Product Warranty (2 years)
Advantech warrants to you, the original purchaser, that each of its products will be free from defects in materials and workmanship for two years
from the date of purchase.
This warranty does not apply to any products which have been repaired or
altered by persons other than repair personnel authorized by Advantech,
or which have been subject to misuse, abuse, accident or improper installation. Advantech assumes no liability under the terms of this warranty as
a consequence of such events.
Because of Advantech’s high quality-control standards and rigorous testing, most of our customers never need to use our repair service. If an
Advantech product is defective, it will be repaired or replaced at no
charge during the warranty period. For out-of-warranty repairs, you will
be billed according to the cost of replacement materials, service time and
freight. Please consult your dealer for more details.
If you think you have a defective product, follow these steps:
1.

onscreen messages you get when the problem occurs.
2.
Call your dealer and describe the problem. Please have your manual, product, and any helpful information readily available.
3.
If your product is diagnosed as defective, obtain an RMA (return
merchandize authorization) number from your dealer. This allows
us to process your return more quickly.
4.
Carefully pack the defective product, a fully-completed Repair and
Replacement Order Card and a photocopy proof of purchase date
(such as your sales receipt) in a shippable container. A product
returned without proof of the purchase date is not eligible for warranty service.

• Installing the 2.5" Hard Disk Drive
(HDD)
• Connecting Power
Chapter 3 Hardware Installation and
Upgrade
3.1 Jumpers and Connectors
The ARK-3381 Embedded Box Computer consists of a PC-based computer that is housed in an aluminum top cover, a metal bottom case with
accessed bottom cover and Front/ Rear Metal Face plate. Your HDD,
SDRAM, are all readily accessible by removing the accessed bottom
cover. Any maintenance or hardware upgrades can be easily completed
after removing the top cover, and Front with Rear Metal Face plate. If you
are a systems integrator and need to know how to completely disassemble
the embedded box computer, you can find more useful information in
Chapter 6.
Warning! Do not remove any mechanical parts, such
as the top cover, bottom cover and front with rear face
plate until you have verified that no power is flowing
within the Embedded Box Computer. Power must be
switched off and the power cord must be unplugged.
Every time you service the Embedded Box Computer,
you should be aware of this.
3.2 Setting jumpers
You can configure your ARK-3381 to match the needs of your application by setting jumpers. A jumper is the simplest kind of electrical switch.
It consists of two metal pins and a small metal clip (often protected by a
plastic cover) that slides over the pins to connect them. To “close” a
jumper, you connect the pins with the clip. To “open” a jumper you
remove the clip. Sometimes a jumper will have three pins, labeled 1, 2,
and 3. In this case, you would connect either pins 1 and 2 or pins 2 and 3.
ARK-3381 User Manual

The jumper settings are schematically depicted in this manual as follows:
A pair of needle-nose pliers may be helpful when working with jumpers.
If you have any doubts about the best hardware configuration for your
application, contact your local distributor or sales representative before
you make any changes.

Award BIOS Setup
Chapter 4 Award BIOS Setup
4.1 Introduction
Award's BIOS ROM has a built-in setup program that allows users to
modify the basic system configuration. This type of information is stored
in battery-backed memory (CMOS RAM) so that it retains the setup
information when the power is turned off.
4.1.1 CMOS RAM Auto-backup and Restore
The CMOS RAM is powered by an onboard button cell battery. When
you finish BIOS setup, the data in CMOS RAM will be automatically
backed up to Flash ROM. If operation in a harsh industrial environment
causes a soft error, the BIOS will check the data in CMOS RAM and
automatically restore the original data from Flash ROM to CMOS RAM
for booting.
Note: If you intend to change the CMOS setting without restoring the previous backup, you have to click on “DEL” within two seconds of the
“CMOS checksum error...” display screen message appearing. Then
enter the “Setup” screen to modify the data. If the “CMOS checksum
error...” message appears again and again, please check to see if you
need to replace the battery in your system.
ARK-3381 User Manual

4.2 Entering Setup
Turn on the computer and check for the “patch code”. If there is a number
assigned to the patch code, it means that the BIOS supports your CPU. If
there is no number assigned to the patch code, please contact Advantech's
applications engineer to obtain an up-to-date patch code file. This will
ensure that your CPU's system status is valid. After ensuring that you
have a number assigned to the patch code, press <Del> to allow you to
