Auto Start
----------
The -Auto Start signal will be used to determine if the spindles
should be powered on following a power on or reset condition. Without
the shunt in place, the spindles can only be spun up by SCSI command.

Target SCSI Termination Power
-----------------------------
The Target TermPwr shunt will directly connect a fused voltage supply
of termination power to the appropriate pins on the SCSI connector.
This indication cannot be sensed by the initiator.

Write Protect
-------------
The Write Protect feature allows the customer to insure that no
customer data will be overwritten via SCSI command. The feature is
controlled by a jumper on the Allicat S20 option block. The status
of the jumper can be sensed via the MODE SENSE command, page 0
(Vendor Unique), byte 9.

If the Write Protect jumper is in place, the drive will generate a
Condition Check Status for the following commands.

- Write (6) command 0Ah
- Write (10) command 2Ah
- Write and Verify command 2Eh
- Write Long command 2Eh
- Reassign Blocks 07h
- Format Unit 04h
- Sync Cache 35h

The sense data will show a sense key of Data Protect (7h) with a
sense code and data of Write Protected (2700h). Although customer
data will not be written, the drives reserved area will be updated
with data such as mode select data, error logs, microcode loads, etc.

SCSI Bus Termination Power
--------------------------
Termination power is optionally provided for systems that desire to
use it. In order to use the Allicat S20 termination power, the user
needs to install a jumper between pins 07 and 08 of the Option block.
The jumper only needs to be installed on the last device on the SCSI
bus (i.e. the file that is physically closest to the terminator).
Allicat S20 can source up to 2.0 Amps of current at 5.0 Volts ( 5%)
for termination power.

Mounting
--------
The drive can be mounted with any surface facing down as listed
below.

- Bottom Side Down
- Top Side Down
- Right Side Down
- Left Side Down
- Rear Side Down
- Front Side Down

Four mounting holes are provided on the bottom of the drive, and two
mounting holes are provided on each side of the drive.

 The torque applied to the mounting screws must be 1.0 Newton-meters
   0.1 Newton-meters.

The maximum screw penetration is 7.5 millimeters.

Clearances
----------
The Allicat S20 drive contains all sway space internal to the form
factor. Therefore, no sway space clearance is required. However,
adequate clearance is required around the drive to assure the airflow
needed to maintain component temperatures.

Power Connector
---------------
The DC power connector is designed to mate with AMP part 1-480424-0
using AMP pins part 350078-4 (strip) or part 61173-4 (loose piece),
or their equivalent.

50-Pin SCSI Bus Connector
-------------------------
The SCSI signal connector is a 50-pin connector, MOLEX p/n 70247
(right angle) meeting ANSI/SCSI specification.

68-Pin SCSI Bus Connector
-------------------------
The SCSI signal connector is a 68-pin connector HONDA part number
PCS-XE68SLFDUNG1-HSU2 meeting ANSI/SCSI specifications.

Compatibility of 50 Pin and 68 Pin SCSI Connectors
--------------------------------------------------
Note that the "P" connector is not compatible with the 50-pin "A"
connector as defined in the ANSI/SCSI-2 standard. Therefore system
cables used with 50 pin products cannot be plugged directly into the
Allicat S20 68 pin models.

Despite the difference in connector, the Allicat S20 68 pin models
are electrically compatible with Allicat S20 50 pin models and other
50 pin single ended SCSI products and therefore can coexist on the
same bus. In order to do so, the difference in connector types would
need to be accounted for in the cable.

Single Ended SCSI Cable
-----------------------
The Allicat S20 disk drive uses single ended drivers and receivers
which will permit cable lengths of up to 6 meters (19.68 feet). It
should be noted however that users who plan to use Allicat S20 in
fast mode should follow all of the SCSI-3 guidelines for single ended
fast operations. This may include a cable length of less than 6
meters.

The SCSI-2 standard states that the total stub of the cable must not
exceed 0.1 meters. This drive has a maximum internal stub length of
0.082 meters on all SCSI signals. To remain compliant with ANSI, the
SCSI bus cable must not add more than 0.018 meters addtional stub
length to all SCSI signals.

 Single-Ended SCSI Bus Termination
 ---------------------------------
 Allicat S20 has no internal SCSI bus terminators. The system is
 responsible for properly terminating the SCSI bus. A regulated 110
 Ohm terminator is recommended for reliable fast operations (i.e.
 transfer speeds greater than 5MB transfer/sec.). Split resistor or
 regulated terminations may be used for systems that do not plan data
 transfers. Some of the terminator possibilities for Allicat S20 are
 listed in the following table.
 +---------------+--------------------------+------------------------+
 |Data Transfer  | 50 Pin Model Terminators |68 Pin Model Terminators|
 |Rates          |                          |                        |

SCSI Bus Termination Power
--------------------------
Termination power is optionally provided for systems that desire to
use it. In order to use the Allicat S20 termination power, the user
needs to install a jumper between pins 07 and 08 of the Option block.
The jumper only needs to be installed on the last device on the SCSI
bus (i.e. the file that is physically closest to the terminator).
Allicat S20 can source up to 2.0 Amps of current at 5.0 Volts ( 5%)
for termination power.

