[Photos] Canon A210-SPK

Here are some photos of a Canon A210-SPK, spanish layout.I couldn't figure the data of the kb, neither info in the web, and quite frankly, is a rare one. It uses blue alps, as you can see where the backspace should be, because it's misssing.

Apart from that, the kb has been cleaned, alps has been lubed, and now is in working condition. The caps has been retrobrighted with liquid peroxide but not the case. The plug is a DIN5, which I suppose is AT protocol, with a PS2 it works quite well. Some alps had the contact leave switched as they didn't work (white alps one works well although is a bit long but fits).

Btw, if anyone has a 1U Alps backspace, i would be interested. It would make this kb more typing friendly.

Bottom of the kb. Those grey parts are actually risers, that tilt it some degrees

No idea the meaning, no date stamps. At least is made of ABS :D

That's a beauty. I wasn't even aware Canon made keyboards apart from the few typewriters I've heard of.
