Time-Line computer Archive Ltd is a not for profit company, our aim is to collect, restore and exhibit all types of early computers and electronics.

We hope that our website will give an insight to the development of computing and will help give inspiration to other people to collect rather than throw out historical electronics.

We also would like to make a record of peoples experiences of early Computing and Electronics primarily from Scotland and the North of England but also from Great Britain generally. If you have any Experiences of early computing or Electronics please don't hesitate to contact us.

Triumph Adler TA1000/1100

Donated by Mr & Mrs Wallis

The TA 1000 System date back to the early 70s, the only date reference we have been able to find is on the Siemens memory

cards (1975) The computer was manufactured in West Germany (as it was then)

The TA 1000 Computer uses TTL (Transistor - transistor Logic) rather than a single CPU chip used in the later TA1100, it has

three Siemens Memory cards of 4K each.

This system also makes use of two cassette units also a twin 8” floppy drive unit and a large tractor printer. We are not sure if

there was a VDU monitor on this system originally.

This TA1000 was used for accounting, Stock control and payroll, etc.
