About this keyboard type

The Modular Compact ANPOS Keyboard (also known as Modular CANPOS II Keyboard) is the direct successor to the original "Model M-e" CANPOS Keyboard, released alongside the MANPOS and 67-Key MPOS Keyboards in 2008. Like CANPOS, MCANPOS fit a full-size keyboard and many programmable keys in a chassis that is a similar width to a tenkeyless keyboard. Additionally, all alphanumeric keys are slightly thinner compared to their M9 RANPOS, M-e PS/2 ANPOS and MANPOS counterparts. Being an MPOS series device, the MSR is now modular attachment instead of a fixed component and now gains the option for a touchpad or key-lock compared to the original CANPOS. No extra keys were added despite some programmable key layout alterations, meaning both MCANPOS still have 133 (US English) or 134 (rest of world) keys. After buying IBM Retail Store Solutions, Toshiba TEC has produced and marketed this keyboard design since 2012 and it remains in production.
