Preface
This manual contains information for users of Seagate Cheetah
9FC (Fibre Channel interface) disc drives. It provides technical
support information, performance specifications, installation
instructions, and a troubleshooting section. Additional information is available in the Cheetah 9FC Product Manual (part number 83329210). Contact your Seagate sales representative if you
need to order this publication.
Electrostatic discharge protection
Caution. Removal of circuit boards by personnel not performing depot repair will damage components and may
void the warranty.
All drive electronic assemblies are sensitive to static electricity,
due to the electrostatically sensitive devices used within the
drive circuitry. Although some devices such as metal-oxide
semiconductors are extremely sensitive, all semiconductors, as
well as some resistors and capacitors, may be damaged or
degraded by exposure to static electricity.
Electrostatic damage to electronic devices may be caused by
the direct discharge of a charged conductor or by exposure to
the static fields surrounding charged objects. To avoid damaging
drive electronic assemblies, observe the following precautions
when installing or servicing the drive:
• Ground yourself to the drive whenever the drive electronics
are or will be exposed. Connect yourself to ground with a wrist
strap (Seagate part number 12263496). Connection may be
made to any grounded metal assembly. As a general rule,
remember that you and the drive electronics must all be
2
Cheetah 9FC Installation Guide, Rev. A
grounded to avoid potentially damaging static discharges.
• Do not remove any circuit boards from the drive.
• Never use an ohmmeter on any circuit boards.
• When installing the drive on a carrier or tray, discharge the
static electricity from the carrier or tray prior to inserting it into
the system.
Important safety information and precautions
Caution. Use forced-air ventilation when bench-testing the
drive to ensure proper cooling of drive components.
Use proper safety techniques for safe, reliable operation of this
unit.
The procedures in this manual and labels on the unit contain
warnings and cautions that must be carefully read and followed
to minimize or eliminate the risk of personal injury. The warnings
point out conditions or practices that may endanger you or others. The cautions point out conditions or practices that may damage the unit, possibly making it unsafe for use.
Always observe the following warnings and precautions:
• Follow all cautions and warnings in the procedures.
• Use sound safety practices when operating, installing, or
removing the unit.
• Use caution when troubleshooting a unit that has voltages
present. Turn off power to the unit before removing it.
• Ensure that the internal temperature of the rack or cabinet
does not exceed the limits defined for the drive when the drive
is mounted in an equipment rack or cabinet. When units are
stacked vertically, pay special attention to the top where temperatures are usually highest.
Cheetah 9FC Installation Guide, Rev. A

• Follow the precautions listed above in “Electrostatic discharge
protection.”
• Do not remove any circuit boards from the drive chassis.
Return the entire drive for depot repair if any circuit board is
defective. Removal of circuit boards by personnel not performing depot repair will damage components and may void the
warranty.
• Do not remove the head and disc assembly (HDA) from the
drive. Return the entire drive for depot repair if the HDA is
defective.
• Do not attempt to disassemble the HDA. It is not field repairable. If the sealed HDA is opened by personnel not performing
depot repair, this will damage components and void the warranty.
As a component, the drive is designed to be installed and operated in accordance with UL1950, EN60950, CSA C22.2 950M89, VDE0805 and IEC950.
Seagate takes all reasonable steps to ensure that its products
are certifiable to currently accepted standards. Typical applications of these disc drives include customer packaging and subsystem design. Safety agencies conditionally certify component
assemblies, such as the Cheetah disc drive, based on their final
acceptability in the end-use product. The subsystem designers
are responsible for meeting these conditions of acceptability in
obtaining safety-regulatory agency compliance in their end-use
products and for certifying where required by law. A necessary
part of meeting safety requirements is the provision for overcurrent protection on drive SELV supply voltages.

