You are the only one to say it speaks DEC and not ps/2 though it has a
ps/2 connector. The circuitboard looks like that of a LK201 when I take
it apart.

It does have 3 barcodes on the bottom. It isn't made by DEC but in
Mexico by someone:

119-4022-01 VT
LK401 North American/UK
Date code <barcode>
serial number <barcode>
Cat list 108rx43s-145e

But it ways 5.0 VDC, so I guess it must be ps/2 and not dec style since
dec has 12 vdc?

Thanks also to Kevin Handy and Ethan Dicks for your help.

Happy new year!
