Sylvania 5823 Trigger Tube  
Written by AnubisTTP on 2007-09-05  


The 5823 is an argon-filled trigger tube in a small 7 pin envelope. This tube is triggered by a 70 volt signal, and can switch a load of up to 200 volts. The 5823 is a cold cathode device; unlike some gas filled switching tubes, no filament voltage is required. This tube produces a purple discharge when subjected to a high voltage field.
