Geee, what a neat beast - I'm searching a cased AIm (or an AIM
case) for years.

Wasn't it +5 and +/-12 ? It's a long time ago.

Try Richards page - he did a good job and scanned a lot of the Manuals.

There are two edge connectors - one supplys the system (extension)
Bus, the other offers the 'user' port, including a 20mA TTY (like
the KIM)
