Introduction
Receiving Frame Front Panel
•
The Key Lock/Drive Power Switch performs three (3) functions. The key lock
assures proper seating of the drive carrier within the receiving frame, turns power
to the drive carrier on and off, and prevents unauthorized removal or installation of
the carrier. For the computer to access data on the DE100 disk drive, the key must
be turned counterclockwise to the locked position.
The key may also be permanently attached (optional) to the locking mechanism as
shown in Appendix C.
•
The Unit ID Number Indicator (Figure 4) displays the physical address of the
DE100 drive carrier when the carrier is Installed and Locked in the receiving frame
or Removed from the receiving frame. If the drive carrier is Installed but Not Locked,
a "u" will be displayed to indicate an unlocked condition. The unit ID number is selected
by means of the unit ID select switch inside the receiving frame using a special
alignment tool supplied with the DE100. This procedure is explained later during the
installation process.
•
The Activity Indicator is a small dot next to the Unit ID Number which illuminates
to show when the host computer is accessing the data on the DE100 carrier. This
dot will flash during communication with the host computer.
•
Device Spin Down/Up Timer may be disabled by removing Jumper J6 P1-P2
(Figure 5). This feature allows the receiving frame unit number display to provide
a visual indication of drive spin down/up activity. Refer to Figure 11 for switch

INSTALLATION
Installing the Drive into the Carrier
Preparation
While performing the steps in this section, work on a soft surface to prevent excessive shock
to the drive being installed. Also refer to the manufacturer's documentation provided with the
drive.
NOTE:
A #2 Phillips screwdriver will be required during this procedure.
1.
Remove the drive from its protective packaging.
2.
Plastic Drive Bezel: If the drive came equipped with a plastic front bezel, it
must be removed.
3.
SCSI Drive Termination: Disable or remove the termination resistor packs
from the drive. Termination is handled by an external terminator in the DE100
receiving frame. Refer to the documentation provided by the drive manufacturer
for the location of these terminators or jumpers.
4.
SCSI Drive ID Select Jumpers (DE100i-SW only): Locate the SCSI ID Select
Jumper positions on the disk drive, and remove any jumper plugs in this area.
The SCSI ID cable will be installed into this section of the drive.
5.
SCSI ID Cable (DE100i-SW only): (Figure 7) The DE100i-SW carrier is supplied
with one (1) 5-wire cable. This cable is used for remote ID selection by means
of the DE100i-SW Unit ID Select Switch inside the receiving frame. The cable
is designed to connect to drives with 2mm ID Select connectors.
The cables are made up of black, brown, red, orange, and yellow wires.
The black wire is plugged into the pin used to select ID0, the brown wire plugs
into the pin for ID1, the red wire plugs into the pin for ID2, and the orange wire
connects to ID3. Most drive manufacturers mark these pins with some sort of
identification which corresponds to ID0, ID1, ID2, and ID3. The yellow wire
plugs into the drive activity LED pin.
Disk drives use a row of pins to provide ground to the ID signals. This row of
pins is not used when installing the ID select cable to the carrier connector.

computer or external expansion chassis. A number should appear in the unit
ID display window if the carrier is locked in place.
2.
Unlock the DE100 drive carrier and remove it from the receiving frame. A "u"
will be displayed initially when the unit is unlocked but will return to a number
when the carrier is removed from the receiving frame.
WARNING:
Unlocking the carrier unit switches DC power off to the drive.
Since disk drives require a short amount of time to spin down,
allow about 15 seconds before pulling the carrier unit out of the
receiving frame to avoid possible damage to the drive.
3.
Use the alignment tool supplied with the DE100 to select the ID number of the
disk drive. Refer to Figure 10 for the location of the Unit ID Select Switch inside
the receiving frame.

Installation
Adjusting the Spin Down/Up Timer
NOTE:
The timer for device spin down is controlled by a small selector, located in a cutout
on the side of the DE100 receiving frame as shown in Figure 11. When the key
is turned to the OFF position, and when the timer receives a No SCSI Activity signal
from the Hot Swap Board, it waits the specified delay time before displaying a “u”
on the front panel of the receiving frame. The amount of time required for a disk
drive to spin down is approximately 15 seconds or more. This number can vary
depending on the type of SCSI device and manufacturer (e.g. a Seagate Barracuda
may require 45 seconds). The factory configuration is set for 20 seconds. A
different delay time may be selected with the provided aligment tool. Refer to the
SCSI device manufacturer’s manual for more information on required device spin
down time.

