Honeywell H 716 Front Panel
Honeywell H716 front panel, also
a ASR 33 teleprinter and perforated paper tape program.
For a more detailed description
The H716 was rescued, complete, from the scrap man, as it was being decommissioned from York City Council in the mid’70’s.
It saw service as a dedicated front end communications processor on the Councils Honeywell H200 mainframe.
It then served as a personal training machine for some years until an extensive power supply failure led to it being disassembled.
Over the years, and several changes of location it’s components became “dispersed”.
The H716 front panel (the essence of the machine), and the ASR 33 which served as it’s primary I/O device and console, now
survive to find a permanent home with the Museum.
Big thank you to Dave Dexter for his kind donation.
