When the module or absolute position motor has been replaced, carry out a home position return
operation using the following method, otherwise position displacement could occur.
After writing the servo data to the Simple Motion module using programming software, switch on
the power again, then perform a home position return operation.
After maintenance and inspections are completed, confirm that the position detection of the
absolute position detector function is correct.
Do not drop or impact the battery installed to the module.
Doing so may damage the battery, causing battery liquid to leak in the battery. Do not use the
dropped or impacted battery, but dispose of it.
Do not short circuit, charge, overheat, incinerate or disassemble the batteries.
The electrolytic capacitor will generate gas during a fault, so do not place your face near the
module or servo amplifier.
The electrolytic capacitor and fan will deteriorate. Periodically replace these to prevent secondary
damage from faults. Please contact with our sales representative.
Lock the control panel and prevent access to those who are not certified to handle or install
Do not mount/remove the module and base or terminal block more than 50 times (IEC61131-2-
compliant), after the first use of the product. Failure to do so may cause malfunction.
Do not burn or break a module and servo amplifier. Doing so may cause a toxic gas.
