Panel cut-out dimensions The old v4 HMI The new v5 HMI 206 ± 1 241 ± 1 Panel cut-out Panel cut-out 241 ±1 206 ±1 Horizontal center line remains the same for existing and for the new HMI cut-out. Minimum clearance required around the existing cut-out without offcut gatherer: 10 mm (Y1 = Y2 = X1 = X2) as illustrated.
  • Page 5: Cutting Order

    — 2. Cutting order The cutting order illustrated here is from the HMI front. There are three different cutting order alternatives (A, B, C) depending on the space availability on the panel. Horizontal up/down cut-out is possible only as shown in the pictures as the cutting head makes parallel cut-outs.

  • Page 7: Assembling The Cutting Tool

    — 4. Assembling the cutting tool The cutting tool kit contains 4 pcs of coil springs. Install the coil springs (4 pcs) between the die and the punch. Ensure that the die and the punch have the same marking ”REF 542plus” on the same side. This shows that the parts are correctly positioned.
  • Page 8 Insert the feed rod through the die and the punch assembly. Tighten the feed rod to the power unit. Add offcut gatherer by using screws (4 pcs). After assembling the cutting head, insert the battery to the power unit. The battery can be inserted from either side.
  • Page 9: Preparations

    — 5. Preparations Refer to safety instructions before starting any operations Ensure that there is enough space to operate the with the cutting tool. cutting tool in all intended directions. Check the space required by the replacement HMI and for the wiring. The cutting can be performed from the front or the back of The cutting tool operation needs space around the the panel door.
  • Page 10: Operating The Cutting Tool On A Horizontal Edge (Up/Down)

    — 6. Operating the cutting tool on a horizontal edge (up/down) To set the cutting head for horizontal guiding: turn the cutting head to the “HORIZONTAL UP” position so that “HORIZONTAL UP” marking is visible at the top. Use the “HORIZONTAL UP” position with cuttings (1-5) as shown in the section 2.
  • Page 11 Push the cutting head firmly against the left side cut-out edge as shown in the picture. Push the operating switch. Be careful with the flinging offcuts, if offcut gatherer is not used. Push the vent lever to ensure that the punch is released after each cut (1-5).
  • Page 12 It is recommended to make overlapping cuts 1...3 mm to avoid sharp edges in between the cutting junction points. For the last horizontal cut, push the cutting head firmly against the right side cut-out edge as shown in the picture.
  • Page 13: Operating The Cutting Tool On A Vertical Edge

    — 7. Operating the cutting tool on a vertical edge Rotate the cutting head to set the correct vertical cutting direction. For your safety, keep your hands on the power unit, never on the cutting head. Beware of the sharp edges!
  • Page 14: Vertical Cut Alternative A

    — 7.1 Vertical cut Alternative A (left/left) To set the cutting head for vertical left guiding: turn the cutting head so that the “VERTICAL Left” marking is at the top. Use the “VERTICAL Left” position with cuttings (6-9) and (10-13) as shown in section 2 (alternative A). Push the cutting head firmly against the left side cut-out edge starting from the top.
  • Page 15: Vertical Cut Alternative B

    — 7.2 Vertical cut Alternative B (left/right) To set the cutting head for vertical left guiding: turn the cutting head so that the “VERTICAL Left” marking is at the top. Use the “VERTICAL Left” position with cuttings (6-9) as shown in section 2 (alternative B). Push the cutting head firmly against the left side cut-out edge starting from the top.
  • Page 16 Turn the cutting head to the “VERTICAL Right” position to make cuttings (10-13). Push the cutting head firmly against the right side cut-out edge starting from the top. Make four cuts (10-13) below each other, starting from the top. It is recommended to make overlapping cuts to avoid sharp edges in between the cutting junction points.
  • Page 17: Vertical Cut Alternative C

    — 7.3 Vertical cut Alternative C (right/right) To set the cutting head for vertical guiding: turn the cutting head to the “VERTICAL Right” position facing up. Use the “VERTICAL Right” position with cuttings (6-9) and (10-13) as shown in section 2 (alternative C). Push the cutting head firmly against the right side cut-out edge starting from the top.
  • Page 18: Finalizing Your Work

    — 8. Finalizing your work After each HMI cut-out, empty the offcut gatherer. For safety reasons remove the battery first. Ensure that no offcuts remain inside the switchgear if offcut gatherer was not used. Use a file (hand tool) to remove any sharp edges or burrs around the cut-out area.
  • Page 19 Make sure to pay special attention in filing snap-lock areas on the top and bottom of the cut-out. This makes new HMI installation easier. Clean dust and any offcuts if offcut gatherer was not used.
  • Page 20: Finishing Your Work

    — 9. Finishing your work It is advisable to coat bare surfaces, for example with cold galvanized compounds, in case of corrosive atmosphere. Install the new v5 HMI. Push the snap-locks for easier installation. Push the HMI from the front.
  • Page 21 Install the HMI EMC cover. Finish your work and close the door.
