Description

This object looks like a small desktop adding machine. The top front has a numeric keypad, surrounded by several other keys. The top rear has an 11 column numeric printer which prints on a 2.25 in paper roll. There is a door at the back to change the paper roll. There is an interface connector located at the rear of the base. There is no obvious power cord. The inventory tag is from Ohio Institute of Technology. A sticker indicates that it was inventoried in FY '70. This is part of the VERSATAPE system which allowed paper tapes for the Recomp computer to be generated offline.
