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 Motion controller, 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.

2.1.3 Function explanation of the Q173HCPU/Q172HCPU Motion CPU modules
(1) Up to 32 axes servo amplifiers per 2 systems (up to 16 axes per 1 system) can be
used in Q173HCPU. Up to 8 axes servo amplifiers per 1 system can be used in
Q172HCPU.
(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 Q173HCPU/Q172HCPU 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 Q173HCPU/
Q172HCPU.
(5) It is possible to use the signals such as stroke limit signals and synchronous
encoder connected to various Motion modules for motion control by setting the
Q173HCPU/Q172HCPU as the control CPU of various motion modules
(Q172LX/Q172EX, etc.).
(6) It is possible to execute not only servo control but also DI/O input/output control
according to programs described in Motion SFC program by setting the
Q173HCPU/Q172HCPU as the control CPU of Q series PLC I/O modules (When
the Motion SFC is used as the operating system software.).
(Refer to Section 2.2 (2) for Q series PLC I/O modules that can be controlled by
Motion CPU.)
(7) It is possible to exchange a data among CPUs such as automatic refresh, as the
Q series PLC Multiple CPU system.
(8) There is no restriction for installation position of Q172LX/Q173PX among modules
controlled by Motion CPU. The installation position of Q172EX is only CPU base
unit.
Set the installation position in the system settings.
(9) It is possible to change a servo program, monitor or execute JOG operation by
connecting the teaching unit (A31TU-D3 /A31TU-DN ).
(Q173HCPU-T/Q172HCPU-T only).
(10) It is possible to execute the synchronous control corresponding to resolution
(262144[PLS/rev]) of servo amplifier (MR-J3- B) by connecting the serial
absolute synchronous encoder (Q170ENC) to Q172EX.

2 SYSTEM CONFIGURATION
(11) The maximum distance between the Motion CPU and servo amplifier, servo
amplifier and servo amplifier of the SSCNET cable on the same bus was set to
50(164.04)[m(ft.)], and the flexibility improved at the Motion system design.
(12) Motion CPU becomes difficult to be influenced of an electromagnetic noise from
servo amplifier, etc. by using the SSCNET cable (optical communication).
2-8
2 SYSTEM CONFIGURATION
2.1.4 Restrictions on Motion systems
(1) It is not allowed to use the Motion CPU as the control CPU of a module installed
on the QA1S6 B extension base unit. PLC CPU must be used as the control
CPU.
(2) Motion CPU module cannot be used as standalone module. It must always be
used in combination with the PLC CPU module (version that supports Multiple
CPU systems). Moreover, it must be installed on the right side of PLC CPU
module. PLC CPU module cannot be installed in a position to the right of Motion
CPU module.
(3) Personal computer CPU unit must be installed on the right side of Motion CPU
module. Motion CPU module cannot be installed in a position to the right of
personal computer CPU unit.
(4) Make sure to use the PLC CPU module in "Q mode".
(5) Motion CPU module cannot be set as the control CPU of intelligent function
module or Graphic Operation Terminal (GOT).
(6) SSCNET cable which connects the Motion CPU and servo amplifier, and the
teaching unit connecting cable which connects the Motion CPU and A31TU(Note-1)
D3 /A31TU-DN
are pulled from the bottom part of unit. Make sure to
secure sufficient space for pulling out the cable when designing the control panel.
(7) Motion CPU module is one module element of Q series multiple PLC system. It
must be set the parameters of Q series multiple PLC system for each PLC CPU.
Motion CPU module must also be set to support the Multiple CPU system in the
system settings.
(8) Make sure to use the Motion CPU as the control CPU of motion modules
(Note-2)
dedicated for Motion CPU (Q172LX, Q172EX
, Q173PX, etc.). They will not
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.
It cannot be accessed from other CPU.
(9) When a Multiple CPU system is configured, make sure to configure the modules
so that the total current consumption of individual modules on the CPU base does
not exceed the 5VDC output capacity of power supply module.
(Refer to Section 2.4.2 (3), (4) "Selection of the power supply module".)
(Note-2)
(10) Installation position of the Q172EX
is only CPU base unit.
(Note-1) : Teaching unit can be used in SV13. It cannot be used in SV22/SV43.

