Figure 1: PLC System Using Genius Gateway GCG001
The GCG001 operates as a Genius Bus Controller on a Genius network. It scans the Genius IO
devices configured to it, retrieving input data and providing output data. It then exchanges
that data with its configured PROFINET IO Controller over its Ethernet interfaces at the
configured production rate. The GCG001 can manage communications for up to 31 Genius IO
devices on a single Genius Serial Bus.
The GCG001 also operates as an “IO Device” on PROFINET, controlled by the PROFINET IO
Controller (PNC001 or CPE330 LAN 2) to which it is attached. Thus, when correctly configured,
the entire Genius Bus, including the GCG001 itself, becomes visible to the controlling PLC. Note
that the GCG001 operates only with GE PLC PROFINET IO Controllers.
PROFINET operates on an Ethernet network. If the Ethernet network or Genius serial bus
communications are lost, the GCG001 manages I/O states according to the individual module
configurations.
Both PROFINET and Genius may be set up in Redundant configurations. These are discussed
later in this manual.

upgrade kit available on the Support website.
The Genius Gateway requires an external 24Vdc power
supply and does not draw power from the Rx3i backplane.
Swapping out the GCG001 will therefore not impact the PLC.
However, this cannot be performed without disconnecting its
power supply. If configured to support Genius Hot Standby,
the loss of a single GCG001 will be tolerated; otherwise not.
For system standards, general operating specifications, and installation requirements, refer to
the PACSystems RX3i System Manual, GFK-2314.

Chapter 1. Introduction
1.4.1 Mounting
The GCG001 may either be panel-mounted or mounted in the rightmost slot (expansion slot)
of an RX3i rack (IC695CHS012, IC695CHS016).
Note: The SD Card supplied with the GCG001 will have been installed at the factory. See
section 2.4.1 for instructions for installing the SD Card when doing a retrofit. The presence of
the SD Card should be checked before mounting the module.
Note: Clearance of 3 inches (75mm) must be provided above and below the module for
proper ventilation and to permit cable access.
Note: External power must always be supplied to the module, regardless of which
mounting arrangement is chosen. When rack-mounted, the GCG001 does not draw power
from the RX3i Universal Backplane.
RX3i Backplane Mounting
The GCG001 may be mounted in the
rightmost slot (expansion slot) of an RX3i
Universal Backplane.
The two captive M3.5 screws at the rear
of the GCG001 align with mating tapped
holes on the right side of the backplane,
providing a convenient mounting
location. When rack-mounted, the
module does not make contact with the
backplane connector.
Panel-Mounting
Panel-mounting allows for mounting
where no RX3i backplane slot is
available. The two captive M3.5 machine
screws on the GCG001 can be used for
attaching the unit to a panel.
Note: The panel must have a
minimum thickness of 2.4mm (0.094in).
1. Drill two mounting holes using the
spacing shown in the drawing (at
right) and tap for M3.5 (3.5 x 0.6mm).
2. Align the two mounting screws of the
module with the mounting holes in
the panel.
3. Using a Philips screwdriver, tighten
the two screws to a maximum torque
of 0.5 Nm (4.4 in-lbs).

PROFINET Operation Overview
An RX3i Genius Communications Gateway (GCG001) uses PROFINET communications for data
exchange with the PLC. As noted above, the data rate must be 100Mbps full-duplex or faster.
The same network may be used for basic Ethernet communications, but use of a separate
Ethernet network and RX3i Ethernet interface is recommended.
PROFINET Communications
Communications on an RX3i PROFINET network use the standard PROFINET communications
described in this section. Note, however, that the Genius Gateway GCG001 is constrained to
work only with GE PROFINET PLC products.
Application Relationships
Before a PROFINET IO-Controller can exchange data with a PROFINET IO-Device such as the
GCG001, an Application Relationship (connection) must be established between the devices.
The PROFINET IO-Controller automatically sets up the correct number and types of Application
Relationship and Communication Relationship channels (see below) based on its Proficy
Machine Edition (PME) configuration. Usually, only one Application Relationship is established
per IO-Device.
Communication Relationships within an Application Relationship
Within each Application Relationship, the PROFINET IO-Controller establishes the following
types of Communication Relationships (CRs):
•
Record Data CRs – always the first to be established within an Application Relationship.
Record Data Communication Relationships are used for non-real-time transfers of data
records such as startup parameter data, diagnostics data, identification data, and
configuration data.
IO CRs – used for the real-time, cyclic transfer of IO data
Alarm CR – used for real-time, acyclic transfer of alarms and events
•
•
The following illustration represents an Application Relationship between an RX3i PROFINET
Controller and an RX3i Genius Gateway GCG001.

Figure 6: Real-Time & Non-Real-Time Data Types
•
Real-Time (RT) communication: PROFINET real-time communication is used for time-sensitive
data. A PROFINET IO-Controller (PROFINET Controller) and PROFINET IO-Device use two types
of real-time communications to exchange data: cyclic communication and acyclic
communication:
•
•
•
Real-time Cyclic communication is used to periodically transfer the application’s input
and output data. Cyclic communication occurs each PROFINET IO production cycle.
Real-time Acyclic communication is used to transfer non-periodic data such as alarms.
Acyclic communication occurs only when needed.
Non-Real-Time (NRT) communication: PROFINET non-real-time communication is used for
less time-sensitive data such as configuration, parameterization, diagnostics, and
identification data.
Operations of the Genius Communications Gateway
The Genius Communications Gateway performs the following operations:
•
•
•
•
•
GFK-2892B
Consumes PROFINET IO-Device configuration from the PROFINET IO-Controller over the
PROFINET network.
Scans input data from each Genius device it manages and produces that data to the
PROFINET IO-Controller.
Consumes the output data that it receives from the PROFINET IO-Controller and applies it
to each Genius device it manages.
Where needed, translates Genius Datagrams (background traffic) into PROFINET
packages that are sent to the PROFINET Controller. This includes Datagrams that
originated at the Genius Devices, such as Fault Reports.
Translates PROFINET packages that are sent by the PROFINET Controller into Genius
Datagrams. This includes Datagrams that originated at the PLC through use of COMMREQ
or Data_Init_Comm instructions. For example, a COMMREQ is used to generate a Clear
Fault Report datagram.

