The DLT 7000 has three configurable options that may require modification based on user requirements. These options are:

SCSI ID (Default setting = ID 5)
Parity checking (Default = parity checking enabled)
TERMPWR (Termination power, default = enabled)

The following provides information on how to change these settings, refer to the drive diagrams provided to insure proper orientation.

The SCSI ID block has 10 pins arranged in two rows of 5, top row is odd numbered and the bottom row is even. Set the ID values according to chart 1-1 by placing a jumper across the appropriate set of pins. Please note that for this block setting to register with the drive a jumper must be in place across pins 9-10.
