Safety Summary
Safety Depends On You
The following general safety precautions must be observed during all phases of operation, service, and
repair of this equipment. Failure to comply with these precautions or with specific warnings elsewhere in
this manual violates safety standards of design, manufacture, and intended use of the equipment.
Motorola, Inc. assumes no liability for the customer's failure to comply with these requirements.
The safety precautions listed below represent warnings of certain dangers of which Motorola is aware. You,
as the user of the product, should follow these warnings and all other safety precautions necessary for the
safe operation of the equipment in your operating environment.
Ground the Instrument.
To minimize shock hazard, the equipment chassis and enclosure must be connected to an electrical ground.
Both AC and DC versions of this equipment require a three-conductor power cable. A supplementary
chassis ground is also provided. AC power cables must be plugged into an approved three-contact
electrical outlet. The power jack and mating plug of the power cable must meet International
Electrotechnical Commission (IEC) safety standards.
Do Not Operate in an Explosive Atmosphere.
Do not operate the equipment in the presence of flammable gases or fumes. Operation of any electrical
equipment in such an environment constitutes a definite safety hazard.
Keep Away From Live Circuits.
Operating personnel must not remove equipment covers. Only Factory Authorized Service Personnel or
other qualified maintenance personnel may remove equipment covers for internal subassembly or
component replacement or any internal adjustment. Do not replace components with power cable
connected. Under certain conditions, dangerous voltages may exist even with the power cable removed. To
avoid injuries, always disconnect power and discharge circuits before touching them.
Do Not Service or Adjust Alone.
Do not attempt internal service or adjustment unless another person capable of rendering first aid and
resuscitation is present.
Use Caution When Exposing or Handling the CRT.
Breakage of the Cathode-Ray Tube (CRT) causes a high-velocity scattering of glass fragments (implosion).
To prevent CRT implosion, avoid rough handling or jarring of the equipment. Handling of the CRT should
be done only by qualified maintenance personnel using approved safety mask and gloves.
Do Not Substitute Parts or Modify Equipment.
Because of the danger of introducing additional hazards, do not install substitute parts or perform any
unauthorized modification of the equipment. Contact your local Motorola representative for service and
repair to ensure that safety features are maintained.

About the XR Series Systems
The XR Series Systems are based on the VMEbus backplane
architecture and the Modular Chassis family of enclosures, power
supplies, and SCSI storage subsystems.
❏
Modular Implementation
The XR family includes 3-slot, dual 9-slot, 12-slot, and 20-slot
systems. Each system is designed as a set of modular building
blocks that can be readily adapted and recombined to meet
the needs of technical, industrial, and telecommunications
applications.
The dual 9-slot, 12-slot, and 20-slot systems offer freestanding
pedestal, frame or rack mount options. The 3-slot system is
designed for either frame or rack mount options.
This building-block approach is designed to provide OEMs
and system integrators with the maximum amount of
packaging flexibility.
❏
Simplified Design
The design minimizes screws, wires, and cables necessary for
building a system while maximizing maintainability and
reliability for the end user. It removes the necessity for
adapter cards and cables between the transition modules and
the backplane.
❏
Resilient Implementation
The XR family of systems is designed to comply with
telecommunications industry requirements. The dual 9-slot
system offers the ability to create redundant systems in a
single chassis.

3-Slot
❏
Dual 9-Slot
❏
12-Slot
❏
20-Slot
3-Slot System
The Model XR9103 3-slot system (see Figure 2-1 on page 2-2) has a
front-loading 3-slot VME card cage with a rear-loading transition
card cage. The VME backplane accepts standard 6U 32-bit VME
modules from the front, and MVME700 series plug-in transition
modules from the rear. The system accommodates up to two 31/2inch, half-height, fixed- or removable-media drives. The drives
plug into the backplane above the VMEmodule connection area. A
sheet-metal insert separates them from the modules in the VME
card cage.
The system is available with either an AC or a DC power supply.
A DC-powered fan provides forced-air cooling for the
VMEmodules, drives, and power supply. Convection cooling is
used for the rear-mounted transition modules. Cooling air for the
VME card cage is drawn in at the front of the fan module, forced
past the VMEmodules, drives, and power supply, and vented
through the right rear panel of the system.

Dual 9-slot System
The Model XR9209 dual 9-slot system (see Figure 2-2 on page 2-4)
is designed for telecom applications requiring dual, independent 9slot VME systems with up to 34GB of disk storage capacity per
system. The Model XR9109 is configured with one 9-slot VME
system, but it may be upgraded to a dual XR9209 configuration.
A Model XR9109 or XR9209 system typically uses a VME drive
module for the initial 3 1/2-inch disk and tape. Additional drives
are added using a SCSI Device Storage Module (see Chapter 4). Up
to four Storage Modules can be added to each system. Each Storage
Module contains up to four half-height drive bays. Two of these
bays can contain removable media devices. Each system can
support up to 18 SCSI drives.
The XR Series offers a -48±10% (-36 to -72 with the MC1000KDC700A—see Chapter 7) VDC power module for telecom exchange
office applications as well as a 90 to 264 VAC autoranging power

Front Bezel Removal
The front bezel is a requirement for complete RFI shielding. The
bezel is latched on both sides. Screwdriver-operated locks at the
upper corners prevent the latches from being arbitrarily
disengaged. The latches are to be opened by trained service
personnel only.
The 9U bezels for the dual 9-, 12-, and 20-slot card cage and OEM
equipment enclosure are mounted on ball studs at the bottom and
latched at the top; the 3U bezels used elsewhere are simply latched.
Refer to Figure 2-5 on page 2-13 and Figure 2-6 on page 2-14 while
performing this procedure.
1. Unlock the bezel latches by rotating the locks a quarter-turn
inward from the “locked” icon to the “unlocked” icon with a
Phillips screwdriver (clockwise on the left side,
counterclockwise on the right).
!
Caution
To avoid damaging the keyswitch assembly when you
remove card cage bezels, make sure that the key is
removed before you unlatch the bezel.
2. Unlatch the bezel from the enclosure by pressing the latch
buttons at either side of the bezel and pulling straight out
until the bezel latches are clear of the chassis. (If it is a 3U
bezel, removal is complete at this point.)
3. (For 9U bezels): Release the bottom of the bezel from the ball
studs by firmly grasping the lower edge and pulling straight
up.

