GENERAL DESCRIPTION
The Plasmon Infinity LaserDrive 6100 (LD 6100) is a write once read many (WORM), high-capacity optical
disk drive which uses a removable 300-mm (12-in.), LM 6000 optical media cartridge with storage capacity
of up to 12 GBytes. The LD 6100 can also read LM 4000 media. The LD 6100 is available in a Rack Mount,
Desktop, Tower, FileNet ® Jukebox and Cygnet ® Jukebox configurations offering support for varied
operating orientations and installation environments (see figure below).

The LD 6100 supports a sustained read transfer rate of 2.7 MBytes/sec with error correction and defect
management capabilities to maintain data integrity and manage media flaws. The drive also supports a
sustained write transfer rate of 1.3 MBytes/sec with data verification.
A Drive Operator Console (DOC) located on the front panel of the drive provides user control of drive
operation and configuration as explained in the Operating Instruction section of this manual.
Operating messages are presented on the alphanumeric display in English, French or German. The
language used is selectable.
The Auxiliary Diagnostic Port (ADP) can be used to download updates to the drive firmware in the field.
Refer to the LD 6100/LF 6600/LF 6602 Product Specification (P/N 97653977) for more information. The
ADP is located on the front panel of the Rack Mount, the Desk Top and the Tower configurations. The ADP
may be located on the rear panel of the Cygnet Jukebox and the Filenet configurations.
The LD 6100 drive implements the Small Computer System Interface (SCSI) via standard SCSI-2 micro
connectors located on the rear panel. Single-ended and differential interface options are available, and the
interface can be changed in the field. Both the single-ended and differential controllers support
asynchronous or synchronous data transfer operations.
Preventive maintenance for the LD 6100 is minimal. Corrective maintenance is simplified by internal
diagnostic firmware which detects, isolates and reports malfunctions to the operator and identifies the Field
Replaceable Unit (FRU).
LM 6000 media is interchangeable between the LD 6100, LF 6600, and the LF 6602. The LX 6XXX series
of drives will also read LM 4000 media written by the Plasmon LMS 4000 series of optical drive products
(except for media with serial numbers less than X0010000, where X designates an A or B).

AC GROUND
The LD 6100 AC power cord connects the LD 6100 to safety ground through the site AC power system.
The site AC power system must tie this safety ground connection to earth ground. All site AC power
connections must be maintained on the same safety ground.The line ground connector located on the rear
panel can also be used to tie chassis ground to earth ground. This ground connector is a 6-mm (0.24-in)
M4 stud with a nut and lock washer.
AC POWER CORD
The type of AC power cord that is supplied with the LD 6100 is based on the configuration ordered.
POWER SUPPLY OUT-OF-RANGE PROTECTION FEATURES
The LD 6100 power supply provides over and under voltage protection, over current protection, power
failure detection and over temperature protection. Should an out-of-range condition be detected, the LD
6100 will shut down the DC outputs of the power supply. For example, if the internal temperature of the
power supply reaches 80° C +/- 5° C (176° F +/- 9° F), the power supply will shut down. Once the situation
has been corrected, power can be restored by turning the AC power switch to the off position and then to
the on position again.
TILT RANGE
The LD 6100 Rack Mount, Desktop and Cygnet Jukebox configurations will operate over a tilt range of 10
degrees from the horizontal position. The Tower and FileNet Jukebox configuration will operate over a tilt
range of 10 degrees from the vertical position. The LD 6100 is not designed for dynamic tilt environments.
HEAT DISSIPATION
The drive will typically present a heat load of 146 kg-calories/hr (580 BTU/hr) during a read/write operation.
When media cartridges are inserted, loaded, spun up, spun down, unloaded and removed at the LD 6100's
maximum rate in a jukebox environment, the LD 6100 will typically present a heat load of 182 kg-calories/
hr (725 BTU/hr).
PARTICULATE LIMITS
The LD 6100 is designed for use in an office or computer room. The environment must have a low dust
level. The LD 6100 filters incoming air for cooling to reduce the quantity of particles entering the drive;
however, the filter is not effective against small particles (including tobacco smoke) which will become
deposited on optical components and media, causing degradation in drive performance. Refer to the
Operator Maintenance section for media cleaning and air filter cleaning instructions.

