
default configuration can be used.
If units of millivolts are not appropriate, or a circuit has been reconfigured to another
voltage/current range, it should be rescaled. All that is needed to scale a circuit is two
pairs of associated digital count values and engineering units values. These can be taken
from the following table or from actual process measurements, or they can be estimates
of expected values.
Scaling Values for 1mV or 1µA Engineering Units
If a circuit should use 1mV or 1µA engineering units, configure its scaling by entering
values from the table below. (It is not necessary to re–enter the default values).

Measuring Scaling Values
If the circuit will not use mV/µA units, the most accurate scaling values can be found by
taking actual measurements of the process. The process must be set to two distinctly
different conditions, so two engineering units measurements can be taken. If the block

with each engineering units measurement. If the block is not online to the process, the

Scaling Guidelines
1.
Pick two different digital count values from –4095 to +4095, depending upon the
range of the circuit. These count values must differ by at least 2.
2.
Pick two different engineering units values from –32767 to +32767. These values
must also differ by at least 2.
3.
Check the values by drawing a graph with engineering units as the horizontal axis
and counts as the vertical axis. Locate both pairs of values on the graph, and draw a
connecting line between them. The line must cross the engineering units axis
between –32767 and +32767. That is, zero (0) counts must correspond to a number
of engineering units in this range. The slope of the resulting line should be between
1/200 and 200 (for a positive slope) or between –1/200 and –200 (for a negative
slope). Values outside this range will be accepted by the block (provided other
requirements are met), but may not yield satisfactory accuracy during internal
calculations.
4.
The values selected should provide the greatest range of engineering units values
without exceeding " 32767.
Entering Scaling Values
If you are NOT measuring the process while scaling the circuit, have the two pairs of
scaling values ready. If you ARE measuring the process to scale the circuit, set the
process to one of the two conditions being measured.

an environment, a longer filter time is not needed.
Selections are: none, 8, 16, 32, 64, 128, 256, 512, or 1024mS. For a new block, this is set to

Alarm Input Mode
Ordinarily, the block sends the current value of each input circuit, in engineering units,
to the CPU. This is referred to as the analog block’s normal mode of operation. For a
new block, all inputs are set to operate in Normal Mode.
For some applications, it may be preferred to send an alarm status indication instead of
the actual analog input value for one or more circuits. This is referred to as Alarm Input
mode. In this mode, the analog value normally sent to the CPU is replaced by the value
0, 1, or 2 (decimal):
0 if the signal lies between the block’s two alarm thresholds.
1 if the signal lies at or below the low alarm threshold.
2 if the signal lies at or above the high alarm threshold.

Alarm Thresholds
Each input circuit can have two unique Alarm Thresholds, one for a low engineering
units value and one for a high value. Maximum values are " 32,767. The high
threshold should be greater than the low threshold. Threshold limits are based on circuit
scaling. If scaling is changed, review and readjust the Alarm Thresholds if necessary.
Alarm Thresholds may be used for either normal–mode or alarm–mode inputs (see
above). In normal mode, if an input reaches one of the thresholds, the block sends the
actual value and a LOW ALARM or HIGH ALARM message. The message identifies the
circuit in alarm. Only one message is sent upon reaching the limit. Alarms do not stop
the process or change the value of the input.
Alarm Thresholds can be set anywhere over the dynamic range of the signal. Typically,
they are set at levels beyond which the input should not operate or levels beyond which
alternate processing is required. They can also be set beyond the dynamic range of the
signal, ensuring that they will never be activated.
Example 1:
A circuit is expected to report engineering unit values of –20 ft/sec (–6 m/sec) to
+180 ft/sec (+50 m/sec). The high alarm is set at 150 ft/sec (+40 m/sec) and the low
alarm at –25 ft/sec (–7.5m/sec).
If an input reached its high alarm, a new threshold could be set. This could generate
a high–high alarm or an alarm–cleared threshold.
Example 2:
An Alarm Threshold is set at 150 ft/sec. Upon receiving an alarm message, the CPU
changes the Alarm Threshold to 165 ft/sec by using a Write Configuration command
and sends the appropriate Clear Circuit Fault command. No alarm message is sent
upon changing the threshold unless the speed is greater than 165 ft/sec. If the speed
is only 157 ft/sec but increasing, a second message would be sent at 165 ft/sec. Since
these two diagnostic messages are the same, it would be necessary for the program
to keep track of the level of the Alarm Thresholds and recognize this as a higher
alarm than that received initially. At the same time, it could move the low alarm to
140 ft/sec and use this level to detect the end of the high alarm conditions.

Hold Last State
Each output can be configured to either hold its last value or go to its powerup default
value if the block loses CPU communications for at least 3 bus scans.
For a new block, Hold Last State is disabled for both outputs. With Hold Last State
disabled, the block sets the output to its powerup default if CPU communications are
lost.
If Hold Last State is enabled, the block continues to hold the output at its current value
instead of setting it to the powerup default.
Outputs remain in their last value or default indefinitely or until one of the following
occurs:

Output Default Value
An output goes to its powerup default value when the block is first powered up. For a
new block, the output default value for each output is 0.
If Hold Last State is NOT enabled, the block will also default the output if CPU
communications are lost. On a non–redundant system, this occurs approximately
250mS after the third bus scan passes with no CPU communications. If the block is on a
redundant bus downstream of a Bus Switching Module, more time is needed. .

Output Default Time
When a Bus Switching Module is used, the Output Default Time must be long enough to
allow the BSM to switch without causing outputs to default. Therefore, when BSM
Present is selected (above), the block automatically changes its Output Default Time
from 3 bus scans to 2.5 seconds.
If Hold Last State was selected, outputs will remain in their last value while the BSM
switches, instead of defaulting, so there is no need to change this selection.
If Hold Last State was set to NO for any output on a block, and total bus scan time will

CPU Redundancy
The block can be configured for No Controller redundancy or Hot Standby redundancy.
For new blocks, it is set for No Controller Redundancy. It must be changed only if the
block should be able to receive output data from two CPUs.
In Hot Standby mode, a block receives output data from both CPUs but uses the data
from only one of them to drive its outputs. The block prefers outputs sent by the bus

Block Operation
These blocks have four independent inputs and two independent outputs.
Input Circuits
Input channels use voltage to frequency converters and counters to translate analog
currents to a digital value. This value is converted by the block to engineering units
before it is sent to the CPU.

P.S
Each input has a 24 volt current loop power supply, capable of providing 25mA of
current. Each input is isolated from all other circuits within the block. Input accuracy is
0.1%. Input conversion time can be selected to provide the appropriate combination of
noise rejection and input resolution. Conversion times are programmable from 16mS to
400mS. Resolution increases as the conversion time is lengthened. Input resolution is
1µA for 200mS conversion time.
Input Data Format
Each bus scan, a Current–source Analog I/O Block broadcasts 8 bytes of input data.
Each input consists of 2 bytes of scaled engineering units data. Appendix B shows
reference usage for a Series 90, Series Six, or Series Five PLC.