Chassis Overview
The Extended Chassis is based on the Original Chassis design. It
uses the same backplane, power supplies, and fan trays. The main
differences are the dimensions and the bezels.
The front VME card cage has been extended outwards
approximately 2 inches (approx. 5 cm) to accomodate the Extended
Injector/Ejector (VME64) handles on the VMEmodules.
The front bezel design was changed from a rounded, plastic bezel
to a flat, metal bezel to accomodate embedding these systems in
cabinets and to facilitate customization efforts (such as custom
colors, logos, etc.).
The Extended Chassis also contains the following features:
❏
Stiffened backplane support for multi-slot VME single board
computers (such as 2-slot CPUs plus 2-slot PMCspan).
❏
Rails for the large VME64 handles to facilitate insertion and
extraction of multi-slot VME single board computer "bricks".
❏
New card cage with new guides for the new handle
keying/locking mechanism.
❏
The front panels contain louvers for airflow, and accomodate
replaceable air filters, locking mechanisms, handles to
facilitate removal and attachment, and holes for the key
switch(es) and LED indicators.
The Extended Chassis is available in either a dual 9-slot or a 20-slot
configuration.

4SCSI Device Storage Module
4
This chapter provides a brief overview of the SCSI Device Storage
module. For more information about this device, please refer to the
XR900 Series Mass Storage Subsystem User’s Manual (available
through your local Motorola sales representative).
Overview
The SCSI Device Storage Module has room for up to four SCSI
devices. It contains four half-height peripheral bays. Two of the
bays accommodate 3 1/2-inch hard disk drives, and the other two
bays accommodate either 3 1/2-inch hard disk drives or 5 1/4-inch
removable media devices.
Backplanes
The SCSI Device Storage Module has two backplane options:
differential and single-ended. The differential backplane only
supports differential SCSI drives, and the single-ended backplane
only supports single-ended SCSI drives.
The backplane provides support for the four SCSI drives, all drive
power connections, and the SCSI signal lines for the installed
devices.
Chassis Options
The SCSI Device Storage Module has two chassis options: Original
and Extended. The Original Chassis option is compatible with and
installs on the Original style of XR chassis. The Extended Chassis
option is compatible with and installs on the Extended style of XR
chassis. Both chassis options support the differential and singleended backplanes.
4-1
SCSI Device Storage Module
Power Supply
The power is supplied to the SCSI Device Storage Module in one of
three ways:
4
❏
System Power
❏
AC Power Supply Module
❏
DC Power Supply Module
System power is provided through an optional connector on the
bottom of the storage module (see Figure 4-4 on page 4-14). It plugs
into a receiver on the top of the XR system, and power is supplied
directly from the system’s backplane.
DC power to the module’s drives and fan assembly can also come
from a UL/CSA/VDE-approved 100W autoranging power supply
module. Power supply modules are available in both -48Vdc- and
115/230Vac-compatible versions, each providing +5Vdc and
+12Vdc to the enclosure. The power supply module is installed next
to the drives and is cooled by the air drawn through the module
chassis. Input power is provided to the power supply by the AC
power cord or DC wire assembly through the rear of the chassis.
The power supply distributes the power to the mass storage drives
through the backplane.
Drive Carriers
Injection-molded plastic cradles hold the drive and an adapter
board assembly. The cradle slides in from the front of the SCSI
Device Storage Module, plugs into the backplane and latches into
place. Two types of drive carrier assemblies are used.
The bottom device mounting holes are used for 5 1/4-inch
removable devices. A single high bezel filler panel is removed
when this assembly is installed. The assembly for 3 1/2- inch nonremovable media devices fits in either side of the SCSI enclosure.
SCSI addresses are selectable via a rotary switch soldered to the
adapter board.
4-2
Overview
Environmental Monitoring
The SCSI Device Storage Module is equipped with an
environmental monitoring function. This functions monitors the
internal temperature of the module.
Two overtemperature levels are used by this function:
4
❏
When the first overtemperature level is reached, an
Overtemperature LED (located next to the SCSI connectors
on the back panel of the module) turns on. At that point,
Motorola-supported SCSI devices are approaching their
upper temperature limits, but are not in danger of immediate
damage. At this point, corrective action, such as lowering the
ambient temperature or removing blockages to the airflow,
can reverse the condition and allow normal operations to
continue. If the overtemperature condition is due to a failed
fan, the system should be shut down and the failed unit
replaced.
❏
When the second overtemperature level is reached, the SCSI
Device Storage Module is shut down. To recover from this,
the system should be shut down, corrective action taken
(decrease ambient temperature, remove any airflow
blockages, or replace failed units), and the system restarted.
After restarting the system, test the drive units in the storage
module to verify that they were not damaged by the
overtemperature condition.
An RJ-45 connector/cable links the module’s environmental
monitoring function with the system’s environmental monitoring
functions. If the system is equipped with an optional alarm board,
audible and remote environmental alarm reporting for both the
system and the SCSI Device Storage Module is possible.

