OK. Yes, the system I have was set up for RH-11. Here is the layout
starting from slot 9/11 of the expansion cabinet of the 11/40 I am working
9/11: M9202 (1-2)
11: M7297 (3-4)
11: 7296 (5-6)
14: M5904 (3-4)
15: M5904 (3-4)
16: M5904 (3-4)
17: GC (4)
18: GC (4)
18: M9300 (1-2)
19/21: M9202 (1-2)
19: GC (4)
21: M7248 (3) M7212 (4) M7212(5)M7212 (6)
22: M784 (5) M783 (6)
23: M7213 (3-4) M785 (5) M785 (6)
24: EXPANSION CABLE (1-2)
24: "small card" (4), M785 (5) M785(6)
26: M9700 (3), M105 (4), M7226 (5-6)
27: M7821 (4)
28: M117 (4)
29: M002 (4)
31: CABLE FROM 24
31: M7258 (3-6)
34: M7800 YA (3-6)
