Yes, it is an interesting "programmable solid state controller"; I hesitate
to call it a computer :). When I worked for Nabisco at the Richmond, VA
plant, we had about 25 or so of them to control the mixing of ingredients.
With the maintenance module and the flow chart that came with the
schematics, it was pretty trivial to troubleshoot these things to the
component level.
