Installation and wiring
To use a terminal as the terminal OH, assign the OH (external thermal O/L relay input) signal to an
input terminal. (Set "7" in any of Pr. 178 to Pr. 189. For details, refer to page 5-422.)
When OH signal is assigned to terminal RH
(Pr.182 = "7")
Resistor (2 W 1 kΩ)
Assign the function using Pr. 178 to Pr. 184, Pr. 187 to Pr. 189 (input terminal function selection).
When position control is selected, terminal JOG function is invalid and simple position pulse train
input terminal becomes valid.
Assign the function using Pr. 190 to Pr. 194 (output terminal function selection).
Instructions for encoder cable wiring
● Use shielded twisted pair cables (0.2 mm
terminals PG and SD, use several cables in parallel or use a thick cable, according to the wiring
To protect the cables from noise, run them away from any source of noise (such as the main circuit
and power supply voltage).
When differential line driver is set and a wiring length is 30 m or more.
The wiring length can be extended to 100 m by increasing the 5 V power supply (approximately
to 5.5 V) while using six or more 0.2 mm
cable. The voltage applied must be within power supply specifications of encoder.
