Our cable now comes standard with external clip leads that are used to connect the vertical amplifier outputs on the vertical driver board A15 in the plugin to the vertical deflection plates of the CRT in the mainframe. Additional details of the location of the connections on A15 are shown here. For complete details, please refer to the service manuals for your particular plugin and mainframe.
