Developed and manufactured by A/S Regnecentralen to improve the operating efficiency of computer installations, RC 3000 eliminates the need to operate slow peripheral devices on-line. RC 3000 assumes all basic input/output functions, operating all peripherals independently of the computer, which then consists of a central processor and magnetic tape stations constantly transferring data at high speed. RC 3000 improves the economy as well as the efficiency of computer installations by reducing running time and job costs. RC 3000 utilizes computer operating capacity more fully by making it possible to use magnetic tape exclusively as a high-speed input/output medium for the computer, thereby lessening the time used for input and output as well as eliminating the need of peripherals to wait for the computer to process data. RC 3000 - a single, multi-directional data converter — consists of a converter unit, Regnecentralen’s RC 2000 Paper Tape Reader (used as a general-purpose input device and mounted on top of the former), and an associated tape station. The RC 2000 Input Buffer accepts input from alternative sources like a punched card reader as well as from its own paper tape reader, while provision is made for the connection of optional output devices like a line printer, paper tape punch, or digital increment plotter. The RC 3000 Converter is compact, attractive in appearance, and easy to use. The comprehensive use of solidstate circuitry ensures reliability, and its off-line operation creates no interface problems. RC 3000 is already serving many data processing systems, including CDC 1604, Elliott 503, GE 425, GIER, IBM 1401, Minsk 22, Siemens 3003, and others.
