Chapter 1 General Information
1.1 Introduction
The SPC-530MB / SPC-530BP, the PC/AT-compatible computer, is designed for high-reliability applications. Not only easily installed and maintained in mission critical applications and harsh environments, it
is also a high-end rackmount fault-resilient server PC. The SPC-530BP can be fitted with a 20-slot
PC-bus compatible passive backplane. The SPC-530MB can be fitted with an ATX motherboard. Both
the SPC-530BP and SPC-530MB provide one 400-watt ATX redundant power supply and three
hot-swap cooling fans. They accept up to six front-access half-height disk drives.
The SPC-530BP / SPC-530MB features an advanced fault detection and alarm notification system to
monitor its own hardware status. If your PC system shuts down without advance warning, this can be
dangerous and may cause considerable loss.

Fault detection and alarm notification
• Power failure: This operates only when you have installed the redundant power supply
(RPS-400ATX). If either of the two power modules fails, the dedicated LED (PWR) changes color
from green to red, and an audio alarm also sounds. The dedicated LED remains red for the failed
power module until it is fixed.
• Fan failure: If any of the three cooling fans fails, the dedicated LED changes color from green to
red, and an audio alarm also sounds. The dedicated LED remains red for the failed fan until it is fixed.
The fan assembly can be hot-swapped if any fan fails.
• High temperature: If the chassis interior temperature exceeds 65o C (149o F) (standard setting), the
LED changes color from green to red, and an audio alarm also sounds. The LED remains red until the
temperature drops below 63o C.
• Temperature select: The temperature threshold can be adjusted to one of four readings, by setting
the switch on the alarm board: 65o C (default setting), 55o C, 70o C and 75o C.
• Audible alarm: A buzzer on board is activated (continous beep) as soon as a malfunction is detected,
and sounds until the alarm reset button is pressed. The alarm reset button is on the front panel.
However, the alarm indicator will stay red until the fault condition is resolved.
• Self-test: Press the alarm reset button for 8 seconds, and the alarm board will self-test automatically
for all functions. The alarm board can also monitor the temperature's sensor IC. If the sensor has
failed, or there is no connection, the buzzer will sound a " Beep x Beep x ..." alarm.
Controls for the system
The SPC-530 series' front panel provides one soft switch and one system reset button to re-boot the PC
system. See the following figure:

Chapter 2 System Setup
The SPC-530 series is an ATX-compatible computer designed for industrial applications. This rugged
chassis meets the EIA RS-310C 19" rackmount standard.
Setting up your SPC-530 series requires only a screwdriver and a small amount of time. Before you
begin, you should also gather together all of the cards you plan to install, as well as the disk drives you
plan to use.
WARNING:
Disconnect all power from the chassis before you install
the CPU cards. Unplug the power cord from the wall,
Do not just turn off the power switch. If you are not sure
what to do, take the job to an experienced professional.
2.1 Removing the cover
There are screws near the top, along the sides, and on the rear to secure the cover to the chassis.
Remove them, and then you can lift the cover free of the chassis. See Figure 2.1 below:

2.2 Removing the handles
The handles and mounting ears for the front panel can be removed as follows. Please see Figure 2.2
below:
2.2 Removing the handles
2.3 The cooling fans
There are three cooling fans inside the chassis. To replace or service the fans, open the top cover as in
Figure 2.1. Loosen the thumbscrews, and pull out the whole fan assembly. Please refer to Figure 2.3
below:

2.4 Installing the disk drives
1. Open the top cover as in Figure 2.1. There is one independent disk drive bay on the front of the
chassis. Remove the four outer screws which mount the drive bay to the chassis. Slide the drive bay
toward the rear of the chassis, and lift it free of the chassis. See Figure 2.4 below.
2. Remove the front cover of the drive bay, and insert the drives into their proper locations in the drive
bay. See Figure 2.5.

2.5 Inserting the drives into the drive bay
2.5 Temperature setting
If the chassis interior temperature exceeds 65o C (149o F) (default setting), the LED changes color from
green to red. There is also an audio alarm. The LED remains red until the temperature drops below
63o C.
The default of the "RF_JMP" is PIN1-2: ON, which enables redundant power detection.
Temperature can also be selected (via SW1) on the alarm board inside the chassis:

Termination resistor signals
The termination resistors provide an impedance mismatch at the end of the bus, to prevent signal
reflections. This mismatch has to be balanced by the capability of the CPU and optional cards to
electrically drive the load imposed by the resistor.
