the warranty page in this manual.
2-3. POWER REQUIREMENTS.
2-4. The Model 492A and Model 494A require a power
source of 115 volts

which can deliver approximately 225 watts.
2-5. POWER CABLE.
2-6. For the protection of operating personnel, the

2-8. I NST ALLATION.
2-9. The only special precaution necessary for in-
stalling the twt amplifiers is that they should not be
operated close to very large magnetic fields, such as
60-cycle fields, unless externally shielded.
the twt amplifiers are shielded within the cabinet,
complete protection against large low-frequency fields
would require more shielding than is practical to in-
clude in the design.
2-10. To operate, connect the instrument to a 115-
volt ac power source, check and adjust rube operating
currents as described in preliminary operating pro-
cedure, section 1Il, and connect to the external equip-
ment with coaxial cables terminated in standard UG-
2-11. In section
beginning with paragraph 5-32,
is a list of performance checks for this instrument.
These procedures make a good test as part of incom-
