The Hegotron Grafpad II is a graphic tablet from British Micro - A Hegotron Group Company, marketed by Grafsales Ltd. It was produced for the Amstrad CPC, Joyce PCW and the IBM PC.
Date : 1986
The graphics add-on Hegotron Robotics Grafpad II is an input tablet device. Often in the computer industry, a no model 1 is unknown but I recently (December 2006) learned that the Grafpad (without the addition of a model number, making you believe it is model 1) was produced for, amongst others, the PC 1512 and 1640. That would (more than) indicate that it actually is a later model...
This graphics tablet is dedicated to the PCW and can, besides the usual drawing and design capabilities, also replace the keyboard action. Not with LocoScript, though, only under CP/M: a nice gadget but the real use is technical design of electrical diagrams and printed circuit boards (PCB's).
