Extras ▼

 

Mullard describe the EF40 as a voltage amplifying pentode, primarily intended for use in high gain RC coupled AF voltage amplifier stages.
The interesting thing about this exhibit is the BBC valve section sticker. IT shows the valve being tested in February and October 1953.
The thin glass tube envelope is 20 mm in diameter and, excluding the B8A base pins, is 52 mm tall.
References: Datasheet & 1040. Type EF40 was first introduced in 1948.
