HU8525

 
    
Extras ▼

 

The HU8525 is a current stabiliser or Barretter. Traditionally the barretter was used to keep heater chain current constant over a range of fluctuations in mains voltage. The fine coiled wire is normally iron and the envelope is hydrogen filled.
See also H85-255/80 for a very similar Barretter.
The wire from the top of the central glass support to the top pip is for support and does not emerge from the glass.

The wide glass tube envelope is 38 mm in diameter, and excluding the B4 base pins is 158 mm tall.