• Initial charging of the Q173HCPU/Q172HCPU
Turn on the power supply and charge the internal rechargeable battery for
eight hours or more, before starting to use the Q173HCPU/Q172HCPU. It
is possible to provide backup power for the IC-RAM memory for at least
200 hours by charging the internal rechargeable battery for eight hours or
more, even if it is empty.
If the battery is charged for five days while applying power eight hours a
day, i.e., 40 hours of normal operation, it will be able to provide backup
power for the IC-RAM memory for 1100 hours.
Battery backup by the external battery will be necessary if there is a
possibility that a continuous power off that lasts longer than the continuous
power failure hours for the internal rechargeable battery specified in the

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 - 31
2 SYSTEM CONFIGURATION
POINTS
(Note-3) : Allowable momentary power failure period
(1) For AC input power supply (QX10, etc.)
• An instantaneous power failure lasting less than 20ms will cause
AC down to be detected, but operation will continue.
• 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)
• An instantaneous power failure lasting less than 10ms
will
cause 24VDC down to be detected, but operation will continue.
(Note)
• 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.

(4) I/O allocations
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.)
ON/OFF data input to the Motion CPU is handled via input devices PX
, while
ON/OFF data output from the Motion CPU is handled via output devices PY
.
It is not mandatory to match the I/O device PX/PY No.s used in the Motion
program with the PLC I/O No.s; but it is recommended to make them match as
much as possible.
The following figure shows an example of I/O allocation.

CAUTION
Always use a shield cable for connection of the SY.ENC connector and external equipment, and
avoid running it close to or bundling it with the power and main circuit cables to minimize the
influence of electromagnetic interface. (Separate them more than 200mm (0.66 ft.) away.)
Connect the shield wire of the connection cable to the FG terminal of the external equipment.
When increasing the cable length, use the cable 50m(164.04ft.) or less. Note that the cable
should be run in the shortest possible distance to avoid induced noise.
Always wire the cables when power is off. Not doing so may damage the circuit of modules.
Wire the cable correctly. Wrong wiring may damage the internal circuit.

(1) Be sure to connect SSCNET cable with the above connector. If the
connection is mistaken, between the Motion controller 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 mounting
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
Motion CPU and servo amplifier.
Do not see directly the light generated from the end of SSCNET cable.
When the light gets into eye, may feel something is wrong for eye. (The light
source of SSCNET cable corresponds to class1 defined in JISC6802 or
IEC60825-1.)
(5) 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.

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.
Install the Motion controller, servo amplifier, servomotor, and regenerative resistor on inflammable
material. Direct installation on flammable material or near flammable material may 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 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 servo amplifier's heat radiating fins, 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 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 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
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 service life time 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.

(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.

3.2.1 Power supply circuit design
This section describes the protective coordination and noise suppression techniques of
the power supply circuit.
(1) Separation and protective coordination (leakage current protection,
over current protection) of power supply systems
When wiring, separate the lines of Multiple CPU system power supplies from
those of the I/O equipment and servo amplifier as shown below.
When there is much noise, connect an insulation transformer.

(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.
Also use ferrite cores (ex., ZCAT3035-1330(TDK make)) to prevent the sneak
noises from the panel personal computer.
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 Motion controller is powered on-off, proper outputs may not be
provided temporarily due to the delays and rise times of the Motion controller
power supply and external I/O control power supplies (especially DC).
Also, abnormal operations may be performed when the external power supply
becomes faulty or the Motion controller fails.
Construct the circuit (emergency stop, protective and interlock circuits, etc.) of
parts which may occur machine breakdown and accidents due to abnormal
operations outside of the Motion controller in a fail-safe viewpoint, to avoid
abnormal operations of whole system.
(2) Emergency stop circuit
The circuit should be constructed outside of the Motion controller 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) It is possible to effect the forced stop all axes of the servo amplifier at once
via the forced stop input of the input modules. After the forced stop, remove
the forced stop factor and cancel the forced stop. (The servo error detection
signal does not turn on with the forced stop.)
It is possible to set the forced stop input No. by the parameter setting of the
system setting.
The forced stop wiring example is shown below.

This section describes the precautions related to install a Motion controller in
an enclosure.
(1) To improve ventilation and permit easy replacement of the module, leave a space
of the following table between the top, bottom, side of the module and any other
object.
(For details on layout design refer to section 4.1.2 "Instructions for installation of
the base unit".)

