IBM Model F EMR

Unread post by paecific.jr » 09 Jan 2019, 00:01

Hey all!

I picked up this keyboard a bit ago, but I've been too busy to get it converted.
I'm wanting to do an external converter, does anyone know the pinouts?

Pics!

I’m guessing it’s the shielded XT. Can’t say I remember what the plug is like on those.

Looks like:

If so, it’s not compatible with Soarer’s converter. Could be a good moment to check tmk and maybe ask Hasu himself. He’s active here on DT.

I remember those! The computers that came with them had a huge hard drive labeled "Not valid past 60Gs". There were 60 screws just to take the lid off! Zenith made basically the same computer and keyboard, with the same connector. I seem to recall a thread on here years ago about converting one.

I thought the EMR variants had a plug like this:
