General

The extension unit WJ-HDE300 can accommodate up to four hard disk drives per unit to add available disk space to the digital disk recorder WJ-HD316A/WJ-HD309A series. Up to seven extension units can be connected to a digital disk recorder. The units can be operated in RAID level 5* mode for high tolerance to disk error.

* RAID level 5 (Redundant Arrays for Independent Disks, independent data disks with distributed parity blocks)

RAID level 5 regards 3 or more drives as one drive, and it is possible to read data by automatically attaching error correction data even though one of the drives is broken. (It is impossible to read data if 2 or more drives are broken.)

RAID level 5 requires a minimum of 3 drives per unit.

When using the RAID function, the logical disk size of the extension unit will be as below.

Logical disk size = Smallest size of the disk among the disks in the extension unit x (Number of the disks in the extension unit - 1) The actual space may be several percent lower than the logical space.

Even when the total capacity of HDD mounted on each extension unit is more than 2 TB, the capacity that is actually available will be 2 TB or less.

* Important

When set to RAID level 5, the digital disk recorder will not access the HDD preinstalled in it, but will access only the HDDs in the extension unit.

Precautions

• Do not operate the appliance beyond its specified temperature, humidity or power source ratings.

Do not use the appliance in an extreme environment where a high temperature or high humidity exists. Use the appliance at temperatures within +5 °C to +45 °C

(41 °F to 113 °F) and humidity below 85 %.

The input power source for this appliance is 220 V AC –

240 V AC 50 Hz.

• Avoid shock and vibration

Shock or vibration may damage the HDD.

The HDDs are fragile especially when the HDD motors are revolving and the HDD POWER indicator lights. Be sure to turn off either switch: the POWER switch on the rear panel, or the HDD POWER switch inside the front lid: before you mount the unit into a rack or dismount it.

Do not move the HDD for 30 seconds after turning off the power.

• Pay attention to static electricity

Put your hand on a metallic surface to discharge static electricity before installation.

Do not touch components mounted on the HDD directly with your hand.

Hold only the two sides of the HDD when installing.

• Avoid condensation on the surface of the HDD.

If this happens, do not turn on the power of the appliance and leave the appliance for around 2 hours.

Wait until the dew evaporates in any of the following cases.

• The appliance is moved to a place significantly different in temperature or humidity.

• The appliance is moved out from an air-conditioned room.

• The appliance is placed in an extremely humid place.

• The appliance is placed in a room where a heater has just been turned on.

• Consumable parts

Contact your dealer about replacement when the time comes.

A hard disk drive needs replacing after a certain length

(depends on the model) of operation.

Cooling fans also need replacing after around

20 000 - 30 000 hours of operation.

• Do not block the ventilation opening or slots on the cover.

To prevent the appliance from overheating, place it at least 5 cm (2 inches) away from the wall.

• Avoid placing the unit on an inclined surface.

Otherwise, malfunction or damage to the disk may occur. Place the unit in a horizontal position.

Important

• Changing the MODE switch will not be accepted when the ERROR indicator lights red and/or when HDD 1-4 indicate a system error status by lighting red and orange. When this happens, ask your dealer to solve the error.

• When set to RAID5, the HDD preinstalled in the digital disk recorder will not work. Instead, it is applied only to the HDDs installed in the extension unit and the digital disk recorder will perform storage and readout of the image data by accessing the extension unit.

• The MODE switches of all extension units in a system should be set to the same position, SINGLE or RAID5.

Otherwise, the system will malfunction.

• The available disk space of the unit can be logically calculated as follows. The actual space may be several percent lower than you calculated depending on the

HDD type used and their combination. The most efficient way is to use the same type drives.

When SINGLE is selected, it will be the sum of all the HDD sizes.

When RAID 5 is selected, it will be as follows.

When 3 HDDs are in the unit: It will be double the size of the smallest HDD size.