3) Secure the Inner Slide Channels to the Chassis with three M4 X 6 screws in each as
shown in the above figure.
The Front and Rear Mounting Brackets are identical and differ only in orientation during installation. The
most critical part of the assembly process involves selecting the appropriate mounting holes when mating
the Rear Mounting Brackets to the left and right Outer Slide Channels and ensuring that the Front
Mounting Brackets are properly positioned before the mounting screws are tightened.
After they are properly positioned, the Front Mounting Brackets have to be securely fastened to the Outer
Slide Channel to prevent them from moving. The same is not true for the Rear Mounting Brackets; their
mounting hardware must be loosely installed so that the position of the Rear Mounting Brackets can be
adjusted when the slide kit is installed into a rack.
There are six mounting holes on the rear end of each Outer Slide Channel that are used to attach the Rear
Mounting Brackets. Different pairs of holes can be selected when attaching the Rear Bracket to
accommodate different depth cabinets. The next figure shows the approximate adjustment range of each
pair of holes. The range indicated represents the distance between the mounting surfaces of the front and
back cabinet rails.
4) Locate the appropriate pair of mounting holes at the rear of the left Outer Slide Channel,
as determined from your cabinet. Slide assembly installed into Rack.

5) Loosely install the mounting brackets on the Outer Slide Channels with two sets of
mounting hardware. Be sure to use the lower slots in the brackets.
Before the Front Mounting Brackets can be installed, it will be necessary to align the access slots on the
inside of the Intermediate Slide Channel with the mounting holes on the forward end of the Outer Slide
Channel. The mounting holes and access slots can be aligned by pulling the Intermediate Slide Channel in
or out of the Outer Slide Channel until the access slots and mounting holes line up.
After this alignment is made, the mounting screws can be inserted through the Intermediate Slide Channel
access slots, through the Outer Slide Channel mounting holes and into the Front Mounting Brackets.

6) Align the Intermediate Slide Channel access slots with Outer Slide Channels using two
sets of mounting hardware and loosely fasten the mounting brackets to the forward end
of the Outer Slide Channels using two sets of mounting hardware. Be sure to use the
lower slots in the brackets.The position of the Front Mounting Brackets must be adjusted
before tightening the mounting screws. This adjustment involves moving the front
mounting bracket toward the front of the Outer Slide Channel until it stops. The detail
view of the front mounting bracket (see next figure) depicts a front mounting bracket that
has been properly installed.

The mounting hardware consists of eight 10-32 x 5/16 in. screws, eight M5 x 8 screw/washer assemblies
and four nut plates.
NOTE
The 10-32 and M5 screws are used with racks that have the
corresponding threaded mounting holes in the rails. If the cabinet rails
have clearance holes, the 10-32 screws are used with the nut plates.
The next figure illustrates how this portion of the kit is installed into a rack.
8) Select the appropriate mounting hardware to install the left and right slide assemblies.
Both the left and right slide assemblies must be installed at the same height on the rack rails. Failure to
install the left and right slide assemblies at the same height will create a misalignment between the left and
right slide assemblies and prevent the LD 6100 Rack Mount chassis from being installed into the rack.
9) Select an appropriate mounting height for the left and right slide assemblies.
10) Tighten the rear brackets to the slide assembly just enough for the bracket to hold its
position yet still permitting sliding adjustment.
11) Hold the slide assembly in position on the cabinet rails with the front bracket held firmly
against its rail. Slide the rear bracket until it also is flush with the rear rail. Remove the
slide assembly and securely tighten the rear bracket in that position.
12) Replace the slide assemblies in their cabinet positions and secure with the preselected
hardware. Each bracket should receive two screws. The lower of the two screws should
be placed in the bottom bracket hole if possible for maximum stability.
The left and right Intermediate Slide Channels should have already been extended and locked when the
left and right Inner Slide Channels were removed earlier in the procedure; however, it is advisable to
ensure that they are both fully extended from the rack and locked in place before attempting to install the
LD 6100 chassis with the attached left and right Inner Slide Channels.
WARNING
Due to the weight of the LD 6100, rack stability must be considered
during and after installation. The rack may become unstable and fall
over when the LD 6100 is fully extended on the slides. Exercise
caution when installing the LD 6100 or extending it from the rack.
Also, if rack support legs are available, they must be pulled out before
the installation is attempted.