Genius IO-Device Scan: In this example, each GCG scans all of its Genius devices. The GCG
stores the devices’ input data into its internal memory. Every time the GCG gets a turn on the
Genius bus, it transmits the output data from its internal memory to each of the Genius
devices.
3rd party devices: The transfer of IO data between an IO module and the PROFINET IO network
is device dependent. Refer to the third party manufacturer documentation for specifics for a
particular device.
PROFINET IO Production Cycle: Each PROFINET Controller and IO-Device publishes data from
its internal memory onto the network at its scheduled PROFINET production cycle (Note:
Production cycles between IO-Controllers and IO-Devices are not synchronized; each
publishes at its configured update rate independently). The PROFINET Controller publishes
output data received from the RX3i CPU to each IO-Device, and the IO-Device publishes input
data from its memory to the PROFINET Controller.
RX3i CPU Sweep: The RX3i CPU Sweep includes both an input scan and an output scan. The
CPU input scan retrieves the current input data being stored within the PROFINET Controller
module. This input data is then available for use by the application logic. After the logic
solution, the CPU output scan writes the outputs to the PROFINET Controller.

Chapter 1. Introduction
Media Redundancy Protocol Support
PROFINET Media Redundancy Protocol (MRP) supports devices configured in a ring topology.
MRP is specified as part of IEC62439 and has been adopted by the PROFINET specification,
which provides for convenient configuration of the ring topology and necessary parameters.
Like PROFINET IO data, Media Redundancy Protocol operations are not routable between
different IP subnets.
Each device within an MRP ring has two physical pathways to the IO-Controller. To connect to
the ring, each device requires an integrated switch with at least two external ports (ring ports)
that support MRP. Devices that are not MRP-capable can be connected to a device in the ring
(i.e., an MRP-capable switch in the ring), but they should not be in the ring themselves. The
redundancy capability offered by the ring topology only extends to the devices on the ring
that are MRP-capable and enabled.
One of the devices on the ring must be configured as the Media Redundancy Manager (MRM),
and all the other devices must be configured as Media Redundancy Clients (MRCs). The
GCG001 can be configured as an MRC. Configuring the GCG as an MRC alters how the
Ethernet ports connect to the network. They attempt to indicate their state to the MRM before
allowing traffic to flow between the ports and close the ring topology through the internal
switch. They also send out notifications to the MRM when a port is lost. Operation of the
GCG001 is otherwise unchanged.
The MRP configuration is stored in non-volatile storage in the GCG001 and activated
immediately upon powering up. Non-volatile storage is updated as part of a connection with
the IO-Controller. A PROFINET Discovery & Configuration Protocol (DCP) Reset disables MRP
Client operation and updates non-volatile storage. The current state of the MRP configuration
is provided as part of the GCG’s Gateway Status Bits which are accessible to user application
logic. Refer to the description of Gateway Status Bits in Section 5.1.1 for further details.
Fast ring-break detection is not fully functional until all MRP clients have received their MRP
configuration. For a discussion of ring-break detection, refer to the following section,
Bumpless Operation with MRP.
Bumpless Operation with MRP
The GCG001 supports bumpless operation under MRP.
1.6
System Limits
IO-Controllers have limitations on the size of the system they support. One of these limits is
the number of PROFINET sub-modules supported. The GCG001 uses four sub-modules: two
for basic operation and two built-in port sub-modules that are always configured. Each
Genius device attached to a GCG001 uses one additional sub-module.
Other limitations, such as the configuration and IO sizes are specific to the configuration
options chosen. Note that not every combination of options is supported in every system. If
the configuration uses all Genius bus slots with a corresponding large device count, the
memory of the IO-Controller system will be a limiting resource.
See GFK-2571 for actual limits in the RX3i PROFINET Controller (PNC001).
See GEK-90486, Genius I/O System and Communications User's Manual for information on how
much I/O, and which type of I/O, need to be allocated to Genius devices,
Machine Edition (v8.0 or later) takes into account both system limits and I/O allocation.

1.7
Operational Differences vs. Genius Bus Controller
Persons migrating from a Genius environment where the Genius Bus Controller performs
functions similar to those of the GCG001 will want to be aware of the following differences:
1.
COMMREQ function block SYSID and Task parameters change. SYSID is now the rack &
slot of the PNC connected to the GCG001. Task is now 132.
2.
COMMREQ data blocks are different, mainly due to added PROFINET Device Number and
expansion of memory address fields from one word to two words. See COMMREQ
summary in Section 6.3.3.
3.
Pulse Test and Assign Monitor COMMREQs do not support Genius bus address of 255 to
send messages to all blocks.
4.
COMMREQ commands: GCG001 does not support all datagrams. See section 6.3.2 for a
corresponding list of supported COMMREQs.
5.
GCG001 supports hot-standby and duplex redundancy modes only. No support for dualbus redundancy.
6.
GCG001 can be assigned to bus addresses 30 and 31 only.
7.
GCG001 does not support Field Control, GENI, GENA, or PCIM.
8.
Prior to V2.0.0, GCG001 did not support 76.8K and 38.4K baud rates. Beginning with
V2.0.0, all Genius baud rates are supported.
9.
Prior to V1.1.1, fault contact operation has changed. Whenever there is a fault on a single
channel of a Genius block, all fault contacts associated with that Genius block will
become active. All faults on that device must be cleared before any of the fault contacts
will de-energize. Beginning with V1.1.1, when there is a fault on a single channel, none of
the fault contacts will become active.
10. Genius faults routed through a GCG001 appear as PROFINET faults to the CPU. The same
fault routed through a Genius Bus Controller will present a different error code.
11. Prior to V1.1.1, when a Genius block encounters a circuit fault on one or more points or
channels, the GCG001 causes all of the input references associated with that block to
either hold last state or go to default values until such time as the fault is cleared. See the
Alarms discussion in section 4.1.4 for a work-around to this behavior. However, beginning
with V1.1.1, when a Genius block encounters a circuit fault on one or more points or
channels, the GCG will cause only the faulted input references to hold the last state or go
to default values. The other points or channels on the block will continue to operate
normally.

