For Safe Operations
1. Prevention of electric shocks
DANGER
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 Motion controller and servo amplifier are
charged and may lead to electric shocks.
Completely turn off the externally supplied power used in the system before mounting or removing the
module, performing wiring work, or inspections. Failing to do so 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.
Be sure to ground the Motion controller, servo amplifier and servomotor. (Ground resistance :
100 or less) 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 Motion controller, 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 Motion controller, servo amplifier or servomotor terminal blocks while the power
is ON, as this may lead to electric shocks.
Do not touch the built-in power supply, built-in grounding or signal wires of the Motion controller
and servo amplifier, as this may lead to electric shocks.
2. For fire prevention
CAUTION
Install the Motion controller, servo amplifier, servomotor and regenerative resistor on
incombustible. Installing them directly or close to combustibles will lead to fire.
If a fault occurs in the Motion controller or servo amplifier, shut the power OFF at the servo
amplifier’s power source. If a large current continues to flow, fire 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 fire.
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 fire.
Do not damage, apply excessive stress, place heavy things on or sandwich the cables, as this may
lead to fire.
A-2
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.
Do not touch the heat radiating fins of controller or servo amplifier, regenerative resistor and
servomotor, etc., while the power is ON and for a short time after the power is turned OFF. In this
timing, these parts become very hot and 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 Motion controller and servo amplifier power source.
If installation of an electromagnetic contactor for power shut off during an error, etc., is specified in
the instruction manual for the servo amplifier, etc., always install the electromagnetic contactor.
Install the emergency stop circuit externally so that the operation can be stopped immediately and
the power shut off.
Use the Motion controller, servo amplifier, servomotor and regenerative resistor with the correct
combinations listed in the instruction manual. Other combinations may lead to fire or faults.
Use the CPU module, base unit and motion module with the correct combinations listed in the
instruction manual. Other combinations may lead to faults.
If safety standards (ex., robot safety rules, etc.,) apply to the system using the Motion controller,
servo amplifier and servomotor, make sure that the safety standards are satisfied.
Construct a safety circuit externally of the Motion controller or servo amplifier if the abnormal
operation of the Motion controller or servo amplifier differ from the safety directive operation in the
system.
In systems where coasting of the servomotor will be a problem during the forced stop, emergency
stop, servo OFF or power supply 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 the forced stop,
emergency stop, servo OFF or power supply OFF, use both dynamic brakes and electromagnetic
brakes.
A-3
CAUTION
The dynamic brakes must be used only on errors that cause the forced stop, emergency stop, or
servo OFF. These brakes must not be used for normal braking.
The brakes (electromagnetic brakes) assembled into the servomotor are for holding applications,
and must not be used for normal braking.
The system must have a mechanical allowance so that the machine itself can stop even if the
stroke limits 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.
Use wires and cables within the length of the range described in the instruction manual.
The ratings and characteristics of the parts (other than Motion controller, servo amplifier and
servomotor) used in a system must be compatible with the Motion controller, 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 electromagnetic 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 Motion controller, 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 supply module. 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.
A-4
CAUTION
Use the program commands for the program with the conditions specified in the instruction
manual.

