Re: Fabricating "blank" TM500 Modules

If you want GPIB control, then you need TM5000.

If you want some of the functions that aren't available in the TM500 series, then you need TM5000.

If you don't need either, the go for TM500.

Perhaps a mixture of both?

There is usually no swap meet/eBay premium for TM5003 and 5006 mainframes over the TM500 equivalents. They are an additional 1RU high, so if rack space is a consideration, go with the TM506. GPIB is nice, but the old 4041 controllers use a tape drive and no one seems to have a good tape.
