Re: TM500 / 5000 Extenders
Good Day,toggle quoted messageShow quoted text
The TM500/5000 interface connectors are *incompatible* with the 5000-series o'scopes.
It's not only a matter of mechanical fit - as Tektronix has wisely prevented incorrect insertions by design - the aforementioned notches.
Pins A1 to A13 and B1 to B13 are completely incompatible - the mentioned +200 VDC supply present at pin A1 on the 5000-series o'scopes is just one example of many incompatibilities.
You have been warned...

I have no idea but I suspect they aren't compatible. If it helps, I uploaded a drawing showing the pinouts for the TM500/5000. The file is Tek500_5000_Pinouts.png.