2 SYSTEM CONFIGURATION
2.1.3 Function explanation of the Q173DCPU/Q172DCPU Motion CPU modules
(1) Up to 32 axes servo amplifiers per 2 systems (up to 16 axes per 1 system) can be
used in Q173DCPU. Up to 8 axes servo amplifiers per 1 system can be used in
Q172DCPU.
(2) It is possible to set the program which synchronized with the motion operation
cycle and executed at fixed cycle (0.88[ms], 1.77[ms], 3.55[ms], 7.11[ms],
14.2[ms]).
(3) It is possible to execute a download of servo parameters to servo amplifier, servo
ON/OFF to servo amplifier and position commands, etc. by connecting between
the Q173DCPU/Q172DCPU and servo amplifier with SSCNET cable.
(4) It is possible to select the servo control functions/programming languages by
installing the corresponding operating system software in the Q173DCPU/
Q172DCPU.
(5) Motion modules (Q172DLX/Q172DEX/Q173DPX) are controlled with the
Q173DCPU/Q172DCPU, and the signals such as stroke limit signals connected to
Motion modules and synchronous encoder are used as motion control.
(6) PLC I/O modules can be controlled with the Q173DCPU/Q172DCPU.
(Refer to Section 2.2 (2) for PLC I/O modules that can be controlled with Motion
CPU.)
(7) Data exchange between CPU modules is possible by Multiple CPU high speed
transmission memory or automatic refresh in the Multiple CPU system.
2-7
2 SYSTEM CONFIGURATION
2.1.4 Restrictions on Motion systems
(1) Combination of Multiple CPU system
(a) Motion CPU module cannot be used as standalone module.
Be sure to install the universal model PLC CPU module (Q03UDCPU/
Q04UDHCPU/Q06UDHCPU) to CPU No.1.
For Universal model PLC CPU module, "Multiple CPU high speed
transmission function" must be set in the Multiple CPU settings.
(b) Only Multiple CPU high speed main base unit (Q38DB/Q312DB) can be
used.
(c) The combination of Q173DCPU/Q172DCPU and Q173HCPU(-T)/
Q172HCPU(-T)/Q173CPUN(-T)/Q172CPUN(-T) cannot be used.
(d) Up to four modules of PLC CPU modules (Q03UDCPU/Q04UDHCPU/
Q06UDHCPU/Motion CPU modules can be installed from the CPU slot (the
slot on the right side of power supply module) to slot 2 of the main base unit.
CPU modules called as CPU No.1 to CPU No.4 from the left sequentially.
There is no restriction on the installation order of CPU No.2 to No.4.
For CPU module except CPU No.1, an empty slot can be reserved for
addition of CPU module. An empty slot can be set between CPU modules.
However, the installation condition when combining with the High
performance PLC CPU module/Process CPU module/PC CPU module/C
controller module is different depending on the specification of CPU
modules, refer to the Manuals of each CPU modules.
(e) It takes about 10 seconds to startup (state that can be controlled) of Motion
CPU. Make a Multiple CPU synchronous startup setting suitable for the
system.
(f) Execute the automatic refresh of the Motion CPU modules and PLC CPU
modules (Q03UDCPU/Q04UDHCPU/Q06UDHCPU) by using the automatic
refresh of Multiple CPU high speed transmission area setting.
When the High performance PLC CPU module/Process CPU module/PC
CPU module/C controller module is installed in the combination of Multiple
CPU system, the Motion CPU module cannot be execute the automatic
refresh with these modules.
(g) Use the Motion dedicated PLC instructions that starts by "D(P).". The Motion
dedicated PLC instructions that starts by "S(P)." cannot be used. When the
High performance PLC CPU module/Process CPU module/PC CPU
module/C controller module is installed in the combination of Multiple CPU
system, the Motion dedicated PLC instruction from these modules cannot be
executed.

(a) Installation position of Q172DEX
It cannot be used on the extension base unit.
(b) Q172DLX/Q173DPX can be installed on any of the main base unit/
extension base unit.
(Note-1)
(c) Q172DLX/Q172DEX
/Q173DPX cannot be installed in CPU slot and I/O
slot 0 to 2 of the main base unit. Wrong installation might damage the main
base unit.
(d) Q172EX(-S1/-S2/-S3)/Q172LX/Q173PX(-S1) for Q173HCPU(-T)/
Q172HCPU(-T)/Q173CPUN(-T)/Q172CPUN(-T)/Q173CPU/Q172CPU
cannot be used.
(e) Be sure to use the Motion CPU as the control CPU of Motion modules
(Note-1)
, Q173DPX, etc.) for Motion CPU. They will not
(Q172DLX, Q172DEX
operate correctly if PLC CPU is set and installed as the control CPU by
mistake. Motion CPU is treated as a 32-point intelligent module by PLC
CPU of other CPU.
(Note-1) : Q172DEX can be used in SV22. It cannot be used in SV13.
2-9
2 SYSTEM CONFIGURATION
(3) Other restrictions
(a) Motion CPU module cannot be set as the control CPU of intelligent function
module (except some modules) or Graphic Operation Terminal(GOT).
(b) Be sure to use the external battery.
(c) There are following methods to execute the forced stop input.
• Use a EMI terminal of Motion CPU module
• Use a device set in the forced stop input setting of system setting
(d) Forced stop input for EMI terminal of Motion CPU module cannot be
invalidated by the parameter.
When the device set in the forced stop input setting is used without use of
EMI terminal of Motion CPU module, apply 24VDC voltage on EMI terminal
and invalidate the forced stop input of EMI terminal.
(e) Be sure to use the cable for forced stop input (sold separately). The forced
stop cannot be released without using it.
(f) When the operation cycle is 0.4[ms], set the system setting as the axis select
switch of servo amplifier "0 to 7".
If the axis select switch of servo amplifier "8 to F" is set, the servo amplifiers
are not recognized.
(g) When a Multiple CPU system is configured, make sure to configure the
modules so that the total current consumption of individual modules on the
main base does not exceed the 5VDC output capacity of power supply
module.
(Refer to Section 2.4.2 (3) "Selection of the power supply module".)
(h) It is impossible to mount the main base unit by DIN rail when using the
Motion CPU module.
Doing so could result in vibration that may cause erroneous operation.

