Remcon Quantum Six?

Post by F2B » 05 Jul 2020, 16:40

Does anyone have the documentation with schematic diagrams?
I'm looking for the receiver. It's the version with the 74LS73s decoder, not the BRY 39 s
I could draw up the diagram from the PC board, but its mighty hard :shock: discerning the types and values of components...

Had a look but I only have the info for the discrete version.

Attached are the scans for the Remcon Electronika 2000 Rx; this was a kit built 8 channel (IC Decoder) set for the Dutch market.

They may be similar very similar to the Quantum 6 Rc with the IC decoder so of some use.

Cheers

I think all the later Remcon receivers were similar, so what Shaun has already posted is probably the same. But here is the magazine article from the slightly earlier Strato 4+2 in case the Strato is "more similar" to your Rx. The only circuit diagram I have for the Quantum 6 has all-discrete components.

Great! :D
Undoubtedly, this brings me closer.

This is the Mark III.
I was looking for the Mark II, that essentially was a Q6 receiver, me thinking that would be more familiar in the UK......
Myself, back in 1969/70 I made the Mark I, my first reliable RC set and it still works.... :mrgreen:

Meanwhile the shop has long gone, probably even before I emigrated from Amsterdam.
And that's almost 40 years ago, go figure.... :o

And that would possibly be the right one, as I copied the 74LS decoder design and made it fit my MK I.
There was no need at all changing the LF circuitry, it worked from scratch....
Input was a 7413, double Schmitt Trigger, that must have been rather un critical.
Even more reason to believe the version with the BRY 39s had the same detector/ LF circuit.

So please, could you publish that all-discrete components one as well?

Once I've found them, I'll scan and post - I thought I'd previously scanned them for Shaun, but can't find them anywhere on my PC.

Found them.

I'd sent them to Shaun as raw jpg scans zipped together, I was looking for a pdf. I've pdf'd the Tx and Rx build articles from Radio Modeller together, I think the circuit diagrams are just about legible.

Yess! Thank you.

Closer again....
The Mk II has a 7413 double schmitt trigger for puls shaper, so I'll have alook where that fits in the picture, but this is a great help for starters.
