Precaution
WARNING
Wiring
In the case of the NB Series, when grounding the positive terminal of power supply of 24 V to
the NB, do not ground functional grounding terminal at NB side. Some functions of a PC
connected to the NB may cause a short circuit and the NB Unit may cause damage.
• Caution:
Depending on the types of PC, SG terminals of RS-232C port or USB port and contour of connector can
be connected. As the contour of tool port of the NB and the functional grounding terminal are not insulated, they are connected. Therefore, connecting the PC allows GND terminal and functional grounding
terminal of the NB to be connected. If the power supply of 24V to the NB is grounded positively, grounding the functional grounding terminal allows a short circuit as shown in the diagram below and may result
in damage.

Precautions for Safe Use
• When unpacking the NB Units and the peripheral devices, check carefully for any external scratches
or other damages. Also, shake the Units gently and check for any abnormal sound.
• The NB Unit must be installed in a control panel.
• The mounting panel must be between 1.6 and 4.8 mm thick. Tighten the Mounting Brackets evenly to a
torque of between 0.5 and 0.6 Nxm to maintain water and dust resistance. If the tightening torque
exceeds the specified value, or the tightening is not even, deformation of the front panel may occur.
What is more, make sure the panel is not dirty or warped and that it is strong enough to hold the Units.
• Do not let metal particles enter the Units when preparing the panel.
• Do not connect an AC power supply to the DC power terminals.
• Use a DC power with a slight voltage fluctuation and reinforced or double insulation, and that will
provide a stable output even if the input is momentarily interrupted for 10 ms.
Rated Power Supply Voltage: DC 24 V (Allowable range DC 20.4 ~ 27.6 V)
• Do not perform a dielectric voltage test.
• Before connecting the power supply to the NB unit, mount the cable on the terminal block. Make the
connection by using terminal screws crimping on a twisted-pair cable with a crimping range of 12~26
AWG, and only 6.5 mm of insulation peel of the cable needs to be peeled off. Tighten the terminal
screws at a torque of between 0.3 and 0.5 Nxm. Make sure the screws are properly tightened. Do not
use the terminal block of NB3Q-TW……B for other models. NB3Q-TW……B has different pin
definitions on the terminal block.
• To prevent malfunctions caused by noise, ground the Unit correctly.
• Do not touch the packaging part of the circuit board with your bare hands. Discharge any static
electricity from your body before handling the board.
• When using the No. 6 pin of the serial communication port COM1 connector for a voltage of DC+5V,
make sure the supply equipment’s current capacity is below 250mA before using it. The DC+5V
voltage output of the NB unit is +5V±5%, and the maximum current is 250mA. (The serial
communication port COM1 of NB3Q-TW……B is unable to output the current.)
• Turn OFF the power supply before connecting or disconnecting cables.
• Always keep the connector screws firmly tightened after the communication cable is connected.
• The maximum tensile load for cables is 30 N. Do not apply loads greater than this.
• Confirm the safety of the system before turning ON or OFF the power supply, or pressing the reset button.
• The whole system may stop depending on how the power supply is turned ON or OFF. Turn ON/OFF
the power supply according to the specified procedure.
• Reset by pressing the reset button, or restart the power supply, once the DIP switch settings are changed.
• To ensure the system’s safety, make sure to incorporate a program that can confirm the normal
functionality of the NB Unit before running the system.
• Start actual system application only after sufficiently checking screen data, macros and the operation
of the program at the host side.
• Do not press the touch panel with a force greater than 30 N.
• Do not use hard or pointed objects to operate or scrub the screen, otherwise, the surface of the
screen may be damaged.
• Confirm the safety of the system before pressing the touch panel.
• Signals from the touch switches may not be input if the touch switches are pressed consecutively at
high speed. Confirm each input before proceeding to the next one.
• Do not accidentally press the touch panel when the backlight is not lit or when the display does not
appear. Make sure of the safety of the system before pressing the touch panel.
• To use numeric input functions safely, always make maximum and minimum limit settings.
• Before initializing screen data, confirm that existing data is backed up at the NB-Designer.
14
NB-series Programmable Terminals Startup Guide Manual(V109)
• When changing the password with the screen, do not reset or turn OFF the power supply until writing
is finished. Failure to save the password may cause the screen to fail to function.
• When using an equipment monitor, confirm the safety of the system before carrying out the following operations:
• Changing monitor data.
• Changing operation mode.
• Forced set/reset.
• Changing the current value or the set value.
• Do not connect a USB connector to any device that is not applicable.
• When connecting the equipment with the USB HOST connector, make sure the supply equipment’s
current capacity is below 150mA before using it. The DC+5V voltage output of the NB Unit is
+5V±5%, and the maximum current is 150mA.
• Before connecting a USB connector to a device, make sure that the device is free of damage.
• Commercially available and the recommended USB HUBs are different from the general
specifications of the NB Unit. The unit may not function well in an environment subject to noise, static
electricity. Therefore, when using a USB HUB, employ sufficient noise and static electricity insulation
measures, or install it at a site free of noise or static electricity.
• While uploading or downloading screen data or system programs, do not perform the following
operations that may corrupt the screen data or the system program:
• Turning OFF the power supply of the NB Unit.
• Pressing the PT’s reset switch.
• Dispose of the Units and batteries according to local ordinances as they apply.
• Do not dispose the product into a fire. Doing so may cause the damage with the battery or electronic components.

