Re: TM500 / 5000 Extenders

Dan,

Do the electronic components on your board make it incompatible to extend the 5000 series mainframe scopes? I see that pads 3 & 4 are ganged together. Does that also make it incompatible?

I've got a 5CT1N curve tracer that I need to work on with my 5440 and would love to use your extender as long as it does melt it. Pin 1A has 200v on the mainframe.

Thanks, Rick

OK, that makes a lot of sense.  I was confused by the fact that there were no thru ports for electrical, and that the container seemed ill-suited for whatever the sensor assembly was detecting. The container does have an o-ring.  
Thanks All for the info; I wasn't getting much searching, maybe because I was using duckduckgo.

Google search found that it is a " Focused Mesh Multiplier (MM-1). For

Re: 475 Sweep question

donald collie
 

I found a dead transistor in the Z Amp, which prompted me to check all the
Z Amp transistors, but the rest are OK. My 453A does this on the fastest
sweep setting, but only half a major division, and my 7834 not at all. The
Z compensation adjustment capacitor has no effect, so I`ll look in the
sweep section for the adjustment.

Those are Tek-made, hermetically sealed plastic film caps, and should never fail in normal use. Let them be. Ed


Re: Hopefully the last 485 recap question

That is not an aluminum electrolytic capacitor. That is
a very high quality capacitor, leave it alone.

Really, if you are replacing parts like that, you are doing
your scope great harm.

The body of any aluminum electrolytic capacitor that
I am aware of is made from aluminum. It won't solder
without special efforts.

Could you be more specific?

Thank you, Philip, for the memory jog. I've seen that style of tag, many times, but forgot due to years of non-refresh.

I'll take your word for it until I have time to independently confirm.

Sorry to the rest of you for reducing the signal to noise ratio. I was trying to help, but sometimes that goes wrong.

The sticker is likely a property ID tag having nothing to do with S/N.
Serial numbers were stamped in metal, on the front panel itself for early

Re: Replacing ceramics on a 485 recap

Ed Breya
 

I agree - ceramic caps hardly ever fail, especially in ordinary supply bypassing applications. They can get leaky, though, but that hardly matters for bypassing. I can recall only three ceramic cap electrical failures over the last decade or so. One was a HV type in the cathode supply of a scope, and the others were in PLL circuits, where leakage upset operation - one in a Rb standard, and one in a HP8566B. I have seen a few that were cracked and such, but that's mechanical failure due to external issues.

Re: Introducing a new Facebook page

jafinch78 .
 

I was wondering if FB performed some sort of advertising gimmick at first where searching was more consumer grade built into the website to build a larger customer database; then changed over to requiring more proprietary paid government, law enforcement or corporate services if not custom API programmed software to be able to mine the data since reminds me of a more advanced human information management system. Interesting how came out around the time the fusion centers were being implemented.

I don't mind personally since the more I study outside the USDA, DHHS, DOT, OSHA, DOI, DHS regulated industries... seems the narcissist, psychopath or sociopath criminal prefer the most isolated with least connections with something to steal from as a victim. DOD and DOJ sure does pander some strange deviant and sodomizing characters and operations.

Definitely isn't a six sigma or even lean sigma operation along with their sub jurisdictions from my experience... so I do understand why many don't like being on FB. I prefer being itemized more in my routines for the record in at least a lean sigma environment. That's why I like audit trails also, validated systems and am learning more of the range of EMF's in the EMS thanks to Tektronix systems now days before the straight shooting elders expire and we're left with queer junk trash.
