Toshiba TEC-made continuation of the IBM-era 50-key point-of-sale keyboard with integrated magnetic stripe reader in the IBM Retail POS (RPOS) keyboard family, now made for Toshiba Global Commerce Solutions. These were used as FRUs and for TGCS-rebranded IBM SurePOS terminals. Its design is for the most part unaltered compared to the last IBM-era Model M7s but with any IBM branding patched from its cover set tooling. This is the pearl white (top cover piece) and storm grey (bottom cover piece) version that used an RS485 serial interface via a modular 8-pin SDL to 8-pin SDL cable. It exclusively used lasered legends for its Ctrl and numeric keypad keys.
