Important FCC
Information
This peripheral device generates and uses radio frequency energy, and if it
is not installed and used properly, that is, in accordance with this manual,
it may cause interference to radio and television reception. It has been type
tested and found to comply with the limits for a Class-A computing device
in accordance with the specifications in subpart J of part 15 of FCC Rules,
which are designed to provide reasonable protection against such
interference in a commercial installation. However, there is no guarantee
that interference will not occur in a particular installation. Operation of this
equipment in a residential area may cause interference and is up to you, at
your own expense, to take whatever measures may be required to correct
the interference. You can test to see whether this equipment does cause
interference with radio or television reception by turning the EconoPac off
and on while the receivers are on to see whether interference stops when
the drive is off. If the drive is causing interference, try to correct the problem
by one or more of the following measures:
•
Be sure you're using shielded interconnect cables.
•
Reorient the receiving antenna.
•
Relocate the drive with respect to the receiver.
•
Move the receiver away from the EconoPac, or vice versa.
•
Plug the computer into a different outlet so that the computer and receiver
are on different circuits.
If necessary, consult your dealer or an experienced radio/television
technician for additional suggestions. You may also find a booklet prepared
by the Federal Communications Commission helpful. It is entitled How to
Identify and Resolve Radio-TV Interference Problems. Request Stock No. 004000-00345-4, from the U.S. Government Printing Office, Washington, D.C.,
20402.

INTRODUCTION
1
Congratulations on purchasing what we think is the finest disk
subsystem on the market. Bering drives are built for years of reliable
service. We're sure you'll agree as you continue to work with your drive.
Bering EconoPac 7300 series drives are compatible with HP computer
systems with an HP-IB interface. In this manual we refer to the Bering
EconoPac subsystem as EconoPac and all HP systems as computer unless
otherwise indicated.
The Bering EconoPac 7000 Series is a subsystem consisting of a fixed
disk drive with fixed disk capacities ranging from 200 MegaBytes to 2.1
GigaBytes to meet the mass storage requirements of any operating
system. They have a 2.0 MB floppy disk drive.
Bering Technology offers the following EconoPac models:
•
•
•
•
Model 7320 — a 200MB fixed disk drive with a 2.0MB floppy drive
Model 7350 — a 500 MB fixed disk drive with a 2.0 MB floppy drive
Model 7310 — a 1 GB fixed disk drive with a 2.0 MB floppy drive
Model 7321 — a 2.1 GB fixed disk drive with a 2.0 MB floppy drive
The EconoPac subsystems provide fast, reliable storage that's always
available. The installation procedure is almost identical for all models.
No software or hardware modifications are required. All EconoPac
drives support the latest HP disk CS80 command set.

INTRODUCTION
Conventions in this Manual
1
Conventions in this
Manual
We'll use the following conventions to make the information more
precise:
•
Keys on the keyboard are indicated by capital letters enclosed in square
brackets, e.g., [ENTER], regardless of whether the characters on your
keys are actually capitalized. On the other hand, buttons on the
EconoPac are indicated by underlined capital letters alone followed by
the word button, e.g. POWER button.
•
A monospaced type font, like this, is used to convey text you should
see on your screen, e.g., “you'll see:
Welcome! on your monitor.”
•
The same font in contrast (either bold or regular) to the surrounding
text, like this, is used to present the exact characters or keys you are
to type or press, e.g., “type UTIL and press [ENTER] to continue.”
However, these keystrokes will not be typographically differentiated if
they are conditional or theoretical. That is, you have the option of
making one of several entries or we are speaking of hypothetical
situations, e.g., “If you type Y and press [ENTER] the disk will be
reformatted, but if you type N and press [ENTER] you will exit the
program.”
•
Commands, program, utility, and file names are capitalized to
distinguish them from the rest of the text. However, when in a command
line, they will be represented in lower case letters unless upper case
(capital) letters are actually required, e.g.
in text: “... use the TYPE command to read text files.”
to be typed:
type a:readme
•
Italics in any type face, like this, have a limited number of possible
meanings:
Words as words, letters as letters, or numerals as numerals, e.g., “the
word enter can be confused with the key on your keyboard, therefore
we will use type in its place.”
Titles of books, booklets, or disks, e.g., EconoPac 7300 User's Manual.
Symbolic of variable words, characters, or numerals. That is, something
must be in the variable's place, but the exact contents vary with different
situations and cannot be specified without knowing a particular
situation. Variable is not synonymous with optional. Frequently the
letter(s) n (for numerals), or x (for words or characters) are used to hold
the place of the variable, e.g., “the program will answer that there are n
widgets.” Note however, that a capital N is used for clarity when you
are to type the letter n usually to signify No even though you don't
actually have to capitalize the letter when you type it.

