You just connect it to the circuit and it says C103 leaky & R 45 High resistance .....

if only :aaj

This was given to me, arrived with the mains lead cut off, and a fault in the voltage multiplier.

Seems to be an interesting instrument.

Pictured here with a diode across A & Com and then reversed.

Another piece of test gear saved from obscurity and brought back to life. Looks good.

Some time ago I found a Huntron Tracker 2000 in a WEEE skip and despite being dropped in there, only suffered from a few scrapes. Thread here http://www.forum.radios-tv.co.uk/viewtopic.php?t=5015&p=52949#p52949.

Tests with an EHT transformer overwind illustrates the difference between normal operation and one shorted turn.

Cheers
Rich

I've tried testing a lopt with it, doesn't seem to get any perceptible change.... then again I might not be doing it right. :cch

Just looked at Polar's website, £50 for an e copy of the manual. Ouch!

I have a Polar T550 toneohm here. I did find a manual for that online so I as hoping to find the site in case it had the manual for yours. No luck.
