Part Names and Functions 2.2 Safety Features The robot control system supports safety features described below. However, the user is recommended to strictly follow the proper usage of the robot system by thoroughly reading the attached manuals before using the system. Failure to read and understand the proper usage of the safety functions is highly dangerous. Among the following safety features, the Emergency Stop Switch and Safety Door Input are particularly important. Make sure that these and other features function properly before operating the robot system. For details, refer to the Setup & Operation 6. EMERGENCY. Emergency Stop Switch The EMERGENCY connector on the Drive Unit has expansion Emergency Stop input terminals used for connecting the Emergency Stop switches. Pressing any Emergency Stop switch can shut off the motor power immediately and the robot system will enter the Emergency Stop condition. Stop category of Emergency Stop input: Category 0 (refer to Safety Standard IEC60204-1) Safety Door Input In order to activate this feature, make sure that the Safety Door Input switch is connected to the EMERGENCY connector at the Drive Unit. When the safety door is opened, normally the Manipulator immediately stops the current operation, and the status of Manipulator power is operation-prohibited until the safety door is closed and the latched condition is released. In order to execute the Manipulator operation while the safety door is open, you must change the mode selector key switch on the Teach Pendant to the “Teach” mode. Manipulator operation is available only when the enable switch is on. In this case, the Manipulator is operated in low power status. Stop category of Safety door input: Category 1 (refer to Safety Standard IEC60204-1) Low Power Mode The motor power is reduced in this mode. Executing a power status change instruction will change to the restricted (low power) status regardless of conditions of the safety door or operation mode. The restricted (low power) status ensures the safety of the operator and reduces the possibility of peripheral equipment destruction or damage caused by careless operation. Dynamic Brake The dynamic brake circuit includes relays that short the motor armatures. The dynamic brake circuit is activated when there is an Emergency Stop input or when any of the following errors is detected: encoder cable disconnection, motor overload, irregular motor torque, motor speed error, servo error (positioning or speed overflow), irregular CPU, memory check-sum error and overheat condition inside the Motor Driver Module. Motor Overload Detection The dynamic brake circuit is activated when the system detects the overload status of the motor. Irregular Motor Torque (out-of-control manipulator) Detection The dynamic brake circuit is activated when irregular motor torque (motor output) is detected. 16 RC700DU / RC700DU-A Rev.9 Setup & Operation 2. Part Names and Functions Motor Speed Error Detection The dynamic brake circuit is activated when the system detects that the motor is running at incorrect speed. Positioning Overflow –Servo Error- Detection The dynamic brake circuit is activated when the system detects that the difference between the Manipulator’s actual position and commanded position exceeds the margin of error allowed. Speed Overflow –Servo Error- Detection The dynamic brake circuit is activated when the Manipulator’s actual speed is detected to mark an overflow (the actual speed is outside the nominal range) error. CPU Irregularity Detection Irregularity of CPU that controls the motor is detected by the watchdog timer. The system CPU and the motor controlling CPU inside the Drive Unit are also designed to constantly check each other for any discrepancies. If a discrepancy is detected, the dynamic brake circuit is activated. Memory Check-sum Error Detection The dynamic brake circuit is activated when a memory check-sum error is detected. Overheat Detection at the Motor Driver Module The dynamic brake circuit is activated when the temperature of the power device inside the Motor Driver module is above the nominal limit. Relay Deposition Detection The dynamic brake circuit is activated when relay deposition, junction error, or open fault is detected. Over-Voltage Detection The dynamic brake circuit is activated when the voltage of the Drive Unit is above the normal limit. AC Power Supply Voltage Drop Detection The dynamic brake circuit is activated when the drop of the power supply voltage is detected. Temperature Anomaly Detection The temperature anomaly is detected. Fan Malfunction Detection Malfunction of the fan rotation speed is detected. RC700DU / RC700DU-A Rev.9 17 Setup & Operation 3. Installation 3.

