ND-5800 Serial number 475 "Batman" was given to me by Dansk Datahistorisk Forening in 2020. It was donated in 2002 by "Telenor i Farum". The computer was built in 1988-06-03.

ND-5000 just arrived to my collection, opened front to check content.

This machine has been upgraded to the more modern CPU ND-5850 RALLAR that were introduced in 1990 and has two CPU:s. It has dual SCSI controllers on the 5000 side as well as dual Ethernet III cards. At the top shelf there is a tape streamer, the boot disk, a 5.25" floppy drive and the front panel.

Missing parts and damages

Nothing is missing except a few screws.

  • A bit of corrosion in the DC300 Power supply and cassette from leaking battery.

Current status

The system resides in my main collection outside of Umeå. It's operational status is unknown.

  • 2020-11-04 Arrived at my main collection, the move from Denmark went just fine without major problems. To move it the last leg of the journey all side panels and power supplies have been removed and is sitting at it's side.
Oh boy, I always forget how hard it is to move these systems. Arriving at my house.

Plans

The system will be put together and tested. The disk will be imaged separately first.
