The RG12D60 is a German full wave rectifier and designed for military equipment and features a 12.6 Volt heater for mobile equipment. The rectified current is 60 mA maximum and the reservoir capacitor has a maximum value of 32μF.
The maker is TeKaDe or TKD and the valve is marked Wehrmacht Eigentum. So this was the property of the Wehrmacht or German unified armed forces.
This exhibit was donated by Liam O'Hainnin of the Farvis Fernseh Museum.
The two anodes are mounted in X formation one above the other on the common cathode. The lower anode has the fins pointing up and the top anode has the fins pointing down. Together they offer the greatest radiating area.
