GL. ERZ400 b (power generator)
 
This was a power generator used for the 5 W.S., 10 W. S., 20 W. S., and 30 W. S. transmitters (Metsu). The power generated consisted of 400 Watts by12 to 16 Volts. These generators were a more efficient way of supplying this equipment with electricity when the motors of their vehicles were not running. Otherwise vehicular battery power had to be used which drained these batteries quickly. This example came in its original wooden crate (seen below) with a spare motor unit.
