Anyone have info on Schaller Active Humbuckers?

I really like the Schaller pickups I have in an old Heritage 535. Today, I was at a flea market and bought a BC Rich from 1987 with a pair of Schaller active humbuckers. The guitar isn't really playable, but I pulled the pickups out. There are two wires - a thin one for the battery and a thick one.

Does anyone know anything about these or have any wiring info? Aside from a couple of Fenders with the preamp and passive pickups, I don't have any guitars with active pickups. I figure it would be cool to stick these in something just for variety.
