DigiPos 12″ Touchscreen 26WAY D-Sub Pinout

Just found this lurking in drafts. It’s been a long-time since I wired this monitor up and am not able to check the pinout, right now, other than from a bit of paper I’ve found that I made notes on. Assuming the notes are correct, the monitor and touchscreen both worked for me, so here goes:

The flex is also very flexible (as you can see below) whilst still reassuring you that its innards are safe, say, from a particularly vicious edge-of-desk or a ensnared panic-stricken colleague.
