7012 Common Devices

Serial Ports on Models 320, 32E, 32H (520, 530, 540, and 550 plus 930 and 950)

Note: Please check your ports before getting a MODU cable. I have seen systems identified as -320, but with DB25 ports in the "Plate" location.

MODU connector to an RJ-45 plug 00G0943 or 59F3740 Original HERE 

The adapter is a 14 inch cable with a female MODU connector on one end and a male DB25 connector on the other. The cable has an IBM part number (or an FRU) of either 00G0943 or 59F3740. To quote again from the IBM RT FAQ, question H.10:

NOTE: Metering the IBM RS6000 stubby cable P/N 00G0943 matches this pinout.

7012 SCSI Bus Extension Card P/N 51G9781, FRU 00G2721

Rick says:
   As you can see, there's not much to this "SCSI Bus Extension Card".  It has a 62 card edge connector (31 on each side) that plugs into the planar, and two standard SCSI narrow connectors (CN1, CN2) are available to attach 3.5-inch SCSI hard drives.
