Following up on the results of my searching around. The FANUC A860 reader
with A20B controller (the normal set up) has a 50 pin output port. There
is a device one can buy that receives the signal from the FANUC's 50-pin
port and converts to into 25-pin RS232. The device is called a behind the
tape reader or BTR. There are models of BTR made for FANUC. I found the
Memex MX1000 and MX1100, Sanyo RLC174 and DOSTEK 440A. I am sure there are
So...one needs some sort of BTR to make the FANUC A860 (also referred to as
FANUC 6) connect to a PC for the purpose of archiving papertapes.
There are vendors who sell these used/new. fanucparts.com/btr/
texas-industrial.com and others.
