  • 3-500ZG

    The Penta Laboratories 3-500ZG vacuum tube for sale is a high-mu power triode with a maximum plate dissipation rating of 500 watts. Cooling is by radiation and forced air through the base, along the envelope, and over the plate seal and radiator-type plate connector. This 3-500ZG replacement tube is intended for use as a zero-bias Class AB2 amplifier in radio-frequency or audio frequency applications. By eliminating the bias supply, zero grid bias operation greatly simplifies circuitry design. When operated in a cathode-driven circuit, a power gain of as much twenty times is achievable. Featuring a new design for longer life, the ceramic base provides better temperature control.

  • 3CX1500A7

    The Penta Laboratories PL8877/3CX1500A7 amplifier tube for sale is a rugged ceramic and metal power triode designed for use as cathode driven Class AB2 or Class B amplifier in audio or rf applications, including the VHF band. It can also be used as a cathode driven plate modulated Class C rf amplifier. As a linear amplifier, high power gain may be obtained without sacrifice of low intermodulation distortion characteristics.

    Low grid interception and high amplification factor combine to make the PL8877/3CX1500A7 drive power requirements exceptionally low for a tube of this power capacity.

  • 3CX3000A7

    The Penta 3CX3000A7 tube for sale is a high-mu metal/ceramic external anode power triode. Maximum plate dissipation for this tube is 4000 watts, and cooling is forced-air. At moderate plate voltages, relatively high power output can be obtained from the 3CX3000A7 tube for sale as an amplifier, oscillator, or modulator.

    For grounded-grid operation, excellent shielding between the input and output circuits is provided by the grid, handily terminated between the filament and plate terminals. A power gain of approximately 20 times can be obtained under operation with zero grid bias. The 3CX3000A7 amplifier tube for sale is designed using a rugged, lowinductance cylindrical filament stem, making it especially well suited for use in the linear filament tank circuit under VHF operation.
