I talked with Rolf, and asked if we were using Megatron for IO. The gist boiled down to we (the 40m) needed to use it for something, so yes, use it for the IO computer. In regards to the other end station computer, he said he just needed a couple of days to make sure it doesn't have anything on it they need and to free it up.
I had a chat with Jay where he explained exactly what boards and cables we need. Adapter boards are 95% of the way there. I'll be stopping by this afternoon to collect the last few I need (my error this morning, not Jays). However it looks like we're woefully short on cables and we'll have to make them. I also acquired 2 D080281 (Dsub 44 x2 to SCSI).
For each 2 Pentek DACs plus a 110B, you need 1 DAC adapter board (D080303 with 2 connectors for IDC40 and a SCSI). You also need a D080281 to plug onto the back of the Sander box (going to the 110Bs) to convert the D-sub 44 pins to SCSI.
LSC will need none, SUS will need 3, IO will need 1, and the ends will need 1 each. We have a total of 6, we're set on D080303s. We have 3 110Bs, so we need one more D080281 (Dsub44 to SCSI). I'll get that this afternoon.
For each XVME220, we'll need one D080478 binary adapter. We have 8 XVME220s, and we have 8 boards, so we're set on D08478s.
For the ends, there's a special ADC to DB44/37 adapter, which we only have 1 one of. I need to get them to make 1 more of these boxes.
We have 1 ADC to DB37 adapter, of which we'll need 1 more of as well, one for IO and one for SUS.
However, for each Pentek ADC, we need a IDC40 to DB37 cable. For each Pentek DAC we need an IDC40 to IDC40 cable. We need a SCSI cable for each 110B. I believe the current XVME220 cables plug directly in the BIO adapter boxes, so those are set.
So we need to make or acquire 11 IDC40 to DB37 cables, 7 IDC40 to IDC40 cables, and 3 SCSI cables.