machines into which they are built can more easily conform to EMC Directives. The actual products
have been through inspections and are completely in accordance with EMC directives. However, when
they are built into customers’ systems, whether the systems also comply with these Directives is up to
the customers for further inspection.
EMC-related performance of OMRON PTs will vary depending on the configuration, wiring, and other
conditions of the OMRON equipment or control panel. The customer must, therefore, perform final
checks to confirm that the overall machine or device conforms to EMC standards.
Note The applicable EMC (Electromagnetic Compatibility) standards are as follows:
EMS (Electromagnetic sensitivity): EN61131-2: 2007
EMI (Electromagnetic Interference): EN61131-2: 2007
Conformance to EC Directives
NB-Series Programmable Terminals are EC compliant. Heed the following precautions in order to
ensure that the customer’s overall machine and device conform to EC Directives.
1
2
3
4
The PT must be installed in a control panel.
You must use reinforced insulation or double insulation for the DC power supply and the DC
power supply must have minimal voltage fluctuations and provide a stable output even if the
power supply input is interrupted for 10 ms.
The PTs conform to the standard EN 61131-2, but radiated emission characteristics (10m
regulations) may vary depending on the configuration of the control panel used, other devices
connected to the control panel, wiring, and other conditions. You must therefore confirm that the
overall machine or equipment complies with EC Directives.
This is a Class A product (Product for industry purpose). It may cause radio interference in
residential areas, in which case the user may be required to take adequate measures to reduce
interference.
Conformance to KC Standards
Observe the following precaution if you use NB-series Programmable Terminals in Korea.
Class A Device (Broadcasting Communications Device for Office Use)
This device obtained EMC registration for office use (Class A), and it is intended to be used in
places other than homes.
Sellers and/or users need to take note of this.

PLC Control Setting
In this project, the screen is controlled by PLC, to realize this function, the PLC Control component
should be used.
Using of PLC Control component allows to change screen from the PLC or to write a number of Current
Base Screen to the PLC . When Switch Screens is used, the default Word Length of the specified
memory is set to 2. When a value which is corresponds to the number of the Current Base Screen is
set, the screen is automatically changed to a screen which corresponds to the number. In this example,
the value D 0 is used as the corresponding screen number and the number of the Current Base Screen
indicated at D 11 is output.

z Test function
The display effect of the created screen can be checked by the NB-Designer itself through the offline
test without need to connect it to the PLC. Select [Tools] - [Compile] from the main menu. After the
successful compilation, select [Tools] - [Offline Test] and then right-click the mouse to select “close”
to exit from the test. Please note that it needs to be recompiled and then tested each time when the
setting or project is changed.
The offline test is convenient for users to preview the screen effect visually without need to download
programs to the PT, thus enhancing the efficient programming substantially, but the offline test can
only show the display effect of the project screen. Because this project involves the data sampling
and input/output control of PLC, the actual operating effect can be seen only after the edited project
being downloaded into PT for operation and the communication with PLC being established. If the
user just wants to see the created screen effect, it needs to place one Number Input component in
the Common Screen with the address of LW0 (for example), and then add the same address into the
PLC Control component with the Control Type of “Switch Screens” in the PLC Control dialog box. In
this case, each created screen can be seen after the number of 10 to 17 input into the Number Input
component during the offline test. Later, it just needs to delete the Number Input component and the
added control conditions after the correct confirmation.
Refer to the NB Series NB-Designer Operation Manual (V106) for the details of the test.

