6BG6GA
Beam Power Tube

EIA Base & Outline

EIA Base: 5BTEIA Bulb: 12-21

Substitute Data

Substitutes ................................... 6GC6
Source ........................................ GE DS 06/55

Application

Source ........................................ GE DS 06/55
Glass octal type used as output amplifier in horizontal-deflection circuits of television equipment where high surge voltages occur during short duty cycles.

Source ........................................ GE DS 06/55
A single 6BG6GA 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.

Source ........................................ GE DS 06/55
Tube requires octal socket. Vertical tube mounting is prefered but horizontal operation is permissable if pins 2 and 7 are in the vertical plane.
