    Fiber optic Ethernet transceiver with AUI attachment. Not sure on specifics.

    Okay so that’s a fibre optic port, but that’s a 15 pin d-sub at the back of the second pic so I’d have to go along with the AUI ethernet idea. I’ll plump for it being a fibre optic ethernet converter.

  3. wrm says:

    Way too complex for AUI to fibre.

    Some kind of a measurement device? Not complex enough for a fibre gyro. Distance sensor?

  4. Per says:

    Chipcom ORnet fiber optic transceiver. Possibly 9301T

  5. Frank says:

    Looks like a 10 Mbps DIX to fiber transceiver

  6. Arargh says:

    Looks to be from the early 90s from the date codes.

    Does anybody actually use 10Mb ThickNet for anything, anymore?

  7. Looks like a some kind of coaxial to serial adapter

    Could the port on the left be a power lug? That was my thought when I saw it (pre-split hp product). There would have to be another lug under the yellow (they are typically side by side), and possibly a signal generator (or something else controlled by the dsub).

    Maybe it isn’t a lug (there aren’t many things that fit a single lug and the lack of switches/knobs on the same panel), but that was my first thought.

    ORnet Fiber Optic Transceiver (fibre AUI converter/transceiver with 10 Mbps)
