Information
                                    The TEKTRONIX TM 506 Power Module is a mainframe for the TM
500 Series of Modular Instrumentation. It accepts up to six
independently functional plug-in modules to form a versatile
and compact instrumentation system. The TM 506 provides the
basic power source and an interconnecting scheme for the
other members of the TM 500 Series family. Factory options
allow customer modification using signal access at the
plug-in module/power module interface to provide rear panel
inputs and outputs, and interconnections between compartments.
Power Source

The instrument is designed to operate from a power source
with its neutral at or near earth (ground) potential with a
separate safety-earth conductor. It is not intended for
operation from two phases of a multi-phase system, or across
the legs of a single phase, three-wire system.
Power Usage

With six plug-in modules installed, the TM 506 requires up
to 320 watts at the upper limits of the high line voltage
ranges. Actual power consumption depends on the particular
module combination and operating modes selected.

NOTE

The compartment closest to the PULL ON POWER switch is high
power. Some of the TM 500 Series plug-in modules require
high power to operate at their maximum capabilities.
Operating Temperatures

The TM 506 can be operated in an ambient air temperature of
0°C to 50°C. Thermal cut out devices protect the system by
disconnecting the power to the TM 506 Power Module when
internal temperatures rise above a safe operating level.
These devices automatically return power to the unit when
the internal temperatures return to a safe level.
Since the TM 506 can be stored in temperatures between -40°C
and —75°C, allow the instruments chassis to return to within
the operating limits before applying power.