SCSI BUS CONSIDERATIONS
The length of the SCSI interface cables used to interconnect the LD 6100 with other SCSI devices is
dictated by the type of SCSI controller installed in each LD 6100. A maximum of seven LD 6100's can be
connected to a host in a daisy chain configuration.
When the single-ended interface controller is used on all SCSI devices, the total length of the SCSI
interface cable cannot exceed 6 m (19.5 ft). (Plasmon LMS does not recommend single-ended fast
synchronous.) When a differential interface controller is used on all SCSI devices, the total SCSI interface
cable length cannot exceed 25 m (82 ft).
NOTE
The internal SCSI cable length for each LD 6100 is approximately 340
mm (13.4 in.). This distance must be considered as part of the total
SCSI cable length.
No stub connections are permitted.
The SCSI interface cabling used to interconnect an LD 6100 to a host can be daisy chained between SCSI
devices as illustrated below. One interface cable is required between each pair of SCSI devices.
(1)
The SCSI bus must also be
terminated at the host adapter
end. Normally, the termination
function is built into the host
adapter.
= TERMINATOR
Host-to-LD 6100 Daisy Chain Cable Connections
A terminator must be installed on the vacant connector of the last SCSI device in SCSI bus chain.
NOTE
You must first determine the type of termination your host system
requires (see the Accessories section).
In a daisy chain configuration, a terminator must be used on both the first and last devices on the bus. One
of these devices may be the host adapter.
PLASMON LASER MAGNETIC STORAGE - LD 6100 USER MANUAL
Page 42
All other LD 6100's between the first and last device in the daisy chain should not be terminated.
NOTE
Installation of both an active single-ended terminator and a passive
single-ended terminator on the same bus is not recommended.
With one LD 6100 attached to a host, the SCSI bus must be externally terminated at the host adapter and
the LD 6100 as illustrated in the figure below.
= TERMINATOR
LD 6100-to-Host Cable Connection
Normally, the termination function is built into the host adapter. Power for the external terminator is
supplied from the LD 6100 and may also be supplied from another device in the SCSI daisy chain.
Terminator power for external terminators is provided by the LD 6100 power supply.
Refer to the Accessories section of this manual for a list of SCSI bus terminators, cables and their Plasmon
LMS part numbers.
97654437 F
Page 43
CONNECTING POWER AND SCSI CABLES
After the LD 6100 has been installed in its operating location, follow these cable connection procedures:
The LD 6100 has two SCSI input/output (I/O) connectors on the rear panel that are used to interface the
drive with other SCSI devices. Either SCSI connector can be used as the input or output port because the
internal controller cable connection is common to both connectors.
CONNECTING THE POWER CORD
To install the power cord on an LD 6100:
1) Ensure that an AC power cord is available and ready for installation. The type of AC power
cord being installed depends upon the installation location.
2) Ensure facility power is available and the AC power cord connector (male end) will match
the site AC power wall outlet.
3) Ensure that the AC power switch on the LD 6100 rear panel is set to the OFF (O) position.
4) Plug the AC power cord connector (female end) into the AC power receptacle on the
LD 6100 rear panel.
5) Plug the AC power cord connector (male end) into a wall outlet.
Connecting the AC Power Cord (Rear Panel of Rack Mount Version
CONNECTING MULTIPLE DEVICES
To install SCSI interface cables for a multiple-device configuration
1) Ensure that the SCSI interface cables and a terminator (if required) are available and
ready for installation.
2) Plug one end of a SCSI interface cable into the vacant SCSI interface connector on the
previous device in the SCSI chain. Plug the other end of the cable into a SCSI
connector.
PLASMON LASER MAGNETIC STORAGE - LD 6100 USER MANUAL
Page 44
3) If the LD 6100 is not the last unit in the daisy chain, plug one end of the other cable into the
vacant connector on the LD 6100 and then connect the other end of the cable to the next
SCSI device. Repeat this process until you reach the last SCSI device in the daisy chain.
If the LD 6100 is the last unit in the daisy chain, install a terminator on the LD 6100's vacant SCSI
connector.
4) Ensure that the SCSI bus is also terminated at the host adapter end.
The SCSI bus must be terminated at both ends in accordance with the LD 6100/LF 6600/LF 6602 SCSI
Interface Specification (P/N 97653978).

