Mother Board S3210SHLC - Connecting Front Panel Wires to where on the 24 Pin Header?


HI All:

We need some help with signal name terminology for the Front Panel Connector ( Header) on a S3210SHLC Server Board. See the attached Jpeg for a screen shot of the connector on the board. Can anybody convert the signal names listed to more generic descriptions?

Secondly, We are using a server enclosure that has the tradition single wires (2 conductor) coming from the front panel. Each is labeled "Power SW", "Reset", "Power LED", Device 1-6 etc. We want to confirm our logic for connecting each wire.

If you look at Pin 11 on the "24-Pin header PinOut", the name is "FP_SW_ON_HDR_N". Question >> Do we connect our power switch cable (which should be both negative polarity) to pins # 11 & to # 9 to complete the circuit? (Pin 9 is labeled "LED_HD_N")

The same question / Theory applies to the rest. Do we connect our remaining wires to the same physical grouping? eg, 1+3 5+7 13+15 and so on?

Thanks in advance

Michael - one of the PME's had to do some testing (as we dont use '2 pin desktop implementation). Anyway, hoping this gives you the answer you needed, so try this - and reply back if it doesnt give you what you need - or if you have any further problems.


Power Switch = 11 (FP_SW_ON_HDR_N), 13 (GND) Reset = 15 (FP_RST_FPHDR_N), 17 (GND) Power LED = FP_PWR_LED_P1, 1, 5 HDD LED = P3V3 (7) and LED_HD_N (9)
