12BA7 to 12BE6 or 12SA7

It would have been interesting to superimpose the transconductance curves for the various pentodes. Views Read Edit View history. This is nearly a factor of 4 datashest in output signal.

I looked for the same type of log scale plot that was used in the 12SK7 data sheet, in the data sheets of the other tubes, but could not find any. Quantity of Models at Radiomuseum.

Grid 4 screened this from the anode, and grid 5 was a suppressor grid to suppress secondary emission. This allowed Philco to use this valve in every line of radio throughout the s. They are pins 3 and 5 that in some sets are short circuited.

I tried it in a Emerson with very good success. Collection of Aldo Patriarca CH.

Pentagrid converter

Although not strictly a pentagrid in that it has more than five gridsthe octode eight-electrode nevertheless operates on the pentagrid principle. The 9 pin socket of the 12BA7 even fits very nicely inside bakelite plug. The valve would have been very inefficient, but, most importantly, the capacitive coupling between the two grids would have been very large.


The Americans appeared to be driven by the desire to produce a low-cost ‘every expense spared’ design which was to lead to the All American Five. List of vacuum tubes.

12BA7 to 12BE6 or 12SA7

Grid 1 acted as the oscillator grid in conjunction with grid 2 which acted as darasheet anode. Thus a pentagrid radio could easily be converted to a triode-hexode without any other circuit modifications.

Each grid was able to accept one of the incoming signals, and the non-linearity of the device produced the sum and difference frequencies.

Best regards, Jose Vigil ell. The invention of the tetrode demonstrated the idea of screening electrodes from each other by using additional earthed grounded grids at least, as far as the signal was concerned.

Another high transconductance pentagrid covnverter that would be useful for 6. It was not long before the triode and hexode structures 12ve6 placed in the same glass envelope – by no means a new idea.

122be6 device was generically referred to as a frequency changer or just mixer. This was done in such a way that Philips claimed that the oscillator electron beam and the mixer electron beams were separated as much as possible and thus the pulling effect was minimised.


It datashet an accurate calibrated dial and separate spread control. Collection of Peter Steffen CH. Since the oscillator circuit was more or less self-contained, good feedback datashret reliable oscillation across the frequency range was easy to obtain.

Capacitor types Ceramic resonator Crystal oscillator Inductor Parametron Relay reed relay mercury switch. Collection of Dirk Sponholz D. The UK manufacturers were initially unable to use this type of mixer because of datassheet BVA prohibition on multiple structures and indeed unwilling to use separate valves because of the levy.

This implies a sharper AGC action at the expense of tolerating smaller maximum signals at a given distortion. This was known as the autodyne mixer. Another disadvantage was that in spite of the presence of the screen grids, the electron beam, modulated by the oscillator electrodes, still had to pass through the signal grid, and coupling of the oscillator into the signal circuit was inevitable.

It is a charm to tune. This article includes a list of referencesbut its sources remain unclear because it has insufficient inline citations. Collection of Otto Frosinn D. Collection of Tomasz Szczesniak PL.
