I acquired this via a guy who gets rid of stuff left over at estate sales. No details about the original owner, where it was used for, etc.

It's a Word Processor - this unit should work standalone as both the console and printer. No internal storage, just the two floppy drives.

Specs I've gathered so far:

  • Z80 CPU
  • 96 K of RAM
  • 2x 5.25" Floppy Drives



It's not working at the moment. I'm slowly working on cleaning this up, hoping to get it at least running again. It's throwing some error codes right now that seem to be related to either the CPU board or the memory board.

One thing that amazed me is that it came with the full maintenance manual - complete with (real) diagnostic instructions, expected voltages, schematics, etc. I'm slowly making my way through that. So far I've confirmed the power supply is good and all its output voltages are within spec.

Where I'm still stumped is in finding information about this thing. There's a ton of information online about the rise and fall of Wang Laboratories, but very little if anything about this unit. I can find a fair amount of details about the Wang 2200, but I haven't so much as found another picture of this unit anywhere else online.

Has anyone come across one of these? Any pointers on where to look up additional information, details, history, anything?
