Observe the following precautions to use the CLi interface safely and correctly.
Do not apply strong shocks or impacts to the ID reader section (black plastic section)
The ID reader board is protected by the ID reader cover, but might be damaged by strong shocks or impacts applied to the cover. Use caution when handling the CLi interface.
Do not apply strong shocks or impacts to the communication contact points (feeder exchange carriage)
The feeder exchange carriage has contact points for signal transfer with the surface mounter.
If these contact points are deformed or dust or debris adheres to the contact points, this may cause signal errors.
So handle with care and keep these contact points clean. A contact point protection bolt is installed next to these contact points. Never loosen and/or remove this bolt.
Conventional feeder exchange carriages can be used instead of a CLi interface feeder exchange carriage. However, the CLi interface feeder exchange carriage cannot be used instead of a conventional feeder exchange carriage.
Each feeder exchange carriage must have its own ID
Each CLi feeder exchange carriage must have its own ID that differs from all others. Software problems will occur if the same ID is used for two or more feeder exchange carriages..
NOTE: To set the ID, see the next section “Setting the ID for CLi feeder exchange carriages.
NOTE: When using a CLi interface assembled with a fixed feeder plate, set the ID to 0 (zero). The DIP switch (S1) settings are all turned off in this case.
