Notes on Safety
In this manual, you will find various notes categorized under the following levels with the signal words “DANGER,”
and “CAUTION.”
DANGER
Indicates an imminently hazardous situation which, if not avoided, will result in death or
serious injury.
CAUTION
Indicates a potentially hazardous situation which, if not avoided, may result in minor or
moderate injury and could cause property damage.
Note that there is a possibility that items listed with
CAUTION
may have serious ramifications.
DANGER
• Never use the input and output signals of the TS Series unit for operations that may threaten human life,
cause damage to the system, or as emergency switches. Please design the system so that it can withstand
touch switch malfunctions. Touch switch malfunctions may result in machine accidents or damage.
• Turn off the power supply when you set up the unit, connect new cables, or perform maintenance or
inspections. Failure to do so could cause electric shock or damage to the unit.
• Never touch any terminals while the power is on. Otherwise, electric shock may occur.
• The liquid crystal in the LCD panel is a hazardous substance. If the LCD panel is damaged, avoid ingesting
any leaking liquid crystal. If any liquid crystal spills onto your skin or clothing, use soap to wash it off
thoroughly.
• Never disassemble, recharge, deform by pressure, short-circuit, or reverse the polarity of lithium batteries,
and never dispose of lithium batteries in fire. Failure to follow these conditions may lead to explosion or
ignition.
• Never use lithium batteries that are deformed, leaking, or exhibit any other abnormalities. Failure to follow
these conditions may lead to explosion or ignition.
CAUTION
• Check the appearance of the TS Series unit after unpacking. Do not use the unit if any damage or
deformation is found. Using the unit in such a state may lead to fire, damage, or malfunction.
• Please consult your local distributor before using this product in facilities or systems related to nuclear
energy, aerospace, medical, traffic equipment, or mobile installations.
• Operate (and store) the TS Series unit under the environmental conditions indicated in the general
specifications of this manual and related manuals. Failure to do so could cause fire, malfunction, physical
damage or deterioration.
• Understand the following environmental limits for use and storage of TS Series units. Failure to follow these
conditions may result in fire or damage to the unit.
- Avoid locations where there is a possibility that water, corrosive gas, flammable gas, solvents, grinding
fluids, or cutting oil may come into contact with the unit.
- Avoid high temperature, high humidity, and outside weather conditions, such as wind, rain, or direct
sunlight.
- Avoid locations where excessive dust, salt, or metallic particles are present.
- Avoid installing the unit in a location where vibrations or physical shocks may be transmitted.
• Equipment must be correctly mounted so that the main terminal of the TS Series unit cannot be touched
inadvertently. Failure to do so may result in electric shock or accidents.
• Periodically check that the terminal screws on the power supply terminal block and mounting nuts are firmly
tightened. Using the unit with loose screws may result in fire or malfunction.
• Tighten the terminal screws on the TS Series power supply terminal block to an equal torque of 0.5 to
0.6 N•m (5 to 6 kgf•cm). Failure to tighten these screws properly may result in fire, malfunction, or damage
to the system.
• Tighten the mounting nuts on the TS Series unit to equal torque within the specified range. Note that
excessive tightening may distort the panel surface. Failure to tighten these nuts properly may cause the TS
Series unit to fall, malfunction, or short-circuit.
• The TS Series features a glass screen. Do not drop or impart physical shocks to the unit. Such handling will
damage the unit.
• Connect the cables correctly to the terminals of the TS Series unit in accordance with the specified voltage
and wattage. Failure to supply the correct voltage or wattage, or improper cable connection may cause fire,
malfunction, or damage to the unit.
• Always ground the TS Series unit. Ground the FG terminal of the TS Series unit with an independent D
class grounding (ground resistance of 100 Ω or less). Failure to do so may result in electric shock or fire.
• Prevent any conductive particles from entering into the TS Series unit. Failure to do so may lead to fire,
damage, or malfunction.
