About this keyboard type

The Modular ANPOS Keyboard (also known as Modular ANPOS II Keyboard) is the spiritual successor to the Model M9 RANPOS Keyboard and the "Model M-e" PS/2 ANPOS Keyboard, released alongside the MCANPOS and 67-Key MPOS Keyboards in 2008. In terms of layout modification over its predecessors, the changes are tame - only 3 programmable keys have moved to make way for the modular pointing module and the status indicators panel is also much smaller now. Being an MPOS series device, the MSR and key-lock are now modular attachments instead of fixed components and now gains a touchpad compared to the PS/2 ANPOS Keyboard or any pointing device compared to the M9. After buying IBM Retail Store Solutions, Toshiba TEC has produced and marketed this keyboard design since 2012 and it remains in production.
