Guide

Preface
This guide describes the PC-O984-680/685 and PC-0984-780/785 Programmable
Logic Controllers and their available options, together with procedures for system
planning and installation.
Throughout this manual, the terms Programmable Controller,Programmable Logic
Controller,and PC have been abbreviated to icontroller for the sake of brevity. For
clarity and your convenience, the Models PC-0984-680, -685, -780, and -785 are
referred to in context as the 984-680 (or 780) or simply 685 or 785, etc. Chapter 1
deals specifically with the Models 680 and 685; Chapter 2, with the Models 780 and
785. Since the remaining chapters 3-6 discuss components and functions common to
all four devices, the 680/685/780/785 is referred to simply as the controlleror the
984 in these four chapters. Any topic unique to a particular device is clearly noted.

Note This manual describes system planning and installation informationfor the
Modicon 680, 685, 780, and 785 controllers, exclusive of Modbus PlusRv
communications(in the case of the 685 and 785). Information regarding the Model 685
and 785 controllers in connection with a Modbus Plusm network, including DIP switch
settings and network system configuration, is found in GM-MBPL-001, Rev. A, Modicon
Modbus Plus Network Planning and Installation Guide.

Objectives
This manual will help you plan, configure, mount, wire, connect, check out, and
troubleshoot your 984 slot-mount controller system, including 984/800 Series Remote
I/O. After reading this book:
A Control Engineer will be able to identify and physically plan the location and
mounting of system components.
A Plant Electrician/Installer will be able to install, power-up, and check out the
system.
A Maintenance Technician will be able to recognize, locate, identify, and resolve or
report system failures.

How To Use This Manual


Chapter 1 describes the 984-680/685 controller system and its functions.
Chapter 2 describes the 984-780/785 controller system and its functions.
Chapter 3 offers informationfor planning your installation with local I/O.
Chapter 4 is an installation procedure for your controllerwith local I/O.
Chapter 5 offers informationfor planning your Remote I/O configuration and installation.
Chapter 6 is a collection of topical installation procedures for your Remote I/O.
Appendix A gives system specifications including Remote I/O cable and accessories.
Appendix 6 describes post-installation Remote I/O cable checking techniques and
procedures.
Appendix C gives Error Codes, Customer Service/Technical Support telephone
numbers, and modbus cable connector pinouts.
