Consul 262.5 Keyboard Adapter for VDX 52600 Terminal

Keyboard converter between a Zbrojovka Consul 262.5 terminal keyboard and a Videoton VDX 52600 terminal.

This is a multi-purpose converter that enables the two vintage devices to be used on their own (1. USB keyboard adapter, 2. keyboard emulator over serial) or together to form an honest VT52 terminal.

Status: Semi-finished.
Reading from the keyboard works. Writing to the terminal works. Though it is unreliable and I haven’t discovered all the keycodes that the terminal accepts.
