ETL GC10D Dekatron Tube  
Written by AnubisTTP on 2008-01-05  


The GC10D is a single pulse tube with three guides and forty cathode positions. The maximum counting speed is rated at 20kHz, but only when fed with a sine wave input pulse. When driven with a square wave, the maximum speed is only 10kHz. This is one of the most failure-prone dekatrons ever built; the tube's fill gas is over seventy percent helium, and is almost always absent by the time the tube falls into the hands of a collector.
