Tektronix/Huntron Tracker TR210 or Tracker 200 schematic diagram ?

Hi All,

I am the owner of an elderly but very useful Tracker HTR1005B-1S and have just been fortunate enough to get my hands on a Tektronix/Huntron TR210. The TR210 has the advantage of additional features similar to those of the Tracker 2000 and, most importantly for me, the very low voltage range for working on the more delicate VLSI chips and circuits. I have always been a little concerned about using the HTR1005B-1S on modern very low voltage chips such as those that operate at less than 3.3V.

I have the Tektronix User and Service manuals for the TR210 but sadly no schematic diagram is provided in either. Whilst searching for information on the unit I stumbled across the Huntron Tracker 200 which looks to be the same unit. I have found only the user manual for the Tracker 200 so I am still without a schematic diagram.

I should be grateful if anyone with knowledge of these units woulld advise me whether a schematic diagram is available for the TR210 or the Tracker 200, and if not, is the TR210 very similar in design to the Tracker 2000 ? (apart form the CRT circuit of course)

Best wishes to all

Fraser

Hi Fraser,
Welcome to the Huntron Support Forum.

I can probably dig up a schematic for you. It's an older product so give me a bit to find the diagrams.
Does that Tracker have some sort of problem?
By the way, the TR210 and Tracker 200 are the same. Huntron made the TR210 for Tek.

Thanks.

Hi Curtis,

Thank you for the welcome and for your very kind offer of help with a schematic.

I just purchased the TR210 as "tested for power on only" so want to be prepared for any faults that may come with it :-)

As a techie I also like to have the schematic 'on-file' in case of future problems, should they occur. The unit will be used in a hobby electronics capacity and will fit my humble needs perfectly.

No hurry on this and your assistance is greatly appreciated.

Kindest Regards

Fraser

Curtis,

My Tracker 200 (S/N: 23A-01156) just brok down. The two TIP130 burnout and replacing them, the fuse is still breaking.
Is it possible to send me the diagrams of this unit.
Thanks a lot.
I'm fully dependent on this equipment today.
