Any info on this terminal?

Postby keenerb » 2018-4-23 @ 13:13

Label on the back of this one was unreadable, but I can get about 50 of these if I want.

I'm assuming it's some sort of IBM dumb terminal, but any information would be appreciated.

I'm specifically hoping it's got a VGA-compatible display, it's pretty small, I would have a use for a few of these.

can you get a picture of the interface connectors?
Looks like it could be a touchscreen monitor with speakers and a microphone in the top right...

Looks like a screen for an IBM industrial pc, some have a proprietary video cable.

Looks a lot like the monitors for some of IBM's POS (cash register) systems but I saw none with those dimples in the bezel.

Seems like this is one of the earliest LCD monitors. I think I'll save some of these from the junk yard if I can, I hope those proprietary connectors are still with the monitors!
