INTRODUCTION
This manual contains a general description of the Series Six programmable controller, installation instructions and data for troubleshooting if system malfunctions should occur. For a detailed explanation
of programming the Series Six, refer to the PROGRAMMING MANUAL FOR SERIES SIX PROGRAMMABLE CONTROLLERS, GEK-25362.
GENERAL OVERVIEW
The Series Six is a family of programmable controllers. Programmable controllers are general purpose
microprocessor controls specifically designed for operation in harsh industrial environments. A programmable controller accepts data from input devices (switches, sensors, etc.), performs logical decisions determined by a program stored in memory, and provides output control for machines or
processes. Figure 1 is a basic block diagram of the Series Six programmable controller.

General Description of the Series Six
Introduction
Programs are entered, edited, and monitored with the Program Development Terminal (PDT). Input data
is evaluated, logic decisions are made based on the stored program, and appropriate outputs are driven
by the Central Processing Unit (CPU). The Input/Output (I/O) modules convert electrical signals to logic
levels for processing by the CPU and convert CPU signals to the proper electrical levels for control of
user devices. The I/O modules also provide isolation for signals in the CPU from electrical noise in the
typical factory environment.
The basic programming language used by the Series Six is

BASIC SYSTEM DESCRIPTION
The Series Six consists of 3 models which are the Model 60, Model 600 and Model 6000. The same
Input/Output (I/O) system and Program Development Terminal are used by all 3 of the Series Six models.
The basic components of the Series Six are as follows:
1.
Program Development Terminal (PDT)- Allows user programs to be entered into the system. May
be used on-line or off-line.
2.
Central Processing Unit (CPU) - Stores user programs and interfaces to input/output modules for
solving logic and performing desired functions. Contains various control modules.
3.
Input/Output modules (I/O) - Converts user signals to low-level voltages for processing by CPU and
converts CPU signals to proper level for control of user devices. Also provides optical isolation
from electrical noise.
4.
I/O Devices - User-provided
solenoids, etc.
devices
such
as
switches,
pushbuttons,
relays,
motor
starters,
By virtue of the family concept a number of common modules may be interchanged among the models.
The models differ with respect to memory size, register capacity, I/O capacity, and options available. An
important advantage of the family concept is that the spare parts inventory, training requirements, and
documentation needs for large multiple model installations are held to a minimum. Figure 2 is the Series
Six Model 60, Model 600, Model 6000 and the Program Development Terminal.

MODELS
Model 6000 is the top of the line and has the greatest capacity for control, processing functions and options available. This is followed in order of capacity by the Models 600 and 60. The Models 60 and 600
are upward compatible which means that any Model 60 program can run on the Model 600 or 6000
and any Model 600 program can run on the Model 6000.
OPTIONAL DEVICES
Optional devices are available for use with all 3 Models of the Series Six. These optional devices are the
Data Processor Unit, and a Portable tape loader.
The Series Six Data Processor is a microprocessor-based unit designed to perform functions which are
too time consuming or require too much memory for the CPU to perform efficiently. For a detailed description of the Data Processor, see Section 3.
PORTABLE TAPE UNIT
A Portable Tape Unit is available which is interfaced to the CPU through the Communication Control
module. This is a portable unit which allows fast loading of programs into the CPU. The tape unit operates at a selectable baud rate and allows a 32K x 16-bit program to be loaded in less than three minutes.
Tape Unit is highly reliable and is compatible with the tape unit in the Program DevelThe Portable
opment Terminal.

General Description of the Series Six
Introduction
GEK-25361A
The Series Six uses the familiar ladder diagram approach. The instruction set contains the commonly
used functions such as open and closed contacts, relay coils, timers, counters, latches, and one-shots.
Additional instruction capability is provided in mnemonic form.
The user’s ladder diagram program is stored in the logic memory of the CPU. Instructions in the program
may reference the status table, or register memory.
The status table is composed of the input and output tables. In mnemonic instructions that reference
the status table, such as Ri/O (Move Register to I/O table), the desired table (input or output) must be
specified.
A basic or extended instruction set is offered for programming the Series Six CPU’s, For detailed programming information, refer to the Series Six Programming Manual, GEK-25362.
PROGRAM DEVELOPMENT TERMINAL
The Program Development Terminal (PDT) used with the Series Six family of programmable controllers
is a transportable microprocessor-based CRT terminal. The terminal gives the user the ability to create,
edit, and store ladder diagrams. See Figure 6.
Programs can be created and entered directly into the CPU or they can be created and stored on tape
without the necessity of having the PDT connected to the CPU. With the PDT connected to the CPU,
the user can load programs, monitor program operation, start and stop the CPU, and control operation
of the system.
A convenient feature of the Series Six Program Development Terminal is that it may be plugged into an
I/O rack that is distant from the CPU, thereby allowing the user to be near the device being controlled.

SECTION 2
Hardware Description of
the Central Processing Unit
This section contains a hardware description of the Central Processing Unit for the Series Six programmable controllers.
Since the CPU for the Model 6000 and 600 are functionally identical, the description of the CPU given
for the 6000 applies with some exceptions to the 600. These exceptions are described under “Model
600 CPU”, page l-35. The differences in the Model 60 are described on page 1-37.
The primary purpose of the CPU is to perform all logic solving and decision making operations as
defined by the user’s program that has been entered into the programmable controller. In addition the
CPU contains various memory circuitry for storing the user’s program, for storing various tables necessary for bit status and data manipulation, and for storing the firmware (program instructions) that tells
the programmable controller how to perform its operations.
The Series Six Programmable Controller performs its function by continually scanning the various logic
circuits in the CPU. Scanning is a technique whereby various logic bits are checked for their current
state and certain decisions are made based on those states. Lines of logic are examined and solved one
at a time in numerical sequence (from the first to the last). The scan time is variable dependent on the
program.
The scan determines what the states of the I/O’s should be by examining the user’s program. The CPU
then drives the appropriate outputs as determined by the program. Figure 7 illustrates the sequence of
the scanning technique used by the Series Six, detailing the I/O scan.
Each Model of the Series Six CPU is mounted in a universal rack which is a standard 19 inch rack or
panel mount that is described on page l-6.

Options for Model 6000 CPU
The optional Auxiliary I/O module which interfaces the CPU to the Series Six Auxiliary l/O System
allows an additional 1000 inputs and 1000 outputs. Another option offered with the Model 6000 is the
Data Processor. The Data Processor is a microprocessor-based unit capable of performing functions
which are too time consuming or require too much memory for the CPU to perform efficiently.
CPU POWER SUPPLY
The Series Six CPU power supply is self-contained on one assembly.
AC power input is made through connection to a terminal board located on the front panel, 115 or
230V AC input voltage may be used as required.
Three voltages are provided: +5V DC, + 12V DC, and -12V DC. In addition, system control signals are
generated by the power supply.
Input power is turned on or off with a circuit breaker located on the front panel. An LED provides visual
indication that the power supply is turned on and all operating DC voltages are within tolerance.
Terminal strips on the front panel also provide 2 sets of alarm contacts and connection for an external
battery for use as an external backup for CMOS RAM memory.
Two key switches are on the front panel, a CPU Run/Stop switch and a Memory Protect switch.
The terminal strips have a cover supplied as a safety precaution.

LOGIC CONTROL
The Logic Control module contains circuitry for generation of signals, which provide control to all of the
other CPU modules. The circuitry includes an Am2910 microprogram controller and 512 or 2048
words by eighty-eight bit PROMS for microprogram storage. Figure 10 is a view of the Logic Control
module showing the faceplate and the Logic Control circuitry. Two versions of the Logic Control
module are available, the difference being the program entered into them. One (Part Number
IC600CB501A) is programmed for the Basic Functions, the other (Part Number lC600CB502A) is programmed for the Extended Functions. A connector on the bottom front edge of the module allows interfacing to the Arithmetic Control Module. The ribbon cable connecting the two modules must be in place
for proper system operation.
NOTE
Attempting to operate the system without the ribbon cable connected between an Arithmetic Control module and a Logic Control module will
cause the CPU to operate unpredictably.

CONTROL
The Arithmetic Control (See Figure 11) module contains circuitry which performs arithmetic and logical
operations on data and address lines. The time base for the timer functions in the CPU are derived from
a 3.2 MHz clock on this module.
The Series Six CPU has 4 hardware registers located on the Arithmetic Control board. The continuity
and buffer registers are each one bit wide. The accumulate and preset registers are sixteen bits wide.
The registers are operated on internally by the CPU and are not accessible by the user.
The logic for performing these operations is a sixteen-bit Arithmetic Logic Unit. The ALU is made up of
4 Am2903 bit slice microprocessors.
The Am2903 is a 4-bit expandable bipolar microprocessor slice. The Am2903 is especially useful in
arithmetic oriented processors, and in addition, provides a special set of instructions which eases the
implementation of multiplication, division, and other time consuming operations.
The faceplate has 2 LED indicators: Run and Check. The executive routine in the sweep execution sequence contains a self-test routine which is executed once per sweep. If several conditions are met
(normal) the CHECK LED remains on. If the CPU fails the test, if the clock stops, or if anything interrupts
the sweep for more than 200 milliseconds the LED goes out. The 200 milliseconds is generated by a retriggerable one-shot and is the watchdog timer for the Series Six.
The RUN light when on indicates that the CPU execution sequence is proceeding normally, the self-test
has passed and the I/O scan is completed at least once every 200 milliseconds.
NOTE
The watchdog timer interval is 200 msec t 50 msec.

MEMORY
The type of memory as well as the internal memory, register memory, and logic memory modules are described below. Also described are memory protection, visual status of backup battery, memory addressing and memory allocations.
CMOS
CMOS-RAM is an integrated circuit memory that is desirable in that it uses very low power. CMOS-RAM
memory is available in either 2K, 4K or 8K words of memory. Since CMOS-RAM memory is volatile
(loses contents of memory with no power) a Lithium-Manganese Dioxide battery located on the
memory module protects the memory contents when power fails or is turned off. This battery provides
approximately six months of data protection. When power is applied to the CPU, an LED indicator lights
if the battery condition is normal. The normal, fully-charged voltage of a Lithium battery is 2.95V @
1.75 amp-hours. Lithium batteries are not rechargeable. The battery indicator LED provides 3 states. If
the battery voltage is normal, the LED is on. If the battery voltage is low (between 2.55V and 2.75V), the
LED flashes. The CPU will run if the battery voltage gets low. If the CPU stops, it can be restarted. If the
battery voltage drops below 2.55V, the LED turns off. If the CPU is stopped it cannot be restarted.
INTERNAL
MEMORY
The Internal Memory Module Logic is made up of various tables stored in CMOS-RAM with Lithium battery back-up. The RAM’s are 256 x 8-bit words each.
The following tables are stored in the Internal Memory module.
TABLE
1-24
FUNCTION
Status
Stores bits which represent the status (ON or OFF) of all of the 1000 inputs
and 1000 outputs available on the I/O main chain.
Override
The status of overridden input or output bits is stored here. An overridden
bit in the status table will not be changed when the CPU reads inputs or
solves outputs.
Transition
The logic state of the inputs to counters and one-shots is stored in this
table.

Memory Addressing and Memory Map Allocation
The CPU must be told how much logic memory is to be used for proper addressing and memory map
allocation. This function is performed by a group of 8 DIP (Dual-In-line-Package) switches located on
the Internal Memory module.
There are 4 slots available for Logic Memory modules in a Model 6000. Each slot has 2 DIP switches
(which correspond to these slots) located on this module. In the CPU, the slot to the left of the Register
Memory is slot A, the next one is slot B, etc. (for the purpose of memory size addressing).
A switch is closed for each 2K of memory in each board slot. Each CPU must have the DIP switches set
for the proper memory configuration. If memory is added to a system, the switches will have to be
reconfigured to the proper settings. Chapter 2, Section 1 of the Installation and Maintenance Manual,
GEK-25361A will further detail the switch settings.

REGISTER
MEMORY
The Register Memory module is comprised of a Mother board which contains memory parity generation and checking functions and a Daughter board that contains 1024 sixteen-bit registers (storage
locations) in CMOS-RAM with Lithium battery back-up. The registers are used for bit manipulation by
certain mnemonic functions. The lower 128 words of the Register Memory are used as a storage tocation for the Auxiliary I/O status table. Data bus transfer logic is also generated on this board.
The Register Memory module has 2 LED indicators which are viewed through the lens on the faceplate.
One of the LED’s is the status indicator (BATTERY) for the Lithium back-up battery. The other LED
(PARITY) indicates a table or register memory parity error. If a table memory parity error is detected, a
bit is set in an error register and the LED goes out. Figure 14 is a photograph of the Register Memory
module showing its circuitry and the faceplate.

Relatively small amounts of excess charge can cause very intense electrostatic fields in metal-oxide-semiconductor (MOS) devices, damaging
their gate structure. When the board covers are removed, avoid handling
the circuit board under conditions favoring the build-up of static
electricity. Failure to observe this CAUTION could result in the destruction of the CMOS-RAM devices in this module.
With the board covers in place, it is unlikely that normal handling of this
module will cause any damage.
The board covers provided with each Logic Memory module are a non-conductive material. These
boards are provided for protection of the CMOS-RAM devices.
Do not allow the bottom of the module to come into contact with a conductive (metal} surface when the board covers are removed. Failure to observe this CAUTION could result in the discharge of the nonrechargeable Lithium battery and the loss of memory contents.

A two-position key switch (located on the power supply) is provided for protecting logic and override
memory that has been written into. The two positions are MEMORY PROTECT and WRITE. In the WRITE
position, the user can write into memory, and programs can be entered or changed. In the MEMORY
PROTECT position, memory cannot be written into, thereby protecting any user program that has been
previously entered. Once a program has been entered it is advisable to switch the key to the MEMORY
PROTECT position.

Visual Status of Backup Battery
There is one LED indicator viewed through the faceplate window on each memory module. This indicator BATTERY is a visual status of the Lithium backup battery located on each module. Battery status is
described below.
STATUS
DESCRIPTION
ON
Lithium battery is normal. Memory contents are saved on power loss.
FLASHING
Battery low: CPU continues running and will restart if stopped. The battery
should be replaced before it fails.
OFF
Battery Failed (Voltage too low or no voltage). CPU continues running, will
not restart if stopped. Memory contents will be lost if power is turned off or
lost. Battery should be replaced.
AUXILIARY
I/O
The Auxiliary 1/O (Figure 18) module contains circuitry for interfacing an Auxiliary l/O chain to the CPU
bus in a Model 6000 CPU. This module allows a second I/O system with the same structural features as
the primary I/O system to be connected to the CPU. The Auxiliary I/O system is functionally identical to
the primary I/O system except that the Auxiliary inputs and outputs cannot be overridden. The Auxiliary
I/O system allows an additional 1000 inputs and 1000 outputs, thereby allowing the Model 6000 a
total of 4000 I/O points. The auxiliary I/O status tables are physically stored in registers 1 to 128. Registers 1 to 64 are the auxiliary output tables and registers 65 to 128 are the auxiliary input tables.
The Extended CPU instruction set must be present in order to access the Auxiliary chain I/O modules;
The Auxiliary I/O module interfaces internally to the I/O Control module for control signals.
There is one 37-pin connector located on the bottom front edge of the Auxiliary l/O module. This
connector provides a physical connection to the Auxiliary I/O chain.

CONTROL
The Communications Control module, which is an option with any model of the Series Six provides a
serial interface to the CPU. A Portable Tape Unit and a high speed data highway can communicate with
the CPU through the Communications Control module. This interface allows an external intelligent
device such as a computer to communicate with a Series Six Programmable Controller.
Two connectors are provided for connection to the module. The connectors are mounted at the bottom
of the module. The upper connector is a 25-pin D-type and is configured to accept a device using either
an RS-232, RS-422 or 20mA current loop interface. The baud rate of the low speed port is jumper
selectable (See Chapter 2, Installation).
The lower connector is a 9-pin D-type and can accept a device using either an RS-232 or an RS-422
interface. The baud rate of the high speed port is the same speed as the low speed port.

MODEL 600 CPU
The Model 600 CPU is functionally identical to the Model 6000, however, the Logic Memory and I/O
capacity is not as great. An important feature is that a Data Processor Unit can be contained in the same
rack.
Logic Memory is allocated one slot to contain one Logic Memory module, thereby allowing the CPU user
program capacity in 16-bit words to be 2K, 4K, or 8K of CMOS-RAM. The Logic Memory programming
switches on the Internal Memory module must be programmed for slot A.
Parity error detection is standard as on the Model 6000. The register memory is standard which allows
1024 sixteen-bit registers.
The optional Auxiliary l/O module cannot be used on the Model 600 CPU. The I/O Control module is
identical to the I/O Control module used in the Model 6000 CPU. Therefore the I/O system can have up
to 1000 inputs and 1000 outputs.
Since only one Logic Memory module can be used and the Auxiliary I/O module is not available as an
option for the Model 600, 4 slots are available for the optional Data Processor. The Model 600 CPU is
the only model of the Series Six family that allows the Data Processor option to be installed in the CPU
rack. The Data Processor option for the Models 6000 and 60 is mounted in its own universal rack with
power supply. The Data Processor option is more fully described in Section 7. If data storage requirements exceed the capacity of the Data Storage module, the Model 600 CPU should be interfaced to a
Data Processor in its own rack.
The Communications Control module is available as an option which allows the CPU to connect to an
external Minicartridge Tape Unit and the Data Highway.

By combining the 3 memories into one module, and with no Auxiliary I/O module offered, the Model 60
has 6 slots available for I/O modules within the CPU rack. For applications requiring no more than 192
I/O points the Model 60 is a complete system within one rack.
The I/O Control module connects the Model 60 CPU to an I/O system having a maximum of 256 inputs
and 256 outputs (2K Model) or 1000 inputs and 1000 outputs (4K Model). The 6 I/O modules which
can be located in the CPU rack will allow 192 inputs or 192 outputs or a combination of inputs and outputs up to a total of 192. The I/O modules selected must not exceed 100 units of load (See Chapter 2
for details). If more than 6 I/O modules or 192 l/O points are required for a particular application, additional I/O racks must be used.
The optional Communications Control module is offered with the Model 60. This allows the Model 60
to be interfaced to the Minicartridge Tape Unit and the Data Highway.
If the Data Processor option is used with the Model 60 it is located in a separate rack with its own
power supply. The Data Processor Option will connect by cable to a port (connector) on the I/O Control
module.
NOTE
In order for the Model 60 to function properly using only the I/O modules
contained within its rack, a terminator plug (supplied with each CPU)
must be connected to the I/O connector (lower connector) on the I/O
Control module.

INPUT/OUTPUT
SYSTEM
This section describes the Input/Output (l/O) system used by the Series Six family of programmable
controllers. The l/O system is common to all models of the Series Six family. l/O racks and modules can
be interchanged between systems using the Model 60, Model 600 or the Model 6000. As indicated in
Table 1, Section 1, the maximum number of I/O points available with the Models 6000, 600, and 60 respectively are 4000, 2000 and 2000. The Model 60 is the only model in the Series Six family that accommodates both the CPU and l/O modules in the same rack. A maximum of 6 l/O modules (192 I/O
points maximum) can be self-contained in the Model 60. Modules, according to type, are available that
will allow 4,6,8 or 32 Inputs or Outputs.
The I/O rack is the same universal rack as the one used with the Series Six CPU’s and is described in
Section 1 of this chapter.
I/O RACK
All l/O modules are housed in an I/O rack (See Figure 26). An I/O rack uses the same mechanical packaging as a CPU or DPU and can be mounted in a standard 19 inch (483 mm) rack or panel. Each rack contains a power supply, either standard or high-capacity depending on the I/O load to be contained in the
rack. In addition to the power supply, each rack has slots for eleven l/O modules.

I/O POINT ADDRESSING
Each I/O slot (except the left-most slot) has a seven segment DIP switch physically located on the backplane adjacent to each slot (See Figure 27). These switches are used to assign a unique address for
each Input or Output module placed in that slot. An Input or Output module can be placed in any of the
ten addressable slots. Programming of these switches is accomplished by setting each position of a DIP
switch either to the open or closed position. To set a switch to the OPEN position, depress the switch to
the left. Each DIP switch setting allows the selection of a starting I/O point number and either 8, 16, or
32 consecutive I/O points. The number of I/O points is determined by the type of l/O module. Figure 28
is a chart indicating the DIP switch settings for 8 circuit modules Modules requiring selection of more
than eight I/O points have a similar chart showing the switch settings included in the module descriptions later in this section. It should be noted that each address can be used two times, once for an input
module and once for an Output module.

I/O RACK INTERCONNECTION
i/O racks are interconnected in a system by using combinations of I/O Receivers, I/O Transmitters,
Remote I/O Drivers or Remote I/O Receivers depending on the grouping and location of the racks. Racks
are grouped together in either a CPU station, a Local l/O station or a Remote i/O station depending on
their physical location and distance from the CPU and from other l/O racks. Each of the i/O communication modules and stations are described in detail later in this section.
Each l/O rack requires a receiver which isolates the I/O data cable from the backplane bus and performs
error checking. A receiver does not require an address and is normally inserted in the left slot; however,
a receiver can be placed in any I/O slot. Two connectors are mounted on each receiver, the top one is for
incoming data and the bottom one is used to forward data to a receiver in the next rack of an l/O chain.
This method of linking i/O racks together in a station is referred to as a daisy chain. A group of i/O racks
in a daisy chain can have no more than 50 feet (15 meters) separating the first rack from the last and
there can be a maximum of ten l/O racks in the chain.
The last rack in a daisy chain requires termination of the I/O signals. The bottom connector on the last
i/O Receiver is not used for I/O signal connection, thereby allowing a PDT to be connected to the last
rack in a CPU station or a Local i/O station.
I/O racks separated by no more than 500 feet (150 meters) can be connected by use of an I/O
Transmitter, through a 16 pair cable to an I/O Receiver in the first I/O rack of a chain of no more than
ten racks. A total of four Local I/O stations can be connected in this manner; however, the last l/O Receiver can be no more than 2000 cable feet (600 meters) from the originating CPU.
A remote I/O system allows I/O racks to be located up to ‘lO,OOO feet (3 km) from any rack in a CPU station or a Local I/O station by direct cable connection. A Remote I/O Driver placed in a slot in a CPU station or Local station is connected through a two twisted pair serial cable to a Remote i/O Receiver
placed in the left slot of a remote station. Any number of Remote I/O Drivers and Remote i/O Receivers
can be used in a system. Up to 248 inputs and 248 outputs can be used in a Remote I/O station.
Additionally a CPU station or Local station can be connected to a remote station at distances greater
than 10,000 feet (3 Km) by using a communications link consisting of RS-232 modems.

