Here’s a capture or two of the console of the UDEC II

And the E101 plugboard programmable, “suitable for engineering scientific and commercial problems of medium complexity”

The “Computer History Archives Project” is a great channel and I’m really glad that it exists.
Same goes for Ed Thelen’s site.
