Falcon Vision board for Contact 3AV needed!!! | 10 March, 2004

Does anyone have the Falcon vision board that comes in the Contact 3AV? It controls the cameras and monitor. I am pretty sure mine died because the monitor is all garbled. I think it is the same board that comes in all the 3 series models.....

Thanks in advance Josh

I believe the Falcon vision board that Contact Systems used in their equipment is no longer being made by the manufacturer. I would first call them (most reputable), next check the used equipment guys (be carfull), and lastly ebay (good luck). What ever you do get a price from Contact Systems, it might be closer then you think.

Check the cables first, they get damaged after a while by the turntable for the monitor, lots of bending. We had to replace our cables.

Also, have you checked the monitor? We had to replace ours.

Our 3AV is 8 years old.

So I finally got it running. It ended up being a combination of bad card and corrupt file in the \falcon directory. Luckily I had lots of help from Bob Tomaselli at Magellan Services. Does anyone know where I could find a schematic for these boards? No one seems to have one. Thanks

Seems crazy to me that Bob T has to fix Contact customers. Cant contacts service dept.answer these questions? Did you get your macnine from Contact? I though contact had a service dept. How come so many people are asking questions on this form to fix Contact machines? Did Contact go out of bussiness yet?

I did not buy this machine from Contact, therefore they will not support it...unless you buy the 2nd user support package I think its called. I think a lot of people ask questions about Contact because there are so many used machines out there.
