No need.  If you are talking about the Multipack 2 (i.e. the 6 bay
version), well, it says UltraSCSI on the front, and that's what it is.

Two of the Multipacks are 6 bay and one is the 12 bay. The drives that I have to install in them are all low voltage which is why I need the low voltage card to run them (I've got 18 146GB LVD SCA drives waiting to go in them).

I find the Wikipedia table very helpful:


If you have a 68 to 50 pin cable you could theoretically also hook the
Multipack up directly, but then you'll need to be careful about SCSI
IDs, as the IPX and SS20 have max 8 targets on their narrow SCSI bus.

There are nice SBus cards with an extra hme and "Fast Wide" SCSI (X1018A,
501-2739).  :-)

I've seen that card but I can never seem to find any documentation that would tell me if it was a low voltage or a high voltage card.
