The AEG K1 like the Siemens Type A was developed as a telephone repeater triode. The K1 filament is in the form of a hairpin where the emission was at a maximum at the tip. The Type A has a broad filament supported at the sides and gave a more even distribution of emission. Both types date to 1917.
Below the valve can be seen a glass encased resistor.
