SAS Cable 8meter | equalized? Passive?

Recommended Posts


i'm from germany and my english is not the best. Sry for that ;)

i have a little problem with the tape drive TS2250.

I need a cable with 8m length, but the drive doesnt support active cables.

i found a shop which sells active and equalized cables with the needed length.

Whats the difference between active and equalized ? Can i use an equalized cable with this drive?

Is there any solution to connect a hba (or an active supporting) and an active cable with it (i got one, but nobody told me that it doesnt work with the tape drive)?

Maybe with an adapter or something like that?

the only solution i found is the sas switch from LSI, but thats to expensive.

thanks for helping me and greetings from germany !!!
