Operating Notes
Replacing an IC693CPU351 with an IC693CPU363
This topic applies to users wishing to replace an IC693CPU351 module with an IC693CPU363. The CPU363,
functionally, is fully backward compatible with the CPU351. However, there are a few differences between these
modules to consider when making this replacement:
q Make sure you have a backup copy of the application program folder. When the CPU351 is removed from the
PLC, the application program in its RAM memory will be lost. You must have a current backup copy available to
store to the new CPU363. So before proceeding, ensure that your backup copy is up-to-date. If you do not have a
current backup copy, you can load the application program (include ladder logic, configuration, and registers) from
the PLC to your computer to create a current backup copy. As an extra margin of safety, you could also write the
application program from RAM memory to flash memory in the CPU351 before removing it from the PLC; this
would create a non-volatile copy of the program inside the CPU351. See your programming software’s user’s
manual or on-line help for instructions on writing to a CPU’s Flash memory.
q CPU351 will not receive feature upgrades beyond firmware release 9.11. Therefore, it does not have the features
that were added to the CPU363 in firmware release 10.00.
q The front panel serial port connectors, labeled Port 1 and Port 2, are oriented differently between the two modules
(they are rotated 180 degrees). This could impact CPU351 installations that use a right-angle connector to connect
to Port 2. In that case, the Port 2 cable may have to be re-routed or the connector may have to be reversed to allow
it to connect to the CPU363.
q
There is a difference in the location of the module shield ground tab. On the CPU351, it is on the bottom of the
module; on the CPU363, it is on the module’s front panel. Therefore, in substituting a CPU363, a new ground wire
(supplied with the module) will have to be installed if the wire from the CPU351 installation is too short.
q
The CPU351, in some installations, uses a ground shield bracket that fastens to the bottom of the module and to the
back of the enclosure or mounting panel. This shield ground bracket is not required on the CPU363 since this
module has superior noise immunity compared with the CPU351. Therefore, the shield ground bracket should be
removed when replacing a CPU351 with a CPU363. Details on CPU module shield grounding can be found in the
latest IC693 Installation and Hardware manual.
Before storing the application program folder from your programmer to the CPU363, it is necessary to perform the
following steps. (1) Record all configuration settings of the CPU351 (including SNP ID, if used, and communications
settings). If a printer is available, you can print the CPU settings. (2) On your configuration screen, replace the

CPU351 with the CPU363. (3) Finally, set the CPU363 configuration settings to match those of the CPU351 recorded
in step 1.
Also, don’t forget to update all backup folders and documentation to reflect this change.
Note: The top LED is labeled “SNP” on the CPU351 and “PS Port” on the CPU363. These both refer to the built-in
serial port that is accessed through the 15-pin D-shell connector on the PLC (main rack) power supply.
CPU363 Hardware Update (Version BD) to Enhance EMC Performance
This note only applies to the CPU363. A hardware update (from version AD to version BD) was made to the CPU363
to allow it to provide enhanced EMC performance. The update also allows faster backplane I/O data transfers to be
implemented in the future while still meeting all EMC requirements. This update is fully compatible with all existing
products. To realize the maximum EMC benefit, this version of the CPU must be used with the latest 90-30 baseplates.
Radiated emissions (EN 55011) of the 90-30 system are reduced with this update.
User Information Cleared when Upgrading Firmware
User information, consisting of program, configuration, CPU ID (used for SNP communications), and status tables in
RAM memory, will automatically be cleared if the CPU firmware in flash memory is changed. You will need to restore
these if upgrading firmware. A recommended procedure is to first back up your user information from RAM memory
to Flash memory. Then write your new firmware to Flash memory (firmware is stored in a different location in Flash
memory than that used for storing user information such as program, configuration, etc.). Finally, write your user
information back out of Flash into RAM memory. As an alternative, your user information (program, configuration,
etc.) can be restored from a computer-based backup program folder using your PLC programming software. The SNP
ID, if required, must be set separately using the programming software or the Hand-Held Programmer (HHP).
Firmware Upgrade Hardware Requirements
The Model 35x and 36x CPUs’ operating firmware is stored in FLASH memory. The firmware upgrade is provided on a
floppy disk and must be serially downloaded from a Personal Computer. An IBM AT personal computer or better PC
with a minimum 640K of RAM, one 3.5” floppy drive, MS-DOS version 3.3 or later (or Windows 95 or later), a hard
drive, and one RS-232 serial port is required. In addition, a serial cable is required. The following serial cable kit is
available:
IC690ACC901 Mini Converter Kit with cable (RS-232/RS-485).
Changing Firmware to an Earlier Version
If you have a CPU352 with firmware version 9.00 or later, and you want to install a pre-9.00 version of firmware, a
special upgrade disk must be obtained from your distributor. Do not attempt to use a firmware version 8.10 or earlier
upgrade disk on a CPU that contains firmware version 9.00 or later. Note that pre-9.00 firmware versions do not
support the CPU363.

