SPACE / TIME CONTROL

STYLUS HEATER NOTE

DUE TO THE POTENTIAL FOR USER ERROR WE ARE NO LONGER INCLUDING A STYLUS HEATING CIRCUIT IN OUR DISK MASTERING SYSTEMS.

NITROCELLULOSE LACQUER DISKS CUT USING A HEATED STYLUS PRESENT RISK OF FIRE WHICH MAY CAUSE CATASTROPHIC SYSTEM FAILURE, INJURY & DEATH.

WE HAVE CHANGED OUR SPACE / TIME CONTROL UNIT TO INCLUDE ONLY AN INPUT, SWITCH AND OUTPUT TO CONNECT WITH A (USER SUPPLIED) DC PSU TO BE USED FOR STYLUS HEATING.

DC POWER INPUT (REAR OF THE STC) IS WIRED TO A SWITCH WHICH THEN FEEDS THE OUTPUT TO THE SUSPENSION BOX, THEN TO THE STYLUS HEATER TERMINALS.

THE SWITCH ALSO TURNS THE VACUUM ON/ OFF (VACUUM CHIP PICKUP IS ESSENTIAL WHEN USING A HEATED STYLUS).

CABLING TO THE SUSPENSION BOX ETC IS INCLUDED.

WE WILL CONSULT WITH CLIENTS ON SETUP AND USE OF HEATED STYLI.

THIS CHANGE HAS BEEN MADE IN ORDER TO PROTECT CLIENTS PROPERTY, PERSONAL SAFETY & SILLITOE AUDIO TECHNOLOGY (IN ITS ABILITY TO CONTINUE WITH NORMAL OPERATIONS, E,G. SUPPORTING CLIENTS) FROM LEGAL ACTION IN CASES OF USER ERROR WHILE OPERATING THE SYSTEM WITH HEATED STYLUS.
