I recently purchased a microscope camera which came with the camera body (an Olympus DP71) and this cable connector:
I need a PCI card that fits it, but I have no idea what kind of connecter this is!
can anyone help? thanks.
Well, first you contact the people who sold you the Olympus DP71 microscope digital camera and ask them where your missing PCI camera interface card is.
Next bet is to get onto eBay and start looking for it there.
Elsewise you contact Olympus and find out if this proprietary interface card is still available for the model microscope camera you have.
For further research: Absolutely no recommendations as to whether the Olympus software or camera will interface to this card and make it a useful application. Adaptec SCSI Card 29320LPE for SCSI Ultra320 has an external 68-pin VHDCI connector this would plug into. Also, there's the Adaptec 39160 SCSI Card for SCSI Ultra160. Whether either will interface and actually work is the research you will have to do. See if there are any digital microscope enthusiasts groups who are into salvaging equipment like this.
That is a 68PIN SCSI Connector, it will be number 6 or number 11 i believe.
However, the there is a trigger port on the card that is used to connect with a Y cable. I am guessing that this means that if you want to use the computer to capture the images, then not only do you need the SCSI connector, but also this trigger cable connected. Here is a link to the owner's manual.
