  • Page 3: Safety Precautions

    (Read these precautions before using this product.) Before using MELSEC iQ-R series programmable controllers, please read the manuals for the product and the relevant manuals introduced in those manuals carefully, and pay full attention to safety to handle the product correctly.
  • Page 4 [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 the external power supply or the programmable controller. 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 [Design Precautions] WARNING ● Especially, when a remote programmable controller is controlled by an external device, immediate action cannot be taken if a problem occurs in the programmable controller due to a communication failure. To prevent this, configure an interlock circuit in the program, and determine corrective actions to be taken between the external device and CPU module in case of a communication failure.
  • Page 6 [Design Precautions] WARNING [Precautions for using high-speed counter modules and flexible high-speed I/O control modules] ● Outputs may remain on or off due to a failure of a transistor for external output. Configure an external circuit for monitoring output signals that could cause a serious accident. [Precautions for using flexible high-speed I/O control modules] ●...
  • Page 7 [Design Precautions] WARNING [Precautions for using Motion CPU modules and Simple Motion modules] ● Configure safety circuits external to the programmable controller to ensure that the entire system operates safely even when a fault occurs in the external power supply or the programmable controller. Failure to do so may result in an accident due to an incorrect output or malfunction.
  • Page 8 [Design Precautions] WARNING [Precautions for using Safety CPUs] ● When the safety programmable controller detects a fault in the external power supply or itself, it turns off all outputs in the safety system. Configure an external circuit to ensure that the power source of a hazard is shut off by turning off the outputs.
  • Page 9 [Design Precautions] WARNING [Precautions for using remote head modules] ● Configure safety circuits external to the remote head module to ensure that the entire system operates safely even when a fault occurs in the external power supply or the remote head module. Failure to do so may result in an accident due to an incorrect output or malfunction.
  • Page 10 [Design Precautions] CAUTION ● Do not install the control lines or communication cables together with the main circuit lines or power cables. Keep a distance of 100mm or more between them. Failure to do so may result in malfunction due to noise. ●...
  • Page 11 [Installation Precautions] WARNING ● Shut off the external power supply (all phases) used in the system before mounting or removing the module. Failure to do so may result in electric shock or cause the module to fail or malfunction. [Precautions for using C Controller modules] ●...
  • Page 12 [Wiring Precautions] WARNING ● Shut off the external power supply (all phases) used in the system before installation and wiring. Failure to do so may result in electric shock or cause the module to fail or malfunction. ● After installation and wiring, attach a blank cover module (RG60) to each empty slot and an included extension connector protective cover to the unused extension cable connector before powering on the system for operation.
  • Page 13 [Wiring Precautions] CAUTION ● Individually ground the FG and LG terminals of the programmable controller with a ground resistance of 100 ohms or less. Failure to do so may result in electric shock or malfunction. ● Use applicable solderless terminals and tighten them within the specified torque range. If any spade solderless terminal is used, it may be disconnected when the terminal screw comes loose, resulting in failure.
  • Page 14 [Wiring Precautions] CAUTION ● Programmable controllers must be installed in control panels. Connect the main power supply to the power supply module in the control panel through a relay terminal block. Wiring and replacement of a power supply module must be performed by qualified maintenance personnel with knowledge of protection against electric shock.
  • Page 15 [Startup and Maintenance Precautions] WARNING ● Do not touch any terminal while power is on. Doing so will cause electric shock or malfunction. ● Correctly connect the battery connector. Do not charge, disassemble, heat, short-circuit, solder, or throw the battery into the fire. Also, do not expose it to liquid or strong shock. Doing so will cause the battery to produce heat, explode, ignite, or leak, resulting in injury and fire.
  • Page 16 [Startup and Maintenance Precautions] CAUTION ● Do not drop or apply shock to the battery to be installed in the module. Doing so may damage the battery, causing the battery fluid to leak inside the battery. If the battery is dropped or any shock is applied to it, dispose of it without using.
  • Page 17 [Operating Precautions] CAUTION ● When changing data and operating status, and modifying program of the running programmable controller from an external device such as a personal computer connected to an intelligent function module, read relevant manuals carefully and ensure the safety before operation. Incorrect change or modification may cause system malfunction, damage to the machines, or accidents.

  • Page 193 The power-on procedure is described below. ■ For AC and DC power Power on the programmable controller. Run the CPU module. The relay, RA2, turns on when AC power is converted to DC power. The timer, TM, turns on when the DC power connection is fully established. (The TM value shall be the time required from when RA2 turns on to when the DC power connection is fully established.
  • Page 194: Fail-Safe Measures For Programmable Controller Failure

    Fail-safe measures for programmable controller failure A CPU module and a remote head module can detect hardware failures of themselves and their memory by the self- diagnostic function. However, failures which occur in a part, such as an I/O control part, may not be detected. In this case, depending on the failure, all input or output points may turn on or off, or normal operation and safety of the control-target device may not be ensured.

    Appendix 9 Calculating Heating Value of Programmable Controller The ambient temperature inside the control panel where a programmable controller is installed must be 55 or less *1 When an extended temperature range base unit is used, the ambient temperature must be 60 or less. It is necessary to know the average power consumption (heating value) of the equipment and devices installed inside the control panel when designing a heat release structure of the panel.
  • Page 196 Power consumption of a power supply module When a power supply module with the power conversion efficiency of approximately 70%, the remaining 30% is dissipated as heat, so that 3/7 of the output power will be the power consumption. Therefore, the power consumption of a power supply module, or W , is given by the following formula: ×...
