Abstract : The paper contains a description of one method of coupling the FSU-1 photographic reader and the BESM-3M computer to input alphanumeric data received either over telegraph lines or from standard punched paper tape. The data input takes place at a speed of 200 characters per second. The input rate is varied by changing the ratio of the corresponding change gears of the FSU-1. Circuit diagrams of the reader and the computer connections are presented with detailed explanations of the input process. The circuit for coupling the FSU-1 to the BESM-3M is built from standard elements and requires only a few additional elements for its execution.
