Converter for a Focus Keypro/FK-9000 and Northgate Omnikey Ultra

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

I'm getting a Focus Keypro for Christmas and might also get a brand-new (supposedly) Omnikey Ultra for super cheap (hopefully, anyway). I really don't want to drop literally 10x the amount of money on a Soarer's converter, nor do I want to deal with finding a 5-pin DIN plug and making an external converter, and I don't want to not use a perfectly good cable and have an internal conveter. Anyway, I'm wondering if I can use this cheapo converter on Amazon

iirc both the keyboards can be switched between AT and XT protocols, so I'm wondering if this is all I need to use them on my desktop. And yes, my desktop has a PS/2 port. Thanks!
