My "HP 1000 Computers Hardware Data" book from 1978 has a listing for the
"12979B Dual-Port I/O Extender" for M/E/F-series computers. There are
several cables listed as part of this product:

  12979-60024 I/O data cable
  12979-60008 I/O control cable
  12979-60025 power control cable

A later version of this book (1982) lists an additional cable number:

  12979-60028 I/O data cable

That seems to confirm the above.

You're welcome.