Module Installation
2.4.1 Install SD Card
The SD card slot is designed to support a Secure Digital (SD) non-volatile memory card in
standard capacity format. This optional card has two distinct uses: (1) backup storage of some
key PROFINET configuration data and (2) loading new GCG001 module firmware. Insert the SD
Card into its slot at the rear of the GCG001 before mounting the module, as shown in Figure 8.
Figure 8: Rear View of GCG001
When shipped from the factory, the SD card will have been pre-installed. It will have been
programmed with the then-current version of the firmware for the GCG001. In the event the
firmware on the SD card needs to be updated, see section 2.7. Note that the firmware
upgrade should be performed before mounting the module.
2.4.2 Mounting the GCG001
The GCG001 is designed to mounted in one of the following ways:
a. In the expansion slot of an RX3i Universal Backplane
b. Panel-mounted
In both cases, at least 75 mm (3 in.) must remain clear above and below the module to allow
for convection cooling. See section 1.5.1 for mounting details.
Once the module has been mounted, connect 24Vdc power via the connector on the
underside of the module, connect PROFINET via the RJ-45 connectors and the Genius bus via
twisted pair cable. Each connection is described in the following section.
Once all connections are in place, it will be necessary to configure PROFINET. This is also
discussed in the following sections.
Power Connection
The module requires a user-supplied
24Vdc (±10%) power source wired to the
removable screw-terminal block located
on the bottom of the module. Connector
pin-outs are identified on the module, as
indicated at right. The module draws
0.2 A maximum current.

Grounding
For proper operation, always connect the GCG001 ground terminal (see Figure 9) to earth
ground. The panel to which the GCG001 module is mounted, or the RX3i Universal Backplane
to which it is mounted, must have a safety ground connection to protective earth. This ground
wire must be at least 1.5 mm2 (16 AWG).
•
Connect the frame ground connection on the power plug to protective earth.
•
Terminate all ground wires at the same grounding point.
•
Make all ground wires as short as possible.
•
Where the grounding terminal contacts a painted enclosure panel, scrape the paint
away down to clean, bare metal to ensure good contact.
PROFINET Connection
Attach the PROFINET via one or both of the RJ-45 connectors provided (Port 1 & Port 2).
Various configurations are possible. Refer to the manual for the PROFINET controller used in
the application (GFK-2571 for the RX3i PROFINET Controller).

2.4.5 Fault Notifications
Powering up or down, or connecting/disconnecting the GCG001 from the controlling
PROFINET device will have effects specific to the particular controlling device. The discussion
below relates to using the RX3i PROFINET Controller as the controlling device.
Removing a GCG001 from the PROFINET network causes a Loss of Device fault for the GCG001
itself and all Genius devices connected via that GCG001.
Adding a GCG001 to the PROFINET network causes an Addition of Device fault for the GCG001
itself and all Genius devices connected via that GCG001.
Note that when a GCG001 is replaced by a successor GCG001, it is important to ensure that
the successor is configured for PROFINET in the same manner as its predecessor. The quickest
way to ensure this is to remove the SD Card from the original and insert it into the successor
GCG001.
2.5
Configuring the Genius Gateway to Operate with the RX3i CPU
1)
2)
3)
4)
Start the Machine Edition application, then open or create the project which will contain
the GCG001 module.
Configuring the rack, power supply, CPU and PROFINET Controller in the Project tab of the
Navigator
Follow the instructions in the RX3i PROFINET Controller System Manual GFK-2571 for
adding devices to the PROFINET IO Network. The GCG001 will be one of those devices.
Note that each IO Device connected to the GCG001 will be mapped per the RX3i
PROFINET Controller configuration.
2.6 Ethernet Port Connections
As noted earlier, PROFINET IO operates at 100Mbps or higher (full duplex). The GCG001 Genius
Gateway cannot operate at a data rate greater than 100Mbps. Thus, for normal operation, at
least one port must be operated at 100Mbps. Other devices operating at 10Mbps may co-exist
on that network, though this would not be typical.
Each Ethernet port on the GCG001 module (see Figure 3) operates independently, so devices
that operate at different speeds and/or duplex modes may be attached to the ports. Each port
automatically detects the attached cable and functions properly with either straight-through
or crossover cables.
Note:
GFK-2892B
The module operates only in auto-negotiate mode. All PROFINET devices
and switches that are connected to the module should be configured to
use auto-negotiation.
PACSystems RX3i Genius Communications Gateway User Manual

Chapter 2. Installation
2.6.1 RJ-45 Port Connections
The two RJ-45 ports on the GCG001 Genius Gateway can be used for PROFINET network
connections or for general Ethernet communications on a 10BaseT or 100BaseTX IEEE 802.3
network; 1000BaseTX is not supported. If the port is connected to an external switch, hub, or
repeater, up to 12 PROFINET nodes may be connected in a star wiring topology. Cables may
be up to 100 meters in length. Cables for 100BaseTX must be data grade Category 5 or better
unshielded twisted pair (UTP) or shielded twisted pair (STP). 10BaseT may be used for the
general Ethernet traffic, but not for PROFINET communications.
2.7 Firmware Updates
Refer to the rear view of the GCG001 module shown in Figure 8 (above). Whenever the
GCG001 firmware needs to be updated, remove the SD card from its slot at the rear of the
module, then install the SD Card in your PC and copy the new firmware to the SD Card. The ZIP
file containing the GCG001 firmware upgrade may be found on the GE Intelligent Platforms
Product Support web-site http://www.ge-ip.com/support. Unzip the file as shown in the
following figure.
Figure 13: GCG001 Firmware Upgrade ZIP File UnZIPped to SD Card
After the SD card has received an update of the GCG001 firmware, install the SD card in its
slot (see Figure 8). Note that the GCG001 must not be powered up while installing the SD Card.
Next, while holding down the Firmware Load Pushbutton (see Figure 8), apply power to the
module. This action causes the firmware to be copied from the SD Card to the GCG001
module itself. Continue holding the pushbutton until the OK LED turns amber, then release the
pushbutton. When the OK LED turns green, the firmware has been loaded. Cycle power on the
module and wait for the OK LED to turn green and steady. The module is then ready to be
properly mounted (see section 1.5.1) .

