SAFETY PRECAUTIONS
(Read these precautions before using.)
When using Mitsubishi equipment, thoroughly read this manual and the associated manuals introduced in
this manual. Also pay careful attention to safety and handle the module properly.
These SAFETY PRECAUTIONS classify the safety precautions into two categories: "DANGER" and
"CAUTION".
DANGER
Indicates that incorrect handling may cause hazardous conditions,
resulting in death or severe injury.
! CAUTION
Indicates that incorrect handling may cause hazardous conditions,
resulting in medium or slight personal injury or physical damage.
!
Depending on circumstances, procedures indicated by ! CAUTION may also be linked to serious results.
In any case, it is important to follow the directions for usage.
Store this manual in a safe place so that you can take it out and read it whenever necessary. Always
forward it to the end user.
[DESIGN PRECAUTIONS]
!
DANGER
Install a safety circuit external to the PLC that keeps the entire system safe even when there
are problems with the external power supply or the PLC module. Otherwise, trouble could result
from erroneous output or erroneous operation.
(1) Outside the PLC, construct mechanical damage preventing interlock circuits such as
emergency stop, protective circuits, positioning upper and lower limits switches and
interlocking forward/reverse operations.
(2) When the PLC detects the following problems, it will stop calculation and turn off all output
in the case of (a). In the case of (b), it will stop calculation and hold or turn off all output
according to the parameter setting.
Note that the AnS series module will turn off the output in either of cases (a) and (b).
(a) The power supply module has over current protection equipment and over voltage
protection equipment.
(b) The PLC CPUs self-diagnosis functions, such as the watch dog timer error, detect
problems.
In addition, all output will be turned on when there are problems that the PLC CPU cannot
detect, such as in the I/O controller. Build a fail safe circuit exterior to the PLC that will make
sure the equipment operates safely at such times. See section 9.1 of this manual for
example fail safe circuits.
(3) Output could be left on or off when there is trouble in the outputs module relay or transistor.
So build an external monitoring circuit that will monitor any single outputs that could cause
serious trouble.

[DESIGN PRECAUTIONS]
!
DANGER
When overcurrent which exceeds the rating or caused by short-circuited load flows in the output
module for a long time, it may cause smoke or fire. To prevent this, configure an external safety
circuit, such as fuse.
Build a circuit that turns on the external power supply when the PLC main module power is
turned on. If the external power supply is turned on first, it could result in erroneous output or
erroneous operation.
When there are communication problems with the data link, refer to the corresponding data link
manual for the operating status of each station. Not doing so could result in erroneous output or
erroneous operation.
When connecting a peripheral device to the CPU module or connecting a personal computer or
the like to the intelligent function module to exercise control (data change) on the running PLC,
configure up an interlock circuit in the sequence program to ensure that the whole system will
always operate safely.
Also before exercising other control (program change, operating status change (status control))
on the running PLC, read the manual carefully and fully confirm safety.
Especially for the above control on the remote PLC from an external device, an immediate
action may not be taken for PLC trouble due to a data communication fault.
In addition to configuring up the interlock circuit in the sequence program, corrective and other
actions to be taken as a system for the occurrence of a data communication fault should be
predetermined between the external device and PLC CPU.
!
CAUTION
Do not bunch the control wires or communication cables with the main circuit or power wires, or
install them close to each other. They should be installed 100 mm (3.94 inch) or more from
each other. Not doing so could result in noise that would cause erroneous operation.
When controlling items like lamp load, heater or solenoid valve using an output module, large
current (approximately ten times greater than that present in normal circumstances) may flow
when the output is turned OFF to ON.
Take measures such as replacing the module with one having sufficient rated current.

[INSTALLATION PRECAUTIONS]
!
CAUTION
Use the PLC in an environment that meets the general specifications contained in this manual.
Using this PLC in an environment outside the range of the general specifications could result in
electric shock, fire, erroneous operation, and damage to or deterioration of the product.
Hold down the module loading lever at the module bottom, and securely insert the module
fixing latch into the fixing hole in the base unit.
Incorrect loading of the module can cause a malfunction, failure or drop.
When using the PLC in the environment of much vibration, tighten the module with a screw.
Tighten the screw in the specified torque range. Undertightening can cause a drop, short circuit
or malfunction. Overtightening can cause a drop, short circuit or malfunction due to damage to
the screw or module.
When installing extension cables, be sure that the connectors of base unit are installed
correctly. After installation, check them for looseness. Poor connections could cause an input or
output failure.
Securely load the memory card into the memory card loading connector. After loading, check
for lifting. Lifting can cause a malfunction due to a contact fault.
Completely turn off the external power supply before loading or unloading the module. Not
doing so could result in electric shock or damage to the product.
Note that online module change can be made when the QnPHCPU is used.
Note that there are restrictions on the modules that can be changed online and each module
has a predetermined changing procedure.
For details, refer to the section of online module change in this manual.
Do not directly touch the module's conductive parts or electronic components. Touching the
conductive parts could cause an operation failure or give damage to the module.
[WIRING PRECAUTIONS]
!
DANGER
Completely turn off the external power supply when installing or placing wiring. Not completely
turning off all power could result in electric shock or damage to the product.
When turning on the power supply or operating the module after installation or wiring work, be
sure that the module's terminal covers are correctly attached. Not attaching the terminal cover
could result in electric shock.

