These are some early bulletins and publications from Tektronix


Phase Angle Measurements

This Electronics December 1954 ad features the Type 531 and 535 oscilloscopes which were the first to feature plug-ins.  The Type 53 plug-in featured dual trace.

Note the ad for a free booklet on how to do phase angle measurements.

These 1955 bulletins compare new products features and announce phase out of older products.  We especially like the obsolescence notice for the 512 with tnew orders will be built on a "when-we-get-to-it" basis, whatever that means.  Click on the image to view the PDF.


This March 27, 1956 bulletin appears to be a summarization of an Electronics February 1944 article on on using load lines to set triode bias.  We cannot find the original Electronics magazine.  Click on the image to view the PDF.
