Chicago Miniature

05/03/2017 4:15 PM

I am looking for a cross-reference listing for old CML indicators, specifically CML 070.

I know they are VCC now, but none of the regular suppliers I checked with (Newark, Mouser, Allied, etc.) are able to cross-reference or recommend a suitable replacement.

If VCC discontinued the part, then fine. I have a quote in at Eldema for a suitable replacement, but no response yet. The CML's are oem, so that's why I would prefer them. If Eldema can't come through I will likely have to retrofit.

Does anybody have a cross-reference?

Chicago Miniature Lamps a VCC company There is a slow-loading page here, but secure.

I think they have a lot of different lamps to check out.

They don't have a cross and/or a listing for the equivalent lamp.

The .25 semi auto is the Special on for tonight in Chicago.

With the numbers filed off, not much chance of a cross-reference on this Chicago miniature either.

Sorry I could not help much at all. How about subbing in another lamp with the generic base, same voltage, and similar watts, and then hone in on shape.

Waiting for a quote.

They had no photo or specs, so unsure yet.

As said previously. Determine the base type, voltage, and application, like indicator, stage lighting, vehicle, aircraft navigation lights....

If you have one that works power it up and measure the current then figure the watts.

Get a lamp catalog or go online to match the bulb shape....

Then post it all here.

Odds are someone will 'shed light' on the matter for you!
