|Dumont 3ABP2 Two Gun Cathode Ray Tube
|Written by AnubisTTP on 2009-10-21
The 3ABP2 is a two-gun electrostatic deflection CRT, capable of projecting two beams at once. The tube's 3-inch screen is coated with a high persistence green phosphor. Though the separate guns share a common heater, each gun has it's own set of deflection plates and can be independently positioned. This feature makes it a favorite for homebrew electronics projects, as each beam can be dedicated to drawing a different portion of the screen.
