The PACSystems RX3i Ethernet NIU, IC695NIU001,
makes it possible to use PACSystems RX3i and Series
90-30 I/O remotely on an Ethernet network. Once set up
by configuration, data exchange is completely automatic.
System control can be provided by any GE Fanuc master
device capable of exchanging Ethernet Global Data. The
Ethernet NIU automatically provides the controller with
status information in each exchange. The application
program logic in the controller can monitor this status data,
and issue appropriate commands to the Ethernet NIU.

▪
PACSystems RX7i and RX3i controllers can send
selected COMMREQs to the RX3i ENIU via Ethernet
Global Data. The ENIU executes the COMMREQs and
returns the results to the controller.
During EGD configuration, RX3i Ethernet interfaces are
identified by their Backplane/Slot location.

Ethernet Global Data Features
The Ethernet NIU communicates with its controller via
Ethernet Global Data exchanges. One exchange is used to
send outputs to the ENIU and another exchange is used to
send inputs back to the controller. The ENIU supports
receiving outputs from redundant controllers. By sending the
EGD exchange to a group address both controllers can
receive the inputs. Up to 1300 bytes of outputs can be sent to
a set of ENIUs from a controller. Each ENIU can send up to
1300 bytes of inputs to the controller.
A typical system might consist of a controller with five ENIUs.
The controller sends 1300 bytes of outputs and each ENIU
2
RX3i Ethernet NIU

sends 100 bytes of inputs to the controller. This typical
system would have its I/O updates occur in less than 25
milliseconds. If the controller scan time is greater than 25
milliseconds, the update occurs at the controller’s scan
rate. This performance timing is a guideline, not a
guarantee, and assumes that there is no other traffic on
the Ethernet link to the I/O. More performance data for
other system configurations can be found in the Ethernet
NIU Manual, GFK-2196A or later.
remove the battery, power-cycle the
CPU, then reinstall the battery.
ENIU COMMREQ Feature
To avoid loss of RAM memory
contents, routine maintenance
procedures should include
scheduled replacement of the NIU’s
lithium battery pack. For information
on estimating battery life, refer to
the PACSystems NIU Reference
Manual, GFK-2222.
The ENIU supports selected COMMREQs that are sent to
it by a “C” block application in a PACSystems Rx7i or RX3i
controller. Ladder code is written in the RX7i or RX3i to
interface to the “C” block which results in COMMREQ
commands being sent via a EGD Exchange to the ENIU.
The ENIU executes the COMMREQ and sends the results
back to the RX7i or RX3i via another EGD exchange.
The following COMMREQs are supported:

2.
Install the NIU module in backplane 0. The NIU requires
two slots and can use any slots except the highest
numbered (rightmost) slot. It is recommended that the
ENIU be located in slots 2 and 3. For more information
about choosing a slot for the ENIU, see below.

Turn on power. The module should power up. When the
NIU has successfully completed initialization, the NIU OK
LED stays on and the NIU SCANNING I/O and EN LEDs
are off.
4.
To save battery life, do not connect the battery for the first
time until the ENIU is installed in the backplane and the
backplane powered on. The battery may then be
attached to either of the two terminals in the battery
compartment. Once that is done, the ENIU may be
powered down and normal battery back up operation will
begin.

Operation, Protection, and Module
Status
Operation of this module can be controlled by the threeposition RUN/STOP switch or remotely by an attached
programmer and programming software. Program and
configuration data can be locked through software
passwords. The status of the NIU is indicated by the eight
NIU LEDs on the front of the module. (See “LED
Operation”).
Battery
A three-cell lithium battery pack (IC698ACC701) is
installed as show below. The battery maintains data
memory when power is removed and operates the
calendar clock. Program and initial values are always
loaded from flash when the ENIU powers up. When
replacing the battery, be sure to install a new battery
before disconnecting the old one. If a new battery is
installed when no battery is currently installed, the new
battery must be installed while the CPU has power.
Otherwise, the CPU may not power up. If that happens,
Backplane Locations for the ENIU
1.
The A/C Power Supply (IC695PSAx40) for the RX3i is a
doublewide module whose connector is left-justified as
viewed when installed in a backplane. It cannot be
located in slot 11 of a 12-slot backplane or slot 15 of a
16-slot backplane. No latch mechanism is provided for
the last (rightmost) slot in a backplane, so it is not
RX3i Ethernet NIU

