  • Page 4: Safety Precautions

    Safety Precautions ● When replacing A (Large Type)/AnS (Small Type) Series with Q Series ● Before using products introduced in this publication, please read this Transition Examples and relevant manuals carefully and pay full attention to safety to handle the product correctly. In this publication, the safety precautions are classified into two levels: "...
  • Page 5 Design Precautions WARNING ● In an output module, when a load current exceeding the rated current or an overcurrent caused by a load short-circuit flows for a long time, it may cause smoke and fire. To prevent this, configure an external safety circuit, such as a fuse.
  • Page 6 Installation Precautions CAUTION ● Use the programmable controller in an environment that meets the general specifications in the QCPU User's Manual (Hardware Design, Maintenance and Inspection). Failure to do so may result in electric shock, fire, malfunction, or damage to or deterioration of the product. ●...
  • Page 7 Wiring Precautions WARNING ● Shut off the external power supply for the system in all phases before mounting or wiring the module. Failure to do so may result in electric shock or damage to the product. ● After mounting or wiring, attach the included terminal cover onto the module before turning the power on or starting operation.
  • Page 8 Startup and Maintenance Precautions WARNING ● Do not touch any terminal while power is on. Doing so will cause electric shock. ● Correctly connect the battery connector. The battery must not be charged, disassembled, heated, thrown into the fire, short-circuited, soldered, wetted with a liquid or exposed to strong shock.
  • Page 9 Disposal Precautions CAUTION ● When disposing of this product, treat it as industrial waste. When disposing of batteries, separate them from other wastes according to the local regulations. (For details of the battery directive in EU member states, refer to the QCPU User's Manual (Hardware Design, Maintenance and Inspection).) Transportation Precautions CAUTION...

    ● When replacing AnS (Small Type) Series with L Series ● Before using products introduced in this publication, please read this Transition Examples and relevant manuals carefully and pay full attention to safety to handle the product correctly. In this publication, the safety precautions are classified into two levels: "...
  • Page 11 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) Configure external safety circuits, such as an emergency stop circuit, protection circuit, and protective interlock circuit for forward/reverse operation or upper/lower limit positioning.
  • Page 12 Design Precautions CAUTION ● Do not bundle the control cable or communication cable with the main circuit or power wire, or lay them adjacently. Separate these by 100 mm or more as a rule. Failure to observe this could lead to malfunctioning caused by noise. ●...
  • Page 13 Wiring Precautions CAUTION ● Ground the FG and LG terminals to the dedicated conductors for the programmable controller (Class D (Class 3) or higher grounding). 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 Startup and Maintenance Precaution WARNING ● Do not touch any terminal while power is on. Doing so will cause electric shock or malfunction. ● Correctly connect the battery connector. The battery must not be charged, disassembled, heated, thrown into the fire, short-circuited, soldered, wetted with a liquid or exposed to strong shock. Doing so will cause the battery to produce heat, explode, or ignite, resulting in injury and fire.
  • Page 15 Disposal Precautions CAUTION ● When disposing of this product, treat it as industrial waste. When disposing of batteries, separate them from other wastes according to the local regulations. (For details of the battery directive in EU member states, refer to "Handling of Batteries and Devices with Built-in Batteries in EU Member States"...
