Re;Tektronix S-4 Head

Dear Tektronix Group.

Attempting to Test a Tektronix S-4 Sampling Head but without Success !! Tektronix 7S11 + S-4 Head placed in Tektronix 7854 4-Slot Mainframe (Right Vertical)
And Tektronix 7T11A placed in (A Horizontal) - With No User Manuals it’s proofing difficult to Display a meaningful result with a 1 GHz Source.

Any assistance very welcome and more so with Switch Settings and Interpretation of Results.

Many thanks,
Marc Christina

What means without success? I think you'd better be more specific yourself about settings, cabling and the like. Is this combo working correctly with another sampling head? Or at lower frequencies? If this is completely new for you then please have a look at the Operating sections in the 7T11 and S-4 instruction manuals.

Be warned that triggering the 7T11 can be tricky to say the least - it often takes me ages to get a well triggered trace. If internal triggering isn't working, try using external triggering.

Also can you trigger at lower sweep speeds (on say a 10kHz, 100kHz or 1MHz signal)?
