    Hello, friends. Could you help me identify these devices. They present in The Big Bang Theory TV show. I was able to find photos, but have no clue what they are for. Please tell me the purpose of the device. If you could tell me exact name and model It would be awesome. Sorry for the small size of some pictures, but it is the best I could find.

    5. Temperature, and sometimes Humidity chart recorder
    16. Might be a Graphic Equalizer of some sort.

    It would help if we could see the faceplates of some of these devices (not to mention it identification plates).
    If I were you, and you don't get all the answers here, you might try surfing the eBay heading for Industrial, Business stuff for sale, you may find similar models for sale with information on them there.

    For your information, sometimes people affiliated with the props in the show will be more than happy to identify their wares for viewers, not to mention fan clubs for the Big Bang Theory show. You might surf some of those and see what you can find.

    1 and 2 -- maybe power supplies

    3 --- not sure

    4 --- a mock up of a Star Trek (NG) Tricorder

    5 --- yes, may be a temp or humidity chart recorder --- I have personally seen barometers in this style at the met office in years gone by

    6 -- Ham radio transceiver with main VFO know missing. Not sure if it is Yaesu or Icom brand .... looks more Icom

    7 -- don't know

    8 -- looks like a inline tap for a piped liquid or gas system

    9 -- looks like a synchronous motor and drive

    10 -- cant tell pic too unclear

    11 -- some electronics mock-up for display ... the connections on the tube on the right are sticking up in the air not connected

    12 -- doesnt look like a Dictograph .... looks more like ham radio antenna rotator controller, seen lots of them

    13 -- could just be a telephone

    14 -- pic too small to id object

    15 -- pic too small to id object

    16 -- audio graphics equaliser --- 9 or 10 band, 2 channel

    Hi.
    Yeah, the fan sites were the first place I checked and I found many props there. Also found some by myself using prints on displays and brand names. But for these above I couldnt find anything. For 12 I misspelled. Obviously it is not Dictogaph

    It's said that #2 is pressure gauge. But all my attempts to find something similar failed. All search results show me this kind of pressure gauges. Maybe you could advise me what request to use?

    This is what Google gives me

    you used that term for 3 or 4 devices ... at the time I originally answered I was starting to wonder what your obsession with dictographs was ;)

    the description for the top one may be correct .... without see the writing on it, who knows ??

    the bottom is likely to be correct from that description, more commonly known as a Geiger counter

    Hi. yes, I found Geiger Counter before. This is Model AN/PDR-39A Survey Meter (ca. 1955). I found a better photo and was able to read the print on it. But this pressure gauge doesn't have any prints and it is impossible to read what is on the display

    Hi again. Found a better photo of #10. You can read what is on display. What is it?
