Kollsman Instrument 17960010010 Repeater Servo Altimeter - For Display Only


Product Description

Dataplate on top of units are intact and legible; glass on all units is intact; aluminum housing has scuff marks; Connector terminal seems to be intact; one unit has some sort of debris inside the readout area. Untested. Sold as is, for display only.

The Kollsman name is closely associated to the invention of various flight instruments & airplane-mounted barometric devices.  The small window in the display of altimeters is named the "Kollsman Window," after inventor Paul Kollsman (b. 1900 - d. 1982).  

Simple altimeters are the least sensitive, using static pressure to display altitude with a needle.
Sensitive altimeters use a stack of two or more capsules, and vibration-inhibitors to provide more accurate readings.
Servo-Assisted altimeters are the most accurate, using electronic-feedback to minutely change readouts as accurately as 1mb, ±30ft at sea level.

The Kollsman window on these units has a 1000's display, and a 100's display, with the needle on a 100-graduation circle.

These may have been removed from USAF aircraft, such as B-52 Stratofortress bombers. 

These instruments are each being sold separately.  

No international sales. No shipping outside continental United States.  For Display Only.
