Yes.  That's a BC80M, but it's not a ribbon cable on the controller
end, it's the splayed end of the round cable (12 pair + 1, IIRC) with
crimped gold pins and a 44 position Berg connector.  You can use those
if you don't have a cab kit (which is really just a bracket for the
rack, a 40-pin ribbon cable, and one of those odd ZIF connectors like
on the back of the drive to transition from flat cable to round cable)
but then you'll need a drive-to-drive RL cable.

It's been a long time since these were easy to find.
