Environmental Control System (ECS): see, also, LM News Reference Chapter 6 (18 Mb)

  (1) Water Management / LCG Temperature Controls (2.1 Mb)

  (2) Oxygen Control Module, Suit Gas Diverter, Suit Isolation (right).  LMP oxygen hoses: O2 flow from ECS (blue connector), O2 return flow to the ECS (red connector).  This is the pair closest to Panel 14 on the LMP's side of the cabin.  The more complex blue fitting nearer the camera is the MP's water hose, with channels for flow in each direction.  On the thin wall section facing the camera and just to the left of the Oxygen Control Module, the CDR's water hose is at the top below the "caution" label.  The red oxygen coupling is visible below it to the right, while the blue oxygen fitting is hidden under the water hose.  (2.1 Mb)

  (3) Suit Circuit Module:  Suit Circuit Relief, Cabin Gas Return, LiOH cannisters (2.4 Mb)

  (4) Primary and Secondary Lithium Hydroxide Canisters (2.4 Mb)

  (5) Plumbing aft of the ECS (2.0 Mb)

  (6) Water Dispenser (2.1 Mb)


  (1) Panel 1 (CDR, left), Panel 2 (LMP, right), Panel 3, Apollo Guidance Computer (AGC) Display and Keyboard (DSKY), CDR's Attitude Control (left), LMP's  Thrust/Translation Controller Assembly (TTCA) (right) (2.2 Mb)

  (2) Panel 1 (left) and the lefthand side of Panel 2 and Panel 3; light shield on the window side of Panel 1 (2.1 Mb)

  (3) Panel 2 (right) and the righthand side of Panel 1 and Panel 3; light shield on the window side of Panel 2 (2.1 Mb)

  (4) DSKY.  Note the detailed information available on the fold-down pallet at the bottom of the image. (2.1 Mb)

  (5) Alignment Optical Telescope (AOT); Mani Panel and Cabin Floodlights in ceiling recesses on the left and right of the AOT (2.0 Mb)

  (6) Forward Hatch Pressure Relief Valve (1.7 Mb)

CDR Instrument Panels: 
see, also, LM News Reference Chapter 7  (3.4 Mb)

  (3) CDR Thrust/Translation Controller Assembly (TTCA) (1.9 Mb)

  (4) CDR Start/Stop button, hand grip (2.0 Mb)

  (5) Panel 5, Engine Start/Stop and X-translation push buttons, mission timer/lighting controls (1.9 Mb)

  (6) Panel 8 forward section, Audio, COAS switch (2.0 Mb)

  (7) Panel 8 aft end, oblique view from inboard, Descent Propulsion Vent switches, Heater Controls, Explosive Device controls (1.9 Mb)

  (8) ORDEAL (Orbital Rate Display - Earth and Lunar) (1.9 Mb)

  (9) Crewman Optical Alignment Sight (COAS) mounted above CDR window (2.0 Mb)

  (5) Panel 12, aft section, Communications Antennas (2.0 Mb)

  (6) Panel 14 aft section, Descent Power, Ascent Power, Comm (2.0 Mb)
  (7) Panel 6, Abort Guidance System, LMP TTCA, LMP's Stop pushbutton (yellow and black stripes), Attitude Control (2.0 Mb)

  (8) 16-mm Data Acquisition Camera (DAC) and battery, mounted over the LMP's window (1.9 Mb)


  (1) Utility Light Plug receptacles and swtiches.  Yellow handgrip in a recess.  The LEC pulley was hooked onto the handgrip during LEC operations. (2.0 Mb)
