Backplanes, power supplies and system modules As listed in the PACSystems RX3i System Manual, GFK-2314D or later. Series 90-30 Expansion Rack Compatibility The PACSystems RX3i supports Series 90-30 expansion racks, both local and remote. PACSystems RX3i CPUs do not operate in a Series 90-30 Rack. Note: The RUN LED on the 90-30 Power Supply located in an expansion rack (both local and remote) will not be illuminated when the RX3i System is in RUN mode and there are only input modules in the expansion rack. The RUN LED on the 90-30 Power Supply located in an expansion rack (both local and remote) will be illuminated when the RX3i System is in RUN mode and there are output modules in the expansion rack. Series 90-30 Main Rack Compatibility Series 90-30 Main Racks cannot be used in a PACSystems RX3i system. Series 90-30 CPUs do not operate in PACSystems RX3i Racks.

COMMREQ to PBM300 In Release 3.0, the behavior of the COMMREQ fault output on a COMMREQ sent to the PROFIBUS master module IC695PBM300 was changed to be compatible with the Series 90-30 CPU366 PROFIBUS Master. Previously, the fault output was enabled when the module received a COMMREQ and it was busy. Now, the busy condition does not result in the fault output being enabled. Recommended IC200ALG240 revision When a VersaMax* system Genius* Network Interface Unit (IC200GBI001) operates with a Genius Bus Controller located in a PACSystems RX3i, and the VersaMax system contains an IC200ALG240 Analog Input Module, it is recommended to update the IC200ALG240 firmware to Revision 1.10 or later. However, it is preferable to update the IC200ALG240 firmware to Revision 1.20, which contains resolutions for all issues found after Revision 1.10. Upgrade kits are available at http://www.ge-ip.com/support. Use firmware update kit 44A752313-G01 to update the IC200ALG240 firmware to Revision 1.10, or upgrade kit 44A752313-G02 to update the IC200ALG240 firmware to Revision 1.20. 5H6 Configuration of IC694MDL754 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. RX3i CPU320 5 GFK-2488K New Features and Enhancements Low Battery Detection The CPU Battery Backup circuit of hardware revisions –Fx or later is modified to detect low battery conditions. The following table lists the battery voltage levels and corresponding user indications. For the low battery detection circuit to function properly, an RX3i CPU Lithium Smart Battery (IC695ACC302) must be used. (Expected availability in 4th quarter, 2010) Battery Voltage Battery Voltage >2.5V Status of Battery BATTERY LED Status Normal Battery OFF 2V < Battery Voltage <2.5V Battery Low BLINK Battery Voltage <2V Battery Failed ON Compliance The new hardware is European RoHS compliant. Restrictions and Open Issues in Release 6.02 Subject Description CPU OK LED blinks and CPU communications stop after a power cycle with a battery connected and starting from RAM Very rarely, after experiencing two consecutive rapid power cycles, the CPU may fail to start properly. When this occurs, the CPU OK LED blinks continuously (Stop-halt mode) and any communication links to the CPU will be disconnected. To recover the controller, disconnect the battery and power-cycle. The Ethernet module fails to exchange EGD properly during power cycling Very rarely, after experiencing multiple rapid power cycles, the CPU may fail to establish communication with one or more modules in the backplane at power up. When this occurs, several pairs of "Loss of, or missing option module" and "Reset of option module" faults will be logged in the controller fault table. If the module is an ETM, an event 30H is recorded in its station manager event log. To recover from this issue, cycle power again. Loss of Power Supplies after firmware update A Loss of Power Supplies after firmware update may occur. This does not happen with all firmware updates and will not occur if the system is power cycled after the firmware upgrade has completed. The following fault is displayed when this issue occurs: Loss of, or missing option module Error Code 36 Group 4 Action 3:Fatal Task Num 9 Fault Extra Data: 01 58 02 4f 80 08 0a 07 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 To correct this condition, power cycle the system. Battery installation When installing a battery, when there currently is no battery installed, the battery must be installed while the CPU has power. Failing to follow this procedure could result in the CPU not powering up. If a battery is installed while power is off (and there was no battery previously installed), and the CPU fails to power up, simply remove the battery, power cycle the CPU and then install the battery. RX3i CPU320 6 GFK-2488K Subject Description Hot Swapping some analog modules slowly may 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 delay has only occurred when the 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 due to the fact that it thinks another programmer is currently attached. If this occurs, you should go offline and then back online again. Simultaneous Clears, Loads and Stores not supported. Currently, PACSystems CPUs do not support multiple programmers changing CPU contents at the same time. The programming software may generate an error during the operation. Simultaneous loads from a single CPU are allowed. Hardware configuration Not Equal after changing target name. If you store a hardware configuration to flash