Has anyone seen a German 50B or "Y" simulator fuze?

I am trying to find what the "firing" level of movement was for this fuze (angle of tilt, degrees of movement, etc)
Anyone have an old manual for this fuze?
Hi E-Tech.

Ive no manuals but ive seen the old BD boys talking on telly and they mention just a small amount of movement on the bomb would make the mercury tilt switch go off.
There is a documented test case of where you see the Lab guys tapping on a bombcase with a pencil and a fuze they have rigged to a lightbulb has picked up the vibration!
Hope ive helped a little?


I think I rd Fuzeman mention a video that has the pencil tapping footage in it- where could I find that video?
