The 5U4 type of rectifier was made in several forms over its life time. This version has the modern glass base construction and a tubular envelope. It delivers 100 Watts of DC power, a reasonable size valve. It would be used for all types of medium power equipment.
The original 5Ug dates to 1938 and these rectifiers were used in the 1940s and 1950s. They were not specified for new equipment by the 1960s.
The glass tubular envelope has a maximum diameter of 36 mm and length excluding IO base pins, is 92 mm.
