EconoPac hard disk solutions are for primary and peripheral storage on HP 9000 and HP 1000 systems with HP-IB interface. The easy-to-install storage units have capacities from 200MB up to 4.0GB. If you only need a hard disk then choose from the 89xx series. If you need a hard disk and a floppy disk drive then you should select from the 87xx series. (The 8702 model has been tested and certified by HP as a replacement for their HP9153 disk drive but it's okay to use a higher capacity 87xx model if you want a larger hard disk.)
