Mounting the tower
For all systems, the tower is provided with a tower plate mounted on the bottom. This
plate will help in stabilizing the tower on the adapter (see Fig.1a for AU4 and AU7
autoloaders or Fig.1b for AU9 autoloaders).
Make sure all thumbscrews are loose, place the tower on top of the adapter matching
the blue marks (see Fig.2).
Do not tighten the thumbscrews until the drive alignment operation is performed. (see
page 21)
Mounting the Printer
This autoloader can be used with Signature, Rimage, HP or Teac printer and uses the
same mounting system for either one of them.
Place your printer (with its own plate mounted on the bottom) on top of tower. Do not
tighten the screws until the printer alignment is made. Proceed with “Connecting
Power” and “Drive and Printer Alignment” (see page 21).
When alignment is OK, please tighten in the same time, front left and front right
thumbscrews # 3. Repeat this operation for rear left and rear right thumbscrews # 3.

into the printer. Plug each power cable into the proper power source and connect all
the other cables as shown in:
