HA1-A and HA1-B use regular RJ45 connectors and cat5e cable

the HSCI port takes an sfp+ tranceiver or sfp+ active optical cable

Pedro,
 
To answer your direct question: from the 3200 Hardware Guide...
"Palo Alto Networks recommends that you use a passive SFP+ cable."
Part Number: PAN-SFP-PLUS-CU-5M
 
"For installations where the two firewalls are not near each other and you cannot use a passive SFP+ cable, use a standard SFP+ transceiver and the appropriate cable length."
Choose an SFP+ transceiver based on distance and cable type: 
PAN-SFP-PLUS10GBASE-T, PAN-SFP-PLUS-ER, PAN-SFP-PLUS-LR, or PAN-SFP-PLUS-SR.
 
Info obtained from PAN Optics and Transceivers
