Extras ▼

 

The CV310 is described as a Strobotron and looks similar to the GN10 thyratron. The prototype was the NHP1.
Seen from the anode end, the long discharge path can be seen.
Neon filled 'Strobotron' tubes produced short duration high intensity light flashes from the discharge column. When used in a parabolic reflector the flash would clearly be visible in daylight.
The wide glass tube envelope is 28 mm in diameter and, excluding the UX4 base pins, is 93 mm tall.
Reference: Datasheet. Type CV310 was first introduced in 1950.
