To prevent a malfunction due to noise, route the signal cables 10 cm or more away from the power cables. Also, separate the
main circuit cables at the input side from the main circuit cables at the output side.
After wiring, wire offcuts must not be left in the cabinet. Always keep the soft starter cabinet clean. When drilling mounting
holes in a cabinet etc., take caution not to allow shavings, chips and other foreign matter to enter the soft starter.