INSTALLING THE ECONOPAC DRIVE
This chapter describes the installation procedure for the EconoPac and
is divided into three sections. The “Quick-Start Procedure” section
enables experienced users to begin operation right away. The
“Connecting the EconoPac 7300 Drives” section helps new users
connect the disk drive to HP-IB based systems before going on to the
next chapter for additional operating instructions.
Quick-Start
Procedure
This section describes the quick-start procedure to set up the EconoPac
7300. Most of the parameters are already set at the factory. There may
be some adjustments necessary before the EconoPac can operate in your
particular environment. Refer to Chapter 5 for detailed instructions.
The default parameter settings are as follows:
Date/Time:
HP-IB address:
Emulation:
Default sector size:
CS80 format:
Pacific time
0
disabled
1024
enabled
1. Turn off your computer and connect the EconoPac.
If necessary, refer to the next section in this chapter.
2. Turn on the EconoPac and wait for the self-test to end.
When the test ends without incident, the time and date should be
displayed on the front panel LCD and the clock should be running.
3. Check the time and date. Adjust the clock if required.
4. Check the HP-IB address in the configuration function. Make sure all
devices on the HP-IB have a unique address.
5. Turn on your computer.
6. Initialize the disk and begin using the EconoPac.
▲ CAUTION:
Make sure that other equipment or appliances which might generate
electrical noise or a power surge (such as electric typewriters or heaters)
are on separate circuits.

Be sure that the outlets actually are grounded — that the third prong
really is connected to a ground. The EconoPac should be on the same
circuit as your computer.
▲ CAUTION:
Make sure that other equipment or appliances which might generate
electrical noise or a power surge are on separate circuits.
4. Turn on the EconoPac, the computer, and any other peripherals.

Loading a
Diskette
OPERATING THE DISK DRIVE
Loading a Diskette
Insert and remove floppy diskettes just as you would on a PC.
1. Hold the labeled edge of the disk between thumb and forefinger - the
label up, the metal shutter facing the drive slot, and the angled corner
of the disk on your right.
2. Insert the diskette into the drive slot with the label side up and the writeprotect switch toward you and push the diskette straight in, keeping it
parallel with the top and bottom of the drive, until it seats with a click.
Ejecting a
Diskette
It is important to remove the diskette before you turn off the EconoPac.
If you leave the diskette in the drive, the shutter remains open and the
recording media itself is vulnerable to dust and contamination.
1. To eject a diskette, depress the eject button until the diskette pops out.
Remember to label and date the diskette for future reference.
Write-Protecting
a Diskette
You may want to write-protect the floppy diskette after removing it
from the floppy drive. Write-protection prevents accidentally erasing
data on the diskette. The write-protection switch is located on the front
left edge of the diskette.

Figure 3-2: Write-protecting a diskette
1. To write-protect the floppy diskette, slide the tab away from the metal
shutter until the tab snaps into place.
A fingernail or the tip of a pen may prove useful in moving the tab.
When you can see through the rectangle this opens in the diskette, data
cannot be written to the cartridge and existing data cannot be erased
by any ordinary means.

CONFIGURING YOUR HP SYSTEM
This chapter describes how to configure different types of HP computer
systems for the EconoPac drive. It is divided into the following sections:
Formatting a Floppy, Series 800-HP-UX, HP 3000 MPE-V and HP 900 XL/
ix. Refer to the section which applies to your computer. The EconoPac
may be compatible with other HP operating systems. Please refer to the
operating system user manuals for details, or call Bering Technical
Support.
Each section describes how to boot the operating system from a floppy
diskette, prepare the fixed disk, install the operating system and
application software on the cartridge, and how to boot from the
EconoPac drive.
It is assumed that a built-in or external flexible disk drive is connected
to the computer. Other combinations of disk drives and peripherals
may require modifications of the procedures and settings.

Use the EconoPac controls to set the configuration options according
to the following settings. Refer to Chapter 4 for detailed instructions.
HP-IB address:
Default sector size:
MASS STORAGE
UNIT SPECIFIER
0-7
1024
The computer uses the Mass Storage Unit Specifier (MSUS) to identify
your disk drives. For example, the MSUS of an EconoPac might appear
as follows:
":CS80,700,0,0"
Note:
The MSUS is composed of four parts, separated by commas:
Device type: :CS80
Device selector: 700
Unit number:0 (default 0)
Volume number:0 (default 0)
The device type is optional with the BASIC 5.0 operating system. You
may type your MSUS as ":,700,1,4" leaving out the device type.
The device selector is the address of your EconoPac. The first digit is
the select code of your HP-IB interface. For the internal HP-IB it is usually
7. The last two digits are the HP-IB address of the EconoPac set by the
front panel control buttons. The range of addresses is from 00 to 07.

