Default "Mette" D17 German Badged Oscilloscope?

Hi!

Just a quickie one!

Before I start writing out a whole brand new Manual from scratch, does anybody recognise this as something I can find bookwork for?

PS!

I recognize the bezel, knobs, switches and panel lettering from one of Gould's simple dual–channel products, but there's no model I can find online with a physical layout just like that – all the basic Gould models have their CRT on the left!

It reminds me a bit of the simple Scopex models - something like a 4D10?

Hi!

Most definitely not Scopex!

I'll post detailed pictures of the PCBs and any identifying numbers on them when I receive it, but at least having identified it's cosmetics as Gould manufacture, hopefully I can obtain replacement bits if anything gets busted between Germany and me!

It appears identical to a Dartron D12, as distributed by ITT in the late '70s.

No more info on that version either though...

Cheers

Hi!

It's definitely a Dartron D12 clone, certainly the cosmetics, knobs & panel Lettering is pure Gould with a modified colour scheme tho!!!!

There will be detailed pictures and circuit–sections posted as I complete them!
