Visit :The Museum of Tek Scopes" for more information about the history of this equipment

Most of the Tek scopes of this era were plug-in scopes, i.e. they had an interchangeable vertical input amp. The two most common plug-in types for these scopes are the "Letter" series, which later became the "1" series, and the 2/3 series. The difference between 2 and 3 series plugins is that only the 2 series can be used in the 560 scope. Reason is power draw, the 560 had a very feeble power supply. The 561, 561A, 561B, 564, 564B, 567, and 568 can use 2 or 3 series.
Also, the 2 and 3 series were the successors to the 60 and 70 series, with the same restrictions. The 60 and 70 series plugins were renumbered by adding 2A/2B and 3A/3S/3T prefixes as appropriate. There were also a few 50 series plugins (50, 51, 59) with very limited functionality, really for some dedicated applications.
There are also some other (less common) plugins, for example the "80" series, and the "9" "10" and "11" series. Tek also made several non-plugin scopes.
  • "1" Type plug-ins go in 530, 540 and 550 series scopes,
  • "2" and "3" Type plug-ins go in 560 series scopes, with the 560 itself limited to "2" series plug-ins,
  • "80" Type plug-ins go in 580 series scopes.
