Describing the ports might help. Description and count of whatever other 
connectors are on it might help as well - an X-pin Berg connector, or 
X-wide row of headers on the non-component side, etc.

I'm guessing the LPWR is a "silk screened" marking under the top layer 
of board material, seems to be a standard practice on most DEC boards 
I've seen from the UNIBUS/BI/QBus era. You can often find a 2-5-2 
pattern part number ("01-23456-78") rendered similarly somewhere else on 
the board - you've probably already checked, but worth mentioning just 
in case...