[WIRING PRECAUTIONS]
!
CAUTION
Be sure to ground the FG terminals and LG terminals to the protective ground conductor. Not
doing so could result in electric shock or erroneous operation.
When wiring in the PLC, be sure that it is done correctly by checking the product's rated voltage
and the terminal layout. Connecting a power supply that is different from the rating or incorrectly
wiring the product could result in fire or damage.
External connections shall be crimped or pressure welded with the specified tools, or correctly
soldered. Imperfect connections could result in short circuit, fires, or erroneous operation.
Tighten the terminal screws with the specified torque. If the terminal screws are loose, it could
result in short circuits, fire, or erroneous operation. Tightening the terminal screws too far may
cause damages to the screws and/or the module, resulting in fallout, short circuits, or
malfunction.
Be sure there are no foreign substances such as sawdust or wiring debris inside the module.
Such debris could cause fires, damage, or erroneous operation.
The module has an ingress prevention label on its top to prevent foreign matter, such as wire
offcuts, from entering the module during wiring.
Do not peel this label during wiring.
Before starting system operation, be sure to peel this label because of heat dissipation.

4.3 Switch Operation After Writing in Program
When writing a program into the CPU module, do not turn off the system protect set
switch SW1 in advance (When the switch is turned off, the system will not be
protected).
(1) When a program is written while CPU module is stopped:
When a program is written while the CPU module is stopped, operate the switch
in the order shown below.
1) RUN / STOP switch
: STOP
"RUN" LED: Turns off
CPU module in stop status Write a program.
2) RESET / L.CLR switch : Tilt this switch to RESET once, and return it to the
original center position.
3) RUN / STOP switch
: STOP RUN
"RUN" LED: Turns on
CPU module in running status
(2) When a program is written while CPU module is running.
When a program is written while the CPU module is running, the switch need not
be operated.
POINTS
(1) Even if the RUN/STOP switch is set to RUN immediately after a program is
written when the CPU module is in the stop status, CPU module will not come
into RUN status.
When the CPU module is reset with the RESET / L.CLR switch and the
RUN/STOP switch is set to RUN after a program has been written, the CPU
module can be brought into RUN status.
(2) If the CPU module is desired to be brought into RUN status without resetting it,
operate the RUN/STOP switch from STOP to RUN, RUN to STOP, and STOP
to RUN in that order.
After the seconds STOP to RUN switch operation, the CPU module is brought
into RUN status.
(3) When a program is written while the CPU module is running in boot operation,
the program written during the running is written into the program memory.
After a program has been written while the CPU module is running, write the
program also into the boot original memory. Failure to write a program into the
boot original memory will run an old program at the time of the next boot
operation.
(For details of the boot operation, see Process CPU User's Manual (Function
Explanation, Program Fundamentals) ).

another type.
(2) To perform an online module change using a Process CPU in a multiple CPU
system, "Enable online module change for other CPU" must be selected in the
multiple CPU setting dialog box on the PLC parameter screen.
There are restrictions on the versions of the CPU modules that configure a
multiple CPU system. For details, refer to the Process CPU User's Manual
(Function Explanation, Program Fundamentals).

5 POWER SUPPLY MODULE
MELSEC-Q
POINTS
1 : Overcurrent protection
The overcurrent protection device shuts off the 5 V, 24 VDC circuit and stops
the system if the current flowing in the circuit exceeds the specified value.
The LED of the power supply module is unlit or lit dimly upon a voltage drop.
If this device is activated, switch the input power supply off and eliminate the
cause such as insufficient current capacity or short. Then, a few minutes later,
switch it on to restart the system.
The initial start for the system takes place when the current value becomes
normal.
2 : Overvoltage protection
The overvoltage protection device shuts off the 5 VDC circuit and stops the
system if a voltage of 5.5 to 6.5 VDC is applied to the circuit. When this device
is activated, the power supply module LED is switched OFF. If this happens,
switch the input power OFF, then a few minutes later ON. This causes the
initial start for the system to take place. The power supply module must be
changed if the system is not booted and the LED remains OFF.
3 : Permissible instantaneous power failure time
(1) For AC input power supply
y An instantaneous power failure lasting less than 20ms will cause AC
down to be detected, but operation will continue.
y An instantaneous power failure lasting more than 20ms may cause the
operation to continue or initial start to take place depending on the power
supply load.
Furthermore, by using the same AC power supply for the AC input
module and the power supply module, it is possible to prevent the
sensor, to which the AC input module is connected, from turning OFF
when it is ON when the power is turned OFF.
However, if only the AC input module is connected to the AC line, which
is connected to the power suppludetection of the AC down for the power
supply module may be delayed by the capacitor in the AC input module.
Thus, connect a load of approx. 30mA per QX10 unit to the AC line.
(2) For DC input power supply
y An instantaneous power failure lasting less than 10ms (*4) will cause
24VDC down to be detected, but operation will continue.
y An instantaneous power failure lasting more than 10ms (*4) may cause
the operation to continue or initial start to take place depending on the
power supply load.
( 4: This is for a 24VDC input. This is 10ms or less for 24VDC or less.)

