Documation M1000L Card Reader

Throughput: 1000 cards per minute
Hopper Capacity: 1000 cards
Host Interface: TTL active low
Model: M1000L
Serial Number: 7602342
Notes: This unit was used to count ballots in Harris County, TX: it has the chads to prove it. I built a USB interface for this reader, which was designed and coded by Brian Knittel. It works great, and I can read card decks from a Windows system. I worked on a similar unit, the M600L in the Air Force in the mid-80s.