General description
Cheetah 9FC disc drives are high-speed, random-access digitaldata storage devices designed to be used within a host system
with a Fibre Channel-Arbitrated Loop peripheral interface.
The drive is a component for installation in an enclosure
designed for the drive. The disc drive must receive adequate
cooling (refer to “Providing adequate cooling”) and it must be
sufficiently grounded and shielded from emissions. The Cheetah
9FC Product Manual (part number 83329210) contains guidelines for a properly designed enclosure.

Installing the Cheetah 9FC drive
To install a Cheetah 9FC drive, simply plug the drive directly into
your system’s Fibre Channel backpanel 40-pin single connector
attachment (FC-SCA). There are no jumpers or terminators on
the drive, and power is supplied through the connector. Table
1 on page 24 lists the pin descriptions of the 40-pin FC-SCA.
Read the following general information topics to ensure your
drive is installed properly:
• Providing adequate cooling
• Mounting the drive
• Formatting the drive
Providing adequate cooling
The enclosure design must ensure adequate cooling for the
drive. The maximum ambient temperature is 50oC (30oC for the
rated MTBF). Refer to Figure 2 on page 17 for an illustration
showing suggested air flow patterns.
The drive’s product manual (83329210) describes how to evaluate the air-flow design. The evaluation consists of ensuring that
the case temperatures of certain critical components remain
within acceptable limits during drive operation.
We recommend orienting the drive or directing the air flow in a
way that creates the least amount of air-flow resistance while
providing air flow above the circuit boards and around the head
and disc assembly (HDA). Also, choose the shortest possible
path between the air inlet and exit. This minimizes the distance
traveled by air that is heated by the drive and by other nearby
heat sources.
16
Cheetah 9FC Installation Guide, Rev. A
Figure 2 shows one design approach with one or more fans used
to generate air flow. The air-flow pattern can be created by the
fans either pushing or drawing air. The overall flow pattern must
be directed from side to side in most FC-SCA systems.
Kühlung des Systems
Die Gehäusekonstruktion muß eine ausreichende Kühlung des
Laufwerkes gewährleisten. Die Umgebungstemperatur darf
maximal 50oC betragen (30oC für der MTBF).
Die Produkthandbuch Cheetah 9FC (Dokument 83329210)
enthalten Anweisungen zur Beurteilung der Luftstromkonstruktion. Die Beurteilung muß sicherstellen, daß sich die Gehäusetemperatur
bestimmter
kritischer
Komponenten
bei
Laufwerkbetrieb innerhalb zugelassener Grenzen hält.Wir
empfehlen, das Laufwerk so zu orientieren oder den Luftstrom
so zu lenken, daß der geringste Luftstromwiderstand vonvorne
nach hinten oder von hinten nach vorne verlaufen.

Mounting the drive
Do not touch the connector pins or any components on the control board without observing static-discharge precautions.
Always handle the drive by the frame only.
You may mount the drive in any orientation (horizontally, vertically, or any combination thereof); however, you must ensure
that the drive receives adequate air flow for cooling.
Mount the drive to the host system’s chassis using four 6-32
UNC screws. Two mounting holes are in each side of the drive
and there are four mounting holes in the bottom of the drive. See
Figure 3.
The maximum length that the screws should extend into the
chassis mounting holes is 0.15 inch (3.81 mm), measured from
the outer surface of the chassis. Tighten the screws down
evenly. Do not over-tighten or force the screw if it does not seem
to screw in easily.
Installation des Laufwerkes
Beachten Sie beim Handhaben und Anfassen der Anschlußstifte
und Komponenten die Vorsichtsmaßnahmen zur Verhinderung
statischer Aufladung. Fassen Sie das Laufwerk nur am Rahmen
an.
Das Laufwerk kann in beliebiger Orientierung (horizontal, vertikal oder schräg) installiert werden; jedoch muß dafür gesorgt
werden, daß ein ausreichender Luftstrom zur Kühlung des Laufwerkes vorhanden ist.
Befestigen Sie das Laufwerk mit vier 6-32-UNC-Schrauben am
Gehäuse des Host-Systems. Die beiden Seiten des Laufwerkes
sind mit jeweils zwei Befestigungslöcher versehen, die
Cheetah 9FC Installation Guide, Rev. A

