Another odd bit from the dusty shelf. This relay is a tiny part of a much larger board that I don’t know the origin of. My best guess is that it comes from an elevator, based on the company name on the board.
How it ended up here is a bit of a mystery, but I have a theory. Over the years we have bought up a lot of the classic HP systems as customers upgraded to newer tech, while we continued to support the older systems. Often those shipments came with odd surprises. Pulling out that old system was often the opportunity to tidy the IT operations, and everything went in the same bucket.
However it happened, it does make for an interesting photo. I’ll grab a couple more shots of the board before it moves on to the recycler.
