Interface Connection

Use only the SELV (Safety Extra-Low Voltage) circuit to connect all interfaces on this product.

Cable Connections

  • Always confirm the UL 121201 or CSA C22.2 N°213 hazardous location rating of your device before installing or using it in a hazardous location.
  • To apply or remove the supply power from this product installed in a Class I, Division 2 hazardous location, you must either: A) Use a switch located outside the hazardous environment, or B) Use a switch certified for Class I, Division 1 operation inside the hazardous area.
  • Do not connect or disconnect equipment unless power has been switched off or the area is known to be non-hazardous. This applies to all connections including power, ground, serial, parallel, and network connections.
  • Never use unshielded/ungrounded cables in hazardous locations.
  • Use only non-incendive USB devices.
  • Use the USB (micro-B) interface for temporary connection only during maintenance and setup of the device.
  • Do not use the USB (micro-B) interface in hazardous locations.
Failure to follow these instructions can result in death, serious injury, or equipment damage.

Division 2 hazardous location regulations require that all cable connections be provided with adequate strain relief and positive interlock. As this product does not provide adequate strain relief for the USB connection (USB micro-B interface) on this product, use only non-incendive USB devices. Never connect or disconnect a cable while power is applied at either end of the cable. All communication cables should include a chassis ground shield. This shield should include both copper braid and aluminum foil. The D-sub style connector housing must be a metal conductive type (for example, molded zinc) and the ground shield braid must be terminated directly to the connector housing. Do not use a shield drain wire.

The outer diameter of the cable must be suited to the inner diameter of the cable connector strain relief so that a reliable degree of strain relief is maintained. Always secure the D-sub connectors to the workstation-mating connectors via the two screws located on both sides.