GFK-2419H
possible to place the power supply in the second to
last slot.
2.
The RX3i ENIU (IC695NIU001) is a doublewide
module whose connector is right-justified as viewed
when installed in a backplane. The ENIU is
referenced for configuration and application logic by
the leftmost slot occupied by the entire module, not by
the slot the physical connector is located in. For
example, if the ENIU has its physical connector
inserted in slot 3, the module occupies slots 2 and 3
and the ENIU is referenced as being located in slot 2.
▪
▪
3.
The ENIU may be located in slot 0 with its
connector in slot 1.
The ENIU cannot be located in slot 11 of a 12slot backplane or in slot 15 of a 16-slot
backplane, because its connector cannot be
installed in the slot reserved for an expansion
module.
When migrating a Series 90-30 ENIU system to a
PACSystems RX3i ENIU, maintaining the slot 1
location of the ENIU means that only a singlewide
power supply may be used in slot 0. Either DC power
supply can be used (IC695PSD040 or
IC695PSD140). Therefore, if the application must
maintain a slot 1 ENIU and uses an AC power-supply,
the RX3i system must have the RX3i AC powersupply located in a slot to the right of the RX3i ENIU
in slot 1.
Locating the ENIU in a Slot Other than 1
Before deciding to place the ENIU in a slot other than slot
1, it is important to consider the possible application
migration issues that could arise, as explained below.
Application Program
For Service Request #15 (Read Last-Logged Fault Table
Entry) and Service Request #20 (Read Fault Tables), the
location of ENIU faults is not the standard 0.1 location, but
the slot the ENIU is located in (see above). Logic that
decodes fault table entries retrieved by these service
requests may need updating.
COMMREQs directed to the ENIU (e.g. those directed to
the serial ports of the ENIU) will need to be updated with
the correct ENIU slot reference.
Hardware Configuration
The slot location of the ENIU must be updated in the
hardware configuration to reflect the ENIU’s true location.
Fault Tables
Faults logged for the ENIU in the fault table will not in the
standard 0.1 (backplane.slot) location, but will reflect the
ENIUs actual slot.
Series 90 PLCs
Remote Series 90 PLCs that use SRTP Channels
COMMREQs expect the ENIU to be in slot 1 or slot 2. To
support communications with Series 90 SRTP clients such as
Series 90 PLCs using SRTP Channels, the RX3i internally
redirects incoming SRTP requests destined for {backplane 0,
slot 1} to {backplane 0, slot 2}, provided that the ENIU is
located in backplane 0 slot 2 (and the remote client has not
issued an SRTP Destination service on the connection to
discover the backplane and slot of the ENIU). This special
redirection permits Series 90-30 applications that expect the
power supply to be located leftmost and the ENIU to be
located to the right of the power supply to function. Attempts
to establish channels with ENIUs in slots other than 1 or 2 will
fail if initiated from Series 90 PLCs.
HMI and External Communication Devices
All external communication devices that interact with the ENIU
should be checked for compatibility with ENIU slot locations
other than slot 1. Problems may arise with, but are not limited
to, initial connection sequences and fault reporting. Machine
Edition View users should select “GE SRTP” as their
communications driver – it can communicate with a ENIU in
any slot.
Programmer Connection
The programmer can communicate with the NIU via serial port
1, serial port 2, or the backplane-based Ethernet interface.
Connecting a programmer via an Ethernet TCP/IP network
requires a CAT5 standard Ethernet cable with RJ-45
connectors.
Before connecting the programmer and ENIU to the Ethernet
TCP/IP network, set the IP address using the Initial IP
Address software tool. After setting the IP address, connect
the RX3i and the computer running the programming software
to the Ethernet Interface. For detailed information on
programmer connection via Ethernet TCP/IP, refer to the
TCP/IP Ethernet Communications for PACSystems User’s
Manual, GFK-2224.

directly to the NIU, there is no need to specify the
Backplane/Slot location. For upgrades to Intelligent Option
modules (the IC695ETM001, for example), which are
performed indirectly via the NIU serial port, you must
specify a backplane/slot location.

