465 & 465B Tunnel Diodes [ WAS: Tek Instruction Manual (aka "Bible"]

Artek Manuals <manuals@...>
 

Can we reset the base line on this thread ! So much of this is out of
context I cant tell what the base model the poster is working on
a 464? 465? 466? or 465B?. The subject line gives me no clue either???
Maybe even update the subject line on the thread or start a new thread

Change out what OP amp? in what circuit? I see no reference to op amp in
any of the quoted thread ?

I think if we wandered less and keep the subject line more meaningful
you might get more help ( my $.02 worth)

********************************************************************************
_David Hess Said: (I think??) "As far as I can tell though, the 465
always used tunnel diode triggering but I have yet to__
__see the compete early 465 schematics."

_David,et all: we have the early 465 manual with direct mention of all
serial numbers from B010100 through B175400 & Above ( that is pretty
close to complete for the "early versions" ) and the ALL have the tunnel
diodes in the trigger out. Ditto with the "newer" 465 manual for B250000
and above. Both the early and later manuals for the 465B also show
tunnel diodes in the A/B trigger ckts as well at least for serials
B010100 through B060000.

I think it is pretty safe to say that all 465/465B used tunnel diodes
in the A/B trigger ckt

One thing I have not been able to track down however is the variations

version with the early version using tunnel diode triggering and a
late version using integrated triggering. As far as I can tell
though, the 465 always used tunnel diode triggering but I have yet to
see the compete early 465 schematics.

My guess is that the 464 and 466 were updated around 1980 when the
465B was released to replace the 465 and this was when they replaced
tunnel diode triggering with integrated triggering:

1973 Early 465 Mixed Sweep Tunnel Diode Triggering
1974 Early 466 Mixed Sweep Tunnel Diode Triggering
1975 Early 464 Mixed Sweep Tunnel Diode Triggering

1980? Late 466 Mixed Sweep Integrated Triggering
1980? Late 464 Mixed Sweep Integrated Triggering
1980 465B Alternate Sweep Integrated Triggering

FWIW My 465B has tunnel diode triggering, I have had to replace three of
them since I've owned the scope .
FWIW2 At one time my B lost it's trace and the problem turned out to be
just a bad opamp in one of the voltage regulator circuits.

Re: Probe adjust on Tektronix 2213A

 

There is a good quick reference for Tektronix probes here:

http://www.barrytech.com/tektronix/probes/tekprobes.html

The P6122 should definitely work with your 2213A as it was recommended
for the 22xx series.

The P6108 should work as far as I know but it looks like it was
recommended for the LA501 or DD501. That should not matter.

I see on your first photograph that the compensation is not quite set
right. Did you adjust the compensation on both probes? I believe the
compensation adjustment for both is on the BNC end. It is a little
trimmer capacitor.

*@DavidW *Thanks, OK, so if the op amp isn't the first place you'd look,
what would be your gut instinct on a failure to produce a trace?

ps: glad to see this discussion produced another advancement in the
understanding of the 465B! At least something good has become of it!

Re: Probe adjust on Tektronix 2213A

 

For the P6108 probe:

There is an adjustment on the bottom of the compensation box (the part with the BNC connector that connects to the scope). You connect the probe to the calibration source on the front of the scope and adjust that capacitor for a nice square corner waveform. Most likely you should use a non-metallic tuning tool but maybe a small screwdriver will work with this simple probe.

465B Tunnel Diode Triggering

Bert Haskins
I made a mistake somewhere but maybe there is a bigger mystery.

The commonly available scan of the 465B service manual marked First
Printing April 1979 is missing schematic 6 which shows the A and B
trigger and I remember someone telling me that the 465B has integrated
triggering which would fit with the 468 so I just went with it.

But I see that I also have two different scans of schematic 6 which
both show tunnel diode triggering; one is marked Revision A September
1979 and the other is marked Serial Number B060000 and up.

So now my question is was the 465B ever upgraded to integrated
triggering? Maybe a later service manual shows this.

Thanks for bringing this to my attention Bert.

Hehe, while updating my notes I see now that I *do* have the 465B
marked as using tunnel diode triggering but it is difficult to see. So
I was just going by memory and got it wrong and there is no mystery
here unless a later version of the 465B had integrated triggering.


Re: Probe adjust on Tektronix 2213A

Colin Herbert
 

The 2213A has an input of 1M/20pF. It does happen that the compensation
adjustment of any given probe is not within what the scope expects. One of
your probes is fine, with sharp corners, but the other is less so. Have you
found and adjusted the compensation of either? There should be a visible
screw-head in the box on the end of the probe-lead which has the BNC
connector to connect to the scope input, provided these are real Tek probes.

Colin.

Re: 400-series knob replacement or repair

 

Isn't it the same knob as on a 465B?

On 28 Mar 2017 15:40:03 +0000, you wrote:

Hi,
I've made this query wide-ranging, but it should become obvious why. I have a 468 DSO which I am trying to calibrate. It is a bit of a nuisance that the Volts/Div knob on Channel 2 has some markings which are obliterated. This 'scope has rather different markings from other Volts/Div knobs in the 400-series, so I can't use one from a parts mule 466 (or any other). My question, then, is does anyone have one of these knobs with its markings intact that they could sell me, or can anyone offer any advice as to how to restore the markings?

