    SAFETY PRECAUTIONS (Be sure to read these instructions before using the product.) Before using this product, read this manual and the relevant manuals introduced in this manual carefully and handle the product correctly with full attention to safety. Note that these precautions apply only to this product. Refer to the user's manual of your CPU module for safety precautions on programmable controller systems.
  • Page 4: Installation Precautions

    [Design Precautions] WARNING Configure safety circuits external to the programmable controller to ensure that the entire system operates safely even when a fault occurs in a personal computer. Failure to do so may result in an accident due to an incorrect output or malfunction. (1) Emergency stop circuits, protection circuits, and protective interlock circuits for conflicting operations (such as forward/reverse rotations or upper/lower limit positioning) must be configured external to the programmable controller.
  • Page 5 CAUTION Use the board in an environment that meets the general specifications in this manual. Failure to do so may result in electric shock, fire, malfunction, or damage to or deterioration of the product. Do not directly touch any conductive parts and electronic components of the board. Doing so may cause malfunction or failure of the board.
  • Page 6: Wiring Precautions

    [Wiring Precautions] WARNING Shut off the external power supply for the system in all phases before installing the board or starting wiring. Failure to do so may result in electric shock, damage to the product, or malfunction. After installation of the board and wiring, attach the cover on the module before turning it on for operation.
  • Page 7 [Wiring Precautions] CAUTION Use a specified tool for crimping of the cable and contacting pin. Imperfect crimping may cause a malfunction. Verify the pin-out and fully insert the crimped contacting pin into the connector. Imperfect insertion may cause a failure or malfunction. Insert the wired external power supply cable into the external power supply cable connector until a click is heard.
  • Page 8 [Startup/Maintenance Precautions] CAUTION Thoroughly read the manual and ensure the safety before performing program modification during operation, forced output, operation such as RUN, STOP and PAUSE. An improper operation will result in mechanical damage or accidents. Do not disassemble or modify the board. Doing so may cause failure, malfunction, injury, or a fire.
