1 The PROFIBUS–DP board cannot be used together with
the DeviceNet board at the same time.
2 The DeviceNet slave board and DeviceNet master board
must be inserted and removed by following special
procedures. There is no special procedure for inserting and
removing the DeviceNet slave board B/C and DeviceNet
master board B.
3 When the PROFIBUS–DP slave board and PROFIBUS–DP
master board are used at the same time, some restrictions

the axis control card specified.
This chapter extracts a brief description of each FA network
and an explanation of how to connect each FA network from
related manuals. In actual connection, follow the
instructions described in the relevant manual. If there is a
discrepancy in description between this connection manual
and the relevant manual, the description in the relevant
manual takes priority.
