THE PRODUCTIVE POWER OF MAGNETIC STRIPED LEDGERS
A single I l ,ay, ldi~ ill& J L , I + on your ledgers gives
them a dramatrc new meaning In your accounting. Your ledgers now
dlrectly contribute to the speed, accuracy, simplic~ty and
product~vity of accounting and report writing.
CAPACITY-The magnetic Ink strtpe stores, In elec- tronic pulse
form, four 1 2 - d ~ g ~ t words plus slgn (52 pos~tions of memory)
For example In Payroll you can store: Earnings-to-Date Comb~ned WH
& FlCA Tax-to-Date State or Other Tax-to-Date Federal WH Tax
Exempt Earnings, and Withholding Tax Rate. NOTE that storage can
conslst of BALANCES and ACCOUNT DATA, and IS NOT NECESSARILY
RESTRICTED to one Item of data per word of memory
ACCESSIBILITY-The data stored In the stripes IS in machine
readable form and is automatically and elec- tronically accessible
through the E 1400 console or the automatic ledger reader.
FUNCTION-Permits the automatic and electronic p~ckup of account
data to speed and simpl~fy account- ing and report wrltlng. Access
to any data in the ledger stripe may be selectively programed to
speed and sirnp- lify report writing.
FORMS ECONOMY-Both sides of your ledger can be striped
permitting full use of the form and prov~ding reduced forms cost
and storage requirements.

AUTOMATIC DATA PICKUP THROUGH THE E 1 4 0 0 CONSOLE The operator
simply places the magnetic striped ledger between the self-squaring
form guides. As the Auto- matic Form Alignment feature moves the
form to the next posting I~ne, the stored data is automatically and
electronically read, checked and transferred to the sys- tem's core
When she lists the ver~ficat~on number and transaction data, she
activates the processing run. Correct account selection is verified
electronically. The ledger is updated, and automatically ejected as
the new account data is stored in the stripe. It's that simple.
THE RESULTS . . . Speed-Account Data pickup is faster because
it's done electron~cally. Accuracy-What the E 1400 does
automatically, the operator cannot do wrong. Productiv~ty-More work
In less time with less effort.
PLUS m AUTOMATED FORMS HANDLING
Just drop the forms between the self-squarlng form guides. .
With the Burroughs E 1400 all your operator has to do IS drop
the forms in the self-squaring farm guides Automatically and
independently the forms are moved to the next posting line. When
the posting n done, they're ejected for easy operator removal.
Alignment is accomplished through the sensrng of fine- line
perforations In each form. These perforations do not impede
prtntour readab~lity or reduce available prlnt area. Many forms
sizes and types may be used.

THE PRODUCTIVE POWER OF THE SOLID STATE PROCESSOR
The E 1400 Electron~c Processor util~zes the latest solid state
techniques to prov~de powerful electron~c capab~l~ties
CORE MEMORY-A Four-word magnetic core memory stores the data
read from the magnetic ink striped ledger. After this data is
updated, it's read out onto the strrped ledger automat~cally.
ELECTRONIC COMPUTATION-Solid state circuitry means the E 1400
can perform computations at electron~c speeds. All computations
take only a fracnon of a second and are within the print cycle
tlme, permlttlng greater productivity
AUTOMATIC DECISION MAKING-Sol~d state logic pro-vides the
ability to automatically select pre-programed sub- routines based
on processing cond~t~ons, e.g. sklpplng the F.1 C.A. computation
when maximum contribut~on has been made. This eliminates the
possibil~ty of operator mis-judge- ment. reduces the chance of
error and m~nim~zes operator partic~patton.
ELECTRONIC FACTOR STORAGE-Constant factors such as tax rates,
discaunt rates, etc. may be programed into the processor. Factors
may be introduced automatically into the accounting routine through
e~ther program or operator selec- tion. Processors, with from 0 to
27 factor storage posit~ons,
YW BENEFIT BECAUSE these electronic capabilities dramatically
simp/[email protected] complex accounting routhes, speed their completion and
assure maximum accuracy in any accounting job.
THE PRODUCTIVE POWER OF VERSATILE, POWERFUL PROGRAM CONTROL
Maximum effective use of the processing capabilities of the E
1400 is achieved through the exclusive, proven-in-use Burroughs
Program Control Center. It features a simple though powerful
programing technique which obs.oletesexternallyattached control
bars and other single job program devices.
