may occur if operated with a power supply alone. See“Power Regeneration Consid-
erations” on page 31 of the Users Manual. Always keep the controller connected

chassis with the heat sink on or removed. See “Attaching the Controller Directly to a
Chassis” on page 151.

directly inside the controller’s sensitive electronics. See
Beware of Motor Runaway in Improperly Closed Loop
Wiring or polarity errors between the feedback device and motor in position or
closed loop position mode may cause the controller to runaway with no possibility
to stop it until power is turned off.
