[SATLUG] OT: Help needed to identify an old part

Looks like an external SCSI-1 drive enclosure. Good for one floppy or hard drive. The round opening at the lower-right looks to be the power input from an external brick. This would supply the 12/5v for the drive. And, of course, the little rectangle between the power switch and the top SCSI-1 connector is the SCSI ID switch with buttons top (touch up) and bottom (touch down). Except for the power connector that one looks like the one I (used to) have at home ... before one of my sons got SCSI happy(!).

I picked up an external drive enclosure, but I need a little help 
identifying a couple of things.  It says 'DaynaFile' on the unit, but 
there's no model number or anything.  Here is a link to a picture of the 
back face of the unit:


I'm guessing the data connections are for a SCSI (I can't be sure since 
I've never owned any SCSI devices before) -- can anyone confirm that?

Also, there was no power cable, and there is no transformer inside the 
unit, so I suspect it would have 12V or 5V input into the box (i.e., the 
transformer is external) -- does anyone know what I should be looking for?

Please let me know if there is anything else you can tell me about 
this.  TIA.