5Site Preparation and Installation

Setting up the proper working environment for computer
equipment can greatly increase its reliability and utility. This next
section provides guidelines for site preparation before installation
of the computer.
Placement Recommendations
To ensure that the computer runs at its maximum efficiency, it is
important that it is positioned correctly. A computer is an
environment-sensitive piece of equipment, so it is crucial to its
performance to install it in the best place possible.
The following are a few guidelines that should be followed when
deciding where to place the computer chassis.
❏
The system is in a stable area, free of excess movement and
jarring.
❏
The system is located where it can be easily serviced.
❏
The system is installed safely; cables and cords are out of the
way.
❏
The set-up is comfortable for users.
❏
There is room for proper air flow for cooling.
❏
The area is free of excess heat, dust, smoke, and Electro-Static
Discharge (ESD).
5-1
Site Preparation and Installation
Weight Distribution
To avoid hazards arising from uneven mechanical loading of the
rack, plan the installation so that (within the limitations of
equipment and cabling) the weight of the equipment is evenly
distributed across the width of the rack. The heaviest units should
be located towards the bottom.
5
Power Requirements
The computer system should be connected to branch circuits
specifically and totally dedicated for the computer system. Do not
plug other electrical items (that are not part of the entire computer
system) into an outlet that is connected to the circuit breaker
serving the computer. Making the computer share a circuit with
other electrical equipment is an invitation to losing data if the
circuit is overloaded and the breaker is tripped. The computer is
equipped with a separate power cord and should be placed within
six feet of the electric receptacle.
For protection of data in the computer, disable all other outlets not
used by the computer that are on the same branch circuit. It is
suggested that adhesive labels be placed over outlets in order to
prevent their use.
Guidelines for Using Branch Circuits
All branch circuits for the computer system must come from the
same circuit breaker panel. Failure to do this can cause power to
flow in the data cables interconnecting various devices of the
system.
Branch circuits must not be overloaded. Check the manual and/or
rating plate of all devices and verify that the sum of the ampere
ratings do not exceed two-thirds of the branch rating.
5-2
Power Requirements
Laser printers and some other devices cause periodic short
duration heavy loads that are not reflected in their ampere ratings.
Connect laser printers on a separate branch circuit from the
computer enclosure.
Using power strips with separate circuit breakers does not add
additional protection and may cause unwanted power
interruption. Ensure that all power strips or extension cords used
are not too long and are at least #16 (the best choice is #14 AWG or
larger) with ground.
The use of surge/transient suppressors is not recommended
without careful and expert power system analysis. Most
surge/transient suppressors can cause system damage from
transients if used in the typical manner.
All branch circuits must have a “third wire” type ground for the
branch circuit that only goes to the circuit breaker panel. Conduit
ground is unacceptable for any portion of the system. It is better if
“orange” insulated ground outlets are used for the computer
system where conduit is present. Do not connect the ground wire to
the conduit or the outlet box when using insulated ground outlets.
Blinking lights or fluctuating intensity from lighting at the
computer site are an indication of poor power. This may be a cause
of possible system hang ups. Investigate the electrical installation to
ensure proper system operation.
Power Circuit Protection
Ideally, the power circuit should be protected by an electrical line
filter that prevents voltage spikes caused by unusual outside forces
from reaching the computer. The most desirable means is to use a
“no-break” UPS (uninterruptible power supply) to furnish power
to your system's processor enclosure. A no-break (also known as
“online”) UPS makes the central processor less susceptible to the
voltage fluctuations, spikes, and frequency aberrations inherent in
most power systems.
5-3
5
Site Preparation and Installation
A second type of UPS is called a “standby” UPS, or SPS. This device
switches to a battery system if power fails. SPS units usually lack
protective circuitry and power conditioning capability; as a result,
they are more susceptible to input power fluctuations than nobreak/online UPS units. If you opt for an SPS, be sure to get one
that has a switchover time of 5 milliseconds or less. Some SPS units
provide enough power to shut the system down in the event of a
power failure; others furnish enough for the system to continue
operating for a specified period of time during the power failure.
5
The UPS or SPS must have receptacles to furnish power to both the
processor enclosure and the console terminal.
Circuit Breakers and Receptacles
Circuit breakers furnishing power to any portion of the system
must be of the correct size to protect the equipment. Receptacles
must be wired according to the three-wire power distribution
scheme (line, neutral, and ground).
All power receptacles servicing any equipment that is directly
cable-connected to the system (modem/terminal server and fiber
optic connections excluded) must have a single, common
grounding point. The ground wire must be at true ground potential
with a resistance (measured at the power panel bus) of five ohms or
less between the bus bar and earth. The ground wire must be of the
“third wire” type, not conduit ground.
Electro-Static Discharge
Motorola computer systems are designed to withstand up to 5 kV1
(Kilovolts) of ESD with no observable effect, up to 12 kV without
system interference, and up to 24 kV without damage to the
equipment.
1. Several times the ESD potential that you are likely to accumulate by walking across a carpeted floor.
5-4
Power Requirements
The system is designed to operate in an area with 10% to 80% noncondensing relative humidity. A dry area (below 20% relative
humidity) is conducive to ESD problems.

Site Preparation and Installation
Installation Options
A system can be either rack-mounted or set up in a floor-standing
pedestal configuration (dual 9-, 12-, and 20-slot, Original Chassis
style only). The pedestal configuration requires base and crown
components as well as bezels and side panels. The chassis
components interconnect vertically with a latching mechanism.
5
Pedestal Installation
The pedestal configuration requires base and cap components as
well as bezels and side panels. It is available for the Dual 9-, 12-, and
20-slot Original Chassis only.

Rack System Installation
The rack system can be installed in any standard 19-inch or 23-inch
rack. The advantage of a rack system is better utilization of floor
space. Figure 5-4 on page 5-12 shows a representative front view of
the system in a rack configuration
The system can be installed without modification in a standard 19inch RETMA (or equivalent) equipment rack. With minor
modifications, it can also be installed on a 19-inch mast (as in
telecommunications installations), or in a 23-inch rack or mast. The
procedure is the same in all cases.
5
1. Remove the blank bezel from the desired rack mounting
location, if a bezel is installed.
2. Remove the bezel from the system.
3. Determine the width of the rack or mast and, if necessary,
attach a pair of mounting flanges (supplied in kit form) to
each side of the chassis in the appropriate location. Flanges
for the right and left sides are identical.
For 19-inch rack mounting, use the existing flanges formed in
the sheet metal at the forward corners of the chassis.
For a 19-inch mast installation, mount a set of flanges at the
center, narrow side out.
For a 23-inch rack or mast installation, mount the flanges
wide side out (at the forward corners for a rack, at the center
for a mast).
4. Remove the side and back panels of the rack as necessary to
gain access to the interior for chassis installation.

