Source Card Display

This apparatus relates to an enhanced card data recorder, which displays the advantages of minimal card handling by the operator and low noise in the punch-print operation.

Since the card source document is no longer visible after insertion into a card data recorder, it is an essential function of this apparatus that it be able to capture the surface detail of the card and display it for the operator.

As illustrated in the figures, sensors A, B and C produce an analog scan of card sections. These signals are amplified and converted to a digital output, which is synchronized to locate the proper X and Y drive levels. A gas panel displays and stores this detail, until a machine operator indicates the completion of that card and the incremental stepping to a next card record. The card is released from the drum D for further processing in the conventional card data recorder manner.
