The GE Fanuc IC698CMX016 Communication Module is a Control Memory Xchange or CMX module for the Rx7i system. This module provides pre-programmed data sharing between PLCs and connected field devices on the high-speed fiber-optic network reflective memory system. The IC698CMX016 Module can accommodate up to 256 nodes contained within a single reflective memory network, and it is compatible with the VMIC 5565 series of reflective memory devices connected to each node. Each VMIC 5565 device is connected to the 2.12 GBaud fiber-optic network in a daisy-chain loop with a fiber-optic cable, and the IC698CMX016 Communication Module can transmit field data in a configurable transmission range of 43 Megabyte per second (in 4-byte dynamic packet sizes) to 174 Megabyte per second (in 64-byte dynamic packet sizes). It has 16 MB of user memory (SDRAM) and reliable software configuration from the Machine Edition (ME) Logic Developer PLC, version 4.5 or later software.
The GE Fanuc IC698CMX016 Module has a voltage rating of 5.0 Volts DC and a maximum operating current of 1.8 Amps. On the front panel of the IC698CMX016 Module, there is an optical transceiver with 2 fiber-optic ports labelled TX and RX for transmitting and receiving field data. The IC698CMX016 Module offers user-configurable VMEbus outputs through which a transfer of data over the network is initiated, and it also offersnNetwork error detection for smooth data transfers. The IC698CMX016 Module is installed in a single slot of the Rx7i PACsystem I/O rack. It comes with 4 front-panel status/diagnostic LEDs which are the "OK," "CONFIG," "OWN DATA," and "SIGNAL DETECT" LEDs that shows the module’s operation and communication status.
