Gauged To Perfection
Perfection of the finished product requires precise control in the manufacture of jet fuel. Such control is vital in the refining of oil, as it is in most industries. And, with the coming of age of automation, the controls must not only be precise â€”they must also be supervised automatically.
That’s the function of such electronic computing systems as the Remington Rand Univac Scientific. Its ability to control, simultaneously and automatically, a wide variety of input-output devices makes the Univac Scientific ideally suited to on-line operations.
Fully automatic control requires a computing system which is able, for example, to take a meter reading, then â€” acting on its own instantaneous decision â€” throw a switch, set a rheostat, or adjust a valve. This the Univac Scientific can do easilyâ€”and much more. Operating at extremely high speeds with superb efficiency, the Univac Scientific provides large storage capacity, great programming versatility, and far greater reliability than am computer in its class.