Cabling
Cabling
After you have completed the rack installation or otherwise
situated the system and associated equipment, proceed as follows
to cable the hardware together.
Note
All rack cabling should be contained within the rack
bay. Cabling to external peripheral equipment should
be routed through the rear panel of the rack.
5
Cables
The system console, printers, and some other peripherals use
EIA-232-D cables. Although EIA-232-D shielded cables can be
successfully used over extended distances, reliable communication
over cables longer than 50 feet depends on the absence of electrical
noise, correct ground potentials at termination points, and other
variables. For this reason, error-free communication cannot be
guaranteed on EIA-232-D cables longer than 50 feet. An alternative
solution to extending cables is to use “short-haul” modems for
devices further than 50 feet from the computer processor.
Two types of cables are commonly found in local area networks:
standard and thin. Some installations may have fiber optic or
twisted pair cables. Standard cabling, the thicker and more
insulated of the two, generally serves as the backbone of the
network. Thinnet cabling usually links individual devices, such as
terminals, to the network, but can be used as the main cabling
device as well.
The standard type of Ethernet cable has the following
characteristics:
❏
A maximum length of 1640 feet (500 m). Shorter segments of
384 feet (117 m), 230 feet (70 m), and 77 feet (23 m) are also
available.
5-13
Site Preparation and Installation
❏
Provision for up to 100 transceivers (depending on cable
length), via annular rings spaced at intervals of 2.5 m
(approximately eight feet) along the cable.
❏
Termination at both ends by N-series 50-ohm terminators.
The network must have a single ground connection.
The thinnet type of Ethernet cable has the following characteristics:
5
❏
A maximum length of 167 m (547 feet)
❏
Provision for up to 30 transceivers, regardless of cable length.
Transceivers can be spaced at any desired interval.
❏
Termination at both ends by BNC 50-ohm terminators. As
with standard cabling, the network must have a single
ground connection.
Thinnet cable is less costly than standard Ethernet cable, and is
easier to install due to its greater flexibility. Computing devices that
are equipped with built-in transceivers can be coupled to the
network without external transceivers and transceiver cabling if the
LAN backbone is formed by thinnet rather than standard cable.
Standard cable is heavily insulated and shielded against
electromagnetic interference.
To achieve maximum reliability, use the following cautions when
planning the installation of cables.
5-14
❏
Do not run signal cables parallel to AC power cables if they
are within four inches of each other.
❏
Do not install signal cables close to electric motors, power line
regulators, relays, or power supplies.
❏
Avoid laying signal cables close to air conditioners, copy
machines, water coolers, and other similar equipment that
generates power line “noise.”
❏
Do not run signal cables near equipment that generates radio
frequency interference (for example, radio transmitters).
Cabling
❏
Do not lay signal cables outside buildings without protection
from lightning and weather.
❏
Use the shortest possible cable between the processor unit
and peripherals.
❏
To ensure that maximum protection for the equipment and
operators is achieved, check the protective grounds at each
power outlet for adequacy.
5
!
Caution
To avoid the possibility of damage to equipment or
components during cabling, unplug all other devices in
the system before you begin with the installation of any
additional units.
Power Cords
Motorola system enclosures (except for the equipment racks that
house rack-mounted systems) have separable power cords
pluggable at both the wall socket and the equipment. System
enclosures should be placed within six feet of their electric
receptacles. The use of extension cords is strongly discouraged.
Motorola computers configured for 115 Vac United States domestic
use are shipped with a three-prong NEMA type 5-15P (or, in the
case of the 20-slot enclosure, NEMA type 5-20P) plug on the power
cable. For 230 Vac domestic applications, the 20-slot enclosure
receives a NEMA type 6-15P plug; rack systems are equipped with
a NEMA L6-30P plug.
ElectroMagnetic Compatibility Guidelines
To ensure continued ElectroMagnetic Compatibility (EMC)
compliance, the following guidelines must be adhered to:
❏
Use well-shielded high quality cable to interface all active
ports on the device.
5-15
Site Preparation and Installation
5
❏
Firmly secure all interface cable connectors by tightening all
associated hardware.
❏
Install and lock the front bezel as described in the Front Bezel
Removal and Replacement section of Chapter 2.
❏
Do not install or attach any additional cables to the front
facing circuit cards.

Power Cables (AC system)
1. Plug the socket end of the system’s power cord into the AC
power inlet located on the lower back panel.
2. If you intend to use a console terminal, plug the socket end of
the console terminal’s power cord into the AC power inlet on
the back of the terminal.
3. Attach power cords to all other associated equipment.
4. Plug the power cords into appropriate electrical outlets (if
any of the equipment is rack-mounted, the rack may be
equipped with power distribution modules).
Power Cables (DC system)
1. Power down the –24/–48Vdc supply.
!
Caution
5-20
Use a –24/–48Vdc supply source that is electrically
isolated from the main DC source. The –24/–48Vdc
source is to be reliably connected to ground.
Cabling
2. Guide the free end of a DC power cable, with about 1/2 inch of
insulation stripped from the wires, to the terminal block
supplied with the DC system. Clamp the DC leads (positive,
negative, and ground) to the terminal block.
!
Caution
The connection to DC power consists of three wire leads
(no larger than #12 AWG, fine strand or solid, but
capable of handling at least 10 Amps of current). To
avoid grounds or shorts, exercise care when securing
the wires to the connector.
Note
5
For additional protection if the conditions of the site
call for it, you may wish to also use the chassis ground
point on the rear wall of the unit (the GND connection
with a 1/4 x 20 thread located in the lower right corner
of the back panel, as viewed from the rear). This
ground point is to be connected to the equipment rack
or other reliable path to ground.

7. Plug the power cord of the console terminal (and any other
AC equipment) into an electrical outlet.
8. Turn the DC power on.
Power Supply Limit Considerations
The system can be equipped with a power supply module
accepting either –24/–48Vdc or 115/230Vac inputs. The +5Vdc
output is rated at 20A. The +12Vdc output is rated at 5A. The –
12Vdc output is rated at 1A.
!
Caution
The system integrator must ensure that the installed
peripheral devices do not exceed the power supply
rating.
The current rating for the individual outputs must not be exceeded,
and the total power supply output power must not exceed 170W.
When calculating the 5Vdc current, remember to include the
backplane termination resistors.