TEST MODE
The LD 6100 automatically enters the Test mode each time it is powered on. Power-on selftest diagnostics
are run to verify the operational readiness of the drive.
After the LD 6100 successfully passes the power-on selftests, the LD 6100 enters the Operating mode.
While the LD 6100 is in the Operating mode, the operator may manually enter the Test mode and invoke
the system function diagnostics.
The level of selftest diagnostic coverage is configurable via the "Test Thru:" option in the Diagnostics
menu. Lower level tests (numbers 0 through 6) verify basic drive hardware operation.
When errors are detected, the appropriate diagnostic message will be displayed on the DOC. Diagnostic
messages are presented to the operator in the form of failed test codes and Field Replaceable Unit (FRU)
mnemonics that can be relayed to a CE for repairing the malfunction.
If no problems are detected by the system function diagnostics, the display will show "Diagnostics
Complete. Press TEST to restart drive...".
Pressing TEST resets "Test Thru:" value to 00 and initiates selftest again. At the successful completion of
the selftest, the LD 6100 is returned to the operating mode, ready for normal operation.

WECHSELSTROMERDUNG
Das Wechselstromkabel des LD 6100 legt den LD 6100 durch die Wechselstromversorgung an Erde. Die
Wechselstromversorgung des Standorts wiederum muß diese Erdung an einen Erdanschluß legen. Alle
Wechselstromverbindungen des Standorts müssen denselben Erdanschluß verwenden.
Der Erdanschlußteil an der Geräterückseite kann auch dazu verwendet werden, die Gehäuseerdung an
einen Erdanschluß zu legen. Dieser Erdanschlußteil ist ein 6 mm M4-Bolzen mit Mutter und
Sicherungsscheibe.
WECHSELSTROMKABEL
Die Art des Wechselstromkabels, das mit dem LD 6100 geliefert wird, hängt von der bestellten
Konfiguration ab.
SCHUTZFUNKTIONEN DER STROMVERSORGUNG
Die Stromversorgung des LD 6100 stellt Über- und Unterspannungsschutz, Überstromschutz,
Stromausfallerkennung und Übertemperaturschutz zur Verfügung. Sollte ein Parameter außerhalb des
Wertebereichs liegen, schaltet der LD 6100 die Gleichstromausgänge des Netzteils aus. Wenn die interne
Temperatur der Stromversorgung z.B. den Wert 80 C +/- 5 C erreicht, wird das Netzteil ausgeschaltet.
Nachdem das Problem korrigiert wurde, kann der Strom wieder eingeschaltet werden, indem der
Wechselstromschalter zuerst aus- (OFF) und dann wieder eingeschaltet (ON) wird.