5 POWER SUPPLY MODULE
MELSEC-Q
5.1.2 Selecting the power supply module
The power supply module is selected according to the total of current consumption
of the base units, I/O modules and intelligent function module, supplied by its power
supply module.
For the internal current consumption of 5 VDC of the base unit, see Chapter 6.
For the internal current consumption of 5 VDC of the I/O modules,
intelligent function module, special function module, and peripheral
devices, see the User's Manuals of their respective modules.
For devices obtained by a user, see the manual for the respective device.
(1) When the base unit is of Q3 B or Q6 B:
Power supply module
Q61P-A1, Q61P-A2,
etc.
Base unit
Q35B, Q65B, etc.
CPU module 1
Q12PHCPU, Q25PHCPU
Peripheral devices, converter
and cables, etc. (for connection
between CPU module and PC)
I/O module
QX10, QY10, etc.
Intelligent function module
Q64AD, QJ71LP21-25, etc.
1: The CPU module is loaded on the Q3 B main base
unit.
(a) Selection of power supply module for use of Q52B or Q55B extension base
unit
Using the Q52B or Q55B supplies 5VDC power from the power supply
module of the main base unit through the extension cable.
Therefore, note the following when using the Q52B or Q55B.
1) The power supply module to be loaded on the main base unit should be
selected to cover also the 5VDC used on the Q52B or Q55B.
For example, either of the following power supply modules must be
mounted on the main base unit, when the current consumption on the
main base unit is 3A and that on the Q52B or Q55B is 1A.
5VDC Rated output current
Type
6A
Q61P-A1, Q61P-A2, Q63P
8.5A
Q64P
2) Since 5VDC is supplied to the Q52B or Q55B through the extension
cable, a voltage drop occurs at the extension cable.
You must select the power supply module and extension cable length to
ensure that the "IN" connector voltage of the Q52B or Q55B is 4.75V or
more.
For details of a voltage drop, refer to Section 6.6 Guideline for Use of
Extension Base Units.
5-4
5-4
5 POWER SUPPLY MODULE
MELSEC-Q
(b) Ideas for reducing voltage drops
The following methods are effective to reduce voltage drops at the extension
cables.
1) Changing the module loading positions
Load large current consumption modules on the main base unit.
Load small current consumption modules on the extension base unit.
2) Using short extension cables
The shorter the extension cable is, the smaller the resistance and voltage
drops are.
Use the shortest possible extension cables.
5.1.3 Precaution when connecting the uninterruptive power supply
Be sure of the following terms when connecting the Process CPU system to the
uninterruptive power supply (abbreviated as UPS hereafter):
Use a UPS which employs the constant inverter power supply method with 5 % or less
voltage fluctuation.
Do not use a UPS with the constant commercial power supply method.

Since the Q5†B is supplied with 5VDC from the power supply module on the main
base unit, a voltage drop occurs at extension cables.
Improper I/O may be provided if the specified voltage (4.75VDC or higher) is not
supplied to the "IN" connector of the Q5†B.
When using the Q5†B, make sure that the "IN" connector of the Q5†B is supplied
with 4.75VDC or higher.
And it is recommend to connect it with the shortest possible extension cable right after
connecting the main base unit, so as to minimize the effects of voltage drop.
(1) When only the Q5†B is connected to the extension base unit
(a) Selection condition
4.75VDC or higher should be supplied to the "IN" connector of the Q5†B in
the final extension stage.
(b) How to calculate voltage to "IN" connector
The 5VDC output voltage of the power supply module on the main base
unit is set to at least 4.90VDC.
Therefore, the Q5†B can be used if the voltage drop is 0.15VDC or lower
(4.9VDC - 4.75VDC = 0.15VDC).

8 EMC AND LOW VOLTAGE DIRECTIVE
For the products sold in European countries, the conformance to the EMC Directive,
which is one of the European Directive, has been a legal obligation since 1996. Also,
conformance to the Low Voltage Directive, another European Directive, has been a
legal obligation since 1997.
Manufacturers who recognize their products must conform to the EMC and Low
Voltage Directive required to declare that their products conform to these Directives
and put a "CE mark" on their products.
8.1 Requirements for Conformance to EMC Directive
The EMC Directive specifies that products placed on the market must "be so
constructed that they do not cause excessive electromagnetic interference (emissions)
and are not unduly affected by electromagnetic interference (immunity)".
The applicable products are requested to meet these requirements. The sections 8.1.1
through 8.1.5 summarize the precautions on conformance to the EMC Directive of the
machinery constructed using the MELSEC-Q series PLCs.
The details of these precautions has been prepared based on the control requirements
and the applicable standards control. However, we will not assure that the overall
machinery manufactured according to these details conforms to the above-mentioned
directives. The method of conformance to the EMC Directive and the judgment on
whether or not the machinery conforms to the EMC Directive must be determined
finally by the manufacturer of the machinery.

