CV2349 gas-filled arc discharge tetrode
This is an arc discharge tetrode with a cathode designed for pulse operation. It is equally suited as a strobotron. It is based on the EN30.
(a) A minimum of 5A is necessary for the formation of an arc discharge with a tube drop of approx. 20V. if the main gap current is less than 5A peak, a glow discharge is likely to form with a 70V drop and result in excessive cathode dissipation.
(b) For triggering between Grid 2 and Grid 1, with Grid 2 positive with respect to grid 1
(c) Less than 40µs dependent on circuit conditions. With higher energy pulses the delay time can be considerably reduced
(d) With 100µs square pulses, negative with respect to Grid 2. Narrower pulses require a higher amplitude
