Beam Power Tube

EIA Base & Outline

EIA Base: 5BTEIA Bulb: 16-5

Substitute Data

Substitutes ................................... 6GC6
Source ........................................ RCA RC-15 - 1947

Application

Source ........................................ RCA RC-15 - 1947
Glass octal type used as output amplifier in horizontal-deflection circuits of television equipment where high surge voltages occur during short duty cycles.

Source ........................................ RCA RC-15 - 1947
A single 6BG6G is capable of deflecting all types of directly viewed magnetic-deflection kinescopes having deflection angles not greater then 50 degrees and operating at anode voltages not exceeding 10 KV.
