The BX-2012 is electrically equivalent to a BX-1000 or BX-2000, but has been 'specially tested for decoding BCD', which is Burroughs-ese for 'more fairy dust'. The BX-2012 is among the rarest Beam-X types, with very few known examples.
The BX-2013 is currently uncharacterized, but is believed to be a variant of the BX-2012.
