Install EPIC/SCARLET Side Media Modules

Aluminum Side SSD Module Installation Notes

The aluminum side SSD modules attach to the camera using the same screws and tools, so you can easily switch between these modules. You can attach the aluminum side SSD modules using either of the following screws:

  • Black M3x0.5 x 6 mm cap screws: These screws come with the standard aluminum EPIC camera and ship with the DSMC 1.8" SSD Side Module, but can be used with either the aluminum EPIC or SCARLET.
  • Black M3x0.5 x 5.5 mm cap screws: These screws come with the standard aluminum EPIC SCARLET, but can be used with either the aluminum EPIC or SCARLET.

Carbon Fiber Side SSD Module Installation Notes

Attach the carbon fiber side SSD modules to the carbon fiber EPIC/SCARLET using only the red (colored) M3x0.5 x 6 mm cap screws that come with the carbon fiber EPIC/SCARLET. The red (colored) screws are made of a different material than the black screws that come with the standard aluminum camera, and are designed to engage specifically with the lightweight panels of the carbon fiber EPIC/SCARLET.

WARNING: DO NOT attach a carbon fiber side SSD module using any screws except the red (colored) screws that are provided. Using other screws, including the screws that come with the standard aluminum camera or side SSD modules, will strip the through holes and damage the panels of the carbon fiber EPIC/SCARLET.

WARNING: Damage to the camera, carbon fiber side SSD module, or other components of the camera system caused by using non-approved screws with the carbon fiber side SSD module is not covered under warranty, and may void the warranty for both the camera and the side SSD module.

WARNING: Damage to the camera, aluminum side SSD module, or other components of the camera system caused by mixing carbon fiber components with non-carbon-fiber components is not covered under warranty, and may void the warranty for both the camera and the side SSD module. For more information, go to Mixing Carbon Fiber and Aluminum Components.

Remove EPIC/SCARLET Side Media Modules

Follow the instructions in this section to remove any of the following modules from an EPIC or SCARLET camera:

  • RED MINI-MAG Side SSD Module
  • Carbon Fiber RED MINI-MAG Side SSD Module
  • DSMC 1.8" SSD Side Module
  • DSMC 1.8" SSD Side Module (DRAGON)
  • Carbon Fiber DSMC 1.8" SSD Side Module (DRAGON)

REQUIRED TOOLS: T10 TORX® driver

Inspect the connections and pins on the camera and ensure that they are clean and undamaged.

NOTE: DO NOT remove the two (2) red and black tamper-proof stickers.

  1. Turn off the camera.

  2. Use a T10 TORX driver to remove the four (4) cap screws that attach the module to the camera in a cross pattern (“X” pattern). The screw types for the side SSD modules are listed below:
    • Aluminum side SSD modules: Black M3x0.5 x 6 mm or M3x0.5 x 5.5 mm cap screws.

    • Carbon fiber side SSD modules: Red M3x0.5 x 6 mm cap screws that come with the carbon fiber EPIC/SCARLET.
     
  3. Remove Screws

Attach EPIC/SCARLET Side Media Modules

Follow the instructions in this section to attach any of the following modules to an EPIC or SCARLET camera:

  • RED MINI-MAG Side SSD Module
  • Carbon Fiber RED MINI-MAG Side SSD Module
  • DSMC 1.8" SSD Side Module
  • DSMC 1.8" SSD Side Module (DRAGON)
  • Carbon Fiber DSMC 1.8" SSD Side Module (DRAGON)

WARNING: DO NOT attach the carbon fiber side SSD module using any screws except the red screws that are provided. Using other screws, including the screws that come with the standard aluminum camera or side SSD modules, will strip the through holes and damage the panels of the carbon fiber EPIC/SCARLET. For more information, go to Install EPIC/SCARLET Side Media Modules.

WARNING: Damage to the camera, side SSD module, or other components of the camera system caused by mixing carbon fiber components with non-carbon-fiber components is not covered under warranty, and may void the warranty for both the camera and the side SSD module. For more information, go to Mixing Carbon Fiber and Aluminum Components.

REQUIRED TOOLS: T10 TORX® driver

  1. Place the side media module on the camera, so that the mounting holes of the module align with the screw holes of the camera.

  2. Use a T10 TORX driver to tighten the four (4) screws by about two (2) turns in a cross pattern (“X” pattern). DO NOT FULLY TIGHTEN.

    The screw types for the side SSD modules are listed below:

    • Aluminum side SSD modules: Black M3x0.5 x 6 mm or M3x0.5 x 5.5 mm cap screws.

    • Carbon fiber side SSD modules: Red M3x0.5 x 6 mm cap screws that come with the carbon fiber EPIC/SCARLET.

    Tighten Screws

    Figure: Tighten Screws

  3. Tighten the four (4) cap screws evenly. DO NOT exceed 70 in-oz, or damage may occur.

    WARNING: DO NOT OVERTIGHTEN.

  4. Insert the SSD in the SSD slot on the back of the side media module:

    • RED MINI-MAG module: Install the RED MINI-MAG.
    • DSMC 1.8" SSD Side Module: Install the REDMAG 1.8" SSD.

    NOTE: DO NOT attempt to insert the RED MINI-MAG in any DSMC 1.8" SSD Side Module, and do not attempt to insert the REDMAG 1.8" SSD in any RED MINI-MAG module.

Install the Rear SSD Module

The Rear SSD Module attaches to the EPIC/SCARLET the same way that the other rear modules attach to the camera.

NOTE: DO NOT attempt to insert the RED MINI-MAG in the Rear SSD Module.
