The Hell ITA2 (Baudot) punched tape to Morse mechanical translators were standard issue at the
Swedish coast stations for transmitting navigational and weather information over
the MF telegraphy network. They became phased-out when computer based message
handling systems were introduced during the late 80s.

The unit at Grimeton most probably comes
from Gothenburg Radio/SAG, and is on loan from the Gothenburg Radio Museum.
