9. Using the external input/output
9-1. External signal input function
• In order to use external signal input, use the 5-wire cable for external input that comes with the unit.
(1) External input
By using an external no voltage contact signal, it is possible to send Emergency stop/Normal,
ON/OFF or Prohibit/Permit local remote controller operation commands to all units being
controlled. (This is selected by the SW3 setting. SW3 is mounted on the main unit board.)
Do not use external input.
Change between emergency stop/normal.
During an emergency stop, all units will be stopped, and all operations using this
controller, other system controllers and the local remote control will be prohibited.
All units will turn ON/OFF according to the input state.
Set ON/OFF and prohibit/permit .
All units will turn ON/OFF and all local remote controller ON/OFF operations will be
prohibited according to the input state. Operation with this controller will be enabled.
When prohibit is input, the local remote control's ON/OFF, operation mode, set
temperature and filter reset operation will be prohibited. This controller can be operated.
(2) Level signal and pulse signal
(A) Level signal
1. Only emergency stop can be used when SW3-4 "operation prohibit setting
changeover" is set to "OFF (disabled)".
2. If the level input emergency stop and ON/OFF are set, operation of the other system
controllers will be prohibited even if SW3-5 "operation prohibit range changeover" is
set to "OFF (only local remote control)".