If you haven’t already done so, use Machine Edition to add a PROFINET IO-Controller
(IC695PNC001) to the Hardware Configuration of the target control system.
Select the PNC001 in the Navigator window, then browse the module and the Local Area
Network (LAN) configuration in the Inspector window, changing parameters as necessary
for your system. Note that the GCG001 will operate at 100Mbps, and will cause the
Network Speed to be auto-negotiated to this speed.
Right-click the PNC001, then select Add IO-Device to add the GCG001 as a connected
device on the PROFINET LAN. In the PROFINET Device Catalog dialog that subsequently
appears, select Have GSDML…, then browse to the location on your computer where the

default: the GCG (shown at slot 0 with its connected PNC) and the Gateway module itself
at slot 31. You may drag the gateway to slot 30, if desired.
Note that slot 0, normally used by the Genius HHM, is not really consumed by the GCG001.
The slot 0 indication for the GCG001 in the ME display should be ignored: it does not
impact the SBA assignments on the Genius Bus.
Note:
geniusgateway… is the default PROFINET Device Name that Machine Edition
gives to a GCG001 in the Hardware Configuration under a PNC001. This
Device Name must match that given to the module itself using the
PROFINET/DCP (Discovery and Configuration Protocol) tool (see below). If
there are multiple GCG001s on a PROFINET bus, each of the modules’ Device
Names must be unique. You can change it by selecting the device in the

with default assignments by Machine Edition. Double-click on each Genius device to
examine its properties, and change the I/O assignments where needed. In retrofits, for
example, it will likely be crucial to keep the same I/O assignments from the earlier
implementation so that the controller logic can operate with the same I/O allocations as
before. For each “location” on the Genius Bus, keep a note of the assigned I/O addresses.

System Overview
4.1.1 Communications
As shown in Figure 7, the Genius Gateway (GCG001) sits on a PROFINET network which is
connected to a PROFINET Controller (PNC001, for instance). The PROFINET Controller is
mounted in an RX3i rack. This aspect of the architecture allows the RX3i to interact with the
GCG001.
The PROFINET network to which the GCG001 is connected operates at 100Mbps only. The
Network Speed will be set through auto-negotiation if necessary. Details of PROFINET
communications may be found in the RX3i PROFINET Controller System Manual GFK-2571.
The GCG001 is also connected to a Genius Bus. It takes the place of a traditional Genius Bus
Controller, meaning it is capable of communicating with up to 31 other Genius Devices.
The Genius Bus operates as a Local Area Network (LAN) using twisted pair wiring. The wiring is
daisy-chained via the terminal strips on each device, as shown in Figure 10. The Genius LAN
will not be disrupted if power is lost on one its networked devices, since the wiring passes
through each device without requiring any active electronics to be present. The LAN cabling
must be terminated at one end of the cable run, using a resistor, the value of which matches
the impedance of the cable used in the application. See Figure 11 for terminating the bus at
the GCG001.
The Genius Bus is capable of operating at a number of different baud rates. All devices on the
bus must operate at the same agreed baud rate. For further details, refer to the Genius I/O
System and Communications User's Manual (GEK-90486). The default baud rate of the GCG001,
when shipped from the factory is 153.6 kBaud. This may be changed via the Machine Edition
configuration software.
In the event the baud rate needs to be changed, the following sequence is recommended:
1. Disconnect the GCG001 module from the Genius bus.
2. Change the baud rate to the new value on all Genius devices connected to that bus.
3. Cycle power to all Genius devices on which the baud rate has just been changed.
4. Use the HHM to verify the baud rate was successfully changed on each device.
5. Retry the above steps on any devices that failed to switch over to the new baud rate.
6. Using Machine Edition, configure the GCG001 module to operate at the new baud rate.
7. Reconnect the GCG001 to the Genius bus.
8. Note that the HHM will not work reliably on a mixed baud rate bus. Connect the HHM
directly to any device under these circumstances and disconnect that device from the
Genius bus temporarily. The baud rate of the HHM can be altered (via the HHM keyboard)
to match the configured baud rate of the device (which may be unknown). Once both the
HHM and target device are set to the same baud rate, the HHM can command the target
device to change to a new baud rate, which will take effect upon power cycling the
device. Remember to then change the baud rate of the HHM to the new baud rate.

4.1.2 Redundancy
Genius Hot Standby and Duplex Redundancy
Genius supports a number of different forms of redundancy, as described in the Genius I/O
System and Communications User's Manual - GEK-90486-1. Only Genius Hot Standby and
Duplex type redundancy (see GEK-90486-1 Chapter 8) is supported by the Genius Gateway
(GCG001).