2 SYSTEM CONFIGURATION
POINTS
(Note-1) : Overcurrent protection
The overcurrent protection device shuts off the 5V, 24VDC circuit and
stops the system if the current flowing in the circuit exceeds the specified
value.
The LED of the power supply module is turned off or lights up in dim
green when voltage is lowered. If this device is activated, switch the
input power supply off and eliminate the cause such as insufficient
current capacity or short. Then, a few minutes later, switch it on to restart
the system.
The initial start for the system takes place when the current value
becomes normal.
(Note-2) : Overvoltage protection
The overvoltage protection device shuts off the 5VDC circuit and stops
the system if a voltage of 5.5VDC or more is applied to the circuit.
When this device is activated, the power supply module LED is switched
OFF.
If this happens, switch the input power OFF, then a few minutes later
ON. This causes the initial start for the system to take place. The power
supply module must be changed if the system is not booted and the LED
remains OFF.
2 - 29
2 SYSTEM CONFIGURATION
POINTS
(Note-3) : Allowable momentary power failure period
(1) For AC input power supply
(a) An instantaneous power failure lasting less than 20ms will cause
AC down to be detected, but operation will continue.
(b) An instantaneous power failure lasting in excess of 20ms may
cause the operation to continue or initial start to take place
depending on the power supply load.
Further, when the AC supply of the AC input module is the same
as that of the power supply module, it prevents the sensor
connected to the AC input module, which is ON at power-off,
from turning OFF by switching off the power supply.
However, if only the AC input module is connected to the AC line,
which is connected to the power supply, detection of the AC
down for the power supply module may be delayed by the
capacitor in the AC input module. Thus, connect a load of
approx. 30mA per AC input module to the AC line.
(2) For DC input power supply
(Note)
will
(a) An instantaneous power failure lasting less than 10ms
cause 24VDC down to be detected, but operation will continue.
(Note)
(b) An instantaneous power failure lasting in excess of 10ms
may cause the operation to continue or initial start to take place
depending on the power supply load.
(Note) : This is for a 24VDC input. This is 10ms or less for less
then 24VDC.
(Note-4) : Inrush current
When power is switched on again immediately (within 5 seconds) after
power-off, an inrush current of more than the specified value (2ms or
less) may flow. Reapply power 5 seconds after power-off.
When selecting a fuse and breaker in the external circuit, take account
of the blow out, detection characteristics and above matters.

(2) The Q63P is dedicated for inputting a voltage of 24VDC.
Do not input a voltage of except 24VDC into it or trouble may occur on the Q63P.
(3) Q64P automatically switches the input range 100/200VAC.
Therefore, it is not compatible with the intermediate voltage (133 to 169VAC).
The CPU module may not work normally if the above intermediate voltage is
applied.
(4) Ensure that the earth terminals LG and FG are grounded.
(Ground resistance : 100 or loss)
Since the LG terminal has a half of the input voltage, touching this terminal may
result in an electric shock.
(5) When the Q61P-A1, Q61P-A2, Q61P, Q62P, Q63P or Q64P is loaded on the
extension base unit, a system error cannot be detected by the ERR terminal.

It is possible to allocate unique I/O No.s for each Motion CPU independently of
the PLC’s I/O No.s. (I/O No.s are unique between the Q series PLC CPU within a
given system, but the I/O No.s of the Motion CPU are unique for each Motion
CPU.)

characteristics of the memory.
POINTS
The self-discharge influences the life of battery without the connection to Q172DEX.
The external battery should be exchanged approximately every 4 or 5 years.
And, exchange the battery with a new one in 4 to 5 years even if a total power
failure time is guaranteed value or less.
CAUTION
Do not short a battery.
Do not charge a battery.
Do not disassemble a battery.
Do not burn a battery.
Do not overheat a battery.
Do not solder the battery terminals.
Before touching the battery, always touch grounded metal, etc. to discharge static electricity from

amplifiers.
Between the Motion CPU module and servo amplifiers is connected by SSCNET
cable. When using the Q172DCPU, only 1 SSCNET cable for connection to servo
amplifier can be used. (Connect to CN1.) When using the Q173DCPU, up to 2
SSCNET cables for connection to servo amplifier can be used. (Connect to CN1 and
CN2.)
Up to 16 servo amplifies can be connected to 1 SSCNET cable.
(However, when using the Q172DCPU, up to 8 servo amplifiers can be connected.)

2 SYSTEM CONFIGURATION
POINTS
(1) Be sure to connect SSCNET cable with the above connector. If the
connection is mistaken, between the Motion CPU module and servo amplifier
cannot be communicated.
(2) SSCNET connector is put a cap to protect light device inside connector from
dust. For this reason, do not remove a cap until just before connecting
SSCNET cable. Then, when removing SSCNET cable, make sure to put a
cap.
(3) Be sure to keep a cap and the tube for protecting light code end of SSCNET
cable in a plastic bag with a zipper of SSCNET cable to prevent them from
becoming dirty.
(4) Do not remove the SSCNET cable while turning on the power supply of
Multiple CPU system and servo amplifier.
Do not see directly the light generated from SSCNET connector of Motion
CPU module or servo amplifier and the end of SSCNET cable. When the
light gets into eye, may feel something is wrong for eye. (The light source of
SSCNET cable complies with class1 defined in JISC6802 or
IEC60825-1.)
(5) When exchanging the servo amplifier or Motion CPU module, make sure to put
a cap on SSCNET connector. When asking repair of servo amplifier or
Motion CPU module for some troubles, make also sure to put a cap on
SSCNET connector. When the connector is not put a cap, the light device
may be damaged at the transit. In this case, exchange and repair of light
device is required.

