Sharp MZ-1F11 Instruction manual

INTRODUCTION
Thank you for buying the MZ-1 E14 SHARP MZ Disk Interface.
The MZ disk interface is used together with the MZ-1 F11 MZ disk drive, used
with the SHARP personal computer. Before using the M'Z disk interface, please
read this manual carefully to assure correct operation. Refer to the "Disk
BASIC Manual" or "MZ Disk BASIC Manual (5Z008)", if you have any questions.
The contents of this manual are subject to change without notice.
If the product is defective, please contact the store where you bought it.
SHARP is not responsible for damage incurred during, or as a result of, operation.
Caution
1. Do not use this unit where rapid increases or decreases in temperature occur
or in a humid or dusty environment. This unit consists of precision parts,
such as LSI circuits, that can be affected by the operating environment. Do
not expose the unit to direct sunlight.
2. Do not bump or drop this unit.
3. Be careful not to touch the connector with your hand. Static electricity can
destroy certain parts.
4. Special attention must be paid when handling disks. Refer to the MZ Disk
Drive MZ-1 F11 instruction manual and this manual for details.
5. We recommend that you make a copy of the original master disk and use the
copy. Store the original master disk in a safe place. (Refer to the MZ disk
BASIC manual included with this unit for the procedure for copying a disk.)
Disk protection
1. Follow the instructions on the protective envelope of the disk.
2. When disks are not in use, store them vertically in their envelopes in a disk
storage box.
3. Do not place disks near magnetic materials. This may destroy programs and
data on the disk.

OVERVIEW
This interface connects an MZ-700 series personal computer and the MZ-1 F11
disk drive. The interface reads the system software (BASIC (5Z-008) etc.) with
built-in IPL ROM. (This takes about 8 seconds, not including AUTO RUN.)
Three types of files can be cataloged on a MZ disk:
1. BASIC text file (program)
2. Sequential data
3. Machine-language file (system software, etc.)
Up to 32 files can be cataloged on one side of a disk*. If only one program (file)
is cataloged per side, the maximum storage capacity is 64K bytes. As the number
of files increases, the storage capacity decreases. This is because a gap is required
between files. Sequential data files are blocked and cataloged in units of 1 K
bytes; the maximum storage capacity of a disk side is about 40K bytes.
*The number of files equals the number of programs or group data entries.

CONNECTION
To connect the MZ disk drive to an MZ-700 series computer, perform the
following.
1. Remove the data recorder, or the cover (for MZ-711 or MZ-710).
1) Turn off the power switch of the computer and unplug the AC cord.
Remove the two screws holding the data recorder from the left rear side of
the computer. Lift the data recorder out of its mounting. (Figure 1)
2) Remove the connector (CN1) between the data recorder and the MZ-700
series computer. (Figure 1 )

2. Jnstall the MZ·1 F11
1) Remove the bottom plate of the MZ·1 F11 as follows:
(1) Unscrew the screws holding the bottom plate at the rear side.
(2) Remove the bottom plate in the direction indicated by the arrow.

2) Connect CN2 (from the bottom of MZ-1 F11) to the conneC1Dt ·of the
computer main unit that was originally connected to the data recorder.
(Figure 3)
3) Mount the MZ-1 F11 where the data recorder was originally, using the
screws that held the data recorder in place. (Figure 3)

3. Connecting the MZ-1E14 and the MZ-1F11 (Figure 4)
1) Remove the cover for the external output terminal (I/O BUS) at the back
of the computer main unit by unscrewing the two screws for mounting the
MZ-1 F11.
(These two screws will be used to fix this unit to the computer.)
2) Plug CNS of the MZ-1 E14 into the external output terminal at the back
of the computer and secure it with the two screws you just removed.
3) Insert CN3 at the rear of the MZ-1F11 into CN4 of the MZ-1E14 and
secure the connection using the screws originally securing CN3.
This completes connection of the MZ-1F11, the MZ-1E14 and the computer.

4. Connecting the Data Recorder (Figure 4)
The removed data recorder can be connected as an external unit to the
computer as follows:
1) Remove the cover for CN6 from the rear of the MZ-1 F11, then insert CN1
from the bottom of the data recorder into CN6.
2) Use the extension cable to be connected to CN1 and CN6, if you prefer
more distance between the data recorder and the computer main unit.
This step completes the procedure. Switch on the power, and check operation.
