HP 3780A K01 PPTS
This is a very unusual item of HP equipment. I bought this for £5 to make use of the case and rear panel. The HP 3780A Pattern Generator is used for telecoms testing and error detection. This item is a customer accessory, hence the K01 designation, and the clues are the names on the front and rear panels, plus the 2 military style connectors on the front panel. 'BRUIN' and 'TRIFFID' were British Army radio communications systems.
