#107444 - How do adjust the cap trimmers?
Responding to: Kai Klaas's previous message
To obtain optimum results, the cap trimmers of the following dampening network must be adjusted properly. This is done by the help of a good square wave of about 500Hz, or so. You can use the output of a 74HCMOS gate, for instance. Adjust all the trimmers, so that an ideal square wave can be seen on screen, means a square wave neither showing overshots nor rounded edges. Don't worry, the adjustment is really simple, the only thing you need is a special isolated (correctly spoken metal free) screw driver, manufactured for such adjusting tasks. You can also carve it from a wooden toothpick by yourself...



1. Choose 1:1 dampening of probe, choose 1:1 dampening of scope. Adjust probe for ideal square wave.

2. Choose 1:1 dampening of probe, choose 10:1 dampening of scope. Adjust cap trimmer across 909k resistor for ideal square.

3. Choose 10:1 dampening of probe, choose 10:1 dampening of scope. Adjust cap trimmer at 909k resistor to ground for ideal square wave.

4. Choose 1:1 dampening of probe, choose 100:1 dampening of scope. Adjust cap trimmer across 1M resistor for ideal square.

5. Choose 10:1 dampening of probe, choose 100:1 dampening of scope. Adjust cap trimmer at 1M resistor to ground for ideal square wave.

Take care, that you don't introduce stray capacitance by your hands during the calibration. So, close the enclosure and verify the correctness of calibration after the adjustment.
