CPI 4CM2500KG

The 4CM2500KG/X-2274 is a ceramic/metal, water vapor cooled power tetrode designed for very
high powered RF service. The 4CM2500KG has
a high density thoriated tungsten mesh filament
mounted on water-cooled supports. Pyrolytic
graphite control and screen grids are used to provide the necessary stability and power dissipation
rating. The maximum anode dissipation rating
is 2500 kilowatts steady state. Large diameter
coaxial terminals are used for the control grid and
the RF cathode terminals. Filament power and
filament support cooling water connections are
made through two special connectors. Anode
cooling water connectors are made with available
hand tightened connectors.
