Unknown Physics Equipment

Discussion in 'Supporting Physics' started by JCDUDS123, Jul 12, 2019.

  1. We're just about to move all of our science equipment into our new home (school) and have managed to come across some equipment that none of the staff can identify.

    Do any of you have any ideas about what they are or what they're used for?

    I can't open the images
     
  3. I think you have to right click on the images and open them in a new tab to view them...

    site blocked by our filters. Can you not add to here? If not you could put them in a message to me.
     
  5. A bit of googling suggests that it is a "intervalometer" designed for taking exposures with a film camera. Who knows what it was used for, but probably obsolete now. It also might be valuable as far as I can tell from ebay listings.

    yup. I suspect I have been flagged up to SLT. Nothing unusual there my google searches often result in that.
     
  11. Any suggestions on sites to use to make a url for the picture? Apologies for any issues caused... :oops:

    it only works for me if I upload directly to here from my phone, I can't upload from my work computer.
     
  14. The transformator is a power supply for a Zeiss microscope lamp. The Variotimer would be to use (often with a movie camera) to take a sequence of shots to create a stopframe movie of whatever the microscope was viewing. You don't happen to have the microscope as well, do you?