What if the uploading password or the online change password of the PT is lost
If the uploading password of PT is lost, data cannot be uploaded, and the only solution is to
download the project again to overwrite the original one.
Similarly, if the online change password is lost, it also requires to download the project again
and set a new password.
Thus, in order to guarantee the safety of users’ projects, please back up the original projects,
for decryption is not within our service range.
Why cannot the system time be changed during offline test
Offline test uses the PC’s clock, therefore the time cannot be changed. It can only be changed
when downloaded to the PT.
How to use the Confirm Operation function
When the user is fabricating a screen, some buttons may require a second confirmation to
validate the operation, and at this time, the Confirm Operation function can fit well here. This
function can control components. For example, you can check the [Confirm Operation] on the
[Control Setting] attributes page of the bit status setting component, as shown below:

The difference between User permissions and User levels
User levels: There is a difference between high-level users and low-level users: the high-level
users can access to the screens which are set to the high-level, while the low-level users
cannot access to the screens which are set to the high-level. Each screen is encrypted based
on the user level.
User permissions: The permissions are not restricted for each user level. If user name and
password are entered correctly, the user can operate components which are restricted its
access. The user permissions allow the user to add or delete user accounts. The user
permissions can be set to the components, however, they are invalid to a password which is set
to the screen.

How to set the addresses of the component for displaying Alarm and Event, and how to inquire
Alarm and Event
It’s best to use the internal register of the PT - LW for the address type of the component for
displaying Alarm and Event, and the address can be designated as any of the vacant address
in the project. When we record Alarm and Event on PT, one page is almost certainly not
enough, then turn-page inquiring is needed to be set, thus the address in the properties of the
component for displaying Alarm and Event takes effect. Take LW10 for an example, as follows:

Why is there one event inquiring record less
When the customer set the Page Up/Down Switching for [Command Button component], the
lower limit is set to 1, which will cause the records to be one less. The correct setting is as
follows:
6-3 Troubleshooting
Note Incremental upper limit is set as the number of events which you need to record, while the decremental lower limit is recommended to be set to 0.
6 Maintenance and Troubleshooting
10 How to keep the time in the event record and in the PLC synchronized
Check [Use External Clock] in [PT Property] __ [PT Extended Property], as follows:
Meanwhile, clock register data inside the PLC is also needed to be transmitted to the local
register LW9010-9017. Refer to the NB Series NB-Designer Operation Manual(V106) for the
details.
11 Why cannot the history events be saved even if “saving” is selected
In most of this kind of cases, although the customer selects to save them, the No. of events to
be saved which is 0 by default is not changed to the No. the customer needs, thus the problem
occurs. In this case, just set the No. of events to be saved to make it work. This is done in [PT
Property] --- [Event History Setting], as follows:
6-10
NB-series Programmable Terminals Startup Guide Manual(V109)
6 Maintenance and Troubleshooting
12 The cause of PT prompting “RTC Device error” and the solution
When PT prompt “RTC Device error”, it’s probably because the clock chip fails.
If the recipe component or the system time is not used, this notice can be shielded without
affecting other operations. The method to shield it is: place a [Bit Button Component] in the
project’s common sheet, with the address set to LW.B 9298.0 and the set type to [Set On when
Screen Open] status.
13 What if there is one digit less when displaying negative numbers, or it displays “****”
When the data type in the software is decimal, the minus sign also occupies a bit, therefore one
more integer bit is needed.
14 When switching the screens with PLC control, why cannot the screen being set up be accessed
15 When calling a screen with a direct screen, why does not the target screen show up completely
When calling a target screen with a direct screen, the left top corner is taken as the base point.
If the size of the direct screen component is smaller than then target screen, the display may be
incomplete. Therefore, when editing the target screen, place the component with the left top
corner as the base point and make sure that the size of the target screen is the same as that of
the direct screen component.
offline test still works as normal
It may be caused by communication disruption between the PT and the slave. If the
communication fails and the component on the screen takes the slave’s address, components
like the indicator and buttons will not show up properly. Restoring the communication will solve
this problem. With respect to how to restore the disrupted communication, refer to
communication-related issues in this manual.
17 Can the PT be restarted without interrupting the power supply
There are two ways to restart it without interrupting the power supply:
Method 1: Press the RESET button on the back of the panel to restart it.
Method 2: Make a [Bit Switch] component, with the address as LB9045. When LB9045=1, the
PT will restart.

