Vacuum Tube - 2A5, Pentode, Power Amplifier
Type 2A5 is a pentode amplifier designed for application in power output stages of receivers. With the exception of heater ratings, their electrical characteristics are identical.
Vacuum Tube - 2E26, Pentode, Beam
V-H-F beam power amplifier.
Vacuum Tube - 3A4, Pentode, Power Amplifier
The 3A4 is designed for use in compact, lightweight, portable equipment. The relatively large filament employed in the 3A4 enables it to supply the high peak currents required in RF power applications.
Vacuum Tube - 3Q4, Pentode, Power
The type 3Q4 is a miniature type power-amplifier pentode designed for use in the output stage of battery operated equipment.
Vacuum Tube - 3S4 / DL92, Pentode, Power
Filamentary type power output pentode in the miniature construction. It is characterized by economy of filament power and ability to perform well at low plate supply voltages such as encountered in portable equipment.
Vacuum Tube - 3V4 / DL94, Pentode, Power
Miniature power amplifier pentode designed for use in the power output stage of compact, battery operated equipment. It is particularly useful in three-way portable receivers which employ 90-volta batteries.
Vacuum Tube - 6AB7 / 1853, Pentode, Remote Cut-Off, RF
High transconductance semi-remote cut-off amplifier tube designed for television RF and IF amplifier service. Precautions should be taken not to exceed dissipation rating with expected line-voltage fluctuations, especially with fixed-bias operation.
Vacuum Tube - 6AD7G, Pentode
Triode-power amplifier pentode
Vacuum Tube - 6AG5 / EF96, Pentode
Miniature type RF pentode having a sharp cut-off characteristic and a high value of transconductance. In compact, light-weight equipment it is useful as an RF amplifier up to about 400 megacycles.
Vacuum Tube - 6AG7 / 6AK7, Pentode, Power
Metal, power-amplifier pentode primarily designed for use in the output stage of video amplifiers. The tube is capable of operating at high plate current levels and exhibits high transconductance and high power sensitivity.
Vacuum Tube - 6AH6, Pentode, Sharp Cut-Off
Miniature sharp-cutoff pentode. Its high transconductance and low input and output capacitance adapt it to use as a wide-band amplifier or as a reactance tube.
Vacuum Tube - 6AJ5, Pentode, Sharp Cut-Off
Miniature sharp cutoff pentode designed for use where only low plate and screen voltages are available. The 6AJ5 is especially suitable for operation at high frequencies.
Vacuum Tube - 6AK5 / EF95, Pentode, Sharp Cut-Off
Miniature types used as rf or if amplifiers especially in high-frequency wide-band applications at frequencies up to 400MHz.
Vacuum Tube - 6AK6, Pentode
Heater-cathode type of tube intended for use in compact, light-weight equipment. Because of its small size, the 6AK6 can be used singly or in push-pull to effect a more compact design of power-line receivers.
Vacuum Tube - 6AN8A, Triode, Pentode
Medium mu triode and a sharp cutoff pentode. The pentode section may be used as an IF amplifier or a reactance tube; the triode section is well suited for use in low-frequency-oscillator, sync clipper, sync separator, and phase splitter circuits.
