pins which ensure proper positioning and a plastic
hook to ensure locking.
The operator replaces the cartridge as neces­
sary to ensure high quality printing. The follow­
ing text defines cartridge loading procedures:
1. Turn the device OFF.
2. Position the ribbon between the platen and
the print head mechanism.
NOTE: A segment of the ribbon is exposed
at the head of the cartridge (see
Figure 8-6).
3. Gently draw the cartridge away from the
print mechanism (a segment of tape will be
released).
4. Carefully position the cartridge on the
reference pins and the plastic locking clip.
5. Turn the tension knob on the face of the
cartridge to increase the ribbon tension.
6. Turn the device ON.
INTERCONNECTION/SYSTEM INTERFACE
The Keyboard Typewrite Console Attachment

Figure 8-6. Device Interconnection/System
Interface
illustrates the structure of the subsystem and its
relationship to the system.
The device controller is a microprogrammed
peripheral controller which attaches to the Level
6 Megabus and is capable of supporting up to 4
devices via a configurable series of adapters.
Device specific functionality is provided by the
adapter and certain device specific firmware in
the device controller.
PROGRAMMING CONSIDERATIONS
Level 6 software allows for the transfer and
receipt of data from and to the console through a
series of Input/Output programming commands.
These commands and their associated meanings
are summarized in Table 8-1.
