The object is a metal case on legs containing a Raytheon A/D converter and interface, according to provenance found with it. A plate attached to the top of the object reads "Elgin Metalformers Corp, Elgin, Illinois, Serial 34533" and "EMCOR Products." This apparently refers only to the metal case. A paper tag on the side reads "EMCOR PART NO PN-12PA." This also apparently refers only to the metal case. On the front of the object are two handles, one on each side. On the right side are a fan and a power connector. Under the metal case are two white plastic enclosures, which cannot be removed. Inside one of the enclosures is paper documentation, which is apparently related to the object.
