I was idly browsing some old electronics magazines on archive.org and saw this
Tektronix testing system from 1972 that clearly has an 11/20 and TU-56. Just curious
as to what the piece of gear is sandwiched between the two. It sort of looks like a
paper tape reader, but for the two white buttons or whatever they are at the lower right
and the white bit at top right.
It seems to be in a DEC bezel(?) It doesn't seem to match the bespoke Tek gear at right
which looks quite different. I'm guessing it really is just a paper tape reader.


Thanks in advance.