Machine Edition automatically populates the Ethernet NIU
target in the folder with the required application code blocks,
and partially prepoulates the EGD Exchanges that are
required for ENIU operation.
The NIU verifies the actual module and backplane
configuration at power-up and periodically during operation.
The actual configuration must be the same as the
programmed configuration. Deviations are reported to the NIU
alarm processor function for configured fault response. Refer
to the Proficy Machine Edition Logic Developer-PLC Getting

Subject
Description
Sequence Store
failure caused by
incorrect module in
slot when
configuration
downloaded
If a Discrete Output module was installed and a configuration was stored that contained
a different type of module in the corresponding slot, a Sequence Store failure occurred
and the store operation was terminated. A configuration mismatch fault was logged.
Hot Swapping some
Analog modules
slowly result in
modules not being
recognized
Occasionally during a hot insertion (hot swap) of IC695 Non-Isolated Analog Input
Modules, input channels may take up to 2 seconds to reflect actual input values after
the module ok bit is enabled in the module status word. This only occurs when hot
insertion has been done slowly (i.e. approximately 1.5 seconds to insert the module)
Ethernet Disconnect
During Word for Word
Change
If the Ethernet connection is broken during a word–for-word change, the programmer
may not allow a subsequent word-for-word change after reconnecting.
Simultaneous Clears,
Loads and Stores Not
Supported
Multiple programmers may not change ENIU contents at the same time. The
programming software may generate an error during the operation. Simultaneous
loads from a single ENIU are allowed.
Power Cycle During
Write to Flash
The ENIU is configured to power up from flash and if is power-cycled while writing to
flash, a fault is generated on power up.
Hardware
Configuration Not
Equal After Changing
Target Name
If a hardware configuration is stored to flash and the name of the target is subsequently
changed in the programming software, the hardware configuration will go Not Equal
and will not Verify as equal.
PLC and IO Fault
Tables May Need to be
Cleared Twice to Clear
Faulted State
Both PLC and IO fault tables may need to be cleared to take the ENIU out of Stop/Fault
mode. If one of the tables contains a recurring fault, the order in which the tables is
cleared may be significant. Recommendation: if the ENIU is still in Stop/Fault mode
after both tables are cleared, try clearing the fault tables again.
Setting Force On/Off
by Storing Initial Value
After a force on or force off has been stored to the ENIU, it cannot be switched from
force on to force off or vice-versa by downloading initial values. Recommendation: turn
off the force by doing a download, and then change the force on or off by another
Recommendation: go offline and then back online again.

Programs Returned as
Zero
The SNP request Return Controller Type and ID currently returns the number of active
programs as zero.
Serial I/O Failure at
115K During Heavy
Interrupt Load
Rarely, data corruption errors occur during serial communications when running at
115K if there is a heavy interrupt load on the ENIU. Recommendation: under heavy
load applications, restrict serial communications to 57K or lower.
SNP ID not always
provided
Unlike the Series 90-30, the RX3i ENIU’s SNP ID does not appear in the Machine
Edition programmer Show Status display. Service Request 11 will always return zeros.
Second programmer
can change logic
while in Test & Edit
mode
While currently active in a Test and Edit session using Machine Edition on one PC,
Machine Edition running on another PC is not prevented from storing new logic to the
ENIU.
ENIU may not detect
low-battery condition
PACSystems ENIUs may not detect a low-battery condition early enough to provide a
meaningful warning to replace the battery. A battery with very low capacity may still
have a terminal voltage high enough to report that it is a good battery. When the battery
starts supplying the memory power (battery backup), the battery voltage quickly drops
to unacceptable levels, and it may fail.
Recommendation: replace batteries in accordance with the guidelines provided in the
CPU Reference Manual, GFK-2222.
Two loss of module
faults for Universal
Analog Module
Occasionally, the hot removal of the Universal Analog Input Module (IC695ALG600)
results in two “Loss of I/O Module” faults instead of one.
Power up of Series 9030 HSC module may
take up to 20 seconds
As power is applied to a 90-30 High-Speed Counter, the "module ready" bit in the
status bits returned each sweep from the module may not be set for as long as 20
seconds after the first ENIU sweep, even though there is no "loss of module" indication.
I/O data exchanged with the module is not meaningful until the module has set this bit.
Info fault at power up
Intermittently during power-up, an Informational non-critical ENIU software fault may be
generated with fault extra data of 01 91 01 D6. This fault has no effect on the normal
operation of the ENIU. But if the hardware watchdog timer expires after this fault and
before power has been cycled again, the outputs of I/O modules may hold their last
state, rather than defaulting to zero.
Extended Memory
Types for I/O Triggers
%R, %W and %M cannot be used as I/O triggers.
Possible Machine
Editioninability to
connect
Infrequently, an attempt to connect a programmer to an ENIU via Ethernet is
unsuccessful. The normal connection retry dialog is not displayed. Recommendation:
Reboot the computer that is running the programmer.
SNP Update Datagram
message
If an Update Datagram message requests 6 or fewer bits or bytes of data, the ENIU
returns a Completion Ack without Text Buffer. The protocol specifies that the returned
data should be in the Completion Ack message, but it may not be.
GBC30 may not
resume operation
after power cycle
In rare instances, a GBC30 in an expansion backplane may not resume normal
operation after a power cycle of either the expansion backplane or the main backplane.
Configuration of thirdparty modules
Do not specify a length of 0 in the configuration of a third-party module. The module
will not work properly in the system.
Power supply status
after ENIU firmware
update
The ENIU reports a “Loss of or missing option module” fault for the IC695PSD140 RX3i
power supply following an update of ENIU firmware. The slot appears empty in the
programmer’s online status detail view. The power supply continues to operate
normally. Recommendation: Power cycle to restore normal status reporting.
Power supply status
after power cycling
Rarely, turning a power supply on or off may not result in an add or loss fault. Also, the
slot will appear empty in the programmer’s online status detail view. The power supply
continues to operate normally. Power cycle to restore normal status reporting.

