HP StorageWorks 1/8 G2 Tape Autoloader and compatible HBAs

I am willing to purchase this autoloader.
I intend to connect it to a Dell 6850 server, but I could not find any information about compatible HBAs which I can connect it to.
My server currently has a PERC 5/E adapter that has one port connected to a storage array and one free.
Is it possible to connect this autoloader to this card or do I need a dedicated HP HBA for that purpose?
Whe can I find which cards can be used with this autoloader?
Thanks

Hi Ori
The HBAs from HP are:
HP U320e SCSI Host Bus Adapter, AH627A. Is a Dual channel PCI-Express (PCI-e) SCSI Ultra320 HBA. This is a Product from: http://www.attotech.com/

or

Compatibility Matrix for all Libs/HBA/Software is in this pdf:

And sorry about the Dell adapter, i dont know it.
