SA 455 & SA 465 Minifloppy Disk Drive - Manual

From the introduction:

'The SA455/465 Minifloppy Disk Drives are enhanced double-headed, half-height versions of the Shugart SA400 minifloppy drives. The SA455/465 provides up to four times the on-line storage capacity, faster access time, and improved reliability and maintainability.'

We are uncertain whether these drives were designed for specific systems.  This manual appears to come from a larger document, as the page number count begins in the 300s.

60 pages.
