Fs: AM503s w probes

 

Folks,

Thought I would post here before eBay

I have several AM503 current probe amps with probes. I have some with 2amp probes and others with the larger, gun style probe.

I don’t want to split the probes from the amps.

They are AM503 without display, not 503A.

$100 for a probe and an amp plus shipping (US only please). Will be more on eBay.

Thanks for the bandwidth.

Bob


Re: 7854 fixed, now for some newb questions

Hi Everyone,

Posted by: Chuck Harris <cfharris@...>

Do not consider your 7104 to be a general purpose scope!
It has an MCP (Micro Channel Plate) CRT, which has a very
short life compared to any other CRT...
The 7104's warranty would be voided if you ever used it
? for any of the digital plugins, such as the 7L5.

Of course, this is why I opted for the 7854 and 7104 together combo, 7104
will generally see very little use, next to the 7854 which will serve
general purpose. Thanks for all the advice, I'll try to keep that MCP
healthy.

As far as I know, all 7854 keyboard units have sticky switches. It is a
simple clearance issue. Tektronix made the holes in the aluminum front
panel too close tolerance to the plastic buttons. Further, the buttons
are tapered so that they are narrow at the front, and wide behind the
panel... Only, the holes in the panel are punched square.. not tapered.

If you file the squareness into a taper by relieving the hole on the back
of the aluminum panel, you can improve the situation without making a
noticeable change to the panel. It must be disassembled, which isn't
hard at all.
Hmm, I fixed 3 keys on my 7854 that were very "sticky" but the culprit was
different, it had nothing to do with the front panel holes. It did however
appear to be a clearance/tolerance issue, but inside the key switch itself.
I'll make a new post where I'll document the repair procedure I used, with
photos.

Yes, the 7854 will be great taking noise measurements because of its
averaging capability. You may find the 7L5 Option 25, which has the built
in Tracking Generator attachment, would be more useful than the basic 7L5.

I'm still empty handed in my quest to get the 7L5, even the basic model,
let alone the scarce Option 25. Unfortunately I live far from major
hamfests so eBay or surprises in local ads are my prime options. Recently a
group member here offered his 7L13 and 7L5 for sale, both of which I'd be
interested in, but he never responded to my query. Sure hope my luck
changes soon.

Nenad, I'd bet that the bad line filter is a Schaffner brand
Exactly. And the whole power supply is Made in Netherlands. I've studied
the topic of these paper based RIFA cap failures, nothing strange about it,
also seen other brands fail in a similar way. One year ago I bought cheaply
a decent condition Schaub-Lorenz Weltspiegel 543 vintage TV (from 1953),
and went to restore it fully. CRT was in excellent condition and it came to
life nicely, but the picture was awful - unstable sync, vertical
amplitude/linearity in whack, unstable AGC... you name it. All foil caps in
this TV were paper based, so I replaced them all. And that was the end of
all problems, not even a single tube needed replacement.

There is a very slick USB to GPIB Arduino adapter that you can build.
This can also be expanded to wired or wireless Ethernet.
Darn near free if you don't count your labor and to top this off, there
are nice cases available.
Thanks for this hint, I'll try out this adapter as soon as I find time.
AFAICS the 24pin IEEE 488 connector is not so easy to find, I'll have to
order it from somewhere far far away...

Best regards,

Nope. Modern SMD caps are quite reliable and you are not going to bake them
in a reflow oven. Just pick good brand lonf life 105 Celsius caps of a
suitable size.

Sometimes it is better to use tantalums where appropriate. Among those cases
are Tek 492BP/494AP instruments that I recently rebuilt -- they have series
current limiting resistors everywhere so all decoupling capacitors on all
boards are adequately protected and it is OK to use tantalums there. Just
pick ones with rated voltage at least 30% higher than what they are
subjected to and they will last forever.

Hey Joseph,

my take on this is that it looks like you've caught "the bug". A 465, a
2465, a Hantek and now a TDS540A - it's a slippery slope, and can be very
hard to stop once your scope acquisition syndrome gains momentum (don't ask
me how I know ;).

As for your eBay episode, I'd say this is an application for Hanlon's razor

Occams'. I don't think there's any harm in alerting one another to
troublesome eBay sellers, however, even with the occasional false positive.
See e.g. the recently revived discussion of the seller who "upgrades"
2445Xs to 2465Xs, modulo actual bandwidth and transient response :/.