Output Circuits
The two independent output circuits are electrically common to each other and the Bus
Switching Module outputs, but isolated from all other circuits on the block. Power for
the outputs’ current loops is provided by the block.
Output channels use a dual 12–bit digital to analog converter, and can independently
control currents from 0mA to 24mA. Output accuracy is 0.15% at 25 C. Output
resolution is 6µA.

Diagnostics
Current–source Analog I/O Blocks perform the diagnostics described below. If a fault
occurs, the block will report it to the Hand–held Monitor, and take appropriate
corrective action.
Individual circuits can be configured not to send a diagnostic message to the CPU if a
fault occurs. If the CPU requests diagnostic information from the block using a Read
Diagnostic datagram, the block returns current diagnostics for all circuits, including any
with CPU fault reporting disabled.
Input Open Wire Diagnostic
The block monitors input current levels. If input current is below 2mA, the block sends
an Open Wire message.
Alarm Thresholds
An individual low alarm and high alarm threshold can be configured for each input. If
an input reaches one of its configured limits, the block sends a High Alarm or Low Alarm
message. Since the circuit’s current value is also available, it is possible to determine
how much beyond the limit the input is. Only one diagnostic message is sent upon
reaching the limit.
Input Underrange and Overrange Diagnostics
The block sends an UNDERRANGE message if current is negative, or 0mA. It sends an
OVERRANGE message if the input signal exceeds 25mA.
Output Underrange and Overrange Diagnostics
The block sends an UNDERRANGE message if conversion of the engineering units
output it receives from the CPU results in a commanded output less than 0mA.
It sends an OVERRANGE message if conversion of the engineering units output it
receives from the CPU results in an output signal level that exceeds 24mA. The block
clamps the output to the selected range limit to protect external hardware.
Output Feedback Error
This diagnostic is used to detect wiring errors or other hardware faults on output
circuits. After waiting for a configurable period of time, the block compares each
output’s current to its last commanded output value. If the difference is greater than
250µA, the block reports a Feedback Error. The block continues sending new values
from the CPU to the output.
Nuisance diagnostics may be reported if the Output Feedback Time selected for the
circuit is too brief. If this happens, increase the feedback time or disable output feedback
testing.

If both of the block’s output loads are grounded,
and the loads are widely separated by distance,
an external resistor should be installed in each
load’s return line to the block. This will prevent
possible damage to the block caused by the
significant voltage differences that may occur
between the two ground points. 10–ohm
resistors are suggested.

Report Faults to CPU
Fault reports to the host can be disabled or enabled for any circuit.
If fault reporting is enabled, the block sends a message to the host if any fault occurs.
If Fault reporting is disabled, the block does not send fault reports to the CPU for that
circuit.
Regardless of whether fault reporting is enabled, the block detects faults on the circuit,
and takes appropriate action. If a fault occurs, the block’s Unit OK LED blinks and a
fault report is sent to a Hand–held Monitor. The fault condition must be corrected for
proper operation of the block.
If the CPU requests diagnostic information from the block using Read Diagnostics
datagrams, the block returns current diagnostics for all circuits, including any with CPU
fault reporting disabled.

Circuit Scaling
All circuits on the block can be scaled independently. To scale a circuit, two pairs of
values are entered: two engineering units values and their associated signal levels.
Based on these two pairs of values, the block will be able to calculate engineering units
for all other input or output levels.
The block uses the scaling values to convert the input and output signal levels (0 to
" 25000µA for inputs, 0 to " 24000 µA for outputs) into engineering units values. Each
engineering units value is an integer to " 32767. The converted number is still a
numerical value, and will appear as such on the Hand–held Monitor or at the CPU with
its programming device. The applicable units of measure should be recorded separately
on a meter or display.
When scaling a circuit, it is important to select units that will produce adequate
resolution in the final integer value. Engineering units scaling values can be increased
by a convenient multiple, such as 10 or 100, as long as the resulting engineering units
values calculated by the block will not exceed the limit of " 32,767.
On a new block, circuit scaling is set to 1µA per engineering unit. If this is appropriate, it
will not need to be changed. Or each input can be independently scaled. The scaling
values selected should provide the maximum range for the application’s engineering
units.
Scaling can also be used to compensate for field device inaccuracies.
Entering Scaling Values
The most accurate scaling comes from actual measurements. The process must be set to
two distinctly different conditions, so two engineering units measurements can be taken.
If the block is online to the process, it automatically provides the signal level for each
engineering units measurement. If the block is not online to the process, the signal level
associated with each engineering units value must also be measured external to the
block.
If the process cannot be measured, you can estimate scaling values. Estimated values
will not be as accurate as measured values.
If you are NOT measuring the process while scaling the circuit, have the two pairs of
scaling values ready. If you ARE measuring the process to scale the circuit, set the
process to one of the two conditions being measured.

Input Conversion Time
Input conversion time determines the length of time required to make one analog to
digital conversion on each input channel. The table below shows the available
conversion times and their associated resolution and line rejection capabilities. For a
new block, 400mS is the default. This conversion time, which provides the maximum
resolution and noise rejection, is suitable for most applications.
Change it only if faster update times are required. The following table shows the
available conversion times, and the resolution and noise rejection for each.

Alarm Thresholds
Each input circuit can have two unique alarms, one for a low value and one for a high
value. The high value should be greater than the low value. If an input reaches one of
the limits, the block sends the actual value and a LOW ALARM or HIGH ALARM
message. The message identifies the circuit in alarm. Only one message is sent upon
reaching the threshold. Alarms do not stop the process or change the value of the input.
Alarm Thresholds are scaled values between +/–32,767 engineering units. For a new
Current–source Analog block, the default Alarm Thresholds are 0 (low) and +25000
(high). Typically, Alarm Thresholds are set at levels beyond which the input should not
operate or levels beyond which alternate processing is required.
Because Alarm Thresholds are engineering units values, if scaling is changed, Alarm
Thresholds should be reviewed and adjusted if necessary. Alarm Thresholds can also be
changed by the ladder logic program in the CPU. If an input reached its high alarm, a
new limit could be set. This could generate a high–high alarm or an alarm–cleared
threshold. Two examples are described on page 10-18.

Output Feedback Testing
After the Feedback Time (see below) period has elapsed, the block compares feedback
from each output to its output value received from the CPU. If these values differ by
more than 250µA, the block reports a Feedback Error for the circuit. For a new block,
feedback testing is enabled for each output. It can be disabled or enabled individually.

