main circuit (high-voltage, large-current) line, high-frequency lines such as
inverter lines, and the power line. Otherwise, a malfunction may occur due
to noise.
• This unit must be properly installed according to directions in the installation
guide and user's manual. Improper installation may cause the unit to malfunction, or fail.
• This unit must be properly wired according to directions in the Installation
Guide and User Manual. Improper wiring may cause a malfunction, failure
or electric shock.
• Do not allow foreign substances, including chips, wire pieces, water, or liquids to enter inside this unit's case. Otherwise, a malfunction, failure, electric shock, or fire may occur.
• When disposing of this unit, handle it as an industrial waste.

This section describes both the cables and crimp terminals used
for wiring each type of cable. The fastening torque for the terminal screws should be 0.6 to 1.0 N•m. 1or 2 terminals can be
connected to a single terminal screw.
Communication Cable
The Flex Network interface and the I/O unit, or all distributed
I/O units, are connected using a cross wiring system. (T-type
systems cannot be used.)
Use the following models of communication cables.

The FN-Y08RL41 is a CE Marked unit that conforms to EMC
directives EN55011 ClassA, EN61000-6-2, and EN61131-2*2.
While this unit is officially marked as conforming to the relevant
EMC directives, it is the user’s final application of this unit in a
larger system (i.e. the machinery, wiring, control panel, installation
method, etc.) that will determine if this unit maintains or loses this
conformance marking. Therefore, it is strongly advised that the user
investigate and confirm whether their overall system (i.e. all related
machinery and equipment) also conforms with these EMC directives.
*1 The National Electrical Code states that Class 2 power
supplies and Class 2 transformers should not exceed an
output of 30V, and at 8A or less, should not exceed 100VA.
*2 Applies to selected low voltage directives.
Order Code
Power Cable
• Use as large a cable as possible (up to 1.25 mm2) and be
sure to twist all wire ends before attaching crimp terminals.
• Use the same type crimp terminals as used for the communication cable.
I/O Cable
• Use a cable that is 0.5 to 1.25 mm2 in diameter.
• Use the same type crimp terminals as used for the communication cable.
• Confirm that all I/O unit terminal screws are securely tightened, even if they are not used.
• Do not allow pieces of wire to fall inside the unit.
When preparing the cable wire ends:
- Cover shielded wires with shield tape or with an insulation
- Use insulated crimp terminals.
- If you use a pressure connection terminal without insulation, cover it with a shield tape or an insulation tube. Cover
uninsulated crimp terminals with shield tape or a tube-type

The FN-Y08RL41 unit conforms to the following standards:
UL508 Electrical Control System for Industry
CAN/CSA-C22.2 No.1010-1
(Safety requirements for electrical equipment for measurement, control and laboratory use)
FN-Y08RL41 (UL Registration Model: 2880063-04)
Only use the unit installed with other equipment.
If the unit is installed in an area with no air conditioning
system, be sure to install it in a vertical panel using a DIN
rail or mounting holes. Also, be sure the unit is installed so
it is at least 100 mm away from any adjacent structures or
devices. If these requirements are not met, the heat generated by the unit’s internal components may cause the unit to
fail to meet UL standards requirements.
The power supply unit connected to the I/O unit must be a
UL/c-UL (CSA) approved Class 2 power supply unit or Class
2 transformer*1. When the GLC/LT/GP3000 or multiple I/
O units under load are operated with a single power supply,
the amount of current consumption and full-load current of
the I/O units must be within the rated load of the Class 2
power supply unit or Class 2 power supply transformer. Be
aware that the number of points which can be turned ON
simultaneously may be limited, depending on the amount
of load and load current value.
I/O Unit Installtion
Installing on a DIN rail:
Hook the I/O unit's top face
groove over the top edge of the
DIN rail. Next, push the bottom
of the I/O unit forward until the
attachment hook clicks into
place on the DIN rail.
