Abstract : A control unit is given for use with standard teletype equipment to test D.C. currents and D.C. batteries to the local tape cutters using an internal metering circuit. The control unit has the capability of switching from primary to alternate teletype transmitters and/or receivers without the use of patch cords as well as monitoring the transmit circuit to allow Base Operations to maintain a chronological record of all transmissions without having to address the message back to themselves. The control unit also permits backup transmission without losing tape cut capabilities from either of two tape cutters by placing only the transmitter-distributor of either tape cutters on line without the use of patch cords.