Feedback Time
Feedback Time is the interval between the time the block receives an output value from
the CPU, and the time the output channel is expected to attain the commanded value.
This interval is used in conjunction with Feedback Testing, enabled or disabled above. A
suitable interval should be selected so that the output current will reach its commanded
value before the comparison is made. This prevents false Feedback Error diagnostics for
the output. A longer feedback interval should be specified for outputs that respond
slowly to changes in output signal levels. The Feedback Time may be in the range 0mS
to 255mS. For a new block, Feedback Time of 0mS is used for each output.

Hold Last State
Each output can be independently configured to either hold its last value or go to its
powerup default value if the block loses CPU communications for at least 3 bus scans.
For a new block, Hold Last State is disabled for each output. With Hold Last State
disabled, the block sets the output to its powerup default if CPU communications are
lost. If Hold Last State is enabled, the block continues to hold the output at its current
value instead of setting it to the powerup default.
Outputs remain in their last value or default indefinitely or until one of the following
occurs:
H Communications with the CPU are restored.
H The Hand–held Monitor changes the output by forcing it.
H Power is removed from the block.

Output Default Value
Outputs always go to their default values when the block is first powered up. For a new
block, the output default value is 4000.
If Hold Last State was NOT enabled, the block will also default the output if CPU
communications are lost. On a non–redundant system, this occurs approximately
250mS after the third bus scan passes with no CPU communications. If the block is on a
redundant bus downstream of a Bus Switching Module, additional time is needed to
accommodate switching of the BSM (see “Output Default Time” on page 11-18).

When a Bus Switching Module is used, the Output Default Time must be long enough to
allow the BSM to switch without causing outputs to default. Therefore, when BSM
Present is selected (above), the block automatically changes its Output Default Time
from 3 bus scans to 2.5 seconds.
If Hold Last State was selected, the block will hold outputs at their last value while the
BSM switches, instead of defaulting, so there is no need to change this selection.
If Hold Last State was set to NO for either output and total bus scan time will exceed

In Hot Standby mode, a block receives output data from both CPUs but uses the data
from only one of them to drive its outputs. The block prefers outputs sent by the bus
interface module (Bus Controller or PCIM) with Device Number 31. If those outputs are
not available, the block will use outputs from the bus interface module with Device
Number 30. If no outputs from a CPU are available, a Genius I/O block’s outputs will

Diagnostics
Current–source Analog Output Blocks perform the diagnostics described below. If a
fault occurs, the block will report it to the Hand–held Monitor, and take appropriate
corrective action.
Individual circuits can be configured not to send a diagnostic message to the CPU if a
fault occurs. If the CPU requests diagnostic information from the block using a Read
Diagnostic datagram, the block returns current diagnostics for all circuits, including any
with CPU fault reporting disabled.
Output Underrange and Overrange Diagnostics
The block sends an UNDERRANGE message if conversion of the engineering units
output it receives from the CPU results in a commanded output less than 0mA.
It sends an OVERRANGE message if conversion of the engineering units output it
receives from the CPU results in an output signal level that exceeds 24mA. The block
clamps the output to the selected range limit to protect external hardware.
Output Feedback Error
This diagnostic is used to detect wiring errors or other hardware faults on output
circuits. After waiting for a configurable period of time, the block checks the current
level of the output. If it is less than approximately 1.5mA, the block reports a Feedback
Error. The block continues sending new values from the CPU to the output.
Feedback fault reporting should be disabled if a channel is configured for a voltage
application.
Nuisance diagnostics may be reported if the Output Feedback Time selected for the
circuit is too brief. If this happens, increase the feedback time or disable output feedback
testing.

Field Wiring
Terminals 5 through 32 are used for input power,
Bus Switching Module control, and field wiring
devices. These terminals accept AWG #22 to AWG
#14 wires. Do not overtorque the terminal screws.
The ground (GND) terminal (5) is for block safety.
It is connected to the block chassis, and to
terminals 13, 16, 19, 22, 27, and 32 which are
marked GND. Each channel has one ground
terminal for shield termination, if desired.
Connecting a Bus Switching Module to
a CSO Block
If an optional Bus Switching Module is installed,
connect the BSM control wires to terminals 9
and 10. The polarity from the block is as marked;
the BSM is insensitive to polarity.

Power Source Wiring
Connect an appropriate power source to terminals
6 and 7. For AC block power, connect the source to
the H terminal and neutral to the N terminal. For
DC block power, connect the source to the DC+
terminal and the return to the DC– terminal.

Report Faults to CPU
Fault reports to the host can be disabled or enabled for any circuit.
If fault reporting is enabled, the block sends a message to the host if any fault occurs on
that circuit.
If Fault reporting is disabled, the block does not send fault reports to the CPU.
Regardless of whether fault reporting is enabled, the block detects faults on the circuit,
and takes appropriate action. If a fault occurs, the block’s Unit OK LED blinks and a
fault report is sent to a Hand–held Monitor. The fault condition must be corrected for
proper operation of the block.
If the CPU requests diagnostic information from the block using Read Diagnostics
datagrams, the block returns current diagnostics for all circuits, including those with
CPU fault reporting disabled.

Circuit Scaling
All circuits on the block can be scaled independently. To scale a circuit, two sets of values
are entered: two engineering units values and their associated signal levels. Based on
these two pairs of values, the block will be able to calculate engineering units for all
other input or output levels.
The block will use the configured scaling values to convert the output signal levels (0 to
" 24000 µA) into engineering units values. Each engineering units value is an integer to
" 32767. The converted number is still a numerical value, and will appear as such on the
Hand–held Monitor or at the CPU with its programming device. The applicable units of
measure should be recorded separately on a meter or display. Scaling can also be used to
compensate for field device inaccuracies.
On a new block, the scaling is set to 1µA per engineering unit. If this is appropriate, it
will not need to be changed.
The most accurate scaling comes from actual measurements. The process must be set to
two distinctly different conditions, so two engineering units measurements can be taken.
If the block is online to the process, it will automatically provide the signal level for each
engineering units measurement. If the block is not online to the process, the signal level
associated with each engineering units value must also be measured external to the
block.
Entering Scaling Values
If you are NOT measuring the process while scaling the circuit, have the two pairs of
scaling values ready. If you ARE measuring the process to scale the circuit, set the
process to one of the two conditions being measured.
The next configuration screen after the Channel Active screen is this status screen.

Output Feedback Testing
After the Feedback Time (see below) period has elapsed, the block compares feedback
from each output to its output value received from the CPU. If the feedback is less than
1.5mA, the block reports a Feedback Error for the circuit. For a new block, feedback
testing is enabled for all outputs. It can be disabled for any or all.

