Pagination or Media Count:
Modifications of the equipment used to feed information into the Dnepr universal control machine are described. The disadvantage of the present arrangement is that it requires a fixed number of information lines in the number or command frame. The modified arrangement does not require a strictly fixed number of lines. The arrangement consists of a photoelectric sensor, a reading unit, an input control unit, a unit for generating shift pulses and a register for receiving information. A block diagram of the proposed improved equipment and the punched tape are shown. The system may be used with the Dnepr universal control machine as well as with other similar control machines and computers.
