Description

Object is the center part of the console for the CDC 1604. There is a formica table top on a steel frame supported by a metal pedestal. On top is a wide panel with many rows of indicator lights behind glass with a button for each light, and a row of toggle switches. There is also a key-lock, power on/off pushbuttons, and five rotary switches for entering octal values. Underneath the tabletop are two shallow drawers. On the pedestal under the top is a potentiometer labeled from 0 to 10 and a speaker behind a grille. The actual Program Counter display area is covered by a label with the number 62170, probably for exhibit purposes.
