      I think *some* of HP's paper tape punches and readers use the 82032
parallel interface. It's a 16 bit parallel interface with several
additional handshaking lines. Each data line can be set as Input only,
Output only or In and Out. I think have one around here somewhere that came
off of a PT punch. You should have grabbed the PT punch, I think the Facit
is what HP used or perhaps I should say one of the ones that they
used. What kind of connector is on your PT reader? I think most of the
devices that used the 82032 used the same 50 pin Amphenol connector as most
SCSI devices.