This chapter describes the controls, indicators, and operating
procedures for the system chassis. Only those controls and
indicators that are part of the base system (i.e. the chassis) are
described here; many of the individual VMEmodules used in the
system are equipped with their own controls and indicators. For
information about the controls and indicators on the individual
VMEmodules, refer to the user’s manual for that module (see
Related Documentation in Chapter 1).
Controls and Indicators
The system is equipped with a key switch (two key switches in the
case of a dual 9-slot system) and three indicator lights to control and
monitor power to the card cage and fan. These controls, their
placement, and their functions are listed in the tables below.

3-Slot Indicators
Indicators to display the status of input power, operating voltages,
and interior temperatures are located on the front panel of the
power supply module.
❏
The Input Power LED ( ) indicates the presence of input
power to the power supply. Under normal conditions, the
Input Power LED is illuminated. If the LED is off, and input
power is applied, the power supply may be defective or the
input power may be too low.
❏
The System Power Status LED ( ) monitors the operating
voltages at the chassis backplane. Under normal conditions,
the LED is illuminated. If the LED is off, the power supply
may be defective or the system power has strayed from the
acceptable range.
❏
The Overtemperature LED ( ) indicates the presence of
excessive operating temperatures within the power supply,
the card cage (if an optional backplane thermal sensor is
installed), or the SCSI peripheral expansion enclosure (if
installed).
Dual 9-, 12-, and 20-slot Indicators
Several indicators to display the status of input power, operating
voltages, and interior temperatures are located on the front panel of
the card cage and power supply.
❏

presence of -48Vdc or 115/230Vac input power (depending
on the type of power supply installed) at the power supply
inputs.
To verify that the +5Vdc/+12Vdc/-12Vdc operating voltages
are present when the power supply bezel is in place, check
the status LEDs on the front panel of the processor board. If
the input power LED is off with input power applied, the
power supply is defective.

❏
The overtemperature LED (on the front of the bezel -designated with a thermometer symbol) indicates the
presence of excessive operating temperatures within the
power supply, the card cage (if an optional backplane
thermal sensor is installed), or the SCSI device storage
module (if installed).
Power On/Off Procedures
The following procedures are the recommended methods for
powering-on and -off the XR Chassis.
Recommended Power-On Procedure
1. Verify that all system modules, and associated data/control
cabling are properly configured and installed. If the system is
rack-mounted, also check that all required external cabling
(to non-rack-mounted equipment) is correctly installed.
!
Caution
6-4
The integrator is responsible for ensuring that current
loads to not exceed the power supply's limits. The
maximum current loads per VME slot should not exceed
Power On/Off Procedures
the the limits documented in the IEE Standard for a
Versitile Backplane Bus: VME Bus. The maximum current
loads per pin for transition modules is the same as for
VME modules. Note that thermal considerations are
also necessary when integrating high power modules.
The individual thermal profile of modules requires the
integrator to understand the particular requirements of
the modules and to test where there is any question.
The maximum current load on the system depends
upon the configuration of the system and can be
determined from the following table:

Ensure that proper software shutdown procedures
have been followed before you continue.
1. Insert the key and turn the power switch to the
position
(Standby, or “off”). The power supply cycles down, but the
power status LED on the power supply remains on,
indicating that primary power is still present.
2. If the system incorporates a dual 9-slot chassis, repeat step 1
for System B.
3. If the chassis is to be powered down for a long time or will be
left unattended, remove the key to prevent tampering with
the power switch.
Emergency Power Removal
In the event of an emergency:
❏
For an AC powered system, remove the power cable from the
rear of the enclosure.
❏
For a DC powered system, trip the circuit breaker for the
wires supplying DC power to the system (there are no useraccessible circuit breakers on the system).
Chassis Cooling
3-Slot Chassis
It is essential that all of the equipment used in the rack system be
properly cooled. The system is designed for an input air
temperature below 50° C (122° F). The system’s DC-powered fan
provides forced-air cooling for the power supply module as well as
6-7
6
Chassis Operations
the VMEmodules and the drives in the VME card cage. Cooling air
is drawn in at the front of the fan module, forced past the
VMEmodules, drives, and power supply, and vented through the
right rear panel of the chassis.
The internal fan provides airflow sufficient for most installations,
but some high-density, high-power VMEmodules may require
additional cooling. When integrating VMEmodules that are known
to run hot, testing is advisable to confirm that these modules are
properly cooled.
Note also that for tape storage media, a maximum safe temperature
of 50° C (122° F) is specified. Since the operating temperatures
within the chassis will always be greater than the air inlet
temperature, avoid using tapes if the inlet temperature exceeds
40° C (104° F).
6
To ensure adequate cooling:
❏
The air space behind the rack must not be blocked, and the
fan inlet screens must be clean.
❏
The air inlet temperature must not exceed 50° C/122° F (or
40° C/104° F if storage tapes are used). When the system is
installed in a rack with other chassis, be sure that each unit in
the rack is provided with its own supply of cooling air. Do not
use air heated by one chassis to “cool” another chassis.
❏
The side and back panels of the rack must be in place.
❏
All unused VMEmodule slots must be covered.
❏
All front bezels must be in place.
❏
All unoccupied rack mount locations must be covered with
blank bezels.
The system is designed for use in a relatively clean (office or lab)
environment. To assure reliable operation in an industrial
environment, you may need to provide protection against airborne
particles and other contaminants, especially for the disk or tape
drives and their associated media.
6-8
Chassis Cooling
Dual 9-, 12-, and 20-slot Chassis
The VME card cage is cooled by a front plug-in fan module
providing front to rear airflow. Dual fan modules are available for
the dual 9-slot configuration. The individual fan modules are
replaceable without interrupting power to the companion system.
The system is designed for an input air temperature below 50° C
(122° F). Three DC-powered fans (four fans in the dual 9-slot
chassis) provide forced-air cooling for the VMEmodules and mass
storage drives in the VME card cage. Power supply modules have
a separate set of fans; convection cooling is used for the rearmounted transition modules. For the VME card cage, the direction
of airflow is in at the front of the fan tray, up past the VMEmodules
and mass storage drives, and out the upper back of the chassis. For
the power supplies, cooling air is drawn in the front of each module
and vented out through the lower back panel of the chassis.