Subject
Description
Don’t use multiple
targets
If the hardware configuration is stored from one target and logic is stored from a
different target, powering-up from flash will not work. The observed behavior is that,
following a power up from flash, Machine Editionreports hardware configuration and
logic "not equal".
Missing “Loss of
terminal block” fault
The IC695ALG600/608/616 analog input modules do not produce a “Loss of terminal
block” fault if the hardware configuration is stored or the module is hot-inserted when
the terminal block is not locked into place.
Sequence Store
Failure
Writing a very large hardware configuration to flash may cause a “PLC Sequence Store
Failure” error. To work around this error, either:
1. Perform an explicit clear of flash prior to performing the write.
2. Increase the operation timeout used by Machine Editionprior to performing the
write.
IC694MDL754: Must
configure module
status bits
Always configure 16 bits of module status when using this module. Configuring 0 bits
of module status will result in invalid data in the module’s ESCP status bits.
PID algorithm
If bit 2 is set to 1 and bit 0 is set to 1, the product will operate in a manner opposite to
the description in user manual GFK-2222D or earlier. The derivative term is added
when it should be subtracted.
IC695ALG600 Lead
Resistance
Compensation setting
A configuration store operation fails if a channel is configured for 3-wire RTD with Lead
Resistance Compensation set to Disabled. A Loss of Module fault is logged in the I/O
Fault table at the end of the store operation. Recommendation: to recover the lost
module, change the configuration to enable Lead Resistance Compensation and
power-cycle the module.
C Toolkit
PlcMemCopy
Documentation
Incorrect
This routine does allow the destination and source pointers to be outside of reference
memory. If the destination points to discrete reference memory, overrides and
transitions are honored.
Flash clear operation
may fail unexpectedly
Occasionally flash clears may fail with a battery attached. If this occurs, remove the
battery and power cycle to resolve the issue.
WinLoader may stop
operating
On computers running Windows 2000 and using some versions of Symantec Antivirus
protection, WinLoader will "lock up" if used in advanced mode. Recovery requires
cycling the computer's power.
Storing a
Configuration w/EGD
to Mismatched Module
Prevents Future
Stores
Storing a configuration that causes a mismatch for an Ethernet module with EGD
configured causes the NIU to get into a state where all future stores will fail. The
remedy is pulling the battery and power cycling.

(Release 5.0 or later) The "Set Up Input Buffer Function" will always allocate a buffer
containing 2049 bytes. This is one byte more than previous PACSystems releases.