repeatedly
It's likely because the value of the PLC address through which screen switching is set does not
change. The screen should be switched with the PLC control, but if switching the screen with
the procedure such as screen switching (not by the PLC control), as the value of the PLC
address does not change, the screen cannot be accessed repeatedly with PLC control.
Solution: add a [Command Button component] to the screen of leaving designated screen, with
the address set to the same as the one in [PLC Control Switch Screens], and the property to
[Set at Screen Close] (This value can be set as a negative).

box is checked for the project.
(b) Confirm the [Enable Printer Function] option in System Setting Mode in the NB Unit is
checked.
(c) The user must use the NB-Designer of version 1.22 or later to update the kernel and
Rootfs of NB Unit when using the Pictbridge printing function for the first time.
(d) Check the USB cable between the printer and PT is properly connected.
(e) Restart the PT (Disconnect the USB cable Æ Restart Æ Connect the USB cable).
(f)
If the procedure (e) doesn’t work, please restart the printer.
(g) Check if LB9017 is set to ON. LB9017 is with shielding all printing requests as its
functionality, i.e. when this bit is ON, the printing request will be ignored without calling
out the Pictbridge, while printing will restore when this bit is OFF.
(h) If the printing still doesn’t work after all the above operations have been performed,
please contact the supplier printed on the back cover.
Communication-related Troubles
1
What if the communication between the PLC and PT fails
Many customers experienced communication problems between the PT and PLC when they
used PT. As this happens, follow the procedures below to check what is going wrong.
(a) Check whether the hardware connections are correct or not, especially whether the
fabrication of the communication cable correct or not;
(c) Is the communication serial port selected correctly, for example, if COM1 is selected in
software configuration, but COM2 is used actually, this would be considered wrong;
(d) Use the serial programming cable of the PLC to download PLC programs, and make
sure the downloading go smoothly. Exit the downloading mode and use the [Direct
Online Test] function of the NB-Designer by clicking [Tools] Æ [Direct Online Test]. If
the [Direct Online Test] communication fails, it is likely because the communication
parameters of the PT and PLC are inconsistent. In this case, check the communication
parameter settings of the PLC and PT;
(e) If the [Direct Online Test] functions well, please confirm the connection of the
communication cable (If it’s the user who make the cable, please check whether the
male and female pins are deployed in right correspondence, and whether there is false
soldering.);
(f)
When the connection is realized by the Ethernet method, please check whether the IP
address of PT and that of PLC are correct.
(g) When the connection is realized by the Ethernet method, please confirm whether PLC
supports MODBUS TCP protocol or UDP protocol.
(h) If all turn right following the above procedures, but communications still will not work,
please contact the supplier.

