Q1587A DAT160 with Tape Array 5300

Anyone knows if the Q1587A DAT160 can be used in the Tape Array 5300 chassis? I have a rx2880 server that I need to use with SAS interface, but I don't want to purchase a new rack mount tape chassis as I have room in the older 5300.
Thx in advance.

I think it supports. I am not sure for the particular product model of Q1587A but Tape Array 5300 supports DAT160 drives.

Please find the link,

The problem is that the 5300 does not reference the Q1587A DAT160 as a supported drive. Not sure if the Q1587A DAT160 will fit into the 5300. Will the power and fan work?