CAUTION
Due to ventilation problems, do not install the base units vertically or horizontally.
Install the base units on a flat surface. Unevenness or warping of the surface can apply undue
force to printed circuit boards and lead to operation failures.
Avoid installing the base units close to a vibration source, such as a large electromagnetic
contactor or no-fuse breaker. Install them on a separate panel or at a safe distance.
To limit the effects of reflected noise and heat, leave 100mm(3.94inch) or more clearance to
instruments fitted in front of the Motion controller (on the rear of the door).
Similarly, leave 50mm(1.97inch) or more clearance between instruments and the left and right
sides of the base units.

3.3.3 Calculating heat generation by Motion controller
The ambient temperature inside the control panel storing the Motion controller must be
suppressed to a Motion controller operating ambient temperature of 55°C(131°F).
For the design of radiation from the storing panel, it is necessary to know the average
power consumption (heating value) of the devices and instruments stored in the control
panel. Here the method of obtaining the average power consumption of Q173HCPU/
Q172HCPU system is described. From the power consumption, calculate a rise in
ambient temperature inside the control panel.
Calculating average power consumption
The power consuming parts of the Motion controller are roughly classified into six
blocks as shown below.
(1) Power consumption of the power supply module
The power conversion efficiency of the power module is approx. 70 [%], i.e., 30
[%] of the output power is consumed by heating. As a result, 3/7 of the output
power becomes 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) Power consumption of a total of 5 VDC logic section of each
module
The power consumption of the 5 VDC output circuit section of the power 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
(power consumption for simultaneous ON points)
The average power of the external 24 VDC power is the total power consumption
of each module.
W24V = I24V 24 [W]
I24V: Current consumption of the output module
(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 output points
IOUT : Output current (Current in actual use) [A]
Vdrop : Voltage drop in each output module [V]

(5) Average power consumption of the input section of the input
module(Power consumption for simultaneous ON points)
WIN = IIN
E
Number of input points
Simultaneous ON rate [W]

(6) Power consumption of the 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 becomes
the power consumption of the overall Motion 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 control panel.
The outline of the calculation formula for a rise in ambient temperature inside the
control panel is shown below.
W
T=
[C]
UA
W : Power consumption of overall Motion system (value obtained above)
2
A : Surface area inside the control panel[m ]
U : When the ambient temperature inside the control panel
is uniformed by a fan ................................................................................. 6
When air inside the control panel is not circulated.................................. 4
POINT
When a rise in ambient temperature inside the control panel exceeds the specified
limit, it is recommended that you install a heat exchanger in the control panel to
lower the ambient temperature inside the control panel.
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.

!
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.
Hold down the module loading lever at the module bottom, and securely install the module fixing hook
into the fixing hole in the base unit. Incorrect loading 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 install the extension cable to connectors of the base unit correctly. After installation, check
them for looseness. Poor connections could cause an input or output failure.
Completely turn off all lines of power supply externally before loading or unloading the module. Not
doing so could result in electric shock or damage to the product.
Do not directly touch the module's conductive parts. Touching the conductive parts could cause
an operation failure or give damage to the module.
This section describes instructions for handling the CPU modules, I/O modules,

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) Forcibly removal the SSCNET cable from the Motion CPU module will
damage the Motion CPU modules and SSCNET cables.
(3) 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.
(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) 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 not be available.
Be sure to take care enough so that the short SSCNET cable is added a
twist easily.
(6) 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. Therefore, do not make it touched the part which
becomes high temperature, such as radiator or regenerative option of servo
amplifier, or servomotor.

cable, be sure to secure the minimum cable bend
(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.
When bundling the cable, fix and hold it in position by using cushioning such
as sponge or rubber which does not contain migratable plasticizing.
If using adhesive tape for bundling the cable, fire resistant acetate cloth
adhesive tape 570F (Teraoka Seisakusho Co., Ltd) is recommended.

tab of connector connected to the TU connector of Motion CPU (Q173HCPU-T/
Q172HCPU-T) after making sure that the fixing hook have been removed
completely. (First be sure to remove the TU connector of Motion CPU
(Q173HCPU-T/Q172HCPU-T for removal.)
If the connector of teaching unit is removed first, load may be applied and
damaged to a connector of Motion CPU.
POINTS
(1) Forcibly removal the cable for teaching unit from the Motion CPU module will
damage the Motion CPU modules and the cable for teaching unit.
(2) When the cable for teaching unit or short-circuit connector is connected to the
connector for teaching unit, screw them to the connector for teaching unit.
Under tightening can cause a drop, short circuit or operation failure.