8.1.2 Installation instructions for EMC Directive
The PLC is open equipment and must be installed within a control cabinet for use. This
not only ensures safety but also ensures effective shielding of PLC-generated
electromagnetic noise.
(1) Control cabinet
(a) Use a conductive control cabinet.
(b) When attaching the control cabinet's top plate or base plate, mask painting
and weld so that good surface contact can be made between the cabinet
and plate.
(c) To ensure good electrical contact with the control cabinet, mask the paint on
the installation bolts of the inner plate in the control cabinet so that contact
between surfaces can be ensured over the widest possible area.
(d) Earth the control cabinet with a thick wire so that a low impedance
connection to ground can be ensured even at high frequencies.
(e) Holes made in the control cabinet must be 10 cm (3.94 inch) diameter or
less. If the holes are 10 cm (3.94 inch) or larger, radio frequency noise may
be emitted.
In addition, because radio waves leak through a clearance between the
control panel door and the main unit, reduce the clearance as much as
practicable.
The leakage of radio waves can be suppressed by the direct application of
an EMI gasket on the paint surface.
Our tests have been carried out on a panel having the damping
characteristics of 37 dB max. and 30 dB mean (measured by 3 m method
with 30 to 300 MHz).
(2) Connection of power and earth wires
Earthing and power supply wires for the PLC system must be connected as
described below.
(a) Provide an earthing point near the power supply module. Earth the power
supply's LG and FG terminals (LG : Line Ground, FG : Frame Ground) with
the thickest and shortest wire possible. (The wire length must be 30 cm
(11.81 inch) or shorter.) The LG and FG terminals function is to pass the
noise generated in the PLC system to the ground, so an impedance that is
as low as possible must be ensured. As the wires are used to relieve the
noise, the wire itself carries a large noise content and thus short wiring
means that the wire is prevented from acting as an antenna.
8
(b) The earth wire led from the earthing point must be twisted with the power
supply wires. By twisting with the earthing wire, noise flowing from the power
supply wires can be relieved to the earthing. However, if a filter is installed
on the power supply wires, the wires and the earthing wire may not need to
be twisted.

MELSEC-Q
8.1.3 Cables
The cables extracted from the control panel contain a high frequency noise
component. On the outside of the control panel, therefore, they serve as antennas to
emit noise. To prevent noise emission, use shielded cable for the cables which are
connected to the I/O modules and intelligent function modules and may be extracted to
the outside of the control panel.
The use of a shielded cable also increases noise resistance. The signal lines
connected to the PLC I/O modules and intelligent function modules use shielded
cables to assure noise resistance under the conditions where the shield is earthed. If a
shielded cable is not used or not earthed correctly, the noise resistance will not meet
the specified requirements.
When the shield of a shielded cable is earthed to the cabinet body, please ensure that
the shield contact with the body is over a large surface area. If the cabinet body is
painted it will be necessary to remove paint from the contact area. All fastenings must
be metallic and the shield and earthing contact must be made over the largest
available surface area. If the contact surfaces are too uneven for optimal contact to be
made either use washers to correct for surface inconsistencies or use an abrasive to
level the surfaces. The following diagrams show examples of how to provide good
surface contact of shield earthing by use of a cable clamp.
(1) Earthing of shielded of shield cable
(a) Earth the shield of the shielded cable as near the module as possible taking
care so that the earthed cables are not induced electromagnetically by the
cable to be earthed.
(b) Take an appropriate measures so that the shield section of the shielded
cable from which the outer cover was partly removed for exposure is earthed
to the control panel on an increased contact surface. A clamp may also be
used as shown in the figure below. In this case, however, apply a cover to
the painted inner wall surface of the control panel which comes in contact
with the clamp.

Note) The method of earthing by soldering a wire onto the shield section of the

8.1.5 Others
(1) Ferrite core
A ferrite core has the effect of reducing radiated noise in the 30MHz to 100MHz
band.
It is not required to fit ferrite cores to cables, but it is recommended to fit ferrite
cores if shield cables pulled out of the enclosure do not provide sufficient
shielding effects.
It should be noted that the ferrite cores should be fitted to the cables in the
position immediately before they are pulled out of the enclosure. If the fitting
position is improper, the ferrite will not produce any effect.
In the CC-Link system, however, ferrite cores cannot be fitted to cables.
(2) Noise filter (power supply line filter)
A noise filter is a component which has an effect on conducted noise.
It is not required to fit the noise filter to the power supply line, but fitting it can
further suppress noise.
(The noise filter has the effect of reducing conducted noise of 10 MHz or less.)
The precautions required when installing a noise filter are described below.
(a) Do not bundle the wires on the input side and output side of the noise filter.
When bundled, the output side noise will be induced into the input side wires
from which the noise was filtered.

8.2 Requirement to Conform to the Low Voltage Directive
The Low Voltage Directive requires each device that operates with the power supply
ranging from 50 to 1000VAC and 75 to 1500VDC to satisfy the safety requirements.
In Sections 8.2.1 to 8.2.6, cautions on installation and wiring of the MELSEC-Q series
PLC to conform to the Low Voltage Directive are described.
We have put the maximum effort to develop this material based on the requirements
and standards of the regulation that we have collected. However, compatibility of the
devices which are fabricated according to the contents of this manual to the above
regulation is not guaranteed. Each manufacturer who fabricates such device should
make the final judgement about the application method of the Low Voltage Directive
and the product compatibility.
8.2.1 Standard applied for MELSEC-Q series PLC
The standard applied for MELSEC-Q series PLC is EN61010-1 safety of devices used
in measurement rooms, control rooms, or laboratories.
The MELSEC-Q series PLC modules which operate at the rated voltage of
50VAC/75VDC or above are also developed to conform to the above standard.
The modules which operate at the rated voltage of less than 50VAC/75VDC are out of
the Low Voltage Directive application range.
8.2.2 MELSEC-Q series PLC selection
(1) Power supply module
There are dangerous voltages (voltages higher than 42.4V peak) inside the
power supply modules of the 100/200VAC rated I/O voltages. Therefore, the CE
marked models are enhanced in insulation internally between the primary and
secondary.
(2) I/O module
There are dangerous voltages (voltages higher than 42.4V peak) inside the I/O
modules of the 100/200VAC rated I/O voltages. Therefore, the CE marked
models are enhanced in insulation internally between the primary and secondary.
The I/O modules of 24VDC or less rating are out of the Low Voltage Directive
application range.
(3) CPU module, memory card, base unit
Using 5VDC circuits inside, the above modules are out of the Low Voltage
Directive application range.
(4) Intelligent function modules (special function modules)
The intelligent function modules (special function modules) such as the analog,
network and positioning modules are 24VDC or less in rated voltage and are
therefore out of the Low Voltage Directive application range.
(5) Display device
Use the CE marked display device.