Axis No. is used to set the axis numbers of servo amplifiers connected to
SSCNET connector(CN ) in the program.
Axis No. of 1 to 32 can be set for Q173DCPU, and axis No. of 1 to 8 can be set
for Q172DCPU.
Axis No. is set for each system with SSCNET structure screen of system setting
of MT Developer. Axis No. (Q173DCPU:1 to 32/Q172DCPU:1 to 8) is allocated
and set for the setting axis number (d01 to d16) of servo amplifier.
Since the axis number (d01 to d16) of servo amplifier on the SSCNET structure
screen corresponds to axis select switch (0 to F) of servo amplifier, set the axis
select switch referring to the table of next page.

and vibrations in consideration of heat generated from modules and
handling of module installation.
!
CAUTION
Provide appropriate circuits external to the Motion CPU to prevent cases where danger may result
from abnormal operation of the overall system in the event of an external power supply fault or
Motion CPU failure.
Mount the Motion controller, servo amplifier, servomotor and regenerative resistor on
incombustible. Mounting them directly or close to combustibles will lead to fire.
If a fault occurs in the Motion controller or servo amplifier, shut the power OFF at the servo
amplifier’s power source. If a large current continues to flow, fire 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 fire.
Always take heat measures such as flame proofing for the inside of the control panel where the
servo amplifier or regenerative resistor is mounted and for the wires used. Failing to do so may
lead to fire.
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 polarity ( + / - ), as this may lead to destruction or damage.
3-2
3 DESIGN
!
CAUTION
Do not touch the heat radiating fins of controller or servo amplifier, regenerative resistor and
servomotor, etc. while the power is ON and for a short time after the power is turned OFF. In this
timing, these parts become very hot and 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.
Always mount a leakage breaker on the Motion controller and servo amplifier power source.
If mounting of an electromagnetic contactor for power shut off during an error, etc., is specified in
the instruction manual for the servo amplifier, etc., always mount the electromagnetic contactor.
Mount an emergency stop circuit externally so that the operation can be stopped immediately and
the power shut off.
Use the Motion controller, servo amplifier, servomotor and regenerative resistor with the correct
combinations listed in the instruction manual. Other combinations may lead to fire or faults.
If safety standards (ex., robot safety rules, etc.,) apply to the system using the Motion controller,
servo amplifier and servomotor, make sure that the safety standards are satisfied.
Construct a safety circuit externally of the Motion controller or servo amplifier if the abnormal
operation of the Motion controller or servo amplifier differ from the safety directive operation in
the system.
In systems where coasting of the servomotor will be a problem during the forced stop, the
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 the forced stop, the
emergency stop, servo OFF or when the power is shut OFF, use both dynamic brakes and
electromagnetic brakes.
The dynamic brakes must be used only during the forced stop, the emergency stop and errors
where servo OFF occurs. These brakes must not be used for normal braking.
The brakes (electromagnetic brakes) assembled into the servomotor are for holding applications,
and must not be used for normal braking.
The system must have a mechanical allowance so that the machine itself can stop even if the
stroke limits 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.
Use wires and cables within the length of the range described in the instruction manual.
The ratings and characteristics of the parts (other than Motion controller, servo amplifier,
servomotor) used in a system must be compatible with the Motion controller, 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 electromagnetic brakes is not possible due to
the life or mechanical structure (when the ball screw and servomotor are connected with a
timing belt, etc.). Mount a stopping device to ensure safety on the machine side.

(Note-1) : When the control power supply of servo amplifier is shut off, it is not possible to communicate with the servo amplifier after that.
Example) When the control power supply L11/L21 of servo amplifier in above B figure is shut off, it is also not possible to
communicate with the servo amplifier C .
If only a specific servo amplifier power supply is shut off, be sure to shut off the main circuit power supply L1/L2/L3, and do not
shut off the control power supply L11/L21.
(Note-2) : Be sure to shut off the both of main circuit power supply L1/L2/L3 and control power supply L11/L21 at the time of exchange of
servo amplifier. At this time, it is not possible to communicate between the servo amplifier and Motion controller. Therefore, be
sure to exchange the servo amplifier after stopping the operating of machine beforehand.

(2) Grounding
The Motion system may malfunction as it is affected by various noises such as
electric path noises from the power supply systems, radiated and induced noises
from other equipment, servo amplifiers and their cables, and electromagnetic
noises from conductors. To avoid such troubles, connect the earthing ground of
each equipment and the shield grounds of the shielded cables to the earth.
For grounding, use the exclusive ground terminal wire of each equipment or a
single-point earth method to avoid grounding by common wiring, where possible,
since noises may sneak from other equipment due to common impedances.

