It probably has the same power requirements as the decs,
but I'm going to translate a few more labels to make sure.
The fact that it is in very good condition means it might have
been used at the university, using u.s. power reqs.
although I'm going on the assumption it uses u.s. power
I won't plug it in till I'm sure.
It is really an almost exact duplicate of the pdp-11/23
boards in the 350. But the cpu chip is definitly different.
It is not built as sturdily as the Decs. The motherboard
is a lot more flexible, but the things like the dimensions
are identical. The drive sleds are identical to the pdp/vax's

Although having the only russian pdp on the block has a certain appeal.
