The BX-2003, BX-2004 and BX-2005 are unregistered, uncharacterized Beam-X variants, used in early Xerox high speed photocopiers.

Like the BX-2000, the BX-2004 and BX-2005 are equipped with a mu shield. Unshielded Beam-X types require a center-to-center spacing of two inches when installed adjacently, but shielded models permit much tighter adjacent installations.


Burroughs BX-2004, an unspecified Beam-X variant.


Burroughs BX-2005, another unidentified shielded variant.
