  • Page 2: Safety Precautions

    SAFETY PRECAUTIONS (Please read these instructions before using this equipment.) Before using this product, please read this manual and the relevant manuals introduced in this manual carefully and pay full attention to safety to handle the product correctly. These precautions apply only to this product. Refer to the Q173D(S)CPU/Q172D(S)CPU Users manual for a description of the Motion controller safety precautions.
  • Page 3 For Safe Operations 1. Prevention of electric shocks DANGER Never open the front case or terminal covers while the power is ON or the unit is running, as this may lead to electric shocks. Never run the unit with the front case or terminal cover removed. The high voltage terminal and charged sections will be exposed and may lead to electric shocks.
  • Page 4 3. For injury prevention CAUTION Do not apply a voltage other than that specified in the instruction manual on any terminal. Doing so may lead to destruction or damage. Do not mistake the terminal connections, as this may lead to destruction or damage. Do not mistake the polarity ( + / - ), as this may lead to destruction or damage.
  • Page 5 CAUTION The dynamic brakes must be used only on errors that cause the forced stop, emergency stop, or servo OFF. These brakes must not be used for normal braking. The brakes (electromagnetic brakes) assembled into the servo motor are for holding applications, and must not be used for normal braking.
  • Page 6 CAUTION Set the servo amplifier capacity and type parameters to values that are compatible with the system application. The protective functions may not function if the settings are incorrect. Use the program commands for the program with the conditions specified in the instruction manual.
  • Page 7 CAUTION The Motion controller, servo amplifier and servo motor are precision machines, so do not drop or apply strong impacts on them. Securely fix the Motion controller, servo amplifier and servo motor to the machine according to the instruction manual. If the fixing is insufficient, these may come off during operation. Always install the servo motor with reduction gears in the designated direction.
  • Page 8 (4) Wiring CAUTION Correctly and securely wire the wires. Reconfirm the connections for mistakes and the terminal screws for tightness after wiring. Failing to do so may lead to run away of the servo motor. After wiring, install the protective covers such as the terminal covers to the original positions. Do not install a phase advancing capacitor, surge absorber or radio noise filter (option FR-BIF) on the output side of the servo amplifier.
  • Page 9 (6) Usage methods CAUTION Immediately turn OFF the power if smoke, abnormal sounds or odors are emitted from the Motion controller, servo amplifier or servo motor. Always execute a test operation before starting actual operations after the program or parameters have been changed or after maintenance and inspection. Do not attempt to disassemble and repair the units excluding a qualified technician whom our company recognized.
  • Page 10 (8) Maintenance, inspection and part replacement CAUTION Perform the daily and periodic inspections according to the instruction manual. Perform maintenance and inspection after backing up the program and parameters for the Motion controller and servo amplifier. Do not place fingers or hands in the clearance when opening or closing any opening. Periodically replace consumable parts such as batteries according to the instruction manual.
  • Page 11 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 Electric sales representative. Although this product was manufactured under conditions of strict quality control, you are strongly advised to install safety devices to forestall serious accidents when it is used in facilities where a breakdown in the product is likely to cause a serious accident.

  • Page 163 4 INSTALLATION AND WIRING (4) Precautions of SSCNET cable wiring SSCNET cable is made from optical fiber. If optical fiber is added a power such as a major shock, lateral pressure, haul, sudden bending or twist, its inside distorts or breaks, and optical transmission will not be available. Especially, as optical fiber for MR-J3BUS M and MR-J3BUS M-A is made of synthetic resin, it melts down if being left near the fire or high temperature.
  • Page 164 4 INSTALLATION AND WIRING (c) Lateral pressure If lateral pressure is added on the SSCNET cable, the cable itself distorts, internal optical fiber gets stressed, and then transmission loss will increase. At worst, the breakage of SSCNET cable may occur. As the same condition also occurs at cable laying, do not tighten up SSCNET cable with a thing such as nylon band (TY-RAP).
  • Page 165 4 INSTALLATION AND WIRING • Bundle fixing Optical cord should be given loose slack to avoid from becoming smaller than the minimum bend radius, and it should not be twisted. When bundling the cable, fix and hold it in position by using cushioning such as sponge or rubber which does not contain migratable plasticizing.
  • Page 166 4 INSTALLATION AND WIRING POINTS (1) Be sure to connect SSCNET cable with the above connector. If the connection is mistaken, between the Motion CPU module and servo amplifier cannot be communicated. (2) Forced removal of the SSCNET cable from the Motion CPU module will damage the Motion CPU modules and SSCNET cables.