Re: Tek Instruction Manual (aka "Bible")

David Berlind
 

Thanks Colin.... I plead guilty your honor. I know that I could download
those manuals and sift through them but asked the question to the forum on
the off chance that someone happened to know the answer off the top of
their heads (and of course, you guys did NOT disappoint.. so thank you). I
double checked the scope that's for sale and clearly, it's a 465 as other
images on the net for the 465B show the front panel clearly marked as 465B
(and the one I'm looking at for parts lacks the "B").

*@DavidW,* thanks for your input too. One question... is there a serial #
range on the early vs. late model 466s? Just trying to figure out which one
of those I might have. Because if there's only one 465 and the age is
aligned with the early 466s, then I'm assuming that I might be able to more
easily "swing" the other direction too (bearing in mind that when I assume,
I become the first 3 letters of the word). Though I suspect a fan
replacement would be less surgery than fixing a absent trace (again, me
assuming).

One last question... in another thread about my 466, I talked about how my
fan growls for a while on startup before it eventually quiets down (to
which the consensus was that the fan is on its way out). I asked the
seller if his fan made any unusual noises on startup and he said it whines
for a bit and then its quiet. Does anyone have any thoughts on a whiny fan
at startup? Is that better or worse than a growly fan?

thanks all!

Hi,

I have Service Manuals for 465, 465B and 466 scopes. The 465 and 466 would
appear to have pretty much the same fan motor and circuit. The circuit
number for the fan motor is B1690 in both cases, with Tek part number
147-0035-00. They are made by Siemens and the manufacturers number is
1AD3001-OA. This would suggest strongly that they can be swapped, but others
might know more certain from experience. However, the 465B is a rather
different thing; the fan motor isn't the same as the 465 and 466. I hope
this helps.

Colin.

PS. I think there may be an error on the fan motor circuit for the 466; it
shows a +5V on connector 9 of the motor, where the 465 circuit shows this as
+15V.

Hey all, sorry to revive this thread, but quick follow up question
regarding similar models...

Are the 465 and 466 close enough in terms of parts that I might be able to
part a 465 (particularly the fan motor) to fix the 466? Or the other way
around?

The owner of the 465 says <https://nh.craigslist.org/ele/6062570749.html>
the following,

"and now it appears that the CRT isn't producing a trace. The illumination
function works on the display, but no trace."

Thanks!

Re: Tek Instruction Manual (aka "Bible")

 

You should check the parts lists just to be sure however the 464 and
466 are part of the 465 group.

One thing I have not been able to track down however is the variations
of the 465 if there were any. The 464 and 466 have an early and late
version with the early version using tunnel diode triggering and a
late version using integrated triggering. As far as I can tell
though, the 465 always used tunnel diode triggering but I have yet to
see the compete early 465 schematics.

My guess is that the 464 and 466 were updated around 1980 when the
465B was released to replace the 465 and this was when they replaced
tunnel diode triggering with integrated triggering:

1973 Early 465 Mixed Sweep Tunnel Diode Triggering
1974 Early 466 Mixed Sweep Tunnel Diode Triggering
1975 Early 464 Mixed Sweep Tunnel Diode Triggering

1980? Late 466 Mixed Sweep Integrated Triggering
1980? Late 464 Mixed Sweep Integrated Triggering
1980 465B Alternate Sweep Integrated Triggering

Dennis,

On this page:

Item VH924 is an interesting item with a B7G plug and a Noval socket.
Reasonable price, too.

Colin.

Hi Colin,
9-pin socket savers are available from every tube site I have checked. They
are even available direct from the manufacturers via Alibaba. The ones that
are impossible to find are the 7-pin. Those seem to be obsolete. No one is
making them. A few places have old stock at outrageous prices.

Hi Dave,
Thank you for your offer but for the moment I think I have a better
solution. The pins coming out of a tube base are about 1/4" (6.8mm). If I
try to push a longer pin into a tube socket it bottoms out at about 0.28"
(7.25mm). So I'm concerned that the 12mm pin length you have will cause
problems.

I have found a workable solution. Vector still makes pins that are the right
diameter and approximately the right length. They are meant to be pressed
into place in a PC Board through hole and then soldered to the pad
surrounding the hole. Since the vacuum tube curve tracer I was making will
ultimately be built on a printed circuit board I can work out a way to use
the Vector pins I found.

Given the image shows a part that's used, I assume RFE means"Removed From Equipment".

Thanks,

Leeds lists them but not sure if they're stocked.

If you follow the "+" link beside this entry at
http://www.leedsradio.com/parts-sockets.html

7 pin minature plug - fits sockets for 1L6, 6AU6 etc
good for making tube adapters, test jigs (rfe)

It shows the following image:

http://www.leedsradio.com/images-sockets/plug-7pin.JPG

It doesn't show a price so I assume they're out of stock. Not sure what
"(rfe)" means but it shows by several items that do have prices so I don't
think its an indication of out of stock.

Thanks,
Barry - N4BUQ
