Press Release Summary:
Inserted in series between SCSI interface devices, Model 800 HSSI Interface Breakout Box provides access to and monitoring of all data, timing, and control signals. There are 50 numbered test points on unit that are connected directly to 50 pins of both HSSI/SCSI-2 connectors. Mini patchcords plug into test points on box and allow access to corresponding connector pin, which can in turn be connected to scope probe, data analyzer, voltage meter, or other diagnostic instrument.
Original Press Release:
Access & Monitor Signals with Model 800 HSSI Breakout Box
Electro Standards Laboratories, Cranston, RI, announces the Model 800 HSSI (SCSI-2) Interface Breakout Box. The Model 800 HSSI (SCSI-2) Interface Breakout Box is a tool designed to monitor all signals of the SCSI-2 interface. It is simply inserted in series between SCSI interface devices to provide access to and monitoring of all data, timing, and control signals. Fifteen one-foot mini patchcords that plug into the test points on the box are provided to facilitate access to signals passing through between connected devices.
A handy HSSI 50-pin Micro-D Connector pinout table is located on the Model 800 inside cover panel. The Model 800 is a passive device implemented using connectors and circuit board circuitry. It requires no tuning or adjustments.
There are fifty numbered test points on the unit. They are connected directly to the 50 pins of both HSSI / SCSI-2 connectors. The test points serve as access points for signals that are being passed between connected devices. The mini-patchcords allow easy access to the corresponding connector pin, which can in turn be connected to a scope probe, data analyzer, voltage meter or other diagnostic instrument. The Model 800 HSSI connectors (SCSI-2 mini-50) are (female) 50-pin SCSI-2.