Why is the communication between the HMI and slave Unit slow and how to improve it
The possible causes of a slow communication:
(a) There are too many components on a single screen communicating with the slave Unit,
and besides, the addresses are discontinuous;
(b) The macro uses too many sentences which call addresses of the slave Units directly. It
is recommended not to call addresses of the slave units directly in a macro program;
(c) In the screens such as Common Sheet too many timers are deployed;
(d) Too many background components such as Data Log, XY Graph and Data History are
employed, and the background components are running all the time;
(e) Alarm and Event Registration addresses are too many and discontinuous;
(f)
Too many PLC control components are used;
(g) On-site Interference;
(h) Too many vector font formats are used. Try not to use too many vector font formats in a
project to the utmost;
(i)
Too many bitmaps are used;
(j)
Too many screens pop up, such as direct screens and indirect screens;
(k) There are too many controllers communicating with the PT and too many
communication addresses.
Solutions:
(a) Components on a single screen communicating with the slave Unit should be as few as
possible;
(b) Try to keep the addresses of the components on a single screen communicating with
the slave Unit continuous;
(c) Try to use PT's internal addresses as variables for macro. If there is a need for
exchanging data between the touch panel and slave Unit communication components,
resort to the data transmission function of the timer or data transmission components;
(d) Keep a minimum of number of channels of background components such as Data Log,
XY Graph and Data History components, etc. and make sampling periods as long as
possible;
(e) Try to keep Alarm and Event Registration addresses continuous;
(f)
Do not use too many PLC control components;
(g) Use a shielded cable for the communication cable. Keep it at least 10 CM away from
power lines, and make sure the system is grounded properly;
(h) Try to use less vector fonts and use bitmaps instead when creating screens. Even if
you need to use vector fonts, use the vector fonts at minimum.

PLC No Response: what is the meaning of XX-XX-X
XX-XX-X means: PT number - PLC station number - PT serial port number. For example, 0001-01 means the No.0 PT using the serial port COM1 loses communication connection to the
controller with the station number 1.
The serial port number is defined as: 01/02 represent COM1/COM2.
The causes for a project downloading failure
Downloading through USB fails:
Check whether hardware connections are still functioning well or not, then check through the
following factors
(a) USB driver is not installed successfully.
(b) USB driver has been corrupted. Find the driver at NB-Designer/driver and reinstall it;
(c) The USB cable has been damaged, so replace it;
(d) The USB port of the PT or the PC fails;

USB is assigned to the printing function together with “Enable Printer Function” being
checked in the System Setting Mode. Please uncheck the “Enable Printer Function”
option and restart the NB. (For details, refer to Section 7 Pictbridge Printing in NBDesigner Operation Manual.)
Downloading in the serial mode fails:
(a) [Tools] menu Æ [Transmission Setting] Æ [COM] is selected.
(b) Whether Port No. of the PC is correct;
(c) The serial port is occupied or problems arise to the PC serial port;
(d) The fabrication of the communication cable is incorrect or the bonding wire falls off;
(e) The communications cable is plugged incorrectly, and it should be plugged to the
COM1 port;
(f)
The serial port of the PT fails (The serial port does not support hot plug, so take care
and avoid man-made damage).
Downloading in the Ethernet mode fails:
(b) [Tools] menu -> [Transmission Setting] -> Whether the IP address and port number are
same as that in PT settings. In PT System Setting Mode, the network settings for PT
Unit can be viewed. (For the operation method, please refer to the NB Series Setup

How to decide whether communications are normal or not through the internal addresses of the PT
Decide Deciding which PLC is disconnected with through a bit;
Serial port 2: LW9432-9447, 16 words are equivalent to 256 bits, with each bit corresponding to
a PLC. No response = ON, Normal = OFF.
See the following diagram:
Assume that 3 S7-200 PLCs connect to the COM2 port of NB7W, the station numbers of which
are 2, 3, 4 respectively; if the PLCs with the station numbers 2 and 4 fail communication, the
internal registers LW.B9432.2 and LW.B9432.4 will turn ON automatically, as shown below:

6-28
The communications of the PT and PLC are normal, but why are some numeric values are
indicated as “****”
When the data coming from registers communicating with the PLC exceeds the setting range of
the Number Display or Number Input, “****” will appear. It indicates an overflow of a numeric
value. The user can set the integer bit digit number range of the Number Display or Number
Input larger through NB-Designer to make numeric value display normal. For example, change
the integer bit digit number from 3 to 4.

