Getting started

#1

Beitrag von PaulHeller »

I’m finally back in Austria again. I will be setting up a teleprinter and a new I-Telex station here. The teleprinter will arrive hopefully tomorrow. Details to be provided once I have the machine.

I am really starting from ground zero. If this were in the U.S. it would be easy!

I brought with me basic tools, wire, multimeter and such. I will be ordering a soldering iron from reichelt because mine would not work in Europe. I’ll be ordering I-Telex boards from Henning ASAP and begging and borrowing other things no doubt.

I need to get a small rack enclosure and the necessary extra items beyond just the I-Telex boards. Does anyone have a shopping list or list of part numbers for Reichelt to make ordering easier?

Hi Paul,
there is no complete list of items to order. But for a quick start you should not forget to order a back plane with the boards. Everybody has an own preferred solution but common enclosure is something like this from Reichelt:

https://www.reichelt.de/systemgehaeuse- ... ol_6&nbc=1
(you would also need to select the rails and the "thread rails" P/N BGT 384-2)

Frontcovers for the itelex PCBs you might get here (in case there are any left):

power supply (transformer) might be available from Henning as well or you might order a separate transformer from Reichelt, fuse-holder etc.

REF: viewtopic.php?f=10&t=2107

maybe other members have a stored Reichelt list for all the small stuff which is needed as well

Hi Paul,

Nice to have you back in Europe again!

I hope to visit Germany later in the year, so perhaps we can meet up for a socially distanced beer :)

Please shout if you think I will have anything you need.

Thank you Patrick and Björn.

Sean, I look forward to seeing you.

Sadly the machine that was supposed to be delivered to me today is “on hold”. The current owner has become ill. Fortunately not the virus, so hopefully it is not a major delay.
