Object is a metal cabinet which is lying on foam blocks on a palette. The face that is up is the back side. It bears a single large circuit board which features many components including large ICs, but most prominently a number of connectors for cables. One large cable has a label "PI CLOCK INTERFACE"; another cable has "POWER MAIN CONTROL."

The front side of the cabinet (facing down toward the palette as stored) presents a blue control panel with a 12-inch LCD screen and a few square buttons, most prominently large ones labeled "START" and "STOP."

The cabinet hinges open to reveal a couple of small power supply modules. An L-cross-section bar was loose inside the cabinet and has been tied to the outside.
