    Hi all!
    I want to design a circuit of power that have 2 output with +/- 300V. I want to use VACUUM DIODE but i can't begin because i don't have some reference circuits. Please help me if you have some circuits!! Share them to me!! Thank you very much

    I read it as needing a tube or valve rectifier, Google the same will show many.

    I know all about that. My Father-in-law was a RCAF Spitfire pilot with over 400 combat missions...

    I was fixing tube radios and building tube circuits back then

    Apparently I'm the new kid again. I was 7 years old when that was published.

    :eek::eek:. Be aware that working with those voltages is likely to entitle you to a Darwin Award!

    Or at least a candidate for one.
    The rule when working on those circuits live is, keep one hand in your pocket. ;)

    Same here...

    The only tube I ever used was a high voltage rectifier from a TV. It was a project I did with a friend while in high school.
    We were trying to do this:

    It never worked but at least I survived the experience. ;)

    a rectifyer from a tv would never handle such power, 15 to 20 kiloamperes? not even .01 kiloampere.

    1958- I was chief engineer of a seismographic oil exp. co & and my first daughter was one year old.
    Need two filament transformers with such as 80 or 5Y3, or isolated filament like 35Z5 ( must be a better choice but can't remember one ) but plaese do not connect 2 in series with resistor across AC line like in old hot chasis radios. For + connect a plate to transformer, output from cathode; for - connect cathode to same end of transformer, output from anode; other end of trans. to ground, for + & - half wave. rectefier power supply.

    I should have said that the tube (1B6?) was supposed to work with the output of an car ignition coil to charge a capacitor. The capacitor would then be discharged using a spark gap. I did not know about ignitrons and thyratrons at the time... I still have two 2.1uF, 10 KV capacitors. :eek:
