82
Mercury-Vapor Full-Wave Rectifier

EIA Base & Outline

EIA Base: 4CEIA Bulb: 14-0
Source ........................................ RCA R-10 - 1932

Application

Source ........................................ RCA R-10 - 1932
The 82 is a full-wave mercury-vapor rectifier tube of the hot-cathode type for use in suitable rectifying devices designed to supply d-c power of uniform voltage to receivers in which the direct current requirement are subject to considerable variation. The excellent voltage regulation characteristic of the 82 is due to its low and practically constant voltage drop (only about 15 volts) for any current drain up to the full emission of the filament. The 82 is not interchangeable with any other rectifier type.