Feedback Time
Feedback Time is the interval between the time the block receives an output value from

This interval is used in conjunction with Feedback Testing, enabled or disabled above. A
suitable interval should be selected so that the output current will reach its commanded
value before the comparison is made. This prevents false Feedback Error diagnostics for
the output. A longer feedback interval should be specified for outputs that respond
slowly to changes in output signal levels.

Hold Last State
Each output can be independently configured to either hold its last value or go to its
powerup default value if the block loses CPU communications for at least 3 bus scans.
For a new block, Hold Last State is disabled for all outputs. With Hold Last State
disabled, the block sets an the output to its powerup default if CPU communications are
lost.
If Hold Last State is enabled, the block continues to hold the output at its current value
instead of setting it to the powerup default.
Outputs remain in their last value or default indefinitely or until one of the following
occurs:
H Communications with the CPU are restored.
H The Hand–held Monitor changes the output by forcing it.
H Power is removed from the block.

Output Default Value
Outputs always go to their default values when the block is first powered up. For a new
block, the output default value is 4000.
If Hold Last State was NOT enabled, the block will also default the output if CPU
communications are lost. On a non–redundant system, this occurs approximately
250mS after the third bus scan passes with no CPU communications. If the block is on a
redundant bus downstream of a Bus Switching Module, additional time is needed to
accommodate switching of the BSM (see “Output Default Time” on page 12-15).

Output Default Time
When a Bus Switching Module is used, the Output Default Time must be long enough to
allow the BSM to switch without causing outputs to default. Therefore, when BSM
Present is selected (above), the block automatically changes its Output Default Time
from 3 bus scans to 2.5 seconds.
If Hold Last State was selected, the block will hold outputs at their last value while the
BSM switches, instead of defaulting, so there is no need to change this selection.
If Hold Last State was set to NO for any of the outputs and total bus scan time will
exceed 100mS, change this selection to 10 seconds.

CPU Redundancy
The block can be configured for No Controller redundancy or Hot Standby redundancy.
For new blocks, it is set for No Controller Redundancy. It must be changed only if the
block should be able to receive output data from two CPUs.
In Hot Standby mode, a block receives output data from both CPUs but uses the data
from only one of them to drive its outputs. The block prefers outputs sent by the bus
controller with Device Number 31. If those outputs are not available, the block will use
outputs from the bus controller with Device Number 30. If no outputs from a CPU are
available, the outputs either Hold Last State or go to their predefined Output Default
state.

Block Operation
These blocks have six independent inputs.
Input Circuits
Input channels use voltage to frequency converters and counters to translate analog
currents to a digital value. This value is converted by the block to engineering units
before it is sent to the CPU. A diagram of an input circuit is shown below.

Each input circuit has a 24 volt current loop power supply, capable of providing 25mA of
current. Each input is isolated from all other circuits on the block. Input accuracy is
0.1%. Input conversion time can be selected to provide the appropriate combination of
noise rejection and input resolution. Conversion times are programmable from 16mS to
400mS. Resolution increases as the conversion time is lengthened. Input resolution is
1µA for 200mS conversion time.
Upper and lower alarm limits can be programmed for each input circuit. If either limit is
exceeded, the block indicates a fault and sends a message to the Hand–held Monitor
and CPU.

Report Faults to CPU
Fault reports to the host can be disabled or enabled for any circuit.
If fault reporting is enabled, the block sends a message to the host if any fault occurs on
that circuit.
If Fault reporting is disabled, the block does not send fault reports to the CPU.
Regardless of whether fault reporting is enabled, the block detects faults on the circuit,
and takes appropriate action. If a fault occurs, the block’s Unit OK LED blinks and a
fault report is sent to a Hand–held Monitor. The fault condition must be corrected for
proper operation of the block.
If the CPU requests diagnostic information from the block using Read Diagnostics
datagrams, the block returns current diagnostics for all circuits, including those with
CPU fault reporting disabled.

Circuit Scaling
All circuits on the block can be scaled independently. To scale a circuit, two sets of values
are entered: two engineering units values and their associated signal levels. Based on
these two pairs of values, the block will be able to calculate engineering units for all
other input or output levels.
The block will use the configured scaling values to convert the input signal levels (0 to
" 24000 µA) into engineering units values. Each engineering units value is an integer to
" 32767. The converted number is still a numerical value, and will appear as such on the
Hand–held Monitor or at the CPU with its programming device. The applicable units of
measure should be recorded separately on a meter or display. Scaling can also be used to
compensate for field device inaccuracies.
On a new block, the scaling is set to 1µA per engineering unit. If this is appropriate, it
will not need to be changed.
The most accurate scaling comes from actual measurements. The process must be set to
two distinctly different conditions, so two engineering units measurements can be taken.
If the block is online to the process, it will automatically provide the signal level for each
engineering units measurement. If the block is not online to the process, the signal level
associated with each engineering units value must also be measured external to the
block.
Entering Scaling Values
If you are NOT measuring the process while scaling the circuit, have the two pairs of
scaling values ready. If you ARE measuring the process to scale the circuit, set the
process to one of the two conditions being measured.

For greater resolution, increase the configured values by a
convenient multiple, such as 10 or 100. That is, to measure

Input Conversion Time
Input conversion time determines the length of time required to make one analog to
digital conversion on each input channel. The table below shows the available
conversion times and their associated resolution and line rejection capabilities. For a
new block, 400mS is the default. This conversion time, which provides the maximum
resolution and noise rejection, is suitable for most applications.
Change it only if faster update times are required. The following table shows the
available conversion times, and the resolution and noise rejection for each.

Alarm Thresholds
Each input circuit can have two unique alarms, one for a low value and one for a high
value. The high value should be greater than the low value. If an input reaches one of
the limits, the block sends the actual value and a LOW ALARM or HIGH ALARM
message. The message identifies the circuit in alarm. Only one message is sent upon
reaching the threshold. Alarms do not stop the process or change the value of the input.
Alarm Thresholds are scaled values between +/–32,767 engineering units. For a new
Current–source Analog Input block, the default Alarm Thresholds are 0 (low) and
+25000 (high). Typically, Alarm Thresholds are set at levels beyond which the input
should not operate or levels beyond which alternate processing is required.
Because Alarm Thresholds are engineering units values, if scaling is changed, Alarm
Thresholds should be reviewed and adjusted if necessary. Alarm Thresholds can also be
changed by the ladder logic program in the CPU. If an input reached its high alarm, a
new limit could be set. This could generate a high–high alarm or an alarm–cleared
threshold. Two examples are described on page 10-18.