KIPPTOLERANZ
Die LD 6100 Gestellmontagen-, Desktop- und Cygnet Jukebox-Konfigurationen ermöglichen den Betrieb
mit einer Kipptoleranz von 10 Grad aus der waagrechten Stellung. Die Turm- und FileNet JukeboxKonfigurationen ermöglichen den Betrieb mit einer Kipptoleranz von 10 Grad aus der senkrechten
Stellung. Der LD 6100 ist nicht für dynamisches Kippen konstruiert.
WÄRMEAUSSTRAHLUNG
Das Laufwerk weist während eines Schreib-Lese-Vorgangs eine typische Wärmeabgabe von 146 kcal/h
(BTU/h) auf. Wenn Datenträgerkassetten mit der Maximalgeschwindigkeit des Laufwerks eingelegt,
geladen, eingeschaltet, ausgeschaltet, entladen und entfernt werden, weist der LD 6100 eine typische
Wärmeabgabe von 182 kcal/h (725 BTU/h) auf.
GRENZWERTE FÜR DIE STAUBKONZENTRATION
Der LD 6100 ist für den Betrieb in einem Büro- oder Computerraum konstruiert. Die Umgebung muß
niedrige Staubwerte aufweisen. Der LD 6100 filtert die eingehende Luft, um die Menge an
Feststoffteilchen, die in das Laufwerk eintreten, zu vermindern. Dieser Filter ist jedoch gegen
kleine Teilchen (dazu gehört auch Tabakrauch), die sich auf den Datenträgern und optischen
Komponenten absetzen, nicht effektiv, was eine Verschlechterung der Laufwerksleistung zur Folge hätte.
WARNHINWEISE
Der LD 6100 ist als Lasergerät eingestuft. Als solches unterliegt es den US-amerikanischen
Anforderungen an Lasergeräte. Die in Abbildung 6 dargestellten Warnhinweise sind gemäß
Bundesverordnungen erforderlich und dürfen nicht vom LD 6100 entfernt werden.
WARNUNG
Um Personenverletzungen zu vermeiden, sind für das Auspacken,
Wiederverpacken und den Transport des LD 6100 zwei Personen
erforderlich. Der Versuch, den LD 6100 ohne Hilfe einer zweiten
Person
zu

