SAFETY PRECAUTIONS (Read these precautions before use.) Before using this product, please read this manual and the relevant manuals introduced in this manual carefully and pay full attention to safety in order to handle the product correctly. This manual classifies the safety precautions into two categories: [ WARNING] and [ CAUTION].
[DESIGN PRECAUTIONS] CAUTION ● When an inductive load such as a lamp, heater, or solenoid valve is controlled, a large current (approximately ten times greater than normal) may flow when the output is turned from off to on. Take proper measures so that the flowing current dose not exceed the value corresponding to the maximum load specification of the resistance load.
CAUTION ● Work carefully when using a screwdriver such as installation of the product. Failure to do so may cause damage to the product or accidents. ● Connect the extension cables, peripheral device cables, input/output cables and battery connecting cable securely to their designated connectors. Loose connections may cause malfunctions. ●...
WARNING ● Make sure to properly wire to the spring clamp terminal block in accordance with the following precautions. Failure to do so may cause electric shock, equipment failures, a shortcircuit, wire breakage, malfunctions, or damage to the product. The disposal size of the cable end should follow the dimensions described in the User's Manual (Hardware) of the CPU module used.
● Do not disassemble or modify the PLC. Doing so may cause fire, equipment failures, or malfunctions. For repair, contact your local Mitsubishi Electric representative. ● After the first use of the SD memory card, do not insert/remove the memory card more than 500 times.
[DISPOSAL PRECAUTIONS] CAUTION ● Please contact a certified electronic waste disposal company for the environmentally safe recycling and disposal of your device. ● When disposing of batteries, separate them from other waste according to local regulations. (For details of the Battery Directive in EU countries, refer to the User's Manual (Hardware) of the CPU module used.) [TRANSPORTATION PRECAUTIONS] CAUTION...
• Since the examples indicated by this manual, technical bulletin, catalog, etc. are used as a reference, please use it after confirming the function and safety of the equipment and system.
