Undocumented SA-E200/128 connectors

Hi to all,

Does anybody know what the purpose is the following connectors:
- J5 on the SA-E200 board (above the led stip)?
- the white connector on the top of the BBWC board?
- the printboard sliding connector (three copper lanes) on the top of the BBWC board?

I can't find any information or documentation about it.

Thanks in advance,

hi

R. Lichtendahl apart of the documentation on e200 controller PDF manual that maybe you already have the rest would be someone that has some real experience

Re: Undocumented SA-E200/128 connectors

Hi Karlo,

Sorry but i don't understand your reply completly. :(

I'm aware of the pdf documentation of the e200 card, but after reading it serveral times i can't find the purpose of the J5 (i would guess or think that this is a connector to hookup the e200 card to the server's motherboard for the HD-LED or something).

Can you try to explain some more?

PS. the "don't understand" comes from my side not your side, im thinking that it's caused by the language difference. :)

J5 on the E200 (at the upper corner near the back plate) is for the mohterboard HD LED connector.
I don't know the function of the other connectors you mentioned.

Re: Undocumented SA-E200/128 connectors

Hi Andrew and Karlo,

Yesterday i have looked at the copper lanes of the J5 and came to the conclusion that this MUST be a HD led connector.

After searching the ML110G5 manual i found a topic wish confirms my toughts.

Very strange (if you ask me) that this connector is NOT mentioned in the E200 manual.

I hookup the led-cable and it works.

So guys (and girls offcourse) thank you.

Re: Undocumented SA-E200/128 connectors

Hi,

I would quess that the white connector on the BBWC board is for connecting an external battery (to avoid data loss when the memory contains data and the battery on the back needs to be replaced)

I would guess that the three copper lanes sliding connector on the BBWC board is for debug/testing the board (by HP people).

But these are quesses from my side, maybe someone can confirm this.