LD-PLC operations
To perform a download to the ENIU, you must first connect to the ENIU. The connect and
download functions are now separate in Machine Edition LD-PLC.

different IP address than the Programmer. You must enter a new IP address in the Target
Properties in the Machine Edition Inspector window before reconnecting.
Duplicate Station
Address for Modbus
Will Conflict with Other
Nodes
The default serial protocol for the RX3i is Modbus RTU. The default Station Address is 1. If
the ENIU is added to a multi-drop network, care must be taken that the ENIU is configured
with a unique Station Address. Nodes with duplicate Station Addresses on the same
network will not work correctly.

Description
Timer Operation
Care should be taken when timers (ONDTR, TMR, and OFDTR) are used in program
blocks that are NOT called every sweep. The timers accumulate time across calls to the
sub-block unless they are reset. They function like timers operating in a program with a
much slower sweep than the timers in the main program block. For program blocks that are
inactive for large periods of time, the timers should be programmed to account for this
catch up feature. Related to this are timers that are skipped because of the use of the
JUMP instruction. Timers that are skipped will NOT catch up and will therefore not
accumulate time in the same manner as if they were executed every sweep.
Large Number of
COMMREQs Sent to
Module in One Sweep
Causes Faults
A large number of COMM_REQs (typically more than 8) sent to one module in the same
sweep may cause Module Software faults to be logged in the PLC fault table. The fault
group is MOD_OTHR_SOFTWR (16t, 10h) and the error code is
COMMREQ_MB_FULL_START (2). The “FT” output of the function block is also set.
Recommendation: Spread multiple COMMREQs to the same module across multiple
sweeps so that fewer (typically 8 or less) are sent to the module in each sweep. Also,
check the FT output parameter for errors. If the FT output is set (an error has been
detected), the COMMREQ could be re-issued by the application logic.
C Block Standard Math
Functions Do Not Set
errno
In C Blocks, standard math functions (e.g. sqrt, pow, asin, acos) do not set errno to the
correct value and do not return the correct value if an invalid input is provided.
Upgrading Firmware
1.
2.
3.
Upgrading CPU firmware with the WinLoader utility may fail when multiple IO modules
are in the main rack, due to the time required to power-cycle the rack system. If the
upgrade fails, move the CPU to a rack without IO modules and restart the upgrade
process.
Winloader initial connect baud rate is fixed at 19200 baud. Note that the firmware
download will occur at 115.2K baud by default.
If you have hyperterm open on a port, and then try to use Winloader on the same port,
Winloader will often say “Waiting for Target” until the hyperterm session is closed.
Hot Swap
Hot Swap of power supplies or ENIUs is not supported in this release
Serial Port
Configuration
COMMREQs
With the following combination of circumstances, it is possible to render serial
communications with the ENIU impossible:
1. User configuration disables the Run/Stop switch
2. User configures the power up mode to Run or Last
3. Logic is stored in FLASH and user configures ENIU to load from FLASH on power up
4. User application issues COMMREQs that set the protocol on both of the serial ports to
something that does not permit communications to the Machine Editionprogrammer.
Incorrect COMMREQ
Status For Invalid
Program Name
The program name for PACSystems is always "LDPROG1". When another program name
is used in a COMMREQ accessing %L memory, an Invalid Block Name (05D5) error is
generated.
FANUC I/O Master and
Slave operation
The first operation of the scanset on the master does not work after entering RUN mode.
They work properly for subsequent scans. After downloading a new hardware configuration
and logic, a power cycle may be required to resume FANUC I/O operation.
Use Ethernet NIUs of similar performance in FANUC I/O networks.
Repeated power up/down cycles of an expansion backplane containing FANUC I/O slaves
may result in failure of the slaves’ operation, with the RDY LED off.
Lost count at power up The serial IO Processor (IC693APU305) will lose the first count after every power up or
for Serial IO Processor every time the module receives a configuration.
COMMREQ Status
Words Declared in Bit
Memory Types Must Be
Byte-Aligned
Prior to release 3.50, the CPU allowed configuration of COMMREQ Status Words in bit
memory types on a non-byte-aligned boundary. The firmware adjusted references to the
next-lowest byte boundary before updating status bits, overwriting the bits between the
alignment boundary and specified location. Now, COMMREQ Status Words in bit memory
types must be byte-aligned. Specify the appropriate aligned address (%I1) to ensure that
the utilized location is appropriate