Figure 19: Genius Hot Standby Redundancy
To support either Genius Hot Standby or Duplex type redundancy, two GCG001 modules are
present on the same physical Genius Bus, one at SBA #31 and the other at SBA #30, as shown
in Figure 19. This architecture is designed to withstand the loss of one GCG001 and the loss of
the PLC to which it is attached. The two GCG001 modules involved should therefore be
powered via independent 24Vdc power supplies. Alternately, a Genius Bus Controller may be
used at SBA #30 or #31.
In Genius Hot Standby, the I/O Blocks (both Analog and Digital) report all inputs to both
SBA#30 and #31, but use output data from SBA#30 only whenever SBA#31 becomes
unavailable. I/O controlled by the GR7 and GNIU also behave in this way.
In Genius Duplex Redundancy, Discrete Output Blocks vote on the output data received from
both SBA #30 and #31. A configuration parameter “Duplex Default State” must be configured
for each output point. This parameter determines how the output will behave in the event the
commanded output states received from SBA#30 and SBA#31 disagree. See GEK-90486-1
Chapter 8 for details. Whenever one of the controlling devices at SBA#30 or SBA#31 becomes
unavailable, the output will be controlled by the remaining device. Discrete outputs in the I/O
controlled by the GR7 and GNIU also behave in this way.
Note that the GCG001 does not support Genius Dual Bus Redundancy.

Ethernet Media Redundancy Protocol
PROFINET also supports redundancy in the form of Ethernet Media Redundancy Protocol
(MRP). As shown in Figure 20, this form of redundancy is designed to permit all devices on the
network to continue to communicate even though the network cable has been compromised
at one point. For details, see the RX3i PROFINET Controller System Manual (GFK-2571).

4.1.3 I/O Scans
As shown in Figure 7, there are a number of I/O Scans that effect how the input and output
devices on the Genius bus exchange data with the RSX3i PLC.
The RX3i scan reads input data from all the devices connected to it and active in its
configuration. It uses this input data to solve the control logic supplied for the application. At
the conclusion of the logic execution, the output data is ready for distribution and the output
portion of the RX3i scan takes place.
The PNC001 PROFINET Controller operates on its own cycle, receiving input data for all devices
connected to it, including the GCG001 Genius Gateway. It passes the input data to the RX3i
during the RX3i input scan. When the RX3i performs its output scan, the output data
configured to the PNC001 is transmitted by the PNC001 to the output devices on its network,
including the GCG001 Genius Gateway.
The GCG001 also operates on its own scan cycle. As the Genius bus token passes from one
SBA to the next, each device on the Genius Bus takes its turn to transmit its input data to the
GCG001, which then makes that input data available to the PNC001. The GCG001 also
consumes all the output data produced by the PNC001 and broadcasts that data to all the
output devices on the Genius bus whenever it receives the Genius Bus token.
All of the I/O scans described above are asynchronous and may vary depending on the path
through the RX3i logic, traffic on the PROFINET and traffic on the Genius Bus. Should I/O
update rates be a concern for the application, it would be prudent to perform a worst-case
analysis of the interacting scan cycles.

Chapter 4. System Operation
4.1.4 Alarms
Whenever an alarm condition occurs on a Genius Device, a background message (datagram)
is transmitted from the device to the GCG001. This transmission occurs while the alarmed
device has the Genius Bus token. Upon reception, the GCG001 formulates an Alarm message
to be passed to the PNC001, which in turn passes it to the RX3i CPU. The RX3i takes
appropriate action and notifies the operator per the logic in the application.
Alarms may be cleared programmatically using either the Clear Circuit Fault COMMREQ (see
Figure 25) or the Clear All Circuit Fault COMMREQ, or via the Genius Hand-Held Monitor (HHM).
Note that whenever the HHM is used to clear a circuit fault, the GCG001 will not be aware of
this condition, thus will not have cleared the corresponding fault. Under these conditions, the
“Diagnosis Disappears” Fault will not have been logged and any subsequent fault from the
same point will not be reported to the I/O Fault Table. Be sure to follow up any HHM clearing
of faults with a COMMREQ to clear the same fault(s) in order to eliminate the discrepancy
described here.
Typically, the field problem needs to be investigated and resolved before the alarm can be
successfully cleared. For the alarm to be cleared, the alarm condition must no longer be
present and the Genius device must receive a suitable background message instructing it to
clear the alarm notification. If the alarm condition is absent, the Genius device will cease to
exhibit the alarm indication (LEDs will operate normally again). If the alarm condition is still
present, a new alarm cycle will be initiated. See Sections 6.4.5, 6.4.6 and 6.4.4 for related
COMMREQ or Data_Init_Comm instructions. Refer to GEK-90486-1, Genius I/O System and
Communications User's Manual, for further details.
As mentioned in Section 1.8, the behavior of the input references associated with a Genius
Device that has indicated a fault, and which is interfaced to the CPU via the GCG001, is to
cause all inputs to either hold last state or to default to a known state (per GCG001
configuration parameters). If this behavior is problematic for your application, you can disable
fault reporting at the block, using the Genius Hand-Held Monitor (HHM) – see “Report Faults” in
GEK-90486-2. The downside is that your application will no longer be able to automatically
sense faults at the corresponding Genius Device. The LEDs on the Genius Device will continue
to indicate Fault conditions; however no datagram will be issued for each fault occurrence. An
intermediate solution is to periodically query each such device with a “Read Diagnostics”
datagram (Section 6.4.4) and parse the response in order to detect faulted circuits.

Status Data
The GGC001 produces a total of 64 bits (8 bytes) to supply status information to the controlling
PROFINET Controller. When ultimately controlled by an RX3i PLC, these reference bits consume
a total of 64 reference address bits in %I memory. The 64 bits consist of
•
32 bits related to the operation of the GCG001 itself referred to in PME as “Gateway
Status Data” and
•
32 bits related to the operation of the Genius bus which it controls – referred to as
“Genius Status Data” in PME.
Each bank of 32 bits may be assigned a different set of Input reference addresses in RX3i
memory.
For each bank of 32 status bits, a default beginning reference (the next available %I) for the
status bits is automatically assigned by Proficy Machine Edition (PME). These assignments may
be changed by clicking on the GCG001 and keying in different %I references.
5.1.1 PROFINET Status Data
For the Genius Gateway GCG001, the thirty-two bits in the PROFINET Status Data are
organized as follows, beginning at the first %I status reference assigned to this bank of 32:

5.3
Power-Up
The GCG001 powers up whenever 24Vdc power is properly applied via the connector shown
in Figure 9. During the power-up sequence, the GCG001 module runs diagnostics and
initializes its hardware components. When the necessary hardware components have been
initialized and tested, the module transitions to either normal operation or, if the firmware
load pushbutton is being depressed (see Figure 8), to the firmware update mode.
The firmware update mode is described in Section 2.7.
As the GCG001 transitions to normal operation, it attempts to establish communications with
the PROFINET Controller. Until communications have been established, normal operation
cannot begin.
Once the PROFINET Controller matches the configured PROFINET Device Name that of the
GCG001, PROFINET communications will begin. Any faults detected by the GCG001 prior to
this event will then be uploaded to the PROFINET Controller.
Normal system operation will begin once the RX3i is in RUN mode, PROFINET communications
are up and running and Genius Bus operations are also up and running.
5.3.1 Problems during Power-up
Certain conditions can prevent the module from powering up and becoming operational or

5.3.2 Transitioning from Firmware Update Mode to Operational Mode
As described in Section 2.7, the firmware load pushbutton (see Figure 8) must be depressed
during power-up in order to invoke the GCG001 firmware load mode. Whenever the GCG001
is powered up without this button being depressed, normal operating mode will commence
following power-up testing and initialization. Cycling power transitions the module from one
mode to the other, depending on the condition of the pushbutton.

5.4 Module Faults in the RX3i I/O Fault Tables
Module faults from the Genius Devices downstream from the GCG001 Genius Gateway are
passed to the PROFINET Controller and then to the PLC, where they are visible in the PLC’s I/O
Fault Table. For details on the operation of the RX3i Fault Table, see GFK-2222 Chapter 14.
The I/O fault table displays I/O faults such as circuit faults, address conflicts, forced circuits,
I/O module addition/loss faults and I/O bus faults. The contents of the I/O Fault Table entry are
as follows:
Entry
Description
Location
Identifies the location of the fault by bus and serial bus address (SBA).
CIRC No.
When applicable, identifies the specific faulted I/O point on the module
(enumerated 1-8 for an 8-point I/O block, for instance).
Variable
Name
If the fault is associated with a point that is mapped to an I/O variable, and the
variable is set to publish (either internal or external), the I/O fault table displays
the variable name. Unpublished I/O variables will not be displayed in this field.
Ref.
Address
If the fault is on a point that is mapped to a reference address, this field
identifies the I/O memory type and location (offset) that corresponds to the
point experiencing the fault. When a Genius device fault or local analog module
fault occurs, the reference address refers to the first point on the block where
the fault occurred.
Fault
Category
Specifies a general classification of the fault.
Fault Type
Consists of subcategories under certain fault categories. Set to zero when not
applicable to the category. See Section 5.4.1 below.
Date/Time
The date and time the fault was recorded by the CPU based on the RX3i CPU
clock.
Details
To view detailed information, click the fault entry.
Note: The Reference Address field displays 16-bits and %W memory has a 32-bit range.
Addresses in %W are displayed correctly for offsets in the 16-bit range (≤65,535). For %W
offsets greater than 16-bits, the I/O Fault Table displays a blank reference address.
As mentioned in Section 5.1, the GCG001 consumes two banks of 32 bits in %I as status bits
(a) for the GCG001 itself and (b) for the Genius bus devices it controls. These are not to be
confused with the entries in the I/O Fault Table.

5.4.2 Clearing the RX3i Fault Tables
Clearing the RX3i CPU’s I/O fault tables has no effect on the GCG001 or on the Genius Devices
downstream from it. This action merely clears the I/O Fault Table temporarily. Use the Genius
HHM or COMREQs in the PLC program to exercise I/O points that had previously exhibited
faults, and where the underlying field fault condition has already been corrected.

Chapter 6. COMMREQ/Data_Init_Comm Programming
Chapter 6 COMMREQ/Data_Init_Comm Programming
This chapter explains how to use Communication Requests (COMMREQs) to perform specific
tasks with Genius devices that are attached to a Gateway’s Genius bus. COMMREQs are
instructions in the RX3i ladder logic (see example in Figure 25). When a COMMREQ is executed
in ladder logic, communications traffic is directed to the indicated PROFINET Controller
module (IC695PNC001). The PROFINET Controller then communicates with the Genius
Gateway over PROFINET. The Genius Gateway subsequently sends the corresponding
background datagram to the Genius block Serial Bus Address (SBA) specified in the COMMREQ.
Status, and optionally some data, is returned from the Genius Block via the Genius Gateway to
the PROFINET Controller and then to the reference memory in the CPU module.
Data_Init_Comm is a ladder logic instruction that can be used to help set up a COMMREQ. It is
a more user-friendly instruction from the programmer’s perspective. It performs the same
functions as are described in this Chapter. An example is shown at Figure 26.
For additional information about Genius datagrams, see the Genius I/O System and
Communications Manual (GEK–90486–1), which describes Genius Datagrams in detail.
6.1
COMMREQs and Passwords
Level 1 and 2 controller passwords, which prevent write access, cannot be used in
applications that include COMMREQs. COMMREQs require write access to return their
completion status and requested data.
6.2 Programming for a COMMREQ Communication Request
In order to communicate via a COMMREQ with a Genius device attached via a Genius
Gateway module, the application program should perform the following actions.
1)
Supply the content of the COMMREQ communication. Ladder logic Block Moves,
Data_Init_Comm, or similar program instructions can be used to place the required
information into CPU memory. This content is called the Command Block.
CPU Memory

2)
Application Program
⇐
Edit content of COMMREQ
Clear status block. The program should set the status block to all zeroes (see
programming example Figure 25). Establishing this initial condition allows the program to
differentiate between the result of an earlier command and the currently–executing
COMMREQ command.

