I believe the early DLVs use the same pinout as the Unibus DL11 boards.
If this is correct, the pinout is given in:
You only need to use a small number of the pins. On the Unibus boards, the
choice between EIA and 20 mA is made by the cable -- both sets of drivers are
always driven, and there's a jumper on the cable that decides which receiver
is actually connected to the UART -- connect "TTL interlock" to either the
"EIA interlock" or "20 mA interlock" pin.
