Some wire is wrapped with paper tape at a speed of nine thousand miles a day.
There is a paper tape that passes continuously over two rollers and has two stylos constantly bearing on it.
The paper tape is moved by an electrically-driven gear, while time intervals are indicated by means of clockwork mechanism.
The paper tape passed over a cylinder, and was kept in regular motion so as to receive the perforations in proper sequence.
In this case the iron pins mark the paper tape, but the tellurium pins make no mark.
With this positive current the tellurium pins make marks upon the paper tape, but the iron pins make no mark.
It has a slight ridge all around it which is the cause of these marks on the paper tape.
These routines include various format print outs, paper tape and magnetic tape read in programs, and display subroutines.
Watkins pointed to a paper tape inching out of a slot in the machine's face.
Its record, however, is made on a paper tape which is continuously unwound.
Punched paper tape. An early input/output and storage medium borrowed from telegraph and teletype systems.
Data entered at the keyboard of the teletype could be directed to a perforator or punch which punched a pattern of holes across the width of a paper tape to represent the characters typed. The paper tape could be read by a tape reader feeding the computer. Computer output could be similarly punched onto tape and printed off-line.
As well as storage of the program and data, use of paper tape enabled batch processing.
The first units had five data hole positions plus a sprocket hole (for the driving wheel) across the width of the tape. These used commercial telegraph code (ITA2 also known as Murray), Baudot code, or proprietary codes such as Elliott which were more programmer-friendly. Later systems had eight data holes and used ASCII coding.
