The Type 544 is a 50 MHz scope introduced in 1964. It has one timebase. The timebase has several horizontal magnifier modes: x2, x5, x10, x20, x50, and x100. To make horizontal magnification usable, the 544 has a vernier horizontal position control in addition to the regular horizontal position control. The fastest calibrated sweep is 10 ns/div. Some magnification modes provide sweeps faster than 10 ns/div, but in those modes the horizontal scale is not calibrated, and a lamp on the front panel lights up to remind the operator of that.
A factory modification, MOD 108G, was available that increased the accelerating voltage to 24 kV. The 1968 catalog lists an RM544 Mod 720 which has a direct-access plug-in and has 1 ns risetime.