DE100 Hot Swap Board
The DE100 SCSI Hot Swap Board (P/N DX100-SW/H) allows the installation, removal or
exchange of DE100i-SW and DE100i-SWC carriers while your computer system is operating
by monitoring and protecting the computer system and other peripheral devices on the SCSI
Bus. The Hot Swap option eliminates the need to shut down your system when adding or
removing a SCSI device by performing two functions:
1.
Delays power up/down of the drive until the time period between SCSI bus cycles.
This prevents the interruption of any SCSI bus activity by other devices on the bus.
2.
Prevents drive power sequencing from generating noise on the SCSI bus, thus
preventing data transfer corruption on other devices.
Please note that, whereas UNIX and Apple-based systems provide mount/dismount drive
commands, most PC systems do not provide such a feature. When using one of these operating
systems, it may be necessary to reboot the computer after adding or changing a drive. This
reboot activity will force the SCSI host adapter to rescan its SCSI bus for physically attached
drives, and will then be able to access the new or changed drive.
Attaching the Hot Swap Board
The DE100i-SW and DE100i-SWC may be purchased with the Hot Swap option factoryinstalled. If the Hot Swap Board has not already been attached to the receiving frame, follow
the instructions below to add the Hot Swap Board:
NOTE:
The drive carrier must be installed in the receiving frame when removing or
attaching the Hot Swap Board to ensure proper alignment between the motherboard
and the disk drive.
1.
Remove the two (2) Phillips head machine screws from the receiving frame motherboard
and set the screws aside (Figure B-1).
2.
Remove jumpers on the receiving frame motherboard locations J4 - Pins 7 & 8, and J6
- Pins 1 & 2 (Figure 5). Also make sure that W2 is set to Position "A" (default setting)
to disable onboard termination from the receiving frame motherboard.
3.
Attach the two (2) provided stand-offs into the receiving frame motherboard holes in
place of the two removed screws. Carefully align the connectors of the Hot Swap
Board with the connectors on the receiving frame board and gently push the Hot Swap
Board into position. Make certain that all connectors are properly mated.

Carrier Removal
Follow the procedures below to remove the DE100 carrier from the receiving frame equipped
with the Hot Swap option.
1.
Verify that the drive is not active. If the system is on a network, make certain other
users are not accessing the target drive, then disable it from the network. Dismount
the drive.
2.
Turn the DE100 key lock mechanism (located on the front of the receiving frame),
clockwise to the OFF position. This unlocks the drive from the receiving frame and
activates the Hot Swap Board. The unit ID number on the display will begin flashing.
WARNING:
Be careful not to remove or disturb the carrier unit at this point. Although
the carrier is physically unlocked, the drive requires a minumum of 15
seconds to spin down and is subject to vibration and possible damage
during this period.
3.
As the unit ID number flashes, the Hot Swap Board monitors the activity of the SCSI
bus. When activity is no longer present, the Hot Swap Board will remove power from
the drive and then remove the device from the SCSI Bus. The unit number will continue
to flash during this period.
4.
After a short length of time the unit display will turn from a flashing unit number to a
steady “u”, indicating that the device is powered down, unlocked and ready to be
removed from the receiving frame.
Carrier Installation
Follow the procedures below to install the DE100 carrier into the receiving frame equipped with
the Hot Swap option.
1. Install the carrier into the receiving frame. A "u" will be present on the front panel.
2. Turn the key lock mechanism, located on the front of the receiving frame,
counterclockwise to the ON position. This locks the drive into the receiving frame
and activates the Hot Swap Board. The drive will begin to spin up and the unit
number on the display will begin flashing.
3. After a short length of time the unit display will stop flashing, indicating that the
device is ready to be used.

Jumper Options
The jumpers on the Hot Swap Board are similar to those on the standard SCSI Data Express
Motherboard. See Figure B-2 for the Hot Swap Board jumper options. Make sure the
factory-installed jumper is attached to J4 - Pins 1 & 2.

Solenoid Drive Lock
The factory installed solenoid option prevents premature removal of the carrier and drive unit
until the target drive has fully spun down. For most disk drives, this period of time can range
from 15-40 seconds, depending on the type of drive being used (e.g. Seagate Barracuda drives
require up to 50 seconds). Refer to the drive manufacturer's documentation for specific drive
information.
The solenoid lock is controlled by a timing switch located on the side of the receiving frame.
Refer to the section "Adjusting the Spin Down/Up Timer", for information describing the
readjustment of the timer setting.
The solenoid option provides an extra step in drive protection by preventing the removal and
movement of the drive until the drive motor has fully stopped.

Appendix C - Attaching the ON/OFF Key
The following information describes the necessary steps to attach the ON/OFF key to the key
lock mechanism so that it is non-removable, preventing accidental key loss. The procedure
can be reversed at a later date to revert back to a removable key.
1. Make certain power is OFF to the receiving frame.
Locate the rectangular shaped key lock mechanism access hole on the inside of the receiving
frame. Note that the pawl is in an upright position.
Insert the key into the key lock.
2. Rotate the key 90 degrees counterclockwise so
that the pawl is visible in the access hole as
shown in the figure at left.
3. Using the provided alignment tool, unscrew and
remove the pawl from the access hole.
4. Rotate the key 180 degrees clockwise (or counterclockwise).
5. Reinstall the pawl into the access hole with the
alignment tool.
Your key is now attached to the key lock mechanism.
