Pye Mk4 CCU (camera control unit) front view

The Pye Mk4 CCU (camera control unit) with the operational controls on the front panel. It has a built in waveform monitor and a small meter to measure voltages and temperature.


The built in waveform monitor was an idea carried forward from earlier Pye cameras. It was not used in the next generation of Pye cameras.

This Pye CCU type 842329, is serial number 34 and is awaiting restoration. I have dated it to late 1959. At the bottom a handle has been broken off and the stubs of the two fixing screws can be seen.