FUNCTION-It directs and controls all carriage movement, print
formatting and arithmetic functions; and initiates commands for the
processor and adjuncts to perform their respective functions.
LARGE CAPACITY-It contains the programs for four or more
separate and complete accounting routlnes. The program control
center is easily removable so you can have all the programing power
you need by purchasing additional program control centers.
SIMPLIFIED PROGRAM CHANGE-It's as easy as changing channels on a
T.V. The simple turn of the program selector does it. No bars to
juggle or other adjustments.
PROGRAMING FLEXIBILITY-The con-trol center IS deslgned to do
your jobs the way you want them done. No need to modlfy your
requirements to meet machine limitations
ASSURANCE AGAINST OBSOLESENCE -Changes in your routlnes requlre
only a change In the program control center.
YOU BENEFIT BECAUSE the Program Control Center has the capacity
and flexibility to obtain maximum productivity from the E 1400 .
Burroughs not only does the programing but also delivers your
system pre-programed to your specific requirements.
THE PRODUCTIVE POWER OF AUTOMATIC MAGNETIC STRIPED LEDGER
The so l~d state Burroughs A 4003 Automat~c Ledger Reader IS a
powerful Input component that reads the data stored rn magnetic
strlpes and trans- mits ~t to the console for prlnt out It
sequent~ally reads up to 48 cards per minute OPERATING
SIMPLICITY-The operator simply places the ledgers In the feed
hopper (500 ledger capac~ty) and pushes the start button to
lnltlate the read and prlnt cycle Ledgers accumulate sequentrally
In the stackmg hopper Read~ng does not destroy data stored In
strlpes A set of SIX Operator/System Commun~cat~onL~ghts display
the operating cond~t~on and prov~de full control over the unlt
AUTOMATIC TRIAL BALANCING-The A 4003 electron~cally reads and
transmits the complete data stored in the strlpes to the E 1400
Console for prlnt out and trial balanc~ng. AUTOMATIC BALANCE
TRANSFER-At the end of a spec~fic per~od data can be transferred to
new ledgers with ease. The operator merely places the old ledgers
In the feed~ng hopper and the new ledger In the console carnage All
the data stored in the strlpe is transferred automatically
AUTOMATIC MANAGEMENT REPORTS-lndrv~dual magnetlc str~ped ledgers
may be read consecutively or selectively by the A 4003 to generate
automat~callya variety of reports. Selectwe read of ledgers IS
accomphshed by s~mply punching holes in the top of the ledgers (as
YOU BENEFIT BECAUSE-tile A 4003 permits you to do time con-
suming jobs like trial balance, balance transfer and report
writing, automatically. It provides more timely data, easier,
faster and electronically accurate.
THE PRODUCTIVE POWER FOR A VARIETY OF OUTPUT
COMPLETE ALPHABETIC AND NUMERIC PRINTOUT FOR HARD COPY RECORDS
Burroughs E 1400 Systems recognize your preference for easily
accessible, read- able, historical hard copy records.
The E 1400 console accommodates a w~de variety of magnetic
striped and conven- t~onal ledgers, records and reports includmg
cut and continuous journals. It permits posting one, two or even
three original records at the same time. And it produces a detail
exact-copy journal as an automatic by-product.
Complete alphabetic and numeric printmg output IS provided
through a rapid seml- gang printer and a compact 84 character unit
printer. Print output covers a 220 character print~ng line.
Thrs forms and printout flexibility means you can handle a wide
variety of appllca- ttons, completely and eas~ly.
FOR SUBSEQUENT PROCESSING
Many applications have unusually complex per~odic statist~cal
and management report requirements. To satisfy these requlrements,
E 1400 Systems are available with tape or card punch~ng capability
through a Tape Punch unlt: or a Card Punch Controller Selected
alphanumeric data is captured in tape or cards as an automatrc
by-product of posting accountmg records or preparing intertm
reports. Electronic features such as echo check and panty check
prove the accuracy of punching. Buffered punching elmmates any
poss~ble delay In the processing speed of your system. The
commun~cation system on the console prov~des the status and control
over the punching operation.
The punched tape or cards produced are compatible with larger
