Hello,

I'm going to purchase a battery for the CAMEFLEX CM3 (a model converted to 2-perf), but the electric connector of the camera is totally unknown for me. If someone can recognize it on the picture, please let me know...
Sorry for the bad picture, but it's what I have on hand right now...

Our latest toy just arrived...

We are in the same boat….need to know what the polarity is for the fm20 motor?

I'm planning on running it with a 6s lipo battery 22v…anyone tried this?

 

Just afraid to guess the polarity incase I blowup the motor ….so though i should ask here?

It could be an early type of Cannon connector.
Is the collar a screw type or a bayonet type?
Can you put pictures from the side of the connector?

Hi Jean-Louis thanks for the reply.

 

yep its a screw type connector.

 

Also does the motor have to b on the camera to work? I'm wondering if the little spring loaded winder my have to be pressed in to allow the motor to spin.  Or can I spin it on a bench?

cheers miles

What's the connector in your first post? It is different than the other pictures.

I'm beginning to suspect that the above connector with the three male pins is not original Eclair.

Yep ..i will venture inside the motor today. Do the eclair motors normally only have two brushes? When I apply any voltage the the two visible brushes it shorts…so unless there is more brushes that tells me there is a short in the wiring…..ps..the first post (picture) was someone else's question. :)

I been building this partly 3d printed partly aluminium animation motor. It does 1-3 second exposures and has a nice new frame counter curtisy of ebay. I'm using a reed switch to stop the geared 15prm motor each frame. The reed switch is both a normally open and normally closed switch.

So NC is used to stop the motor after each exposure and NO is used to trigger the frame counter. 

 

Powered by a 3cell lipo so far s good.
