Interestingly, a company named Lavoie made “exact” (well sort-of) Tek knock-offs of the 53x and maybe the 54x scopes. The story I heard told that this opportunity came about because the military was pressured to open bid for scopes meeting the Tektronix specifications. I have used some Lavoie scopes a long time ago. From the outside they looked almost exactly like the Tek scope they copied, but the knobs were different. However, they were not the same level of quality construction on the inside as the Tek scopes.

That’s my two cents, FWIW.

Re: Hello to the group, and a WTB

Welcome!By "everything missing", do you mean that the metal channel that runs the length of the scope is missing also, or just the two handles? Seems that I recall someone making leather handle replacements about 10 years ago, but it might have been a limited run.  You'd think that a good leather worker on Etsy would see the market for the handles!

Ken,

I had a Jettronix 535 equivalent 50 years ago.  I have a Lavoie La-265 and the CA equivalent.  It hasn't been powered up in probably 15 or 20 years.

Calibration of the Measure Function on a TDS220

Steve Hendrix
 

I'm new to the group, so please forgive any faux pas on my part!

I have long used a TDS220 and still like it a lot. I note that the Measure function, specifically displaying a DC voltage numerically, has always had a nontrivial offset that seems larger than it should be. I even sent it out to a Tek cal lab, and it seemed to be unchanged afterward. Here are examples of the offset from ideal (zero) with the ground clip clamped directly on the probe tip, standard x10 probe:

V/Div VDC
50 2.96
20 1.14
10 0.377
5 -0.012
2 0.111
1 0.055
0.5 0.021
0.2 0.001
0.1 -0.007
0.05 -0.005
0.02 0.005

Are these numbers reasonable for the instrument, or is there some adjustment I can make?

Initially Dumont was probably the leader in oscilloscope technology for a few years, but Tektronix quickly took the lead.
By the mid 1960s, Dumonts were easy to find and not expensive for high school kids with "pump gas-cut grass-throw papers" money. The low frequency response made them less than ideal for TV shop work, and useless for repairing the color circuits in TVs. A Heathkit, Eico, or perhaps RCA might be within reach, but a Tektronix was a dream most of us had to wait some time for.


I believe Dumont was eventually acquired by Fairchild. I actually owned a dual beam, four channel Fairchild/Dumont scope. I also owned a number of other Dumont scopes. They really weren???t knock-offs.
I was given a monsterous Dumont dual beam scope that did not work. I restored it and used it mostly for audio. I think it might have made it to 500KC.

Interestingly, a company named Lavoie made ???exact??? (well sort-of) Tek knock-offs of the 53x and maybe the 54x scopes.

I used them in the Air Force. The ones we had were "clones" of the 524. They worked ok, but just were not the "real thing". There was indeed an effort to avoid relying on one maker for a while. One of the most interesting was the Eldeco copy of the Collins KWM-2 transceiver

Problomatic (broken) 464 storage scope.

mark@...
 

Ok,.. I am looking for some pointers if you would be so kind,... I have a broken 464 scope... the symptoms are as follows:-
1) The scope powers up,.. but the beam is not running correctly,.. ie as it was failing the beam was going back in time in a curly pattern,...
2) Beam finder does bring the beam in though
3) Fan does not make a continuous tone/noise... ie speed changes.
A) So far I have checked for magic smoke and burnt etc,.. so far nothing!
B) Have measure main voltages,.. And this is where things start going to pot:

5 volts DC measures 5.58v,.. with more ripple than I can measure
-8 Volts DC measures in at -8.4v again with loads of ripple.
+15 Volts DC measures in at 15.8v,. with loads of ripple
+65 Volts measures in at 68v and loads of ripple
140 Volts measures in at 134v with loads of ripple.

So clearly, ( I assume ) the power supply looks suspect,...

I sort of suspected failed input electrolytics.... but reading further forum stuff this seems unlikely as they are essentially Mil. grade components,.. so probably not the source of my problem.
I have also seen other utube video where the voltages are measured ,.. and mine are no where near close or as stable as these....
My other thoughts then go of to the Tant caps... are there are lots of them,.. the ones in the supply do not appear as short,.. as the is measurable resistance...(less than 10 ohms,.. is this normal?).

Now I'm thinking there may be issues on another board which is dragging the main supply down,.. causing the massive ripple and cycling,.. ( do not have a second scope,.. which makes life more difficult for sure ), But I think the supply may be in a cycle of dipping in and out,.. and failing to get to normal operation ,.. because of some down stream fault.

As the failing supply with also give the timebase scans trouble as there is nothing stable,.. I also noted prior to complete failure was that vertical calibration had gone to pot,.. simple DC signals of 5v did not show as 5v on the scope... so everything seemed to be in a cascade failure,.. but all leading be back to the power supply,.. but is this correct.

Before I start jumping in a stripping things apart,... isolating boards etc,... does anyone on have any pointers for me,.. as I am hoping someone may be able to offer some more informed paths to tread and try ,.. before I jump in with a soldering iron and spanners
many thanks

Re: still trying to track down 2216 manuals

I have one of the 2216's and the original owners manual (in poor condition) and would love to find a service manual (electronic preferred).
If there are any updates on this thread it would be appreciated.
Also I have the rack mount 'ears' but the 'inserts' that go into the side 'holes' that hold the scope into the brackets are missing.
Does anyone have pictures or source of these little guys?
Looks like there are four per bracket.

Thanks for any tidbits on this nice 'digitizing' analog scope :)

Re: Dumont knock off of Tek

Jim Potter
 

I'm guessing that scope didn't have any amplifiers or sweep. That meant you had to have big enough voltage signals to deflect the beam directly. It would be interesting to see more detailed specifications.

Hello--

And before that, in 1934 General Radio offered an oscilloscope

Not so much a problem, but that the traces are running at about a 60 hz rate, so 10 traces refreshes about 6 times a second (or less, since it's a half cycle).  That's where the flicker/refresh rate comes in.  On a 7904, I have not seen an objection from my point of view, but that's just me.

The refresh rate is inherent in the collector supply voltage.

I have just acquired one of the above 1ns cables for the s-6 & s-52 & 7s12. Does anybody have info about how to use this cable..... Specifically about bending (or not !) ?
