Chapter 2 Installation Instructions
2.1 Mounting Instructions
2.1.1 Location Considerations
Care should be taken when locating equipment behind the unit to ensure that AC power wiring,
PLC output modules, contactors, starters and relays, and any other source of electrical
interference are located away from the back of the unit.
Particular note should be taken to the position of variable speed drives and switching power
supplies. Their input and load cables should be screened to a central star earth point.
2.1.2 Making a NEMA-4 Mounting
Panel Details
The unit can be mounted into panels with a depth of 4”(105mm). It
is recommended that the unit be mounted on the front panel of a steel
enclosur e, through an appropriate opening*. Allow a clearance of
1”(25mm) around the sides of the unit for mounting hardware.
Allow clearance for cable connections to the back of the unit. Unit
depth may vary according to cable type used. Typically, plan a depth
to accommodate at least 4”(105mm) behind the panel.
NEMA -4
Mounting
Put the unit through the panel cut out. Slide the clamps into the 6
holes provided around the case. Tighten the clamping screws in an
Caution!
even pattern until the unit is secured in the panel.
Do not over tighten mounting clamps!
Note:
Specifications Note:
To seal to NEMA-4 specifications, all supplied mounting clamps
must be used and panel cannot flex more than 0.010”.

2.1.3 Environmental Considerations
l
The NP-700i are to be used indoors as built in displays. Make sure that the displays are
l
installed correctly and that the operating limits are followed (See Specifications).
Do not operate the unit in areas subject to explosion hazards due to flammable gases,
l
vapors or dusts.
The unit should not be installed where fast temperature variations and/or high humidity
l
are present. This will cause condensation of water in the device.
Do not install these terminals in environments where have inflammable gases.
2.2 Power Connections
Make sure that all local and national electrical standards are met when the installing the unit.
Contact your local authorities to determine which codes apply.
10
2.2.1 Power Requirements
Power
The NP-700i can be powered by DC power only. The specified
voltage range is 24 VDC, ± 10%, VDC 250mA@24VDC. This
insures compatibility with most controller DC systems. The power
conditioning circuitry inside the unit is accomplished by a switching
power supply.
Fusing
Requirements
If the display does not come on within 2 seconds of power up,
remove power. An internal fuse will prevent damage if the polarity
of the DC power is incorrect. Check wiring to insure proper
connections and try to power up again.
Caution
An Internal fuse will prevent damage for over voltage condition
however it isn’t guaranteed.
High Voltage
DC voltage sources should provide proper isolation from main AC
power and similar hazards.
Caution
Emergency
Stop
A Hard-wired EMERGENCY STOP should be fitted in any sys tem
using an NP-700i to comply with ICS Safety Recommendations.
Do not power the NP-700i and inductive DC loads, or input circuitry
Caution
to the controller, with the same power supply. Note: The 24 VDC
Supply Voltage
output from some controllers may not have enough current to power
Condition
the NP-700i.
Caution
Wire Routing
Wire lengths should be minimized (Maximum 1600’ (500 m)
shielded, 1000’ (300 m) unshielded).
Wires should be run in pairs with a neutral or common paired with a
hot or signal line.
If wiring is to be exposed to lightning or surges, use appropriate
surge suppression devices.
Keep AC, high energy, and rapidly switching DC wiring separate
from signal wires.
Equip ungrounded DC supplies with a resistor and capacitor in
parallel to earth ground. This provides a path for static and high
frequency dissipation. Typical values to use are 1MOhm and
4700pF.
Connection
To make a connection, strip about 3/8” of insulation off the end of
the wire, turn the connector screw counterclockwise until the gap is
wide open, insert the wire all the way in, and turn the screw
clockwise until it’s tight.
Connect positive DC line to the ‘+24V’ terminal and the DC ground
to the ‘GND‘ terminal.
11
FUSE Replacement:
The fuse use on NP-700i is:
BUSSMANN
Fast Acting, Glass Tube
Rating: 250VAC, 1A
Size: 5x20mm
Warning:
1. Make sure the power off before replace the fuse.
2. Do not replace the fuse with a different rating fuse.
2.2.2 Grounding Requirements
Chassis ground must be used. DC ground is not directly coupled to Earth ground
internally. It is preferable not to ground DC negative return to chassis ground as poor site
earths can introduce noise into a system, but if necessary an earth connection should be made,
from the power supply return point to the central sta r earth point. Ground conductors should be
as short and as large in size as possible. The conductors must always be large enough to carry
the maximum short circuit current of the path being considered. Ground conductors should be
connected to a tree from a central star earth ground point. This ensures that no ground
conductor carries current from any other branch.
2.2.3 CE Requirements
To make an NP-700i comply with EMC directives, and to reduce susceptibility to electrical
interference, a separate #14 A WG ground wire should be taken to the chassis ground terminal
of the power connector. This ground connection should be run directly to the central star earth
connection point (as recommended in most Installation Instructions).
2.2.4 Safety Guidelines
This section presents recommended installation practices, and procedures. Since no two
applications are identical, these recommendations should be considered as guidelines.
Hardware Considerations WARNING!
The system designer should be aware that devices in C ontroller systems could fail and thereby
12
create an unsafe condition. Furthermore, electrical interference in an operator interface, such
as an NP-700i, can lead to equipment start-up, which could result in property damage and/or
physical injury to the equipment operator.
If you, or your company, use any programmable control systems that require an operator or
attendant, you should be aware that this potential safety hazard exists and take appropriate
precautions. Although the specific design steps depend on your particular application, the
following precautions generally apply to installation of solid-state programmable control
devices. In addition, these precautions conform to the guidelines for installation of Controllers
as recommended in the NEMA ICS 3-304 Control Standards.
Programming Considerations
To conform with ICS Safety Recommendations, checks should be placed in the controller to
ensure that all writable registers that control critical parts of plant or machinery have limit
checks built into the program, with an out-of-limit safe shut down procedure to ensure safety
of personnel.
ICS 3-304.81 Safety Recommendations:
Consideration should be given to the use of an emergency stop function, which is
independent of the programmable controller.
Where the operator is exposed to the machinery, such as in loading or unloading a machine
tool, or where the machine cycles automatically, consideration should be given to the use of an
electromechanical override or other redundant means, independent of the programmable
controller, for starting and interrupting the cycle.
If provision is required for changing programs while the equipment is in operation,
consideration should be given to the use of locks or other means of assuring that only
authorized personnel can make such changes.
These recommendations are intended as safeguards against the failure of critical
components and the effects of such failures or the inadvertent errors that might be introduced
if programs are changed while the equipment is in operation. *

