On wirebound networks, the tape teleprinter Siemens Stg 68 has been used as teleprinter for telegrams, on which the paper stripes from the teletypewriter were glued.
The equipment came in two heavy wooden crates (Crate A with the teletype machine and accessories, 44 kg and Crate B with the power supply, single tone telegraphy adaptor (Einton-Telegraphiegerät 60) and an adaptor for simultaneous transmissions (Simultangerät 60), 131 kg.


CCITT No.2 / Baudot; 50 Baud

The Siemens & Halske Stg-68 is a tape teleprinter operated with baudot code signals (CCITT No.2. / Baudot Code 50 Baud). The teleprinter comes with a keybord, a punched tape transmitter and a perforator and has an automatic "Here is" key which emits the station identification.

Here is a typical setup with the teleprinter Stg-68 and the Speisegerät SG-61 (power supply), Simultangerät SIM-60 (simultaneous use adaptor) and Eintontelegraphiegerät ETT-60 (single tone telegraphy adaptor) is shown.

The CCITT-encrypting device Telecrypto Model 61 can be used to transmit encrypted messages.
