Hard Disk Unit for PC CPU Module Compatible with MELSEC-Q Series PPC-HDD(MS)A User’s Guide CONTEC CO.,LTD. Thank you for purchasing the PPC-HDD(MS)A hard disk unit for PC CPU Module. Follow the instructions in this guide to use the product. Notes! - The hard disk drive can be easily damaged by electrostatic discharge (ESD). in handling the hard disk unit for moving or assembling. Use meticulous care - When using the hard disk unit, be sure to satisfy the conditions listed as its general specifications. For use in a severe environment, use the silicon disk unit instead. - For use in a place subject to vibration or shock, use a set of shock-proof brackets [PPC-HBR-01] available as an option. - As the hard disk unit has a limited life, be sure to back up important data recorded on the unit. To back up the contents of the hard disk, including the OS, you should use a commercial backup tool (such as Symantec Ghost). - The hard disk drive (HDD) of this disk unit has not guaranteed use by continuation and continuation power for 24 hours. When it is used by continuation operation and continuation power a life falls extremely. In the case of a 24-hour operation system, use of our company silicon disk (SDD) is recommended. - The life of a hard disk drive changes with environment or operating conditions. As a standard, power time (motor-on time) below 333hours/month (below 11 hours/day), disk access time is 20% or less, it becomes which for 20,000 hours (power time) or five years, or an early thing. - Do not touch the interface connector of the hard disk unit. - Before plugging to or unplugging from the connector on the hard disk unit, be sure to turn off the power unit. - CONTEC assumes no liability for any loss or destruction of data recorded by this product regardless of the attribute of the causing fault or failure. Be sure to back up important data. Copyright - - 1 Copyright 2006 CONTEC CO., LTD. ALL RIGHTS RESERVED.

Before using the hard disk unit, be sure to mount the MELSEC-Q Series base unit on the control panel using screws. Do not use the base unit mounted on the DIN rail. For mounting the base unit, refer to the “Mitsubishi General-purpose Sequencer QCPU (Q Mode) User’s Manual (Hardware Design, Maintenance and Inspection)”. Device is to be powered by limited Voltage/Current circuit of Listed Power Supplies, Models : Q61P-A1, Q61P-A2, Q61P, Q63P, Q64P, manufactured by Mitsubishi Electric Corp. Fastening the Hard Disk Unit - Fit the unit fixing hook in the unit fixing slot in the base unit, then push the hard disk unit in the direction of the arrow to set the hard disk unit on the base unit Unit fixing slot Unit fixing hook - After setting the hard disk unit on the base unit, be sure to use the attached unit fixing screw to fasten the hard disk unit to the base unit. Tighten the screw within the following torque range. Tightening torque range: 36 - 48N·cm If the hard disk unit may be subject to vibration between 4.9 and 9.8 m/s2, use a set of hard disk unit shock-proof brackets [PPC-HBR-01] available as an option. For installing the base unit with the hard disk unit on the control panel, refer to the manual for the shock-proof brackets. 5 PPC-HDD(MS)A PPC-HDD(MS)A User's Guide Functions of Components Component Locations Front panel Access LED Enhanced(slave) IDE interface connector Internal disk master/slave selector switch * Set the first and second disk units as the master and slave devices, respectively.

Note! - Setting the silicon disk unit as the master device involves a restrictions. manual for the silicon disk unit. - To use the hard disk unit along with the dedicated CD-ROM drive [IPC-CDD-02] in a master/slave arrangement, refer to the manual for the dedicated CD-ROM drive. 7 For details, refer to the PPC-HDD(MS)A PPC-HDD(MS)A User's Guide Average Life of the Hard Disk Drive The average life of the hard disk drive is 5 years or 20,000 hours of energized time whichever reached first. High-temperature Detection Feature Using the hard disk unit in a high-temperature environment shortens the life of the hard disk. The hard disk unit has a high-temperature detection feature to detect an ambient operating temperature of 47±3°C or higher using the high-temperature detection function of bus interface driver software. Use this feature as a means of warning when the hard disk unit is being used at high temperature. When high-temperature detection is not necessary, you can disable the high-temperature detection function by setting with the bus interface driver software. In that case, high-temperature detection is not performed. For details on this function, refer to the Bus Interface Driver User's Manual [PPC-CPU686(MS)-MU or PPC-CPU852(MS)-MU, separately priced].
