LVD / SE Terminator
LVD and SE Multi-mode Terminator
The T001 Terminator is for LVD ( Low Voltage Differential ) or SE ( Single Ended ) Termination. This terminator may connect an internal LVD cable and SCSI requires termination on both ends of the cable. The initiator ( normally host adapter ) supplier power to the terminator and must be capable of maintaining the minimum required voltage, at the terminator , of 4.25 volts for single- ended applications and 4.00 volts for differential applications. Most SCSI applications will work very well with one of the terminator.
The following steps will guide you to connect your terminator :
This T-001 is a 68-position Internal Terminator ( Female Type ) . Terminator must be present at both ends of the SCSI bus. The SCSI bus behaves as an electrical transmission line and must be properly terminated at each end to prevent reflections when signal reach the end of the bus. The magnitude of the reflections will depend on the impedance mismatch between the cable and the terminator.
