Hardcore one - "Back" sans on schematics

Can anyone identify this one?

looks like it's extended...
it's being hard to find one that matches both the 'C' and the 'K'...

it's not... the 'K' is still quite different...

Helvetica CY? But stretched unnaturally.

I'll show you you why I think so - hang on,

here is a sample to start

No. I was wrong. The cross bar on the A is higher in your example

Eben.
I’ve ever seen that Helvetica CY before.
Link?

Yep. that’s true. But the K also seems taller than the other glyphs.
So maybe the K is regular Avant Garde.

It reminds me of Corporate S from Berthold.

Isn't this just Univers?

Never mind - I was looking at the other text on the image. I think this is just regular old Avant Garde, slightly stretched.

Helvetica CY comes with OSX. It's for Cyrillic I think. It also says: Copyright © 1992, 1997 DoubleAlex Design Studio. All rights reserved. - in the info box.

Helvetica CY on my machine has a bearded G.

That G is also wrong for Avant Garde. I think I like the Univers suggestion that Lex had. What does the R look like?

Mike.
We’re talking just about the BACK.

Ooops! I didn't realize that. Sorry.
