CHAPTER1 CE marking Safety Information To ensure correct and safe use of YAMAHA industrial robots, carefully read this supple- ment manual and make yourself well acquainted with the contents. FOLLOW THE WARNINGS, CAUTIONS AND USER’S INCLUDED IN THIS SUPPLEMENT MANUAL.
CE marking is affixed to any single unit of YAMAHA robot series products, this means that use of any single unit of YAMAHA robot series products is not guar- anteed to conform to the EC directives. When you ship your finished system to or use it in Europe, you are required to verify that your system conforms to EC directives.
In order to ensure your product conforms to EMC directives, you must evaluate your finished product (entire system) and take necessary countermeasures. EMC counter- measures for single units of YAMAHA robots are listed in “Chapter 3 EMC Counter- measures” on page 20.
Safety precautions during robot operation ■ The robot must be operated by a person who has received Robot Training from YAMAHA or an authorized YAMAHA dealers. ■ During operation of the robot, be sure to stay out of the working area of the manipulator.
(These warning labels are not affixed to the ERCX.) To use the YAMAHA robot and controller safely and correctly, be sure to observe the caution and instruction on the labels. I Label warning of...
CHAPTER1 CE marking 1-6-2 Meaning of warning labels I “Read instruction manual” label This label indicates that important items you must know are described in the instruc- tion manual. The followings are particularly important. • The power fuses in the controller are located on both sides of L/N. (See Fig. 2-4, “Power supply and emergency stop circuit block diagram (SRCX)”(page 13), and also Fig.
CHAPTER1 CE marking Operating environment I Installation location Install the robot controller indoors, at a height of less than 1000 meters above sea level. I Operating temperature The ambient temperature should be maintained within a range of 0 to 40°C during operation.

CHAPTER2 Configuration and Connection C A U T I O N C A U T I O N (ERCX controller only) C A U T I O N The power consumption listed above is for ERCX controller only. Additional power should be supplied for the mechanical brake and I/O control via the I/O connector.
CHAPTER2 Configuration and Connection C A U T I O N C A U T I O N C A U T I O N When connecting the power supply to the ERCX controller, the cable length between the ERCX controller and the AC adapter for supplying DC power to the ERCX controller should be less than 10 meters, in order to prevent external surge intrusion into the power cable.
Never attempt isolation resistance tests or voltage breakdown tests on the controller. Since capacitive grounding is provided between the controller body and 0V, these tests may result in detecting excessive leakage current or damage to internal circuitry. If these tests are required, please consult your YAMAHA sales office or representative.
Typical component layout for EMC countermeasures The following countermeasures are typical methods for testing the robot and controller under YAMAHA installation conditions. When the robot and controller are used while installed in your system, the actual test results may differ depending on installation con- ditions.
Typical component layout for EMC countermeasures (DRCX) Fig.3-3 shows a typical component layout for EMC countermeasures when the DRCX controller is used in combination with a YAMAHA cartesian or pick-and-place type robot. Fig.3-4 shows a typical component layout for EMC countermeasures when the DRCX controller is used in combination with two YAMAHA single-axis robots.
CHAPTER3 EMC Countermeasures Precautions for Cable Connections Various cables are used to connect the robot controller to peripheral devices. Lay out AC cables as separately from low DC cables as possible. I AC cables • Power cable • Motor cable I Low DC cables •...
