Original NASA Apollo Command Module Spacecraft Artifact
* Vintage NASA Apollo Command Module Spacecraft Flight Hardware, Astronaut Main Control Panel, Caution and Warning System Power Supply Status Indicator Light*
This Apollo Command Module artifact is part of the CM spacecraft's main control panel's 'Caution and Warning System' section, described below. This system was located at the front, top, and center of the CM spacecraft's main control display panel.These display light units were designed to function as a status indicator for the Command Module astronauts to reference when any of the spacecraft's systems were in a cautionary or warning state, such as in the dire events that took place during the Apollo 12 and Apollo 13 missions.
This 'C/W' Caution & Warning System status light unit was specifically designed to indicate when the power supply voltage to the caution and warning system is out of range.
Artifact Display Face Nomenclature: C/W (Caution & Warning).
Approximate dimensions: 2 inches x 1.5 inches x 0.75 inch.
The last twelve NASA images are for reference only, including diagrams and a photo showing the Command Module's Caution & Warning System on the spacecraft's main control panel.Everything included in this sale is shown in the first ten listing photos.
This artifact originally belonged to the William E. Scripps II space hardware collection.
Command Module Spacecraft Caution and Warning System:Critical conditions of most spacecraft systems are monitored by a caution and warning system. A malfunction or out-of-tolerance condition results in illumination of a status light that identifies the abnormality. It also activates the master alarm circuit, which illuminates two master alarm lights on the main display console and one in the lower equipment bay and sends an alarm tone to the astronauts' headsets. The master alarm Iights and tone continue until a crewman resets the master alarm circuit. This can be done before the crewmen deal with the problem indicated. The caution and warning system also contains equipment to sense its own malfunctions.
Apollo Command Module Spacecraft Main Control Panel:Dominating the forward section of the cabin was the crescent-shaped main display panel measuring nearly 7 feet (2.1 m) wide and 3 feet (0.91 m) tall. It was arranged into three panels, each emphasizing the duties of each crew member. The mission commander's panel (left side) included the velocity, attitude, and altitude indicators, the primary flight controls, and the main FDAI (Flight Director Attitude Indicator).
The CM pilot served as navigator, so his control panel (center) included the Guidance and Navigation computer controls, the caution and warning indicator panel, the event timer, the Service Propulsion System and RCS controls, and the environmental control system controls.
The LM pilot served as systems engineer, so his control panel (right-hand side) included the fuel cell gauges and controls, the electrical and battery controls, and the communications controls.
Flanking the sides of the main panel were sets of smaller control panels. On the left side were a circuit breaker panel, audio controls, and the SCS power controls. On the right were additional circuit breakers and a redundant audio control panel, along with the environmental control switches. In total, the command module panels included 24 instruments, 566 switches, 40 event indicators, and 71 lights. - Source: NASA.govA rare example ofApollo flight hardware to display in your Command Module spacecraft collection!We require that all potential buyers read our 'FAQ and Terms of Sale' section, at the bottom of each listing, prior to purchase, offer or offer placement and inquiries.FAQ & Terms of Sale:* Artifact Inquiries: Please submit all questions regarding listed artifacts, prior to purchase or offer placement, and allow at least 24 hours for a response.