weichen, trockenen, fusselfreien Tuch reinigen.
Weitere Informationen zur Pflege und Handhabung von Datenträgern finden Sie in der Spezifikation für
den LM 6000-Datenträger (Bestellnr. 97647044).
MANUELLER AUSLÖSEMECHANISMUS
Wenn der Strom oder das Laufwerk ausfällt, während sich eine Datenträgerkassette im Laufwerk befindet,
kann die Datenträgerkassette manuell entfernt werden. Drehen Sie die oberen und unteren manuellen
Aulöseknöpfe in die entsprechende Richtung, um die Grundplatten des Laufwerks zu öffnen, und
entfernen Sie dann die Datenträgerkassette. Abbildung 2 zeigt die Positionen der oberen und unteren
manuellen Auslöseknöpfe und die Richtung, in die jeder Knopf gedreht werden muß, um die Grundplatten
zu offnen.
VORSICHT
Wenn die Luftfilter nicht sauber gehalten werden, wird möglicherweise
der Luftstrom durch das Laufwerk reduziert. Dies kann zu erhöhten
Temperaturen im LD 6100 und dadurch zu einer Beschädigung des
LD 6100 führen.
AUSWECHSELN VON SICHERUNGEN
Wie in Abschnitt 2.8. des vorliegenden Handbuchs dargestellt, sind zwei Sicherungen und zwei
Ersatzsicherungen in die Netzbuchse an der Geräterückseite des LD 6100 eingebaut. Wenn sich das
Laufwerk nicht einschalten läßt, könnte eine oder beide Sicherungen durchgebrannt sein.
So tauschen Sie eine durchgebrannte Sicherung gegen eine Ersatzsicherung aus:
1) Stellen Sie den Wechselstromschalter des Laufwerks auf AUS (0), und ziehen Sie das
Netzkabel ab.
2) Fügen Sie einen kleinen Flachschraubenzieher zwischen dem Sicherungshalter und dem
Gehäuse der Buchse ein.
3) Öffnen Sie den Sicherungshalter vorsichtig. Ziehen Sie den Sicherungshalter aus der
Buchse heraus und überprüfen Sie die aktive Sicherung, um festzustellen, ob sie
durchgebrannt ist. Wenn die Sicherung durchgebrannt ist, fahren Sie mit Schritt 4) fort,
ansonsten mit Schritt 5).
4) Entfernen Sie die aktive Sicherung und entsorgen Sie sie. Nehmen Sie die
Ersatzsicherung aus deren Aufbewahrungsort und fügen Sie die Sicherung zwischen
dem Sicherungsgehäuse und der Halteklammer ein.
5) Installieren Sie den Sicherungshalter wieder in der Buchse; schieben Sie dabei den Halter
in die Buchse, bis der Halter bündig auf das Gehäuse der Buchse ausgerichtet ist.
6) Wenn die Stromversorgung nicht wiederhergestellt wird, prüfen Sie die andere Sicherung.
PLASMON LASER MAGNETIC STORAGE - LD 6100 USER MANUAL
Page 102
WARNUNG
Sollte eine Ersatzsicherung unmittelbar nach dem Ersetzen der
Originalsicherung entfallen, dürfen Sie diese Sicherung {U}nicht{D}
mehr ersetzen.
Wenden Sie sich an die nächste Stufe technischer Unterstützung.
Dies könnte das Symptom eines schwerwiegenderen Problems sein,
das entweder am Netzteil
des Laufwerks oder in der
Stromversorgung liegt.
REINIGUNG DES DATENTRßGERS
Die Oberflächen von Datenträgerplatten sollten regelmäßig untersucht und bei Bedarf gereinigt werden.
Benutzen Sie den Plasmon LMS Datenträger-Reinigungssatz (Teile-Nr. 97655378), um die
Plattenoberflächen zu reinigen. Der Reinigungssatz enthält einen kommerziellen Glasreiniger, ein
fusselfreies Tuch und eine Haltevorrichtung, um die Kassettentür offen zu halten.
Beide Seite (A und B) der Platte müssen durch die Klappenöffnungen der Datenträgerkassette gereinigt
werden, während die Platte noch im Laufwerk ist. Dazu wird die Kassettenklappe an jeder Seite der
Datenträgerkassette geöffnet.
Federhebel befinden sich am linken und rechten Rand der Datenträgerkassette. Drücken Sie diesen
Hebel nach unten um die Klappe auf einer Seite zu öffnen. Drehen Sie die Platte jeweils nur in eine
Richtung, und versuchen Sie, die Durchgänge zu überlappen, um sicherzustellen, daß die Platte
vollständig gereinigt wird.
So reinigen Sie die Magnetplatte:
1) Befeuchten Sie ein Tuch mit einem Glasreiniger.
2) Halten Sie die Datenträgerkassette mit einer Hand.
3) Ziehen Sie den Türhebel mit dem Zeigefinger Ihrer anderen Hand nach unten. Beachten
Sie, welche Seite (A oder B) Sie reinigen.
4) Halten Sie die Kassettentür an der Oberkante (wie in Abbildung 50 dargestellt) offen, und
installieren Sie die Haltevorrichtung, um die Tür offen zu halten.
5) Wischen Sie die Plattenoberfläche mit einem fusselfreien Tuch (das mit Glasreiniger
befeuchtet wurde) ab, beginnen Sie dabei in der Mitte und arbeiten Sie sich an den
äußeren Rand vor. Nur der Teil der Oberfläche, der bei geöffneter Kassettenklappe
sichtbar ist, kann bei jedem Durchgang gereinigt werden.
Achten Sie darauf, daß alle Teile der Platte gereinigt werden.
97654437 F
Page 103
Um eine Beschädigung der Oberfläche der Datenträgerplatte zu verhindern, achten Sie darauf, daß keine
groben Materialien oder harten Gegenstände mit der Platte während der Reinigung in Berührung kommen.
VORSICHT
Üben Sie beim Reinigen nur einen leichten Druck aus. Ein zu starker Druck kann dazu führen, daß sich
der vorhandene Staub in die Datenträgerplatte einfrißt und deren Oberfläche zerkratzt. Kratzer können
dazu führen, daß die Datenträgerplatte nicht mehr gelesen oder beschrieben werden kann.
6) Wiederholen Sie dieses Verfahren mit der anderen Seite der Platte.
