Identify VPN card on PIX

Hello, can anybody tell me the command to identify whether a PIX has a VPN accelerator card installed(without opening up the chassis) in it in order to get the info (e.g type of card - whether it is VAC or VAC+). Thanks.

A "sho ver" should give you something like:

I believe this is a VAC+, I don't have a PIX with a VAC in it to show you the difference unfortunately, but the output is similar.