No forced-air cooling is provided for the rear-mounted modules.
The rear-mounted modules are typically transition boards with few
active components, and cooling is generally not required.

Chassis Operations
Environmental Monitoring
An environmental monitoring function to track enclosure
temperatures and operating voltages is incorporated into the
chassis design. The environmental monitor provides:
❏
Overtemperature Reporting -- the temperature in the chassis,
power supply, or optional SCSI Device Storage Module
exceeds maximum safe termperature (without regard to
which one of the actual sensors causes the activation).
❏
Power Supply Defective Reporting -- the AC or DC input
voltages to the power supply stray out of range.
6
Assemblies Monitored
In the CPU enclosure, power supply outputs and temperatures are
always monitored.
Note
In the 3-slot chassis, enclosure temperature is
monitored through the power supply, since the air is
drawn from the enclosure, through the power supply,
and out of the chassis.
In the dual 9-, 12-, and 20-slot chassis, enclosure
temperature is monitored through sensors mounted on
the backplane.
The SCSI peripheral expansion enclosure has no power supply
monitoring, but is equipped with a backplane temperature sensor.
As long as the RJ45 cabling is installed, SCSI enclosure
temperatures are monitored along with the power supply
voltages/temperatures in the CPU enclosure.
6-12
Environmental Monitoring
Temperature Monitoring Function
The overtemperature LED on the front panel of the system indicates
the presence of excessive operating temperatures within one or
more of the following subassemblies:
❏
The power supply
❏
The card cage
❏
The standalone SCSI peripheral expansion enclosure (if
installed)
The SCSI enclosure also drives an overtemperature LED of its own
on the back panel.
Power Supply and Card Cage
Two temperature thresholds exist in a system power supply. In the
event of a heat buildup beyond the lower threshold within a
monitored power supply, thermal protection circuitry illuminates
the overtemperature LED on the front panel of the system.
Note
If the SCSI peripheral expansion enclosure is the
location of the overtemperature condition, its
overtemperature LED also illuminates.
If temperatures climb further, beyond the higher threshold of
maximum safe ratings, an ACFAIL signal is placed on the VMEbus
and the affected power supply is shut down automatically.
At the lower threshold, Motorola-supported devices and most
other devices in the system enclosure are approaching their upper
temperature limits but are not in danger of immediate damage.
In other parts of the system, temperature sensors provide only the
lower threshold warning. As with power supplies, a heat buildup
beyond the first threshold within a monitored subassembly
illuminates the warning LED on the front of the chassis. If
temperatures climb further, however, no power shutdown occurs.
6-13
6
Chassis Operations
Several conditions can trigger the alarm:
❏
A failed fan in a warm environment
❏
Blocked airflow in or out of the enclosure
❏
An ambient temperature near the specified limits of the
enclosure (50˚ C/122˚ F)
The overtemperature LED turns off when the cooling problem is
corrected if the correction is made before the power supply sensor
warms another 5˚ F to system shutdown. Powering down to correct
a problem may not be necessary, because many failures are caused
by nothing more than inadvertent blockages of the airflow. Prompt
removal of a blockage allows recovery without a shutdown of
system power. In general, power should not be removed from the
system until a normal system shutdown is completed.
6
SCSI Enclosure
The power supply in the SCSI peripheral expansion enclosure is
monitored in the same way as that of the main chassis. A heat
buildup beyond the first threshold within a monitored SCSI
enclosure illuminates the warning LED.
If temperatures climb further, however, no power shutdown
occurs.
Voltage Monitoring Function
Overvoltage protection circuitry monitors the power supply inputs
and outputs. If the power inputs of a monitored power supply go
out of range, or if the +5Vdc output strays out of tolerance and
remains so, the power supply of the affected chassis is shut down
automatically.
The voltage monitoring function is confined to the system itself; it
does not extend to the SCSI Device Storage Module.

Environmental Monitoring
Overtemperature Warning LED
The system thermal warning LED, designated with a thermometer
symbol, can be activated by:
❏
The power supply’s first threshold
❏
High temperature alert from the SCSI peripheral expansion
enclosure.
If disk subsystem is present, signal is available through the
cable from the enclosure’s RJ-45 connector to the back of
control board.
❏

High temperature on the backplane thermal sensors
Backplane sensors (dual 9-, 12-, and 20-slot chassis) are
optional and may not be installed. Backplane sensors are
resistor programmed with plug-in resistors, and therefore the
level could be changed by changing the resistor components.
The sole result of a thermal alarm is that the LED lights.
An optional alarm board is available for use in conjunction with the
environmental monitoring system. The alarm board amplifies
signals from the environmental monitor to make them usable as
inputs to the proprietary alarm systems found at some customer
installations.
Recovery
The surest way to reset the power distribution system after a
shutdown triggered by the environmental monitor is to cycle the
primary power (remove and reconnect the -48Vdc or 115/230Vac
input power).
In systems with a redundant power supply, setting the key switch
to STANDBY and back to RUN after a thermal or undervoltage failure
restarts the power supply, but requires that the operating system
first be shut down.

Power Supplies
The power supply is mounted in a module next to the card cage. If
the power supply fails, the module is replaced as a unit. The power
supply receives –24/–48Vdc or 115/230Vac input power directly
through the back panel of the system. The power supply plugs into
a backplane connector, which applies operating voltages from the
power supply to the VME card cage, the cooling fan, and (if
installed) the drive modules.