I/O POWER SUPPLY
The I/O power supply module will accept either 1 15V AC or 230V AC (jumper selectable). The AC input
voltage is routed through a terminal block on the front panel to a circuit breaker (LOGIC POWER
ON/OFF switch), then through a line filter to the switching power supply. Figure 29 is a block diagram of
the I/O power supply. The standard rack power supply AC input is jumper selectable, the high-capacity
is available in either a 1 15V or 230V AC version.

Auxiliary Circuit Board
An auxiliary circuit board is mounted in the I/O power supply module. The auxiliary circuit board
(IOAXI) senses the +5V DC output to determine if it is within its normal operating range. A protection
signal PSOK is generated if the +5V is within its specified limits. The PSOK signal is normally at OV
when the power supply is on and +5V is within its normal limits. When the power supply is turned off or
the +5V drops below 4.75V, PSOK switches high, which provides a power fail signal to the CPU.
When connecting an AC power source to an I/O rack, ensure that all AC
input connections are identical on each of the terminal blocks on each
rack. Do no cross Line 1 (Ll) and Line 2 (L2). A difference in potential
may result which can cause damage to equipment.
MODULES
Each I/O module uses one physical I/O slot in an I/O rack and can be placed anywhere in the I/O
structure. A module can be placed anywhere in an l/O rack except the left most slot which is reserved
for communication modules. Modules have either 4, 6, 8 or 32 input or output circuits according to type.
Module Hardware Features
Each module consists of two parts: a printed circuit board and a terminal assembly. The printed circuit
board contains the electronic circuitry which interfaces a CPU to Input/Output devices and provides isolation from electrical noise. The printed circuit board plugs into a slot in an I/O rack and the terminal assembly attaches to the front edge of the printed circuit board. The terminal assembly is mounted on a
faceplate. Each faceplate contains various legends depending on the type of module.
The discrete 8 circuit modules have a markable lens surface for custom visual indication of input or
output wiring. The lens is on the upper half of the faceplate and is numbered 1 through 8, top to
bottom. The numbers correspond to input or output circuitry on the printed circuit board.
The terminal strips mounted on the faceplates have box lug terminals for ease of connection to field
wiring. Each box lug terminal is electrically rated at 10 amps. Each I/O rack has a tray mounted on the
bottom front for the purpose of running field wiring from external devices to and from the box lug
terminals.
Modules are color coded for convenience and as a visual safety feature. The color scheme is shown
below in Table 7. Note that the higher voltage modules are a bright color. Colors used range progressively from blue for low voltage modules to white for the highest voltage modules.

GEK-25361A
General Description of the Series Six
Input/Output System
The terminal assembly has a dual keying system to prevent the accidental connection of the terminal assembly to a circuit card that is not compatible with the field wiring on the terminals. This feature is helpful in troubleshooting in that if a circuit card fails it can only be replaced with the same type of card
since the keying system will only allow that type of card to be connected to the terminal assembly.

Each module contains 8 isolated input circuits. AC or DC voltages in the ranges shown in the table can
be input to the modules. Each input circuit has a high impedance Schmitt trigger which improves the life
of the circuitry. Maximum turn-on voltage is 78% of the nominal input voltage and turn-off is 20% of the
nominal voltage. Each input circuit also contains an opto-isolator, a rectifier to detect an AC input or a
DC input of either polarity, and a filter to provide immunity against various noise signals.
An LED is provided for each circuit which indicates an input ON condition. Figure 30 is a 115V Input

The 2’s-complement form of a binary number is found by inverting (complementing) all bits and then
adding one. For example, the decimal number 770 can be expressed as the ‘l6-bit binary number
0000001 ‘I 0000001 0. To find the 2’s-complement form: first invert, giving 11 1 1 1 10011 11 1 101;
then add one to this, giving 11 1 1 11001 11 ‘l 1 1 10. This would be a representation of the decimal

CPU can occur on either a positive or on a negative transition of the interrupt signal. The transition,
either an ON/OFF or OFF/ON edge trigger is jumper selectable by positioning a jumper plug on the
proper terminals on the circuit board. Figure 35 is an interrupt module. Specifications for the Interrupt

INTERRUPT INPUT MODULE
The interrupt modules can be used in a Model 60 CPU, a CPU station or a Local I/O station. They can not
be used in a Remote I/O station located at the distant end of a serial link. The Extended Function Set
must be selected in order to use an Interrupt Input module.
The eight interrupt input connections on a module are arranged in four groups of two isolated inputs
each. The eight inputs on the main l/O chain Interrupt module correspond to subroutines ‘I through 8
and the eight inputs on the auxiliary I/O chain Interrupt module correspond to subroutines 9 through 16.
When the CPU is initially powered up or set to the RUN mode, the CPU clears the Interrupt Input
modules. Thereafter, any interrupts which occur will be latched on the appropriate interrupt module. A
signal will also be sent to the CPU alerting it that an interrupt has occurred. The CPU will read the interrupt module and place the state of each interrupt in the input status table. The CPU will then execute the
subroutine associated with the highest priority (interrupt 1, 2, 3, etc. in order) interrupt one time, then
the next one in sequential order. When all of the interrupts that were read have been serviced, the CPU
resumes operation at the point where it was interrupted.

number is found by inverting (complementing) all bits and then adding one.
It is recommended that calibration of the Thermocouple Input module be performed every 180 days at
normal operating temperatures. Calibration procedures are detailed in Chapter 3 of this manual. A calibration connector is available for ease of connecting a voltage meter and a voltage source.

General Description of the Series Six
Input/Output System
Two types of output amplifiers are used on the DC Output modules, a sink version and a source version.
With the source module, when an output is in the ON state, the Output terminal is pulled up towards the
voltage of the positive side of the user power source. With the sink module, an Output terminal is pulled
down toward the negative side of the user power source when the corresponding output is ON.
A circuit is provided that disables all of the outputs in the event of an l/O power supply, I/O chain, or
CPU failure. This prevents improper operation which could damage equipment or cause injury to an
operator.
A DC Output module can be installed in an I/O rack or in an l/O slot in a Model 60 CPU rack. Before installing the module the seven segment DIP switch on the backplane adjacent to the selected l/O slot
should be configured to establish the I/O starting point number for the group of 8 outputs on the
module. Refer to Figure 28 or Chapter 2 of this manual for instructions on setting the DIP switches. Instructions for connecting field wiring to a DC Output module can also be found in Chapter 2.
High-Density Output Modules
The High-Density Output modules provide 32 output circuits on each module and are available as either
a 5V TTL or a l0-50V DC module. Both modules provide an optically isolated interface between the

Each module contains an address decoder to determine when the module is being addressed, optoisolation circuitry, D/A and output amplifier circuitry. On the unipolar and bipolar voltage output
modules, an internal power converter (DC/DC converter) delivers output levels that are isolated from the
l/O bus. On the current output module, output power can be derived from this converter or an external
power source can be provided by the user, thereby reducing the load on the I/O rack power supply. One
LED indicator displays the status of the module.

A jumper must be set on the current output module. If the internal loop supply is used to power the outputs the circuit board jumper (refer to Figure 43) should connect pins ‘I and 2. If a common external
source that provides a regulated +18V to +42V DC @ 100 mA is used, the jumper should connect pins
2 and 3. During operation, there is a significant voltage drop across the output devices; i.e., between the
low side of the load and the low side of the source.
Five connections are provided on the user connector block for each of the four output channels. Field
wiring is configured at these terminals according to the type of module. Detailed installation and wiring

General Description of the Series Six
Input/Output System
The twelve bits of data should be in straight binary form for positive output values, or in 2’s-complement
form for negative values.
The 2’s-complement form of a binary number is found by inverting (complementing) all bits and then
adding one. For example, the decimal number 770 can be expressed as the 16-bit binary number
OOOOOO’I 100000010. To find t h e 2’s-complement form: first invert, giving 1 1 1 1 1 1001 1 1 1 1 101;
then add one to this, giving 1 1 1 1 1 1001 1 11 1 1 10. This would be a representation of the decimal
number -770.
Each channel on the module can be set independently for an output range of either O++‘i OV,
-1 O++l OV, or 4-20 mA by configuring jumpers on the printed circuit board. Refer to the Installation
section (Chapter 2) of this manual for instructions on configuration of the jumpers.
It is recommended that calibration of the Analog Input Module be performed every 90 days at normal
operating temperature. Calibration procedures are detailed in Chapter 2 of this manual.
NOTE
The Analog Output module will function properly only when used with
CPUs with the following serial numbers:
Model 60 CPU: Cl 88-8135-0130, and higher.
Model 600 CPU: Cl 88-8138-0100, and higher.
Model 6000 CPU: Cl 88-8138-6000, and higher.

I/O SYSTEM CONFIGURATION
A Series Six I/O system can be configured by using 3 types of interconnected I/O groupings of racks.
An I/O system is compatible with all 3 models of Series Six CPU’s. The 3 systems (stations) are described in this section. I/O racks are connected by interface modules in the CPU or I/O racks. Interfacing
is through the parallel bus channel using a 16-pair shielded cable for the CPU I/O station and the Local
I/O station. Interfacing to the Remote l/O station is through a serial communication channel using a
2-pair shielded cable or an RS-232 modem link. The number of l/O racks and modules in a system is
determined by the number of I/O points supported by the model of Series Six CPU used in a system.
Each I/O rack contains a power supply, an interface module and up to 10 additional modules. The station
configuration will be explained in more detail in the illustrations of each I/O station in this section.

SYSTEM
COMMUNICATION
MODULES
The I/O system communication modules connecting I/O racks to the CPU and I/O racks to l/O racks are

I/O RECEIVER
The function of the l/O Receiver (Figure 46) is to interface the I/O chain parallel bus to the l/O modules
in an I/O rack. l/O racks are connected in a station (grouping of I/O racks) by linking I/O Receivers
together through a 16-pair twisted cable. No more than 10 racks can be connected in a station. A linking
of racks in this configuration is referred to as a daisy chain. The total cable length in a daisy chain from
the I/O Control module in a CPU station or the originating l/O Receiver in a Local I/O station can be no
more than 50 feet (15 meters).

