  When I worked for Burroughs in 1977 they had three different models of
chain printers. They were all made by ODEC (Ocean Data Electronics Corp.)
and were basicly the same except for the print speed. The two most common
models were 150 and 300 characters/second. I'm pretty sure that the third
model was 600 c/s but it was much less common. In fact, I'm not sure that I
ever saw one.
