Description An old industrial computer. What should we do with it?

We've recently gotten an old industrial computer, an IPC32/19 by SSV Software Systems. Ours seems to have been used for some kind of valve control. Anyway, it's a cool looking thing with a bunch of buttons and a big display. Any ideas what we could do with it?