General Description of the Series Six
Input/Output System
The I/O Receiver module receives signals through the parallel bus link, modifies the signals to update
the status of inputs and outputs, then relays those signals to the next rack in a chain. Racks can be connected when they are more than 50 feet (15 meters) from a CPU by connecting an I/O Receiver in the
first rack of the distant grouping to an I/O Transmitter through a ‘I 6-pair twisted cable on the parallel
bus. The length of this cable can not exceed 500 feet (150 meters). This distant grouping of racks at
the end of a parallel bus cable is referred to as a Local I/O station. Again, up to 10 I/O racks can be daisychained in a Local I/O station with no more than 50 feet (‘I 5 meters) of cable separating the first and the
last rack. The maximum distance an I/O Receiver can be located from the originating I/O Control or Auxiliary l/O Control module is 2000 cable feet (600 meters). In a Remote I/O station, an I/O Receiver is
used when connecting racks on the daisy chain in the station if more than one I/O rack is required in the
station.
An l/O Receiver can be installed in any I/O rack except the first I/O rack in a Remote I/O station. This
module is normally installed in the left most slot of an I/O rack; however, it could be inserted into any I/O
slot in an If0 rack if required.
I/O Chain Signal Continuation Or Termination
Before installation of an I/O Receiver in an I/O rack, it should be determined if the module is to be in the
last rack of an I/O station daisy chain or in a rack within the chain. An l/O Receiver as received from the
factory is configured to continue the l/O chain signals through the module toward the next I/O Receiver
in the chain. (See Figure 47). If the module is to be the last I/O Receiver in the daisy chain a jumper pack
must be removed from its socket at location D1 and DIP shunts inserted into the sockets at locations Cl
and Dl . When installed in these locations, the DIP shunts will cause the I/O chain signals to terminate.

GEK-25361A
If an I/O Receiver should be removed from the last rack in a daisy chain and moved to a rack upstream,
the jumper pack and DIP shunts must be reconfigured to continue the I/O chain signals. Conversely, if an
I/O Receiver is moved from a rack within the chain to the last rack in the chain, the jumper pack and DIP
shunts must be reconfigured to terminate the I/O chain signals.
When a jumper pack is not inserted in location D1 or the DIP shunts are not installed in locations Cl and
D1 they should be inserted in spare sockets located at the bottom of the printed circuit board. These
spare sockets are in board locations F2 and F3.
Connectors
Two 37 pin D-type connectors are mounted on the front edge of the module. The bottom connector
connects to downstream I/O racks. The top connector connects to the next upstream I/O rack, to an I/O
Transmitter at the opposite end of a parallel bus cable, or to an I/O Control module in a CPU rack.
Indicators
There are three edge-mounted LEDs which provide a visual status of various fault indications on the I/O
chain. The LEDs are viewed through the lens on the faceplate. Table 25 defines the status indicated by
each LED.

TRANSMITTER
The I/O Transmitter module (Figure 48) is used to provide an interface between the rack backplane signals and the i/O bus to a downstream Local I/O station. An l/O Transmitter should be used to interface
to a Local I/O station if I/O racks are required beyond the capacity of a CPU station (10 I/O racks), an existing Local I/O station or a model 60 CPU. Any number of I/O Transmitters can be installed in a rack as
long as the I/O load for the rack and the distance limitations are not exceeded. An l/O Transmitter can
be installed in a Remote I/O station and linked to additional I/O Transmitters up to 2000 feet (600
meters), thereby extending the Remote I/O capability by that distance. Each I/O Transmitter link cannot
exceed 500 feet (150 meters). It should be noted that no more than four I/O Transmitter links can be
used with the 2000 foot limitation on the parallel I/O chain.

The I/O Transmitter translates the l/O rack backplane signals into isolated, balanced signals at a level
suitable for transmission up to 500 feet (150 meters) and with sufficient power to drive up to 10 I/O
Receivers. Optocouplers on the module isolate signals passing through the module and a DC to DC converter provides a +5V DC isolated supply voltage to those circuits connected to the parallel l/O bus.
This method of isolation ensures that all Local I/O stations are electrically isolated from each other and
from the CPU station.
An l/O Transmitter can be installed in any card slot in an l/O rack except the left most slot which is normally reserved for an I/O Receiver. The seven-segment DIP switch on the backplane adjacent to the
selected slot for the module does not need to be set since it does not affect the operation of the
module. An l/O Transmitter does not require an I/O address.

Status Indicators
A monitor circuit checks the output level of the isolated +5V DC supply. If the output is not within its
specified tolerance, the monitor circuit causes the I/O Transmitter to shut down. An LED indicator is on
when the voltage is within tolerance. In addition, there are LED indicators for CHAIN OK and CHAIN
PARITY status. Table 26 defines the status information provided by the indicators.

l/O TRANSMITTER STATUS INDICATORS
Connector
One 37 pin D-type connector is mounted on the bottom front edge of the circuit board. A l6-pair parallel cable plugged into this connector in a model 60 CPU, a CPU station or a Local l/O station connects to
the first l/O Receiver in a Local l/O station at a distance not to exceed 500 feet (150 meters).
REMOTE I/O SYSTEM
The Remote l/O system allows a Series Six system to have an I/O capability that extends beyond the
limit of the 2000 feet (600 meters) maximum distance allowed with the parallel I/O bus. A Remote I/O
system can be located a maximum of 10,000 feet (3 Kilometers) from a model 60 CPU, a CPU station,
or a Local I/O station when using a two twisted-pair serial cable. In addition a Remote l/O system can be
transmitted over voice grade telephone lines through RS-232 or RS-422 compatible modems to a location a great distance from the originating I/O station.
System Connection
A Remote I/O system consists of a Remote I/O Driver, a two twisted-pair serial cable or modems and a
Remote l/O Receiver. The Remote I/O Driver is installed in a model 60 CPU, a CPU station or a Local I/O
station. The Remote I/O Driver is then connected by cable or a modem link to a Remote I/O Receiver in
the first slot of the first I/O rack of a Remote I/O station. If the Remote l/O Driver and Remote I/O Receiver are to communicate by connection to modems, the Remote Receiver module must be installed in a
High-Capacity l/O rack and the Remote Driver must be in either a High-Capacity I/O rack or a model 60
CPU, since a l2V DC source must be available to conform to RS-232 specifications. Figure 49 illustrates the two methods of system configuration described above.

I/O POINT RANGES AVAILABLE IN REMOTE I/O STATIONS
The address selected for the Remote I/O Driver can fall anywhere within the range of l/O points in a
block. All I/O modules in a Remote I/O station (including the Remote I/O Driver) must have switches 5,6
and 7 (120 l/O) or 6 and 7 (248 I/O) set the same. By doing this all modules in a Remote station are thus
tied to that particular Remote I/O Driver. More than one Remote l/O station can be programmed to the
same l/O block; however, each Remote Driver must have its own unique address. Each Input module
must also have a unique address, output module addresses can be duplicated. Unused I/O points in a
Remote I/O station can be used by another Remote I/O station, a Local l/O station, a CPU station or a
model 60 l/O slot.
For additional information on selection of I/O points in a Remote l/O station refer to Chapter 2,

Printed Circuit Board Jumpers
There are several printed circuit board jumper plugs which must be properly configured for operation of
a Remote I/O system. Jumper plugs are located on both the Remote I/O Driver and the Remote I/O
Receiver. Factory configuration of these jumpers is set for the following options.
- 120 Inputs and 120 Outputs
- Connection up to 10,000 feet (3Km) using two twisted pair serial cable
- Baud rate - 57.6Kb
- Halt CPU on communications failure or Remote I/O parity error.
- Turn all outputs off on communications failure
- Odd serial parity
If a block of 248 Inputs and 248 Outputs, or the Remote I/O system is to be linked with RS-232 compatible modems, or any of the other options are to be changed, the printed circuit board jumper plugs
must be reconfigured. A table listing all jumpers which can be configured by the user can be found in

REMOTE I/O DRIVER
The Remote I/O Driver module (Figure 52) provides control and data signals to a Remote I/O station. Circuitry on this module converts output data from parallel to serial and input data from serial to parallel.
Specifically, a Remote I/O Driver connects the I/O structure in a model 60 CPU, a CPU station or a Local
I/O station to a Remote I/O station through a serial communications channel by direct connection with a
two twisted pair cable or a communications link using RS-232 compatible modems. Using the two
twisted pair cable, the Remote l/O station can be located up to a maximum of 10,000 feet (3
kilometers) from the Remote l/Q Driver. A communications link using modems allows connection over a
much greater distance. An l/O Transmitter located in a rack in the Remote I/O station can be the first of
a link of up to four 500 foot (150 meters) links using l/O Transmitters, thereby extending the remote
capability an additional 2000 feet (600 meters).

l-103
General Description of the Series Six
Input/Output System
GEK-25361A
The Remote I/O Driver has circuitry sufficient to drive up to 248 Inputs and 248 Outputs. A Remote I/O
Driver module can be installed in any unused l/O slot in a CPU station, a Local I/O station or a model 60
CPU (except the left most slot in an I/O rack which is reserved for a Receiver module). If connection to
the Remote I/O station is to be made through a modem link, the Remote I/O Driver must be installed in a
High-Capacity I/O rack. This is necessary since the RS-232 specification requires +12 and -12V DC for
operation.
Addressing
As described previously, a block of addresses for the Remote I/O station is established by setting the
seven segment DIP switch adjacent to the slot selected for the Remote I/O Driver. For a block of 120
I/O, switches 5, 6, and 7 are set to select the block and for 248 I/O, switches 6 and 7 are set to select
the block of l/O addresses. All I/O modules in the Remote I/O station connected to a Remote I/O Driver
must then have the corresponding DIP switch segments set in the same configuration as the Remote I/O
Driver. In all cases switches 1 to 4 or 1 to 5 (in addition to 5, 6, 7 or 6, 7) are configured to set a unique
address for each module in the Remote l/O station; i.e. l-8, 249-256, 673-680, etc.
A unique I/O reference (address) must also be set for the Remote l/O Driver and can be the first of any
group of eight consecutive valid l/O references within the selected block. The eight input references provide status information which can be monitored on the Program Development Terminal by observation
of the Input Status Table. The eight output references are for future use. Table 29 lists the information
provided by these inputs. In the table, l/O references 0297-0304 are used as an example. As viewed in
the Status Table, a "1" indicates that the input is on and a “0” indicates that the input is off.

REMOTE I/O RECEIVER
The Remote I/O Receiver module (Figure 53) is the interface to the serial communications link for a
Remote l/O station. It is physically located in the first rack in a Remote I/O station, normally in the left
most slot since the Remote I/O Receiver does not require an I/O address (no DIP switch on backplane
adjacent to the leftmost slot).
A Remote l/O Receiver connected to a Remote I/O Driver (located in a model 60 CPU, CPU station, or a
Local I/O station) through a two twisted pair cable can be installed in any I/O rack. If connection to the
Remote I/O station is to be through a communications link using RS-232 compatible modems, then the
Remote I/O Receiver must be installed in a High-Capacity I/O rack.