Option Module Revision Requirements
•
Ethernet Interface Module Compatibility. All IC693 Ethernet Interface (IC693CMM321) modules used with
these CPUs should be updated to IC693CMM321 firmware release 1.10 or later. This is also a requirement of the
TCP/IP Ethernet version of the MS-DOS programming software. During a Run Mode Store (Alt + S hot key
combination) of a large program block (greater than 14 kilobytes), the Ethernet module may time out, causing
communications to fail. Changing the Communications Window to Run-to-Completion mode, or storing the
program in Stop mode, will allow the store to take place successfully.
•
FBC Compatibility. FBC version 3 or later is required for these CPUs.
•
GCM Compatibility. Fab board R08 or later of the IC693CMM301 should be used with the CPU352.
Writing Flash Using a Serial Programmer
When writing very large programs to flash memory, it may be necessary to increase the Windows PLC programming
software request timeout value to avoid receiving a request timeout message. An upper bound of 25 seconds is typically
satisfactory.
Storing Large Configurations
The IC693 PLC will normally support 20 DSM314 modules in a system. This number may be reduced by other
modules in the system, such as APM and GBC modules. It may also be further reduced if using datagrams that read the
reference or fault tables. If the configuration and user program are stored at the same time, the presence of either C
blocks within the LD program, or a C logic program may also affect the number of DSM314 modules that may be
included in a system. If the store fails, it may be possible to work around this problem by first storing the logic program
and then storing the configuration on a separate store request. The number of modules supported may be further
reduced by the size of CPU user memory.
No Model Number Checking with DOS-based programmer
The No Model Number Checking feature does not support storing a 311, 313, 321, 323 or 331 configuration to a
Release 9.0 or later CPU.
Minimum Sweep Time for these CPUs Reduced in Release 10.50
The minimum sweep time (while in run mode) for Release 10.50 of these CPUs has been reduced about 1 ms from that
of Release 10.00
Simultaneous Load and Store
When operating with multiple programmers attached, if a store operation is initiated by one programmer, while a load
operation is already in progress, the load request will fail.
Transition Tables are not cleared when the reference tables are cleared.
The transition tables are not cleared upon clearing the reference tables through the programmer.

Problem Resolved by this Hardware Upgrade
Fatal Fault Sometimes Occurs when Powering up from Flash
A fatal sequence store fault may be generated when the PLC is configured to read the user program from flash upon
power up in the case where the CPU has been without power for 30 minutes or more. The current version of this
module, IC693CPU352-EK, which incorporates a hardware upgrade, corrects this problem.
Problems Resolved in Firmware Release 10.50
Rotate Right and Rotate Left functions do not handle error condition correctly
In releases prior to 10.50, the Rotate Right and Rotate Left functions do not correctly handle rotating a string with a
rotation request greater than 16 times the length (in words) of the array. These functions should only be used with the
rotation request less than 16 times the length (in words) of the array. These function blocks will now treat any request
to rotate more than the length of the array as a copy request.
Time of Day clock at powerup may not operate
In releases prior to 10.50, this would result in a Fatal PLC CPU HW FAULT being logged. The supercap had to be
shorted to restore the board to normal operation.
Error when run-mode storing, loading, or verifying exactly 50 blocks in run mode.
In releases prior to 10.50, if a programmer attempts to verify with a CPU containing exactly 50 subroutines (not
including main), the operation will fail. If the programmer attempts to load from a CPU containing exactly 50
subroutines, the operation may fail, or the programmer may appear to succeed, but incorrectly load the data. If an
attempt to do a run-mode store on a CPU with exactly 50 subroutines is attempted, the operation will fail.
Fatal Fault retry does not work correctly for some faults.
In releases prior to 10.50, the fatal fault retry feature will not work correctly for faults which reoccur on powerup (such
as system configuration mismatch). The CPU will go into a loop where it consistently powers up, experiences the fault
and retries. This will continue indefinitely.

Restrictions and Open Issues
Timing Issue with ALG220/221 Modules May Result in Incorrect %AI Values Read by CPU
A problem was found with the IC693ALG220/221 where the actual %AI values reported by the card may exhibit erratic
behavior (catalog module revisions F and earlier may show this problem; revision G has fixed this problem). Certain
current or voltage levels within the input range applied to the card could cause the %AI values to report incorrectly.
The problem stems from the use of particular optocouplers, which may exhibit timing issues with these CPU35x/36x
modules. (Note: CPUs 341, 331, 321, 313, and 311 have not exhibited this timing problem when reading %AI values.)
The IC693 PLC will generate a fatal fault if a ladder containing DOIO function block calls to a smart
module is repeatedly placed in RUN then STOP mode
A problem was found with the CPU where a ladder containing a call to a DOIO function block would cause the PLC to
run out of system memory. This is caused when the PLC transitions to run mode and back to stop mode several times.
If the configuration is stored, the system memory will be freed, and the PLC will resume normal operation.
IC693 PLC CPU may Develop Fatal Fault During Store of Folders with Large Configurations
The IC693 PLC CPU may generate a fatal fault during a store of a folder with an especially large configuration. This
may be made worse by storing a program and configuration at the same time, or by having datagrams from a
programmer present during the store.
PID Integral Contribution
The PID Integral Contribution is not calculated correctly with an integral rate of 0 or 1.
A CPU360 Configuration Stored to CPU352 may Cause Fatal Fault
If a CPU360 configuration file is stored to a CPU352, the PLC may generate a fatal fault when transitioning to run
mode.
Reading from an Invalid Flash Part may Cause a Watch Dog Timeout
If a corrupted flash part is read, the Watch Dog Timer on the PLC may be triggered. This can be fixed by completing a
valid flash store.
Fatal Fault Occurs when Configuring a Module with the HHP Following a Maximum Size PLC Store
The IC693 PLC CPU may generate a fatal fault while attempting to configure a module with the Hand-Held
Programmer following a maximum size store to the PLC.
Firmware Update Fail Following Power-up with Clear M/T and a Write to Flash
Firmware update may fail following a power-up with Clear M/T pressed on the HHP and a write to flash. Cycling
power on the PLC will enable the upgrade to proceed.
