Sorry, but this isn't the cabview of an ICM Koploper. These German build (Talbot, Aachen) EMU's have not the typical French manipulator (the so called "Cerclo") as used in the NS-series 1600 - 1700 - 1800. There is little difference between the drivers pult of a Sprinter and a Koploper. So far as I can see, the cab on this photo belongs to a mDDM-unit that is push-pulled by
the NS series 1700 and 1800

@Marc Petit: not mDDM-units, but DD-AR or DDM units.

A single list to make things clear:
- DDM-1: single coaches always pushed or pulled by a 1800 loco (or 1600 before the renumbering)
- DDM-2 and -3 (also called DD-AR): fixed sets of coaches pushed or pulled by a 1700 loco or an mDDM
- mDDM: power car which can be combinated with DD-AR
