I've found a box with 2 x 8" floppy drives. . . . external to some unknown

The box is a Panasonic JB3038P and inside are 2 X JA751 drives.
The drive connectors and the cable coming out of the box are all 50 pin,
exactly like an internal SCSI cable. Unfortunately it isn't recognised by a
SCSI controller, at least not without fiddling with parity and stuff like

Does anyone know what this might have been for?

SCSI 8" floppy drives would have been great cos I don't think I'm ever going
to find a compaticard !
