Default Big tube - what is it?

I have a huge tube warning for X-rays, 300 mm high, 80 mm diameter. The tube is in it's original box. Can anyone tell me something?

Think of it as a very robust thyristor.

It is a switch.

The hydrogen gas allows ionization to occur easier.

It is non linear.

It is used for things like pulsed radar. Also, as a crowbar, for cases when relays cannot open fast enough, this is triggered to shunt the voltage.

It remains latched till the current goes below a holding current.

It's like an SCR.

It has x-ray warnings because the voltage it can handle is sufficient that the electrons cause emission when they hit the anode..

Cheers, John