Why is the speed of PT operation becoming slow after macro is executed
(a) When writing code of macro, if a large of number of address variables of the PLC or
slave Unit are defined, the execution speed of the PT may suffer. When executing a
macro program, the processor picks up the variable addresses defined first, executes
the macro, then carries out output. If the macro is executed at a high frequency, a large
amount of time is used to perform communication with the slave Unit, thus affecting the
execution speed of the PT as a whole.
(b) It is because the variable in macro code has used the PLC address. The user can
realize the communication and make the macro executed normally by setting the
special register LW9535 (time magnification during the communication by PLC
variables for macro with its default of 0) to extend the wait time. If the macro cannot
executed normally, it is recommended the user to set LW9535 to “2 or above”.

Hardware Troubles
How to calibrate the system time of the PT
There are 2 methods to calibrate the time:
Method 1: there are 2 DIP switches on the backside of the PT. Tweak both of the DIP switches 1
and 2 to ON, reboot the PT, then the Setup Screen turns up, as shown below: (take NB5QTW00B as an example)
6-3 Troubleshooting

6-3-3 Hardware Troubles
Click the time component, input the current time.
Method 2: Create a new project, and place 7 Number Input components on the screen, with
each of the addresses LW10000~LW10006 respectively corresponding to the Second, Minute,
Hour, Day, Month, Year and Week The time can thus be calibrated through changing the values
of these 6 Number Input components.
2
The time cannot be saved or the display is not accurate
If the time cannot be saved, the most likely cause is that the battery runs low. When the PT is
disconnected from the power supply, the RTC needs to be energized by the battery on the PT
mainboard. When the battery voltage descends to an unsustainably low level, it may cause that
the time cannot be saved or the display is not accurate, therefore requiring the Unit to be sent
back to replace.

Why is there no response from touch-control
When operating the touch panel, if clicking a component on the screen does not receive a
proper response, the first thing you have to do is to make sure that this button is indeed
operable. If it is confirmed, the problem may result from a touch-control shift. The touch panel is
a panel of 4-wire precision resistors, and because the resistors are subject to impacts from
temperature, humidity and also their own characteristics, it’s recommended that touch-control
calibration be carried out yearly.
Calibration method: tweak the DIP switches on the backside of the PT, SW1 to OFF, SW2 to
ON, and restart the PT. A “+” will appear on the screen. Click it, the “+” will shift after the PT
responds. You have to click again and after a total of 5 consecutive clicks, the PT will prompt
you whether the calibration is a success. If it is a success, the PT will skip to the user program
screen, while if it is not a success, the “+” will pop up again, requiring another round of
calibration.
Note After a successful calibration, the DIP switch 2 needs to be set back to OFF, or not, the system will
prompt you for a calibration every time you turn on the power supply.
4
Why is the PT touch-control not responding or being slow to respond
The likely causes are as follows:
(a) The communications are abnormal, and when this happens, the touch-control may not
respond;
(b) The touch-control shifts, and change of the operation environment or the touch panel
characteristics may cause the touch-control to be unable to respond;
(c) The touch panel may be damaged or the touch-control circuit may be suffered of a poor
contact;
Solutions:
(a) Resolve the communication problem;
(b) Try out a touch-control calibration;
(c) Please contact the supplier printed on the back cover.
5
Why does the PT screen dim or without backlight
The screens we normally see on a PT are displayed in liquid crystal. However, the liquid crystal
itself does not give out light, so it is usually used together with a light source, and so far, the
most commonly used light-emitting equipments for industrial PT products are of CCFL or LED
backlight. The NB-Series touch panel employs LED backlight.
LED backlight: LED, (i.e. Lighting Emitting Diode), is a kind of semiconductor solid light-emitting
device. It uses solid semiconductor chips as the light-emitting material. Surplus energy breaks
out during the process of combination of charge carriers in the semiconductor, triggering
photon emissions, and this is used to display various kinds of information, such as characters,
graphics, images, animations, texts, videos and video signals on display panels. The generally
used LED backlight is made up of an array, e.g. an array of 3×4 with a total of 12 LEDs, and if
one or even more LEDs are not working normally, the screen will dim. When none of the LEDs
is working normally, the screen will have no backlight.
The possible causes for a black screen are as follows:
(a) The power supply to the PT is abnormal;
(b) The PT enters the screen saver (backlight saver) mode;
(c) Control backlight OFF is set through the PLC Control Component;
(d) Backlight broken or the LCD panel is damaged.
Solutions:
(a) Check the power supply to the PT, use a multimeter to measure whether the voltage is
within the normal range or whether the output power is too low;
(b) Click the PT screen to exit the screen saver mode;
(c) Check whether control backlight OFF is set through the PLC Control Component in the
PT program;
(d) Please contact the supplier printed on the back cover.

