CV192 S-band magnetron

SIze The magnetron measures 202x68x37mm overall and weighs 1.2kg

This is a modified version of the CV64 for high power and for use in a pressurized box. See also CV5117.

Heater voltage 6V
Heater current 1.25A
Nominal operating frequency 3300MHz
Max anode dissipation 250W
Typical operating conditions
Peak anode voltage 21.5kV
Peak anode current 23A
Field strength 1880 gauss
Peak power output 225kW

The CV192 was used with the CV125 (see REL38C) trigatron in Modulator 158. The modulator generated a 500kW input to the CV192.
