|Written by AnubisTTP on 2012-06-01
The Central Electric CVS-1 is a high voltage vacuum switch constructed into a large T-shaped envelope. This tube has three contacts; a fixed contact imbedded in glass, and two movable contacts that pass through sheet metal plates. The plates are flexible, allowing the movable contacts to opened and closed by an external force without breaking the vacuum. The tube's getter is located in one leg of the tube, attached to the base of the fixed contact.