What influences do on-site interferences have on the PT, and what are the countermeasures
On an industrial site, various kinds of interferences will be encountered inevitably. Interferences
may cause the following troubles for the touch panel.
(a) A small information window displaying “PLC NO RESPONSE” appears intermittently;
(b) Communications with the PT breaks off, whenever an inverter, motor, transformer or
some other equipment alike starts;
(c) The PT crashes;
(d) The touch-control of the PT becomes slow to respond.
The interference issue is a rather complicated one, and the commonly used methods for
handling this issue include:
(a) Anti-strong-electricity-interference - Keep weak electricity cables such as
communication cables, signal cables and control cables away from strong electricity,
and do not lay them parallel with strong electricity cables. If possible, wire them through
iron tubes, and if the cable duct is multilayered, lay the weak electricity cables below
the strong electricity ones.
(b) Anti-inner-cabinet-interference - It’s recommended that the alternating current cables
and the direct current cables be laid in separate channels, and if laid in the same
channel, the weak electricity cables and the strong electricity ones need to be bundled
separately, and be kept as far away as possible.
(c) Anti-inverter-interference - Connect a filter to the power-supply side of the inverter, and
shroud it with a metal casing.
(d) Every equipment needs to be grounded properly.
(e) Use a separate switching power supply for the PT.

amounts, including amounts payable hereunder, whether or not then due,
which are owing to it by Buyer. Buyer shall in any event remain liable for all

requirements of any government authority.
11. Shipping; Delivery. Unless otherwise expressly agreed in writing by Omron:
a. Shipments shall be by a carrier selected by Omron; Omron will not drop ship
except in “break down” situations.
b. Such carrier shall act as the agent of Buyer and delivery to such carrier shall
constitute delivery to Buyer;

