Apple SCSI cable for connecting peripheral devices, includes male to female adaptor/terminator, introduced in 1986.
SCSI is pronounced 'skuzzy'.
SCSI = Small Computer System Interface.
SCSI is a parallel data transfer and control line system, which enabled what at the time was high speed data transfer between up to seven devices arranged in a daisy-chain configuration. Most importantly this allowed the high speed connection of a hard disk.
Every Macintosh from the Macintosh Plus (1986) onwards was fitted with a SCSI port until it was gradually replaced by the even faster FireWire port from 1993 onwards.
