I have been doing some repairs to my 4708, in doing so I have designed and built an extender card set for the Datron 4XXX series calibrators.

It's a two card solution that covers all eight big cards. I have not yet worked out the cable extensions needed for the PA card cables for when the PA card is on the extender. I am going to look at possibly doing a breakout board for extending the cables and probing lines.

Photos of the extender card in action with the Digital/CPU card extended can be emailed on request. As you can see the extender card flips the Datron card 180 degrees to allow probing of the test points on the card. It also allows direct probing of component pads and leads using the component views in the manual. Each edge connector line has a probe hook for scope or meter probes, all 120 of them!

If you are interested in purchasing a set or have questions please drop me an email.

I am looking for the OP and Service manuals for the FEI FE-5440A or TD-1251/U. I tried the offices of responsibility and was informed that the equipment and manuals were non existent since it was too old.   :-(

I was hoping some one here could help, either to purchase or borrow.

Manuals are:
T.O. 49B3-36-1 OP
T.O. 49B3-36-2 Service

If the crew of your lab are not aware of the names of the participating labs, just check it in as a regular item, not mentioning ILCP status.

Hi guys!

Well we ended up not doing it as we could not find an adapter for it. The customer purchased a new gauge from somewhere that was supposedly already calibrated. I have my doubts.
