ultrium 460 loader drive rs-422 aci interface specs?

Is there a document describing the communications pinouts and/or commands for the ultrium 460 drive posted anywhere? I have a unit originally taken from an autoloader so this connector should be enabled.

I am not sure I understand the question.

I can give you information on jumpers and also and overview that will give details like amperage etc.

If these are useful:

HP has released that specification as part of a proposal for standardizing tape drive automation interfaces. That standardization is now done but is quite a bit different from the original HP proposal. That interface is referred to as the ADI interface. Starting with LTO3 all HP automation drives support ADI.

The specification for ACI is published on the SCSI standards working group web site, http://www.t10.org and is document number 02-011r0.pdf
