Vacuum Tube - 6012, Tetrode, Thyratron
New-Old-Stock (NOS) tube.
The 6012 isa negative control, xenon filled, four electrode thyratron designed for use in relay and grid-controlled rectifier applications. One type 6012 will carry 0.5 ampere in motor-control and in inverter service.
Use of the shield-grid type of construction permits a very low preconduction control grid current to flow. This permits the use of a high resistance in the control grid circuit. The grid control characteristic is independent of ambient temperature from -75 to 90 degrees Centigrade due to the tube's inert gas filling. The 6012 mounts in a standard octal socket.