Single Ended SCSI Bus Recommendations For Noise Reduction
---------------------------------------------------------
The SCSI commitee has spent a large amount of resource looking into
what needs to be done to assure SCSI devices will work as specified
in the SCSI-2 standard. As a result of this, the committee is
recommending what is being called the 123 approach to reducing noise
problems. This approach is:

 1. Use the regulated 110 ohm terminator
 2. Use AWG 28 polyolefin shielded cables
 3. Make sure data and parity are on the outer ring of the cable and
    that REQ and ACK are in the core of the cable.

IBM SCSI INSTALLATION

SCSI Installation Guide Generic

Installation requirements
-------------------------
To install a drive inside your computer or in an external storage
enclosure for SCSI devices, you must have:

 1 The documentation that came with your computer or storage
   enclosure.

2 The documentation that came with your hard drive.

3 A small, flat blade screwdriver.

 4 A SCSI controller, which is either built into the system board or
   on an adapter inside your computer.

 5 An installation kit, if it is required for your computer. Contact
   your place of purchase if you are not sure.

 6 If you are installing this into a PS/2 computer, you will also need
   the up-to-date backup copy of your reference diskette and
   diagnostic diskette.

WARNING: Do not open the static-protective bag containing the drive
until instructed to do so. Static electricity can damage the drive.

Hardware and software considerations
Operating system
----------------
The operating system and hardware are two of the factors that
determine the number of drives a computer can support. The manuals
for your computer and operating system can help you to determine the
number and type of hard disk drives you can use.

Power supply
------------
Two factors that determine the number of internal drives that a
computer or SCSI storage enclosure can support are:

1 The available current of the power supply

2 The nominal operating current of each drive installed

Most computer power supplies have output over-current protection. If
the total allowed current is exceeded, the power supply shuts down.
The computer must be turned off and turned on again.

SCSI ID Each SCSI device connected to a SCSI adapter must be assigned
a unique SCSI identification number (ID). The ID you assign to this
device depends on the number of SCSI devices connected to the SCSI
adapter and the SCSI IDs already assigned to those devices.

Note: All IBM SCSI controllers support SCSI IDs 6 through 0. (ID 7 is
used for the SCSI controller.) Some SCSI controllers support SCSI IDs
15 through 8. If your SCSI controller supports more than seven
devices, then you can use SCSI IDs 15 through 8. If you are not sure
if your SCSI controller supports more than seven devices, refer to
the documentation that came with your SCSI controller for
information.

If you have an IBM PS/2 computer, you can view your SCSI ID settings
by accessing the system programs. From the main menu, select Set
configuration. The select Set and view SCSI configuration.
Other computers might have utility programs that enable you to view
the SCSI configuration, or you might have to physically inspect the
installed SCSI devices to see how the IDs are set. For more
information, refer to the documentation that came with your computer
or SCSI controller.

Handling precautions
--------------------
1 Turn off all attached devices first; then turn off the computer.

 2 Unplug all the power cords from electrical outlets before starting
   installation.

 3 Disconnect all power cables from your computer and attached devices
   before starting installation.

 4 Limit your movement. Movement can cause static electricity to build
   up around you.

5 Handle the drive carefully and by the edges.

6 Do not touch any exposed printed circuitry.

7 Prevent other people from touching the components or the drive.

 8 When you are installing the drive, touch the static-protective
   package containing the drive to a metal expansion-slot screw or
   other unpainted metal surface on the computer, for at least 2
   seconds. (This drains static electricity from the package and your
   body.)

 9 When possible, remove the drive and install it directly into the
   computer without setting it down. If this is not possible, place
   the drive, component side up, on the static-protective bag on a
   flat surface until the drive is installed.

10 Do not place the drive on the computer cover or on a metal table.

Installing the drive
--------------------
These instructions guide you as you install the drive inside your
computer or storage enclosure.

Step 1. Setting the jumpers and terminators

 Note: Be sure you have chosen the SCSI ID before continuing. If you
       did not yet choose the SCSI ID, go to "SCSI IDs" above, then
       return here. Follow these steps to set the SCSI ID to match
       your chosen SCSI ID.

 1 Touch the static-protective bag containing the drive to a metal
   expansionslot cover on the computer. This drains any static
   electricity from the package and your body.

 2 Remove the drive from the static-protective bag, holding the drive
   by the edges. Do not touch any exposed components on the drive.

