You've got yourself something really unique.

I feel like this keyboard belongs in Japan. Would be neat to see it documented though.

Re: Fortune Systems looooong keyboard with Digitran capacitive switches (conversion)

Well it's 3am here and I've got the board all hooked up... but I'm afraid to turn it on. I've spun the volume knob all the way in one direction, but I'm not sure if I've turned it all the way up or down. I know as soon as I plug this thing in, it's going to beep at me and scare the hell out of me. ...

Re: Old IBM Model m with a unique controller help

I believe your board is essentially the ISO / UK version of the IBM 1386303 which is pretty much the first of the Model M keyboard's which were not intended for PC's.

Re: Old IBM Model m with a unique controller help

Well you don't even have a pic of the label or list the part number in this thread but it sounds like you have an early production model and not a prototype. The controller looks fairly standard to me. The earliest production Model M's were made in 1985 and prototypes I believe date to later in 1984.

Re: IBM 5576 Keyboard

Isn't this the one that was on ebay for 1,200 bucks? Quite interesting switches, looks like Keytronic Tactile foam and foil, but with an MX stem. How does the sensing work? Is it capacitive or conductive? Seems like it would be capacitive, but the ribbon cables make me think conductive. Looks like ...

It's been a while since anything as been posted here. Nearly 1 year later I just found these manuals on eBay which apparently do not exist online so I'll eventually need to get these uploaded to bitsavers.org ;)
