Essential Safety Precautions
All safety-related procedures stated in this document must be followed to operate the GP correctly and safely. Be sure to
read this and any related documents thoroughly to understand the correct operation and functions of the GP unit.
Safety Icons
Throughout this manual, these icons provide essential safety information for GP operation procedures requiring special
attention. These icons indicate the following levels of danger:
Indicates situations where severe bodily injury, death or major equipment damage
can occur.
Indicates situations where slight bodily injury or minor equipment damage can
occur.
Indicates actions or procedures that should NOT be performed.
Indicates actions or procedures that MUST be performed to ensure correct unit
operation.
System Design
Do not make switches using the switches on the touch panels which may cause operator injury and
machine damage. An output may remain either ON or OFF due to a malfunction of the GP unit, it’s I/O
unit(s) or cable(s), which may cause a major accident. To prevent this, set up circuits such as limiters that
will monitor vital output signals. Design switches for important operations to be performed by separate
devices. An incorrect output or malfunction can occur and thereby cause an accident.
Do not create GP touch panel switches to control machine safety operations, such as an emergency stop
switch. Install these switches as separate hardware switches, otherwise severe bodily injury or equipment
damage can occur.
Be sure to design your system so that a communication fault between the GP and its host controller will
not cause equipment to malfunction. This is to prevent any possibility of bodily injury or equipment damage.
Do not use the GP as a warning device for critical alarms that can cause serious operator injury, machine
damage or can halt system operation. Critical alarm indicators and their control/activator units must be
designed using stand-alone hardware with redundancy and/or mechanical interlocks.
Do not use the GP with aircraft control devices, aerospace equipment, central trunk data transmission
(communication) devices, nuclear power control devices, or medical life support equipment, due to these
devices' inherent requirements of extremely high levels of safety and reliability.
2
When using the GP with transportation vehicles (trains, cars, and ships), disaster and crime prevention
devices, various types of safety equipment, and medical devices that are not life-support related, use
redundant and/or failsafe system designs to ensure proper reliability and safety.
After the GP unit's backlight burns out the touch panel is still active, unlike the GP unit's "Standby Mode".
If the operator fails to notice that the backlight is burned out and touches the panel, a potentially dangerous machine operation error can occur. Therefore, do not create GP unit touch panel switches that may
cause injury and/or equipment damage. If your GP unit's backlight suddenly turns OFF, use the following
steps to determine if the backlight is actually burned out.
1) If the GP unit's "Backlight Control" is not set and the screen has gone blank, your backlight is burned
out.
2) If the GP unit's "Backlight Control" is set to Standby Mode and the screen has gone blank, and touching
the screen or performing another input operation does not cause the display to reappear, your backlight
is burned out.
Handling
Do not disassemble or modify the GP unit. Doing so may cause a fire or an electric shock.
Do not operate the GP in an environment where flammable gases are present, since it may cause an
explosion.
Wiring
To prevent electrical shock or equipment damage, unplug the GP unit's power cord from the power supply
prior to installing or wiring the GP.
To prevent an electric shock, be sure to disconnect your GP unit's power cord from the power supply
before wiring the GP.
Do not use voltage beyond the GP unit's specified range. Doing so may cause a fire or an electric shock.
Maintenance
Do not connect or disconnect Host and GP unit communication cables while the GP is turned ON.
Do not replace the GP unit's battery yourself. The GP uses a lithium battery for backing up its internal
clock data and the battery may explode if it is replaced incorrectly. When replacement is required, please
contact your local GP distributor.
3
Installation
Be sure all cable connectors are securely attached to the GP unit. A loose connection may cause incorrect
input or output signals.
Wiring
Be sure to ground the GP unit's FG wire separately from other equipment FG lines. Also, be sure to use a
grounding resistance of 100 or less and a 2mm2 or thicker wire, or your country's applicable standard.
Otherwise, electric shock or malfunctions may result.
Be sure that metal particles and wiring debris do not fall inside the GP unit. They can cause a fire, malfunction or incorrect unit operation.
Maintenance
Be sure to turn the GP unit's CF Card ACCESS switch OFF and confirm that the ACCESS lamp is not lit
prior to inserting or removing a CF Card. Otherwise, CF Card internal data may be damaged or lost.
Do not reset or turn the GP OFF, or insert or remove the CF Card while the GP unit's CF Card is being
accessed. Create special application screens to perform operations like turning power OFF, resetting the
GP or inserting or removing the CF Card.
Unit Disposal
When the product is disposed of, it should be disposed of in a manner appropriate to, and in accordance
with, the user country's industrial machinery disposal/recycling standards.
General Safety Precautions
Do not press on the GP unit's display with excessive force or with a hard object, since it can damage the
display. Also, do not press on the touch panel with a pointed object, such as the tip of a mechanical pencil
or a screwdriver, since doing so can damage the touch panel.
Do not install the GP where the ambient temperature exceeds the specified range. Doing so may cause a
unit malfunction.
To prevent abnormally high temperatures from occurring inside the GP, do not restrict or block the GP
unit's rear-face ventilation slots.
Do not operate the GP in areas where large, sudden temperature changes can occur. These changes can
cause condensation to form inside the GP, possibly causing it to malfunction.
Do not allow water, liquids or metal fragments to enter inside the GP unit's case, since they can cause
either a malfunction or an electric shock. The allowable pollution degree is 2.
4
Do not operate or store the GP in locations where it can be exposed to direct sunlight, high temperatures,
excessive dust, moisture or vibration.
Do not operate or store the GP where chemicals evaporate, or where chemicals are present in the air.
Corrosive chemicals: Acids, alkalines, liquids containing salt
Flammable chemicals: Organic Solvents
Do not use paint thinner or organic solvents to remove dirt or oil from the GP unit's surface. Instead, use a
soft cloth moistened with a diluted neutral detergent.
Do not use or store the GP in areas with direct sunlight, since the sun's ultraviolet rays may cause the
LCD's quality to deteriorate.
The cover on the insertion hole for function switch sheet may deteriorate when used in environments that
experience high levels of ozone or extreme cold.
If moisture remains on the cover on the insertion hole for function switch sheet when inserted, it may eventually peel off. Please dry the cap on insertion.
Do not store the GP in an area where the temperature is lower than that recommended in the GP unit's
specifications. Doing so may cause the LCD display's liquid to congeal, which can damage the LCD.
Also, if the storage area's temperature becomes higher than the specified level, the LCD's liquid may
become isotropic, causing irreversible damage to the LCD. Therefore, only store the GP in areas where
temperatures are within the GP unit's specifications.
After turning OFF the GP, be sure to wait a few seconds before turning it ON again. The GP may not operate correctly if it is restarted too quickly.
Be sure to back up the GP screen data in case they are lost accidentally.
LCD Panel Usage Precautions
• The LCD panel's liquid contains an irritant. If the panel is damaged and any of this liquid contacts your skin,
immediately rinse the area with running water for at least 15 minutes. If the liquid gets in your eyes, immediately
rinseyour eyes with running water for at least 15 minutes and consult a doctor.
• The GP unit's LCD screen may flicker or show unevenness in the brightness of certain images or at some contrast
settings. This is an LCD characteristic and not a product defect.
• There’s an individual difference in brightness and tone of LCD screen. Please be aware of this difference before using
the lined-up plural units.
• Depending on the ambient temperature, LCD displays may sometimes look whitish (at high temperatures) or blackish
(at low temperatures). This is an LCD characteristic and not a product defect.
• Some of GP unit's LCD screens may contain black and white colored pixels. This is an LCD characteristic and not a
product defect.
5
• Extended shadows, or “Crosstalk” may appear on the sides of screen images. This is an LCD characteristic and not a
product defect.
• The color displayed on the GP unit's LCD screen may appear different when seen from outside the specified viewing
angle. This is an LCD characteristic and not a product defect.
• When the same image is displayed on the GP unit's screen for a long period, an afterimage may appear when the image
is changed. This is an LCD characteristic and not a product defect.
• To prevent an afterimage:
* Set the GP unit's display OFF feature when you plan to display the same screen image for a long period of time.
* Change the screen image periodically and try to not display the same image for a long period of time.
• Please be aware that characteristics of the GP unit's LCD screen with a white LED backlight may change gradually
owing to the deterioration of the backlight LED and the LCD display may look bluish.

