Indeed, but the earliest (54-12175) only works on an RL01 (the second is 
54-13531, used on RL02s as well), and the third (54-14025) has (at 
least) three variations I've seen.  One is used for drives with brushes, 
those modified to Rev. K1 and L1 have have obvious mods to deal with the 
lack of brushes and take a while to bring a pack ready after pressing 
load, and the later variations have no visible wired mods and bring the 
pack ready much more quickly.
