The 3A/167M is an indirectly heated triode of very high mutual conductance which has been developed for use in the output stages of wide band amplifiers, and for cascade low noise amplifiers.

It is an electrical equivalent of the USA type 437A

            Maximum direct anode dissipation                     6.5                    W



Typical Operating Conditions


           *            Direct anode voltage                                         150                   V


            Direct anode current                                          40                     mA


           †Direct grid supply voltage                                 +9                    V


           †Cathode resistor                                                           262                   Ω


            Equivalent noise resistance                                65                     Ω


            Mutual conductance                                          47                     mA/V



* Referred to cathode                           



 † It is recommended that the required grid bias to be obtained in this manner.

The actual voltage between grid and cathode is equal to the difference between the grid supply voltage and the voltage developed across the cathode resistor when cathode current is flowing.
