Re: debugging TM500 modules


Hi Bob:
Your excellent discovery that the TM502 power supply can be totally removed from the mainframe would haved save a lot of time years ago if I had only known about it.
Many years ago I made a TM500 plugin test fixture by cutting off the front 80% of a TM501 unit. This required a metal chop saw and a lot of filing and other work to remove the rough edges.

My solution is a kluge compared to yours. I'm embarrassed as I recall how much work it took to modify the TM501 when I see how simple your solution is.
Yours solution also comes in handy when you need to test double wide plugins.
Thanks for thinking outside the box.