Ref. 82-PC-2
GEK-2536lA
General Description of the Series Six
Input/Output System
Circuitry on this module converts output data from serial to parallel and converts input data from a parallel to a serial format. The Remote I/O Receiver also isolates the serial data cable from the backplane bus
and provides error checking circuitry. If more than one I/O rack is required in a Remote I/O station, the
additional racks are daisy chained to the Remote I/O Receiver through I/O Receivers.
Connectors
A Remote I/O Receiver has two edge mounted D-type connectors. The top connector (25 pin) connects
to a Remote I/O Driver at the opposite end of the serial communications link using a two twisted pair
cable or to a modem located no more than 50 feet (I 5 meters) from the Remote I/O Receiver.
The lower connector (37 pin) provides a connection through a 16-pair parallel bus cable to an l/O Receiver module located in the next downstream rack in a Remote I/O station. If no connection is to be
made to the lower connector, the I/O chain signals must be terminated. This is done by reconfiguring
three jumper plugs on the printed circuit board which performs the same function as reconfiguring the
jumper pack and DIP shunts on an l/O Receiver module.
Status Indicators
The Remote l/O Receiver has four LED indicators visable through the faceplate lens. The legends on the
faceplate lens are the same as those on the Remote I/O Driver. Table 32 defines the status provided by
these indicators.

CPU I/O STATION
The CPU I/O station, Figure 54, consists of a Series Six CPU with up to 10 I/O racks. The racks are daisy
chained on the parallel I/O bus (to the l/O Control module) with the last I/O rack located physically no
more than 50 feet from the CPU.
Each I/O rack in the chain includes a Power Supply module (standard or high-capacity), an I/O Receiver
module and up to 10 additional modules. The modules in the I/O rack are determined by the system configuration required. The modules can be a combination of the following modules: Input modules, Output
modules, I/O Transmitter module and Remote I/O Driver module. Each I/O rack must have one, (and only
one) l/O Receiver.
If more than IO I/O racks are required in a system, one or any of the I/O racks in the CPU station may
contain any combination of l/O Transmitter or Remote I/O Driver modules for connection to additional
l/O racks.
A Program Development Terminal can be plugged into the CPU or the last I/O rack in a CPU l/O station
or a Local l/O station.

GEK-25361A
LOCAL I/O STATION
A Local I/O station can have up to 10 l/O racks daisy chained through the parallel bus channel. No more
than 50 feet of cable can separate the first and last rack in a Local l/O station. A Local I/O station is
linked to a Model 60 CPU, a CPU I/O station or another Local I/O station through the parallel bus. The interface is from an I/O Transmitter module to an I/O Receiver module. An I/O Receiver module may be
located a maximum of 500 feet from the I/O Transmitter module. The last Local l/O station in a chain
can be a maximum of 2000 feet (four I/O Transmitter links) from the originating l/O Control or Auxiliary
I/O module in the CPU station.
A Program Development Terminal can be plugged into any Local l/O station. This scheme allows the
Program Development Terminal to be located up to 2000 feet from the CPU.
Figure 55 illustrates the allowable configurations for a Local I/O station.
Each I/O rack in the Local I/O station can have the same configuration of modules as the I/O racks in a
CPU station.

REMOTE I/O STATION
A Remote I/O station (see figure 56) consists of I/O racks connected in a daisy chain through the parallel
I/O bus. A combination of I/O modules with a total of either 120 inputs and 120 outputs or 248 inputs
and 248 outputs (jumper selectable) can be used in a Remote I/O station. The first and last rack in a
Remote I/O station daisy chain can be separated by no more than 50 feet (15 meters) of cable.
In addition to the racks on the daisy chain an I/O Transmitter located in a rack in the Remote I/O station
can be the first in a link of l/O Transmitters connecting to additional groupings of racks. An I/O Transmitter can be connected to the first rack in a group of racks by a 16 pair parallel cable with a length up to
500 feet (150 meters). Up to four links can be connected in this manner, thereby extending the Remote
I/O station an additional 2000 feet (600 meters).
NOTE
The total number or I/O points assigned to a Remote l/O station (either
120/120 I/O or 248/248 l/O) cannot be exceeded regardless of the rack
configuration.
The Remote I/O station connects to an upstream l/O rack in either a CPU station or Local l/O station or
to an I/O slot in a model 60 CPU. The connection is made through a serial communication channel by a
two twisted pair shielded cable or through an RS-232 compatible modem link. The communications
module in the model 60, the CPU station or Local I/O station is a Remote I/O Driver while the communications module in the Remote I/O station is a Remote I/O Receiver.
The serial communications link to the Remote I/O station can be up to 10,000 feet (3 Km) using a two
twisted pair cable. Using an RS-232 modem link, the distance between local and remote I/O is virtually
unlimited.
NOTE
A Remote I/O Driver module cannot be installed in a Remote I/O station.
A Program Development Terminal cannot be connected to a Remote I/O
station.
Figure 56 illustrates a possible configuration for a Remote I/O station. The illustration shows how a
Remote I/O station can be extended an additional 2000 feet (600 meters) by using I/O Transmitters to
connect additional racks to the parallel bus.

The Auxiliary I/O system is available only with the Model 6000 CPU. If a Model 6000 CPU has an Auxiliary I/O module, an l/O system identical to the main l/O system can be originated at the CPU. The structure of the Auxiliary I/O system allows the Model 6000 CPU to accept an additional 1000 inputs and
1000 outputs. The total I/O capacity of the Model 6000 CPU with the Auxiliary l/O system is 2000

PROGRAM DEVELOPMENT TERMINAL ENCLOSURE
KEYBOARD
The Program Development Terminal incorporates a keyboard assembly which folds out from the
enclosure. With the unit resting on its back, the keyboard will open to a position which allows operation
from an upright position. The keyboard extends 8 l/4 inch, (209.55mm). When the terminal is setting
on its base, the keyboard folds down to an angle that is comfortable for data entry. The keyboard folds
up into the terminal for storage and transportation, thus protecting the unit in a secure, rugged
enclosure.
A molded ridge around the edge of the keyboard protects against damage to the keys if the handle
should be in the way when the keyboard is closed.
The pushbuttons are reliable solid-state modules with good tactile feel and travel which helps greatly in
speed and ease of data entry and reduction of operator fatigue.
Keys are grouped and color coded by function. The color coded keys provide a quick reference for the
operator when entering programs. The key tops are two-shot injection molded. By use of this method of
molding the legend color goes all the way through the key and will not rub off. Figure 59 is an illustration
of the keyboard layout.

CABLE STORAGE
A storage compartment is provided to secure all cables necessary for operation of the PDT. Molded-in
cable wraps are provided to allow the AC power and PDT-to-CPU cables to be neatly stored. A hinged
panel folds up to enclose the cables for transporting and storage. Additionally the compartment contains
a panel with connectors for external devices (e.g. printer, Minicartridge Tape Unit, composite video
monitor), a fuse and a CRT brightness control.
CRT DISPLAY
The CRT has a 12 inch (304.8mm) diagonal measure screen with an anti-glare faceplate for good visibility under adverse lighting conditions. The characters are displayed on the screen in a 5 x 7 dot matrix. A
brightness control allows adjustment to various ambient lighting conditions.
TAPE UNIT
An optional built-in tape unit allows the user to read in programs or to write a program to tape. The tape
unit uses the 3M DC100A minicartridge. Data is transferred between the PDT and the tape unit in a
parallel mode of operation. This mode of operation allows a 32K program to be read or written on a
single cartridge in less than three minutes. See Figure 60.

KEYSWITCH
A three position, key-operated switch (key removable in the Monitor position) allows for 3 operating
modes: Monitor, On-Line, and Off-Line. In the Monitor mode, the Program Development Terminal can
read data from the CPU but cannot write data to it. All tables (input, output, and override), registers and
Scratch Pad memory are updated automatically to reflect the status of the CPU.
The On-Line mode allows the user to read data from the CPU and to write data to the CPU. Status
tables, register memory, and Scratch Pad memory are updated automatically to reflect the status of the
CPU. In the On-Line mode, certain single word changes can be made to the CPU while it is running.
A main difference between the Off-Line and On-Line modes is that in the Off-Line mode, tables and
registers are updated by a command (not automatically) and single word changes while the CPU is running are not permitted. With the Program Development Terminal in the Off-Line mode, programs can be
created (which can be dumped to tape) without the necessity of having a CPU present.
CONNECTION
TO I/O CHAIN
The Series Six Program Development Terminal can be plugged into the last I/O Receiver in a CPU Station
or a Local I/O Station. This allows the user to connect the Program Development Terminal to an l/O rack
distant from the CPU. All the features of, the Program Development Terminal can be used to debug programs or diagnose faults for troubleshooting while being close to the device being controlled.
The only noticeable effect in having the Program Development Terminal distant from the CPU is that
communication between devices becomes slightly slower with increasing distance due to propagation
delays.

REQUIREMENTS
A system consists of a CPU rack and I/O racks each containing their own power supply. For a system
requiring a Model 600 CPU or a Model 6000 CPU, the I/O modules will be contained in a separate rack
or racks, The Model 60, if no more than 192 I/O points are required, can be completely contained in one
rack. The proper length cables for interconnection of CPU rack to l/O rack or I/O rack to I/O rack must
be determined and be available for initial system check-out and installation. Standard l/O cables are
available for interconnection o n the parallel I/O bus in standard lengths ranging from 2 to 500 feet (.6 to
150 meters). Remote I/O requires a cable with two twisted shielded pairs for direct connection to
10,000 feet (3Km) and is normally user supplied. If connection to the Remote I/O is to be by RS-232
compatible modems, a cable of no more than 50 feet (15 meters) is required to connect the modems on
each end of the serial link. Cabling must be provided by the user from external devices to be controlled
to the I/O modules.

INITIAL SYSTEM CHECKOUT
It is recommended that an initial basic system checkout be performed before the system is configured,
mounted, cables run and wiring of external devices to the I/O modules is made. The following list of
items to be checked is intended as a guide to the user.
Visual
Verify that all racks, modules and cables conform to the system configuration as ordered.
Record model and serial number. If you have to communicate with the General Electric Co.
regarding any problems, this information must be given to them.
Check for physical damage during shipment. If any damage is noted, notify the carrier
immediately. You should also call the Programmable Control Product Service Specialist in
Charlottesville, Virginia, at (804) 978-5624. A Customer Service representative will give you
further instructions at this time.
Each Input or Output module has a seven position DIP switch mounted on the I/O rack backplane adjacent to its respective slot in a rack. Select and configure the proper l/O module starting point at this time.
When modules are mounted in the CPU and/or l/O racks, be sure they are seated properly and
that the quarter-turn thumb screws securing the faceplates to the rack are tight.
If modules have been shipped separate from the racks, install them in the proper slots and
attach their respective faceplates.
Electrical
Ensure that the AC power source is within the stated specifications. Provide isolated circuits
to minimize any problems with line interference. Isolated AC circuits are recommended when
using microprocessor controlled equipment because of the negative effects that noise or line
spikes may have on operation of the equipment.
Connect 115 or 230V AC to the proper screw connections on the CPU power supply. Depress
the Logic Power On/Off switch to the ON position. Ensure that the Power ON LED comes on. If
it is okay turn the power off.
Voltage is present (115 or 230V AC) on the power supply terminal board
which could be hazardous and may cause personal injury if care is no-i
taken.

