■ Make sure that the power to the Controller is turned OFF and the power plug is
disconnected before connecting or disconnecting any cables. Connecting or
disconnecting any cables with the power ON is extremely hazardous and may
result in electric shock and malfunction of the Controller.
■ Be sure to connect the cables properly. Do not allow unnecessary strain on the
cables. (Do not put heavy objects on the cables. Do not bend or pull the cables
forcibly.) The unnecessary strain on the cables may result in damage to the
cables, disconnection, and/or contact failure. Damaged cables, disconnection,
or contact failure is extremely hazardous and may result in electric shock and/or
improper function of the system.
■ The serial number of the Manipulator that should be connected is indicated on the
Connection Check Label on the Controller. Connect the Controller and the
Manipulator correctly. Improper connection between the Controller and the
Manipulator may cause not only improper function of the robot system but also
■ Before connecting the connector, make sure that the pins are not bent.
Connecting with the pins bent may damage the connector and result in
malfunction of the robot system.
