Mixing E2400 and E1200NSR in a library

Is there a problem with having an E2400 NSR and an E1200 NSR in a ESL9322 library?

Brent:

I could be wrong, but I don't see how it could since the only way the NSR's talk to the library is through the robot or directly to the drives (in the case of a bigger library with more that 2 drives).

They get power from the backplane, but that is about it. The card is an entity on its own, or so I believe, and does not "hook" into the library for anything else but power.

I agree with Steven,
in the past some where delivered with the 1200, now the E2400 is used, you just have to adjust the filler if you use the 1200 because it is shorter.
In ESLe, by default there was a 1200 and several 2400 in the same cage.
no interaction are made via the cage, only via Lan with the Interface Manager

Is it possible to adjust the filler so that both an E2400 and an E1200 will fit in the same cage?