Even though the GP unit's level of resistance is equivalent to the standards shown in
the specification, oils that should have no effect on the GP can possibly harm the unit.
This can occur in areas where either vaporized oils are present, or where low
viscosity cutting oils are allowed to adhere to the unit for long periods of time. If the
GP's front face protection sheet becomes peeled off, these conditions can lead to the
ingress of oil into the GP and separate protection measures are suggested.
Also, if non-approved oils are present, it may cause deformation or corrosion of the
front panel's plastic cover. Therefore, prior to installing the GP be sure to confirm the
type of conditions that will be present in the GP's operating environment.

The GP's internal clock has a slight error. At normal operating temperatures and
conditions, with the GP operating from its lithium battery, the degree of error is 65
seconds per month. Variations in operating conditions and battery life can cause this
error to vary from -380 to +90 seconds per month. For systems where this degree of
error will be a problem, the user should be sure to monitor this error and make
adjustments when required.
• When the message “RAAA051 Low battery” is displayed, supply power to the display unit and
fully charge the battery. The battery charges within 24 hours to a level which allows backup
operation. Completing a full charge requires about 96 hours (4 days).
• A Lithium battery’s lifetime is: 10 years when the battery’s ambient temperature is 40°C or less.
4.1 years when the battery’s ambient temperature is 50°C or less. 1.5 years when the battery’s
ambient temperature is 60°C or less.
When used for backup:
Approximately 100 days, with a fully charged battery.
Approximately 6 days, with a half-charged battery.
• When connecting the external device directly to the GP unit with an Ethernet cable, depending
on the external device, communication may not be possible.

3.3 CF Card Insertion/Removal
This section describes how to insert and remove a CF Card.
When using the GP Unit and a CF Card, observe the following precautions:
Prior to inserting or removing a CF Card, be sure to turn the GP unit’s CF Card ACCESS
switch OFF and to confirm that the ACCESS lamp is not lit. If you do not, CF Card internal
data may be damaged or lost.
While a CF Card is being accessed (CF Card access LED: Green ON), NEVER turn OFF
or reset the GP, or insert or remove the CF Card. If you do not, CF Card internal data may
be damaged or lost.
Prior to inserting a CF Card, familiarize yourself with the CF Card’s front and rear face
orientation, as well as the CF Card connector's position. If the CF Card is not correctly
positioned when it is inserted into the Unit, the CF Card’s internal data and the GP unit may
be damaged or broken.
Be sure to use only CF Cards manufactured by Pro-face. The CF Card’s internal data may
be damaged when using another manufacturer's CF Card.
Once GP data is lost, it cannot be recovered. Since accidental data loss can occur at any
time, be sure to back up all GP screen and CF Card data regularly.
Be sure to follow the instructions given below to prevent the CF Card’s internal data from
being destroyed or a CF Card malfunction from occurring:
• DO NOT bend the CF Card.
• DO NOT drop or strike the CF Card against another object.
• Keep the CF Card dry.
• DO NOT touch the CF Card connectors.
• DO NOT disassemble or modify the CF Card.
