Introduction
This document contains information that is not available in any other publication; therefore, we recommend you save it
for future reference. This document discusses the features of the newly released firmware version 9.00 for current CPU
modules IC693CPU351 and IC693CPU352, as well as for the new CPU, IC693CPU363.
New Features and Functionality of Firmware Release 9.00
•
Software Floating-Point. The CPU351 and CPU363 support all of the floating-point function blocks that are
currently supported by the CPU352. They are implemented in firmware using floating point emulation. These
Floating-Point math function blocks are described in the IC693 PLC Reference Manual. The CPU352 continues to
support Floating-Point math via its built-in math coprocessor. The CPU352 offers a speed advantage over the other
two in performing math functions.
•
User memory totals 240K bytes. %R, %AI, and %AQ references are configurable up to 16K of %R, 8K of %AI
and 8K of %AQ memory using the MS-DOS PLC programming software, version 9.02. These three references
will be configurable up to 32K in the next release (version 2.2) of the Windows PLC programming software.
Configuration instructions for this feature are described in the MS-DOS IC693 Programming Software User’s
Manual, and will be included in on-line help in the future release of the Windows PLC Programming Software,
version 2.2.
•
Sequential Event Recorder. A new function block, the Sequential Event Recorder, is available in firmware
release 9.00. This function block can be used to record up to 1024 samples of 32 individual discrete (bit)
references. This function block is described in the IC693 PLC Reference Manual.

or Sequential Function Chart (SFC) subroutines.
•
Version 4.00 of the C toolkit must be used for C programming.
•
The MS-DOS PLC Programming Software Version 9.02 or later must be used to take advantage of the new features
introduced in firmware release 9.00. These new features are listed in the section “New Features and Functionality
of Firmware Release 9.00.” Note that the CPU363 can be configured with the MS-DOS PLC Programming
Software Version 9.01, but only features prior to firmware release 9.00 are supported in that software version.
Operating Notes
User Flash Contents
User information, consisting of program, configuration, CPU ID (used for SNP communications), and status tables in
RAM memory, will automatically be cleared if the CPU firmware in flash memory is changed. So you will need to
restore these if upgrading firmware. A recommended procedure is to first back up your user information from RAM
memory to Flash memory. Then write your new firmware to Flash memory (firmware is stored in a different location in
Flash memory than that used for storing user information such as program, configuration, etc.). Finally, write your user
information back out of Flash into RAM memory. As an alternative, your user information (program, configuration,
etc.) can be restored from a computer-based backup program folder using your PLC programming software. The SNP
ID must be set separately, using the programming software or the Hand-Held Programmer (HHP).

Firmware Upgrade Procedure
Note: The Model 35x and 36x CPU operating firmware is stored in FLASH memory. The firmware upgrade is provided
on a floppy disk and must be serially downloaded from a Personal Computer. An IBM AT personal computer or better
PC with a minimum 640K of RAM, one 3.5” floppy drive, MS-DOS version 3.3 or later (or Windows 95 or later), a
hard drive, and one RS-232 serial port is required. In addition, a serial cable is required. The following serial cable kit is
available from GE Fanuc:
IC690ACC901 Mini Converter Kit with cable (RS-232/RS-485)
Optionally, the cable can be assembled from the following parts:
IC690ACC900 RS-232 to RS-485/422 Converter Unit
IC693CBL303 15 Pin RS-485 Serial Cable
IC690CBL705 25 Pin RS-232 Serial Cable *
IC690CBL702 9 Pin RS-232 Serial Cable *
* Only one of these cables is required. Selection depends on PC Serial Port Connector.
Changing Firmware to an Earlier Version
If you have a CPU351 or CPU352 with firmware version 9.00, and you desire to install a pre-9.00 version of firmware,
then a special upgrade disk must be obtained from GE Fanuc. Do not attempt to use a firmware version 8.10 or earlier
upgrade disk on a CPU that contains firmware version 9.00. Note that pre-9.00 firmware versions do not support the
CPU363.
Option Module Revision Requirements
•
Ethernet Interface Module Compatibility. All IC693 Ethernet Interface (IC693CMM321) modules used with
these CPUs should be updated to IC693CMM321 firmware release 1.10 or later. This is also a requirement of the
TCP/IP Ethernet version of the MS-DOS programming software. During a Run Mode Store (Alt + S hot key
combination) of a large program block (greater than 14 kilobytes), the Ethernet module may time out, causing
communications to fail. Changing the Communications Window to Run-to-Completion mode, or storing the
program in Stop mode, will allow the store to take place successfully.
•
FBC Compatibility. FBC version 3 or later is required for these CPUs.
•
GCM Compatibility. Fab board R08 or later of the IC693CMM301 should be used with the CPU352.
Writing Flash Using a Serial Programmer
When writing very large programs to flash memory, it may be necessary to increase the Windows PLC programming
software request timeout value to avoid receiving a request timeout message. An upper bound of 25 seconds is typically
satisfactory
Problems Resolved in Firmware Version 9.00
Keyswitch Configured as RUN/STOP Switch
Previously, when the keyswitch was configured as a RUN/STOP switch, moving the keyswitch to the STOP position
would not affect the current PLC state if the PLC was already in either STOP NO/IO or STOP IO SCAN mode. In
firmware version 9.00, the keyswitch will now change the PLC to STOP IO SCAN or STOP NO/IO based on the
configured value, even if the PLC is already in a “STOP” mode.
Storing IC693CMM321 Configuration with Windows PLC Programming Software Issue
It was possible to get a watchdog time-out failure when storing an IC693CMM321 configuration with the Windows
PLC Programming software, Version 2.1 or earlier. This problem has been corrected in firmware version 9.00.
RET_PBLOCK_LIST
The RET_PBLOCK_LIST service request would only function correctly with 24 or less subroutines in the program in
firmware version 8.00. The request now functions correctly with any number of subroutines in version 9.00.

