Fura Elektronik IKT-6
This machine has been manufactured in Poland in late
1990s. It is a serial port terminal, probably for Unix applications. It
is based on a 8031 ROM-less microcontroller and has quite modern features
such as compatibility with IBM PC peripherals (AT keyboard and VGA
display, parallel printer), or EEPROM which stores settings, number of
starts and operation time. RAM is implemented using static RAM, so no
refreshing circuits are needed.
The machine is made using mostly western components, but some are from Czech Republic (power supply block) or former East Germany (some TTL chips). Many other components are from Polish factories. Mainboard has some modifications, which seem to be made because components have been changed in production.
The company Fura Elektronik was set up in 1992 in Tychy (Silesia, Poland), and is present until ca. 2012 (as in Polish registry of companies).

Peripherals in collection:
To enter setup, press both Shift keys simultaneously. There are not many settings, serial port settings, emulation mode, printing.
My unit is in quite good condition, fully operating. Its
history is not known, but remains of inventory number can be seen so it
was probably property of some company. The model "Mxxx" is serial
number, look in
for another unit with another M number. The M number is written to EPROM
of each unit.
The terminal has been described in this newsgroup as Unix terminal, so it was probably used at least one time with Unix machines.
