  • Page 6 [MOUNTING PRECAUTIONS] CAUTION Use the GOT in the environment that satisfies the general specifications described in this manual. Not doing so can cause an electric shock, fire, malfunction or product damage or deterioration. When mounting the GOT to the control panel, tighten the mounting screws in the specified torque range with a Phillips-head screwdriver No.2.
  • Page 7 [MOUNTING PRECAUTIONS] WARNING When installing the supplied fittings on GT2512F-S, GT2510F-V, or GT2508F-V, tighten screws in the specified torque range (0.8 N•m to 1.0 N•m). Meld studs on the control panel to fasten the fittings. The studs must have strength adequate to withstand a tightening torque of 0.9 Nom or more. Make sure that no foreign matter such as welding waste is at and around the bases of the studs.
  • Page 8 [WIRING PRECAUTIONS] CAUTION Make sure to ground the FG terminal and LG terminal of the GOT power supply section to the protective ground conductors dedicated to the GOT with a ground resistance of 100 Ω or less. (GT21 does not have the LG terminal.) When tightening the terminal screws, use a Phillips-head screwdriver No.2.
  • Page 9 [TEST OPERATION PRECAUTIONS] WARNING Before testing the operation of a user-created monitor screen (such as turning on or off a bit device, changing the current value of a word device, changing the set value or current value of a timer or counter, and changing the current value of a buffer memory), thoroughly read the manual to fully understand the operating procedures.
  • Page 10 Before touching the unit, always touch grounded metals, etc. to discharge static electricity from human body, etc. Not doing so can cause the unit to fail or malfunction.
