Application

Source ........................................ RCA R-10 - 1932
The '47 is a power amplifier pentode for usc in the audio output stage of a-c receivers. It is capable of giving large power output with a relatively small input signal voltage. In comparison with three-electrode power amplifiers of the same plate dissipation, the '47 is capable of greater power output with the additional feature of higher amplification. This power-handling ability of the '47 is made possible by the addition of both a suppressor and a screen between the grid and plate.
