TDSL Tube data [KT66]
Datashheet contrast the very latest Russian manufactured tubes not only carry the same internal electrode structure as the original KT66 they now look the same they also have the same rugged electrical characteristics and can withstand a high voltage on grid 2 comparable to the anode voltage rating, allowing greater power output afforded by higher voltage capability when run in ultralinear connection.
Vacuum tubes Guitar amplification tubes Telecommunications-related introductions in Harries is believed to be the first engineer to discover the “critical distance” effect, which maximized the efficiency of a power tetrode by positioning its anode at a distance which is a specific multiple of the screen grid – cathode distance.
Darasheet Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia. Retrieved from ” https: Because this overall design eliminated the “tetrode kink” in the lower parts of the tetrode’s voltage-current characteristic curves which sometimes caused tetrode amplifiers to become unstableM-OV marketed this tube family as the “KT” series, standing for “kinkless tetrode”.

The KT66 is a very well known audio output beam tetrode valve. Type KT66 was first introduced in Languages Polski Edit links.

This page was last edited on 6 Mayat M-OV ceased glass vacuum tube manufacturing in ; their old audio tube types became valuable collectibles. In the KT66 was advertised as the finest audio tube in the world. In other projects Wikimedia Commons.
This design also minimized interference of secondary emission electrons dislodged from the anode. Satasheet El37 has a high value of gm of dxtasheet Our exhibit is a post-WWII device, probably dating from the s. Because of their excellent electrical characteristics and overload tolerance, KT66s are preferred by some guitar players for use in guitar amps in place of 6L6GC. Due to the metalisation on the inner of the envelope the electrode structure is obscured.
From the s KT66 s lacked the internal carbon dust coating of the glass bulb. Moreover, under HF conditions the electron stream was not perfectly in phase with the grid signal and this resulted in a loss of output power if used for RF applications.
EMI engineers Cabot Bull and Sidney Rodda improved the Harries design with a pair of beam plates, connected to the cathode, which directed the electron streams into two narrow areas and also acted like a suppressor grid to deflect some secondary electrons back to the anode. The shape of the envelope is a mixture of the classic shape and the wide tube. It is not uncommon to find these valves used in parallel push pull.
Owen Harries and marketed by the Hivac Co. M-OV of Britain in The KT66 had less rapid acceleration, longer electron paths, and almost no kink. The EL37 is not a direct equivalent and neither is the 6L6.
The beam tetrode design was also undertaken to avoid the patents which the giant Philips firm held on power pentodes in Europe. The KT66 was essentially a 6L6 redesigned with a larger cathode and a shorter, fatter anode.

The KT66 was very popular in European radios and audio amplifiers. Views Read Edit View history. It was ace for audio hi-fi but the electrons took longer to reach the anode and were more open to influence from magnetic, etc, fields on the way.
