2-6. The Model 333A/334A can be operated from any
ac source of 115 or 230 volts (+10%), at 50- 1000 cps.
With the instrument disconnected from the ac power
source, move the slide (located on the rear panel) un-
til the desired line voltage appears. The instrument
can be battery operated by connecting two 28-50 V
batteries (rated 80 milliamperes) to the battery ter-
minal on the rear panel. Power dissipation is 10 watts
