Safety
1.1
Conventions
1. Safety
Important safety considerations are indicated throughout the manual by the following
symbols. Be sure to read the descriptions shown with each symbol.
1.2
WARNING
This symbol indicates that a danger of possible serious injury
or death exists if the associated instructions are not followed
properly.
WARNING
This symbol indicates that a danger of possible harm to people
caused by electric shock exists if the associated instructions are
not followed properly.
CAUTION
This symbol indicates that a danger of possible harm to people
or physical damage to equipment and facilities exists if the
associated instructions are not followed properly.
Safety Precautions
For details of Safety, refer to Safety Chapter in the User’s Guide.
Please read and
understand the chapter before using the robot system.
Only trained personnel should design and install the robot system. Trained
personnel are defined as those who have taken robot system training and
maintenance training classes held by the manufacturer, dealer, or local
representative company, or those who understand the manuals thoroughly and
have the same knowledge and skill level as those who have completed the
training courses.
WARNING
TP1
Rev.5
Only authorized personnel who have taken the safety training should be allowed
to execute teaching or calibration of the robot system.
The safety training is the program for industrial robot operator that follows the
laws and regulations of each nation. The personnel who have taken the safety
training acquire knowledge of industrial robots (operations, teaching, etc.).
The personnel who have completed the robot system-training class held by the
manufacturer, dealer, or locally-incorporated company are allowed to maintain
the robot system.

Functions & Installation
1. Safety
Only authorized personnel who have taken the safety training should be allowed
to maintain the robot system.
The safety training is the program for industrial robot operator that follows the
laws and regulations of each nation. The personnel who have taken the safety
training acquire knowledge of industrial robots (operations, teaching, etc.),
knowledge of inspections, and knowledge of related rules/regulations. The
personnel who have completed the robot system-training and
maintenance-training classes held by the manufacturer, dealer, or locally
incorporated company are allowed to maintain the robot system.
WARNING
Immediately press the EMERGENCY STOP switch whenever you suspect any
danger.
The Teach Pendant is equipped with an EMERGENCY STOP switch. Before
operating the Teach Pendant, make sure that the EMERGENCY STOP switch
on the Teach Pendant functions properly. Operating the Teach Pendant when
the switch does not function properly is extremely hazardous and may result in
serious bodily injury and/or serious damage to the equipment, as the switch
cannot fulfill its intended function in an emergency.
When nothing appears on its display window, the Teach Pendant is not
connected with the Controller. In this case, the EMERGENCY STOP switch on
the Teach Pendant will not function.
If the Teach Pendant is not connected to the controller, DO NOT place it within
easy reach during operation. You might press the EMERGENCY STOP switch
on the unconnected Teach Pendant by mistake to stop the robot system in an
emergency. Pressing the EMERGENCY STOP switch on the disconnected
Teach Pendant in an emergency is extremely hazardous and may cause
serious safety problems.
When entering the safeguarded area for teaching, change the mode of the
Teach Pendant to TEACH and take out the key for the mode selector key switch
and then enter the safeguarded area with the key. Leaving the key in the
mode selector key switch is extremely hazardous and may cause serious safety
problems as someone else may inadvertently change the mode to the automatic
operation.
WARNING
4
Be sure to connect the cables between the Controller and the Teach Pendant
properly. Do not allow unnecessary strain on the cables. (Do not put heavy
objects on the cables. Do not bend or pull the cables forcibly.) The
unnecessary strain on the cables may result in damage to the cables,
disconnection, and/or contact failure. Damaged cables, disconnection, or
contact failure is extremely hazardous and may result in electric shock and/or
improper function of the system. Do not use the cables near heat or fire.

Functions & Installation
1. Safety
Do not shock the Teach Pendant physically or place any object on Teach
Pendant. A liquid crystal display is used for the Teach Pendant display.
If
the display is damaged, liquid crystal may leak out. Liquid crystal is harmful.
If it sticks on your skin or clothes, immediately wash your skin and clothes
thoroughly with clean water and soap immediately.
CAUTION
The Teach Pendant must be used within the environmental conditions
described in this manual. This product has been designed and manufactured
strictly for use in a normal indoor environment. Using this product in the
environment that exceeds the conditions may not only shorten the life cycle of
the product but also cause serious safety problems.
Do not disassemble, repair, or modify the Teach Pendant by yourself.
Improper disassembly, repair, or modification of the Teach Pendant may cause
not only improper function of the robot system but also serious safety problems.
Safety-related Requirements
Specific tolerances and operating conditions for safety are contained in the manuals for
the robot, controller and other devices. Be sure to read those manuals as well.
Robot systems safety standard and other examples are given in this chapter. Therefore,
to ensure that safety measures are complete, please refer to the other standards listed as
well.

Operating Precautions
Do not drop the Teach Pendant or hit hard against other objects to avoid
damage, as the case of the Teach Pendant may be damaged since the main
body is made of resin.
Use the hand strap to prevent dropping the Teach Pendant during operation.
Do not hit the touch panel of the Teach Pendant against a hard object or put
excessive pressure on it. The touch panel is made of glass. Therefore, if
excessive pressure is put on it, it may be damaged.
CAUTION
Do not press or rub the surface of the front panel push buttons with a hard
object such as a tool. The surface of the buttons may be damaged as they are
easily scratched.
Wipe the dirt and oils adhering to the surface of the Teach Pendant display with
a soft cloth dampened with a neutral detergent or an alcohol solvent.
If using the mounting bracket, check that the bracket and screws are not bent or
loosened.

Connection
This section indicates the connection of the Controller and the Teach Pendant.
Be sure to connect the cables of Controller and Teach Pendant properly. Do
not allow unnecessary strain on the cables. (Do not put heavy objects on the
cables. Do not bend or pull the cables forcibly.) The unnecessary strain on the
cables may result in damage to the cables, disconnection, and/or contact failure.
Damaged cables, disconnection, or contact failure is extremely hazardous and
may result in improper function of the system.
CAUTION
Make sure that the pins are not bent when connecting the connector.
Connecting the connector with the pin bent may cause malfunction and result in
improper function of the system.
The connector connected to the end of the cable is a general-purpose type
connector. When connecting the connector, note that the waterproof efficiency
and dustproof efficiency of the connector do not comply with IP65.
3.4.1 Typical cable connection
The Teach Pendant and the Operator Panel is connected to TP/OP port of controller.
NOTE
When nothing is connected to the TP/OP port, Emergency Stop status occurs to the
Controller. When the Teach Pendant or the Operator Panel is not connected, connect the
TP/OP bypass plug.
