Mmm.. yes, below the connector appears a legend "SCSI-HP IB".
My doubts come from this.

Is good to know it :-)
But, being practical, I approach to ask you about another two matters:

* What model of graphic screen can I use with the 380 ? I should like to
about one (or more) model with all its identificacion data to search it in
or some reseller.
* What model of serial terminal or screen can I use with the 380 to plug
the RS-232 port of this computer ? Same than previous.

(Of course I accept all reasonable offer from somebody in Europe. This
one GPIO board)

Thanks and Greetings
Best Regards