GEK-25361A
Connect the Program Development Terminal to the CPU with the cable provided. Connect the
AC power plug to either 1 l5V AC or 230V AC as required.
Refer to the Series Six Programming Manual, GEK-25362, page 2.5 for start-up instructions.
If all of the above checks are completed satisfactorily, the system is ready to be configured and I/O
modules wired to their respective input and output devices.
If any problems are encountered during any of the above steps and they are not readily solved, contact
the Programmable Control Service Center at (804) 978-5747 in Charlottesville, Virginia. A Customer
Service representative will take the proper course of action to solve your problem.
CPU-TO-l/O
RACK
CONFIGURATION
The CPU and I/O racks should be mounted in a rack or panel as required. Connect 115 or 230V AC to
the proper terminals on the respective power supplies. If audible or visual alarms are required for various
system malfunctions, connect them to the proper terminals located on the terminal board on front of
the CPU power supply. Run cables between the CPU and l/O rack or racks as required. Run interconnecting wiring between external devices and l/O modules, and make the proper connections. Then connect
the Program Development Terminal. Now you can apply power, enter a program and system check the
input and output modules. See Figure 62.

GEK-25361A
I/O RACK-TO-l/O RACK CONFIGURATION
If I/O racks are to be daisy chained on the parallel communications channel, a maximum of 10 racks can
be on a daisy chain. Interconnect each rack from the I/O Receiver in one rack to the l/O Receiver in the
next rack downstream. A maximum total cable length of 50 feet (15 meters) can interconnect I/O racks
on the daisy chain. See Figure 63.
The last I/O Receiver module in a daisy chain must have the I/O chain signals terminated at that module.
Refer to the Installation Chapter in this manual for instruction on terminating the I/O chain signals.
The I/O chain of 10 racks can be part of a CPU station, or a Local I/O station. If another Local station is
required, an l/O Transmitter module must be located in any I/O slot in any of the I/O racks. This allows
connection to an I/O Receiver module in an l/O rack no more than 500 feet (150 meters) away.
If a Remote I/O station is required, a Remote I/O Driver module must be installed and connection made
by a cable of no more than 10,000 feet (3 Km) (two pair twisted, shielded) to an I/O rack containing a
Remote l/O Receiver module. Remote I/O stations at distances greater than 10,000 feet (3 Km) should
be connected to the Local 1/O station, CPU station or a model 60 CPU through a serial communication
link using RS-232 compatible modems. In the Remote I/O station racks can be daisy-chained from the
Remote I/O Receiver through l/O Receivers in racks other than the first one.

SECTION 7
DATA PROCESSOR
This section describes the hardware and functions of the Data Processor Unit (DPU) for use with the
Series Six family of CPU’s, The Data Processor provides the ability to perform complex functions and to
access large quantities of data without interrupting or slowing down logic processing in the PC. For
detailed operation of the DPU, refer to the Data Processor Users Guide, GEK-25363.
PHYSICAL
DESCRIPTION
The Data Processor interfaces to the Series Six CPU by physically connecting to the I/O Control module.
Two methods of housing the Data Processor modules are used by the Series Six family.
Model 600 CPU
Four module slots are provided in the Model 600 CPU rack for the Data Processor modules. They are
the 4 left slots as viewed from the front of the rack. This is the only CPU that can have the Data Processor self-contained. One each of the Data Control, Data Prom, Data Storage and Dual Serial Port modules
are required for a DPU system in a model 600 CPU.
Data Processor Rack
The modules for the Data Processor in its own rack are contained in a Series Six universal rack with its
own power supply. Eleven slots are available for modules. This separate rack can be used with any
model CPU. See Figure 65. DPU modules are described below.

Data Serial Port
The Dual Serial Port module provides two serial communication ports for interfacing peripheral devices
to a Data Processor. This module supports RS-232C and 20mA current interfaces for message generation and operator interface. A selectable baud rate of 110, 300, 600, 1200, 2400, 4800 or 9600 baud
is configured by a jumper strap. A system must use at least one Dual Port module and can support up to
eight of these modules, thereby allowing a system a total of sixteen serial ports.

PROGRAMS
Programs supplied with the Data Processor are briefly explained below. Additional programs will be
available in the future.
Message Generator
This program allows the Data Processor to store up to 256 different messages with various formats.
Each message can be up to 8000 characters long and can include variables supplied to the Data Processor by the CPU. The CPU also initiates the printing of messages, specifies the command number and
identifies the port if more than one port is used in a system.
File Storage and Retrieval
This is a program that allows the Data Processor to store a large quantity of data in a structured file
system that is directly accessible by the CPU. Each structure consists of files; each file contains
records; each record contains registers. The CPU can read or write into any segment of the file
structure. The additional storage provided by these files can be used to expand the CPU’s register
capability, to store recipes for batch processes, to retain production data for inventory control, and to
perform many other processing functions.
The file structure is illustrated below. The maximum file size is 4000 registers. Any allowable combination of files, records, and registers can be used up to the maximum number of registers.

INSTALLATION
This chapter contains information which will aid in installing the Series Six family of Programmable Controllers and preparing the system for use. Included are instructions for unpacking/packing, inspecting, installing in a rack or panel, setting internal switches, connecting cables, input/output wiring and initial
checkout.
QUALITY CONTROL
Each Series Six system undergoes a thorough quality control inspection and extensive system testing
before being shipped. Each part of a system has had environmental and operational tests before leaving
the factory. If any problems should arise with a Series Six system, Programmable Control Customer Service should be contacted for instructions. Procedures for contacting Programmable Control Customer
Service are given later in this section.
PACKAGING
The method of packing and shipping the components of a Series Six system are outlined in this section.
CPU racks are shipped with the following modules in their respective slots: Power Supply, I/O
Control, Logic Control, and Arithmetic Control. In addition, the Internal Memory module and the
Register Memory module are installed in a Model 600 or 6000. In a Model 60 the combined
memory module is shipped installed in its respective slot. Blank faceplates are shipped separately
for the remaining slots.
The CPU rack is inserted into 2 halves of foam plastic sections. This is then placed in an antistatic
plastic bag along with the rack mounting brackets, hardware for mounting the brackets, a printed
circuit board extraction/insertion tool, an I/O terminator plug and the Series Six Installation and
Maintenance Manual. This package is then placed in a shipping container.
The Logic Memory and any optional modules are shipped in a separate container. Each module is
placed in the bottom of a two-section foam plastic package. Two inserts are provided, one for the
printed circuit board and one for its faceplate. The top section is added and this package is inserted
into a sleeve. Either 2, 5 or IO module packages are then placed in a shipping container.
l/O racks are shipped with only the power supply in place. The I/O racks and I/O modules are packaged the same as the CPU rack and modules.

Data Processor racks are shipped with only the power supply mounted in the rack. The rack is packaged the same as a CPU rack. Each of the DPU modules is packed in an individual two section
package. All of the individual packages are then placed in a shipping container.
The Program Development Terminal is enclosed by a Urethane foam molded two-piece package.
The back of the Program Development Terminal is placed in the bottom cap, the carrying handle is
folded to its bottom position, and the top cap is placed over the Program Development Terminal.
The foam package is then inserted in a shipping container. One GEK-25362, Programming Manual
for Series Six Programmable Controllers is included with each Program Development Terminal.
It is recommended that the shipping containers and all packing material be saved in the event that it becomes necessary to transport or ship any part of the system.
VISUAL
INSPECTION
Upon receiving your Series Six system, carefully inspect all shipping containers for damage during
shipping. If any part of the system is damaged, notify the carrier immediately. The damaged shipping
container should be saved as evidence for inspection by the carrier.
It is the reponsibility of the consignee to register a claim with the carrier for damage incurred during
shipment. However, General Electric Company will fully cooperate with the customer should such an
action be necessary.
PREINSTALLATION
CHECK
After unpacking the Series Six CPU and I/O racks, modules, Program Development Terminal and Data
Processor rack and modules if included as an option, it is recommended that serial numbers of the CPU
and DPU racks and the Program Development Terminal be recorded. The serial numbers are required if
Programmable Control Customer Service should need to be contacted for any reason during the warranty period of the equipment.
Verify that all components of the system have been received and that they agree with your order. If the
system received does not agree with your order call Programmable Control Product Service
at 1-800 GEFANUC. A Customer Service representative will give you further instructions at this time.

Relatively small amounts of excess charge can cause very intense electrostatic fields in metal-oxide-semiconductor (MOS) devices, damaging
their gate structure. When the board covers are removed, avoid handling
the circuit boards under conditions favoring the buildup of static
electricity. Failure to observe this CAUTION could result in the destruction
of the CMOS RAM devices in this module.
With the board covers in place, it is unlikely that normal handling of the
memory modules will cause any damage.
Be sure that the board covers provided with each of the Logic Memory modules are in place before installing the modules.
Do not allow the bottom of a module to come into contact with a conductive (metal) surface when the board covers are removed. Failure to observe this CAUTION could result in the discharge of the nonrechargeable Lithium battery and the loss of memory contents.

Installation
Rack and CPU Module Installation
Note that there are 4 rows of switches, which have 2 DIP switches per row. Each DIP switch has 8 toggles or positions per switch for a total of 16 toggles per row.
The right row of switches control logic Memory slot A, the next row of switches control Logic Memory
slot B, the next row controls slot C, and the left row controls slot D.
Each toggle in each row of switches turns on a 2K increment of memory in the appropriate slot. An
increment of memory is activated (turned on) when the proper toggle is depressed to the closed
position.
The toggles of the switches are connected so that the toggle at the top (DIP switch position I) turns on
the first 2K of memory, the second toggle turns on the second 2K of memory and so on until the last
toggle on the bottom turns on the last 2K of memory which gives a total of 32K of Logic Memory.
The starting address of the first 2K of memory is 0, the next 2K starts at 2K, the third 2K starts at 4K,
the fourth 2K starts at 6K and so on until the last 2K increment which starts at 30K.
Some basic rules must be observed when programming the Logic Memory location switches.
Do not close more than one switch per 2K of memory in its appropriate slot.
The memory should be kept in sequence, do not split up a memory.
Do not double program memory locations. If a memory in slot A is an 8K memory and toggles are
on at locations 2K, 4K, 6K and 8K, do not start a second 8K memory in slot B at locations 2K, 4K,
6K or 8K - it must start at location 1 OK.
Do not program more switches then there is memory present.
Do not leave holes in a memory. If you have an 8K memory in slot A, it cannot be programmed at
2K, 4K, 6K and 1 OK. If you start at 2K, the switches must be in sequence 2K, 4K, 6K and 8K.
In the illustration, Figure 11, as an example, the switches are programmed for an 8K memory in slots A,
B and C and a 4K memory in slot D. A shaded toggle position means that the toggle is turned on.
When the Logic Memory location switches have been properly set, the Internal Memory module is ready
to be installed.
1W A R N I N G 1
If the Logic Memory location switches are not set properly, the CPU will
not operate properly. An accident to an operator or to your machine
could result due to the program running out of sequence.
Position the module so that the side with the LED on it is to your right (facing the CPU power supply).
Using the extraction/insertion tool insert the Internal Memory module into its proper slot which is immediately to the left of the Arithmetic Control module.