3.2.2 Safety circuit design
(1) Concept of safety circuits
When the Multiple CPU system is powered on and off, normal control output may
not be done momentarily due to a delay or a startup time difference between the
Multiple CPU system power supply and the external power supply (DC in
particular) for the control target.
Also, an abnormal operation may be performed if an external power supply fault
or Motion controller failure takes place.
To prevent any of these abnormal operations from leading to the abnormal
operation of the whole system and in a fail-safe viewpoint, areas which can result
in machine breakdown and accidents due to abnormal operations
(e.g. emergency stop, protective and interlock circuits) should be constructed
outside the Multiple CPU system.
(2) Emergency stop circuit
The circuit should be constructed outside of the Multiple CPU system or servo
amplifier. Shut off the power supply to the external servo amplifier by this circuit,
make the electromagnetic brakes of the servomotor operated.
(3) Forced stop circuit
(a) The forced stop of all servo amplifiers is possible in a lump by using the EMI
forced stop input of Motion CPU modules. After forced stop, the forced stop
factor is removed and the forced stop canceled.
(The servo error detection signal does not turn on with the forced stop.)
The EMI forced stop input cannot be invalidated in the parameter setting of
system setting.
Make the forced stop input cable within 30m(98.43ft.).
The wiring example for the EMI forced stop input of Motion CPU module is
shown below.

The forced stop input can be set by allocation of the device number in the
parameter setting of system setting. When the device is used, apply 24VDC
voltage on EMI terminal and invalidate the forced stop input of EMI terminal.

3.3.3 Calculating heat generation by Motion controller
The ambient temperature inside the panel storing the Motion controller must be
suppressed to an ambient temperature of 55°C(131°F) or less, which is specified for
the Motion controller.
For the design of a heat releasing panel, it is necessary to know the average power
consumption (heating value) of the devices and instruments stored inside.
Here the method of obtaining the average power consumption of Q173DCPU/
Q172DCPU system is described. From the power consumption, calculate a rise in
ambient temperature inside the control panel.
How to calculate average power consumption
The power consuming parts of the Motion controller are roughly classified into six
blocks as shown below.
(1) Power consumption of power supply module
The power conversion efficiency of the power supply module is approx. 70[%],
while 30 [%] of the output power is consumed as heat. As a result, 3/7 of the
output power is the power consumption.
Therefore the calculation formula is as follows.
3
Wpw=
(I5V 5) [W]
7
I5V: Current consumption of logic 5 VDC circuit of each module
(2) Total power consumption for 5VDC logic circuits of all modules
(including CPU module)
The power consumption of the 5 VDC output circuit section of the power supply
module is the power consumption of each module (including the current
consumption of the base unit).
W5V = I5V
5 [W]
(3) A total of 24 VDC average power consumption of the output
module
The average power of the external 24 VDC power is the total power consumption
of each module.
W24V = I24V 24 Simultaneous ON rate [W]
I24V: Average current consumption of 24VDC power supply for internal
consumption of the output module [A]
(Power consumption for simultaneous ON points)
(4) Average power consumption due to voltage drop in the output
section of the output module
(Power consumption for simultaneous ON points)
WOUT = IOUT
Vdrop
Number of outputs
Simultaneous ON rate [W]
IOUT : Output current (Current in actual use) [A]
Vdrop : Voltage drop in each output module [V]
3 - 13

(5) Average power consumption of the input section of the input
module
(Power consumption for simultaneous ON points)
WIN = IIN
IIN
E
E
Number of input points
Simultaneous ON rate [W]
: Input current (Effective value for AC) [A]
: Input voltage (Voltage in actual use) [V]
(6) Power consumption of the external power supply section of the
intelligent function module
WS = I5V
5 + I24V
24 + I100V
100 [W]
The total of the power consumption values calculated for each block is the power
consumption of the overall sequencer system
W = W PW + W5V + W 24V + WOUT + WIN + WS [W]
From this overall power consumption [W], calculate the heating value and a rise
in ambient temperature inside the panel.
The outline of the calculation formula for a rise in ambient temperature inside the
panel is shown below.
T=
W
[C]
UA
W : Power consumption of overall Motion system (value obtained above)
2
A : Surface area inside the panel [m ]
U : When the ambient temperature inside the panel is uniformed by a fan ...... 6
When air inside the panel is not circulated.............................................. 4
POINT
If the temperature inside the panel has exceeded the specified range, it is
recommended to mount a heat exchanger to the panel to lower the temperature.
If a normal ventilating fan is used, dust will be sucked into the Motion controller
together with the external air, and it may affect the performance of the Motion
controller.

