Description

    NASA Apollo Command/Service Module Launch Vehicle Engines Event Annunciator Component. A 2.75" x 3.25" x 4" (overall) with ten lights on the front panel (1-8, L/V Rate, L/V Guide) and two multi-pin electrical connectors on the back. Manufactured by Grimes with a part number of "ME 434-0022", contract number "NAS9-150", and manufacturing date of January 1968. Original paper label and storage bag included. We found the following information about this important panel indicator in a NASA Technical Note on Crew Station Integration: "A special-purpose bank of annunciator lights was used on the CM to display the status of the launch vehicle during boost. Eight lights, grouped within a 5.72- by 8.26-centimeter (2. 25 by 3. 25 inch) area adjacent to the commander's flight instruments, provided the fundamental booster status information required by the crewmembers during launch . By means of this display, the crewmembers could determine whether or not each booster engine was developing enough thrust, whether or not the booster guidance was functioning properly, and whether or not the staging sequence was proper." Apparently never used, like new.
