CPI 3CX15

The 3CX15,000A3 is a medium-mu power triode
designed for use as a power oscillator in industrial
radio frequency heating applications. It is also
recommended for use as a conventional plate
modulated amplifier, or as a linear amplifier. The
one kilowatt filament and rugged 500 watt grid
structure make this tube especially suitable for
heavy duty service.