4.1.1 Instructions for handling
CAUTION
Use the Motion controller in an environment that meets the general specifications contained in this
manual. Using this Motion controller in an environment outside the range of the general specifications
could result in electric shock, fire, operation failure, and damage to or deterioration of the product.
While pressing the installation lever located at the bottom of module, insert the module fixing tab into
the fixing hole in the base unit until it stops. Then, securely install the module with the fixing hole as a
supporting point. Incorrect installation of the module can cause an operation failure, failure or drop.
When using the Motion controller in the environment of much vibration, tighten the module with a screw.
Tighten the screw in the specified torque range. Under tightening may cause a drop, short circuit or
operation failure. Over tightening may cause a drop, short circuit or operation failure due to damage to
the screw or module.
Be sure to connect the extension cable to connectors of the base unit correctly. After connecting,
check them for looseness. Poor connections could cause an input or output failure.
Completely turn off the externally supplied power used in the system before installation or removing
the module. Not doing so could result in electric shock or damage to the product.
Do not install/remove the module onto/from base unit or terminal block more than 50 times, after the
first use of the product. Failure to do so may cause the module to malfunction due to poor contact of
connector.
Do not directly touch the module's conductive parts and electronic components. Touching them
could cause an operation failure or give damage to the module.
This section describes instructions for handling the CPU, I/O, intelligent function and
power supply modules, base units and so on.
(1) Module, terminal block connectors and pin connectors are made of resin; do not
drop them or subject them to strong impact.
(2) Do not remove modules' printed circuit boards from the enclosure in order to avoid
changes in operation.
(3) Tighten the module fixing screws and terminal block screws within the tightening

4 INSTALLATION AND WIRING
POINTS
(1) Forcibly removal the SSCNET cable from the Motion CPU module will
damage the Motion CPU modules and SSCNET cables.
(2) After removal of the SSCNET cable, be sure to put a cap on the SSCNET
connector. Otherwise, adhesion of dirt deteriorates in characteristic and it may
cause malfunctions.
(3) Do not remove the SSCNET cable while turning on the power supply of
Multiple CPU system and servo amplifier.
Do not see directly the light generated from SSCNET connector of Motion
CPU module or servo amplifier and the end of SSCNET cable. When the
light gets into eye, may feel something is wrong for eye. (The light source of
SSCNET cable complies with class1 defined in JISC6802 or
IEC60825-1.)
(4) If the SSCNET cable is added a power such as a major shock, lateral
pressure, haul, sudden bending or twist, its inside distorts or brakes, and
optical transmission will mot be available.
Be sure to take care enough so that the short SSCNET cable is added a
twist easily.
(5) Be sure to use the SSCNET cable within the range of operating temperature
described in this manual. Especially, as optical fiber for MR-J3BUS M and
MR-J3BUS M-A are made of synthetic resin, it melts down if being left near
the fire or high temperature. The cable part and code part melt down if being
left near the fire or high temperature. Therefore, do not make it touched the
part which becomes high temperature, such as radiator or regenerative brake
option of servo amplifier, or servomotor.

POINTS
(8) Put the SSCNET cable in the duct or fix the cable at the closest part to the
Motion CPU module with bundle material in order to prevent SSCNET cable
from putting its own weight on SSCNET connector.
When laying cable, the optical cord should be given loose slack to avoid from
becoming smaller than the minimum bend radius, and it should not be twisted.
Also, fix and hold it in position with using cushioning such as sponge or rubber
which does not contain plasticizing material.
(9) If the adhesion of solvent and oil to the code part of SSCNET cable may
lower the optical characteristic and machine characteristic. If it is used such an
environment, be sure to do the protection measures to the cord part.
(10) When keeping the Motion CPU or servo amplifier, be sure to put on a cap to
connector part so that a dirt should not adhere to the end of SSCNET
connector.
(11) SSCNET connector is put a cap to protect light device inside connector from
dust. For this reason, do not remove a cap until just before connecting
SSCNET cable. Then, when removing SSCNET cable, make sure to put a
cap.
(12) Be sure to keep a cap and the tube for protecting light code end of SSCNET
cable in a plastic bag with a zipper of SSCNET cable to prevent them from
becoming dirty.
(13) When exchanging the servo amplifier or Motion controller, make sure to put a
cap on SSCNET connector. When asking repair of servo amplifier or Motion
controller for some troubles, make also sure to put a cap on SSCNET
connector. When the connector is not put a cap, the light device may be
damaged at the transit. In this case, exchange and repair of light device is
required.

4.3 Mounting of Serial Absolute Synchronous Encoder
This section describes precautions for handling the serial absolute synchronous
encoder (Q170ENC).
(1) If the serial absolute synchronous encoder is linked to a chain, timing belt, or
gears, the machine rotating shaft should be supported by a separate bearing
and connected to Q170ENC through a coupling. Ensure that excessive force
(greater than the permitted shaft load) is not applied to the shaft of Q170ENC.

