|Drive Addressing and Interface Termination
RN1 Interface Terminator
The Interface Terminator factory installed at RN1 will provide
proper termination for the interface lines. When daisy-chaining
multiple drives, leave the terminator installed only in the last
physical drive on the daisy chain; remove the terminator from
each of the other drives. In most PC/AT installations, the C:
drive is actually at the end of the cable and should retain the
DA1, DA2, DA3 Drive Address Jumpers
The drive address jumpers are identified as DA1, DA2 and DA3.
Address selection is binary, as shown in the table below. The
ESDI controller's documentation will specify the drive address
"Drive address 0" (no jumper at DA1, DA2, or DA3) is a "deselect"
(i.e., no drive selected). Drives are factory configured as Drive
Address 1. For many multiple drive installations, each drive must
have a unique address. An exception is that for every drive in
a PC/AT installation, verify that only Drive Address is at DA2;
move the jumper if necessary (the special twisted interface cable
that is generally used takes care of assigning a unique address
to each drive). PC/AT controller can typically support a maximum
of two drives.
W5 Selects the Spindle Control Option.
W5 selects the spindle a control option. If W5 is installed, the
drive waits for a Start Spindle command (after power is applied)
to start the spindle motor. If W5 is not installed (the factory
default configuration), the drive automatically starts the spindle
motor at power-on. W5 is not installed for PC/AT applications.
W1 Selects the Sectoring Mode.
If W1 is installed, the drive operates in the soft-sectored mode.
If W1 is not installed (the factory default configuration), the
drive operates in the hard-sector mode. W1 is not installed for
most PC/AT in applications.
W2, W3, W4 Sector Size Option
The number of bytes per sector may be specified using the Set
Bytes Per Sector command or by selecting a default sector
configuration with jumpers W2, W3, and W4 as follows:
* This is the default (factory installed) configuration and is recommended
for PC/AT applications
