Default Airmec 701.

Split from here...........


Hi all,
I`m an absolute new one on these forum & sorry for my english quality too...

Yesterday I picked up my first (for me uknowed UK) Airmec Type 701 signal generator and would like ask you: so who knows...

Im missing all descriptions and it is optically in really very good condition, but needs (of course) some repairing/tuning...

Tnx in advance!
Karl.

Karl,

Attached are scans of the sales sheet for the Generator, plus a better scan of the picture on page 1. Don't worry about what they look like on the screen, they'll print OK. If you want the hi-res versions send me your e-mail address by PM. They are big files - 17Mb or so.
I'm afraid I haven't got any more information.
It looks interesting

Alan

Hallo Alan,

Thank you very much for your nice work!

What for me -of course- further an important subject is; to find some schema (or in optimale case a manual?) too, but I think it will not be very real?
Internally it has 14 tubes, overall is very clean, but somebode befor me has forget lot of the srews to drive back _OK it was (maybe) over years staying in a laboratory cupboard.
The output signal has too much amplituden differences between bands & vs tuning....
The modulation seems to be not perfect too, I will it check exacter in the next time.
Can you tell me pls how big was these vendor, & is it still existing?

With best wishes!
Karl

Greetings Karl
I have just found your previous posting regarding the Airmec 701. I've had one of these since 1992 and would like to restore it; did you ever find the circuit diagram (schema)?
With best wishes
Guy

Aimec / Racal 701.
With the Specification which AlanBeckett has posted, I suspect that it is a minature valve version of the Airmec 201, for which the manual is available on the Electrojumble.org.uk site. (Thanks Roy).
The specification looks the same, apart from the different front panel, and the valve types look comparable. Do let us know if this is so.
Often Airmec and Racal changed the model numbers for apparently cosmetic reasons. I have a Televet 877 unit + manual for model 877 (using 12AT7s and EF91), and an older manual for a similar model, Televet 259, with identical spec and appearance. using ECF80s and EF91.
I have copies of the 201, 877 & 259 manuals (as well as 853 Wave analyser 252 LF Oscillator and 279 large screen oscilloscope) if you cannot locate them. wme_bill.
