Zellweger Uster TCA-C

The first you notice on the front is of course the thermal printer which takes up the entire lefthand side.
At the righthand side we have a 7segment display(12digit long), a keypad with a vertical row of LEDs with function names beside them, a rotary function selector, and at the bottom a keylock, power connector and a D15 connector marked 'Exchange'.(This is probably to hoo it up to a telephone exchange?)
IT may not be immediately obvious, but the keys have been filed so that when one is in the lock, it doesn't protrude beyond the protective side panels.

DC? In.

TCA-C Telephone Call Analyser

I really wish I knew more about this piece of equipment.

The date is a guess based on some stickers on modules inside the unit. The RAM amount is based on the fact that I found 6 x 4118P (1KB) RAM chips on one module. Strangely enough, I didn't see any RAM on the CPU card.

  • Profanities, 'L337' speak, links to unrelated stuff like Pr0n and online gambling will result in your IP being banned, a message being sent to your ISP and anything else nasty I can think of...
  • Suspicious HTML in the comments field will also cause me to give you hell.
