The port next to ‘1’ looks like a USB port… hmmmmm…

I’m guessing it’s a keyboard/Grid switch for Teletype?

6HP for a switch? I don’t think anybody would just give away extra HP for something that could be done in 3 or 4 HP.

Fair enough. I’ll amend my guess to “switch with extra stuff that I wouldn’t have thought of, but is totally cool.”

It looks to me like it might be cross compatible 1u/3u? Would explain the skinny pcb with lots of clearance above/below in @scanner_darkly’s pic, as well as the notching for screw holes (maybe it’s cross compatible between pulp logic and intellijel 1u formats)?

It also looks like there may be two panels in @MengQiMusic’s pic.

Love these sorts of puzzles :slight_smile:

soon! (it’s fun watching the great detective work here)

just one correction, it’s a collaboration with @MengQiMusic and he did most of the work :pray: , so the correct title should really be “Meng Qi / scanner darkly module”