Different cables are required for various devices.
Requirements
Caution
Restrict cable length to less than 500’ (150m) for
RS485/422 devices and 50’ (15m) for RS232 devices to
avoid communications problems.
Shielded cable must be used for long lengths or cables run
in an electrically noisy environment.
Do not run cables next to AC power lines or near sources
of electrical noise.
Be sure that the cable ends have been inserted all of the
way into mating connectors and are secure

3.2.3 ResidentFlash
The ResidentFlash serves as a small capacity hard disk. You can store
your data and application in the internal Flash ROM via ResidentFlash function to
prevent unexpected loss of data as power failure. When power is shutdown and cold
boot, the data in the Flash ROM area would be saved. ResidentFlash provides a storage
capacity for 100MB.
3.2.4 Startup
After the system boot up, the startup execution function would automatically perform.
This function is useful for control system to do the initialization processes or some
other programs.
Step1: Create "startup" directory in
"\ResidentFlash\".
Step2: Copy executable files or Shortcut to "Startup" directory which is created in
Step 1.
An alternative way to setup startup files is to make a shortcut and copy it to
"ResidentFlash\StartUp". A shortcut can execute a program with Parameters.
Follow the following procedure to create the shortcut (.lnk) file. A .lnk file is a text file
that contains the command line for the linked target, which may be enclosed in double
quotation marks, along with the length of that command line. Optionally, you can also
pass parameters into the linked target.
For example, to start MyApp.exe and pass two optional parameters into the application,
a sample MyApp.lnk file contains the following.
