    My first vote is a label maker, something like a Brother P-Touch. The
    "typewriter" shape is more popular but they do make some in the
    handheld/fat-remote-control shape. Big keypad, LCD on top, printed
    label tape emerges from the black panel on the left.

    My second vote is along the lines of what Phil Hobbs said. It's a
    (TI?) scientific calculator stuck into some kind of shroud or backpack
    that provides additional functions: a printer, bigger batteries,
    interface to some kind of test or analytical equipment, something like

    What do we win if we guess right? :)

    I believe that is a Brady ID Pro label maker, though I can't find an exact image of it on the web. Maybe it's a different product line name? The ones I see online use roll-feed blank label stock.

    The one in your photo is circa-1998 and had continuous roll stock that was in the shape of a rectangular cartridge that you would attach to the rear of the unit. The printed label would exit to the rear side of the unit and had an integrated manual cutter. Several label stocks were available, including tamper proof labels, industrial sleeves for wire harnesses, high temperature & weatherproof outdoor labels, etc... Very nice machine. The company I used to work for had one of these in the shop.

    If it's not Brady, it's one of the other big industrial label maker manufacturers - maybe Zebra.? But I pretty sure it's Brady.

    Without more and better pictures, it could be a network cable verifier.


  5. It has a full keyboard. Likely a barcode or RFID inventory scanning

    that would be my vote too (having scrored two slightly similar looking surplus
    units for cheap)
