This keyboard was OEMed for NCD. NCD RT-101 keyboard is a different version of the RT-101 that was produced by NMB under the NMB branding. The main differences that separate this keyboard from the NMB produced version are the unique case and keycaps.
This keyboard was produced for NCD and other systems that used NCD terminals. Motorola bought 10% of NCD, therefore, entered the market with its own terminal system that sported the NCD terminal display and the associated keyboard.
The NCD RT-101 was produced for the following terminals: NCD19, MPC100, MPC200, MPC300
The keyboard’s layout is unique to this keyboard and NCD:
The keycaps are made out of PBT with dye-sublimated legends. These keycaps are unique to this keyboard as they use a different font and unique colorway.
The upper case is made out of a single piece of beige ABS plastic. The plastic is textured due to the molding process that is used to create the upper case. The lock lights in the upper case are unique to both versions of the N-97.
The cases is made out of a single piece of beige ABS plastic. The plastic is textured due to the molding process that is used to create the lower case. The lower case feet are super flimsy and feel like that they are going to break when moved from the retracted to the out position.
The switch plate is made out of stamped steel. The plate is bent on either so that it can be mounted to the lower case. The plate is painted with a thin layer of black paint. The paint is then protected by a thin layer of oil to prevent rust.
The PCB is a double-sided PCB with all traces on the backside of the PCB. The controllers found on the PCB are Motorola.
The cable is a long coiled cable about 2 meters long when fully stretched. The cable terminates on one end with a PS2 connector and the other end with a 6 pin molex connector.
