New Ultra 2 SCSI LVD drives available in 68-Pin wide configurations do not have active SCSI termination, therefore, external termination is required to terminate the SCSI bus.
Ultra 2 SCSI (LVD) drives can operate in two modes, single ended mode (LVD mode) or low voltage differential mode. A terminator is required to terminate the SCSI bus either in single ended mode or LVD mode depending on the users' choice.
Trans Intl's new 68-Pin to 68-Pin mutimode terminator provides a cost effective solution to terminate 68-Pin Ultra 2 SCSI LVD drives with minimum cost and limited space. It automatically senses the operating mode of the drive (single ended or LVD mode) and supplies proper termination to the drive depending on the operating characteristics.
