The 1D-E14 is a small low voltage tuning eye tube intended for use in portable battery powered radios. Manufactured by Toyo Musen, the 1D-E14 has a narrow band of phosphor which varies in width based on a control signal. This tube is quite small for a tuning eye tube, and has an envelope length of approximately 42mm. Voltage requirements are also very low, as would befit a battery radio tube... in the thumbnail photo, the target voltage is 9 volts and the filament voltage is 1.4 volts. Unlike most tuning eyes, this tube has flying leads instead of rigid pins, and is designed to be permanently soldered into place.
