Info re Pathe 16 motor.

Recommended Posts

I have a Pathe 16 in pretty good shape.    I also have the external electric motor. What I don't have and am looking for, is info on the motor.  And a power cord if possible. It has no markings on it.  I have fed it 12v DC, and 24 v DC. Not a murmur. The motor turns over by hand fine, no seized mechanical stuff. The switches seem OK.  I am wondering if it is a 110 or 220v AC motor. Anyone know?

Hi Simon, thanks for your reply. My camera is a Pathe pro 16 AT.   The motor has a sticker on it- Pathe, Made in Western Germany.   I just  discovered that the motor itself has 3 wires going to it, which tells me that it is an AC motor. As it is French or German, I assume that it would be 250v, 50 cycles. As I live in the USA, I would either need to move to Europe or get a very long extension cord to operate it.    I will attach a photo of the motor, in case you can identify it. Many thanks.

Yeah, the tension. Mind you, that motor was made for 220 Volt, yet we have 230 Volt. Just of late I had someone here with an Arriflex 16 SR II and an old, half-melted charger. It gets dangerously hot.

Why have you fallen for the WEBO M?
