The Acorn Bus Extender is a Eurocard which plugs into any backplane plug using the DIN 64-way 2 row a/b socket. This brings the 64 connections to the front of the Eurocard rack where a socket projects out. Any other Eurocard can then be plugged into the extender card, leaving the Eurocard clear of the rack for easy access, allowing it to be serviced or developed while operating in the system. The part no. is 200,023 issue 1.
