(Refer to the table in the following explanation about Spacers.) 1 A7CN/A7CN-L End Caps End Caps are used on the Switch Units at each end and allow all the Switch Units to be securely mounted to a panel. They come in pairs, one for the left and one for the right. Spacers • Spacers are used for creating extra space or gaps between the Switch Units and have the same dimensions as the Switch Units themselves. • There are also Spacers with engraved characters or symbols that can be used for indicating units, such as time and length. (Refer to the following table.) Consult your OMRON representative for details.

Precautions for Correct Use Environment • Do not use where gases are generated (ammonia, chlorine, sulfur dioxide). • Although Switches are of nearly dust-proof construction, they are not drip-proof, therefore do not use in areas subject to water or oil exposure and do not operate with wet or oily hands. • Provide additional dust-proofing measures, such as using a dustproof cover, when using in sand-exposed areas. Handling • The A7CN cannot be connected to the A7C. • The molded components of the Switch use polyacetal resin and polycarbonate resin. It is recommended that alcohol is used to wipe off dirt and smudges from the molded components. Take care to prevent the alcohol from getting inside. Do not use thinner or other solutions which might damage the resin. • When changing settings, do not touch the operating buttons if your fingers are wet or there is oil or any other foreign substance on your fingers. • Do not drop the individual Switches. Doing so may damage the resin catch (for connecting) on the side of the Switch. • When separating Switches, use a screwdriver as shown in the figure below; disconnect them by releasing the top and bottom hooks. Be careful not to bend the hooks. Screw-mounting Models Tighten mounting screws to a torque between 0.2 to 0.24 N·m, using M2.6 screws. Use plain washers or spring washers together with the screws. Setting Numbers Locking Type • Set with the setting button by raising it. • Return the button to its original position after setting. It is then locked to prevent rotation, and the set numbers will not change accidentally. Soldering Note the following points when soldering printed circuit boards: • The terminal insertion holes on the PCB must be at least 1 mm in diameter. • Automatic Soldering Do not use dip cleaning. Doing so may result in flux penetration of the Switch interior, causing contact and rotational defects. Clean the flux as shown in Figure 1, tilting the Switch 80° or less and using a brush to apply the solvent only to the back of the board. It may also be cleaned by dipping only the back of the board into the solvent and then using a brush to clean. • Dip Soldering When applying flux solvent, the dipping time is a maximum of 2 seconds. As shown in Figure 2, avoid flooding the top surface of the printed circuit board with flux. Using a brush to apply flux further reduces the danger of flux penetration. When cleaning flux with a brush, tilt the Switch 80° or less, as shown in Figure 1, in order to prevent flux from flowing onto the switch mounting surface. Clean flux as described above under Automatic Soldering. Figure 1 • When connecting Switches, fit the mating parts together. • Do not push the (+) and (-) operating push-buttons at the same time. Do not push here Figure 2 Top surface of board Back surface of board Models with PCB Terminals Do not use excessive force in handling the Switches. In particular, take care to avoid dropping them because the terminals might bend or break. 80° or less Wipe away flux with a brush. • Using a Soldering Iron Use a 30-W soldering iron at a temperature of 350°C for a maximum of 3 seconds, and flush as described above. Do not apply force to the terminals during soldering and for 3 minutes after soldering is completed. Doing so may result in conduction or operation failure. • Ensure that soldering flux and alcohol do not penetrate into the Switch interior 5 Terms and Conditions Agreement Read and understand this catalog.
