The drawer has a cut-out at the rear of the keyboard for viewing of printer hard-copy. The keyboard is approximately 28" from the floor. The matrix printer is recessed on a sliding drawer which can be fully withdrawn for paper loading. When partially withdrawn, printer hard-copy output can be read while using keyboard and viewing display. A light is secured in a cabinet to illuminate hard copy. A modular extension bridge may be added on top to accommodate a second monochrome display, or other graphic display. The bridge is secured to the top of the PCMWS over the monochrome display, system unit and expansion chassis. If a second display and expansion chassis are not used, the extension bridge is not necessary. All components (line cords) are plugged into a multi-receptacle power package secured to the rear of the workstation. Space for software, books, etc., is provided for under-the-printer drawer.
