Problem Description

During manufacturing, the wrong SCSI connector was used on some of the connector locations on the UBIC-H EIA panel.

Sampling has shown that less than 8 percent of UBIC-H EIA panels have one or more incorrect connectors.

Background

It was found that during the installation of a UBIC-H cable assembly on to a UBIC-H electrical interface adapter (EIA) panel, the cable assembly could not be seated on the SCSI connector.

Problem Symptoms

When trying to install the UBIC-H cable assemblies on some SCSI connectors of UBIC-H EIA panels, the connectors do not line up correctly. This prevents the user from turning up circuits on the ports associated with the incorrect SCSI connectors.

Workaround/Solution

Confirm proper SCSI connectors using one of the following tests:

TEST #1: UBIC-H cable assembly method
Install a UBIC-H cable assembly onto unused SCSI connectors
If the cable assembly's alignment pin fits into all the SCSI connectors, then the UBIC-H EIA panel is good.

TEST #2: Drill bit method
Slide the shank end of a #43 or #42 drill bit into one of the threaded holes on each unused SCSI connector.
If the drill bit slides in to all the connectors, the UBIC-H EIA panel is good.

TEST #3: #4-40 machine screw method
Thread a #4-40 machine screw into one of the threaded holes on each unused SCSI connector.
If the machine screw properly threads into all the connectors, the UBIC-H EIA panel is good.
