Instructions for compliance with the EU Directives
The EU Directives are issued to standardize different national regulations of the EU Member States and to facilitate free
movement of the equipment, whose safety is ensured, in the EU territory.
Since 1996, compliance with the EMC Directive that is one of the EU Directives has been legally required. Since 1997,
compliance with the Low Voltage Directive, another EU Directive, has been also legally required. When a manufacturer
confirms its equipment to be compliant with the EMC Directive and the Low Voltage Directive, the manufacturer must declare
the conformity and affix the CE marking.

Ensure the EMC filter is enabled, install the product as stated below, and, then carry out any wiring.
• The converter unit has a built-in EMC filter (Class C3). Enable the EMC filter. (For the details, refer to
• Connect the inverter and the converter unit to an earthed (grounded) power supply.
• Install the motor and controller cable found in the EMC Installation Manual (BCN-A21041-204) and Technical News (MF-
S-113) according to the instructions.
• To make full use of the built-in EMC filter, motor cable lengths should not exceed 20 m.
• Ensure that the finalized system which includes an inverter and converter unit complies with the EMC Directive.
Low Voltage Directive
We have self-confirmed our inverters as products compliant to the Low Voltage Directive and affix the CE marking on the
• Low Voltage Directive: 2014/35/EU
• Conforming standard: EN 61800-5-1:2007
Outline of instructions
• Do not use an earth leakage circuit breaker as an electric shock protector without connecting the equipment to the earth.
Connect the equipment to the earth (ground) securely.
• Wire the earth terminal independently. (Do not connect two or more cables to one terminal.)
