Safety Precautions

Safety Precautions

General Cautions
• At startup and during operation, be sure to monitor the functions and performance of the TM-3000 Series.
• We recommend that you take substantial safety measures to avoid any damage in the event of a problem
occurring.
• Do not attempt to open or modify the TM-3000 Series or use it in any way other than as described in the
specifications. If the TM-3000 Series is modified or used other than as described, the warranty will be voided.
• When the TM-3000 Series is used in combination with other devices, functions and performance may be
degraded, depending on the operating conditions and surrounding environment.
• Do not use the TM-3000 Series for the purpose of protecting the human body.
• Do not allow the temperature to change sharply around the TM-3000 Series, including the accessories.
Otherwise, condensation may lead to malfunction.

WARNING
Follow the safety precautions below to ensure safe operation
• Apply the correct power voltage. Failure to do so may cause fire, electric shock, or malfunction.
• Do not attempt to open or modify the unit. Doing so may cause fire or electric shock.

Handling abnormalities
Turn the power off immediately in the following cases. Using the unit in an abnormal condition could cause fire
or malfunction.
Contact the nearest KEYENCE office for repair.
• If water or a foreign object enters the unit.
• If the unit is dropped or the case is damaged.
• If abnormal smoke or odor is present.

Safety Precautions

CAUTION
Follow the safety precautions below to ensure safe operation
• Be sure to turn the power off when you plug/unplug the cable that leads to the unit and its accessories.
Failure to do so could result in damage.
• Do not turn off the power while writing to the memory during operations such as setting items. Part or all of the
set data may be lost. Refer to "Memory Structure" for details.
"Memory Structure" (page A-2)
• Do not block the vent holes on the unit. Increase of internal temperature could cause failure.
• 24 V DC (-) and analog voltage output 0V are all common via a choke coil. COM_IN1 and COM_IN2 are
common via a choke coil. Also, 24V DC (-), SG (GND) on RS-232C, and the USB connector metal shell are
each common with GND. Take care that a potential difference does not occur between the internal common
terminals due to a positive grounding environment or a potential difference between the equipment.
Otherwise, it may cause a malfunction in the TM-3000 Series or a malfunction in the connected computer or
other external device.
"Insulation status between I/O circuits" (page 8-10)
• We recommend backing up the settings on a memory card or TM-Navigator in case there are problems with
the device.

Installation environment
To use the TM-3000 Series correctly and safely, avoid installing it in the following locations. Doing so may cause
damage.
• Locations that are humid, dusty, or poorly ventilated
• Locations with a high temperature such as a place exposed to direct sunlight
• Locations where there are flammable or corrosive gases
• Locations where the unit may be directly subjected to vibration or impact
• Locations where water, oil, or chemicals may splash onto the unit
• Locations where static electricity is easily generated

Corrective action for noise


Do not install the TM-3000 Series near a power source or high-voltage cable, otherwise noise may cause the
TM-3000 Series to malfunction. Take corrective action for noise by using noise filters, laying cables separately,
and/or installing insulation on the controller and the head. Use a single core shielded cable for the analog
output.

Setting memory
This device comes equipped with FLASH memory for saving settings. This memory has an expected lifetime of
one hundred thousand writes. If the auto-zero or program No. switching functions are changed over the
communication link regularly, use the save off function and use the R1 command to measure and send results
without saving settings.
"Auto-zero Function" (page 3-12)
"Switching Program No." (page 3-14)
"Setting Save operations for Flash Memory (Save)" (page 6-5)

Safety Precautions

For Optimal Performance of the TM-3000 Series

Influence of ambient temperature


A change in the ambient temperature may cause the measurement to fluctuate. Be sure to keep it stabilized.
When the ambient temperature changes by 10°C, it takes 60 minutes for the distribution of internal temperature
to equalize.

Warming up
Wait approximately 30 minutes after the power is turned on before using the TM-3000 Series. Otherwise, the
measured value may gradually fluctuate because the circuit is not immediately stable after the power is turned on.

Operating ambient light intensity level


Do not operate this device near lighting fixtures. If the unit must be used in such a location, install a light
shielding board or similar device so that the light will not affect the measurement.

Influence of dust or dirt


The measurement may fluctuate due to dirt, dust, or fluid such as water or oil in the following cases:
• Adhesion on the protective glass plate:
Blow the dirt off with clean air. If dirt persists, wipe the glass surface gently using a soft cloth moistened
with alcohol.
• Adhesion on the surface of the measuring target:
Blow the dirt off with clean air or wipe it off.
• Intrusion of floating or sprinkled dust or dirt into the light-axis range:
In this case, take corrective action with a protective cover or air purge.

Influence of vibration
When the measuring target is vibrating, the measured value may fluctuate.
In this case, increase the number of averages to achieve a more accurate value.

Measuring target
The measured value may fluctuate if the shapes or surfaces of the measuring targets vary.
In this case, use a known target and perform appropriate correction using the scaling function.

Handling
Do not wipe with a wet cloth, benzene, or thinner. Doing so could change the color or deform the shape of the
unit.
If the unit has a large amount of dirt on it, wipe it off with a cloth moistened with a mild detergent, then wipe with
a soft dry cloth.

Effect of atmospheric motions


Slow atmospheric motions may affect the measurement and result in fluctuation of the measured value.
In such a case, take the following countermeasures.
• Enclose the measurement area with an appropriate enclosure.
• Agitate the air between the measurement point and the workpiece more strongly with a fan.

Safety Precautions

Precautions on CE Marking
This device complies with the essential requirements of EMC Directives Users must fulfill the following
conditions when the TM-3000 Series is going to be used in EU countries.
The compliant EN standards are as follows:
EMI : EN61326-1, Class A
EMS : EN61326-1

• All cables including power and other IN/OUT cables connected to the controller terminals should be kept
under 30m.