(2) Excessive load is applied to the shaft of Q170ENC by the large mounting errors in
eccentricity and angle of deviation As a result, it might damage the machine or
shorten extremely the life.
Minimize loads applied to the shaft such that they make within the permitted shaft
load range.
4 - 16
4 INSTALLATION AND WIRING
CAUTION
The Q170ENC contains a glass disk and precision mechanism. Take care when handling it. The
encoder performance may deteriorate if it is dropped or subjected to shocks or vibration exceeding the
prescribed limits.
Do not connect the shaft of Q170ENC directly to machine side rotary shaft. Always after connecting
the shaft of Q170ENC to another bearing once, connect the shaft through a flexible coupling.

Never hit the end of the Q170ENC coupling shaft with a hammer when connecting the coupling to it.
The large loads applied to Q170ENC will damage it.
The Q170ENC uses optical parts. Mount it in an atmosphere where there are extremely few water
drops and little oil and dust.
In any place where the Q170ENC is exposed to water and/or oil, provide protection from oil and water,
e.g. install a cover. In addition, run the cable downward to prevent oil and/or water from running on the
cable into the Q170ENC. When it is inevitable to mount the Q170ENC vertically or obliquely, trap for
the cable.
Use the Q170ENC within the specified temperature range (-5 to 55°C (23 to 131°F) ).

4.4 Wiring
4.4.1 Instructions for wiring
DANGER
Completely turn off the externally supplied power used in the system before installation or removing
the module. Not doing so could result in electric shock or damage to the product.
When turning on the power supply or operating the module after wiring, be sure that the module's
terminal covers are correctly attached. Not attaching the terminal cover could result in electric shock.
CAUTION
Be sure to ground of the earth terminal FG and LG. Not doing so could result in electric shock or
operation failure. (Ground resistance: 100 or less)
When wiring in the Motion controller, be sure that it is done correctly by checking the product's rated
voltage and the terminal layout. Connecting a power supply that is different from the rating or
incorrectly wiring the product could result in fire or damage.
External connections shall be crimped or pressure welded with the specified tools, or correctly
soldered. Imperfect connections could result in short circuit, fire, or operation failure.
Tighten the terminal screws within the specified torque range. If the terminal screws are loose, it could
result in short circuit, fire, or operation failure. Tightening the terminal screws too far may cause
damages to the screws and/or the module, resulting in drop, short circuit, or operation failure.
Be sure there are no foreign matters such as sawdust or wiring debris inside the module. Such debris
could cause fire, damage, or operation failure.
The module has an ingress prevention label on its top to prevent foreign matter, such as wiring debris,
from entering the module during wiring.
Do not remove this label during wiring.
Before starting system operation, be sure to remove this label because of heat dissipation.
This section described instructions for the wiring of the power supply.
(1) Power supply wiring
(a) 100VAC, 200VAC and 24VDC wires should be twisted as dense as possible
respectively. Connect the modules with the shortest distance.
Also, to reduce the voltage drop to the minimum, use the thickest wires (Up
2
to 2.0mm ) possible.
Use the wires of the following core size for wiring.

POINTS
(1) Separate the ground of the surge absorber for lighting (E1) from that of the
Multiple CPU system (E2).
(2) Select a surge absorber for lighting whose power supply voltage does no
exceed the maximum allowable circuit voltage even at the time of maximum
power supply voltage elevation.
(2) Wiring of I/O equipment
(a) Insulation-sleeved crimping terminals cannot be used with the terminal
block.
It is recommended to cover the wire connections of the crimping terminals
with mark or insulation tubes.
(b) The wires used for connection to the terminal block should be 0.3 to
2
0.75mm in core and 2.8mm (0.11inch) or less in outside diameter.
(c) Run the input and output lines away from each other.
(d) When the wiring cannot be run away from the main circuit and power lines,
use a batch-shielded cable and ground it on the Motion controller side.
In some cases, ground it in the opposite side.

4 INSTALLATION AND WIRING
(g) Wiring of 200m (656.17ft.) or longer distance will give rise to leakage
currents due to the line capacity, resulting in a fault.
Refer to the troubleshooting chapter of the I/O Module User's Manual.
(h) As a countermeasure against the power surge due to lightning, separate the
AC wiring and DC wiring and connect a surge absorber for lightning (Refer
to Section 4.4.1(1)).
Failure to do so increases the risk of I/O device failure due to lightning.
(3) Grounding
For grounding, follow the steps (a) to (c) shown below.

