SCSI Connector Question

By jackiestinson ·
If there is a terminator at the end of the cable and two connectors and I have one device, which connector should I use and do I need another terminator if the doc says the device is self-terminating?

You normally don't have to worry about terminating with modern SCSI, especially if it's labeled "self-terminating". In the old days you did have to worry.

As George said you don't need to worry about terminators and as for which plug to us I would say the one that best suits your needs. I personally try not to have large coils of SCSI Cables in the case where they can touch a Fan or something hot but that's my personal preference.

You can use either to connect the SCSI device to. About the only possible problem is if the SCSI Card has several different connectors on it for the same channel it's then possible to have the same SCSI ID for 2 devices on the same Channel but if you only have the one device it shouldn't matter where it goes on the lead.
