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...

>> Hello all,
>> I have a Data General Model 5220 MT terminal I picked up recently. Sadly, no keyboard. 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!
>> Thanks!
