In the past. a rugged counter which was suitable for the prospecting of radio- active ores such as uraium, thorium and radium, was unsuitable for laboratory work due to the inability of combining accuracy with ruggedness. Conversely a laboratory counter, while being extremely sensitive, could not withstand use in the field where it would be subjected to abuse and abnormally hard knocks.

Speedy, yet efficient operation is accomplished by: L Simplification of all switching and controls. 2. Elimination of old style sockets used for testing obsolete tubes (26, 27, 57. 59, etc.) and providing sockets and circuits for efficiently testing the new Noval and Sub -Minar types. YOU C.tN'T INSERT A TUBE IN WRONG SOCKET It is impossible to insert the tube in wrong socket when using the new Model TD -55 Separate sockets are used, one for each type of tube base. If the tube fits in the socket it can be tested. CHECKS FOR SIIOlIl's AND LEAKAGES BETWEEN ALL ELEMENTS - The Model TD -55 provides a super sensitive method of checking for shorts and leakages up to 5 Megohms between any and all of the terminals. Continuity between various sections is individually indicated. This is important, especially in the case of an element terminating at more than one pin. In such cases the element or internal connection often completes a circuit. FREE- POINT" ELEMENT SWITCHING SYSTEM - The Model TD -55 incorporates a newly designed element selector switch system which reduces the possibility of obsolescence to an absolute minimum. Any pin may be used as a filament pin and the voltage applied between that pin and any other pin, or even the "top- cap." ELEMENTAL SWITCIIES ARE NUMBERED IN STRICT ACCORDANCE WITII R.M.A. SPECIFICATION - One of the most important improvements. we believe. L the fact that the 4 position fast -action snap switches are all numbered in exact accordance with the standard R.M.A. numbering system. Thus. if the element terminating in pin No. 7 of a tube is under test, button No. 7 is used for that test. The Model TO -5S comes complete with operating instructions and charts.

ALL COLOR TUBES Test ALL picture tubes -in the carton -out of the carton -in the set! Model 83 is not simply a rehashed black and white C R.T. Tester with a color adapter added. Model 83 employs a new improved circuit designed specifically to test the older type black and white tubes, the newer type black and white tubes and all color picture tubes. Model 83 Provides separate filament operating voltages for the older 6.3 types and the newer 8.4 types. Model 83 employs a 4" air- damped meter with quality and calibrated scales. Model 83 properly tests the red. green and blue sections of color tubes individually -for each section of a color tube contains its own filament, plate. grid and cathode. Model 83 will detect tubes which are apparently good but require rejuvenation. Such tubes will provide a picture seemingly good hot lacking in proper definition. contrast and focus. To test for such malfunction, you simply press the re). switch of Model 83. If the tube is weakening, the meter reading will indicate the condition.
