Installation of the inverter and enclosure design When designing or manufacturing an inverter enclosure, determine the structure, size, and device layout of the enclosure by fully considering the conditions such as heat generation of the contained devices and the operating environment. An inverter uses many semiconductor devices.
Humidity Operate the inverter within the ambient air humidity of usually 45 to 90% (up to 95% with circuit board coating). Too high humidity will pose problems of reduced insulation and metal corrosion. On the other hand, too low humidity may cause a spatial electrical breakdown.
Vibration, impact The vibration resistance of the inverter is up to 2.9 m/s at 10 to 55 Hz frequency and 1 mm amplitude for the directions of X, Y, Z axes. Applying vibration and impacts for a long time may loosen the structures and cause poor contacts of connectors, even if those vibration and impacts are within the specified values.
Installing the heat sink outside the enclosure When the heat sink is installed outside the enclosure, the amount of heat generated by the inverter unit and the converter unit is shown in the following tables. (For the details on protruding the heat sink outside the enclosure, refer to page 30.) Amount of heat generated (W)

PRECAUTIONS FOR USE OF THE INVERTER This chapter explains the precautions for use of this product. Always read the instructions before use. Electro-magnetic interference (EMI) and leakage currents 3.1.1 Leakage currents and countermeasures Capacitances exist between the inverter I/O cables, other cables and earth and in the motor, through which a leakage current flows.
Installation and selection of the molded case circuit breaker Install a molded case circuit breaker (MCCB) on the power receiving side to protect the wiring at the inverter input side. Select an MCCB according to the inverter input side power factor, which depends on the power supply voltage, output frequency and load.
NOTE • Install the earth leakage circuit breaker (ELB) on the input side of the converter. • In the connection earthed-neutral system, the sensitivity current is blunt against a ground fault in the inverter output side. Earthing (Grounding) must conform to the requirements of national and local safety regulations and electrical codes. (NEC section 250, IEC 61140 class 1 and other applicable standards) •...
Techniques to reduce electromagnetic noises that are radiated by the inverter or the converter unit to cause the peripheral devices to malfunction (EMI countermeasures) Noises generated from the inverter or the converter unit are largely classified into those radiated by the cables connected to the inverter or the converter unit and its main circuits (I/O), those electromagnetically and electrostatically induced to the signal cables of the peripheral devices close to the main circuit power supply, and those transmitted through the power supply cables.

3.1.3 Converter unit (FR-CC2) built-in EMC filter The converter unit (FR-CC2) is equipped with a built-in EMC filter (capacitive filter). These filters are effective in reducing air-propagated noise on the input side of the converter unit. To enable the EMC filter, set the EMC filter ON/OFF connector to the ON position. Two female connectors are initially connected to the OFF (disabled) male connectors.
Power supply harmonics 3.2.1 Power supply harmonics The inverter may generate power supply harmonics from its converter circuit to affect the power generator, power factor correction capacitor etc. Power supply harmonics are different from noise and leakage currents in source, frequency band and transmission path.
All capacity and all models of general-purpose inverter used by specific consumers are now covered by "the Harmonic Suppression Guidelines for Consumers Who Receive High Voltage or Special High Voltage" (hereinafter referred to as "the Specific Consumer Guidelines"). • "Specific Consumer Guidelines" This guideline sets forth the maximum harmonic currents outgoing from a high-voltage or especially high-voltage receiving consumer who will install, add or renew harmonic generating equipment.
Calculation of equivalent capacity P0 of harmonic generating equipment "Equivalent capacity" is the capacity of a 6-pulse converter converted from the capacity of consumer's harmonic generating equipment and is calculated by the following equation. If the sum of equivalent capacities is higher than the limit (refer to page 83), harmonics must be calculated by the equation in next subheading.
Installation of a reactor When the inverter is connected near a large-capacity power transformer (1000 kVA or more) or when a power factor correction capacitor is to be switched over, an excessive peak current may flow in the power input circuit, damaging the converter circuit. To prevent this, always install an AC reactor (FR-HAL), which is available as an option.
Power shutdown and magnetic contactor (MC) Converter unit input side magnetic contactor (MC) On the converter unit input side, it is recommended to provide an MC for the following purposes. (Refer to page 20 for selection.) • To disconnect the inverter from the power supply at activation of a protective function or at malfunctioning of the driving system (emergency stop, etc.).
NOTE • Before wiring or inspection for a PM motor, confirm that the PM motor is stopped. In an application, such as fan and blower, where the motor is driven by the load, a low-voltage manual contactor must be connected at the inverter's output side, and wiring and inspection must be performed while the contactor is open.
Countermeasures against deterioration of the 400 V class motor insulation In the PWM type inverter, a surge voltage attributable to wiring constants is generated at the motor terminals. Especially in a 400 V class motor, the surge voltage may deteriorate the insulation. When the 400 V class motor is driven by the inverter, consider the following countermeasures: ...
Checklist before starting operation The FR-A800 series inverter and FR-CC2 converter unit are highly reliable products, but incorrect peripheral circuit making or operation/handling method may shorten the product life or damage the products. Before starting operation, always recheck the following points. Refer to Check by Checkpoint...
Refer to Check by Checkpoint Countermeasure page user • Make sure that the terminal P/+ of the converter unit and the terminal P/+ of the inverter, and the terminal N/- of the converter unit and the terminal N- of the inverter are correctly connected.
Refer to Check by Checkpoint Countermeasure page user When performing frequent starts/stops by the inverter, rise/fall in the temperature of the transistor element of the inverter will repeat due to a repeated 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 A countermeasure is provided for current at locked condition, starting current, etc.
Failsafe system which uses the inverter When a fault is detected by the protective function, the protective function activates and outputs the Fault signal. However, the Fault signal may not be output at an inverter's fault occurrence when the detection circuit or output circuit fails, etc. Although Mitsubishi assures the best quality products, provide an interlock which uses inverter status output signals to prevent accidents such as damage to the machine when the inverter fails for some reason.
Checking the inverter operating status by using the start signal input to the inverter and the Inverter running signal output from the inverter ... (c) The Inverter running (RUN) signal is output when the inverter is running. (The RUN signal is assigned to terminal RUN in the initial setting.) Check if the RUN signal is output while a start signal (the STF/STR signal for forward/reverse rotation command) is input to the inverter.
Command speed and actual operation check Check for a gap between the actual speed and commanded speed by comparing the inverter's speed command and the speed detected by the speed detector.

The value displayed on the operation panel is the inverter-controlled voltage itself. Hence, that value is accurate and it is recommended to monitor values using the operation panel. 5.2.3 Measurement of currents Use a digital power meter (for inverter) for the input side of the converter unit (FR-CC2) and the output side of the inverter. Since the converter unit input current tends to be unbalanced, measurement of three phases is recommended.
NOTE • Before performing the insulation resistance test on the external circuit, disconnect the cables from all terminals of the inverter and the converter unit so that the test voltage is not applied to the inverter and the converter unit. •...
