<< 2A3/n 2A3/c 2A3/SE Vacuum Tube

Classification- Dome-type or Aubergine-type bulb of glass, a white ceramic base with four-prong bayonet golden pins, oxide coated filamentary, mesh plate or carbon plate triode.

Application -Audio frequency amplifier where power outputs of approximately 3.5 watts or less is required at relatively low plate voltages.

Dimensions -Dimensions, outline diagrams of the tube and bases, and the arrangement of electrode connections to the base terminals are shown in Figures 1, 2 and 3.

*Alternating-current filament supply or Direct-current filament supply.
**Alternating-current filament supply is used. The grid and plate returns should be connected to a center tap on the secondary of the filament transformer.
Direct-current filament supply is used. The grid and platter returns are connected to the negative end of the filament.
