Just for info., there are two distinctly different SCSI interfaces, single-
ended and differential. These are different electrically (voltage levels
essentially), but LOGICALLY are the same.
Make sure your SCSI host is the same (i.e. diff. or single-ended), or you
could a slight funcrional impass (i.e. bang sizzle, sizzle).
Apart from that, there are 3 different connectors, but all have the same
signals. SCSI A-connectros, B and C.
'A' connectors look crude to modern eyes - not very technical I know, but
can't think how to describe them. NCR don't use these anymore.
'B' connectors look like large centronics plugs. NCR PC925/PC386 use these.
'C' connectors are like miniature 'd' connectors. NCR System 3000's use
You can get 'B' to 'C' converter cables - we've got one.
Hope this is of some general use.
