It's an 8/e (of which I have two, and a nearby friend has three or four 
more, as well as a couple of 8/Ms) chassis.  It takes a big linear PSU 
and two 10-slot Omnibus backplanes.  The 8/F and 8/M (OEM version, 
usually with a very simple turnkey panel) are shorter, take only one 
10-slot Omnibus backplane, and have a completely different switch-mode PSU.