that sets “Logic/Config Power up Source” to “Always Flash” or “Conditional Flash” and then subsequently changes the name of the target in the programming software, the hardware configuration will go Not Equal and will not Verify as equal. Controller and IO Fault Tables may need to be cleared twice to clear faulted state. Both Controller and IO fault tables may need to be cleared to take the CPU out of Stop/Fault mode. If one of the tables contains a recurring fault, the order in which the tables are cleared may be significant. If the CPU 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. Once a force on or force off has been stored to the controller, you cannot switch from force on to force off or vice-versa directly by downloading initial values. To turn off the force on or off, download the project. Number of active programs returned as zero. The SNP request Return Controller Type and ID currently returns the number of active programs as zero. Serial I/O fails at 115K during heavy interrupt load Rare data corruption errors have been seen on serial communications when running at 115K under heavy interrupt load on the controller. Under heavy load applications, users should restrict serial communications to 57K or lower. SNP ID not always provided Unlike the Series 90-30, the RX3i CPU’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 controller. Must have logic if powering-up from flash If the application will configure the CPU to retrieve the contents of flash memory at power-up, be sure to include logic along with hardware configuration when saving to flash memory. CPU may not detect lowbattery condition A battery with very low capacity may still have a terminal voltage high enough to report that it is a good battery. In this case, when the battery starts supplying the memory power (battery backup), the battery voltage quickly drops to unacceptable levels, with little warning to the user before failure.To insure against data loss, users should replace batteries in accordance with the guidelines provided in the CPU Reference Manual, GFK-2222. Additionally, users could save logic and hardware configuration to flash. 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 90-30 HSC module may take as long as 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 controller sweep, even though there is no Loss of Module indication. I/O data exchanged with the module is not meaningful until this bit is set by the module. For details, see “Data Transfer Between High Speed Counter and CPU” in the Series 90-30 High Speed Counter User’s Manual, GFK0293C. RX3i CPU320 Subject 7 GFK-2488K Description Informational fault at power up Intermittently during power-up, an Informational non-critical CPU software fault may be generated with fault extra data of 01 91 01 D6. This fault will have no effect on the normal operation of the controller. But, if the hardware watchdog timer expires after this fault and before power has been cycled again, then the outputs of I/O modules may hold their last state, rather than defaulting to zero. Extended memory types for IO triggers %R, %W and %M cannot be used as IO triggers. Possible Machine Edition inability to connect Infrequently, an attempt to connect a programmer to an RX3i via Ethernet will be unsuccessful. The normal connection retry dialog will not be displayed. Rebooting the computer that is running the programmer will resolve the behavior. SNP Update Datagram message If an Update Datagram message requests 6 or less bits or bytes of data, the controlleri will return a Completion Ack message without Text Buffer. The protocol specifies that the returned data will 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 rack may not resume normal operation after a power cycle of either the expansion rack or the main rack. To restore GBC operation, power cycle the rack again. Configuration of third-party 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 CPU firmware update The controller will report a Loss of or Missing Option Module fault for the IC695PSD140 RX3i power supply following an update of CPU firmware. 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. 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. Don’t use multiple targets In a system in which 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 Edition reports 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 when hardware configuration is stored or the module is hotinserted, and the terminal block is not locked into place. Sequence Store failure. When downloading projects with very large hardware configurations or which use large amounts of user memory, it is possible to encounter a controller Sequence Store Failure error when writing the configuration to flash. To work around this error, either or both of the following actions may be helpful: 1. Perform an explicit clear of flash prior to performing the write. 2. Increase the operation timeout used by Machine Edition prior to performing the write. This is done by expanding the Additional Configuration in the Inspector window for the target controller, and adjusting the Request Timeout. The timeout may need to be increased to as much as 60,000 msec, depending on the amount of memory used and the condition of the flash memory. 