CONFIGURING YOUR HP SYSTEM
Series 200/300 - BASIC 5.0/6.0
For the Disk Interface card, which is normally select code 14, the MSUS
will be :CS80,1400,0.
For the EconoPac fixed disk, the unit number is always 0. Before you
can install your new EconoPac drive, you will need to load your BASIC
5.0 operating system into memory from the system disks. After loading
BASIC, the operating system can be installed on your EconoPac.
BOOTING YOUR
SYSTEM
If you will be sharing your disk with other operating systems such as
HP-UX or PASCAL, you should usually install the other operating system
before installing BASIC 5.0. Refer to “Installing, Using, and Maintaining
the BASIC 5.0 System” in your HP manual.
LOADING BASIC 5.0
The following procedure is to load BASIC 5.0 into memory. For further
information refer to the section in your BASIC 5.0 manual.
Note:
You also need to follow this procedure if your system is ROM-based.
1. Verify that the HP-IB address of your EconoPac is set as desired and that
the address is different from other disk drives (i.e., HP9121 micro-floppy
drive).
2. Turn off the computer.
3. Turn on the disk drives and wait for the self-test to complete.
4. Insert the BASIC system disk (disk 1) into a floppy drive.
5. Turn on the computer and hold down the [SPACE BAR].
All the bootable operating systems will be listed in the upper right hand
corner of the screen, e.g.
:HP7000,700,0,0

This chapter describes how to care for your EconoPac disk drive. It is
divided into two sections. The “General Safeguards” section tells you
what to look out for. The “Diskette Care” section explains how to handle
Diskettes. As long as you protect your EconoPac from hazards, it will
provide you with years of service.
General
Safeguards
You can preclude many problems by taking preventive measures.

Avoid overheating by placing the EconoPac where adequate airflow can
circulate around it. Be particularly careful to avoid blocking the cooling
vent at the rear of the unit.
Make sure it is plugged into a grounded electrical outlet. Verify that the
outlet is actually grounded. The EconoPac should be on the same circuit
as your computer.
Make sure that other equipment or appliances which might generate
electrical noise or a power surge (such as electric typewriters or heaters)
are on separate circuits.
Do not expose you EconoPac to extreme heat or cold. Prolonged
exposure to excessive heat, direct sunlight, or freezing conditions will
harm the drive.
Keep it away from moisture, dirt, and contaminants such as spilled
liquids, steam, or excessive dust. Do not smoke near the EconoPac.
Avoid exposure to magnetic fields such as those emitted by magnets,
speakers, or telephone equipment.
Avoid bumping the EconoPac while it is running.
Always set the EconoPac upright on a flat surface.
Do not transport the EconoPac with a diskette in the drive.
Use the spin-down and auto spin-down functions if the drive will not
be accessed for long periods of time. This will save wear and tear on
the drive spindle and promote a much longer life for the drive.
You don't need to worry about leaving the EconoPac on for a long time
- it doesn't use much power. It's normal for the drive to feel warm (but
not hot) after it's been running for a while.
If the EconoPac does get hot, make sure the fan is running properly, the
vent at the rear is not blocked, and that the unit is placed where plenty
of air can circulate around it.

Diskette Care
Diskettes are highly reliable and have a long service life if you care for
them properly.
•

Store them properly. Remove the diskette from the drive when you are
not using it and store it in a cool, dry, safe location.
Do not leave the diskette in the drive after it is powered down. This
leaves the diskette shutter open and makes the recording media
vulnerable to dust and humidity.
Keep your diskettes clean and dry and out of harm's way. Protect
diskettes from dirt, spills, and smoke. Never attempt to open the shutter
of the diskette since oil and dirt from your hands may be transferred
to the media or to the inside of the drive.
Use diskettes at correct temperatures - between 40°F (5°C) and 113°F
(40°C). If a diskette is exposed to temperatures outside the operating
limits, it should be stabilized to room temperature for a minimum of
two hours before use.
Do not expose the diskette to moisture, or prolonged direct sunlight.
Do not move the drive while a diskette is loaded.
Label the diskette clearly and ensure that the label is securely attached
before loading the diskette. Do not mark on labels with a graphite pencil.
The graphite dust may contaminate the media surface.

into three sections: “Before You Do Anything Else,” “Maintenance,” and
“Technical Support.”
Before You Do
Anything Else
Often, problems with disk drives can be resolved by using the following
check list.
•
Is the power cord securely connected to the EconoPac and to a wall
outlet?
•
Is the power switched on and the AC fuse in the back of the drive intact?
To check the fuse, use a screwdriver to open the fuse compartment on
the back of the EconoPac. If the fuse is blown, replace it with the spare
fuse in the compartment, or purchase a replacement of the same size
and type (“slow blow,” 1.6A, 250V).
•
•
•
•
Are any of the pins on the cable connectors loose, broken, or shorted?
Has the drive or floppy been properly formatted?
Are all cables installed correctly?
Is a floppy properly loaded in the EconoPac and was the drive up to
speed and on-line before you started your computer?
If you attempt to start up or otherwise access a floppy without a
diskette, the computer may not recognize the drive.
•
Maintenance
Does each device connected to the HP-IB chain have a unique address?
There are no user serviceable parts in the EconoPac. The outside case
of the EconoPac may be cleaned periodically with a damp cloth and a
mild detergent.
The floppy disk drive should be cleaned periodically with a standard
3.5 inch diskette cleaning kit, available from most computer supply
companies.
▲ CAUTION:
Never remove the cover of the EconoPac. This voids the warranty.
