I'm trying to test an old PC which controls a ABB Bomem FTIR Spectrometer (DA&). The internal PC for this instrument is an American Megatrends, Inc. Super Voyager VLB-III ISA Motherboard
I want to connect a monitor, the manual states:
“a special 10-pin header can be connected to the feature connector of a standard VGA Controller card. A signal from this header drives HSYNC, VSYNC, and Enable Video Low during Sleep Mode. If a Green PC monitor is used, the monitor switches to its own low power mode during Sleep Mode.”
So it sounds like it needs a ISA VGA card like https://www.artisantg.com/TestMeasurement/62768-1/Western-Digital-VGA-8-ISA-Card
The manual then states:
"J47 Green PC Monitor Connector Attach a 10-wire 10 to 26-pin flat cable between J47 on the motherboard and the VGA Feature Connector on the VGA adapter card or Graphics Accelerator. J47 is shown below. The VGA cable is pictured below. After the timeout period specified in Power Management Setup expires, the motherboard drives the SYNC ENABLE, HSYNC, and VSYNC signals Low through open collector outputs. Monitors that support the Display Power Management Specification (DPMS) can turn power off after examining this condition, saving power."
I haven't been able to find the pinout or any 10 pin --> 26 pin flat ribbon cables. Does anyone know what the pinout is for those cables? Can anyone tell what VGA controller card would be compatible with this motherboard (8 vs 16 bit? etc).