You can see the data sheet for the channel switch die here <
http://w140.com/tek_made_sm.pdf>, it's "named" 203-0211-90 and appears on
page 6-29 (or 271). It seems pretty clear that this is behaving as
intended, and that the #5 input is designed for a much lower bandwidth
signal than #1/2 and #3/4.
I'm guessing the original intent would have been for the readout signal to
be in a quiescent state when not displayed, or maybe it was simply less
expensive to do the low-bandwidth switching externally to the hybrid.


Re: A 2465 teaser...

Chuck Harris
 

Hi Mac,

Your description looks to be ok. But what is wrong with the description
in the manual? It is available for our use, and seems pretty clear to me.

My shame is I should have read it earlier as it contained lots of clues
that would have gotten me off of the bad power boondoggle.

2 or 3 years ago, I did read the description, and concluded that U475 or
U485 was likely bad. I replaced U475, but hesitated to change U485 when
replacing U475 had no effect. I don't like replacing parts shotgun style,
much preferring learning over efficiency. Shotgunning when done rationally
is very fast, but you never really learn what the failure was, just the
area where the failure occurred.

I think the difference in the way I approach repairs is because I am an
electrical engineer, not a technician. The failures a technician fixes
are circuits that once worked. Replace the broken part, and operation
will be restored. The failures an engineer fixes may never have worked
correctly. You have to replace the broken idea to fix an engineering
failure.

I don't believe the complexity in feeding CH5 is a mistake, but rather
an issue of partitioning... I believe the channel switch hybrid works
exactly the way it was supposed to work.

Partitioning was the job of the 2465 system engineer.

What I think they did is reason that the display needed to be updated
often, without fail, or it would flicker, or wink out. You can tolerate
a little of that in a trace, but in the display it would look ridiculously
broken. The display has to be stable. Display has to be priority 1.

So, what they did is make a 4 channel MUX for CH1-4, and give it individual
selection lines that mostly mirrored the state of the channel selection
buttons on the front panel.

CH1 and CH2 were special in that tradition required there be a function
where the MUX output is CH1 + CH2... the "ADD" function. That means there
is an adder gate before the CH1/CH2 MUX. I think the designer simply made
that adder gate a 3 input adder that added CH1+CH2+CH5, and presented
the sum to the channel switch MUX.

For this to work, the way you deselect an input is to change it to a
zero, or ground (Ch1 + CH2 + 0= no display...). The VS1 - VS4 selection
lines automatically do that for CH1 - CH4 input, but CH5 has no such
selection line, so the user of the Channel Switch is required to do it
himself.

Earlier I said it was a partitioning problem. I believe the mistake
that happened was the Channel Switch hybrid designer, and the Display
hybrid designer each thought the other was responsible for grounding
out the display input when data was not being displayed. The possibility
is also pretty good that neither designed their part with the 2465, or
the other designer, in mind. They designed to spec.

The simple fix would have been to add VS5 to deselect the display channel.

Chuck, I am sure you understand that "complex circuit" on Ch5 input to U400, the Channel Switch. I think I do but I will document it for others and I hope you will correct any errors.
U485A and U485B form a differential amplifier whose operation depends on current to their common emitters through R483. Diode CR484 is fitted to stop the amplifier by "stealing" the emitter current when U975 pin 1 is high. U485C and U485D form a similar amplifier that is disabled when the Pin 3 of U975 is high. The outputs from these two differential amplifers is joined by the common collectors of U485B and U485D. U975A acts to select one or the other (not both) of these two amplifiers. Amplifier One (U485A and U485B) carries the readout signal as presented on pin 2 of U485A. Amplifier Two (U485C and U485D) "amplifies" the ground that is present on pin 6 of U485C. Thus, the signal at pin 6 of U475C is either Readout Vertical or ground, depending on the logic state of U975A. U475C is a simple emitter follower to provide the current that drives the input to Ch5+ on U400 and other circuitry. That other circuitry includes another differential amplifier (unswitched this time) comprised of U475A and U475B that inverts the Ch5+ signal for input to U475D and on to Ch5-. U475D is another emitter follower to drive current into Ch5- on U400.
Bottom line, a somewhat complex yet straight forward "mux" to present either Readout Vertical or Ground to the inputs of U400 Ch5.
I was surprised by the number of components Tek used to accomplish such a simple task and aks the question: "why doesn't the Channel Switch ignore Ch5 inputs when Ch1 or Ch2 is selected?" I concluded that late in the development of the 2465 they discovered U400 "leaks" Ch5 into Ch1 and Ch2. The dies for U400 were proved and mass production had likely begun. The only solution was to block the "leak" by adding a switch in the pathway for Ch5 input so it is "grounded" when Ch1 or Ch2 is running. No time for special IC's and fidelity was important. So Tek built a kludge to mitigate the problem. It was cheap, and it worked, and it prevented a complex redesign of U400, so it stayed for the 2465A and 2465B.

