For Sate Operations
1. Prevention of electric shocks
WARNING
! Never open the front case or terminal covers while the power is ON or the unit is running, as this
may lead to electric shocks.
! Never run the unit with the front case or terminal cover removed. The high voltage terminal and
charged sections will be exposed and may lead to electric shocks.
! Never open the front case or terminal cover at times other than wiring work or periodic
inspections even if the power is OFF. The insides of the control unit and servo amplifier are
charged and may lead to electric shocks.
! When performing wiring work or inspections, turn the power OFF, wait at least ten minutes, and
then check the voltage with a tester, etc. Failing to do so may lead to electric shocks.
! Always ground the control unit, servo amplifier and servomotor with Class 3 grounding. Do not
ground commonly with other devices.
! The wiring work and inspections must be done by a qualified technician.
! Wire the units after installing the control unit, servo amplifier and servomotor. Failing to do so
may lead to electric shocks or damage.
! Never operate the switches with wet hands, as this may lead to electric shocks.
! Do not damage, apply excessive stress, place heavy things on or sandwich the cables, as this
may lead to electric shocks.
! Do not touch the control unit, servo amplifier or servomotor terminal blocks while the power is
ON, as this may lead to electric shocks.
! Do not touch the internal power supply, internal grounding or signal wires of the control unit and
servo amplifier, as this may lead to electric shocks.
2. For fire prevention
CAUTION
! Install the control unit, servo amplifier, servomotor and regenerative resistor on inflammable
material. Direct installation on flammable material or near flammable material may lead to fires.
! If a fault occurs in the control unit or servo amplifier, shut the power OFF at the servo amplifier's
power source. If a large current continues to flow, fires may occur.
! When using a regenerative resistor, shut the power OFF with an error signal. The
regenerative resistor may abnormally overheat due to a fault in the regenerative transistor, etc.,
and may lead to fires.
! Always take heat measures such as flame proofing for the inside of the control panel where the
servo amplifier or regenerative resistor is installed and for the wires used. Failing to do so may
lead to fires.
− II −
3. For injury prevention
CAUTION
! Do not apply a voltage other than that specified in the instruction manual on any terminal. Doing
so may lead to destruction or damage.
! Do not mistake the terminal connections, as this may lead to destruction or damage.
! Do not mistake the polarity (+/−), as this may lead to destruction or damage.
! The servo amplifier's heat radiating fins, regenerative resistor and servo amplifier, etc., will be hot
while the power is ON and for a short time after the power is turned OFF. Do not touch these
parts as doing so may lead to burns.
! Always turn the power OFF before touching the servomotor shaft or coupled machines, as these
parts may lead to injuries.
! Do not go near the machine during test operations or during operations such as teaching.
Doing so may lead to injuries.
4. Various precautions
Strictly observe the following precautions.
Mistaken handling of the unit may lead to faults, injuries or electric shocks.
(1) System structure
CAUTION
! Always install a leakage breaker on the control unit and servo amplifier power source.
! If installation of a magnetic contactor for power shut off during an error, etc., is specified in the
instruction manual for the servo amplifier, etc., always install the magnetic contactor.
! Install an external emergency stop circuit so that the operation can be stopped immediately and
the power shut off.
! Use the control unit, servo amplifier, servomotor and regenerative resistor with the
combinations listed in the instruction manual. Other combinations may lead to fires or faults.
! If safety standards (ex., robot safety rules, etc.,) apply to the system using the control unit, servo
amplifier and servomotor, make sure that the safety standards are satisfied.
! If the operation during a control unit or servo amplifier error and the safety direction operation of
the control unit differ, construct a countermeasure circuit externally of the control unit and servo
amplifier.
! In systems where coasting of the servomotor will be a problem during emergency stop, servo
OFF or when the power is shut OFF, use dynamic brakes.
! Make sure that the system considers the coasting amount even when using dynamic brakes.
! In systems where perpendicular shaft dropping may be a problem during emergency stop, servo
OFF or when the power is shut OFF, use both dynamic brakes and magnetic brakes.
! The dynamic brakes must be used only during emergency stop and errors where servo OFF
occurs. These brakes must not be used for normal braking.
! The brakes (magnetic brakes) assembled into the servomotor are for holding applications, and
must not be used for normal braking.
! Construct the system so that there is a mechanical allowance allowing stopping even if the stroke
limit switch is passed through at the max. speed.
! Use wires and cables that have a wire diameter, heat resistance and bending resistance
compatible with the system.
− III −
CAUTION
! Use wires and cables within the length of the range described in the instruction manual.
! The ratings and characteristics of the system parts (other than control unit, servo amplifier,
servomotor) must be compatible with the control unit, servo amplifier and servomotor.
! Install a cover on the shaft so that the rotary parts of the servomotor are not touched during
operation.
! There may be some cases where holding by the magnetic brakes is not possible due to the life or
mechanical structure (when the ball screw and servomotor are connected with a timing belt, etc.).
Install a stopping device to ensure safety on the machine side.
(2) Parameter settings and programming
CAUTION
! Set the parameter values to those that are compatible with the control unit, servo amplifier,
servomotor and regenerative resistor model and the system application. The protective functions
may not function if the settings are incorrect.
! The regenerative resistor model and capacity parameters must be set to values that conform to
the operation mode, servo amplifier and servo power unit. The protective functions may not
function if the settings are incorrect.
! Set the mechanical brake output and dynamic brake output validity parameters to values that are
compatible with the system application. The protective functions may not function if the settings
are incorrect.
! Set the stroke limit input validity parameter to a value that is compatible with the system
application. The protective functions may not function if the setting is incorrect.
! Set the servomotor encoder type (increment, absolute position type, etc.) parameter to a value
that is compatible with the system application. The protective functions may not function if the
setting is incorrect.
! Set the servomotor capacity and type (standard, low-inertia, flat, etc.) parameter to values that
are compatible with the system application. The protective functions may not function if the
settings are incorrect.
! Set the servo amplifier capacity and type parameters to values that are compatible with the
system application. The protective functions may not function if the settings are incorrect.
! Use the program commands for the program with the conditions specified in the instruction