CPU Redundancy
The block can be configured for No Controller redundancy or Hot Standby redundancy.
For new blocks, it is set for No Controller Redundancy. It must be changed only if the
block should be able to receive output data from two CPUs.
In Hot Standby mode, a block receives communications from both CPUs. The block
prefers communications sent by the bus interface module (Bus Controller or PCIM) with
Device Number 31. If communications from that controller are not available, the block
will accept communications from Device Number 30.

Opto–couplers isolate the control and clock signals; a small transformer isolates the
circuit power. A synchronous voltage–to–frequency converter changes the measured
signals to the proportional frequency sent via an opto–coupler to the processor. The
processor’s frequency counter converts this synchronous frequency to a 16–bit binary
number.
The processor corrects each input measurement for lead resistance and for internal offset
and gain drifts as it converts the input to an ohmic value. This value is either reported as
is, or linearized according to the RTD type selected and converted to a value in degrees.
The per channel update rate (input filter time) is preset. It may be 400, 800, or 1600
milliseconds. These selections provide 14, 15, or 16 bit resolution of the measurement.

Diagnostics
Circuit diagnostics for RTD Input blocks are listed below. Active circuits can be
configured not to send diagnostic messages to the CPU if a fault occurs. However, such
circuits still respond to faults and report them to the Hand–held Monitor.
If the CPU requests diagnostic information from the block using a Read Diagnostic
datagram, the block returns current diagnostics for all active circuits, including any with
CPU fault reporting disabled. It will not return diagnostics from inactive circuits.
It is necesssary to clear any fault that occurs to re-enable detection of that particular
fault. For example, after a high alarm is reported the temperature may drop back to an
acceptable level. The block continues to supply the actual temperature data. However, to
re-enable high alarm detection, it is necessary to clear the existing High Alarm fault
report.
Input
Shorted
This diagnostic indicates an input circuit measurement below the minimum expected
for RTD type. It may indicate a fault in the wiring or in the RTD. Instead of reporting the
actual input value, the block uses the appropriate Underrange value (see below).
Internal Fault
An internal fault occurs if one or more of the internal auto–calibration readings for a
pair of channels is out of tolerance. When this fault occurs, the block reports a value of
zero for each channel of the faulty pair. The block’s Electronics Assembly should be
replaced.
Wiring Error
A wiring error fault occurs if connections between the RTD and the block’s Terminal
Assembly are incorrect. The incorrect connections may cause faulty input data to be
reported. Field wiring should be changed to match the wiring diagram indicated on the
block’s faceplate.
Open Wire
The block reports an Open Wire diagnostic if there is less current than expected for the
input type on that circuit. An Open Wire diagnostic may also mean that the input circuit
excitation current is not present. The RTD may be missing or faulty, or the RTD is not
connected to the block.
Overrange
The block sends an Overrange message if the Celsius or Fahrenheit input value exceeds
expected maximum positive value (limits are 850C or 1562F for platinum, 250C or
482F for nickel, +3276.7C or +3276.7F otherwise). This only occurs when converting
to units of temperature.
Underrange
The block sends an Underrange message if the Celsius or Fahrenheit value exceeds
expected maximum negative value (limits are –200C or –328F for platinum, –60C or
–76F for nickel, –3276.7C or –3276.7F otherwise).
Low Alarm/
High Alarm
Individual low and high alarm thresholds can be configured for each input. If an input
reaches one of its alarm thresholds, the block reports a Low Alarm or High Alarm
diagnostic. The diagnostic is triggered upon reaching the limit and will not be repeated
until circuit faults are cleared.

Field Wiring
Terminals 5 through 32 are for wiring field devices.
They accept AWG #22 to AWG #14 wires.
Power Source Wiring
For block power, connect an appropriate power
source to terminals 6 and 7. For an AC block,
connect the AC source to the HOT terminal and
neutral to the NEUT terminal. For a DC block,
connect the DC source to the DC+ terminal and the
return to the DC– terminal.
The ground (GND) terminal (5) is for block safety.
It is connected to the block chassis.
Wiring for Input Devices
There are 4 terminals available for each input
device: a SIG, RTN, REF, and SHLD input.
Connect RTDs between the SIG and RTN
terminals.
The REF input is used for lead wire
compensation of a 3–wire RTD. For a 3–wire
RTD, connect the third wire to the REF terminal.
For 2–wire RTDs, short the REF terminal to the
RTN terminal.

Noise Suppression
If noise spikes exceeding 4000 volts will be present
in the system, additional noise suppression is
needed to protect the block. This can be provided
by physically separating and shielding the RTD
input leads from any noise source.
Each circuit also has a SHLD terminal for shield
termination, if desired. This terminal is internally
connected to the block chassis and to the input
power safety ground terminal.
Additional suppression can be provided by
connecting three MOVs to the block; one for each
pair of input points (inputs 1&2, 3&4, and 5&6 are
pairs). For one point of each input pair, connect the
MOV between the RTN and SHLD terminals. For
example, connect:
terminals 10 and 12 for input 1
terminals 18 and 20 for input 3
terminals 26 and 28 for input 5, shown below.

Report Faults to CPU
Fault reports to the host can be disabled or enabled for any circuit.
If fault reporting is enabled, the block sends a message to the host if any fault occurs on
that circuit.
Regardless of whether fault reporting is enabled, the block will detect faults on the circuit,
and take appropriate actions. The block’s Unit OK LED will blink when a fault occurs,
and a fault report will be sent to a Hand–held Monitor. The fault condition must be
corrected for proper operation of the block.
If the CPU requests diagnostic information from the block using Read Diagnostics
datagrams, the block returns current diagnostics for all circuits, including any with CPU
fault reporting disabled.

Units
The block can be configured to report data as engineering units or as unconverted
counts.
If units of Celsius, Fahrenheit, or ohms are selected, the block will automatically calibrate
and convert input data into engineering units of:
H tenths of a degree Celsius
H tenths of a degree Fahrenheit
H tenths of ohms
Values are reported to the CPU as tenths of units. For example, 300.2 ohms is reported to
the CPU as 3002. This provides greater resolution than simply reporting integer values.
The Hand–held Monitor accurately displays the engineering units value to one decimal
place. The same 300.2 ohms appears on the HHM as:
300.2 Ω
If counts are selected, values are reported as they are received from the hardware, with
no auto calibration performed.

Linearization
The block converts the resistance from an RTD into degrees according to the type of
Linearization selected for the circuit. The default Linearization type is platinum.
Copper, nickel, or linear (configured for RTDs that do not conform to the DIN 43760
standard) may also be selected.
If platinum or nickel is configured, the block linearizes the input according to the DIN
43760 standard. If copper or linear is configured, the block linearizes the input using a
straight line approximation based on the RTD resistance and Alpha type. If copper or
linear is selected, the block converts resistance to temperature based on the entries made
for RTD Resistance and Alpha, using this equation:
(RTD Resistance at TC)–(R TD Resistance at 0C)
Measured Temp (TC)=
(RTD Resistance at 0C x Alpha)

Calculating RTD Resistance
If it is necessary to calculate RTD Resistance, follow these steps.
1.
Select high and low resistance values for the RTD. They should represent the span
over which the RTD is expected to operate. Appropriate values should be provided
in the manufacturer’s documentation. If not, measure two resistance values:
RTD Resistance (W)
Measure lower RTD resistance.
In this example, resistance
is 200.0W at 270C.
Measure upper RTD resistance.
In this example, resistance
is 220.0W at 320C.

