The 5086 SCA Adaptor is a connector
adaptor which allows the user to
connect an 80-pin SCA SCSI drive to
an existing 68-pin cable.
There are connections for the data
cable, power cable, and there are
drive ID jumpers.
This product comes in three models:
P/N 5086 is the basic adaptor;
P/N 5086-HBT is the adaptor with built-in
High-Bit termination. This is only
used when you have a 50-pin
terminator on a 68-pin bus.
P/N 5086-LVD is the adaptor for LVD SCSI,
and is also compatible with regular.
P/N 5086-HBT features "High-Bit Termination",
which means that unused pins are terminated rather
than left open; this increases performance and
reliability, -IF- these pins are not used - however,
if you are using these lines and do not want them
terminated, use P/N 5086.
Generally speaking, if your controller is a 50-pin,
use the HBT version; if your controller is a 68-pin,
use the basic or non-terminated version.
