The NEW, RF Parts Company 3-500ZG and Taylor Tubes 3-500ZG tubes are the most rugged tubes of this type available. They are an improved version of the 3-500ZG offered by RF Parts Company, from 1993 to 2019. This newly revised version has had a failure rate of less than 0.05% during the three years that we have been testing, matching and selling them.
The 3-500ZG/3-500Z is a transmitting vacuum tube designed for use in high-power RF (radio frequency) applications, such as in amateur radio and commercial radio equipment.It is a vacuum tube designed for use in high-power RF (radio frequency) applications, such as in amateur radio and commercial radio equipment.
The tube uses a filament to heat up the cathode, which then emits electrons into the tube. The electrons are accelerated towards the anode, where they interact with the electric field to produce an amplified RF signal. The tube is capable of handling high voltages and currents, making it suitable for use in high-power RF applications.
The "G" in the 3-500ZG designation typically indicates a graphite anode, which provides improved thermal dissipation compared to metal anodes, allowing the tube to handle higher power levels. The "Z" in the part number indicates that the tube uses a ceramic/metal package for improved durability and reliability.
This tube is a Heavy Duty Graphite Anode version of the original Eimac 3-500Z, and it has a stronger Anode stem-support to add to the tube's ruggedness and stability. The Graphite Anode, Grid, and Filament are virtually the same as the Graphite version last offered by Eimac, and is interchangeable with this vastly improved transmit tube.
In addition, the newly designed ceramic pin base diffuses heat from the filament pins and extends the life of the socket.
The 3-500ZG/3-500Z tube is a high-quality and reliable transmitting tube that offers a good balance of power handling, frequency range, and efficiency. It is a popular choice for use in a variety of high-power RF applications where reliable and efficient power amplification is required.