8.2.3 Power supply
The insulation specification of the power supply module was designed assuming
installation category II. Be sure to use the installation category II power supply to the
PLC.
The installation category indicates the durability level against surge voltage generated by
a thunderbolt. Category I has the lowest durability; category IV has the highest durability.

Category II indicates a power supply whose voltage has been reduced by two or more
levels of isolating transformers from the public power distribution.
8.2.4 Control box
Because the PLC is an open device (a device designed to be stored within another
module), be sure to use it after storing in the control box.
(1) Electrical shock prevention
In order to prevent persons who are not familiar with the electric facility such as
the operators from electric shocks, the control box must have the following
functions :
(a) The control box must be equipped with a lock so that only the personnel who
has studied about the electric facility and have enough knowledge can open it.
(b) The control box must have a structure which automatically stops the power
supply when the box is opened.
(2) Dustproof and waterproof features
8-7
The control box also has the dustproof and waterproof functions. Insufficient
dustproof and waterproof features lower the insulation withstand voltage, resulting
in insulation destruction. The insulation in our PLC is designed to cope with the
pollution level 2, so use in an environment with pollustion level 2 or below.
Pollution level 1 : An environment where the air is dry and conductive
dust does not exist.
Pollution level 2 : An environment where conductive dust
does not usually exist, but occasional temporary
conductivity occurs due to the accumulated dust. Generally,
this is the level for inside the control box equivalent to IP54
in a control room or on the floor of a typical factory.
Pollution level 3 : An environment where conductive dust exits and conductivity
may be generated due to the accumulated dust.
An environment for a typical factory floor.
Pollution level 4 : Continuous conductivity may occur due to rain, snow,
etc. An outdoor environment.
As shown above, the PLC can realize the pollution level 2 when stored in a
control box equivalent to IP54.

8.2.5 Grounding
There are the following two different grounding terminals.
Use either grounding terminal in an earthed status.
Protective grounding
: Maintains the safety of the PLC and improves the
noise resistance.
Functional grounding
: Improves the noise resistance.
8.2.6 External wiring
(1) 24VDC external power supply
For the MELSEC-Q series PLC 24VDC I/O modules and the intelligent function
modules (special function modules) which require external supply power, use a
model whose 24VDC circuit is intensively insulated from the hazardous voltage
circuit.
(2) External devices
When a device with a hazardous voltage circuit is externally connected to the
PLC, use a model whose circuit section of the interface to the PLC is intensively
insulated from the hazardous voltage circuit.
(3) Intensive insulation
Intensive insulation refers to the insulation with the dielectric withstand voltage
shown in Table 8.1.

9 LOADING AND INSTALLATION
In order to increase the reliability of the system and exploit the maximum performance
of its functions, this section describes the methods and precautions for the mounting
and installation of the system.
9.1 General Safety Requirements
!
DANGER
Install a safety circuit external to the PLC that keeps the entire
system safe even when there are problems with the external power
supply or the PLC module. Otherwise, trouble could result from
erroneous output or erroneous operation.
(1) Outside the PLC, construct mechanical damage preventing
interlock circuits such as emergency stop, protective circuits,
positioning upper and lower limits switches and interlocking
forward/reverse operations.
(2) When the PLC detects the following problems, it will stop
calculation and turn off all output in the case of (a).
In the case of (b), it will stop calculation and hold or turn off all
output according to the parameter setting.
(a) The power supply module has over current protection
equipment and over voltage protection equipment.
(b) The PLC CPUs self-diagnostic functions, such as the
watchdog timer error, detect problems.
In addition, all output will be turned on when there are problems
that the PLC CPU cannot detect, such as in the I/O controller.
(3) Output could be left on or off when there is trouble in the outputs
module relay or transistor. So build an external monitoring circuit
that will monitor any single outputs that could cause serious
trouble.
When overcurrent which exceeds the rating or caused by shortcircuited load flows in the output module for a long time, it may
cause smoke or fire. To prevent this, configure an external safety
circuit, such as fuse.
Build a circuit that turns on the external power supply when the PLC
main module power is turned on. If the external power supply is
turned on first, it could result in erroneous output or erroneous
operation.
When there are communication problems with the data link, refer to
the corresponding data link manual for the operating status of each
station. Not doing so could result in erroneous output or erroneous
operation.operating status of each station. Not doing so could result
in erroneous output or erroneous operation.

