Extras ▼

 

The PY33 is an HT rectifier for television receivers. It operates directly from the mains input and with a series resistance of 25 Ohms it will feed a reservoir capacitor of 200 µF. The 300 mA heater was the standard for TV receivers from the 1960s.
The advantage of the PY33 was a voltage drop across the valve of only 10 Volts made possible by an ultra smooth cathode coating.
The stitched anode was made with four heat radiating flanges in an X configuration.
The wide glass tube envelope is 32 mm in diameter, and excluding the IO base pins, is 94 mm tall.