2. SYSTEM CONFIGURATION
POINT
(1) The interface board and interface card cannot be used together.
(2) On some personal computers, the digital oscilloscope may not perform
sampling.
In that case, check the BIOS's ISA device memory and IRQ settings.
(For the BIOS settings, refer to the manual of your personal computer.)
(3) If, after SSCNET communication has been made, you remove the
interface board and boot the personal computer without that board being
reinstalled, Windows NT/98 may not start or may not run properly.
When removing the interface board from the personal computer, you
need to stop the SSCNET communication driver.
For the way to stop, refer to "4.5 Stopping the SSCNET Communication
Driver".
(4) If the resume function, suspension setting, power-saving function or
stand-by mode is set at the personal computer used for communication
with the motion CPU, a communication error may occur.
Do not use these functions at the personal computer used for
communication with the motion CPU.
(5) If the USB cable is connected or disconnected or the motion CPU is
reset or turned off and on frequently during communication of the motion
CPU, an unrecoverable communication error may occur.
Disconnect the GSV application from the line* whenever possible when
disconnecting or connecting the USB cable or resetting or turning on or
off the motion CPU.
If a communication error is not removed, disconnect the USB cable
completely and, after five seconds, connect it again. (Though an error
may occur during the first communication session after this operation,
the correct function is recovered at and after the second session.)
However, a communication error may not be removed even after the
above operation with some personal computer models.
In this case, reset the personal computer.
* Offline state (disconnection from line)
State where there is no communication with the Motion CPU (Program
or parameter reading/writing, monitoring and testing are made in the
online state.)
(6) A communication error may occur according to some combination of the
model of the personal computers and the USB cable and so on.
If this happens, repeat operation while referring to the displayed
message.
(7) If the baud rate of the serial port of the personal computer (interface on
the personal computer side) is changed for high speed communication,
communication may be unsuccessful or communication retries may
occur to result in slow communication, according to certain PC
performance.
If high speed communication is unsuccessful, decrease the baud rate.
(8) USB cable
• The USB cable can be used with Windows 98 or with a USB driver.
• It cannot be used with Windows NT.
• If the USB cable is used, only one motion CPU can be connected.