!
DANGER
When connecting a peripheral device to the CPU module or connecting
a personal computer or the like to the special function module to
exercise control (data change) on the running PLC, configure up an
interlock circuit in the sequence program to ensure that the whole
system will always operate safely.
Also before exercising other control (program change, operating status
change (status control)) on the running PLC, read the manual carefully
and fully confirm safety.
Especially for the above control on the remote PLC from an external
device, an immediate action may not be taken for PLC trouble due to a
data communication fault.
In addition to configuring up the interlock circuit in the sequence
program, corrective and other actions to be taken as a system for the
occurrence of a data communication fault should be predetermined
between the external device and PLC CPU.
!
CAUTION
Do not bunch the control wires or communication cables with the main
circuit or power wires, or install them close to each other. They should
be installed 100 mm (3.94 inch) or more from each other.
Not doing so could result in noise that would cause erroneous
operation.
When controlling items like lamp load, heater or solenoid valve using an
output module, large current (approximately ten times greater than that
present in normal circumstances) may flow when the output is turned
OFF to ON. Take measures such as replacing the module with one
having sufficient rated current.
When the PLC power supply is switched ON-OFF, correct control output may not be
performed temporarily due to differences in delay time and starting time between the
PLC power supply and the external power supply for the controlled object (especially
DC).
For example, if the external power supply for the controlled object is switched on in a
DC output module and then the PLC power supply is switched on, the DC output
module may provide false output instantaneously at power-on of the PLC. Therefore, it
is necessary to make up a circuit that can switch on the PLC power supply first.
Also, an abnormal operation may be performed if an external power supply fault or
PLC failure takes place.
To prevent any of these abnormal operations from leading to the abnormal operation of
the whole system and in a fail-safe viewpoint, areas which can result in machine
breakdown and accidents due to abnormal operations (e.g. emergency stop, protective
and interlock circuits) should be constructed outside the PLC.
The following page gives examples of system designing in the above viewpoint.

In such cases, all I/O points turn ON or OFF depending on a condition of
problem, and normal operating conditions and operating safety cannot
sometimes be maintained.
Though Mitsubishi PLCs are manufactured under strict quality control, they may
cause failure or abnormal operations due to unspecific reasons. To prevent the

9.2 Calculating Heat Generation by PLC
The ambient temperature inside the board storing the PLC must be suppressed to a
PLC usable ambient temperature of 55°C.
For the design of radiation from the storing board, it is necessary to know the average
power consumption (heating value) of the devices and instruments stored in the board.
Here the method of obtaining the average power consumption of the PLC system is
described.
From the power consumption, calculate a rise in ambient temperature inside the board.
How to calculate average power consumption
The power consuming parts of the PLC are roughly classified into six
blocks as shown below.
(1) Power consumption of power supply module
The power conversion efficiency of the power supply module is approx. 70 %,
i.e., 30 % of the output power is consumed by heating. As a result, 3/7 of the
output power becomes the power consumption.
Therefore the calculation formula is as follows.
3
Wpw =
(I5v 5) (W)
7
I5V: Current consumption of logic 5 VDC circuit of each module
(2) Power consumption of a total of 5 VDC logic section of each
module
The power consumption of the 5 VDC output circuit section of the power supply
module is the power consumption of each module (including the current
consumption of the base unit).
W 5V = I5V
5 (W)
(3) A total of 24 VDC average power consumption of the output module
(power consumption for simultaneous ON points)
The average power of the external 24 VDC power is the total power consumption
of each module.
W 24V = I24V
24 (W)
(4) Average power consumption due to voltage drop in the output
section of the output module
(Power consumption for simultaneous ON points)
W OUT = IOUT

The total of the power consumption values calculated for each block becomes
the power consumption of the overall sequencer system.
W = W PW + W 5V + W 24V + W OUT + W IN + W S (W)
From this overall power consumption (W), calculate the heating value and a rise
in ambient temperature inside the board.
The outline of the calculation formula for a rise in ambient temperature inside the
board is shown below.
W
T=
(°C)
UA
W : Power consumption of overall sequencer system (value obtained above)
A : Surface area inside the board
U : When the ambient temperature inside the board is uniformed by a fan......... 6
When air inside the board is not circulated .............................................. 4
POINT
When a rise in ambient temperature inside the board exceeds the specified limit, it
is recommended that you install a heat exchanger in the board to lower the ambient
temperature inside the board.
If a normal ventilating fan is used, dust will be sucked into the PLC together with
the external air, and it may affect the performance of the PLC.

9.3.1 Precaution on installation
!
CAUTION
Use the PLC in an environment that meets the general specifications
contained in this manual. Using this PLC in an environment outside the
range of the general specifications could result in electric shock, fire,
erroneous operation, and damage to or deterioration of the product.
Hold down the module loading lever at the module bottom, and
securely insert the module fixing latch into the fixing hole in the base
unit. Incorrect loading of the module can cause a malfunction, failure or
drop. When using the PLC in the environment of much vibration, tighten
the module with a screw.
Tighten the screw in the specified torque range. Undertightening can
cause a drop, short circuit or malfunction. Overtightening can cause a
drop, short circuit or malfunction due to damage to the screw or
module.
When installing more cables, be sure that the base unit and the module
connectors are installed correctly. After installation, check them for
looseness. Poor connections could cause an input or output failure.
Securely load the memory card by pushing it into the memory card
loading slot. Check for insecure loading after loading the memory card.
Not doing so can cause a malfunction due to a contact fault.
Completely turn off the external power supply before loading or
unloading the module. Not doing so could result in electric shock or
damage to the product.
Note that online module change can be made when the QnPHCPU
is used.
Note that there are restrictions on the modules that can be changed
online and each module has a predetermined changing procedure.
For details, refer to the section of online module change in this
manual.
Do not directly touch the module's conductive parts or electronic
components. Touching the conductive parts could cause an operation
failure or give damage to the module.
This section gives instructions for handling the CPU, I/O, intelligent function and power
supply modules, base units and so on.
(1) Module enclosure, terminal block connectors and pin connectors are made of resin;
do not drop them or subject them to strong impact.
(2) Do not remove modules' printed circuit boards from the enclosure in order to avoid
changes in operation.
(3) Tighten the module fixing screws and terminal block screws within the tightening
torque range specified below.

