Re: Looking for 067-0625-00 Peak-to-Peak Detector Photos

Hello Jared

I’m sorry but I can’t remember all of the details from when I took the cavity apart – should have taken more photos.  I’ve just taken the covers off and had another look at the PCB, but don’t really want to take the cavity apart again as I think it was awkward to reassemble properly.  The 100 ohm resistors are soldered to C1 and C2 (fixed to the cavity wall) inside the cavity.  I don’t think the 50 ohm resistor has any capacitor connection inside the cavity, although it is of course connected to c3 and c4 on the PCB.

Do you remember how the signal passed through from the cavity to the PCB?

It appears there is a feed-through capacitor for each diode maybe? Do you remember if the 50ohm resistor had this too or if it was just passing through a simple hole?

As far as I can remember it was fairly simple – as per the third photo in

the album (the one with the red tape). The 50ohm resistor is soldered directly

to the centre pin of the GR-874 and the two diodes to the ground. Despite

the warnings in the manual about disturbing this RF cavity, my peak detector

seemed to test ok after the repair. I had no choice anyway as the 50 ohm

resistor was broken in half. I was just careful to select the new resistor

to measure as close as possible to the correct value.