3 Place the drive on the bag, on a flat surface.

 4 When the Auto Start feature is enabled, the hard disk drive motor
   starts as soon as the computer is turned on. Locate the Auto Start
   jumper by referring to the documentation that came with your drive.
   If the Auto Start jumper is not in place, the hard disk is started
   by a command from the SCSI controller. For drives installed in
   IBM computers or storage enclosures ensure that this jumper is off.
   The hard disk drive is started in a staggered sequence. This
   reduces the start-up load on the power supply. For non-IBM
   computer, refer to the documentation that came with your
   computer for further information.

 5 Set the SCSI ID that you selected. To remove a jumper, pull it
   straight off. To install a jumper, line up the two holes in the
   jumper with the appropriate two pins on the drive. Then push the
   jumper onto the pins until it is completely seated and covers
   both pins.

 6 Store any jumpers you do not use in a safe place, in case you need
   to change the SCSI ID for this drive later. WARNING: If you have
   extra jumpers, do not store them on any of the extra pins on the
   connector. Storing them on a set of pins could damage the drive.

Step 2. Connecting the terminator
The location of the drive you are installing inside the computer or
storage enclosure determines whether you need to connect a terminator
or put a jumper on the Enable Active Termination pins. Read the
information in the following table to determine if you must install
the terminator. For more information about termination, refer to the
documentation that came with your computer.

Note: A SCSI chain of devices consists of multiple SCSI devices
connected by a SCSI cable to a SCSI controller.

If the hard disk drive is: Then:
The last physical device on a SCSI chain of Install the terminator
devices inside the computer.

The last physical device on a SCSI chain of Install the terminator
devices inside an external storage enclosure.

Step 3. Enabling term power
If your drive has a jumper for term power and your SCSI controller is
suppling term power, (check with the manufacturer of your controller)
then you do not need to enable the term power. The jumper should be
off. For help in locating the term power jumper, refer to the
documentation that came with your drive.

Step 4. Installing the drive
For the specific information on installing a hard disk drive, refer
to the documentation that came with your computer. You will be
required to mount the drive inside your computer, and connect signal
and power cables to the hard drive. When installed in an enclosure,
the drive is attached by cable to the external connector of a SCSI
controller. The controller can be either on a SCSI adapter or built
into the system board inside of your computer.

Note: Be sure to use the correct screws provided with your drive.
Using the wrong ones might cause damage to the drive.

Step 5. Completing the installation procedure
The installation of the drive is complete. Reinstall the cover on the
computer or storage enclosure. Store these instructions and any extra
parts in a safe place in case you change your configuration.

After installing your hard disk drive, use the information that came
with your computer to reconfigure your system. When you power on your
system, turn on all attached devices first; then turn on the
computer.

If you have any problems at this point, turn off all attached
devices; then, turn off the computer and check that:

1 The cables are installed correctly

2 No options or cables are loose

3 The SCSI ID is properly set

4 No two SCSI drives have the same SCSI ID

5 The terminators are properly installed

Turn on all attached devices; then, turn on the computer. If you
still have a problem, refer to the troubleshooting information in the
documentation that came with your computer.

Step 6. Update configuration
Whenever you add or remove an option from your computer, you must
update the configuration information. Your computer might have an
automatic configuration program, or you might have to follow a
specific procedure. For more information, refer to the documentation
that came with your computer.

Step 7. Preparing the drive for use
Having successfully installed the hard disk drive, you need to
prepare it for use. Depending on the operating system you are using,
you might need to partition then format the hard disk. Refer to the
documentation that came with your operating system for information on
how to format your new drive. To make the drive just installed your
primary drive, you might need to create a new system partition on the
drive. For information on creating a new system partition, refer to
the documentation that came with your operating system.

Troubleshooting
---------------
You might be able to solve a problem yourself. Before calling IBM,
you might want to try some or all of the following troubleshooting
procedures.

1 Remove and reattach all drive cables

2 Remove and reseat the drive

3 Place the drive in a different slot, if one is available

 4 If your drive contains jumpers or switches, check that they are set
   as specified

 5 Reread any software instructions; be sure software settings are
   correct

6 Inspect the drive for damage, such as bent pins

 7 Check the computer manual for instructions about the installation
   of upgrades. Look for a section about system setup or system
   configuration. Follow all procedures.

 8 After completing these steps, reassemble the computer and connect
   the power cord.

If you are still having problems and want to call IBM technical
support, have available as much of the following information as
possible:

1 Drive model or P/N and description

2 Computer manufacturer and model

3 Exact wording of error message (if any)

4 Description of the problem

 5 Hardware and software configuration information for your system
   If possible, be at your computer. Your technical support rep might
   want to walk you through the problem during the call.
