I have not come across these before, but they may prove useful to some people - see http://www.dcpmicro.com/interpack/index.htm
Unfortunately their price list and product information is missing - I have emailed them to see if they are still about and suggested they list some of the items on sellmyretro
Their current price list is attached - although I have recommended that they look to list these on sellmyretro
There is also a more up to date list of products at:

It is basically a modular I/O interface for various computers - you can attach the packs to communicate with other equipment, but have a specific interface for a ZX81, ZX Spectrum, BBC micro etc
ZX81 iss 1 (bugged ROM, kludge fix, normal, rebuilt)
Iss 3 ZXVid
TS 1000 iss 3, ZXPand AY, ZX8-CCB, ZX-KDLX & ChromaSCART
TS 1500 & 2000
Spectrum 16k (iss 1 s/n 862)
Spectrum 48ks plus a DIVMMC future and SPECTRA
One of these is the DCP Interspec (similar to the Interbeeb) for the Spectrum.
It was no surprise to find that I had lost its manual somewhere down the years (probably eaten by dogs)
so after Rich mentioned he had contacted DCP I thought I would give it a go.
David at DCP was amazingly helpful and has sent me all the relevant manuals free of charge which
is pretty cool and some larger companies should learn from that sort of service.
I'll be playing around with it over the next month or so (if I can get one of the speccies up and running)
There's another I/O interface I have from Datel called Robotek - a complete guide for this I've yet to find however
