Can analog scopes be stacked?
« on: January 19, 2014, 11:25:11 PM »
I just obtained a second o'scope, Goldstar OS 904RD 40 MHz and, since space is very limited here at Pirate Labs,  I was wondering if I could stack this scope under my Tektronics 2213 without any ill effects?

I would place spacers between to allow air flow, like a few inches, but I was wondering if them being this close would cause any measurement errors?

My circuits are not complex enough where I could ever foresee needing 2 two channel scopes running at the same time so, only one would be in operation.  With this in mind, is this a bad idea or is it ok?  As I said, space is at a premium here.

I traded some unused equipment for this scope and did not really need it but, hey, it can't hurt to have a second one right?

As an aside, I downloaded a manual for this scope from the makers but, it is in Korean!  I can't translate it as it is in image files.

Thanks for the help you guys,

Bill

Sure, stack 'em, why not.

You might notice a tiny bit of distortion in one or the other of the scope's trace display, like a tilt or more astigmatism, but probably not even that. The CRT is sensitive to local magnetic fields. My 2213a sits on top of my F43 FG and under the DP101 pulse generator, and right next to the HP180a scope.

Excellent.  Thank you for the response.

You're very welcome. I'm sure you'll have no problems as long as you leave room for the heat to escape, and the 2213 doesn't heat up much.

I thought you might be interested in seeing my "rack". (I'll show you mine, if you show me yours....)

This is most of my main kit. Several power supplies and lesser-used test items are tucked away under and behind the main "rack". I don't have very much space so I have to cram it all together. The laptop with the Link DSO display is out of view just below the HP180a scope.
