Switches drilled into metal plate with punched tape
This came about as a result of the Murray system that employed a keyboard perforator, which allowed you to punch a paper tape, and a tape transmitter for sending the message from the punched tape
. At the receiving end of the line, a printing mechanism would print on a paper tape, and could be used to make a perforated copy of a message.
The exceptions that come to mind include punched tape
, Kearney & Trecker's tool magazine that led to the machining center and, obviously, CNC.
computer that had to be programmed in machine language and an IBM computer programmed by punched tape
. Neither of these machines had internal memory, but we used them to do many types of calculations.
An operator could output reflectance data to a teletype machine, which produced a punched tape
. In the 1980s, such behemoths (then called minicomputers) were replaced by PCs.
