Elektrit Automatic Z


Rare polish radio – produced only in 1939 with additional automatic motorised tunning to 12 programmed positions and with 4 step choice of selectivity granting extention of  acoustic frequencies range depending on choosen selectivity. Serviced by author since 1965 today is in it’s normal reception condition according to data. Tube EAB1 due to unproper operation replaced with EABC 80. EM 1 due to weak picture replaced with EM 4. Some faulty capacitors and resistors replaced with same but not original  types.




 Power : 3 watts max

 Ranges : LW – 700m – 2000 m

 MW – 200m – 580 m

 SW – 13m – 50 m

 Tubes: AZ1, EK3, EF9, EAB1, EF6, EL3, EM 1

 Speaker: One widerange 19 cm diameter

 Tunning indicator: steel linkage with bronze pointer

 Tunning indicator: electron tube

 Selctivity: 14 kHz, 11 kHz, 9 kHz, 7 kHz.

 Sensitivity: according do found in internet information 5uV

 Inputs: El. Gramophone

 Outputs: Auxilirary speaker with transformer.

 Voltages: 100Vac – 240 Vac

 Tone controll – Linear high cut and selector to „Speech” and „Music” changing feedback from speaker coil to preamplifier

Shop price at time of sell – 780 Polish złotych – about 7 monthly weges


Actually due to lack of conditions for areal radio operates only with „grounding” antenna. With this conditins in the evening receives  middle waves strong european stations like Praha, Budapest, Bucarest, Sweden. On long waves only Warsaw i Progrmm is heard. In short waves it is world range reception.

 Presented below schematic diagramm is not a producer document but a result of record to „as seen” – not 100% may be according to factory diagram but author has no knowledge about this differences. His intention was to regain original circuitry and to present it.

 Update 13 march 2016 – schematic diagram replaced with newer version – few faults  rectified in input circuitry, visual arrangement improved and changed graphic format to make it more readable

Update 28 October 2016 schematic diagram replaced with newer version – another few faults  rectified in input circuitry, visual arrangement improved

Front view – visible is octal type tube typoe EABC80 modified to meet original EAB1 socket. Existing  original  EAB1 although still working  was malfunctioning

Electrit Automatic 8

Programmed device. Each hand positioned slider fixed fo round rail   serves one of 12 selected by owner positions of scale

Electrit Automatic 9

Rear wiev -author managed to obtain  all original type tubes – in 1945 radio was already fixed with two newer and  not original type tubes – ECH4N instead of EK3 qand EBL21 instead of EL3. There were also some changes made  to original circuitry concept made by unknown workshop(s?). After deep search author managed to  bring back the original idea

Electrit Automatic 7

Automatic device – panel of programmed push buttons. Visible electromagnet provides selfsupport to mechanical bar blocking the button in down position untill the desired position is met. With this moment motor stops, motor shaft moves axialy back to nonactive position by contact spring  force, electromagnet coil voltage is off, bar is up and button is returned to up position.

Rear view of speaker. Most radios in this years had speakers with electromagnet. One of reasons was problem to obtain powerfull magnet field from  solid magnets. Presented magnet was imported to Poland from England. Also the speaker diaphragm was imported from England.
