1.7 About SCSI
Be aware of the following issues before using SCSI devices.
(1). SCSI ID: Each device attached to the SCSI host adapter must be assigned a
unique SCSI ID, which distinctively identifies a SCSI device for its data transfer
and processing.
While connecting more than one SCSI devices, each device should have a different
ID number.
For Ultra2 Wide SCSI interface, the selectable SCSI ID is from 0 to 15. But 7 is
usually reserved for the SCSI adapter.
(2). Terminator: SCSI is featured with high scalability. In order to ensure reliable data
transmission on the SCSI bus, a terminator should be installed at the end of the
bus.
No matter how many SCSI devices (up to 15) are attached to the bus, a terminator
must be added to the last device.

Chapter 2 Installation
This chapter contains 6 parts: The Signal LEDs, Set the SCSI ID, Set the Mode,
Install the Hard Drives, Connect the SCSI port, and Replace the Hard Drive.
NOTICE
Make sure to power off the system during installation or
changing any configuration.
2.1
The Signal LEDs
The signal LEDs of ARS-3020 is as figure 2-2 shows. Besides the power singal LED,
there are 8 LEDs on the front panel of ARS-3020. Every 2 LEDs indicate the status of
a hard drive.

2.2 Set the SCSI ID
On the rear panel of ARS-3020 there is a SCSI ID switch as figure 2-3 shows. Set the
SCSI ID by adjusting the switch up or down. [Don’t set ID 7. It is for SCSI card.]
Setting SCSI ID & configuration mode: Be sure that each device has a unique ID number (see 1.7). No matter how many ARS-3020s (up to 15) are installed and connected,
the SCSI ID set on every switch cannot be the same. The selectable number for ARS3020 is from 0 to 15.

(1). Pin 1: Reserved
The default is OFF.
(2). Pin 2: JBOD Mode vs. Normal Mode
The default is JBOD. It combines 2 or more hard drives into a big one. The enlarged
capacity is convenient for mass data storage. In Normal mode the SCSI adapter
will detect the hard drives you have connected. You need to enable the SCSI
adapter’s LUN support. Take ACARD AEC-67160 as example. In the SCSI BIOS
screen, you need to set “Support LUN# 0 Upto Max LUN# As....” as 3 so that
the computer can detect all hard drives.
(3). Pin 3: SCSI Host Transfer Rate at 80MB/s vs. 40MB/s
The default is 80MB/s. If the SCSI adapter is not so capable or the signals become
unstable after connecting some ARS-3020s, lower the speed to 40MB/s.
However, if you have installed AEC-67160 SCSI adapter, the host PC will
automatically detect how many ARS-3020s you have connected, and adjust the
transfer rate.
(4). Pin 4: SCSI Host Transfer Rate at 160MB/s
The default is OFF. But if pin 4 is adjusted to ON, the highest transfer rate will
reach 160MB/s.
2.4
Install the Hard Drives
Follow the steps below to install hard drives into the trays of ARS-3020.
(1). Open the tray by pressing its handle.
Figure 2-4

(2). Pull the handle to let the tray out.
Figure 2-5
(3). Put a hard drive into the tray.
Figure 2-6
(4). Turn the tray, fasten with 4 screws, and put it back to ARS-3020.
Figure 2-7
(5). Install the other hard drives by repeating step 1 to 4.
Then, set the hard drives as Master or Slave in accordance with figure 2-8.Connect in
this way, otherwise the signal LEDs cannot display correctly.

Connect the SCSI Port
Connect one ARS-3020
Connect any one of the SCSI ports on the back of ARS-3020 to the external SCSI port
on the host PC with the enclosed SCSI LVD cable. Then, plug a terminator into another
SCSI port on the back of ARS-3020. If there is no SCSI port on the host PC, insert a
SCSI adapter like ACARD AEC-67160 or AEC-67162.
Daisy chain of ARS-3020s
Use SCSI LVD cables to connect two or more ARS-3020s, and add a terminator to the
last ARS-3020. See figure 2-9 and refer to 2.2 for installing more ARS-3020s.

NOTICE
1. It is recommended not to attach any single-ended device to the SCSI
adapter connecting with ARS-3020. It will drop down the performance
of ARS-3020.
2.
2.6
It is invalid to adjust DIP switch during operation. Before changing the
setting, power off the host PC and ARS-3020 first. You had better set
JBOD or Normal mode right in the beginning. The later change may
damage the stored data.
Replace the Hard Drive
It is the same as those mentioned in 2.4, but power off the host PC and all operating
ARS-3020s first.

Chapter 3 Troubleshooting
If the installed ARS-3020 does not function normally, please check the following items.
(1). LEDs do not display normally after powering on
Examine if DIP switch was set right, and if signal line was connected badly.
(2). Red LED lights after installing a HDD
If you have installed a hard drive, but the red LED lights, please do the following
three things.
1. Re-plug the IDE cables and the status signal lines, which are 3-pin color
cables connecting to CN6.
2. Replace the hard drive if the red LED still lights.
3. Contact the distributor if the problem still exists.

(3). The HDD’s power LED blinks red for 1 second and green for 9 seconds
The system has detected a bad track. Please get a good hard drive.
(4). The System doesn’t show all HDDs in normal mode
Inspect the BIOS screen while booting up the system. See if it displays LUN=3.
If not, follow the BIOS setup procedure stated in 2.3.
(5). The HDD’s capacity isn’t found in the system
Here let’s take Windows XP as an example.
1. Right-click “My Computer” and enter “Manage”.
2. Choose “Disk Management” under “Storage”, and a given hard drive ID will
appear on the right lower corner of the window.
3. If the newly installed hard drive has no ID, “Partition” and then “Format” it.
4. If the newly installed hard drive doesn’t appear on the screen, it might be
improperly installed or damaged. Try again.