REGISTER
MEMORY
MODULE
The Register Memory module has no internal devices which need programming. Your CPU will be received with this module installed if you have a Model 600 or 6000 (Model 60 does not have a separate
Register Memory module since all memories are combined onto one module).
If you should remove this module, when replacing it be sure to install it in the proper slot, which is the
slot immediately to the left of the Internal Memory module. When installing a new Register Memory, it is
recommended that the following procedure be used. Power down the PDT, switch to the OFF LINE
mode, then power back up. From the Scratch Pad Display set the Register Memory size, then from the
Supervisor Display, perform the Clear Scratch Pad and Transition Parity Error function.
ARlTHMETlC CONTROL MODULE
LOGIC CONTROL MODULE, BASIC OR EXTENDED
Neither of these modules have any devices needing on-site programming.
The Logic Control module should be installed in the third slot to the left of the CPU power supply.
NOTE
Control adjustment and jumper placement on the Logic Control circuit
board have been done at the factory and should not be changed by the
user.
The Arithmetic Control module should be installed in the slot immediately to the left of the Logic Control
module.
A short length of ribbon cable is used to interconnect these two modules through sockets on the lower
front edge of each printed-circuit board. See Figure 12. Ensure that this cable is in place and that the
connectors are well seated. Attempting to operate the system without the ribbon cable connected between these two modules will cause the CPU to operate unpredictably.

GROUND
A common system ground connection is provided by the GND connection from the 115V AC or 230V
AC power source to the terminal board on the power supply. The programmable control is connected internally to this point.
All racks located within a CPU station, a Local I/O station or a Remote I/O station must have a common
ground between racks. Stations do not need to have a common ground run between them since they
are isolated from one another by circuitry on the transmitter and receiver modules.

SYSTEM CONFIGURATION
I/O rack(s) should be rack, panel or wall mounted in the same manner as the CPU rack. When mounting
multiple racks at the same location, enough space should be allowed between racks, both horizontally
and vertically, to allow sufficient air flow between racks (minimum of 6 inches vertically).
l/O Communication modules should be available for installation in racks The types of I/O Communication modules are determined by the number of I/O points required and the location of the racks in a
system. Refer to Section 4 of Chapter 1 for a discussion of the 3 types of stations possible in an 1/O
system (CPU, Local and Remote). The type of I/O station will determine whether your I/O racks will contain I/O Receivers, l/O Transmitters, Remote I/O Drivers, Remote I/O Receivers or combinations of these
modules. Figure 14 is an example of a typical I/O rack.
To prevent accidental mating of an 1/O module with a faceplate containing voltages not compatible with
that module, all of the I/O printed circuit boards are keyed to match the corresponding faceplates.

SYSTEM
COMMUNICATION
MODULES
The I/O system communication modules are the l/O Receiver, l/O Transmitter, Remote I/O Driver, and
Remote l/O Receiver. Individual functions of these modules are described in Chapter 1. Installation instructions for each of these modules is included in this section.
I/O RECEIVER
The l/O Reciever module is normally installed in the left most slot of an I/O rack since this module does
not require an I/O address. The left most slot does not have a seven segment DIP switch adjacent to the
slot on the backplane.
Before installing an I/O Receiver, determine whether the l/O Receiver is to be in the last rack of an I/O
station daisy chain or in a rack within the chain. If it is to be in the last rack, the I/O chain signals must be
terminated. If the receiver is to be in a rack within the daisy chain it must be configured to continue the
I/O chain signals through the module, passing these signals on to the next I/O rack.

GEK-25361A
Installation
The I/O Rack
If an I/O Receiver should be removed from the last rack and moved to an upstream rack in a daisy chain,
the module must be reconfigured to continue the I/O chain signals. Figure 17 shows the physical locations described above.

The top connector on an I/O Receiver can be connected to several points as determined by system
configuration. Possible connections are:
I/O Control module in a CPU rack.
Next upstream I/O rack in a daisy chain of racks.
An l/O Transmitter in a model 60 CPU I/O slot, a CPU l/O station, a Local l/O station or a Remote
l/O station.
The lower connector connects to the next rack downstream, if additional racks are to be included in a
daisy chain of I/O racks.
I/O
TRANSMITTER
The I/O Transmitter requires no field configuration. An I/O Transmitter module can be installed in any
slot in an I/O rack or in an I/O slot in a model 60 CPU. Connect an I/O cable (refer to Table 12) from the
connector on an I/O Transmitter to the first l/O Receiver in the next downstream I/O station.
The maximum distance separating an I/O Trasmitter from the I/O Receiver to which it is connected is
500 feet (150 meters). Also, no Local station should interface through more than four I/O Transmitter
links.
Install the I/O Transmitter in the selected I/O slot using the extraction/insertion tool provided with each
CPU.
REMOTE I/O DRIVER
A Remote I/O Driver can be installed in any I/O slot (except the left slot) in an I/O rack located in a CPU
I/O station, a Local I/O station or a model 60 CPU I/O slot. Before installing this module, the seven segment DIP switch on the backplane adjacent to the selected I/O slot for the module must be configured
to select the group of I/O references for the Remote I/O station.
Switches 5, 6, and 7 are used to establish the I/O references for groups of 120 Inputs and 120 Outputs.
If the option is selected for 248 Inputs and 248 Outputs, then switches 6 and 7 wilt establish the I/O
references. The remaining switches, either 1, 2, 3 and 4 or 1, 2 and 3 respectively, are used to select a
unique address for the Remote I/O Driver. The unique address will assign 8 consecutive I/O. points to the
Driver which will be used to provide status data to the CPU for the Remote I/O station. Table 6 is a guide
to the switch settings for selecting the I/O references in a Remote l/O station.

NOTE
If the RS-232 option is selected, the Remote I/O Driver module must be
installed in a High-Capacity I/O rack (Catalog Number IC600YR510A,
115V AC or IC600YR5 12A, 230V AC) or a Model 60 CPU rack.
When all of the option jumpers are properly configured for either operation with two twisted pair cable
or RS-232 modem as required, the Remote I/O Driver can then be installed in its I/O slot. Install the printed circuit board using the extraction/insertion tool. Connect the faceplate grounding wire and install the
faceplate by placing it in position and securing it by turning the quarter-turn thumbscrews clockwise.
Connection from the Remote I/O Driver to a Remote I/O station is by a two shielded, twisted pair cable
for direct cable connection up to 10,000 feet (3 Km) or a cable with a length up to 50 feet (15 meters)
to a modem for RS-232 connection. Refer to Figures 50 and 51 in Chapter 1 for connector, cable, and
wiring specifications. These cables are to be user supplied.
REMOTE I/O RECEIVER
A Remote I/O Receiver should be installed in the left slot of the first I/O rack in a Remote I/O station. The
Remote Receiver does not require an l/O address. Before installing a Remote Receiver module, several
jumper plugs on the printed circuit board must be configured to be compatible with the Remote I/O
Driver to which it is connected. The jumper locations are arranged on the board in groups of three pins
and are identified by the center pin. Figure 19 shows the board location for each of the jumpers.

When the option jumpers have been properly configured for operation using either a two twisted pair
cable or an RS-232 modem link, the Remote I/O Receiver can then be installed in its I/O slot. Install the
printed circuit board using the extraction/insertion tool. Connect the grounding wire from the faceplate
to the rack, then install the faceplate by placing it in position and securing it by turning the quarter-turn
thumbscrews clockwise.

Wiring connections and part numbers for the connectors and cable required are listed in Figures 50 and
51 in Chapter I. The cables are to be user supplied.
If there is to be more than one l/O rack in the Remote l/O station, the next downstream rack will connect
to the bottom connector using a 16 pair parallel l/O chain cable. This cable will in turn connect to an I/O
Receiver in the next rack. If the rack containing the Remote Receiver is the only rack in a Remote Station,
terminate the I/O chain signals by configuration of jumpers 89, 91, and 94 on the Remote Receiver
printed circuit board (see Table 9).

I/O MODULE LOAD
Two I/O racks are available, the difference being the load capacity of the power supply. The load capacity of the power supply is the internal load placed on it by the I/O modules and is expressed as units of
load. The power supply in a standard I/O rack can supply 100 units of load while the power supply in
the high capacity I/O rack can supply 275 units of load. The l/O racks to be used in a system are determined by installation of modules in the racks in a combination that does not exceed the load capacity of
the power supply in a rack. Table 13 lists the I/O load for each I/O module.
The power supply in a Model 60 CPU rack allows up to 100 units of load for the l/O modules contained
in that rack:

I/O MODULE
WIRING
AC/DC INPUT MODULE
An Input module can be installed in any I/O slot in an I/O rack except the one at the extreme left. This
slot does not have a DIP switch for setting an I/O point starting number and is reserved for a communication module. In a Model 60 CPU, the 6 slots to the left are for I/O modules. More than 192 I/O points
in a Model 60 system require an I/O rack(s) to be connected to the CPU.
Before installing a discrete 8 circuit AC/DC module, select the starting l/O point reference number by
configuring the seven segment DIP switch on the backplane adjacent to the selected l/O slot. Refer to
Figure 23 for DIP switch settings.
The module has 2 parts: the terminal assembly and the logic board (see Figure 24, Typical Input
Module). Install the printed circuit board using the extraction/insertion tool furnished with the CPU. With
the circuit board in place in its I/O slot, slip the terminal assembly over the circuit board so that the
terminals near the bottom of each part are mated properly. Next, secure the terminal assembly to the
rack using the quarter-turn thumbscrews.

I/O Module Wiring
Wiring to field devices should be routed through the tray attached to the bottom front of the rack. Run
the wiring to the appropriate module, and fan the individual wires to their respective terminals. Then
insert the wires into the box lugs on the terminal assembly and tighten the screws to ensure a good
connection. The lugs will accept one No. 12 AWG wire or two No. 14 AWG wires. Wiring connections
conform to UL standard 230 C.
The following wiring instructions can be used for these modules:

Note that the input connections are divided into 2 groups of 4, each having 2 neutral connections. See
Figure 25. Remove the cover from the terminal assembly before proceeding with wiring.
l
Connect the high side of each input to the appropriate input terminal 1 through 8.
l
Connect the low side of the inputs going to terminals 1 through 4 to either of the Nl terminals
(Neutral No. 1)
l
Connect the low side of the inputs going to terminals 5 through 8 to either of the N2 terminals
(Neutral No. 2).
All wires connected to either Nl terminal are at the same potential as are all wires connected to either
N2 terminal.
After connections have been made to the box lug terminals, the terminal cover should be installed by
guiding both of its edges onto the top of the terminal board and sliding it downward over the terminals.
The markable area provided on the left side of the plastic lens beside each LED should be used for
noting the function or source of each input.
When the Logic Power switch is turned off on an I/O or CPU rack, potentially dangerous voltages may remain at the box lug terminal connections
on I/O modules. These voltages are user supplied and are controlled externally from the CPU or I/O racks. Operators and maintenance personnel
should exercise extreme care when working with the I/O modules to prevent personal injury.

An Interrupt Input module (Catalog Number IC6006F808A) can be installed in an I/O slot in a model 60
CPU or any I/O slot in an I/O rack in a CPU station or a Local I/O station. One Interrupt Input module can
be used by a system with a model 60 or a model 600 CPU A model 6000 CPU can support two Interrupt Input modules, one in the main l/O chain and one in the auxiliary I/O chain. An Interrupt Input
module has eight input circuits.
The input terminals are arranged in four groups of two, with each group having an isolated neutral.

