Two Creed High speed paper tape punches were connected to EDSAC II in about 1962. They ran at the amazing speed of 300 rows per second. They had a tendency to jam and had to be taken to pieces to undo the jam causing a considerable maintenance problem. Eventually they were replaced by Teletype punches operating reliably at 110 rows per second.
