IBM 650 system

IBM 650 system

This 650 system has all the units of a complete basic system with the processor, power supply and IBM 533 card unit. It seems to have the floating point feature. However, all units are heavily cannibalized in specific areas. The processor is missing most lights and switches. The power supply may be missing one logic gate, which would probably be part of the floating point. In the card unit most of the wiring is cut, though little seems to be missing. The card unit is also missing some covers. Please see the IBM 650 page linked from the Mainframes page in the regular collection site for more information.
