Josh & Pete: Thank you for the identification. Don't think that the unidentified
quad-boards constitute a SMD controller. I guess the SMD controller was in the second
chassis and went wherever the HDD went. Strange that the PS didn't go with it. I can
feel a bit better for not having recognized the PS :-}.
Rick: The UDA50 is cabled up the rear of the rack to a connector-plate near the top of
the rear-rails. No photo of the plate present, but the cabling is clear on the side-photo
of the rack. So presumably there was a second rack in the original configuration ...
probably also housing a vertical-mount 9" tape drive.

It's not a DEC power supply, it's a Fujitsu
power supply, likely for
M2284 SMD drive. Probably went in the empty slot you mention below.
Yep. Looks identical to the Fujitsu PSU in my 11/40 rack, and the rails are the same as
my Fujitsu rails.