Product, or (iii) repay or credit Buyer an amount equal to the purchase price of
the non-complying Product; provided that in no event shall Omron be responsible for warranty, repair, indemnity or any other claims or expenses regarding
the Products unless Omron’s analysis confirms that the Products were properly handled, stored, installed and maintained and not subject to contamination, abuse, misuse or inappropriate modification. Return of any Products by
Buyer must be approved in writing by Omron before shipment. Omron Companies shall not be liable for the suitability or unsuitability or the results from the
use of Products in combination with any electrical or electronic components,
circuits, system assemblies or any other materials or substances or environments. Any advice, recommendations or information given orally or in writing,
are not to be construed as an amendment or addition to the above warranty.
See http://www.omron247.com or contact your Omron representative for published information.
Limitation on Liability; Etc. OMRON COMPANIES SHALL NOT BE LIABLE
FOR SPECIAL, INDIRECT, INCIDENTAL, OR CONSEQUENTIAL DAMAGES,
LOSS OF PROFITS OR PRODUCTION OR COMMERCIAL LOSS IN ANY
WAY CONNECTED WITH THE PRODUCTS, WHETHER SUCH CLAIM IS
BASED IN CONTRACT, WARRANTY, NEGLIGENCE OR STRICT LIABILITY.
Further, in no event shall liability of Omron Companies exceed the individual
price of the Product on which liability is asserted.
Indemnities. Buyer shall indemnify and hold harmless Omron Companies and
their employees from and against all liabilities, losses, claims, costs and
expenses (including attorney's fees and expenses) related to any claim, investigation, litigation or proceeding (whether or not Omron is a party) which arises
or is alleged to arise from Buyer's acts or omissions under these Terms or in
any way with respect to the Products. Without limiting the foregoing, Buyer (at
its own expense) shall indemnify and hold harmless Omron and defend or settle any action brought against such Companies to the extent based on a claim
that any Product made to Buyer specifications infringed intellectual property
rights of another party.
Property; Confidentiality. Any intellectual property in the Products is the exclusive property of Omron Companies and Buyer shall not attempt to duplicate it
in any way without the written permission of Omron. Notwithstanding any
charges to Buyer for engineering or tooling, all engineering and tooling shall
remain the exclusive property of Omron. All information and materials supplied
by Omron to Buyer relating to the Products are confidential and proprietary,
and Buyer shall limit distribution thereof to its trusted employees and strictly
prevent disclosure to any third party.
Export Controls. Buyer shall comply with all applicable laws, regulations and
licenses regarding (i) export of products or information; (iii) sale of products to
“forbidden” or other proscribed persons; and (ii) disclosure to non-citizens of
regulated technology or information.
Miscellaneous. (a) Waiver. No failure or delay by Omron in exercising any right
and no course of dealing between Buyer and Omron shall operate as a waiver
of rights by Omron. (b) Assignment. Buyer may not assign its rights hereunder
without Omron's written consent. (c) Law. These Terms are governed by the
law of the jurisdiction of the home office of the Omron company from which
Buyer is purchasing the Products (without regard to conflict of law principles). (d) Amendment. These Terms constitute the entire agreement between
Buyer and Omron relating to the Products, and no provision may be changed
or waived unless in writing signed by the parties. (e) Severability. If any provision hereof is rendered ineffective or invalid, such provision shall not invalidate
any other provision. (f) Setoff. Buyer shall have no right to set off any amounts
against the amount owing in respect of this invoice. (g) Definitions. As used
herein, “including” means “including without limitation”; and “Omron Companies” (or similar words) mean Omron Corporation and any direct or indirect
subsidiary or affiliate thereof.
Certain Precautions on Specifications and Use
1. Suitability of Use. Omron Companies shall not be responsible for conformity
with any standards, codes or regulations which apply to the combination of the
Product in the Buyer’s application or use of the Product. At Buyer’s request,
Omron will provide applicable third party certification documents identifying
ratings and limitations of use which apply to the Product. This information by
itself is not sufficient for a complete determination of the suitability of the Product in combination with the end product, machine, system, or other application
or use. Buyer shall be solely responsible for determining appropriateness of
the particular Product with respect to Buyer’s application, product or system.
Buyer shall take application responsibility in all cases but the following is a
non-exhaustive list of applications for which particular attention must be given:
(i) Outdoor use, uses involving potential chemical contamination or electrical
interference, or conditions or uses not described in this document.
(ii) Use in consumer products or any use in significant quantities.
(iii) Energy control systems, combustion systems, railroad systems, aviation
systems, medical equipment, amusement machines, vehicles, safety equipment, and installations subject to separate industry or government regulations.
(iv) Systems, machines and equipment that could present a risk to life or property. Please know and observe all prohibitions of use applicable to this Product.
NEVER USE THE PRODUCT FOR AN APPLICATION INVOLVING SERIOUS
RISK TO LIFE OR PROPERTY OR IN LARGE QUANTITIES WITHOUT
ENSURING THAT THE SYSTEM AS A WHOLE HAS BEEN DESIGNED TO

OVERALL EQUIPMENT OR SYSTEM.
Programmable Products. Omron Companies shall not be responsible for the
user’s programming of a programmable Product, or any consequence thereof.
Performance Data. Data presented in Omron Company websites, catalogs
and other materials is provided as a guide for the user in determining suitability and does not constitute a warranty. It may represent the result of Omron’s
test conditions, and the user must correlate it to actual application requirements. Actual performance is subject to the Omron’s Warranty and Limitations
of Liability.
Change in Specifications. Product specifications and accessories may be
changed at any time based on improvements and other reasons. It is our practice to change part numbers when published ratings or features are changed,
or when significant construction changes are made. However, some specifications of the Product may be changed without any notice. When in doubt, special part numbers may be assigned to fix or establish key specifications for
your application. Please consult with your Omron’s representative at any time
to confirm actual specifications of purchased Product.
Errors and Omissions. Information presented by Omron Companies has been
checked and is believed to be accurate; however, no responsibility is assumed
for clerical, typographical or proofreading errors or omissions.
