Description

The object is a control panel for an IBM 1414 input/output synchronizer, which is part of an IBM 1410 system. This panel controls various operations for a printer, punch, or reader. Sample operational labels include BUFFER CONTROL, POWER CONTROL, INTER GRATED BUFFER SYNC and PRINT BUFFER SYNC. The panel is rectangular with two hinges on the right side. An irregularly shaped frame attached to the bottom of the panel protects a metal box that displays a count of operations. The panel without the frame measures 15.5 inches by 24 inches. A white plastic grid is embedded in the top of the panel. The bottom of the panel contains various controls: for example, switches and dials. Electrical wires are mounted on the back of the panel. Most of the wires are yellow; some are black. The yellow wires have been bound together and cut to stub length.
