Hello,

 

I have got my hand on a Arriflex 16 St, serie 0600.

 

I have some questions about it:

 

The motor doesn't permit to change the speed - so is it a constat 24 frames motor?

 

It has someting on the lateral, like another motor. From the info on the internet, the ST models where with out that motor. That motor, if it is a motor, it has no Arriflex mark on it. It look like a upgrade on the camera. But what is it for? I have some ideas, but i will kindly as you to give me you opinion.

 

The camera motor and the other motor are connected, and at the end of the cable it has a wierd plug.

 

Below are photos

What you refer to the other motor is most probably some kind of sync pulse generator.

Yes we have a 16St with a synch pulse output fitted to the same spot. Yours could be for use with a particular blimp.

 

Here's ours:

I see. Thank you.

 

And regarding the motor? 

 

What power should i give it? I know that the motors go from 8 to 12 v. The last owner said that it worked on 24 V.... but i would not risk to try it at 24.

I believe the main motor with the power transistor on top takes 12VDC.

As i searched on the internet, the plug is similar to the plug on ARRITECHNO.
