Hello,

Can anyone tell me what this was used for,
and what it is a part of?

Westinghouse Test Meter Unit Type TCT.
Style 293B331A09.

Unit measures approx. 17" W x 5" H x 3.25" D,
and is completely enclosed.

It has two 4.5" W x 4" H meters.

The left meter is R.F. Milliamperes, with 4 scales:
0-100, 250, 500, 1000.  A 5 position switch,
(RF MA, OFF, 1000, 500, 250, 100), is to the left
of this meter.

The right meter is a VOM (20K ohms/volt DC, 5K ohms/volt AC).
To the right of this meter  are two switches:
One is FUNCTION: OFF, DCV/DC MA, ACV, DB, 2.5 DC AMPS, OHMS.
The other is RANGE: 0-2.5 AC, 0-10, 50, 250, 500 V AC/DC;
0-.25, 2.5, 25, 250, 1000 MA; R x1, x10, x100, x1K, x10K;
0 DB, +12 DB, +26 DB, +40 DB, +46 DB.

Between the two meters is an OHMS ADJ control.
Below each meter are 5-way binding post connectors.

On either end of the front panels are curved handles,
in the center of which is a button that when depressed,
allows spring latches on either end on the unit to
retract inside the unit, thus allowing this unit to
be inserted into another unit.

Thank you,

Bruce WA8TNC
