Ok, I found them. I've got two Paralan SIR-S8 regenerators:
These are the narrow SE models that are currently shipping. Rated for up
to Ultra SCSI speeds (20MB/sec on a narrow bus). Maximum bus length is
doubled (up to 12m for 5MHz SCSI).
Each unit measures roughly 4.5"x4.5"x1.5" and has 2 D50 (aka "Centronics
50") connectors. There's a seperate power supply unit that plugs into
120VAC. They're designed as external devices but could easily be mounted
inside of a large chassis. There are little LEDs on the side that
indicate power, bus activity and termination power.
They're going for over $200 new, which is silly. If anyone wants one then
