Abstract

In a floppy disk drive, the circuit card on which the spindle motor is mounted includes a number of sensors, such as the diskette-present sensor, the write-protect sensor and the track-zero sensor. These sensors are accurately located with respect to the frame of the disk drive by providing a rotational card locator on the frame.
