The UD2 is an audio output triode. Triotron describe it as a Super Power type at a time when a quarter of a Watt could seem loud.
The previous owner has marked this exhibit as being equivalent to the CV185 that was based on the Mullard PM202.
The first set of operating conditions relate to its introduction in 1927 and the second set to the improved version from 1933.
Triotron made a series of output valves with various power output ratings. ZD2 had the lowest power rising to SP2 with the greatest. The series was: ZD2, UD2, YD2 & SP2. A similar series existed for four volt valves.
The dome carries the identification, maker's name and Made in Austria.
Looking under the dark coating the horizontal anode can be seen.
The black envelope suggests an early version made by the Azide Process.
The balloon envelope is 45 mm in diameter, and excluding the B4 base pins is 87 mm tall.
References: 1043 & Advert Type UD2 was first introduced in 1927.
