Falcon's Control System for Horizontal Loom.
18th c French Industrial Industrial Arts
Paris. Musée des Arts et Metiers.
Each card contains the coding for an individual weaving cycle. Each hole determines that the corresponding thread be lifted; the absence of a hole; that it rest below the cross thread. Damage to the coding system required only replacement of that card where the damage occurred as opposed to Bouchon's system which required replacement of the whole roll.
