The vertical signal path of the 507 does not contain amplifiers. It has a 5 nanosecond risetime. The input impedance of the 507 is 72 Ω. The maximum sensitivity is deliberately low, at 50 V/cm.
The input attenuator is very unusual for Tek scopes. It is a switch with ten positions in "% of signal", where each step is 10%. The deflection signal is permanently AC-coupled and, unusually, the DC blocking capacitor is after the input attenuator.
The 507 has a total acceleration voltage of 24 kV, produced by four 1X2 tubes. The lower-voltage power supplies, located in the external box, are all tube except for selenium rectifiers for some of the lower voltages.
The 507 uses the T507 CRT.