Alarm Thresholds
Each RTD input is associated with a low alarm threshold and a high alarm threshold. If
an input reaches one of its thresholds, the block sends the actual value and a LOW
ALARM or HIGH ALARM message. The message identifies the circuit in alarm. Only
one message is sent upon reaching the limit. Alarms do not stop the process or change
the value of the input.

Alarm thresholds can be set anywhere over the dynamic range of the signal. If alarm
reporting is not wanted, the circuit’s alarm thresholds can be set beyond the dynamic
range of the signal so they will never be activated.
Because alarm thresholds are engineering units values, if units are changed, alarm
thresholds should be reviewed and adjusted if necessary. The block will automatically
switch to the default alarm thresholds when the engineering units are changed. The
previous alarm limits will be saved and restored if the units selection is changed back to
its previous value. If power is removed from the block, the thresholds for the
currently–selected engineering units will be saved and restored when power is restored
to the block.
Alarm thresholds can also be changed by the application program in the CPU. If an
input reached its high alarm, a new limit could be set. This could generate a high alarm,
or an alarm–cleared threshold. Two examples are described on page 10-18.

Thermocouple Input Blocks are primarily used to monitor
temperature inputs from standard thermocouples. They can
also be used to measure low–level voltage input signals. Two
blocks are available:
H
H
115 VAC/125 VDC ThermocoupleBlock(IC660BBA103)
24/48 VDC ThermocoupleBlock(IC660BBA023)
They are the same except for the power supply.
Features
A Thermocouple block has six input circuits, in three isolated
groups. " 10 V common mode voltage (maximum) allowed
between 2 points in a group. Each group has two
thermocouple input circuits and two remote cold junction
compensation inputs. Group to group isolation is 300 volts.
Each input can interface to type J, K, T, E, B, R, S, and N (#14
AWG Nicrosil vs. Nisil) thermocouples. The block provides
cold junction compensation for all thermocouple input
measurements. Each channel can be configured to use an
internal sensor, an external sensor, or a user–defined value for
cold–junction compensation. An external signal from a
remote junction can be either a voltage (XJV) or a current (XJI)
analog of temperature. The XJV input is scaled for 1.0mV per
degree Celsius and the XJI input is scaled for 1.0uA per degree
Kelvin. After compensation, the block linearizes each
thermocouple input measurement according to the NBS
monograph for the type in use.
Each input measurement can be adjusted up to " 100.0C or
" 100.0F for greatest accuracy.

Block Operation
A Thermocouple Input Block has three isolated pairs of inputs. Transformers isolate
power and optical couplers provide signal isolation.
For each pair of inputs:
GEK-90486D-2
1.
After filtering, each signal input is sequentially switched into a common amplifier
whose output is applied to a voltage–to–frequency converter. The output signal
frequency of the VFC is applied to a frequency counter via an optical coupler. The
output frequency is counted for a 400 millisecond gate time, which is a common
multiple of all the common line frequency periods. This provides considerable
rejection of line frequency pickups.
2.
The multiplexer intersperses other inputs between the two main thermocouple
input times. The other inputs come from the cold junction sensors and from internal
references. The cold junction inputs are measured and stored for later
compensation of the normal thermocouple input measurement errors.
3.
To detect and correct for any gain or offset drift in the amplifier or VFC, the block
takes new readings of factory–calibrated internal reference levels during operation.
These new measurements are compared to reference values stored by the block.
4.
The processor converts the cold junction temperature value to a voltage as specified
by the NBS monograph for the thermocouple type in use. This voltage is then
added to the thermocouple measurement before converting to thermal units. Since
there may be some small differences between the cold junction temperature
measurement and the actual cold junction temperature, an offset adjustment can be
entered using a Hand–held Monitor. These offsets are due to variances in the
terminal strip assembly and the correction factors are therefore stored in the
Terminal Assembly EEPROM.
Chapter 15 Thermocouple 6 Input Blocks

Block Measurement Accuracy
The overall accuracy of the block in a given application depends on both:
1.
Accurate measurement of the thermocouple millivolt signal.
2.
Accurate compensation of the cold junction connections.
The block can measure the input millivolt signal to an accuracy of " 10µV (typical) or "
20µV (maximum). Depending on the thermocouple type used and the temperatures
being measured, measurement accuracy in C or F can be determined.
The output from a thermocouple varies in a non–linear manner as the temperature
being measured changes. Furthermore, each thermocouple type has a unique
characteristic.
The following table may be used as a guide to estimate accuracy in units of degrees. It
lists optimal accuracy for each thermocouple type, without allowing for conditions that
might be encountered in the application, or for the accuracy of the specific thermocouple
being used. For a more accurate estimate, consult the NBS monograph published for the
thermocouple type used in the application, referencing the temperature range to be
measured.

Cold junction compensation can be performed internally by the block itself, or remotely.
The block has a cold junction sensor which is set at the factory to compensate the cold
junction to within " 2C typically. If a more accurate setting is required, this
compensation can be adjusted using a Hand–held Monitor, after the block is installed
(see page 15-14).

Diagnostics
Circuit diagnostics for Thermocouple Input Blocks are listed below. These diagnostics
are automatically performed by the block for any active circuit. Active circuits can be
configured not to send diagnostic messages to the CPU if a fault occurs. However, such
circuits still respond to faults and report them to the Hand–held Monitor. If a circuit is
configured as “inactive”, it will not detect faults or report diagnostics.
If the CPU requests diagnostic information from the block using a Read Diagnostic
datagram, the block returns current diagnostics for all active circuits, including any with
CPU fault reporting disabled. It will not return diagnostics from inactive circuits.
Internal Fault
An internal fault occurs if one or more of the internal references is faulty. While this
fault is present, the block reports a value of zero for each channel using the faulty
reference(s). The block’s Electronics Assembly should be replaced.
Open Wire
The block reports an Open Wire diagnostic if there is a missing or faulty connection to
the thermocouple input, XJV input, or XJI input for the channel.
Overrange/Underrange
This diagnostic is reported only if engineering units of Celsius or Fahrenheit are selected.
It indicates either that:
1.
The input temperature exceeds the expected range for the thermocouple type in
use. The expected range for each thermocouple type, derived from the
corresponding NBS monograph, is:

Low Alarm/High Alarm
Individual low and high alarm thresholds can be configured for each input. If an input
reaches one of its alarm thresholds, the block reports a Low Alarm or High Alarm
diagnostic. The diagnostic is triggered upon reaching the limit and will not be repeated
until circuit faults are cleared.

