Precautions for Correct Use Operation Unit Mounting Panel Mounting and Operation Unit Mounting VAQ-4@-K • The Operation Unit can be inserted and removed. • Mounting can be performed by inserting the slit of the Operation Unit into the mounting screw of the Switch. • Mounting force: 39.2 N max. • Removing strength: 22.5 N min. VAQ-4@-L • The Operation Unit is screwed in. • Mounting can be performed by inserting the M3 screw of the Operation Unit into the flange of the Switch. • Tighten the Operation Unit to a torque of 0.20 to 0.39 N·m. 2VAQ-4@ VAQR-4@ • The Operation Unit is screwed in. • Mounting can be performed by inserting the M3 screw of the Operation Unit into the metal flange of the Switch. • Tighten the Operation Unit to a torque of 0.20 to 0.39 N·m. Operation Unit Mounting VAQ-4@-K • The Operation Unit can be inserted and removed. • Mounting can be performed by inserting the slit of the Operation Unit into the mounting screw of the Switch. • Mounting force: 39.2 N max. • Removing strength: 22.5 N min. Mounting • Tighten the nut to a torque of 0.49 to 0.78 N·m. • Do not perform wiring with power supplied to the Switch. Do not touch the terminals or other charged parts of the Switch while power is being supplied. Doing so may result in electric shock. • After wiring the Switch, ensure an appropriate insulating distance. Wiring • Twist the conductors through the terminal holes before soldering. • To perform soldering on solder terminals, use a soldering iron with a tip temperature of 250 to 350°C and complete soldering within 5 seconds. Do not exert any external force on the solder during soldering and for one minute after completing soldering. • For connection with tab terminals, gently insert receptacles for #187 tabs in the terminal push-out direction. The Switch does not have a ground terminal.
