At the theatre where I volunteer there are a number of MAC 600 movers.
These are getting a bit long in the tooth, and one of them has a defective stepper motor for one of the color wheels. That has been verified.
We ordered a stepper on line but it is not correct for our older MAC 600. The original stepper has a directly wired cable with a connector on the other end. The replacement stepper has a connector on the stepper motor and where this connect juts out makes the motor not fit through the cutout in the plate that covers the lamp. So even if the motor might be an electrical replacement it is not a physical replacement.
So, options are:
Find a used MAC 600 for parts and grab a stepper from there.
Find the specifications for the original stepper and purchase a suitable replacement. For this to work I will either have to reverse engineer the requirements or find a suitable schematic and specifications for the original stepper motor.
So has anyone else been down this route before? Did you find a suitable stepper motor for the older MAC 600, and if so do you have a schematic and parts information that you would be willing to share?
