I have a half a dozen of these. A friend used them to punch tapes for
an automatic wire wrap machine (actually 3 of those) for his business.
When we went to Remex in the early 80's in Irvine for service they had
probably 100 in the pipeline for rebuild for the Air Force. They were
used extensively for a very long time with AWACS and other systems the
AF had, and that kept the service part of Remex running for a long time.
I don't know if anyone took that over, but it may still be around here
in Orange County.
The colors of the unit you have identifies it as one that was
potentially built for Microdata. The putty color matches the 1600 front
The CHM website is fubar for me today, or I'd send a larger photo. The
panel strip thru the middle is the same color.
The usual Remex i've seen I think have either black and silver or blue
and silver. Or other OEM colors.
Please update here, or to me directly as you work on it. My units were
used up thru the 90's and have newer service dates, and my not have the
capacitor problem, but not worth taking chances.
