As far as I remember the 405 system did not use equalising pulses. It was argued that with a correctly designed frame sync circuit they are not required. From that I understand a more expensive frame sync circuit would not require them. The set makers wanting to keep costs down wanted the pulses in the system but they were overruled.

Again corrections gratefuly accepted if my memory is wrong.

Edit. I have found a Wikipeadia page which more or less states similar, hopefully Wikipedia has it correct, but treat with caution.

I think it’s high time to put the back on and forget all about it.

Has been an interesting wild goose chase though.

Equalising pulses were never used in the 405 line system as transmitted but afaik, the 525 and 625 had them from the outset. They are basically to ensure that the sync pulse transition is in the same direction at the trigger point for both fields which eases the design of the field TB. 

Cheers

The interesting thing will be to try the Stella on a different standards converter sometime.

I keep threatening to buy myself an Aurora, but I never seem have the spare cash when they are in stock.waa_gif

Anyway,  I may re-visit this pain in the  erm, sorry, “interesting fault”  in the course of time.

Does the Aurora allow the switching on/off of the pulses?

I still don’t have the spare cash but have bought one all the same, so the condition described in this thread will be re-visited soon.

I turned the equalisation pulses off on mine (I can’t remember if they are off by default) but I know I was playing about with it when I first got it and one set (Ferguson 45) didn’t like them. So I turned them off and that’s how it’s been ever since.
