  It's an external 32 track 1/4" tape drive with 132 Mb capacity and 4
Mb/min transfer rate. It has a HP-IB interface.

   I have several of these, but I haven't figured out what monitor they
use. These are basicly the same as HP 9000 300 series computers but have
only one expansion slot. They're widely used as controller's in instrument
systems that's why your's says TEST EQUIPMENT. Like all the 300s these
will run BASIC, Pascal, HP-UX and (maybe) HPL.
