The GCF page about this carillon has a description and two photos, but the keyboard ranges do not match the number of bells.  The photo of bells can be opened for a larger version.

A GCF page about the schedule at three carillons has a small photo of the Capelle bells.

The ARPAC Website presents much more detail than we can here, though it is all in French.

Where this work lies in the sequence of output of the Paccard bellfoundry, in this region and in the world.
