EMCO manuals writen in german can be downloaded from
May be you find an english manual in one of the Yahoo groups
Well ... do you mean the hardware manual, or the software
For the latter, there are three different versions of the
firmware, 1.1, 1.?, 1.4 (I forget whether it is 1.2 or 1.3 which was
never released.) And they are *very* different, so you need the right
manual for your version -- or to change the firmware as well, which can
mean adding chips to the CPU board in the system.
The only way to determine for sure which version you have is to
pull the back panel off and look at the labels on the EPROMs. (And, if
is one of the later versions, the EPROMs will be on a daughterboard
sitting over where the EPROMs normally were, but with the EPROM labels
facing towards the main board.
So -- if it is that, then you'll have to unplug that
daughterboard (which plugs into the original EPROM sockets and into a
random logic chip socket) to read the versions.
If you turn out to have version 1.4 -- I've scanned the manual
(but I'll have to find where it is hiding on a CD-ROM somewhere.) So
send me an e-mail (the e-mail address in the "From: " header is correct,
as well as that which should be in the .sig when the newsreader gets
around to attaching it. :-)
A clue which can sometimes identify an older system is the shape
fo the keycaps on the pad. The old one has keycaps which are squares
with a slight circular depression in the center. The newer ones are
sculptured keycaps like a good computer keyboard.
