Teensyfy RS232 keyboard or not?

Hello, I’ve bought recently a fine Bosch / Marquardt keyboard with RS232-DB9 connector. 79D1DE31-FF58-481A-B326-AEC42DB78AF2.jpeg Both my oscilloscope and my RS232-USB converter verified that it speaks ASCII via RS232. Unfortunately, this means that <Left-ALT> is without function. The switch itself ...

Tellervision GP101 - everyone who has seen the video of Chyrosran22 about it will know why it’s “sold as is for parts” ;-)

Re: Price Check: How much is my _____ worth?

I want to part with my Matias Tactile Pro 4 (Mac QWERTZ version).
Optical very good condition, but <P>, <Ü> and <+*~> feel a little lighter than the other switches.
Original box and cables will be part of the deal.

Re: IDENTIFY THE KEYBOARD thread

Yes. I ment the overall appearance. I will upload a full photo later (probably tonight). I did some research prior to buying it and all sources I had said that the Compact Goupils only came with MX switches (some of the full size were G81s but also Cherry though). That's what I expected get to be h...

It is a Goupil Compact Keyboard (1800-Layout) with Azerty-Layout. It is made in Germany and in as new condition.

It looks exactly like the Compact Cherry-Goupils in the Wiki.
But the wiki says „Cherry MX“ and the switch doesn’t look even remotely like Cherry MX.

Stellar job! Is this just the lighting or did the legends also get affected (they seem a little bit faded/transparent somehow)?
Unfortunately, the legends of the light grey keycaps seem to have faded a bit. The legends of the dark grey keys haven’t been affected.

It’s a Chicony keyboard from 1995.

There is a similar keyboard with the same FCC-ID on eBay:

Can't remember if the daughterboards are identical or mirror imaged. It's been a while. They are at least very similar.
I’ve checked with the pictures of the cleaning of my AEK II. The daughterboards aren’t identical.

Re: Try ADB/USB Converter (Germany)

The cable shouldn’t be a big issue - any S-Video -cable will do, and can be obtained cheap or perhaps even for free, since nobody uses them anymore. But this doesn’t help, since you still need a converter. If you can solder a little bit, it’s no problem to build a converter on your own with a Teensy...

Front has Bull logo on it, backside says Zenith.
Does that make sense? And if it’s Zenith, anyone has an idea about the switches?

Re: IDENTIFY THE KEYBOARD thread

The ICL keyboard has one keycap missing, exposing the slider which looks like a Fujitsu slider-over-rubber dome. That type is mushy and not worth getting IMHO. If it is badged ICL, it is made by Fujitsu ... The FCC ID on the badge on the bottom also identifies it as being made by Fujitsu. Fujitsu m...

Re: IDENTIFY THE KEYBOARD thread

Hello,
on EBay is an IKL TK126006 keyboard for sale, with a missing key cap.

https://www.ebay.de/itm/143940114036

Can anyone
- identify the switches
- tell me if there is a source for matching key caps?

Thanks!