Service Request #7
SVC REQ #7 would allow ladder logic to set certain illegal dates such as 2/29/01. Illegal dates are no longer allowed to
be entered by the user program.
Changes to Documentation
The IC69* PLC Serial Communications User’s Manual will be updated to describe the Generic Output and pager
enunciation feature in its next revision (rev D). These features are supported by the CPU351, CPU352, and CPU363
CPUs’ embedded serial ports.
Sending a COMM_REQ to the CPU351, CPU352, or CPU363 serial ports.
When sending a Communications Request (COMM_REQ) to the CPU351, CPU352, or CPU363 serial ports, the
SYSID of the COMM_REQ must be 1 and the TASK ID must be 19 decimal for port 1 or 20 decimal for port 2.
RTU
With the above exception about the SYSID and TASK ID fields, using RTU on the CPU351, CPU352, or CPU363
serial ports is the same as using RTU on a CCM, which is described in the IC69* PLC Serial Communications User’s
Manual.
Generic Output
Generic Output is selected for Port 1 or Port 2 of the CPU351, CPU352, or CPU363 CPUs by choosing “CUSTOM” as
the mode for the port in the CPU Configuration and storing this to the PLC. Generic Output is accomplished by using
the put string COMM_REQ. Using the autodial COMM_REQ with the put string COMM_REQ accomplishes the
pager enunciation feature as described below.
Using Pager Enunciation and Generic Output
This feature allows the CPU351, CPU352, and CPU363 CPUs to automatically dial a pager via modem and send a
specified byte string from Serial Port 1 or 2. Pager dialing and message transmission are set up by COMM_REQ
functions in the ladder logic.
Note
To implement this feature, Serial Port 2 must be configured as a CUSTOM port as mentioned above
in the “Generic Output” item.
Pager enunciation is implemented by three commands, requiring three COMM_REQ command blocks:
Autodial: 04400 (1130H) -Dials the modem. This command works the same way that the SNP Master Autodial
command 7400 does.
Put string: 04401 (1131H) - Specifies an ASCII string, from 1 to 250 bytes in length, to send from the serial port.
Autodial: 04400 (1130H) - It is the responsibility of the PLC application program to hang up the phone connection.
This is accomplished by reissuing the autodial command and sending the hang-up command string.

Autodial Command Block
The Autodial command automatically transmits an Escape sequence that follows the Hayes convention. If you are using
a modem that does not support the Hayes convention, you may be able to use the Put String command to dial the
modem.
Examples of commonly used command strings for Hayes-compatible modems are listed below:

Put String Command Block
Table 6-2 lists a sample COMM_REQ command block that sends the data string, “hello world” using the Put String
command (04401). A maximum transmit timeout of 30 seconds is specified. The string data begins at Word 10. This
command is similar to the Autodial command except that Put String does not send the escape sequence for Hayescompatible modems.
The Maximum Transmit Timeout field specifies, in seconds, the maximum time interval the COMM_REQ will wait for
the entire string to be sent. If this time is set to 0, a default value of 4 seconds plus the time required to transmit the
number of characters is used. If the string is not transmitted during the specified interval or the default interval, an error
code is generated.
The Number of Bytes in Command String field specifies the length of the command string to be sent. This length
includes all characters. A status code indicating successful transmission will be returned when the string has been
completely sent out the serial port.