9.5 Connection and Disconnection of Extension Cable
(1) Instructions for handling an extension cable
• Do not stamp an extension cable.
• An extension cable must be connected to the base unit when the base cover
has been installed.
(After you have set the extension number to the extension base unit, reinstall
and screw the base cover.)
• When running an extension cable, the minimum bending radius of the cable
should be 55mm (2.17 inch) or more.
If it is less than 55mm (2.17 inch), a malfunction may occur due to characteristic
deterioration, open cable or the like.
• When connecting or disconnecting an extension cable, do not hold the ferrite
cores mounted at both ends of the cable.
Hold the connector part of the cable for connection or disconnection.
Holding the ferrite core may cause the cable to open within the connector.
Also, if the ferrite core is shifted, the characteristic will change. When handling
the cable, take care not to shift the ferrite core positions.
(2) Connection of extension cable
POINT
When connecting an extension base unit to the main base unit with an extension
cable, always plug the OUT side connector of the main base unit and the IN side
connector of the extension base unit with an extension cable. The system will not
operate properly if the extension cable is connected in the form of IN to IN, OUT to
OUT or IN to OUT.
When connecting two or more extension base units, plug the OUT side connector

9.6.1 The precautions on the wiring
!
DANGER
Completely turn off the external power supply when installing or
placing wiring. Not completely turning off all power could result in
electric shock or damage to the product.
When turning on the power supply or operating the module after
installation or wiring work, be sure that the module's terminal covers are
correctly attached. Not attaching the terminal cover could result in
electric shock.
!
CAUTION
Be sure to ground the FG terminals and LG terminals to the
protective ground conductor. Not doing so could result in electric
shock or erroneous operation.
When wiring in the PLC, be sure that it is done correctly by checking
the product's rated voltage and the terminal layout. Connecting a
power supply that is different from the rating or incorrectly wiring the
product could result in fire or damage.
External connections shall be crimped or pressure welded with the
specified tools, or correctly soldered. Imperfect connections could
result in short circuit, fires, or erroneous operation.
Tighten the terminal screws with the specified torque. If the terminal screws
are loose, it could result in short circuits, fire, or erroneous operation.
Tightening the terminal screws too far may cause damages to the screws
and/or the module, resulting in fallout, short circuits, or malfunction.
Be sure there are no foreign substances such as sawdust or wiring
debris inside the module. Such debris could cause fires, damage, or
erroneous operation.
The module has an ingress prevention label on its top to prevent
foreign matter, such as wire offcuts, from entering the module during
wiring.
Do not peel this label during wiring.
Before starting system operation, be sure to peel this label because
of heat dissipation.
The precautions on the connection of the power cables are described below.
(1) Power supply wiring
(a) Separate the PLC's power supply line from the lines for I/O devices and
power devices as shown below.

(1) Visual inspection
Visually check the following.
1) Movement of sequencer (stopped condition, operating condition)
2) Power supply on/off
3) Status of input/output devices
4) Power supply module, CPU module, I/O module, intelligent function module,
installation condition of extension cable
5) Status of wiring (I/O cables, cables)
6) Display status of various types of indicators ("POWER" LED, "RUN" LED,
"ERR." LED, I/O LED)
7) Status of setting of various types of set switches (Setting of No. of stages of
extension base unit, power interrupt hold-on status)
After confirming items 1) to 7), connect the GX Developer, and check the
operating conditions of the PLC and the contents of the program.
(2) Check of trouble
Check to see how the operating condition of the PLC varies while the PLC is
operated as follows.
1) Set the RUN/STOP switch to STOP.
2) Reset the trouble with the RESET/L.CLR switch.
3) Turn ON and OFF the power supply.
(3) Reduction in area

11.4 Canceling of Errors
The Process CPU can perform the cancel operation for errors only when the errors
allow the CPU module to continue its operation.
To cancel the errors, follow the steps shown below.
1) Eliminate the cause of the error.
2) Store the error code to be canceled in the special register SD50.
3) Energize the special relay SM50 (OFF ON).
4) The error to be canceled is canceled.
After the CPU module is reset by the canceling of the error, the special relays, special
registers, and LEDs associated with the error are returned to the status under which
the error occurred.
If the same error occurs again after the cancellation of the error, it will be registered
again in the error history.
When multiple enunciators(F) detected are canceled, the first one with No. F only is
canceled.

