Looking for Specifications on this Single Board Computer HS-486H Ver:C8

This SBC is a Boser HS486H ver:C8   The HS designation refers to Half Size according to Boser.
It came out of an Abbott laboratory analyzer- Cel-Dyn500.  No doubt the reason I haven't found any info on it is because its an OEM built for Abbott.
I am trying to figure out how to utilize this SBC as it has an ISA bus connector, but may be able to run as a stand alone SBC if I can figure out the power connector. It orginally was connected to a powered backplane through the ISA slot with a secondary ISA video card with a touch screen LCD panel for video output. I will post pics for reference.

The power connector seems to be the white connector in the upper right. 8 Pin

Interesting.  Looks like a 486 CPU, UMC chipset, SRAM L2 cache with tag RAM, Dallas clock/battery, and AMI BIOS.  Power connectors are non-standard.  Has drive interfaces (IDE and floppy).

Model number of analyzer is CELL-DYN 500.  Quite a few Google hits, but a cursory review didn't show any diagrams or specs.

If I come up with any useful information, will add later.

Thanks Willcomp, I'm stumped on this one,  the power plug seems to be an industry standard at the time. There are 4 stand off holes in the pcb which leads me to believe it can be used as a stand alone SBC without use of the ISA connection.

Any video options for stand alone?

It was hard to tell, but power connectors did not appear to be AT type which was commonly used at that time.  AT type pins were flattened and those appear round.  AT type connectors had two power plugs that usually went side-by-side with 6 pins each (12 pins total).

This is an AT power supply, surprised any were still available:

No its definately 8 pin, I found a pinout on another SBC that uses the same connector but that doesn't mean its compatible

I don't think Boser was necessarily the actual manufacturer.
I think it's possibly a rebranded product that Boser provided to Abbott.

Here is the same board under a different brand name:

I also found an AP-486H which sounds like the same specs/parts but I couldn't find a pic.

I found this pinout on a couple of different 486 SBC boards with the same 1x8 connector.
(Boards were: Rocky 418, IND-486H)

I found it !! http://www.arisecomputer.com/sbc/hsize_SSC-486H.asp
Identical, you twigged me on the power plug connector and went searching for the type. its a  2571-08TS, 8-pin male connector. Kept searching for this plug and  about 4 pages into a google search ,voila. Now for the manuals if there are any.

Wow PCBONEZ, you posted as I was looking, good on ya.
PCBONEZCommented:
I ran across IEI in looking around but all I saw was part numbers... No pics..

You can use this to translate most web pages.

I checked their international page but no luck on this particular model. The OEM stuff is really hard to get info on but they did have the rocky you posted so I'm thinking the pinout could be the same. Another way to go would be a powered backplane for ISA as it doesn't have VGA.
 Well, Gotta go get the muffler changed on the van for now. I'll check in later.
PCBONEZCommented:
You may be able to figure a couple of the pins out with simple resistance checks between that connector and other connectors on the board.
Figuring out which pins are grounded should be easy.....
Then a couple of pins in the (fan connector, IDE connector, memory slot) that you know from standard pinouts should be +5V or +12V or whatever...
(Like check places that should get +5V to pins 1 and 8... And that should get +12V to pins 2 and 7...)
If several matchup to the supposed pinout then that's probably it..

I have an update , or should I say a correction. The lab analyzer that the SBC came from is an--> ALCYON 300i<-- not the cell-dyn 500 I had posted in the question. I just got to look at the case it came from and also found the huge backplane that it was attached to. Its been sitting in the rain a few days, with other junk thrown on top. Looks to be a goner. Has a whole bunch of controller boards for stepper motors and pumps and such. Wish I had gotten to it earlier.
I did manage to get an Abbott part # of the backplane, 85250-103
 going searching now.
MarkAuthor Commented:
Finally got around to checking the pinouts. Used the pinout and suggested method of testing it  provided by PCBONEZ. I tested through the ISA pinouts and it looks to be the correct one.

COOL!!
