So I got a couple of these in a box of parts this week, and struggling to figure out what it is. Haven't found anything online either. Anyone have any ideas?

It's a red metal box with the IGS logo on it, a keypad and a numerical counter/screen. The back has all kinds of inputs and outputs. It's locked with two barrel locks, but one of them came opened without a base already.

Some kind of port replicator, or serial communications device? if you can take pics of the insides, maybe some chips can give a better idea.

Regards.

It looks to be a serial comm box for their liner slots games. A manual I randomly searched says the RS232 port is for a printer.

Hmm that would make sense, thanks for the insight. Was hoping for something more glamorous/video game related, but would explain why they were just dumped in an old parts bin.

Pics of the guts anyways:

Well it sounds like they aren't that interesting after all - off to the electronics recycling they go. Thanks for the feedback all.
