Things are tough right now ...

They're tough for everyone :( But when coronavirus hit here in the UK, the museum had to close its doors to the public, and we lost practically all our income overnight.

Please Donate Via Just GivingNo visitors, no workshops, no events, no school visits... no income. We know that things are tough for everyone right now, but if you can afford to help us through these tough times please donate what you can.

Stay safe, stay at home! There's over 36,000 exhibits here! That should keep you occupied for a bit - get searching!

The 630 API Printer is similar to the 40 CPS (630) Printer. It will support a
heavy workload usin' conventional seri&d or parallel data interchange techniques
and protocols. The areas of difference include the carriage assembly, paper feed
motor anti-backlash gear, and control panel assembly. Additionally, the 630 API
contains two PWBs, the Servo Control Electronics (SCE) board, and the All
Purpose Interface (API) PWB. This interface enables the 630 API Printer to be
connected to a variety of systems, using the appropriate interface cable.
