Found in the silicium forum:
the OM-32 ROM cards are not for use with the PB-2000C or AI-1000, but the
"Sandvik Coromant TRIM 8401T" industry pocket computer, that was built in
1987 or 2 years before the PB-2000C.
The 8401T housing looks like the FX-770P series, but the hardware is almost
the same as the FX-850P or FX-603P. (HD62002 @ 1.228 MHz)
It has 8 KB RAM thats even PEEKable (Address range: 0-8191).
The Basic seems to be a light version of the FX-850P, but it's not possible
to write own programs. The machine is only able to execute Basic programs from
OM-32 ROM cards. So the OM-32 ROM contains only a tokenized Basic program, but not
the interpreter itself like the OM-53B for the PB-2000C.
There are 4 different OM-32 program versions:
If there is no label on your OM-32 to identify it, you can use a PB-2000C in
the following way:
-Put the OM-32 card into the PB-2000C and switch it on
-Type "clear mon" in the CAL mode to call the hidden monitor
-Type "B" EXE "0" to switch to bank 0
-Type "EC10" EXE "40" EXE to map the OM-32 in bank 3
-Type "B" EXE "3" to switch to bank 3
-Type "DD" EXE and check the first value for the program version
-Type "D10" EXE for the date of the program
