repurposing Scsi cables???

Hi,

I am in the process of cleaning out my studio and ran into a bunch of old scsi and ultra wide scsi cables. I hate throwing stuff away that stiil works. Can the cables be re terminated into something else useful in 2020?

Its a weird question but I'm post here as most of the people in this forum have been around long enough to know what I'm talking about the the old glyph trip racks were uber expensive back in the day.

thanks,

ej

I suspect that the most useful thing would be trashing them all according to the proper recycling protocol.

I'm not certain, but I think these kind of DATA cables had very specific capacitances etc to allow data to flow correctly for their given transfer protocol.

I can't imagine they'd make very good audio looms nor would I imagine they could transfer another format of digital.

Perhaps the poster above has it right, 're cycle appropriately

thank you both. i spoke to pro audio La. Basically i'd need to test the cables to see if any are at 110ohms. if not the to the trash they go.

Yamaha PM1D system uses SCSI 68 pin half pitch male to male cables to connect modules and mixer surface to brain module. So end of cable connector will have a VGA or HDMI connector shape but be very wide with two long rows of pins (im guessing 35 pins one row, 33 pins the other without looking). I'm also thinking that SCSI cables are 50 ohms not 110 like what is used for AES digital cables but I doubt any markings are on the cable insulation itself giving you info.
