Re: OT: recommendation for outdoor AA cells?

rick
 

we have several AMZN Blink motion-sensing cameras. 3 of them are mounted outdoors (WA state). Blink recommends using lithium AA batteries for power, and they claim 2 year battery life. I think all three are still running, as well as the indoor cameras, and this is well beyond the 2-year guesstimate for battery life. Battery life would depend on how often the cameras are accessed, and ours are not always armed, but they're always on. I wouldn't put ordinary alkaline AA batteries in these units based on the battery life, and more importantly that these batteries live to leak all over your electronic gear.

Re: Fixing a 7603 Power Supply

 

My remark about working plug-ins turns out to have been prophetic rather than merely sarcastic: the 7B53A that I obtained "for parts, not working" is, in fact, not working. The big daughter board (670-1864) is dirty and badly corroded along the top inter-board connectors, and the corrosion is also present on the main board ((670-2257) along the mating pins for the same connectors. It's actually some of the worst damage I've seen in a scope so far, and that includes a 5103N that was literally filled with dog food. I'd even say that this is worse than the 5103N that arrived with the CRT shattered in shipment.

I verified that the horizontal plug-in was not working by tracing back from the vertical deflection pins on the CRT through the vertical amplifier.

At the moment that only leaves me with the 7B53A that came with the 7623A, which had suffered some severe kinetic trauma. I could probably rebuild that unit with parts from this one (or vice versa), but I've already got another horizontal plug-in on the way (as part of an entire scope that is known to be working). I may still try to disassemble this 7B53A and see if a) the damage is as severe on the main board, and b) if I can make one working 7B53A from two damaged ones.

I could also put one of the vertical amps in the horizontal bay and feed it a sawtooth. It's worth a try, at least.

It does not feel like it, but I think that this is progress.

Re: Semi-OT: protoboards as seen in (aftermarket) 7K plugin 'Automatic 9-16 Point Rasterizer'

Clark Foley
 

If you are interested in the 7000 series board, it appears to have been cut down to size. Take a close look at the edge of the board. Its inboard edge is not quite parallel to the hole pattern. The rasterizing gadget was likely made from the 7000 series kit that I listed earlier.

Viking seems to be part of Eaton, and it's not clear from their website
whether they still make card edge connectors. You could probably substitute
any manufacturers card edge connector for the Viking part. Maybe you could
have the guide arms 3D printed.
You may want to try EDAC (edac.net). Mouser (and Digikey probably) carries a large selection of their card edge connectors.
Maybe not necessarily an exact number of contacts, but still a large choice of number of positions and pitches, with eyelets or PCB pins for soldering.
For example, 76 pins adequate for 7000 series plugin (EDAC 345-076-520-201) is available (PCB pins, not eyelet).
Prices are of course quite a bit higher than what you would found on aliexpress.