Output Isolation
There is a common +5, -12 and +12 volt return.
Output Noise
Total periodic and random deviation (PARD) noise found on the outputs of the power
supply is a maximum of 100 mV P-P, or 1.0% from 0 to 10 MHz, whichever is less, when
measured with any resistive load within the power supply’s operating range.
Power Fail Signal
This signal is Low True. The Power Fail signal indicates the loss of AC power by
switching to a standard TTL logic low (0) at least 5 milliseconds prior to the loss of
regulation (+5 volt output at least at 4.75 volts) with supply operation at Vac = 90 and

mA at no more than 0.6v.
Overload Protection
All DC outputs have a method to protect the power supply from overloads. The output
attempts to recover when the Enable is cycled Off then On. Cycling of the AC input Off
then On may cause the power supply to attempt recovery. The power supply also
attempts recovery when the overload condition is removed.
Short Protection
All DC outputs must have a method to protect the power supply from shorts between
the + and - terminals of each output and also protect itself from a short between the +
terminal of the +12v output and the - terminal of the -12v output. The output attempts
to recover when the Enable is cycled Off then On. Cycling of the AC input Off then On
may cause the power supply to attempt recovery. The power supply may also attempt
recovery when the short condition is removed.

AC/DC Power Supply Operation
When one each of an AC input and a DC input supply are installed together, they
operate with the following characteristics.
1). When adding the second power supply to the system, AC or DC, it can be plugged
into a backplane of a running system before the input power cord is attached and not
cause the running power supply to fault.
2). When one of each of an AC input and a DC input supply are installed in a system,
and each has appropriate input power and is enabled, the AC input supply operates
and provides 100 percent of the output load, and the DC input supply is in standby
mode, providing no output power.
3). If input power is then removed from the AC input supply, the DC input supply exits
standby mode and enters operating mode, and provides 100 percent of the output
loads. If input power is subsequently re-applied to the AC input supply, it starts and
again provides 100 percent of the output load. The DC input supply simultaneously
exits operating mode and enters standby mode, providing no output power. These
conditions do not cause an output voltage fault.
4). If input power is instead removed from the DC input supply, the AC input supply
continues operating normally, and this does not cause an output voltage fault.
Remote Sensing
Remote sensing of output #1 load is able to automatically compensate for a voltage drop
of 0.25 Vdc minimum. If parallel supplies both - sense wires tied to common.
Overshoot
Overshoot does not exceed 2.0% of any output voltage, power failure, enabled,
disabled, and AC input cycle on or off.
Load Change Transient Response
Any DC voltage returns to 1% within 2 mS in response to a 25% load step. Any DC
output does not vary more than 3% in response to a 25% load step.
Undershoot/Reverse Voltage
With respect to its normal zero reference voltage, no output voltage does, under any
normal condition become a polarity opposite to its normal operation polarity.
(Excluding applying an external reverse voltage.)

+5 Volt Risetime
The +5 volt output transitions from +2 volts to +4.75 Volts in less than 20 mS.
The +5 volt output has a monotonic rise time.
The maximum allowable overshoot is 2%.
The above conditions is over the complete load range from minimum to maximum load,
with a capacitive load from zero (0) to 2000 ufd.
The above conditions are over the complete input range of the power supply.
Output Disable
The output voltage is disabled when an AC power fail condition exists and the DC main
output has dropped 0.5v +/- 0.25 volts out of regulation.
The outputs are re-enabled when the AC input recovers.
Power Supply Enable
The power supply enable is a system controlled signal that allows the supply to output
DC power. The signal sense is LOW = no output, HIGH = DC output. This signal line
from the power supply may float up to 15 volts when not connected. This line does not
output more than 10 ma when externally connected to ground. The power supply must
remain off if this signal is less than 0.6 volts.
Holdover Storage
Output voltage stays within regulation limits for at least 20 mS from the last peak of the
line voltage cycle after input power is removed. Measured with 90 Vac input and 700
watts of output power.
OverVoltage Protection
+5 volt output limits voltage at 6.3 Vdc +/- 3% under any single fault condition.
+12 volt outputs does not exceed +15.0 Vdc under any single fault condition. Power
supply latches off and cycling the AC power restarts.
Overtemperature Protection
The power supply shuts down when the internal temperature exceeds maximum safe
rating. Power supply latches off and cycling enable restarts.

functions amongst the power supplies. With load sharing, each
power supply provides part of the load requirements for the
system. If one power supply fails in such a configuration, the other
will assume the entire load.
For the load-sharing capabilities of the system to function properly,
the following three criteria must be met:
1. Each power supply must independently supply a minimum
of 5 Amps at 5 Volts.
2. The system must supply a minimum of 12 Amps. In this case,
each power supply will contribute 50% +/- 10%.
3. Power must be AC/AC or DC/DC (not AC/DC).

8VMEbus Backplane
8
This chapter provides information about the VME backplane
installed in the system. The backplane performs these two functions
❏
Interconnects VMEmodules and transition modules
❏
Distributes operating voltages from the power supply
modules to the cooling fans and (if installed) mass storage
modules
Description
3-Slot Backplane
The backplane (see Figure 8-1 on page 8-2)is fully assembled with
connectors and terminators. The front side has three connectors on
the right side to receive connector P1 of the VMEmodules and
another set of 3 connectors on the left side to receive VMEmodule
expansion connector P2. In addition, the front side has a pair or
connectors at the top to support two drive modules. Thus, the
backplane can accommodate up to three double-high 6U
VMEmodules containing both P1 and P2 connectors, as well as a
pair of mass storage modules. An autojumpering feature eliminates
the need for daisy-chain jumpering between connector sockets.
The P2 connectors are duplicated on the reverse side of the
backplane to accommodate MVME700 series plug-in transition
modules. Two transition module connectors, designated XP1A and
XP1B, are provided for the CPU module.