I/O Module Wiring
GEK-25361A
The DiP switch on the backplane is ignored by the Interrupt Input module since the module address is
hardwired on the circuit board. In the main I/O chain, the module input numbers 1-8 (I/O points
II OOI-11008), correspond to subroutines l-8 in the user program. In the auxiliary I/O chain, the module
input numbers l-8 (l/O points Al 1001 -Al 1008) correspond to subroutines 9- 16 in the user program.
Before installing the module, the eight blue jumper plugs on the circuit board (refer to Figure 3 I) should
be configured to respond to either rising edge transitions or falling edge transitions. Each of the eight
jumper locations has three pins. For rising edge transitions, the jumper plug should connect the middle
pin to the N pin. For falling edge transitions, connect the jumper plug from the middle pin to the I pin.
Input response to rising or falling edge transitions can be configured as required for each individual
input. The module is shipped from the factory with all eight inputs configured to respond to rising edge
transitions.
After configuring the eight jumpers, install the module using the extraction/insertion tool. Connect the
grounding wire between the faceplate and the rack. When the board is in place in the rack, the edge
connector on the faceplate should be slipped over the circuit board so that proper contact is made.
Secure the faceplate to the rack by pushing in on the quarter-turn thumbscrews while turning them
clockwise.

A DC Output module can be installed in any l/O slot in a model 60 CPU or in any slot in an I/O rack,
except the left most slot. Before installing one of these modules, select the I/O starting point number for
the module by configuring the seven segment DIP switch on the backplane adjacent to the selected I/O
slot. The I/O point selected is the first of eight consecutive I/O points for the module. Use Figure 23 as a
guide for setting the DIP switches.
Terminals for connection to loads to be controlled by one of the DC Output modules are arranged in two
groups with four outputs in each group -(I -4 and 5-8). Each group has a neutral (N) and a high (HI
connection. Each terminal can accommodate one No. 12 AWG wire or two No. 14 AWG wires. Figure
40 is a typical DC Output module showing the terminal arrangement and other module features.

For the 0 + +lOVand -10 --* + 10 V modules, any output channel can be connected as shown. For the
4 - 20 mA module, the channels can be connected for internal or external common source operation
depending on the setting of the circuit board jumper previously discussed. Alternately, any individual
channel can be connected with its own external source. All of the common (COMM) terminals are connected together inside the module. To minimize capacitive loading of the outputs, twisted-pair cables
should be used for wiring to the output connections whenever possible.
NOTE
Pots R69 and R6’i (the two top pots on the board) are factory set and should not be adjusted.
tings are accidentally changed, contact the
assistance.
Each channel on the module can be set independently for an output range of 0 + + 10 V, - 10 - + 10 V,
or 4 - 20 mA, by configuring the jumpers so that the numbered pins on the circuit board are connected
as shown in Table 18.
Note that whenever the range of a channel is changed, the channel should be recalibrated. See Chapter

One of the circuit board jumpers is set to select the de-energized state of each relay to have either
normally-open (N.O.) or normally-closed (N.C.) contacts. In addition, a second jumper in each circuit is in
series with the RC protection circuit for each output. When this jumper is removed, the RC circuit is removed which allows operation with low level analog and instrumentation signals where arc suppression
is not a factor during normal operation.
Install the printed circuit board by using the extraction/insertion tool. Connect the grounding wire from
the faceplate to the rack. With the board in place in the rack, slip the edge connector on the faceplate
over the circuit board so that proper contact is made between the two parts. Secure the faceplate to the

The technology used in the design of the Series Six system is such that under normal operating conditions few hardware failures are expected. If any failures should occur, they can quickly be isolated and
the defective assembly replaced with minimum downtime.
Troubleshooting is accomplished by thinking logically of the function of each part of the system and
how they relate to each other. A basic understanding of the various indicator lights will usually quickly
isolate the problem to the CPU rack, DPU rack, an l/O rack or the Program Development Terminal.
By use of the Program Development Terminal in conjunction with the CPU, troubleshooting of the program is accomplished. Any input or output can be looked at and changed or overridden as required.
The total system has to be considered when problems occur. The CPU, Program Development Terminal,
DPU, I/O’s and external devices connected to or controlled by the programmable controller must all be
operating and connected properly. All screw-down or soldered connections should be checked carefully
as well as all cable connections.
Troubleshooting procedures for the DPU can be found in the Data Processor Unit Users Guide.

is designed to help you isolate and correct
recommended that all maintenance and proproblem does arise it can be isolated quickof the system.

REPLACEMENT
MODULE
CONCEPT
The troubleshooting and maintenance techniques described in this manual promote the concept of complete board replacement. The prime objective of this concept is to minimize system downtime.
When a problem arises, first isolate it to the major assembly (Program Development Terminal, Central
Processing Unit, I/O rack, etc.), then to the defective module within that assembly. The defective
module is then replaced from a duplicate set of modules maintained on site. Your production line or
system is back up fast.
The defective module can be returned through normal channels under warranty or for service without
keeping your production line or system down for an extended period of time. The replacement concept
minimizes downtime to minutes as opposed to days. The potential savings far outweigh the comparatively small cost of duplicate modules.
If you did not purchase a duplicate set of modules with your initial system, we recommend that you contact your General Electric Sales Engineer and do so. Then, with the help of this manual and the staff at
the Programmable Control Service Center, you will be able to troubleshoot and repair just about any
problem that may arise.

Sub-Brightness
The brightness can be controlled by adjusting VR104. Set the external brightness control (on panel
inside of the cable storage compartment) to its center position, then adjust VR104 so that the background raster is barely visable. Back off VRI 04 until the raster just disappears. The focus is affected
to some extent as the brightness control is adjusted to provide the user with optimum viewing
conditions.
Focus
The focus control (VR105) allows adjustment for the sharpest display on the CRT screen. The
focus control should be adjusted to provide the desirable amount of line detail in the display.
Vertical Hold (Vertical Frequency)
The vertical hold control (VRl 01) allows adjustment to eliminate vertical rolling of the display.
Rotate this control slowly until the display locks in vertically.
Vertical Height
The vertical height control (VRI 02) adjusts the vertical height of the display area.
Vertical Linearity
The vertical linearity control (VR103) allows an adjustment to provide equal spacing on either side
of the center line of the display. Linearity of the vertical scanning can be checked by observing
crowding or spreading from top to bottom in the raster and displayed information.
Horizontal Centering (Video Center)
The horizontal centering control (LIOI) allows centering of the picture from left to right. Rotate
L101 slowly until the raster and displayed information are centered in the display area.
Display Width
The display width control (L102) allows adjustment of the width of the display area. Rotate L102
until the display area is sufficiently filled.
Horizontal Linearity
This control (L103) allows adjustment to provide equal spacing on either side of the center line.

PREVENTIVE MAINTENANCE
The preventive care and maintenance of the STR LlNK mini-cartridge recorders involves only simple,
easily accomplished procedures that enhance the performance of the unit and assure long-term,
trouble-free operation.
l
After every 8 hours of operation, clean the read/write heads with a magnetic head cleaner solvent.
Use cotton swabs to clean and dry the heads, taking care not to touch the heads with fingers or
other foreign objects.
l
After every 8 hours of operation, clean the capstan drive roller with a rubber drive cleaner solvent,
and wipe the roller dry.
l
After every 100 hours of operation, clean the entire unit thoroughly, removing any dust, metal
oxide particles, and lint that may have accumulated. Use an air hose or a soft brush to accomplish
this cleaning. After every 100 hours of operation, demagnetize the recorder heads.
l
If mechanical parts begin to squeak, they may be oiled sparingly with TSI-301 oil (or equivalent),
taking care to avoid dripping oil onto other parts or leaving an oil film that may attract dirt deposits.
Proper care of the tape cartridges can contribute to the long-term operation of the unit. Tape cartridges
should be protected from dirt and dust, preferably being stored in closed containers. The surface of the
tape must not be touched with fingers or other foreign objects. Cartridges in storage should be protected from heat and electromagnetic fields.

TROUBLESHOOTING
The malfunction causing the improper operation of a CPU can be isolated by checking the condition of
status indicator lights and keyswitch positions. The status indicator lights and keyswitches indicate the
current operating condition of the CPU and I/O system.
The normal condition of the status indicator lights is the on state. If any of the status indicator lights are
not on, check the troubleshooting sequence in this section for the proper course of action. Be sure to
note the positions of the keyswitches on both the CPU and the Program Development Terminal.
Table 3 is an indicator chart that gives a quick reference for the normal condition and definition of the
status indicator lights.
Refer to Figure 4 which is an illustration of a Series Six CPU showing the location of the Status indicator
lights and the keyswitches. The numerals and references on the illustration refer to a step in the troubleshooting sequence.

SECTION 5
I/O MODULE
CALIBRATION
This section provides the information required for performing the periodic calibration of l/O modules
requiring calibration. The recommended frequency of calibration for each of the modules assumes that
the module is operating at its normal operating temperature which is 0 to 60°C (32 to 140°F) at the
outside of the rack containing the module. The frequency of calibration should be adjusted as required
for specific applications.
Analog Input Module
CALIBRATION PROCEDURE
Calibration of the Analog Input module should be performed every 90 days at normal operating
temperature.
1.
SET UP:
Disconnect the field wiring going to the channel I connections on the faceplate. Connect an
analog source with an accurate voltmeter between the first (IN1) and third (VR1) terminals
along the front edge of the card, counting from the top downward.
Program the CPU to move the converted digital data from this channel to a convenient register
location, where its value can be observed using the Program Development Terminal. This can
be done by using the following program:

CALIBRATION PROCEDURE
Calibration of the Analog Output module should be performed every 90 days at normal operating
temperature.
1.
SETUP:
l After loosening the thumbscrews, remove the faceplate, taking care that the field wiring is not
disturbed. For the 0 -+lOVorthe-10 -+ +lO V module, connect a digital voltmeter (DVM)
between the terminals along the front edge of the card which are listed in the “V” column for
the first channel in Table 8. For the 4 - 20 mA module, connect a 250 ohm precision resistor
in parallel with the DVM, using the terminal numbers in the “I” column in Table 8. Note that the
terminals are numbered from the top downward, and that the double “common” printed-circuit
pads count as two terminals. Be sure that the circuit-board jumper is set for the internal loop
supply.
0 Display the Ouput Status Table on the screen of the Program Development Terminal, with the
cursor on the lowest output number assigned to this module by the DIP switches. Shift the display to hex format, obtaining a display of four hexadecimal digits corresponding to the 16
Output Status bits used by this module.
2.
LOW END:
l Using the PDT keyboard, enter the four hex digits shown in the LOW END column of the Calibration Table into the Output Status Table. Note that the first digit assigns the channel number
(0 - 3).
l Adjust the Offset Pot (Refer to Figure 13) for this channel until the DVM reads the voltage
shown in Table 9.
3.
HIGH END:
l Using the PDT keyboard, enter the four hex digits shown in the HIGH END column of Table 9
into the Output Status Table.
l Adjust the Gain Pot (Refer to Figure 13) for this channel until the DVM reads the voltage
shown in Table 9.