Field Wiring
Terminals 5 through 32 are used for input power,
Bus Switching Module control, and field wiring
devices. These terminals accept AWG #22 to
AWG #14 wires. For the smaller gauge

of the same alloy are recommended to make
installation easier.

Report Faults to CPU
Fault reports to the host can be disabled or enabled for any circuit on a block. If fault
reporting is enabled for a circuit, the block will send a message to the host if any fault
occurs on that circuit. If Fault reporting is disabled, the block will not send fault reports
to the CPU for that circuit.
Regardless of whether fault reporting is enabled, the block will detect faults on the circuit,
and take appropriate actions. The Unit OK LED will blink when a fault occurs, and a
fault report is sent to a Hand–held Monitor. The fault condition must be corrected for
proper operation of the block.
If the CPU requests diagnostic information from the block using Read Diagnostics
datagrams, the block returns current diagnostics for all circuits, including any with CPU
fault reporting disabled.

Units
The block can be configured to report data as engineering units or as unconverted
counts.
If units of Celsius, Fahrenheit, or millivolts are selected, the block will automatically
calibrate and convert input data into engineering units of:
H tenths of a degree Celsius
H tenths of a degree Fahrenheit
H hundredths of millivolts
Temperature values are reported to the CPU as tenths of units. For example, 300.2
degrees Celsius is reported to the CPU as 3002. This provides greater resolution than
simply reporting integer values.
The Hand–held Monitor accurately displays the temperature value to one decimal
place. The same 300.2 degrees Celsius appears on the HHM as:
300.2C
Millivolt values are reported to the CPU as hundredths of millivolts. For example,
300.25mV is reported to the CPU as:
30025
The Hand-held Monitor accurately displays the millivolt value to two decimal places.
The same 300.25mV appears on the Hand-held Monitor as:

Alarm Thresholds
For each input, these configured values determine the values at which low alarm and
high alarm conditions will be reported. The selectable range is –32767 to +32767
engineering units, if the configuration for Units was Celsius, Fahrenheit, or millivolts. If
counts were configured as the units for the block, the range is 0 to 65535 counts.
Because alarm thresholds are engineering units values, if units are changed, alarm
thresholds should be reviewed and adjusted if necessary. The block will automatically
switch to the default alarm thresholds when the engineering units are changed. The
previous alarm limits will be saved and restored if the units selection is changed back to
its previous value. If power is removed from the block, the thresholds for the
currently–selected engineering units will be saved and restored when power is restored
to the block.
Alarm thresholds can also be changed by the application program in the CPU. If an
input reached its high alarm, a new limit could be set. This could generate a high–high
alarm or an alarm–cleared threshold. Two examples are described on page 10-18.

section level 1 1
figure bi level 1
table_big level 1
This chapter explains how to decide what size enclosure to use, based upon the sizes of
the blocks it will contain, and upon the amount of heat they will generate during
operation.
Space Needed for Blocks
When mounting I/O blocks in an enclosure, space must be provided around each block
for wiring and airflow. Allow 3 inches to 6 inches (about 8 cm to 15 cm) of empty space
at the top of an enclosure. Also, allow at least 1.5 inches (3.8 cm) between the sides of
adjacent blocks, and 3 inches (7.6 cm) above and below blocks. As a rough guide, each
block will require a space approximately 12 inches (30 cm) high, 5 inches (13 cm) wide,
and 6 inches (15.2 cm) deep.
If blocks will be installed vertically one above the other (minimum 3 inches/7.6 cm),
allow space for blocks to be staggered. This permits hot air generated by lower blocks to
pass between upper blocks. Place blocks that generate more heat toward the top. The
following illustration shows how six blocks could be mounted in an enclosure 24 inches
(61 cm) high and 20 inches (50.5 cm) wide.
There must be space for free flow of air along each block’s Electronics Assembly (the side
opposite the Terminal Assembly). Wiring conduits, shelves, and other components
(including projections on the cover or door) should not inhibit cooling airflow around
the blocks.

Heat Dissipation
Particularly when using discrete blocks, it is important to be sure that the size of an
enclosure is adequate for amount of heat that will be generated within it. You should
calculate the heat generation as described below.
1.
Identify the types of I/O blocks within the enclosure.
2.
Estimate the I/O mix and duty cycle of each block; unused circuits should be
considered inputs with 0% duty cycle.
As an example, if there were two outputs driving a solenoid valve open and closed,
one of which must be energized at all times, both might be on for one or two AC
cycles while the system switched from one state to another. An insignificant amount
of heat would be generated while both were on. For temperature estimating, they
should be thought of as one output on for 100% of the time; however, for AC power
loads and circuit breaker selection, they could be thought of as two loads that would
draw a larger than normal current during switchover.
GEK–90486D–2
3.
Use the table on the next page to estimate heat dissipation for each block. Begin
with the Watts per block. Multiply the number of outputs by the additional number
of Watts for each output circuit. Multiply the number of inputs by the additional
number of Watts per input circuit. Add the total number of Watts for the block, for
outputs, and for inputs. This number represents the number of Watts of dissipated
heat when outputs conduct full current at 100% duty cycle.
4.
Add the estimated heat from each block to that generated by other electronics in the
enclosure. Remember that most of the heat will be generated by field devices
connected to the I/O blocks, not by the I/O blocks themselves.

Heat Dissipation of NEMA–Type Enclosures
The table on the next page shows the heat dissipation, surface area, and dimensions
standard NEMA–type enclosures.
Calculating Available Surface Area: To use an enclosure size not listed in the table, find
the amount of available surface area (in square inches) needed for heat transfer by
multiplying the total number of Watts by one of the numbers below:
for 25C ambient temperature: Watts x 7.8
for 35C ambient temperature: Watts x 12.6
for 45C ambient temperature: Watts x 33
For example, if the total amount of heat generated is 400 Watts, the minimum enclosure
surface area at 35C ambient necessary to prevent the enclosure interior temperature
from exceeding 55C would be:
400 x 12.6 = 5040 sq in
To transfer heat, this surface area must be exposed to free space. For example, in a
wall–mounted enclosure the back is not exposed so it is not available for heat transfer.
For a floor–mounted enclosure, the bottom is not generally available for heat transfer
and the sides or back may also not be exposed.
Calculating Power Dissipation for an Enclosure
To estimate heat dissipation for enclosures of different sizes, you can use a factor of 6
Watts per square meter of exposed surface area (.004 Watts per square inch) per C of
temperature difference between the inside and outside ambient temperatures of an
enclosure. This is relatively accurate for a 20C temperature difference. However, it is
less accurate for other temperature differences.
As an example of calculating power dissipation, an enclosure is 48 inches (121.92 cm)
high, 30 inches (76.2 cm) wide, and 18 inches (45.72 cm) deep. It is floor–mounted and
its bottom and back are not exposed for heat transfer.

