    This thread is almost a decade old, probably best to PM and possibly google people, might not be active here any longer. PS, I recommend Profoto personally, no risk of death by arc....

    Hi my name is Pete and I am new to this site and I hope this is posting in the correct place. I collect and restore antique radio transmitters and receivers. Recently, I bought out an entire collection of an estate which included two Ascorlight Model A10 and also a metal tag marked Part B10. They are quite heavy and each has a chrome handle to carry them. I was curious to know what kind of purpose they were used for. They appear in good shape but very dirty.
    Thanks in advance.

    Peter, I have an Ascor QC1000 P/S that refuses to charge up. (no whine)
    You state you "rebuild" them. Do you have a source for schematics, etc?
    I would like to repair it for myself. Nobody here in So CA wants to attempt. - Karl

    I doubt he would share those, if he's trying to run a business, he wants you to pay him to fix it ... He would be foolish to just hand them over, but anything is possible.

    A picture of what you have might be helpful.
    In general these are electronic flash units meant for use in a photographic studio.
    Sounds like you may have just the power supplies which provide the connections to the camera and the light which would have a flash tube along with a tungsten "modeling light" used to mimic the light produced by the flash tube so that the light can be positioned.
    Most of the electrical bits are for powering the flash tube.

    By the way, Welcome to APUG!

    Ascorlight Model A10

    Hi bdial,

    Thanks for your welcome! Here are some images of the (power supply?) that you requested. The first two pictures is how they came before I disassembled one of them. It can be put back together with no problem. I am glad no one had turned these units on for many years. I was astonished and grateful I wasn't injured as I discovered a bank of 18 large Sprague... 400-475volt capacitors that were in series located in the bottom of the container. I also took an image of a strange type of light bulb which you can see plugged in on the circuit board.I was curious to know its specs. Very nicely made units through out.

    Thanks for your response,

    Peter
