    Durst M670 Transformator question

    Hi,

    I am offered a Durst M670 with color head and while I really want to buy the enlarger, it is missing the transformator.
    Does anyone know where I can get a transformator that is not breaking the bank that would work with the enlarger?
    Unfortunately I do have no clue what transformator it needs and I am not capable of doing any electrical DIY projects.

    Kindest regards
    Dennis

    I don't know (I have the B&W head on mine), but I would probably try and see if I could find a fully working one first and foremost, finding parts (trough eBay mostly) can be hard.
    - It is maybe possible to canibalize another m670, but then you are stuck with two...(or 1.5 enlargers).

    You have something from the official Durst shop though, the transformator for the color head is called "COLITRA 350 230 VN" -I think- (230 stands for 230 voltage, so if you are in the US, this will most likely not work properly)

    Still, if you are new to this and want to get started, try and find a fully working enlarger is my advice. (they are pretty cheap nowdays anyway)

    Thank you Helinophoto,
    I am in Germany, so V230 would actually be perfect. The enlarger is still sitting in a box and looks brand new, except the missing trafo ... The durst original would definitely be worth a shot, even though it costs as much as I have to pay for the whole enlarger ...

    It seems that the M670 color takes a colamp 100S lamp which is a 12V 100W lamp. In this case just take the enlarger, go to the next electrician and ask him to connect a standard halogen transformer for 12V and 100W. It's cheaper as DIY of course and most probably a neighbor or friend can do this as well.

    Something like this: http://www.amazon.de/Elektronischer-...5257891&sr=8-1 should work.
    Regards,
    Andreas

    Oh wow, that is really quite a difference in price. to the EUR 167 the trafo would cost from Durst .. even with EUR 50 for the work and another EUR 20 for cables added into ...

    Thank you for the advice
