Tektronix TG501 Generator
TIME MARK GENERATOR
The TG 501
is a general purpose Time Mark Generator Plug-In
designed to operate in a TM 500 Series Power Module. A
Variable Timing Readout provides a simple but accurate means
of measuring timing errors over ±7.5% minimum range. Since
many specifications are given in percentages, the error
readout eliminates the need for computations and,
additionally, lessens parallax discrepancies.
waves are selected by self-canceling push-buttons when the
rotary switch is in the 521 n position.
All outputs are available at the front-panel connectors, or
by modification at the Interface
connector, located at the
back of the Plug-In
, and the TM 500 Series Power Module.
Marker selection from 5 s through 1 ns in a 1, 2, 5,
sequence is available. 5 s through 10 ns markers are
selected by a rotary switch. 5, 2, and 2 ns modified sine
Power supplies are current limited. The 5 V supply is
over-voltage protected to avoid damage to the integrated
