I am not aware of any 'standard' Data General CRT terminal with a model 
number greater than 1400 - but I recall the 52xx model numbers were used 
for special custom, hand-held wands, scanners and "mini-terminals" that 
may be connected to a standard DG terminal or keyboard.  Just send a 
picture of the terminal front and back (especially the model and part 
information plates) to me off-list so I can better help you...

I am trying to find out if the terminal will use a standard AT keyboard (based on the connector) or if I need to find a special DG keyboard. Any help is appreciated.. in fact any information about this device is appreciated.. I’m finding nothing about this terminal on the interwebs!
