The Burroughs Self-Scan Panaplex display


I salvaged one from some communications controller

The Burroughs display is one line: 222 columns by 7 rows.
The unit contains the glass display, bezel, controller card.
Only ONE PC board in it with an empty socket (no character generator)
the board's browned/discolored from all the resistors
Burroughs Self Scan SSD0132-0039
part no. 2557 9640 REV

controller PCB label:
ASSY 045  2557 9699 REV C

The raw display has 11 pins on right and left ends.
The controller has 24 contacts, only 13 are wired.



These MIGHT be new, unused.
2 controller cards
The safety clips are still on the PC board.

The foam behind the glass seems to be coming out.
