Thank you for choosing this Mitsubishi Inverter. Please read through this Installation Manual and the Instruction Manual to operate this inverter correctly Do not use this product until you have a full knowledge of the equipment, the safety information and the instructions.
Print Date Manual Number Revision 04/2009 pdp-gb 224739 First edition For Maximum Safety Mitsubishi transistorized inverters are not designed or manufactured to be used in equipment or systems in situations that can affect or endanger human life. When considering this product for operation in special applications such as machinery or systems used in passenger transportation, medical, aerospace, atomic power, electric power, or submarine repeating applications, please contact your nearest Mitsubishi sales representative.
This section is specifically about safety matters Do not attempt to install, operate, maintain or inspect the inverter until you have read through this Installation Guideline and appended documents carefully and can use the equipment correctly. Do not use the inverter until you have a full knowledge of the equipment, safety information and instructions.
Wiring CAUTION Do not install assemblies or components (e. g. power factor correction capacitors) on the inverter output side, which are not approved from Mitsubishi. The direction of rotation of the motor corresponds to the direction of rotation commands (STF/STR) only if the phase sequence (U, V, W) is maintained.
1 INSTALLATION OF THE INVERTER AND INSTRUCTIONS Unpack the inverter and check the capacity plate on the front cover and the rating plate on the inverter side face to ensure that the product agrees with your order and the inverter is intact. 1.1 Inverter Type A741 Rating plate example...
INSTALLATION OF THE INVERTER AND INSTRUCTIONS 1.3 General Precaution The bus capacitor discharge time is 10 minutes. Before starting wiring or inspection, switch power off, wait for more than 10 minutes, and check for residual voltage between terminal P/+ and N/− with a meter etc., to avoid a hazard of electrical shock.

WIRING 3.3.2 Maximum permissible motor wiring length The overall wiring length for connection of a single motor or multiple motors should be within 500m. (The wiring length should be 100m maximum for vector control.) The lengths in the following table are for unshielded cables. When shielded cables are used divide the values listed in the table by 2.
WIRING 3.4 Control circuit specification 3.4.1 Standard control circuit terminal layout Terminal screw size: M3.5 Tightening torque: 1.2Nm 3.4.2 Wiring instruction Terminals PC, 5, and SE are all common terminals (0V) for I/O signals and are isolated from each other. Avoid connecting the terminal PC and 5 and the terminal SE and 5 (ground).
4 PRECAUTIONS FOR USE OF THE INVERTER The FR-A701 series is a highly reliable product, but incorrect peripheral circuit making or operation/handling method may shorten the product life or damage the product. Before starting operation, always recheck the following items. Use crimping terminals with insulation sleeve to wire the power supply and motor.
PRECAUTIONS FOR USE OF THE INVERTER Instructions for overload operation When performing operation of frequent start/stop of the inverter, increase/decrease in the temperature of the transistor element of the inverter may repeat due to a continuous flow of large current, shortening the life from thermal fatigue. Since thermal fatigue is related to the amount of current, the life can be increased by reducing bound current, starting current, etc.
5 FAILSAFE OF THE SYSTEM WHICH USES THE INVERTER When a fault occurs, the inverter trips to output a fault signal. However, a fault output signal may not be output at an inverter fault occurrence when the detection circuit or output circuit fails, etc. Although Mitsubishi assures best quality products, provide an interlock which uses inverter status output signals to prevent accidents such as damage to machine when the inverter fails for some reason and at the same time consider the system configuration where failsafe from outside the inverter, without using the inverter, is enabled even if the inverter fails.
6 PARAMETER For simple variable-speed operation of the inverter, the initial setting of the parameters may be used as they are. Set the necessary parameters to meet the load and operational specifications. Parameter setting, change and check can be made from the operation panel.