6.3
Check the status of the initiated COMMREQ task. COMMREQs should be executed
sequentially. The application program should check that the status of the previous
COMMREQ to the targeted PROFINET Controller is complete before sending it another one.
Failure to do this may result in improper operation of the PROFINET Controller.
COMMREQ Command Block Format
The first step in programming communications requests is to set up the contents of the
COMMREQ instruction. This can be done using Block Moves or similar program instructions, as
shown later in this chapter.

contents of each type of COMMREQ that may be sent to a PROFINET Controller for transfer to
a Genius Gateway.

Each field in the Command Block is described below:
Data Field
Explanation
“Data Block” Length
This is the amount of data from [address + 6] to the end of the Command Block. Each
type of COMMREQ command has a unique Data Block. See Section 6.4.
Wait/No Wait Flag
This must be set to zero, indicating No Wait.
The Status Pointer Memory Type and Status Pointer Offset defined below
combine to identify the location in CPU Memory of the Status Block associated
with this COMMREQ.
The Status Block is the location to which the COMMREQ will return its status. If one
of the bit–oriented memories (%I or %Q) is used as the Status Block location, those
bits can be monitored by the PLC program.
The Memory Type used is defined by [address + 2], as follows:

The offset into the Memory Type (above) is defined by [address + 3].
Status Pointer Offset
Note that the offset is 0–based. For example, if the Status Block were located at
%R099, memory type would be specified as 08 (for %R memory) and the offset
would be entered as 98 so as to point to %R099.
Note that if a bit–oriented memory (%I or %Q) is specified, a byte boundary must be
used for the offset.

Chapter 6. COMMREQ/Data_Init_Comm Programming
6.3.4 Mechanics of the COMMREQ Instruction
Once the content of the of the COMMREQ communication has been set up (in the COMMREQ
Command Block, as described above) the application program will need to activate the
corresponding COMMREQ instruction in order to initiate communications with the target
Genius Device (via the interconnected PROFINET Controller and Genius Gateway.
This section describes the mechanisms employed by the PLC logic to initiate and monitor the
COMMREQ instruction and its aftermath.
The COMMREQ instruction has four inputs and two outputs:
COMMREQ Inputs
COMMREQ
Input
Description
(enable)
Permissive logic that controls power flow to the COMMREQ function block.
IN
The memory location of the Command Block containing the specific COMMREQ
command information. The Command Block may be located in any word–
oriented area of memory (%P, %L, %R, %AI, %AQ, or %W).
SYSID
A two-byte hex value that gives the rack and slot location of the controlling
PROFINET Controller. The rack number must be zero and occupies the more
significant byte; the slot number in which the PROFINET Controller is located
occupies the less significant byte. Example:
TASK
Rack#
Slot#
Resulting SysID Hex Word Value
0
4
0004h
The task is 16#0084 for the IC695PNC001.
The task is 16#0002 0084 for the IC695CPE330.
Thus, the input specifies the conditions under which the COMMREQ is to be activated, and
specifies which PROFINET Controller and which Genius Gateway are targeted in this activity.
COMMREQ Outputs
COMMREQ Output
Description
OK
Indicates correct execution of the COMMREQ.
FT
Indicates a fault condition in COMMREQ execution.
The behavior of the COMMREQ Outputs is shown in the following truth table. Note that the OK
and FT outputs are never both true at the same time:
Enable
Error?
OK
FT
active
no
true
false
active
yes
false
true
not active
no execution
false
false
The COMMREQ passes power flow to its OK output unless:
50 Public
•
The specified module (in rack/slot) is not present.
•
The specified task is not valid for the target device.
•
The data length is zero.
PACSystems RX3i Genius Communications Gateway User Manual
GFK-2892B
Chapter 6. COMMREQ/Data_Init_Comm Programming
If any fault intrinsic to the conduct of the COMMREQ occurs, power flow passes to the FT
output instead.
If there are errors in the portion of the Command Block used specifically by the PROFINET
Controller or Genius Gateway (for example, the Device Number entered is incorrect), these
errors are reflected in the value returned in the Status Block location, not in the FT output.
COMMREQ Status Block
Once a COMMREQ command is completed, the PROFINET Controller writes any resulting data
into the area designated in the COMMREQ command and then sets the status to Complete (4).
However, if an error occurred during processing of the command, the status will be set to one
of the possible error values. Possible status values are listed below.
Note: Because COMMREQs require write access to return their status, level 1 and 2 Controller
passwords, which prevent write access, cannot be used with COMMREQs. If an illegal memory
type is specified, a fault will be generated.
If one of the bit–oriented memories (%I or %Q) is used as the status location, the designated
bits can be monitored. These bits correspond to the binary values listed below. For example, if
%I048 were selected as the beginning location, reference %I050 would be set to 1 each time
the COMMREQ completed successfully (corresponding to a value of 04 Hex).
Clearing the Status Block
COMMREQs to the target PROFINET Controller should be executed sequentially. Before
sending a COMMREQ to the PROFINET Controller, the application program should check the
status of any previous COMMREQ to that specific PROFINET Controller.
CPU Memory
Application Program
⇒
Status Block
Check completion of prior
COMMREQ
When the previous COMMREQ has completed, the user’s PLC program should set the Status
Block to zero. Establishing this initial condition allows the program to differentiate between
the result of an earlier command and the currently–executing command.
Contents of the Status Block
The Status Block consists of two words in PLC memory to which the PROFINET Controller
returns the status of the COMMREQ.
The lower word is used for general information about the execution of the COMMREQ:

6.3.5 Comparison: COMMREQ vs Data_Init_Comm
Data_Init_Comm is an instruction designed to help programmers set up COMMREQs.
Note that when programming a COMMREQ (Figure 25), the entry for Address+3 is one less
than the intended beginning address for the Status Block. When programming a
Data_Init_Comm (Figure 26), the entry for Address+3 is the actual intended memory location
for the beginning address for the Status Block.
This difference applies to all command blocks detailed in the following sections 6.4.1 - 6.4.16.
If the COMMREQ requires “n” for the Status Block location, the equivalent Data_Init_Comm will
require “n+1” in its Address+3.
Also note that the pop-up window presented in Data_Init_Comm (as shown in Figure 26),
allows the user to scroll through the parameters of the command. This is especially useful
where the command has multiple parameters.

