It was in two parts. The tube was mounted separately on a stand, and the power supply, in a separate cabinet, was connected to it by a cable. By this time Professor Frederick Bedell of Cornell University had invented the so-called linear sweep circuit, which did, at last, provide a means to traverse the spot across the screen at a constant speed and with a steady display. This invention, after the tube itself, was the most important advance up to that time in cathode-ray oscillography. Based upon this invention, GR produced the first commercial linear sweep circuit, called the Type 506-A Bedell Sweep Circuit.

"K" is a multiplier by which the regular base salary of each participant is multiplied to determine his actual pay month by month. To set the value of "K," the normal predicted dollar output of the plant working at full time, but with no overtime, is calculated at the beginning of each year (or more frequently if an unusual situation should develop), and the amount is approximately the same as the expected sales rate.
