These panels connect EDT PCI cards to standard cables through 68-pin high-density SCSI connectors, while the transition from the SCSI connector to twinax is made inside the panels, allowing the connector to interface E-3/T-3, E-1/T-1 or DATA and CLOCK channels.
SCSI connectors include Type A (50-pin) for 8-bit SCSI, Type P (68-pin) for 16-bit SCSI and an 80-pin high-density connector called a single connector attachment (SCA) or an SCA-2.
Note, too, that Very High Density Cable Interconnect (VHDCI) SCSI connectors typically do not accept the 28-gauge wire of most SCSI cables.
The WD Vantage hard drives are available in 50-, 68- and 80-pin SCSI connectors.
The fully cased CD-R56SK drive is a SCSI-2 based product that is powered from a standard IEC mains cable and provides two standard SCSI connectors for easy daisy chaining.
Two SCSI connectors are provided, allowing additional SCSI devices to be daisy-chained--up to six on a Mac and three on an Apple IIe.
Because the signal transmission is serialized through two differential pairs, the overall connector size is much smaller compared to previous SCSI connectors.