Installation 3.4.2 Connecting Manipulator to Drive Unit Connect the Manipulator to the Drive Unit by using the Power cable and the Signal cable. WARNING 26 RC700DU / RC700DU-A Rev.9 ■ Make sure that the power to the Drive Unit is turned OFF before connecting or disconnecting any cables. Connecting or disconnecting any cables with the power ON is extremely hazardous and may result in electric shock and malfunction of the Drive Unit. ■ Be sure to connect the cables properly. Do not allow unnecessary strain on the cables. (Do not put heavy objects on the cables. Do not bend or pull the cables forcibly.) The unnecessary strain on the cables may result in damage to the cables, disconnection, and/or contact failure. Damaged cables, disconnection, or contact failure is extremely hazardous and may result in electric shock and/or improper function of the system. CAUTION ■ The serial number of the Manipulator that should be connected is indicated on the Drive Unit. Connect the Drive Unit and the Manipulator correctly. Improper connection between the Drive Unit and the Manipulator may cause not only improper function of the robot system but also serious safety problems. The configuration data for the Manipulator and Manipulator model are stored in the Drive Unit. Therefore the Drive Unit should be connected to the Manipulator whose serial number is specified in the Connection Check label attached on the front of the Drive Unit. The Manipulator’s serial number is indicated on the signature label on the back of the Manipulator. ☞ NOTE Setup & Operation 3. Installation 3.5 Noise Countermeasures To minimize electrical noise conditions, the following items must be observed in the system’s cable wiring: To minimize electrical noise condition, be sure of followings for wiring. - The earth wire of the power supply should be grounded. (Ground resistance: 100 Ω or less) It is important to ground the frame of Drive Unit not only for prevention from electric shock, but also for reducing the influence of electric noise around the Drive Unit. Therefore, be sure to connect the earth wire (yellow/green) of the Drive Unit’s power cable to the ground terminal of the factory power supply. For details about the plug and AC power cable, refer to the Setup & Operation 3.3 Power Supply. - Do not tap power from a power line that connects to any equipment which may cause noise. - When you tap power for the Drive Unit and the single-phase AC motor from the same power line, change the phase of one or the other. Ensure that they will not be the same phase. - Use a twisted pair motor power line. - Do not run AC power lines and DC power lines in the same wiring duct, and separate them as far as possible. For example, separate the AC motor power line and the Drive Unit power line as far as possible from the sensor or valve I/O lines; and do not bundle both sets of wiring with the same cable tie. If more than one duct/cable must cross each other, they should cross perpendicularly. The preferable example is shown in the right figure. AC Line duct As far as possible DC line duct - Wire as short as possible to the I/O connector and EMERGENCY connector. Use a shielded cable and clamp the shield to the attached connector interior. Make sure to keep away from the peripheral noise source as far as possible. - Make sure that the induction elements used to connect to the Drive Unit’s I/O (such as relays and solenoid valves) have surge suppressors. If an induction element without a surge suppressor is used, make sure to connect a rectifying diode located at the induction element in parallel with it. In selecting a rectifying diode, make sure that it can handle the voltage and current incurred by the induction load. - To start and change revolutions of the conveyer’s (or the like’s) AC motor (ex: an induction motor or three-phase induction motor) regularly or abruptly, make sure to install a spark suppressor between the wires. The spark suppressor is more effective when placed closer to the motor. - As they are easily influenced by noise, keep cable such as USB, Ethernet, RS-232C, or fieldbus away from peripheral noise sources.