When 4 HDDs are in the unit: It will be triple the size of the smallest HDD size.

For example, if 4 HDDs of 80 GB, 120 GB, and two

160 GB are mounted, the available disk space will be 80 G x 3 = 240 GB.

Important

• Type of hard disk drive

Consult your dealer about hard disk drives. Use only hard disk drives compatible with the extension unit. If unauthorized hard disk drives are used, it may cause a system error.

It is recommended that the same type drives having the same capacity should be installed in the extension units to maximize the usable capacity.

• The HDDs should be installed in the proper positions in the order as shown above. Do not skip or reverse the order of the HDD positions. Otherwise, the recorder will not recognize the extension unit or wrongly mounted drives.

• The MODE switches of all units in a system should be set to the same position, SINGLE or RAID5. When mixed, it will cause a system error. See Troubleshooting for details.

• When applying the RAID5 mode, it requires a minimum of 3 drives per unit. When only two drives are mounted in position #1 and #2, the ERROR indicator will be lit red, HDD3 indicator will blink red, and HDD4 indicator will be lit red.

• When applying the RAID5 mode, the digital disk recorder will not access the HDD preinstalled in it, but will access only the HDDs in the extension unit.

• Do not change the installed positions after the system has been operated. Otherwise, data readout will not be performed

• The replaced/added HDDs will be formatted.

SINGLE mode:

Only the replaced/added HDD will be formatted. For example, when the HDD

4 of the extension unit 2 is replaced, only the HDD4 of the extension unit 2 will be formatted.

RAID 5 mode:

All the HDDs of the extension units will be formatted when a new HDD is added or a preinstalled HDD is removed. For example, when the HDD

4 of the extension unit 2 is added, all the HDDs of the extension unit 2 will be formatted.

• Physical connections determine the unit number in a system for each unit. Connect units with the recorder in numeric order as shown in the figure. For example, connect the sixth and seventh units to the third unit when five units have been already installed.

• Do not change connections after the system has run.

Otherwise, the recorder will no longer recognize the extension units as before. You can change connections only when you can discard all existing data stored in the units.

• If turning off the power of a unit, none of the connected following units will work because of interrupted data transmission.

Note:

When the system is connected in a different way from the figure, a unit number check can be performed on the HDD SAFETY MODE of the digital disk recorder.

Refer to Setup Procedures.

Setup Procedures

The following pages describe procedures on how to set up or change the disk mode, how to recover data in RAID5, or how to check the unit number using the HDD SAFETY MODE.

Notes:

• Refer to the operating instructions of the digital disk recorder WJ-HD316A/WJ-HD309A series for setup menu operations.

• The MODE switches of all units in a system should be set to the same position, SINGLE or RAID5.

• The HDDs should be installed in the proper positions in the

HDD 2 HDD 4 order as shown in the figure. Do not skip or reverse the order of the HDD positions. Otherwise, the recorder will not

HDD 1 HDD 3 recognize the extension unit.

• Do not change HDD positions of the extension unit after once the system has been operated. Otherwise, it will be impossible to read the recorded data.

• The power-on order should be the extension units first and then the recorder. The power-off order should be the recorder first and then the units.

• At least, three hard disk drives per extension unit are needed to run it in the RAID5 mode.

Recovery of RAID5 Disk

Replacing and recovering RAID5 disk

When an HDD access indicator on the front panel of the extension unit is lit red, it indicates that the hard disk drive malfunctions.

Do the following to replace and recover the faulty hard disk.

Important:

• Immediately replace the hard disk when an HDD access indicator is lit red. If one indicator is lit red and the other blinks red, or the second hard disk fails during the recovery process, it is impossible to recover the data as a RAID5 system.

• When the ERROR indicator is lit red, it is a system error.

Consult your dealer. Refer to Troubleshooting.

• Refer to

Replacing/Mounting HDD for details on types, mounting positions, and number of hard disk drives that should be installed in the unit.
