Electron tube database, 1958--1961

Updated 5 December, 2003

This database contains technical specifications on some 2000+ electron tubes, mainly obscure and hard-to-find devices, mainly American JEDEC numbers. The technical data is contained in the high-resolution color scans of over 20 original catalogs from 1958 to 1963, and nested HTML indices of all the devices in the catalogs.

Note that devices considered "receiving tubes", eg. those found in radios and TVs will not be found here. Data on those is pretty easy to find. The most common book for receiving tubes is the "RCA Receiving Tube Manual RC-19", (where "19" is a recent (sic) revision). Try Fair Radio Supply or a Google search.

This data is in constant (if slow-moving) flux, so be sure to look in the WPS Technology area for new entries, such as Application Notes.

Thanks to David Forbes for providing lots of Burroughs and National NIXIE data, including scanning and indexing them. If you see any errors, contact me, not David.

And here is some additional Nixie display tube data that doesn't fit with the database requirements for the rest of the data; it includes devices B4081, 7977, 7009, B4021, B6844A, 8037, B5031, B5092, 7153, B6033, B6091, B8091, B7904, 5870S, 5870ST, 5870SF, 5870TF, 5870L.

Tube/device numbering isn't random, at least some of the fields in a part number contain meaning. Check out Duncan's Amp Pages for a breakdown. It's a great page.


READ AND HEED THESE WARNINGS. I WILL NOT BE POLITE IF YOU EMAIL ME ABOUT THESE!

Otherwise I don't mind chatting about the data, errors, suggestions, related questions, etc... just don't ask me if I know where you can get some particular tube!



Due to the large number of devices it was not possible to check each entry for errors. If you find an error please inform me tomj /at/ wps . com (Tom Jennings). Please be specific as you can, eg.: "The index for 6AU6 says data is on page 4 and 5 of catalog BLATZ, but it's really on pages 6 and 7." And thanks to the many people who took the time to write in with error reports, I really appreciate it (even if it did take me five months to incorporate the last batch...)