(1) When the error is canceled with the error code to be canceled stored in the
SD50, the lower one digit of the code is neglected.
(Example)
If error codes 2100 and 2101 occur, and error code 2100 to cancel error code
2101.
If error codes 2100 and 2111 occur, error code 2111 is not canceled even if error
code 2100 is canceled.
(2) Errors developed due to trouble in other than the CPU module are not canceled
even if the special relay (SM50) and special register (SD50) are used to cancel
the error.
(Example)
The cause of "SP. UNIT DOWN" error cannot be removed even by using the
special relay (SM50) and special register (SD50), because the error is
developed on the Q bus.
Refer to the error code list in Section 11.3.2 to remove the cause of the error.

Depending on response time setting, noise is
imported as input.
Change response time setting.
Example : 1ms 5ms
(Setting of a shorter response time may produce
a higher effect on periodic excessive noise.)If no
effects are produced by the above, take basic
actions to prevent excessive noise form
entering, e.g. avoid bundling the power and I/O
cables, and suppress noise by adding surge
absorbers to such noise sources as relays and
conductors used with the same power supply.)

<Calculation example of Example 4>
QX40
Leakage current
2.33mA
4.7k
Input module
24VDC
If a switch with an LED display
is connected to QX40 and a
current of 2.33 mA is leaked.
Voltage VTB across the terminal and common base is:
VTB = 2.33[mA] 5.6[k ] = 13[V] (Ignore the voltage drop caused by the LED.)
Because the condition for the OFF voltage ( 11 [V]) is not satisfied, the input does
not turn off. To correct this, connect a resistor as shown below.
QX40
Current I
4.7k
R
Input impedance
5.6k
24VDC
Calculation of current for resistor R
The voltage of QX40 across the terminals must be reduced to 11 [V] or less.
The required current is:
(24-11[V]) ÷ 4.7[k ] = 2.77[mA]
Therefore resistor R of flowing current I of 2.77 [mA] or more must be connected.
Calculation of resistance of connected resistor R
11[V]
11[V] R > 2.77[mA] 5.6[k ]
11[V] ÷ R > 2.77-1.96[mA]
11[V] ÷ 0.81[mA] > R
13.6[k ] > R
Resistance of the connected resistor R is obtained in the above equations.
Suppose that the resistance R is 12 [k ].
The power capacity W of the resistor during activation of the switch is:
2
W = (Applied voltage) / R
2
W = (28.8[V]) /12[k ]=0.069[W]
Because the resistance is selected so that the power capacity is three to five times
the actual power consumption, a third to a half [W] should be selected.
In this case, a resistor of 12 [k ] and a third to a half [W] should be connected across
the terminal and COM.

(9) A to Q/QnA conversion correspondences
Special relays SM1000 to SM1255 are the relays which correspond to ACPU special relays
M9000 to M9255 after A to Q/QnA conversion.
All of these special relays are controlled by the system so that users cannot turn them ON/OFF
in the program.
If users want to turn these relays ON/OFF, the program should be modified to use
QCPU/QnACPU special relays.
For SM1084 and SM1200 through SM1255, however, if a user can turn ON/OFF some of
special relays M9084 and M9200 through M9255 before conversion, the user can also turn
ON/OFF the corresponding relays among SM1084 and SM1200 through SM1255 after the
conversion.
For details on the ACPU special relays, see the user's manuals for the individual CPUs, and
MELSECNET or MELSECNET/B Data Link System Reference Manuals.
POINT
The processing time may be longer when converted special relays are used with QCPU.
Uncheck "A-series CPU compatibility setting" within the PC system setting in GX Developer
PC parameters when converted special relays are not used.
REMARK
The following are additional explanations about the Special Relay for Modification column.
1 When a special relay for modification is provided, the device number should be changed to
the provided QCPU/QnACPU special relay.
2 When
is provided, the converted special relay can be used for the device number.
3 When
is provided, the device number does not work with QCPU/QnACPU.

11.7 Special Register List
The special registers, SD, are internal registers with fixed applications in the PLC.
For this reason, it is not possible to use these registers in sequence programs in the same way
that normal registers are used.
However, data can be written as needed in order to control the CPU modules and remote I/O
modules.
Data stored in the special registers are stored as BIN values if no special designation has been
made to the contrary.
The headings in the table that follows have the following meanings.

(7) A to Q/QnA conversion correspondences
ACPU special registers D9000 to D9255 correspond to the special registers SD1000 to
SD1255 after A-series to the Q/QnA-series conversion.
Since data are all set to these special registers on the system side, the user cannot turn them
ON/OFF in a program.
When it is desired to set data on the user side, correct the program to use the special registers
for Q/QnA.
For SD1200 - SD1255, however, the user can set data to only the special registers, among
SD1200 - SD1255 after conversion, that correspond to those where the user could set data
among D9200 - D9255 before conversion.
For more detailed information concerning the contents of the ACPU special registers, see the
individual CPU User's Manual, and the MELSECNET and MELSECNET/B data link system
reference manual.

APPENDIX 1 Error Code Return to Origin During General Data Processing
The CPU module returns an error code to the general data processing request origin
when an error occurs and there is a general data processing request form the
peripheral equipment, intelligent function module, or network system. If an error occurs
when a general data processing is requested from the peripheral devices, intelligent
function module, and network system.
POINT
This error code is not an error that is detected by the CPU module self-diagnostic
function, so it is not stored in the special relay (SD0).
When the request origin is a GX Developer, a message or an error code is
displayed.
When the request origin is an intelligent function module or network system, an
error is returned to the process that was requested.
APPENDIX 1.1 Error code overall explanation
