TDS784A option list
« on: September 28, 2017, 07:40:04 pm »
Folks!

I have a TDS784A. Pretty good condition, has options 13, 1F, 2F, 1M.

1M is easy enough to find. Extended memory, a whopping 500k memory! Whoop!

And that's it. Can't google foo the others. That is to say, I did find the options list for the 784D.

2F should be "extended waveform math". Sure enough, I can find FFT, integrals and differential math functions on the machine. So, that seems legit

13 should be RS232 and centronics. Those are indeed present on the backpanel, so that should be a match.

But finally 1F... haven't the fogiest. Anyone?

1F = floppy. Not an option at all really, as they all had them.

Floppy, as already stated.

That's odd, I checked the a user manual and it didn't mention 2F. Thanks!

Once again, not really an option. All TDS700X scopes came with 2F. That may be why it's not even mentioned.
On the TDS500X series, it was a real option
