PERC 3/DC Cable Installation

This document provides updated information for installing the Dell PowerEdge Expandable RAID 
Controller 3/Dual Channel (PERC 3/DC) in your Dell PowerEdge 1550 or PowerApp 120 system.

The PERC 3/DC kit included with your system contains two small computer system interface (SCSI) 
cables that connect your PERC 3/DC card to the internal SCSI backplane board in your system. A 
description of these cables and their application is provided in Table 1.

To avoid interference with system components and operation, be sure to use the short SCSI cable 
when installing the PERC 3/DC card in your PowerEdge 1550 or PowerApp 120 system.

WARNING: Before you install the PERC 3/DC card, you must turn off the system and dis-
connect it from the electrical outlet. For more information, see “Safety First—For You and 
Your Computer” in the System Information
 document that came with your system.
