! SAFETY PRECAUTIONS !
(Always read before starting use)
When using Mitsubishi equipment, thoroughly read this manual and the
associated manuals introduced in the manual. Also pay careful attention to
safety and handle the module properly.
These precautions apply only to the installation of Mitsubishi equipment and the
wiring with the external device. Refer to the user’s manual of the CPU module
to be used for a description of the PLC system safety precautions.
These SAFETY PRECAUTIONS classify the safety precautions into two
categories: "DANGER" and "CAUTION".
DANGER
Procedures which may lead to a dangerous condition and
cause death or serious injury if not carried out properly.
CAUTION
Procedures which may lead to a dangerous condition and
cause superficial to medium injury, or physical damage
only, if not carried out properly.
CAUTION may also
Depending on circumstances, procedures indicated by
be linked to serious results.
In any case, it is important to follow the directions for usage.
Store this manual in a safe place so that you can take it out and read it
whenever necessary. Always forward it to the end user.
[DESIGN PRECAUTIONS]
DANGER
! Some faults of the GOT, this unit or connection cables may keep the
outputs on or off.
An external monitoring circuit should therefore be provided to check for
output signals which may lead to a serious accident.
Otherwise, mis-output or misoperation can cause an accident.
A-1
[INSTALLATION PRECAUTIONS]
DANGER
! When installing and removing this module from the GOT main module be
sure to shut off the power at all external switches. If all the switches are not
turned off, the module could be damaged or malfunction.
! When connecting the bus connection cable to this module be sure to turn
off the switch to all external power switches to the GOT and PC CPU. If all
the switches are not turned off, it may cause malfunction.
CAUTION
! Use this module in an environment that is within the general specifications
written in the GOT User's Manual. If the power supply is used in an
environment that is outside of the general specifications then electric
shock, fire, malfunction, or product damage or degradation could occur.
! For a correct installation, insert the bus connection cable to this module,
A7GT-BUS2S, bus connector conversion module, and base unit connector
until you hear it click.
A bad connection could cause erroneous input or output.
! When installing this module in the GOT main module, install it in the GOT
installation area and be sure it is fastened with a module fastening screw
that is tightened within the specified torque range.
If the module fixing screws are loosen, it may cause malfunction, damage
or falling of the module.
If the module fixing screws are too tight, the GOT main module or the
screws could break.
[Wiring Instructions]
DANGER
! Before starting wiring, always switch off all phases of the power supply
externally.
CAUTION
! During wiring, care should be taken so that foreign matter such as shield
and wire offcuts do not enter this unit.
Otherwise, a fire, fault or misoperation can occur.
A-2
[STARTING AND MAINTENANCE PRECAUTIONS]
DANGER
! Do not change the switch setting while power is on.
! Switch all phases of the GOT external power supply off before cleaning.
Not doing so could result in electric shock.
CAUTION
! Never disassemble or modify the module. This may cause breakdowns,
malfunctioning, injury, and/or fire.
! Do not directly touch the conducted area and electric parts of this module.
It may cause damage and malfunctioning of the module.
! This module is made of resinous materials, and should be protected from
strong shock or impact. It may cause breakdown.
! When disconnecting the communication or power cable from the module,
do not hold and pull the cable part.
When disconnecting the cable having a connector, hold the connector
plugged in the module.
Before disconnecting the cable having no connector, loosen the screws in
the module.
If the cable connected to the module is pulled, the module or cable may be
damaged or a malfunction may occur due to a cable connection fault.
! Before handling the unit, touch a grounded metal or similar object to
discharge the static electricity from the human body.
Failure to do so may cause the unit to fail or mulfunction.
[DISPOSAL PRECAUTIONS]
CAUTION
! When disposing of this product, treat it as industrial waste.

" The grounding wire (green wire, approx. 1m) coming out of the connector of
the user-fabricated connection cable must be connected to the control box
or the like.
" Grounding should be independent where possible.
" Use class D grounding (class 3 grounding) method (grounding resistance is
100 Ω max.).
" The grounding point should be as near as possible to the external I/O
module to minimize the grounding cable length.
" Adjust the grounding cable length according to the grounding position and
install a terminal or the like for grounding.
" When grounding, always connect the FG cable for connection with the GOT
’s power supply terminal block and the FG wire of the user-fabricated
