OTT cipher machine (mixer) - wanted item

The ME-830 was an on-line and off-line cipher machine for teleprinter networks, developed by Mils Elektronik in Mils (Austria) in the mid-1980s. The device was build around a standard PC of the era and was suitable for telex messages and, via an upgrade, for fax and text messages.

The M-830 supported two types of encryption: algorithm-based encryption by means of a built-in key generator, and, for high-level messages, the unbreakable One-Time Pad cipher (OTP).
