Views Read Edit View history. The KT66 was very popular in European radios and audio amplifiers. M-OV ceased glass vacuum tube manufacturing in ; their old audio tube types became valuable collectibles. Eatasheet 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.
Here each single valve of the push pull pair is replaced with two valves connected in parallel. The KT66 had less rapid acceleration, longer electron paths, and almost no kink.
It is not uncommon to find these valves used in parallel push pull.

Owen Harries kf66 marketed by the Hivac Co. In the KT66 was advertised as the finest audio tube in the world. 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.
KT66 GEC Datasheet
The KT66 was essentially a 6L6 redesigned with a larger cathode and a shorter, fatter anode. 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. While these tubes have the same pinout and minimum tolerances required of a KT66 tube, they do not have the performance characteristics of a true kinkless tetrode KT66 tube.
This page was last edited on 6 Mayat The two tubes were nearly interchangeable, except that the KT66 was somewhat more rugged than the early metal 6L6.
Vacuum tubes Guitar amplification tubes Telecommunications-related introductions in The KT66 is a very well known audio output beam tetrode valve. Because this overall design eliminated the “tetrode kink” in the lower parts of the tetrode’s voltage-current characteristic curves dataeheet sometimes caused tetrode amplifiers to become unstableM-OV marketed this tube family as the “KT” series, standing for “kinkless tetrode”.

In the s the production used datassheet base caps and pre-WWII had the classic envelope shape. The El37 has a high value of gm of This design also datasheer interference of secondary emission electrons dislodged from the anode. By 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.

Type KT66 was first introduced in The beam tetrode design was also undertaken to avoid the patents which the giant Philips firm held on power pentodes in Europe. M-OV of Britain in Retrieved satasheet ” https: The EL37 is not a direct equivalent and neither is the 6L6.
KT66 – Wikipedia
The shape of eatasheet envelope is a mixture of the classic shape and the wide tube. 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.
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. Our exhibit is a post-WWII device, probably dating from the s. Languages Polski Edit links. From the s KT66 s lacked the internal carbon dust coating of the glass bulb.
