The GZ30 full wave rectifier was designed for larger domestic equipment and audio amplifiers. The maximum reservoir capacitor was 50 µF and the minimum effective series resistance had to be 380 Ohms. The maximum peak inverse voltage was 1.4 kV.
Zaerix was the brand name of Z&I Aero Services who were suppliers of specialist and foreign sourced spares in the 1960s and 1970s. Thanks to Alf Parker for the company information.
The wide glass (GT) envelope is 28 mm in diameter and, excluding the IO base pins, is 63 mm tall.
