Wang Computer Hardware Catalogue

We ask you to pardon us as we embark on a long term project of cataloging Wang hardware. Photographs of many of these pieces of equipment will appear in the Large Systems Collection which are also under development. If you have any information you would like to see included, please send it by e-mail to: rweasel@gmail.com. Thank you.

Wang Peripherals
Model Description
2209 A reel-to-reel tape drive which records at a single density of 800 bpi in the NZRI mode. It can read and write standard IBM compatible 1/2 inch x 2400 foot tapes.
2223 An alphanumeric/BASIC keyword keyboard combines a standard typewriter keyboard and a BASIC language keyword keyboard with access to a Character Edit ROM, standard on the (2200S or C, optional on the 2200A or B.
2227B The Buffered Asynchronous Communications Controller that has 1K and supports baud rates of 110 to 9600. The 2227B will work with a suitably configured System 2200S, T, B or C.
2228 Currently three terminal emulator programs are available for use with the 2228 controller.The programs emulate the binary synchronous communications (BSC) protocol of IBM 2780, 3780 and 3741 terminals. With these programs and the 2228, a 2200B, C, S or T system can serve as a remote batch work station or an IBM 360/370 system.
2231W A line printer that can output up to 132 characters per line and prints at a rate of 200 characters per second.
2234
A Hopper Feed Punched Card reader that reads information in binary or hollerith code on standard 80-column cards with comply with ANSI X3.11 1969 Card Specifications. The input and output hopppers have a capacity of up to 550 (.7 mil thickness) cards with a reading rate of 285 cards per minute. The 2234A can be used with Systems 2200A, B, C and S.
2265V-1 A 75MB removable disc drive that has a rotational speed of 3600 rpm, and an average seek time of 30 milliseconds.
2265V-2 A 288MB removable disc drive that has a rotational speed of 3600 rpm and an average seek time of 30 milliseconds.
2265V-3 A 640MB fixed disc drive that has a rotational speed of 3600 rpm and an average seek time of 25 milliseconds.
2267V-1
A 76MB removable 9 inch disc drive that has a rotational speed of 3600 rpm, and an average seek time of 30 milliseconds.
2268V-2
A 147MB 8 inch fixed disc drive that has a rotational speed of 3510 rpm and an average seek time of 20 milliseconds.
2268V-3
A 314MB 9 inch fixed disc drive that has a rotational speed of 3600 rpm and an average seek time of 20 milliseconds.
2268V-4
A 454MB 9 inch fixed disc drive that has a rotational speed of 3600 rpm and an average seek time of 20 milliseconds.
2273-1
A rebadged Dataproducts B300-24 printer.
2280V-1
A disk drive with a 15MB fixed platter and a 15MB removable disc pack with a rotational speed of 3600 rpm and an average seek time of 20 milliseconds.
2280V-2
A disk drive with a 15MB removable disc pack with 15MB and 30 MB fixed platters which rotate at a speed of 3600 rpm with an average seek time of 30 milliseconds.
2280V-3
A disk drive with a 15MB removable disc pack with a 15 MB and two 30 MB fixed platters which rotate at a speed of 3600 rpm with an average seek time of 30 milliseconds.
2293V
The VS Small Data Storage Cabinet is a compact peripheral device that combines two stand alone disc drives in one compact unit. The 2293V is produced in three comfigurations: C1 - one 2267V-1 76 MB removable disc drive, and one empty shelf; C2 - one 2267V-1 removable disc and one 2268V-1 76 MB fixed disc drive; and C3 - one 2267V-1 removable and one 2268V-2 147 MB fixed disc drive
2295V
The VS Large Data Storage Cabinet occupies less space and costs less than several stand alone drives of the same capacity. The 2295V is produced in four configurations: C2 - two 2267V-1 76MB removable disc drives and two empty sections; C4 - one 2267V-1 76MB removable disc drive, one 2268V-2 147 MB fixed disc drive and two empty sections; C5 one 2268V-4 454 MB fixed disc drive and three empty sections; C6 - one 2267V-1 76 MB removable disc drive, one 2268V-3 314MB fixed disc drive and two empty sections or C7 - two 2268V-3 314 MB fixed disc drives and two empty sections.
5573
A rebadged Dataproducts B300-24 printer.
5574
A rebadged Dataproducts B600-22 printer.
5575
A rebadged Dataproducts BP1500 printer.
PCS-II
The PCS-II is one of the smallest members of the 2200 family, and is completely contained within a 2236 terminal casing. With 8K ram memory, expandable to 32K, it runs a 42.5K BASIC written in ROM, and is fitted with a 5-1/4 inch floppy disc drive.
SP9139
A 3 position BNC/TNC switchbox.
WA3451
A full duplex modem that supports asynchronous or synchronous data communications. The modem operates over switched telephone lines at either 1200 or 300 bps. It is a rebadged Racal-Vadic VA3451.
