TELETYPE MODEL 19 SET

The Teletype Corp Model 19 set is comprised of a Model 15-KSR page printer with integral tape perforator, and a Model 14-XD Transmitter-Distributor. All this equipment is mounted on a steel system table providing power and interconnection for the units. It punches 5-unit 11/16" paper tape, and the machine can either print, or not print, while punching the tape. The Model 14 Transmitter-Distributor senses the perforations in the tape, and transmits the characters in the form of the five-unit baudot code. The steel table is 38" long, 24" wide, and 27" high. It has a shelf in back for the rectifier, and underneath is a chad receptacle. The M19 was available in Teletype branding, as military models TT-7/FG and TT-8/FG, or branded for Western Union Telegraph Company or Bell System.