Unterseite des Laufwerkes weist vier weitere Befestigungslöcher
auf. Siehe Abbiludung 3.
Gemessen von der Außenfläche des Gehäuses dürfen die
Schrauben maximal 3,81 mm in die Befestigungslöcher des
Gehüuses hineinragen. Die Schrauben müssen gleichmäßig,
jedoch nicht zu fest, angezogen werden. Wenn sich eine
Schraube nicht ohne Widerstand einschrauben läßt, sind die
Gewinde nicht korrekt aneinander ausgerichtet.

Inserting the drive
Most systems provide a way to insert the drive using a carrier or
tray which allows the drive to be hot-plugged into the system’s
Fibre Channel 40-pin single connector attachment (FC-SCA).
Refer to your system documentation about the method they provide and follow their instructions.
When installing the drive on a carrier or tray, discharge the static
electricity from the carrier or tray prior to inserting it into the system.
Formatting the drive
Warning.
Formatting a drive erases all user data. Be sure that
you understand this principle before formatting any
hard disc drive (it is not necessary to format a drive
which has previously been used to store data
unless you intend to erase all user data).
Note. Seagate is not responsible for lost user data.
1.
2.
Supply DC power to the drive (power is supplied to the drive
through the 40-pin FC-SCA).
Format the disc drive. This drive is designed to operate with
a variety of operating systems. Refer to your system and
Fibre Channel controller manual for information about
selecting and formatting the drive.

Enabling write cache
Write caching is a feature that allows the drive to transfer write
data to its own cache, tell the controller that the task is complete,
and then actually complete the write at a later time. This
improves write performance by freeing the CPU to go on to its
next command.
Warning.
Information can be lost if you enable write cache
and there is a system failure (for example, power
failure) before the data has actually been physically
written to the disc.
OEM drives are shipped with write cache disabled by default to
enhance data integrity. If you want to enable the write cache,
refer to your system’s drive controller and software utility documentation. Seagate provides an ASPI utility that you can use in a
PC compatible system to enable the write cache. It is available
on Seagate’s CompuServe forum and on the Seagate BBS
(refer to “Seagate technical support services” on page 8).
Connecting remote LEDs
You can connect remote LEDs using J6 (see Figure 4).
Connect the anode (usually the longer LED connector) to the
+5V pin, and the cathode to the appropriate LED output pin. For
example, if you want to attach an LED which lights up when the
drive is active (reading or writing), connect the LED’s anode connector to J6 pin 11 and the cathode to J6 pin 12.

[1] The drive has a 2.2K ohm resistor in series with this
LED driver. Tie the minus side of an external highefficiency LED (i.e., 2ma) to this pin. Connect the
plus side of the LED to +5V.
[2] An external current-limiting resistor is required when
connecting an LED to this pin. Connect the minus
side of the resistor/LED combination to this pin. Connect the plus side to +5V. This pin is connected in
parallel with the signal of the same name in the interface connector (J1).

Troubleshooting
Before calling Seagate Technical Support, please read the possibilities discussed below. The suggestions presented here will
resolve the majority of installation problems.
General installation troubleshooting
• Check system compatibility. This is a Fibre Channel-Arbitrated Loop (FC-AL) device. Check your system documentation to ensure that it supports FC-AL devices.
• Check the physical attachment. Ensure that the drive is
properly mated with the backpanel Fibre Channel single connector attachment (FC-SCA).
• Check to ensure that drive is receiving power. Insert the
drive into your system. Listen carefully for the sound of the
drive motor spinning up. If the drive motor does not spin up,
check the power supply. If your power supply is functioning
properly, but the drive does not spin up, contact the company
from which you purchased the drive.
• Check your system or backpanel documentation to
ensure you have set options in accordance with the manufacturer’s recommendations. All device options, including
addresses, are set at the backpanel within the host system or
through system software. Check your host system documentation about how to set these options in your particular system.
