  • 1960
  • Dual Trace
  • 16 Valves, the majority being ECC88's.
  • 3½" inch green screen CRT type 3AZP31.
  • 5MHz Bandwidth
NOTES A dual trace 'scope clearly intended to be mounted into an instrumentation rack.

Although the right hand side looks like a plug-in module, this is in fact the second 'Y' amplifier and is fixed. The second 'Y' amplifier has an additional valve allowing A.C. voltage sensitivities down to 1mV/cm (if you can tolerate a 20Kc/s bandwidth).

The EHT is generated using a Cockroft-Walton multiplier which is basically just a pile of diodes and capacitors. However, this is 1960 and suitable high voltage rectifiers can't have been available as a total of eight stages were needed to generate the comparatively feeble 1.1Kv EHT.
SERVICE
DATA
Came with a manual for the Solartron CD1014 which described the 'scope as being "...attractively styled in a light weight case." Clearly the wrong manual then! But the circuit diagram and general description seem to match the CD1016. You can download the CD1014's manual from the service data page.
CURRENT
STATE
When bought, the chap selling it said it needed attention, "probably a cap". Looks like he was right as one of the electrolytics is missing ! Looks like it was removed as opposed to having exploded though, so thats O.K.
WHERE
FOUND
Bought at the Sambrook Summer Special, July 2001 for a fiver.
