10 Pin MODU Pinout

My guess... The RS/6000 pinout used common RS-232 lines. So we need to compare the Graphics Input Device Adapter (Type 6-1) port to the 10 pin MODU port... If we had a MODU to Mini DIN8 cable...

#4060 39F8228 LPFK, Dials or Tablets Serial Cable (6ft) Cable-HH
#4061 39F8302 LPFK, Dials or Tablets Power Cable (6ft) Cable-JJ

PFK 6094-020 and Dials 6094-010 on ports S1 and S2

Cable-B Adapter Modu-to-DB25 S1/S2

And this gets us nowhere. We need the "HH" cable pinout.