Connect a safeguard switch or Emergency Stop switch to the Drive Unit EMERGENCY connector for safety. When nothing is connected to the EMERGENCY connector, the Drive Unit does not operate normally. WARNING 32 RC700DU / RC700DU-A Rev.9 ■ Before connecting the connector, make sure that the pins are not bent. Connecting with the pins bent may damage the connector and result in malfunction of the robot system. EMERGENCY Connector 6.1 Safety Door Switch and Latch Release Switch The EMERGENCY connector has input terminals for the Safety Door switch and the Emergency Stop switch. Be sure to use these input terminals to keep the system safe. Connector Standard EMERGENCY connector (Drive Unit side) D-sub 25 male pin Mounting style #4 - 40 * The connector cable, terminal block, and connector kit are offered as options. 6.1.1 Safety Door Switch WARNING ■ The interlock of the Safety Door must be functioning when the robot system is operated. Do not operate the system under the condition that the switch cannot be turned ON/OFF (e.g. The tape is put around the switch.). Operating the robot system when the switch is not functioning properly is extremely hazardous and may cause serious safety problems as the Safety Door input cannot fulfill its intended function. In order to maintain a safe working zone, a safeguard must be erected around the Manipulator. The safeguard must have an interlock switch at the entrance to the working zone. The Safety Door that is described in this manual is one of the safeguards and an interlock of the Safety Door is called a Safety Door switch. Connect the Safety Door switch to the Safety Door input terminal on the EMERGENCY connector. The Safety Door switch has safety features such as temporary hold-up of the program or the operation-prohibited status that are activated whenever the Safety Door is opened. ☞ NOTE

Setup & Operation 6. EMERGENCY Observe the followings in designing the Safety Door switch and the Safety Door. - For the Safety Door switch, select a switch that opens as the Safety Door opens, and not by the spring of the switch itself. - The signal from the Safety Door (Safety Door input) is designed to input to two redundant signals. If the signals at the two inputs differ by two seconds or more, the system recognizes it to be a critical error. Therefore, make sure that the Safety Door switch has two separate redundant circuits and that each connects to the specified pins at the EMERGENCY connector on the Drive Unit. - The Safety Door must be designed and installed so that it does not close accidentally. 6.1.2 Latch Release Switch The software latches these conditions: - The safety door is open. - The operation mode is set to “TEACH”. The EMERGENCY connector has an input terminal for a latch release switch that cancels the latched conditions. Open : The latch release switch latches conditions that the safety door is open or the operation mode is “TEACH”. Closed : The latch release switch releases the latched conditions. When the latched TEACH mode is released while the safety door is open, the status of Manipulator power is operation-prohibited because the safety door is open at that time. To execute a Manipulator operation, close the safety door again, and then close the latch release input. 6.1.3 Checking Latch Release Switch Operation After connecting the safety door switch and latch release switch to the EMERGENCY connector, be sure to check the switch operation for safety by following the procedures described below before operating the Manipulator. (1) Turn ON the controller while the safety door is open in order to boot the software. (2) Make sure that “Safety” is displayed on the main window status bar. (3) Close the safety door, and turn ON the switch connecting to the latch release input. Make sure that the “Safety” is dimmed on the status bar. The information that the safety door is open can be latched by software based on the latch release input condition. Open : The latch release switch latches the condition that the safety door is open. To cancel the condition, close the safety door, and then close the safety door latch release input. Closed : The latch release switch does not latch the condition that the safety door is open. The latch release input also functions to acknowledge the change of to TEACH mode. In order to change the latched condition of TEACH mode, turn the mode selector key switch on the Teach Pendant to “Auto”. Then, close the latch release input. RC700DU / RC700DU-A Rev.9 33 ☞ ☞ NOTE NOTE

Setup & Operation 6. EMERGENCY 6.2 Emergency Stop Switch Connection 6.2.1 Emergency Stop Switch If it is desired to add an external Emergency Stop switch(es) in addition to the Emergency Stop on the Teach Pendant, be sure to connect such Emergency Stop switch(es) to the Emergency Stop input terminal on the EMERGENCY connector. The Emergency Stop switch connected must comply with the related safety standards (such as IEC60947-5-5) and the following: - It must be a push button switch that is “normally closed”. - A button that does not automatically return or resume. - The button must be mushroom-shaped and red. - The button must have a double contact that is “normally closed”. The signal from the Emergency Stop switch is designed to use two redundant circuits. If the signals at the two circuits differ by two seconds or more, the system recognizes it as a critical error. Therefore, make sure that the Emergency Stop switch has double contacts and that each circuit connects to the specified pins on the EMERGENCY connector at the Drive Unit. Refer to the Setup & Operation 6.4 Circuit and Wiring. 6.2.2 Checking Emergency Stop Switch Operation Once the Emergency Stop switch is connected to the EMERGENCY connector, continue the following procedure to make sure that the switch functions properly.
