I actually have 3 MINCs. Two are the RL01 version (one of those has had 
the CPU and memory PCBs pulled and one end of a DW11-B inserted to link 
it to the 11/45). The other is a MINC-23 (with a PDP11/23 CPU) and an 
RX02 drive.

As regards I/O modules, I think the first 2 each have : 

MNCAD Analogue to digital converter
MNCAA Digital to analogue converter
2 off MNCDI Digital input
2 off NMCDO Digital output

The last one has 
MNCTP Thermocouple amplifier
MNCAG amplifier (current/voltage/resistance inputs)
MNCAD Analouge to digital converter
MNCAA Digital to analouge converter
MNCDI Digital input
MNCDO Digitial output

I am particularly pleased that I have more than one clock, since 2 in the 
same machine can be used to make a frequency counter.
