I agree... as they are part of Mini-LAN network. Pictures are impossible to find.

Sanyo MPC-S1: I don't think it's correct to create an apart page.

See explanations here: https://www.msx.org/wiki/Sanyo_MPC-CAP1

and the proof here with MPC-6: https://www.msx.org/wiki/Sanyo_MPC-6

Japanese Wikipedia makes the difference between
* Videotex Terminal MPC-S1 Sanyo Electric Co., Ltd.
* Captain Unit KA-MPC-CAP1 Sanyo Electric Co., Ltd. --Expansion unit dedicated to the company's MSX (first standard) personal computer (MPC-10mkII, MPC-10, MPC-11, MPC-6)

https://ja.wikipedia.org/wiki/%E3%82%AD%E3%83%A3%E3%83%97%E3...

MPC-S1 can't be used on MSX but MPC-CAP1 (the KA on Wikipedia is wrong) allows some MSX1 computers to work as MPC-S1 units, they received therefore the extra label when the contract was signed with CAPTAIN.

KA-MPC-CAP1 is also mentioned (KA- is is almost completely erased but I saw it on the original magazine ad) but although the photo is very blurry it is only written MPC-CAP1 on the rear of the device.

According Japanese Wikipedia, MPC-S1 is a Videotex terminal, not an interface!!!!

The text with the ad you mention says the same: "In addition, MPC-X's high performance can be officially used as a video-tex terminal by adding KA-MPC-CAP1 (standard price: 178,000 yen).Designated models are &b() {Video Terminal: MPC-S1} and can be configured with MSX computers (MPC-10mk II, MPC-10, MPC-11, MPC-6), Graphics Extension Unit: MPC-X, and Captivity Unit: KA-MPC-CAP1."

I think it means that MPC-X + MPC-CAP1 is equivalent on MSX to MPC-S1 that was sold apart, but not for MSX, as it is a terminal.

You are right. MPC-S1 is an reference for MSXs that support the MPC-CAP1. (MPC-10mkⅡ, MPC-10, MPC-11, MPC-6, etc)

Quote:

また、MPC-Xによって実現された高性能は、キャプテンユニット:KA-MPC-CAP1(標準価格178,000円)をプラスすることで、ビデオテックス(キャプテン)ターミナルとして、公式に使用することができます。指定機種は、{ビデオテックスターミナル:MPC-S1}で、MSXパソコン(MPC-10mkⅡ・MPC-10・MPC-11・MPC-6のいずれか)と、グラフィック拡張ユニット:MPC-X、及びキャプテンユニット:KA-MPC-CAP1の組合せで構成できます。

This suggests that the expansion bus of these computers have a specificity.

Yes, it's the text for which I have given the Papago translation (better than Google for Japanese, Korean and Chinese).

The MPC-CAP1 is actually a special modem, the above mentioned combination transforms the concerned MSX1 computers into Videotex terminals.

It seems to me that there are one or two other LAN interfaces but I cannot find them.

Probably a Dynadata interface, but accurate info and pictures are impossible to find. We have only a reference: Dynadata LND-032.

Are you sure the Cibertron RS232/Terminal is not an RS-232 interface? The name sounds meaningful and connector is the same as most RS-232 interfaces.

https://www.msx.org/wiki/Cibertron_RS232/Terminal

Edit: This is an RS-232 interface. (See here page 1)
