CV2029 voltage stabiliser

Size This valve measures 75x30mm overall and has 8 leads.

The valve is a modified CV395. The construction of the valve base appears to be a standard loctal type, but the leads come through the base rather than being soldered onto existing pins. The CV specs suggest the valve is constructed by welding leads to the pins but this is not the case in this example.

(data is from CV395)

Max anode takeover voltage 170V
Max anode current 45mA
Min anode current 5mA
Mean voltage drop at 25mA 150V
Max priming anode current 1mA
