EKRA E5 X20b port | 24 July, 2019

We recently acquired an EKRA E5 (vintage 1999), and I am receiving a "Machine Offline" error. I discovered a cable labeled "X20b" that is disconnected, but I cannot find the port it should be connected to. I do have the manual but have not found any ports with that label. Does anyone know where I can find the correct port?

I believe the x20 and x21 ports are used for smema. There is a proprietary smema end, that connects to those cables. They almost look like parallel port connectors right?

Yes, they look like parallel port connectors. I traced the lines and I believe you are right about the SMEMA. Thanks for your input