4 INSTALLATION AND WIRING
4.4.3 Precautions of SSCNET
cable wiring
SSCNET cable is made from optical fiber. If optical fiber is added a power such as a
major shock, lateral pressure, haul, sudden bending or twist, its inside distorts or
breaks, and optical transmission will not be available. Especially, as optical fiber for
MR-J3BUS M, MR-J3BUS M-A is made of synthetic resin, it melts down if being left
near the fire or high temperature. Therefore, do not make it touched the part, which
becomes high temperature, such as radiator or regenerative brake option of servo
amplifier.
Be sure to use optical fiber within the range of operating temperature described in this
manual.
Read described item of this section carefully and handle it with caution.
(1) Minimum bend radius
Make sure to lay the cable with greater radius than the minimum bend radius. Do
not press the cable to edges of equipment or others. For SSCNET cable, the
appropriate length should be selected with due consideration for the dimensions
and arrangement of Motion controller or servo amplifier. When closing the door of
control box, pay careful attention for avoiding the case that SSCNET cable is
hold down by the door and the cable bend becomes smaller than the minimum
bend radius.
Model name of SSCNET
cable
MR-J3BUS M
Minimum bend radius[mm(inch)]
25(0.98)
Enforced covering cord : 50 (1.97)
MR-J3BUS M-A
Code : 25 (0.98)
Enforced covering cord : 50 (1.97)
MR-J3BUS M-B
Code : 30 (1.18)
(2) Tension
If tension is added on the SSCNET cable, the increase of transmission loss
occurs because of external force which concentrates on the fixing part of
SSCNET cable or the connecting part of SSCNET connector. At worst, the
breakage of SSCNET cable or damage of SSCNET connector may occur.
For cable laying, handle without putting forced tension. (Refer to "APPENDIX1.1
SSCNET cables" for the tension strength.)
(3) Lateral pressure
If lateral pressure is added on the SSCNET cable, the cable itself distorts,
internal optical fiber gets stressed, and then transmission loss will increase. At
worst, the breakage of optical cable may occur. As the same condition also
occurs at cable laying, do not tighten up SSCNET cable with a thing such as
nylon band (TY-RAP).
Do not trample it down or tuck it down with the door of control box or others.
4 - 23
4 INSTALLATION AND WIRING
(4) Twisting
If the SSCNET cable is twisted, it will become the same stress added condition
as when local lateral pressure or bend is added. Consequently, transmission loss
increases, and the breakage of optical fiber may occur at worst.
(5) Disposal
When incinerating optical cable (cord) used for SSCNET , hydrogen fluoride gas
or hydrogen chloride gas which is corrosive and harmful may be generated. For
disposal of optical fiber, request for specialized industrial waste disposal services
who has incineration facility for disposing hydrogen fluoride gas or hydrogen
chloride gas.
(6) Wiring process of SSCNET
cable
Put the SSCNET cable in the duct or fix the cable at the closest part to the
Motion CPU module with bundle material in order to prevent SSCNET cable
from putting its own weight on SSCNET connector.
Leave the following space for wiring.

6.6.4 I/O module troubleshooting
This section describes possible problems with I/O circuits and their corrective actions.
(1) Input circuit troubleshooting
The following describes possible problems with input circuits and their corrective
actions.
Input Circuit Troubleshooting and Corrective Action
Condition

• Leakage current of input switch
(e.g. drive by non-contact switch).
Example 1
AC input
Input signal

Corrective action
• Connect an appropriate resistor which will
make the voltage across the terminals of the
input module lower than the OFF voltage
value.
AC input
Input signal
is not
turned
OFF.
Leakage
current
It is recommended to use 0.1 to 0.47 [µF] + 47
to 120 [ ] (1/2W) for the CR constant.
• Same as Example 1.
• Provide an independent display circuit
separately.
Input module
Example 3
Power supply

Example 6
Depending on response time setting, noise is
imported as input.
Change the response time setting.
Example : 1 [ms] 5[ms]
(When excessive noise is cyclic, shorter
response time setting may produce a higher
effect.) When the above action does not have
an effect, take measures against noise to block
excessive noise, e.g. avoid tying the power
cables and control cables in a bundle, and add
surge absorbers to the noise sources such as
the relays and contactors used with the same
power supply.
False input

6 INSPECTION AND MAINTENANCE
(c) The power capacity of the resistor selected is 3 to 5 times greater than the
actual current consumption. 220 [ ], 10 to 15 [W] resistor may therefore be
connected to the terminal in question.
(2) Output circuit troubleshooting
The following describes possible problems with output circuits and their
corrective actions.
Output Circuit Troubleshooting and Corrective Action
Condition
Cause
• When load is half-wave rectified
(This is typical some solenoids).
Corrective action
• Connect a resistor of several ten k to
several hundred k across the load.

2)
• When the polarity of the power supply is [1],
the capacitor C is charged. When the
polarity is [2], the voltage charged in C plus
the power supply voltage is applied to across
D1. The maximum value of the voltage is
approx. 2.2E. (This usage does not pose
problems to the output components but may
deteriorate the diode built in the load,
Example 2
causing burnout, etc.) .
• Leakage current due to built-in surge
suppressor.
Output module
Load does
not turn OFF
(Triac output).
• Connect a resistor across the load.
(If the wiring from the output module to the
load is long, be careful since there may be a
leakage current due to the line capacity.)
