The Z563C is RFT's counting only variant of the Z562S selector tube shown above. This tube has the same envelope and identical stats to the Z562S; a 5kHz maximum counting speed with a neon fill gas. Unlike the Z562S which has a 13 pin base, this tube has a standard 9 pin 'Magnoval' base, and uses commonly available sockets. Four of the pins on the base are stubs and not connected to anything, this tube has only a single output cathode.