4.3 Installation of the Serial Absolute Synchronous Encoder
This section described instructions 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) Large errors in eccentricity and angle of deviation during installation can apply
an excessive force to the Q170ENC shaft, which can cause deterioration in
performance drastically reduce encoder service time.
Minimize loads applied to the shaft such that they lie within the permitted shaft
load range.

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. Install 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 install the Q170ENC vertically or obliquely, trap for
the cable.
Use the Q170ENC within the specified temperature range (-5°C to 55°C (23 to 131°F) ).

4.4.1 Instructions for wiring
!
DANGER
Completely turn off the all lines of the power supply externally before wiring. Not completely turning off
all power 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.

(2) Select a surge absorber for thunder whose power supply voltage does not
exceed the maximum allowable circuit voltage even if 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.

(1) Use the thickest possible (up to 2 mm ) wires for the 100/200 VAC and 24
VDC power cables. Be sure to twist these wires starting at the connection
terminals. To prevent a short circuit should any screws loosen, use solderless
terminals with insulation sleeves.
(2) When the LG terminals and FG terminals are connected, be sure to ground the
wires. Do not connect the LG terminals and FG terminals to anything other than
ground. If LG terminals and FG terminals are connected without grounding the
wires, the Motion controller may be susceptible to noise.
In addition, since the LG terminals have potential of 1/2 input voltage, the
operator may receive an electric shock when touching metal parts.
(3) No system error can be detected by the ERR terminal of an extension base
unit. (ERR terminal is always set off.)

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. Be sure to use optical fiber within
the range of operating temperature described in this manual. Optical fiber 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.
Read described item of this section carefully and handle it with caution.
(1) Minimum bend radius
When laying the SSCNET cable, be sure to secure the minimum cable bend
radius or more.
If it is less than the minimum cable bend radius, it may cause malfunctions due to
characteristic deterioration, wire breakage, etc.
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 code 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, if the SSCNET cable is fixed, do not tighten up optical cable with a
thing such as nylon band (TY-RAP).
(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) 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.

6.1 Maintenance Works
6.1.1 Instruction of inspection works
In order that can use the Motion controller in safety and normal, those items that must
be inspected list below.
!
CAUTION
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 remove 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.
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. Do not ground commonly
with other devices. (Ground resistance : 100
or less)
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.
Perform the daily and periodic inspections according to the instruction manual.
Perform maintenance and inspection after backing up the program and parameters for the Motion
controller and servo amplifier.
Do not place fingers or hands in the clearance when opening or closing any opening.
Periodically replace consumable parts such as batteries according to the instruction manual.
Do not touch the lead sections such as ICs or the connector contacts.
Do not place the Motion controller or servo amplifier on metal that may cause a power leakage or
wood, plastic or vinyl that may cause static electricity buildup.
Do not perform a megger test (insulation resistance measurement) during inspection.
When replacing the Motion controller or servo amplifier, always set the new unit settings correctly.
After maintenance and inspections are completed, confirm that the position detection of the
absolute position detector function is correct.
6-2
6 INSPECTION AND MAINTENANCE
!
CAUTION
Do not short circuit, charge, overheat, incinerate or disassemble the batteries.
The electrolytic capacitor will generate gas during a fault, so do not place your face near the Motion
controller or servo amplifier.
The electrolytic capacitor and fan will deteriorate. Periodically change these to prevent secondary
damage from faults. Replacements can be made by our sales representative.
If an error occurs in the self diagnosis of the Motion controller or servo amplifier, confirm the check
details according to the instruction manual, and restore the operation.
If a dangerous state is predicted in case of a power failure or product failure, in order to prevent that
state, use a servomotor with electromagnetic brakes for maintenance or install a brake mechanism
externally.
Use a double circuit construction so that the electromagnetic brake operation circuit can be operated
by emergency stop signals set externally.
Shut off with servo ON signal OFF,

If an error occurs, remove the cause, secure the safety and then resume operation after alarm
release.
The unit may suddenly restart after a power failure is restored, so do not go near the machine. (Design
the machine so that personal safety can be ensured even if the machine restarts suddenly.)
Confirm and adjust the program and each parameter before operation. Unpredictable movements may
occur depending on the machine.
Extreme adjustments and changes may lead to unstable operation, so never make them.
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 servo amplifier's heat radiating fins, 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.
