100 pin cable: http://cyberresearchuniversity.net/store/cables-wiring/pc-computer-cables/scsi-cables/CBSCSI_10003_4229.2.htm

That's the 3ft. cable.  They also have 6 and 9 ft. cables.

Thank you Steve!

I will order that. Now I have to decide what machine to use the Galil on!

 ???

I have to compliment cyber research for their service, I ordered the cable yesterday and it showed up today!

Unfortunately, the cable has 2 male ends and the galil and Icm2900 seem to have the same gender connectors.

Any idea where to get the correct cable or maybe gender changers?

Thanks,
Eric

You are probably better off coughing up the $125 to buy from Galil.  Forget about the references to a "SCSI" cable.  SCSI uses several different connectors and was never 100 conductors. 

The Galil uses the Tyco/AMP Champ 050 connectors.  This is basically a high density version of a Centronics type connector (remember the 36-pin printer cables?).  Male ends have flat connectors on both sides of a rectangular center piece.  I believe that the Cyber Research cable you ordered is a .050" Dsub cable, which uses pins and sockets (a HD version of the old serial port DB9 or DB25 connectors).

Board mount plugs and sockets are available for the Champ 050 system, but the cables or cable ends are almost impossible to find unless you want to order 6-800 pcs.

I have a friend who has a cable for me, I just have to wait for him to bring it back with him.
It will be a few weeks but the price is right. :)

Thanks for the replies.
