The DCAs (Decimal Counter Assembly) in those counters (5243 series, 5245
series) came in low and high speed versions. The -6016 is the normal low
speed 600kHz version used in most of the count positions and provides +1224
BCD output to the rear panel connector. The -6003 version is the option 03
variation of it that provided 1248 BCD output with the '1' state
negative.(as opposed to the -6002 which was the same but with '1' state
I have schematics if you need 'em- my 5245M still rolls along quite nicely
since it knows I have the service info!
