The NMS 1200 is a floppy disk drive interface released by Philips. It allows to connect a standard PC single sided 360kb or double sided 720kB 3.5" disk drive, that is not provided with the interface. Note that the interface does not provide power to the drive.

If a straight ribbon cable is used, make sure that the drives drive-select jumper is set to Drive A, which is not the default for PC drives.

The interface includes a ROM with version 1 of the Disk BASIC commands.
