The 7D5 is an output pentode designed for audio amplification in radio receivers. The operating values given are for single ended use with an anode load of 7,000 Ohms.
If a pair are used as an audio amplifier in push pull class A, 10.5 Watts are possible with 3% distortion.
The 7D5 has a 13 Volt 0.315 Amp heater and is fitted with a B7 base cap but electrically is identical to the 6F6G that has a 6.3 Volt 700 mA heater and is fitted with an IO base cap.
The construction is a pentode with three wire grids. The slip-coated heater looks to be passed through the cathode tube three times making six elements in total.
The classic envelope is 45 mm in diameter and excluding the B7 base pins the length is 100 mm.