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. IC695ALG600 Lead Resistance Compensation setting A configuration store operation will fail if a channel is configured for 3-wire RTD and Lead Resistance Compensation is set to Disabled. A Loss of Module fault will be logged in the I/O Fault table at the end of the store operation. To recover the lost module, the configuration must be changed to enable Lead Resistance Compensation and module must be power cycled. RX3i CPU320 8 GFK-2488K Subject Description 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 will be honored. Note that the header for PlcMemCopy has been updated in Release 3.50 of the C toolkit. WinLoader may stop operating On computers running Windows 2000 and using some versions of Symantec Antivirus protection, WinLoader will fail if used in advanced mode. Recovery requires cycling the computer's power. Logic and HWC not equal after power cycle If the Hardware Configuration from Target 1, with Logic/Configuration Power-up Source and Data Source both set to “Always from Flash,” is stored in Flash, then Logic and Hardware Config from Target 2, with Logic/Configuration Power-up Source both set to “Always from RAM,” is stored to RAM and there is a good battery, then when power is cycled the programmer may show that Logic and Hardware Config are not equal. The remedy is to clear Flash and then store the Logic and Hardware Config from Target 2. WinLoader does not detect PC COM port in use when upgrading PACSystems CPU. WinLoader does not detect if a PC's COM port is in use when attempting to connect to a PACSystems CPU to perform a firmware upgrade. If the port is already in use it displays the status "trying to connect" followed by "waiting for target." To proceed with the upgrade, press the "abort" button and disconnect the other application that is using the COM port. CPU320, CRU320 user application and values cleared after power cycle Under rare circumstances during multiple rapid power cycles the CPU320/CRU320 will power up with the user application and data in RAM cleared. There will be a “Corrupted user memory” fault in the controller fault table (Group 130, Error code 1). This will not occur if the user application and data are loaded from flash on power-up (“Always Flash” or “Conditional Flash”). WinLoader does not display error when it can't connect serially with PACS CPU. WinLoader does not display an error message if it cannot connect to the PACS CPU when attempting to connect to a PACSystems CPU to perform a firmware upgrade. This occurs if the cable is physically not connected to the CPU or if the CPU's serial port is not configured for the same baud as WinLoader. In this case Winloader displays the status "trying to connect" followed by "waiting for target." To proceed with the upgrade, press the "abort" button and correct the cable or baud rate setting. RX3i CPU320 9 GFK-2488K Operational Notes Subject Description Block name now provided in User Application faults In firmware versions earlier than 6.01, the fault entry for a non-fatal application fault (for example, reference-out-of-range) provided numeric information to identify the logic block causing the error. However, the user did not have a way to correlate the numeric information with the name of the block. Firmware versions 6.01 and later include the first 12 characters of the block name in the fault entry. RUN LED is not illuminated on the Series 90-30 power supply for an RX3i remote/expansion rack with input modules only When a remote or expansion baseplate is used with the RX3i, the RUN LED on the Series 90-30 power supply for that baseplate is illuminated when the system is in Run mode only if the rack contains at least one output module. If the rack contains input modules only, the RUN LED is not illuminated. This is due to the way input modules are managed in the PACSystems design and does not indicate an error. In Release 5.00 or later, if an attempt is made to download a C block containing undefined symbols, the download will fail. Machine Edition will display the following message in the Feedback Zone: Error 8097: Controller Error – Controller aborted the request [0x05][0xFF] Prior to Release 5.00, C blocks containing undefined symbols could be successfully downloaded, but if they were executed the CPU would transition to Stop/Halt mode. For details, see “C Toolkit Compatibility” on page 4. Undefined symbols in C blocks 9H Length of serial I/O buffer (Release 5.0 or later) The "Set Up Input Buffer Function" always allocates a buffer containing 2049 bytes. This is one byte more than previous PACSystems releases. Changing IP address of Ethernet interface while connected Storing a hardware configuration with a new IP address to the RX3i while connected via Ethernet will succeed, then immediately disconnect because the RX3i is now using a 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 RX3i is added to a multi-drop network, care must be taken that the RX3i is configured with a unique Station Address. Nodes with duplicate Station Addresses on the same network will not work correctly. 