Sensibly equivalent¶ to:
This exhibit is essentially the service equivalent of the GZ32, a medium power full wave rectifier for general purpose use. It probably would have been used in audio power amplifiers or modest radio transmitters.
The maximum reservoir capacitor was 60 µF and the minimum series resistance to limit current was 150 Ohms.
The classic envelope is 42 mm in diameter, and excluding the IO base pins, is 94 mm tall.
