Curve of Fig which is for the old type A tube with untreated plate

It is to be expected that all secondary electrons emitted by the plate will return to the plate when the plate voltage is higher than the screen voltage. The rise in plate current starting at voltages considerably lower than the screen voltage shows, however, that many secondary electrons return to the plate while the screen is still positive relative to the plate. The reason for this is the retarding field at the plate produced by electron space charge between the screen and the plate. (It...

It helps to make possible the measurement of a small second harmonic in the presence of a large fundamental. A singly tuned filter does not tune sharply enough to make possible measurement of the amplitude of a small-amplitude component whose frequency does not differ greatly from that of a large-amplitude component. To overcome this difficulty...

Tubes for the production of modulated light. If the electrode spacing and gas pressure are correct, the outer surface of the cathode is uniformly covered with glow. Another type of tube is the crater lamp illustrated in Fig. 12-2b. The cathode consists of a solid cylinder which fits within a thin cylindrical anode and is separated from the anode by mica, and in the outer end of which is a cone-shaped depression. The design is such that, the discharge takes place between the 1 See,...

At a given value of C, Ce has its maximum value when r is zero. The effective resistance shunting Ce is then infinite and the effective capacitance is It is evident that very large values of effective capacitance can be obtained with this circuit if A is large. Since A may be varied by means of the bias of one or more grids of a stage to which inverse feedback is not applied, the value of the effective capacitance may be readily varied. The input voltage E must, of course, be maintained low...

Vck Application

Values change with ratio of load resistance to series inductance. voltage but requires four filament transformers. In the double three-phase rectifier with balance coil, induced voltages in the balance coil cause equal currents to flow simultaneously in two phases, one in each wye. This results in low average and peak tube currents, but the peak inverse tube voltage is comparatively high. Many other connections are possible, some of which give increased efficiency or improved voltage...

This type of modulation is called linear plate modulation plate-voltage modulation . The circuit of the linear plate modulator is similar to that of Fig. 9-2, but the modulation input transformer is in the plate circuit, instead of in the grid circuit. A graphical explanation of the operation of the circuit may be given with the aid of Fig....

And Ci, and the inductances of the chokes are made large enough so q4 that they do not appreciably affect the oscillation frequency. As a variable-frequency oscillator the Colpitts oscillator is less convenient to use than the tuned-plate, tuned-grid, or Hartley oscillators, owing to the necessity of varying both Ci and C2 in order to maintain oscillation. It has been found suitable for use in marine work, because the condensers may be sealed against moisture and the circuit tuned by means of a...

Grid After extinction these electrons are trapped on the grid and the

Condensers C and C'3, making the grid voltage highly negative. A positive pulse of voltage applied to the input reduces the negative grid voltage for an instant and allows the tube to fire. If desired, the condenser C may be omitted and the tube fired by discharging C2 in any manner or by applying an impulse to the grid through a transformer in series with C2. This circuit is useful in the production of voltage and current surges of various shapes.1 The wave form is dependent upon the portion...

Inverted vacuum-tube voltmeter. 15-10. Inverted Voltmeter. A very useful meter for the measurement of high voltages has been described by Terman.1 This meter is called the inverted voltmeter because the usual functions of the grid and the plate are interchanged. Its action depends upon the fact that the grid current which flows when a positive voltage is applied to the grid of a triode may be controlled by negative plate voltage. Figure 15-23 shows the method of measuring high...

The tungsten sensitivity of a phototube is the ratio of the anode current at a specified steady anode voltage to the

Lumens entering the tube from a tungsten-filament lamp operated at a color temperature of 2870 K. Variational sensitivity of a phototube is the ratio of the change in anode current at a specified steady anode voltage to the change in the total luminous flux entering the tube. As most precisely used, the term refers to infinitesimal changes, as indicated by the defining equation It is evident that the variational sensitivity is the slope of the curve of current vs. flux at given values of anode...

Magnetostriction Oscillator

Impedance-stabilized oscillator of generalized form. greater frequency stability was found experimentally for a tightly coupled oscillator than for a loosely coupled one. The form of the equations for stabilizing capacitance shows that for most types of oscillators it is necessary to vary the stabilizing capacitance with the tuning capacitance when adjustable frequency is required. When grid or plate stabilization alone is used, the required stabilizing capacitance is proportional...

Moving object will appear to be stationary when examined by the light

The requirements of such a light source are 1 easily controlled frequency of illumination, to allow synchronization of light and motion over a large frequency range, 2 extremely short duration of light flash, so that the moving part under observation will not appear to move while it is illuminated, and 3 light of great brightness, so that the moving part will be clearly seen despite the short time of illumination. By acting as a shutter of extremely high speed, the stroboscopic light source...

Glowtube Protective Devices Another interesting application of the glow tube is in theprotection of electrical

Surge voltages.1 Connected across the apparatus, the glow tube serves as a by-pass for surge voltages above the ignition potential of the tube. It is evident that the extinction potential should be higher than the normal voltage of the apparatus which it protects, in order that the tube may extinguish when the surge is over. Heating of the electrodes may cause the glow to change into an arc. For this reason a current-limiting resistance must be provided if the circuit is capable of supplying...
