A paper tape punch is located at the front of the unit. It is intended to hang over the edge of a table. There is a bracket to hold a chad box below the punch. The back of the unit has two interface connectors (one male, one female), a 110V power cord, a fuse holder, an ON-OFF switch, and a switch labeled "TYPE". Also on the back is a plug in module labeled "CLARY PROGRAM CARTRIDGE, Decimal Integer, Autonetics". The inventory tag is from Ohio Institute of Technology, Alum Creek Dr., Col., Ohio.. 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 prepared offline.
