There are no photos in that particular thread, but you'll find photos in other topics of the forum (check those covering MKB Trondenes and the firecontrol-exibition at Oscarsborg). I have several photos myself, but I'm not sure if they are useful.

It's the same links as I posted above.
Many of those links are dead though, as I have removed the files, but feel free to ask for a copy if needed.

Here some pictures of LBG of Batterie Rozenburg.
It is now in the collection of the Nederlands Militair Museum in Soesterberg, i believe not on show but stocked away.
The pictures come from the old Kustverdedigingsmuseum Hoek van Holland.

Interesting photos. Looks a little different to the one I know. According to the Serial number (17/37) this should be a C/39 adapted unit. Maybe some components are removed or, this late version has another way of incorporating the 110V Selsyn Azimuth sender unit.

Janef, How does the 110V Selsyn Azimut sender unit look like?

C36 Selsyn.jpg
The Azimuth Selsyn Transmitter is the box on top of the instrument. This it the actual Instrument at 28 cm Batterie Örlandet, now at display in Harstad.
The serial number of this one is 21/41.

It does not look like the one of Rozenburg had that.

If the distance from the Zielsäule to the guns were less than 400 meters, there was actually no need for this special transmitter. The azimuth data could then be submitted through the normal Epa-Seipa Anlage.