• Do not attempt to repair the TS Series unit at your site. Contact Hakko Electronics Co., Ltd. or the
designated contractor for repairs.
• Do not attempt to repair, disassemble, or modify the TS Series unit. Hakko Electronics Co., Ltd. is not
responsible for any damages resulting from repairs, disassembly, or modification of TS Series units
performed by unauthorized personnel.
• Do not use sharp-pointed tools to press touch switches. Doing so may damage the screen.
• Only personnel who possess the required knowledge and technical skills are authorized to set up the unit,
connect the cables, and perform maintenance and inspections.
• Lithium batteries contain combustible material such as lithium and organic solvents. Mishandling may cause
heat, explosion, or ignition resulting in fire or injury. Read the related manuals carefully and handle lithium
batteries correctly as instructed.
• Do not press two or more positions on the screen at the same time. If two or more positions are pressed at
the same time, the switch located between the pressed positions will be activated.
• Take sufficient safety precautions during operations such as changing settings during running, forced output,
start, and stop. Operating errors may cause unexpected machine motions, resulting in machine accidents or
damage.
• In facilities where TS Series unit failure could lead to accidents that threaten human life or result in other
serious damage, make sure that such facilities are equipped with adequate safeguards.
• TS Series units must be disposed of as industrial waste.
• Before touching the TS Series unit, discharge any static electricity from your body by touching grounded
metal. Excessive static electricity may cause malfunction or damage to the unit.
[General Notes]
• Never bundle control cables and communication cables with high-voltage and large-current carrying cables
such as power supply cables. Keep these cables at least 200 mm away from high-voltage and large-current
carrying cables. Otherwise, malfunction may occur due to noise.
• When using the TS Series unit in an environment where a source of high-frequency noise is present, it is
recommended that the FG shielded cable (communication cable) be grounded at both ends. However, the
cable may be grounded only at one end if necessary due to unstable communication conditions or for other
reasons.
• Plug connectors and sockets of the TS Series unit in the correct orientation. Otherwise, malfunction or
damage may occur.
• Do not use thinners for cleaning because it may discolor the surface of the TS Series unit. Use a commercially
available alcohol-based cleaner instead.
• If a “data receive error” occurs when the TS Series unit and the counterpart unit (PLC, temperature controller,
etc.) are started at the same time, read the instruction manual for the counterpart unit and handle the error
accordingly.
• Avoid discharging static electricity on the mounting panel of the TS Series unit. Static charge can cause
malfunctions due to noise.
• Avoid prolonged display of any fixed pattern. An afterimage may remain due to the characteristics of the liquid
crystal display. If a prolonged display of a fixed pattern is expected, use the backlight’s auto OFF function.
[Notes on the LCD Screen]
Note that the following conditions may occur under normal circumstances.
• The response time, brightness, and colors of the TS Series unit may be affected by the ambient temperature.
• Tiny spots (dark or luminescent) may appear on the display due to liquid crystal characteristics.
• Each unit varies slightly with respect to brightness and colors.

Sampling Control Memory
The sampling control memory is used to control the operation and state of the buffering area
function. The allocation and contents of sampling control memory differ in the following manner
according to the buffering area settings.
In this example, [Buffering Area separate settings] are not set, so memory from the [Read Area] is
allocated consecutively in 3 word blocks from “D0”. In addition, the sampling control memory
becomes bit numbers “00” through “03” of “D00003” because buffer number 0 is being used.
• Buffering Area separate settings: Not set
Memory from the [Read Area] is allocated consecutively in 3 word blocks from “D0”.

Sampling Control Memory
The sampling control memory is used to control the operation and state of the buffering area
function. Allocation and the contents of sample control memory differ depending on settings.
In this example, [Buffering Area separate settings] are not set, so memory from the [Read Area] is
allocated consecutively in 3 word blocks from “D0”. In addition, the sampling control memory
becomes bit numbers “04” to “07” of “D00003” because buffer number 1 is being used.
