7. CONNECTION TO FA NETWORKS
Adding a CNC to the existing line requires another crimp terminal
(1)Pull out the crimp terminal from the plug of the CNC at the last stage
of the line.
(2)Detach the existing communication cable from the crimp terminal.
(3)Attach the detached communication cable and an additional
communication cable to a new crimp terminal, and insert it to the plug.
The sequence in which this DeviceNet board is attached and removed
from the control unit is fixed.
The attachment and removal of the DeviceNet board B must also follow
To prevent the inadvertent loss of data in SRAM during this
operation, back up the data in the CNC’s SRAM to built–in
FROM (Power Mate i only) or to memory card before you
attach and remove the DeviceNet board.
1) Removing the DeviceNet connector terminal plate
The terminal plate can be removed from the DeviceNet board interface
connector with the cable still connected. Loosen the two screws shown
in the figure below, and then remove the terminal plate by pulling it

The base PCB cannot be removed unless the connector’s
terminal plate has been removed first.
