Another newbie

Post by Number 6 on Thu Jan 22, 2015 12:00 am

Hello all,
I originally tried to join in November but my info somehow got lost. Many thanks to Willy3486 and the admins for figuring out what happened. I was also sick as a dog for the last few days. I have been on "the other" forum for a bit. I am always looking to broaden my knowledge in electronics. I am more of a lurker but I do like to keep up on things. Even though I liked to take things apart as a kid and have been working in the industry since about 1980 I still don't always know about simple things. I currently work on computer controlled propulsion systems that convert 600 vdc to 3 phase variable ac using GTOs, and one that converts the dc to 3 phase 60 hz ac using IGBTs and a delta-wye system as well as other stuff. I like both the old and new stuff, especially things that light up such as tubes, bulbs, LEDs, etc and also phototubes, photodiodes and phototransistors. I also like old test equipment because it has character as well as the complicated new stuff. I have built a number of kits including simple ones up to a Sencore emission tube tester and a digital radiation meter. So that's pretty much it. I am looking forward to reading and learning about all things electronic and otherwise.

Finally made it. Welcome to TRF. Glad I was able to help. If you know that much, even though quite different, tube equipment shouldn't be too had to learn, and, it sounds like you've already got a head start on it.
