NEW SCSI Bus Converter
This auction is for one NEW, Model SED-616M Single-Ended to/from Differential (HVD) to SCSI (Fast/20)
SCSI devices typically use either Single-Ended (SE) or Differential (HVD) interfaces, which cannot be mixed on the same bus. Ancot's SED converters allow interconnection of these two interfaces. By using Ancot's SED converters, a SCSI Host Bus Adapter with a Single-Ended (or HVD) interface can communicate with a mix of peripherals, some with Single-Ended, and some with Differential (HVD) interfaces. The SED converters can also be used in RAID environments or jukeboxes to isolate the internal and external SCSI bus segments. The SED converter operates bi-directionally.
Ancot's SED converters can also be used as inexpensive SCSI bus extenders. All signals on Ancot's SED converters are received and subsequently regenerated, thus allowing extension of the maximum cable length. To achieve maximum transfer rates, the SCSI specification recommends a maximum cable length of 6 meters (SE) or 25 meters (HVD). By using the Ancot SED converters, users can extend those distances and still achieve high transfer rates. For example, with two SED converters connected back-to-back, the length of the SE Fast/10 SCSI bus can be extended by another 25 meters (HVD branch) plus 6 meters (the second SE branch) to a total of 37 meters.
