I don't think there is one.  The PDP 8i is the closest thing but there are
I think 26 switches at the bottom the 8i, I think only 18 at the bottom of
the straight 8.  They thus can't be the same exactly but it may be that the
straight 8 is the same as the 8i, if you use only switches that appear on
both systems (no step counter on the straight 8).  Dave G will know.
