This addendum contains information that relates to the C30 Controller System, version 5.8x. This addendum lists a
number of information items that appear in the instruction manual GEK-113545A (revision V2) but are not included in
the current C30 operations.
The following functions and items are not yet available with the current version of the C30 relay:
• Setting groups feature.
Version 4.0x and higher releases of the C30 relay includes new hardware (CPU and CT/VT modules).
• The new CPU modules are specified with the following order codes: 9E, 9G, 9H, 9J, 9K, 9L, 9M, 9N, 9P, 9R, and 9S.
• The new CT/VT modules are specified with the following order codes: .
The following table maps the relationship between the old CPU modules to the newer versions:
The new CT/VT modules can only be used with the new CPUs (9E, 9G, 9H, 9J, 9K, 9L, 9M, 9N, 9P, 9R, and 9S), and
the old CT/VT modules can only be used with the old CPU modules (9A, 9C, 9D). To prevent any hardware mis-
matches, the new CPU and CT/VT modules have blue labels and a warning sticker stating "Attn.: Ensure CPU and
DSP module label colors are the same!". In the event that there is a mismatch between the CPU and CT/VT module,
the relay will not function and a
All other input/output modules are compatible with the new hardware.
With respect to the firmware, firmware versions 4.0x and higher are only compatible with the new CPU and CT/VT mod-
ules. Previous versions of the firmware (3.4x and earlier) are only compatible with the older CPU and CT/VT modules.
