Re: Mounting and dismounting curve tracer 177 fixture


 

Hi Gary,

Oh boy, I once spend hours trying to get the 177 out of my first 577.
Turn the 577 over. There are two screws near the front of the 577 bottom panel that screw in to the 177 to hold it in place. I suspect they are there to prevent the 177 from being easily stolen. The 177 will not budge until you remove them.
Then you can pull it out by the two ground lugs on either side of the front of the 177. At first it may seem stuck but that is because the connector contacts of the 577 holds the PC Board of the 177 pretty tight.

Does anyone know how to mount and dismount the 177 test fixture into the 577 curve tracer? Is there a locking mechanism?

Gary
