Konvas 18EP 16APK Motor mystery

Recommended Posts

I recently purchased a Konvas 7M from a nice bloke called Sergei while I was shooting a documentary in Vladivostok. It hasn't been used for 10 years but looks like it will go OK. It has a 18EP-16APK motor and controller that I can't seem to find any info on - it looks like a 17 motor but with an external controller. Does anyone have any info on how I can get it going? A manual? Circuit diagrams? I can get Russian texts translated if need be - any help would be great.

You can visit on my site and check infformation about electrical motors of Konvas cameras.

 

18EP-16APK motor have different speed control electronics and other style of electronics from 17EP-16 APK motor.

 

If you send me letter on olex@a-teleport.com, i can send you more technical ifnormation.

I have experience repair of 18Ep-16 APK motor.

This is motor have crystal sync speed 24 fps, 25 fps, and variable speeds ( not crystal sync ) up to 32 fps.

The motor use 12 v battery for speeds up to 25 fps and additional 12+ 3 v battery for speed up to 32 fps,

Have a few modules : crystal sync module, varuable speed module, battery control module, battery.

But, you need study of user manual up to connect battery, because, the conenct battery with reversal polarity distroy electronics.