Description
Dual 9-, 12-, and 20-Slot Backplane
The system chassis contains a 20-slot (see Figure 8-2 on page 8-8),
12-slot (see Figure 8-3 on page 8-9), or dual 9-slot (see Figure 8-4 on
page 8-10) full 32-bit VMEbus backplane mounted between the
VMEmodule and transition module areas. The features of the
backplane include:
❏
Accommodation for up to 20, 12, or 18 (dual 9-slot system)
VMEmodules per system, depending on the composition of
the payload
❏
All signal and power line connections for VMEbus
connectors P1 and P2
❏
P2 connections for transition modules
❏
VMEbus termination resistor networks
❏
Autojumpering feature for daisy-chain lines
8
Depending on the backplane, the front side has from 9 to 20
connectors on the top row to receive connector P1 of the
VMEmodules and another set of 9 to 20 connectors on the bottom
row to receive VMEmodule expansion connector P2. The backplane
can accommodate from 9 to 20 double-high 6U VMEmodules
containing both P1 and P2 connectors. An autojumpering feature
eliminates the need for daisy-chain jumpering between connector
sockets.
The P2 connectors on the reverse side of the backplane
accommodate MVME700 series plug-in transition modules. There
are two transition module connectors, designated XP1 and XP2,
provided for the CPU VMEmodule slot. There is one transition
module P2 connector for each of the remaining VMEmodule slots.
Please note that while Row A and Row C signals are duplicated
between the VME P2 and the transition module P2 connectors, the
Row B signals are not.
The backplane contains pass-thru openings for each VMEmodule
slot that accomodate the VMEmodule/transition module optional
pair keying kit.

Features
Features
Signal Line Termination
To prevent signal reflections, most signal lines not autojumpered
are terminated with 470-ohm (pull down) and 330-ohm (pull up)
resistors (a few lines have specialized terminators, depending on
the nature of the signals they carry). These resistors are arranged in
networks. They are permanently installed on the front of the
backplane. For J1, the networks are located at opposite ends of the
backplane adjacent to the first and last upper row (J1) connectors.
For J2, the networks are located at opposite ends of the backplane
adjacent to the first and last lower row (J2) connectors.
In addition to the VME specification termination noted above,
selected signals on some backplane boards have additional signalenhancing components (such as on the DTACK and BERR bus
lines).
Autojumpering
For propagation of the Bus Grant and Interrupt Acknowledge
daisy-chain signals, VMEbus protocol requires that all empty slots
(and all slots containing VMEmodules whose artwork does not
provide for propagation of the daisy-chain) have a means of
shorting daisy-chain inputs to outputs at the connector socket.
In many VME backplanes, the daisy-chain lines of the VMEbus are
manually shorted with removable jumpers. However, the
Exchange Ready chassis backplanes have an autojumpering feature
that detects unoccupied connector sockets and determines whether
the VMEmodules installed are capable of daisy-chain signal
propagation. If the slot is unoccupied, or if the signal is not passed
on via the VMEmodule, the signal is propogated through a buffer
on the backplane.
8-15
8
VMEbus Backplane
VMEbus Interconnectivity
The slots of the backplane are interconnected in accordance with
the VME specification, with exception of the autojumpering and
active termination.
All rows of the J1 bus connectors (A, B, C) are interconnected across
all backplane slots, providing the required signals for A24/D16
operation. The center row (B) of the J2 bus connectors is
interconnected across all slots, providing the required signals for
extended operation (A32/D32). Rows A and C of the J2 bus
connectors are not interconnected, but are available to the user for
I/O functions or expansion bus operation.
Backplane Power
VMEmodules that plug into the backplane may require voltages of
+5Vdc, +12Vdc, and –12Vdc for operation. The power supply’s
output connector plugs directly into the backplane, which
distributes the power directly to the VMEmodules.
8
The backplane also distributes DC power to one optional SCSI
Device Storage Module (as well as the system’s VMEmodule disk
or tape drives).
The backplane of the 3-slot system accommodates up to two 31/2inch half-height storage devices above the VMEmodule installation
area.
The backplane of the 12-slot chassis accommodates up to five 5 1/4inch half-height storage devices to the left of the VMEmodule
installation area.
The 20- and dual 9-slot chassis use VME mass storage modules
(consisting of two 3 1/2-inch half-height drives — a hard disk drive
together with an optional diskette, data cassette, or DAT drive —
mounted on a VME board), which plug into the VME backplane. If
installed, the VME drive modules occupy three slot positions each.

mounted in a module next to the card cage. If the fan fails, the
module is replaced as a unit.
Removal
1. Switch the power supply of the system to the
position
(Standby) and disconnect the system from the AC or DC
power source:
– If the power supply is an AC unit, unplug the power cord
from the AC outlet.

Control Board
The control board assembly controls the application of power to the
VME backplane and the routing of alarm signals from the
environmental monitoring system. The assembly consists of the
control board, switch bracket, and keyswitch. It is held in the
chassis by spring-loaded tabs on the switch bracket. 12- and 20-slot
chassis are equipped with a single control board assembly; dual 9slot chassis have two of them.
The suggested procedure for the removal and replacement of the
control board assembly is as follows:
Removal
1. Switch the power supply of the affected system to STANDBY
and disconnect the system from the AC or DC power source:
– If the power supply is an AC unit, unplug the power cord
from the AC outlet.
– If the power supply is a DC unit, turn off the -48Vdc power
source and unclamp the DC leads from the terminal block
on the power supply.
!
Caution
Removing a control board without disconnecting the
power will cause the system to power up even when set
to STANDBY.
2. Remove the front bezel, if installed.
3. Unclip the control board assembly (Figure 5-3) from the card
cage by firmly grasping the switch bracket and pulling
straight out.
4. Carefully remove the assembly from the chassis by
continuing to pull straight out.

Fan Tray Removal/Replacement
Three DC-powered fans (four fans in the dual 9-slot chassis)
provide forced-air cooling for the VMEmodules and mass storage
drives in the VME card cage. The fans (Figure 5-4) are mounted in
a tray below the card cage. If a failure occurs in any of the fans, the
tray is replaced as a unit.
The suggested procedure for removal and replacement of the
cooling fan tray is as follows:
Removal
1. Switch the power supply of the affected system to STANDBY
and disconnect the system from the AC or DC power source:
– If the power supply is an AC unit, unplug the power cord
from the AC outlet.
– If the power supply is a DC unit, turn off the -48Vdc power
source and unclamp the DC leads from the terminal block
on the power supply.
