Abstract : The 'Dnepr' computer, first produced as a group of 10 pilot models in 1962, has undergone considerable changes and is now beging lot-produced by the Kiyev Computer Plant. Its cost is between 50,000 and 150,000 rubles, depending on configuration. Major emphasis has been placed on improving reliability and peripheral equipment. A large number of the computers are being used by the most important industries in experiments to develop the first digital systems of automation. Control systems employing the 'Dnepr' computer are designed as both automatic and semi-automatic. Some automatic applications are: metallurgy-automated furnaces; chemistry-automatic process for obtaining ethylbenzene; power generation- automatic control of boiler-turbine units; coal mining- mine equipment control.
