CV1071 MARCONI OSRAM CV1071 MILITARY U52 BROWN BASE 1955 PRODUCTION
Here we have a single CV1071, a military specification U52 DIRECTLY HEATED TAPE FILAMENT rectifier manufactured by Marconi Osram at their Hammersmith Brook Green factory and carrying the cartouche code for August 1955.
This valve shows excellent bright getter and has the inverted getter pan situated down by the glass pinch, the valve base is very slightly loose on the envelope, however, more importantly it tests as EXCELLENT using my Avo VCM163 valve tester. This exquisite device carries good white print, the classic U52 envelope shape and the trademark rounded brown low loss micanol base - simply super. The pobverse of the vale carries a large Marconi blue and white decal.
Device test data: Ia = 120.0mA for both diode sections.
Device specification 120mA delivery for both diode sections. So you can see we have 100% emission from this venerable beauty.
