On behalf of the BDO we send the manual "Electrical engineering in organ building".
This manual should give the organ builder the necessary orientation to realize his ideas. It should enable experts and organists to assess risks realistically and to find practicable approaches for the remediation of problem cases.
On a total of 77 pages, this manual illustrates typical problem sources and offers comprehensible and practicable solutions. Various circuit diagrams and the standards relevant to organ building complete this practical guide in order to be technically and legally on the safe side in the future.
As another very helpful tool for daily use, we offer the calculating disc designed by Thomas Kroll for dimensioning conductor cross-sections in organ building for 14 and 24 volts. This allows you to quickly and easily read the conductor cross-sections required in relation to current strength and conductor length.
The manual is available for 40 Euro incl. VAT plus shipping costs.
The manual is available for 20 Euro incl. VAT plus shipping costs, for members of the Bund-Deutscher-Orgelbaumeister e.V. (Association of German Organbuilders)
The calculating disc is also available for a nominal charge of 15 Euro incl. VAT plus shipping costs.
