I’ve acquired (saved from the landfill) an old Tektronix high voltage probe, model P6015. The probe body and cable are in decent condition, but I discovered two damaged potentiometers in the compensation box (R3, R5), one of which had been previously replaced with the wrong value.
I managed to locate a copy of the original manual, and it indicates the following ratings for each:
I’m looking at sourcing comparable replacements, and there are plenty of options that can be made to fit mechanically into the previous location. I’d like to know if there are any considerations I should make based on the original circuit / age of the device, or if a standard 20% or lower tolerance potentiometer will be adequate?
I appreciate any suggestions from the community.