Total available surface area is 3708 square inches (23923 cm2). For 35C ambient
temperature, the table on the next page shows that a surface area of 3780 square inches
(24387cm2) will dissipate 300 Watts. For the slightly smaller size of the example
enclosure, you could estimate heat dissipation of approximately 295 Watts.

This chapter explains how Genius I/O blocks can be used to back up critical I/O points
for failsafe operation. The type of blocks needed will depend on installation
requirements.
There may be:
1.
Two points tied together to the same load. This requires two source or sink discrete
DC blocks.
2.
Two points going through relay contacts to the same load. Two discrete DC blocks
and a Relay block are needed for this.
3.
Parallel/series I/O points tied to the same load. This can be done using two AC or DC
discrete blocks.
Two DC Blocks Tied to the Same Load
With Genius I/O blocks, tying two points together directly will cause error messages.
With intervening diodes, however, two source or sink DC blocks can be used to protect
against failed off (open) conditions. This method does NOT protect against failed on
(short) conditions.

To protect against both failed off (open) and failed on (short) conditions, a Relay block is
needed in addition to the two DC source or sink blocks. The same Relay block could also
be used to back up other points. Operation of the relay would be controlled by the
application program in response to diagnostics received from the other two blocks.

See if the Electronics Assembly is attached to the Terminal Assembly properly.
Check to see if block power wires are connected to proper terminals.
Check for an EEPROM failure.
If this problem also occurs with other blocks, the bus may not be properly
terminated.
If the above conditions are met, replace Electronics Assembly.
H
None of the circuits on one block are working.
h
h
h
Check Terminal Assembly wiring.
Ensure Terminal Assembly voltage is proper for your block.
The block may be offline due to a Device Number conflict. The Unit OK and
I/O Enabled LEDs will blink together. Reprogram the Device Number to one
that is unassigned.
If the problem persists, replace the block’s Electronics Assembly.
H
One circuit on a operating block is not working at all.
h
h
h
h
Try another circuit on the same block to verify operation of sensor or actuator.
Check wiring for that circuit.
Reseat the Electronics Assembly carefully.
See if the circuit will switch when forced with the HHM.
If the problem persists, replace the block’s Electronics Assembly.
H
One circuit on an operating block is not being recognized by the CPU.
h
h

Check block’s Redundancy mode with HHM.
Determine whether outputs to the block(s) are currently disabled. Information
on disabled outputs is in your bus controller manual.
The CPU is not receiving all inputs, or the blocks are not receiving all outputs.
CPU program execution time and bus scan time may not be compatible,
resulting in lost inputs or lost outputs. The Genius I/O System User’s Manual
explains program execution time and bus scan time.
H
In a Series Six Plus PLC system, one or more operating blocks seem to have
incorrect inputs and/or outputs.
Check for duplicate or overlapping I/O addresses on another bus or with
another I/O module.
H
A block’s UNIT OK blinks, indicating a circuit fault.
h
h
Check the fault using a Hand–held Monitor, or at the CPU.
If there appears not to be an actual circuit fault, see if an EEPROM has failed in
the Terminal Assembly by:
a. Poweringdown/up
b. Changing configuration/retry
c. If a block indicates a Terminal Assembly EEPROM fault, issuing the Clear All
Circuit Faults command (from the HHM or CPU) causes the block to attempt
to rewrite the EEPROM. If successful, the fault caused by the failure of the
EEPROM is removed; otherwise, a fault type 0 is reported to the CPU.

18-4
Check the load and power supply conditions during machine operation and at
rest. If nothing is wrong, replace the block’s Electronics Assembly. If this does
not clear up the problem, replace the block.
Check for sources of electro–magnetic interference. Watch for problems that
occur immediately after the operation of a particular input or load device. If
observation fails to reveal the problem, the application program can be used to
monitor for circuits that repeatedly change state just before faults are reported.
Look for inadequate level separation of wiring and poor suppression. In
particular, look for wiring that carries current between an unsuppressed contact
and load which is mixed with Genius wiring. This can cause problems even
with high inductance/low current loads that generate high dV/dT. While these
are most commonly found on higher voltage (120 or 480 volt) supplies, other
high energy loads are also suspect.
Look at higher energy loads and at coil voltages of contactors driven by
interposing contacts. Switch the load using the contacts to check for noise on
the contacts. Any devices that produce voltage spikes reaching 400 volts or
more in less than 1 microsecond (400 volts per microsecond) may cause
problems. The load should be suppressed. The type and amount of suppression
needed to reduce dV/dT can be significantly lower than would be needed to
suppress arcing. Generally, lowering the dV/dT to less than 20 volts per
microsecond is sufficient. The values determined by the 1mfd per amp rule
result in 1 volt per microsecond. Lower values can be tried experimentally.
If a Genius block is running on a floating power source, common mode
switching to the supply voltage and not recovering to zero generally indicates a
grounded load. High amplitude fast transients which give common mode
voltages greater than twice the supply, followed by a slow recovery back to zero,
indicate significant noise energy coupled back into the system. Such systems are
sometimes improved by adding bypass capacitors to ground or hard grounding
one side of the supply. The bypass or ground should be located close to the
injection point of the noise. If this is not known, distribute bypasses over the
entire system.

Use of Register assignments for most I/O blocks is discouraged in Series Six applications, since a DPREQ/WINDOW
command must be used to update the data, which is not updated automatically as when assigned to the I/O tables.
Furthermore, all diagnostics from the block are lost when the block is assigned to Register space.
*
In Series Six and Series Five, assignments to Register space result in inputs being located in lower–order registers,
starting at the designated register, followed by outputs in higher–order registers. Inputs and outputs are always placed
in separate registers. Discrete circuits are located in the low–order bits first (Circuit #1 in bit 1 of Register n, etc.). Analog
circuits are located in the low–order registers first (Circuit #1 in Register n, etc.).
#
Analog Inputs are multiplexed into the Series Six Input Table, updated at the rate of one channel per PLC sweep. The
channel reading is located in I n–n+15 and the channel number in the next byte up (I n+16–n+18). The Read Analog
Inputs DPREQ/WINDOW command may be used to move all input data simultaneously into registers designated by the
command.

AQ data located in %AQn and %AQn+ 1. References %AQn+ 2 and %AQn+ 3 are not used.