COMMREQs supported by the Genius Gateway (GCG) are intended to perform the same
functions as their Genius Bus Controller (GBC) counterparts. However there are four significant
differences that break compatibility with the GBC COMMREQ Command Blocks:
1. GCG COMMREQs require a PROFINET Device Number at Address +7. This value is
required to identify which PROFINET /GCG combination is expected to process the
COMMREQ.
2. As a result of (1) above, any COMMREQ command parameters above Address +7 are
shifted with respect to the comparable GBC COMMREQ.
3. SYSID consists of the Rack/Slot location of the PROFINET Controller networked to the
targeted GCG rather than the Rack/Slot location of the GBC.
4. For COMMREQs that return data to CPU memory, e.g., Read Configuration, the Memory
Offset field has been expanded from one to two words. This allows the use of bulk
memory (%W) addresses greater than 65,535. When using offsets less than or equal to
65,535, the more significant offset word must be zero.
The following table shows all Genius COMMREQs and where they are supported.

6.4 COMMREQ Descriptions and Formats
6.4.1 COMMREQ #1: Pulse Test Command
The Pulse Test command causes the Genius Gateway to send a Pulse Test datagram.
Pulse testing is used to verify the operation of outputs on discrete Genius I/O blocks. It checks
whether the outputs will change state, and whether output circuits (wires, power sources,
loads) will start or stop current flow. Any circuit faults generated by pulse tests are reported
through the normal Report Fault message. Pulse testing is recommended for blocks that
seldom change state. It is typically done once per hour, or once per shift; it should not be done
more often than once per minute. Pulse testing provides assurance that when needed, an
output will operate correctly. Blocks that control outputs that change state frequently do not
need to be pulse tested. Pulse testing does not provide enough energy to activate
mechanical devices such as motor starters, replays, or solenoid valves, but may change the
state of a very small load. If appropriate, blocks can be configured (with the Hand-Held
Monitor or via a Write Configuration command) to ignore a Pulse Test datagram. Pulse
testing can also be done using a Hand-Held Monitor.

6.4.2 COMMREQ #2: Read Configuration Command
The Read Configuration command is used to request configuration data from device on the
Genius bus. It causes the Gateway to send a Read Configuration datagram to the indicated
device. After receiving the request, the block returns its configuration data to the Gateway in
16-byte increments. When the Gateway has received all the configuration data, it transfers
that complete data image to the PNC, which then transfers the data to the deposit memory
location specified in the Command Block. Because configuration data consists of both bittype and byte-type portions, it is best to place it in word memory, then move the bit-oriented
data to bit memory. Contents of Read Configuration Reply messages for I/O blocks are shown
in the Genius I/O System User’s Manual.
The VersaMax I/O Station (GNIU) does not support this COMMREQ. Use Machine Edition to
read the GNIU’s configuration data.

6.4.3 COMMREQ #3: Write Configuration Command
The Write Configuration command is used to send configuration data from the CPU to a
device on the Genius bus. The Gateway cannot write configuration data to another Genius
Gateway, to a Bus Interface module, or to a Hand-Held Monitor.
The PLC sends the intended configuration data from CPU memory to the PNC which then
transfers it to the Gateway. The Gateway schedules background Write Configuration
datagrams to the target Genius device. Once message transmission begins, the Gateway
sends the configuration data to the target Genius device, up to 16 bytes per bus scan. The
block does not use any of the new configuration data until it has all been received. No new
datagrams can be sent to the Genius device until the operation has been completed. When all
the data has been sent, the Gateway changes the status to 4 (Done), and this is replicated by
the PNC.
The length of the data sent with this command must exactly match the length specified for
the target Genius device. If the lengths are not equal, the Gateway returns a Syntax Error to
the COMMREQ Status Block.
GNIU does not support this COMMREQ. Use Machine Edition to download configuration data
to a GNIU.

6.4.4 COMMREQ #4: Read Diagnostics Command
Use this command to request diagnostic information from a Genius device or a bus interface
module. Diagnostics can be requested from any Genius device, even those configured not to
issue Report Fault messages. The diagnostic data returned by a block will indicate faults that
have occurred since power-up or since the last Clear Faults datagram. Current diagnostic
state can be found by issuing a Clear Faults command to the circuit(s) or channel(s) to clear
the fault history, then issuing a Read Diagnostics command.
This command causes the Genius Gateway to send a Read Diagnostics datagram to the
specified device. When the device receives this datagram, it returns a Read Diagnostics Reply
datagram. I/O blocks return data in message segments of up to 16 bytes per bus scan. The
content of the Read Diagnostics Reply message depends on the device being queried. The
first word of the reply will contain the length of the data that follows. Data is packed two
bytes per word. Message formats are shown in the Genius I/O System User’s Manual. When
all the data has been received, the Gateway transfers it to the PNC, which then transfers it to
the CPU.

6.4.7 COMMREQ #7: Assign Monitor Command
An Assigned Monitor is an additional bus interface module (usually in another PLC) that
monitors Genius I/O devices on the bus. Remote I/O Scanners and I/O blocks broadcast their
inputs to all devices on the bus. Therefore, any interface module on the bus will receive all
inputs sent by the blocks. However, blocks direct fault reports and configuration change
messages only to the bus interface module that sends them outputs. Blocks configured for
CPU Redundancy will automatically transmit two copies of any fault report or configuration
change message, directing them to Device Numbers 30 and 31.
The Assign Monitor command can be used to have Genius I/O devices send extra fault report
and configuration change messages to a monitoring bus interface module. Blocks would
send two copies of each fault report or configuration message in a non-redundant system.
Blocks in a redundant system would send three (two to the redundant bus interface modules,
and the third to the Assigned Monitor).