Chuck. Thanks for the information.

Without knowing me you should not say things like " Seriously? You obviously have never sold much of anything on ebay." This is not true and the only bad experience I had selling on ebay was a buyer claiming he did not receive the item when I had a tracking number showing delivery - could be someone took it from his porch or he just did not want to pay for it - I'll never know.

I think we all can agree that ebay policy allows abuse - whether this occurred in this circumstance - none of us will ever know for sure. If you were at an auction in person and another bidder bid you up another $100 and then said I'm not interested anymore right after the sale and you two were the only bidders at the end - you would not be happy either. Then the auctioneer turns to you and says you want it for the jacked up price?

Regarding your comment about Dennis owing the tekscopes group. First, thank you Dennis for doing this and I'm grateful for the forum to discuss Tek scopes. I would also like to say that if folks are threatening to toss me out for providing what I believe was an honest opinion - go ahead - I don't want to be part of a group that cannot tolerate differences of opinion.

I will try in the future to keep it to the technical stuff and since I have a multiplier that needs installed in the 465 I think I'll move to that. Wife just said somethings wrong with the dishwasher and I need to stop chatting so I need to go.

Hi David, Re/wrong transistor:

So,……David, you installed an incorrect transistor. David,…..David, ….What Were you thinking ? That has never…..never happened to me .. I have….read….about guys who install an IC backwards in it’s socket……never…ever happened to me. I also know that if you install an eprom (with the glass window ) backwards in it’s socket, it will Momentarily glow like a little light bulb for 500 mS and for unknown reasons , cease to remember anything again……. IS that something that happened to me ? Well. Like a good democrat I learned Truth is a Relative Concept: it depends on what your concept of IS…IS !.......

I do remember in my first college days in my first Lab with a Lab-Partner ( i.e. the Responsible Party to blame ) we were to study oscillator circuits.. I went to the Supplies room to ask for the applicable tube ( Transistors had been invented but not available ) . We installed the tube and wired the ckt accordingly. We then applied power and the filament turned-on,……and turned-on more,….and then Really turned-on,…and then it got white-hot. We looked at each other and said ‘ Is that how hot, tubes run’ ? ( No one in the Lab had ever seen a naked vacuum tube operating ! ) There was then a small explosion as the tube blew up…….

The Professor came over and pointed out we had wired the filament to the +150 VDC source…….I think it was the old bug-a-boo of where is Pin-1 if you look from the bottom, or the top of the socket….. So…..so much to learn……

I had to back to the Supplies Stockroom and the old white-haired supplies man and get another tube. I was informed that ‘tubes do not grow like grass and this would be my last free tube. If I was too stupid to be an engineer , I would have to personally pay the $ 1.50 for this type tube ! This when a loaf of bread was 50 cents. ……………I told the Lab-Partner he should never..ever have wired that socket incorrectly , and I was never going to be the guy to get the tubes again. !

Like this one (shameless self promotion) http://artekmanuals.com/ and
you don't get any of the Yahoo double link BS ( Why they thought that
was a good idea no one understands)

Yes by all means get rid of Windows-10 MAIL and it's predecessor
Outlook. I have been using Thunderbird ( free by Mozilla) and its
predecessor for over 15 years with no headaches that I can remember.

Our HD crashed and I have been setting up Windows 10 MAIL. Not so

below. And again no >> quote option.

Let me just mention the relevance of a well-working and tested VISA
driver...

My friendly hint:
I have simply waited long enough to source a original National
Instrument USB-GPIB adapter for a very reasonable amount from ePay -
it came in at a hobbyist-budget friendly price of 100 and it works
with NI VISA without any hair-pulling...

Cheers,

Magnus
