EMT 240 remote - help needed

I have an EMT 240 goldfoil and Neve 1762 remote module, but no remote cable or pinouts for either one. I Googled but didn't manage to find anything useful - if anyone can assist or point me in the right direction I'd be really grateful!

Cheers

Hi

Well the 1762 shouldn't tax your wiring skills... if you take the side cover off all it is is the EMT remote control panel (meter, up button, down button) and a lamp and a switch. It was designed, I thought, for the big steel plate rev unit (damn, senility strikes, I can't recall the number ) so I don't know how or if it connects to the gold foil model.

If you can find the remote info for that unit you should be home and dry.

Hi Geoff

Thanks for the info. I opened up the 1762 and it is exactly as you said. Hopefully someone here has the EMT remote info or pinouts and I can give it a try. I hope the 1762 will work with the 240 - they both came from RTE, so I'm assuming they were used together. Then again I don't know if RTE used EMT 140 plates too - the big steel ones.... heh

I believe I have the wiring for the EMT140 and remote. I have no clue if it's the same for the 240 or not though! Will check when I'm in the studio...

We'd find a copy very useful for servicing our 240 - thanks.

Question... is the remote you're speaking of the one that can control 2 echo plates? I have a couple of those remotes here, as well as two 140's that were given to me last year, and I desperately want to get them operational, but don't know the pinout configuration. Perhaps you can pass some knowledge "love" my direction!

Thanks!

**Also... on the remote cables... if they're similar to the 140 plates (I have no idea if they are or not), they use the same Teuschel connectors as I believe the old Neumann 67's... and boy, are they expensive!!!! When I priced them, there were in the $500-$600 range EACH!!!! Luckily, I had the remote cables... (as I wipe the sweat from my nervous brow!)

My remote just controls 1 plate - it's a Neve module, same size as a 1272. I think I can help you out with the 140 remote pinouts - I have a 140 manual with schematics which I just checked and it includes the remote connector diagrams. It's quite small , so if you want to email me I'll attach it to the reply.

I believe the 240 uses a Neumann M49 connector. I have to source one myself and I hope it's less than the $$ you're talking - yikes!

You're right... it is the 49's. And I have heard of folks changing out the connectors with the xlr stuff. I know that I could only find 2 or 3 places that had them AT ALL, and they were too pricey for me. Then the original owner of the plates said "here's the remote cables, connectors and all." I was thanking my lucky stars! heh

I'll pm you about the manuals... thank you!

EMT 240 infos

Hi
I have one of these and would like to take up Dr funks offer for the pdf manual. My up down buttons seem to make little difference to the decay which remains pretty long...is this because I don't have a remote and should be bridging some of the pins on the remote output? Any help much appreciated.

140/240 same remote?

Thanks, is the remote the same for the 140 and the 240? Does your 140 allow damper adjustments with the remote unplugged?

Ok, I've had a few more requests for this, so here's a link to the 240 manual (I'll leave it there for others unless I'm asked to take it down):

Bringing an old thread back from the grave! I lost my copy of the EMT 240 manual in a hard drive crash, and the copy I had uploaded is long gone too.

Could anyone who downloaded it please repost it? Would be much appreciated!

Cheers
Frank

EDIT: Found it! There's a copy at www.analogrules.com - I forgot I'd passed it on for archival purposes. Glad I did!

Hi Frank. I've gone through that site's various pages but hey, make it easy me, post a direct link to the 240 info if you can.

240 remote...

Essentially a 240 remote is the same as a 140... You may have to change the connector, depending on which version of the 140 remote you have, but they are pretty much the same. Look in the manual for the circuit. I'm looking for one as well!
