DIMENSIONS AND MOUNTING INFORMATION
3243W DIMENSIONS AND MOUNTING INFORMATION
The Micropolis 3243W (Wide, Single-Ended) and 3243WD (Wide, Differential) drives use industry-standard mounting for 3 1/2-inch "full-height" Winchester
disk drives. They are designed such that the outer frame should be hard-mounted to the host equipment; no additional or external shock mounts should be used.
Recommended orientation is vertical on either side, or horizontal with the Device Electronics board down; other mounting orientations may be used.
No matter what mounting orientation is used, Micropolis specifies that the maximum HDA temperature not exceed 60° C (140° F).
Mounting screws must not penetrate the bottom mounting holes by more than 0.20 inches, or the side mounting holes by more than 0.156 inches. Screws that are too long may short-circuit PCBA components.