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. This means that 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 in such a manner as 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. Constant Sweep Constant Sweep time, when used, should be set at least 10 milliseconds greater than the normal sweep time to avoid any over-sweep conditions when monitoring or performing on-line changes with the programmer. Window completion faults will occur if the constant sweep setting is not high enough. Large number of COMMREQs sent to module in one sweep causes faults A large number of COMMREQs (typically greater than 8) sent to a given board in the same sweep may cause Module Software faults to be logged in the RX3i fault table. The fault group is MOD_OTHR_SOFTWR (16t, 10h) and the error code is COMMREQ_MB_FULL_START (2). When this occurs, the “FT” output of the function block will also be set. To prevent this situation, COMMREQs issued to a given board should be spread across multiple sweeps so that only a limited number (typically 8 or less) of COMMREQs are sent to a given board in each sweep. In addition, the FT output parameter should be checked for errors. If the FT output is set (meaning an error has been detected), the COMM_REQ could be re-issued by the application logic. RX3i CPU320 10 GFK-2488K Subject Description 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 The process of upgrading the CPU firmware with the WinLoader utility may fail when multiple IO modules are in the main rack, due to the time it takes to power cycle the rack system. If the upgrade process 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. Note that 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 CPUs is not supported. Serial port configuration COMMREQs With the following combination of circumstances, it is possible to render serial communications with the CPU impossible: User configuration disables the Run/Stop switch User configures the power up mode to Run or Last Logic is stored in FLASH and user configures CPU to load from FLASH on power up User application issues COMMREQs that set the protocol on both of the serial ports to something that does not permit communications to the Machine Edition programmer. Incorrect COMMREQ status for invalid program name The program name for PACSystems is always "LDPROG1". When another program name is used in a COMM_REQ accessing %L memory, an Invalid Block Name (05D5) error is generated. FANUC I/O Master and Slave operation Scan sets on the master do not work properly for the first operation of the scan set after entering RUN mode. They do 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 controllers of similar performance in FANUC I/O networks. If a master or slave is located in an RX3i system, the other controllers should be RX3i or Series 90-30 CPU374. Repeated power up/down cycles of an expansion rack containing FANUC I/O slaves may result in failure of the slaves’ operation, with the RDY LED off. Lost count at power up for Serial IO Processor The serial IO Processor (IC693APU305) will lose the first count after every power up or every time the module receives a configuration. COMMREQ status words declared in bit memory types must be byte-aligned In previous releases, the CPU allowed configuration of COMMREQ Status Words in bit memory types on a non-byte-aligned boundary. Even though the given reference was not byte-aligned, the firmware would adjust it the next-lowest byte boundary before updating status bits, overwriting the bits between the alignment boundary and specified location. To ensure that the application operates as expected, release 3.50 requires configuration of COMMREQ Status Words in bit memory types to be byte-aligned. For example if the user specified status bit location of %I3, the CPU aligns the status bit location at %I1. Release 3.50 firmware requires the user to specify the appropriate aligned address (%I1) to ensure that the utilized location is appropriate for their application.

RX3i CPU320 11 GFK-2488K Subject Description STOP and RUN mode transition priority The PACSystems CPU receives requests to change between stop and run mode from many different sources. These include (but are not limited to) Proficy Machine Edition, HMIs, the user application, and the RUN/STOP switch. Since there are many potential sources for a mode change request, it is possible to receive a new mode change request while another is already in progress. When this occurs, the CPU evaluates the priority of the new mode change request with the mode change that is in progress. If the new mode change request has an equal or higher priority than the one already in progress, the CPU transitions to the new mode instead of the one in progress. If, however, the new mode change request has a lower priority than the one in progress, the new mode request is discarded and the CPU completes the mode change that is in progress. The sweep mode priorities are (listed from highest to lowest priority): STOP HALT, STOP FAULT, STOP, and RUN. (Note: The IO ENABLED/DISABLED state is not part of the mode priority evaluation.) For example, a CPU is in RUN IO ENABLED mode and a Service Request 13 function block is executed to place the CPU into STOP IO DISABLED mode. Before the transition to STOP IO DISABLED is completed, the RUN/STOP switch is changed from RUN IO ENABLED to RUN IO DISABLED. In this case, the CPU ignores the new request from the RUN/STOP switch to go to RUN IO DISABLED mode because it is already processing a request to go to STOP IO DISABLED mode and STOP mode has a higher priority than RUN mode. Suspend IO Function Block does not Suspend EGD In a Series 90-70 the SUSPEND_IO function block suspends EGD in addition to IO Scan. In PACSystems controllers the SUSPEND IO only suspends IO Scan.
