US 3784802 A
Abstract
A comparatively small electronic inventory control device for indicating the current stocks of goods, individually or in succession. The item numbers of the goods are selectively entered by push-button switches. New information for updating the stocks is entered by the same switches. Numerals for item number and the information are differentiated by separate manual switch means. A rotary memory means having addresses corresponding to the item numbers of the goods is used for storing and updating the stock information of the goods.
