Hi, 

 

Great to have replies, and hear from others, who may be getting to my age!

 

I recall the SAB I first used was a 12v dry battery, called a GI470 ( I think) Crompton, wax coated, with two brass screw terminals on top, the battery was the size of the shelf, (Similar size to our 7Ah now) and the module was fitted to the top of the battery with the brass nuts, with a ATS on the front of the module, (more a cct board with a relay and microswitch) no rear tamper, no strobe, just the old style Friedland grey bell.

I recall one of my first jobs as an apprentice was cleaning down old rusty bell boxes, priming and painting, in those days the signalling and control eq was all rented, luckily I soon moved onto tube and wire frames!! what fun they were!

For some reason the Integras I’ve seen all have Cequra boards in them. Did they develop the Cequra first? I think the Integra came out in 1991 to compete with the Flashguard.

When I said Flashguard I think i was referring to the early 1990s Volumatic/Klaxon ones like the XL Plus etc. That’s just what I was told by someone who used to work for CQR. 

On a different note, does anyone know the actual model for the CQR Anti-Foam bell box? (Shaped like a tombstone with vents in the bottom - circa early 1990s.)

I was told a while back that it was known as the SO005 but that seems like a bit of an odd name! (I’ve attached a picture of one).
