This unit came with a ROM drawer with the following ROMS:

00087-15002 REV. BPLOTTER ROM
00087-15003 REV. AI/O ROM

The missing area in the graphics demo picture is an artifact of the camera shutter.

I later acquired a 82901M dual-floppy unit. The fan was caked with dirt, and neither of the drives would turn (although they did step). Internal voltages looked good. I pulled the drives and found that both spindles were hard to turn, so I dropped some sewing machine oil into the bearings. Everything started working, and I ran several programs from the DEMO DISC (see pictures).
