Rebuilding the battery packs

When looking at rebuilding some Argus 4 battery packs I was very pleased to see that they are held together with screws rather than the awful ultrasonic welding used by some companies.

I have owned a P4428 and one function always puzzled me. The PAN/Chop button. Whilst I understand the principle of the Pyro-Electric Vidicon tube and the switch providing either a spiral chopper wheel induced change in scene (Chop mode) or a camera induced change (Pan mode), how did EEV ensure that ...

Remote control details

The remote control is the Philips IR remote RC5 or RC6 protocol. A simple universal remote control will work fine. E2V Argus helpfully decided to use a standard protocol and buttons. They even used relabelled universal remote controls themselves. A good cost saving for production. The One for All se...

Hi, My name is Fraser and I have just joined this great new forum. I used to use thermal imaging cameras in my job but have also become an avid collector of the technology over the past couple of decades. I both collect and repair thermal camera technology. My collection includes the following camer...
