As outlined in History, a number of systems have been returned after being decommissioned.
Some of the systems have been stripped for spare parts, while BG Banks and Employers Unions
systems have been reconfigured. One of these is now in use in the
, and the other has been given to
Dansk Datahistorisk Forening,
(shown below) where it now is used for converting old floppies and tapes.
This is the "main table", with a PC with drive A: and B, and with IMW drives for 3.5" and 5.25"
To the right we see a 3.5" Trace autoloader (ex Danske Bank) for automatic handling of floppies.
Then comes a Octopus floppy box for handling 3.5" 5.25" and 8" floppies, a Power supply for 8"
floppies, and then an Intermec 8625 barcode printer
"Tape table" : at the left a machine for formatting 3.5" floppies. In the middle a Qualstar
3412 Tape drive (reel to reel).
At the right an enclosure with Tandberg, Exabyte and HP DAt drives. On top of it, yet another
Tandberg drive (8 are needed in total in order to be able to read AND write all densities)
At the right, a Fujitsi M2488 drive for handling IBM 3480, and a Compac DLT 2000
(donated by Tax Norway).
The museum also has a Gentex telex system, configured to support up to 8 teleprinters
of varying types, such as character set, speed, etc.
This picure gives an idea how a real telegrafphoffice looked like. It depicts the office in The Hague (Netherlands)
