The following environmental and safety considerations must be observed during all phases of operation, service and repair of Stepper Motor Controllers system. Failure to comply with these precautions violates safety standards of design, manufacture and intended use of the Stepper Motor Controllers, driver and motor. Please note that even a well-built Stepper Motor Controllers products operated and installed improperly, can be hazardous. Precaution must be observed by the user with respect to the load and operating environment. The customer is ultimately responsible for the proper selection, installation, and operation of the Stepper Motor Controllers, driver and motor system.

The atmosphere in which Stepper Motor Controllers are used must be conducive to good general practices of electrical/electronic equipment. Do not operate the Stepper Motor Controllers in the presence of flammable gases, dust, oil, vapor or moisture. For outdoor use, the Stepper Motor Controllers, driver and motor must be protected from the elements by an adequate cover, while still providing adequate air flow and cooling. Moisture may cause an electrical shock hazard and/or induce system breakdown. Due consideration should be given to the avoidance of liquids and vapors of any kind. Contact the factory should your application require specific IP ratings. It is wise to install the Stepper Motor Controllers, driver and motor in an environment which is free from condensation, electrical noise, vibration and shock.

Additionally, it is preferable to work with the Stepper Motor Controllers system in a non-static protective environment. Exposed circuitry should always be properly guarded and/or enclosed to prevent unauthorized human contact with live circuitry. No work should be performed while power is applied to the Stepper Motor Controllers. Don't plug in or unplug the connectors when power is ON. Wait for at least 5 minutes before doing inspection work on the Stepper Motor Controllers, driver and motor system after turning power OFF, because even after the power is turned off, there will still be some electrical energy remaining in the internal circuitry.

Plan the installation of the Stepper Motor Controllers, driver and motor in a system design that is free from debris, such as metal debris from cutting, drilling, tapping, and welding, or any other foreign material that could come in contact with circuitry. Failure to prevent debris from entering the Stepper Motor Controllers system can result in damage and/or shock.

The following information is intended as a general guideline for wiring of the Anaheim Automation Stepper Motor Controllers, driver and motor product lines. Be aware that when you route power and signal wiring on a machine or system, radiated noise from the nearby relays, transformers, and other electronic devices can be induced into the Stepper Motor Controllers, driver and motor, and encoder signals, input/output communications, and other sensitive low voltage signals. This can cause systems faults and communication errors. WARNING - Dangerous voltages capable of causing injury or death, may be present in the Stepper Motor Controllers system. Use extreme caution when handling, wiring, testing, and adjusting during installation, set-up and operation. Don't make extreme adjustments or changes to the Stepper Motor Controllers, driver and motor system parameters, which can cause mechanical vibration and result in failure and/or loss. Once the Stepper Motor Controllers, driver and motor are wired, do not run the Stepper Motor Controllers or driver by switching On/Off the power supply directly. Frequent power On/Off switching will cause fast aging of the internal components, which will reduce the lifetime of Stepper Motor Controllers and driver system.

Strictly comply with the following rules:
• Follow the Wiring Diagram with each Stepper Motor Controllers, motor and driver combination. NOTE: Motor manufacturers vary in their color code wiring schemes
• Route high-voltage power cables separately from low-voltage power cables.
• Segregate input power wiring and Stepper Motor Controllers, driver and motor power cables from control wiring and motor feedback cables as they leave the stepper driver and motor. Maintain this separation throughout the wire run.
• Use shielded cable for power wiring and provide a grounded 360 degree clamp termination to the enclosure wall. Allow room on the sub-panel for wire bends.
• Make all cable routes as short as possible.

NOTE: Factory made cables are recommended for use in our Stepper Motor Controllers, driver and motor systems. These cables are purchased separately, and are designed to minimize EMI. These cables are recommended over customer-built cables to optimize system performance and to provide additional safety for the Stepper Motor Controllers, driver and motor system and the user.

WARNING - To avoid the possibility of electrical shock, perform all mounting and wiring of the Stepper Motor Controllers system prior to applying power. Once power is applied, connection terminals may have voltage present.

This design concept makes selection easy, thus reducing errors and wiring time. With friendly customer service and professional application assistance, Anaheim Automation often surpasses the customer's expectations for fulfilling specific Stepper Motor Controllers, driver and motor requirements, as well as other motion control needs.

NOTE: Technical assistance regarding the Stepper Motor Controllers product line is available at no charge. This assistance is offered to help the customer in choosing Anaheim Automation products for a specific application. However, any selection, quotation, or application suggestion for Stepper Motor Controllers, or any other product, offered from Anaheim Automation's staff, its' representatives or distributors, are only to assist the customer. In all cases, determination of fitness of the Stepper Motor Controllers in a specific system application is solely the customers' responsibility. While every effort is made to offer solid advice regarding the Stepper Motor Controllers in a specific application, and to produce technical data and illustrations accurately, such advice and documents are for reference only, and subject to change without notice. Anaheim Automation is in no event responsible or liable for indirect or consequential damages resulting from the use or application of the Stepper Motor Controllers. Improper use of Stepper Motor Controllers in an application can result in personal injury or death, property damage, and/or economic loss.

The following information is intended as a general guideline for the installation and mounting of the Stepper Motor Controllers, driver and motor system. WARNING - Dangerous voltages capable of causing injury or death may be present in the Stepper Motor Controllers, driver and motor system. Use extreme caution when handling, testing, and adjusting during installation, set-up, and operation. It is very important that the wiring of the Stepper Motor Controllers, driver and motor be taken into consideration upon installation and mounting.

Subpanels installed inside the enclosure for mounting Stepper Motor Controllers, driver, motor and system components, must be a flat, rigid surface that will be free from shock, vibration, moisture, oil, vapors, or dust. Remember that the Stepper Motor Controllers, driver and motor will produce heat during work, therefore, heat dissipation should be considered in designing the system layout. Size the enclosure so as not to exceed the maximum ambient temperature rating. It is recommended that the Stepper Motor Controllers and driver be mounted in position as to provide adequate airflow. The Stepper Motor Controllers, as well as the driver and motor, should be mounted in a stable fashion, secured tightly. NOTE: There should be a minimum of 10mm between the Stepper Motor Controllers, driver and motor, and any other devices mounted in the system/electric panel or cabinet.

NOTE: In order to comply with UL and CE requirements, the Stepper Motor Controllers system must be grounded in a grounded conducive enclosure offering protection as defined in standard EN 60529 (IEC 529) to IP55 such that they are not accessible to the operator or unskilled person. As with any moving part in a system, the stepper motor should be kept out of the reach of the operator. A NEMA 4X enclosure exceeds those requirements providing protection to IP66. To improve the bond between the power rail and the subpanel, construct your subpanel out of a zinc-plated (paint-free) steel. Additionally, it is strongly recommended that the Stepper Motor Controllers (as well as other motion components) be protected against electrical noise interferences. Noise from signal wires can cause mechanical vibration and malfunctions.
