WARNING
HAZARD OF ELECTRIC SHOCK, EXPLOSION OR ARC FLASH
• NEVER touch a live power terminal. Doing so could cause an electrical shock or a machine malfunction.
• Do not use voltage beyond the GP unit's specified range. Doing so may cause a fire or an electric shock.
• 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.
• 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.
• 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.
• The GP unit's wiring should be checked to confirm that both the operating voltage and wiring terminal
locations are correct. If either the voltage or the wiring terminal location is incorrect, it can cause a fire or
accident.
• Be sure to use only the designated torque to tighten the GP unit's terminal block screws. If these screws
are not tightened firmly, it may cause a short-circuit, fire or incorrect unit operation.
• 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.
• To prevent an electric shock, be sure to disconnect your GP unit's power cord from the power supply
before wiring the GP.
• 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 (14 AWG) or thicker wire, or your country’s applicable
standard. Otherwise, electric shock or malfunctions may result.
• To prevent an electrical shock, unplug the GP unit's power cord before either cleaning the GP or attaching/
detaching the power terminal attachment screws.
• Do not connect or disconnect Host and GP unit communication cables while the GP is turned ON.
Failure to follow these instructions can result in death, serious injury, or equipment damage.

WARNING
UNINTENDED EQUIPMENT OPERATION OR LOSS OF CONTROL
• 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 and a major accident can occur. 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.
• 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 and/or mechanical interlocks.
• Be sure to design your system so that a communication interruption 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 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.
• 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.
• To prevent a GP unit malfunction due to excessive noise, isolate all GP input/output signal lines from all
power wiring or power cables via a separate wiring duct.
Failure to follow these instructions can result in death, serious injury, or equipment damage.
4
WARNING
UNINTENDED EQUIPMENT OPERATION OR LOSS OF CONTROL
• The cables connected to the GP should be secured by cable clamps to prevent weight or tension of the
cables added to the connectors or terminals.
• Be sure all cable connectors are securely attached to the GP unit. A loose connection may cause incorrect input or output signals.
• 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 operate or store the GP in locations where it can be exposed to 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.
• 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.
Failure to follow these instructions can result in death, serious injury, or equipment damage.

CAUTION
EYE IRRITANT
• The unit's liquid crystal panel contains a powerful irritant. If, for any reason, the panel is damaged and this
liquid enters your eyes, flush your eyes for 15 minutes with running water and contact a physician immediately.
Failure to follow these instructions can result in injury or equipment damage.
NOTICE
LOSS OF DATA
• Be sure to back up the GP screen data in case they are lost accidentally.
Failure to follow these instructions can result in equipment damage.
NOTICE
PROPER EQUIPMENT DISPOSAL REQUIREMENTS
• The unit should be disposed of in a manner appropriate to, and in accordance with, the user country's
industrial machinery disposal standards.
Failure to follow these instructions can result in equipment damage.

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 light or dark pixels. This is an LCD characteristic and not a product
defect.
• 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/red LED backlight may change gradually
owing to the deterioration of the backlight LED. The white LCD display may look bluish when it turns on.
• The panel brightness may decrease when used for a long time in an environment continuously filled with inert gas. To
prevent deterioration of panel brightness, regularly ventilate the panel. For more information, please contact your local
distributor.

The front face of the GP unit, installed in a solid panel, has been tested using, conditions
equivalent to the standards shown in the specification. Even though the, GP unit’s level of
resistance is equivalent to these standards, 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.
If the installation gasket is used for a long period of time, or if the unit and its gasket, are
removed from the panel, the original level of the protection cannot be guaranteed. To
maintain the original protection level, be sure to replace the installation gasket regularly.

Regarding dimensional tolerance, everything +1/-0 mm [+0.04/-0 in.] and R in angle are
below R3 [R0.12 in.].
*3
Even if panel thickness is within recommend range for “Panel Cut Dimensions”, the panel
could warp, depending on panel’s material, size, and installation location of GP or other
devices. To prevent panel warpage, the installation surface may need to be strengthened.

4.1 Installation
This section describes the procedures and precautions for installing the GP Series units.
Check the Installation Gasket’s Seating
It is strongly recommended that you use the installation gasket, since it absorbs vibration in addition to
repelling water.
For the procedure for attaching the installation gasket, refer to "5.3 Replacing the Installation Gasket".
SEE
5.3 Replacing the Installation Gasket (page 5-4)
• Before installing the GP into a cabinet or panel, check that the installation gasket is
securely attached to the unit.
• A gasket which has been used for a long period of time may have scratches or dirt on
it, and could have lost much of its dust and drip resistance. Be sure to change the
gasket periodically (or when scratches or dirt become visible).
Creating a Panel Cut
Create the correct sized opening required to install the GP, using the installation dimensions given.
Decide the panel’s thickness based on the level of panel strength required.
SEE
 Panel Cut Dimensions (page 3-17)
• Check that the installation panel or cabinet’s surface is flat, in good condition and has no jagged
edges.
• Even if panel thickness is within recommend range for “Panel Cut Dimensions”, the panel could
warp, depending on panel’s material, size, and installation location of GP or other devices. To
prevent panel warpage, the installation surface may need to be strengthened.

GP-4100 Series Hardware Manual
5.3 Replacing the Installation Gasket
The installation gasket provides protection against dust and moisture.
• A gasket which has been used for a long period of time may have scratches or dirt
on it, and could have lost much of its water resistance to be equivalent to IP65f /
NEMA #250 TYPE4X/13. Be sure to change the gasket at least once a year, or
when scratches or dirt become visible.
• The GP unit installation gasket’s model number is “ZC9WG31.”
Installation Gasket Attachment Procedure
(1)
Place the GP on a flat, level surface facing the display face downwards.
(2)
Remove the gasket from the GP.
(3)
Attach the new gasket to the GP. Be sure to insert the gasket into the GP’s groove so that the gasket’s
groove sides are vertical.

Check that the gasket is attached correctly to the GP.
Chapter 5 Maintenance
• The gasket must be inserted correctly into the groove for the GP’s moisture resistance.
• Since the gasket is flexible but not elastic, be careful not to stretch it unnecessarily,
as doing so could tear the gasket.
• Be sure the gasket’s seam is not inserted into any of the unit’s corners, only in the
straight sections of the groove. Inserting it into a corner may lead to its eventually
tearing.
• To ensure stable resistance against dust and moisture, insert the gasket so that the
seam is at the bottom of the GP unit.
• The upper surface of the gasket should protrude approximately 2.0 mm out from the
groove. Be sure to check that the gasket is correctly inserted before installing the GP
into a panel.