2. SYSTEM CONFIGURATION
POINT
(1) The interface board and interface card cannot be used together.
(2) On some personal computers, the digital oscilloscope may not perform
sampling.
In that case, use the card enabler supplied by the personal computer
maker or check the PC card controller settings (BIOS settings). (For the
BIOS settings, refer to the manual of your personal computer.)
(3) For Windows 98, insert the interface card into the personal computer
after installing SNETP and setting up the SSCNET communication
drivers.
(SNETP can be reinstalled with the interface card loaded.)
(4) If, after SSCNET communication has been made, you remove the
interface card and boot the personal computer without that card being
reinstalled, Windows NT may not start or may not run properly.
For Windows NT, you need to stop the SSCNET communication driver
when removing the interface card.
For the way to stop, refer to "4.5 Stopping the SSCNET Communication
Driver".
(For Windows 98, use the plug and play function to remove. Using this
function will not cause such phenomena.)
(5) If the resume function, suspension setting, power-saving function or
stand-by mode is set at the personal computer used for communication
with the motion CPU, a communication error may occur.
Do not use these functions at the personal computer used for
communication with the motion CPU.
(6) If the USB cable is connected or disconnected or the motion CPU is reset
or turned off and on frequently during communication of the motion CPU,
an unrecoverable communication error may occur.
Disconnect the GSV application from the line* whenever possible when
disconnecting or connecting the USB cable or resetting or turning on or
off the motion CPU.
If a communication error is not removed, disconnect the USB cable
completely and, after five seconds, connect it again. (Though an error
may occur during the first communication session after this operation, the
correct function is recovered at and after the second session.)
However, a communication error may not be removed even after the
above operation with some personal computer models.
In this case, reset the personal computer.
* Offline state (disconnection from line)
State where there is no communication with the motion CPU (Program
or parameter reading/writing, monitoring and testing are made in the
online state.)
(7) A communication error may occur according to some combination of the
model of the personal computers and the USB cable and so on.
If this happens, repeat operation while referring to the displayed
message.
(8) If the baud rate of the serial port of the personal computer (interface on
the personal computer side) is changed for high speed communication,
communication may be unsuccessful or communication retries may occur
to result in slow communication, according to certain personal computer
performance.
If high speed communication is unsuccessful, decrease the baud rate.
(9) USB cable
• The USB cable can be used with Windows 98 or with a USB driver.
• It cannot be used with Windows NT.
• If the USB cable is used, only one motion CPU can be connected.

(2) Antivirus software
It has been reported that when the "Norton AntiVirus 2000" antivirus software
of Symantec Corporation has been installed in the personal computer, specifying Office 2000 as a control feature from an external program will run the micro virus check software, one of the "Norton AntiVirus 2000" functions, making
Office 2000 uncontrollable from other programs.
Hence, when "Norton AntiVirus 2000" has been installed, SW20RN-DOCPRNP
that controls Office 2000 externally cannot be booted.
The following are the corrective actions for the above problem.
(a) When it is not necessary to make virus checks
Uninstall "Norton AntiVirus 2000".
(b) When it is necessary to make virus checks
Remove only the micro virus check software of "Norton AntiVirus 2000".
In this case, the other virus checks are performed.
For more information on the micro virus check software problems of "Norton
AntiVirus 2000", refer to the home page of Microsoft Corporation or Symantec

Precautions for simultaneous operation of SW6RNC-GSVE and GX Developer
(1) If SW6RN-SNETP is used for communication over SSCNET
To use the SW6RN-GSV application (communication over SSCNET) and GX
Developer (communication via RS232C/USB) simultaneously, take care of the
starting and terminating sequence of applications.
[Starting sequence]
• SW6RN-SNETP ---> GSV[ ][ ]P/DOSCP/GX Developer
[Terminating sequence]
• GSV[ ][ ]P/DOSCP/GX Developer ---> SW6RN-SNETP
If the above sequence is not observed, the following phenomena will occur.
(a) If SNETP is started after GX Developer is started
Though the VLINKS window is not displayed, communication over SSCNET
is performed correctly, and there is no problem in the operation.
(b) If SNETP is terminated though GX Developer is not terminated
The VLINKS window remains but it is terminated when GX Developer is
terminated.
Or SNETP is started without termination of GX Developer, so that communication over SSCNET functions correctly.
Do not close the VLINKS window manually because otherwise the following
phenomenon will occur.
• When SNETP is started next time, VLINKS does not start and correct
communication over SSCNET becomes unavailable.
If the window is closed manually, exit from GX Developer and restart
SNETP.
(c) If GX Developer is started after SNETP is terminated, the following error
may occur.
If this error occurs, terminate GX Developer then restart.

Registering the SSCNET Communication Drivers
When using the interface board on Windows 98 to make SSCNET communication,
register the SSCNET communication drivers in the following procedure. (The
following operation is not required when using the interface card on Windows NT or
Windows 98.)
Since the interface board is not compatible with the plug and play function of
Windows 98, you need to register the SSCNET communication drivers to Windows
98 after installing SNETP and setting up the SSCNET communication drivers.
(When reinstalling SNETP, the SSCNET communication drivers are already
registered and need not be registered again.)
