Abstract:

Further progress was made in the environmental test program. The tube is supported within the vibration test mount by end-to-end compression. With the ball and socket seat, a compression force of about 110 elastic limit of the tube envelope is used. Two tubes have been vibrated in the x and y axes with full voltages applied with no ill effects on subsequent performance. These tubes were cycled at 10G between 400 and 2000 cycles for two hours on each of the x and y axes. Additional electrical tests were made, and the tubes tested appeared to meet requirements for resolution, brightness, viewing time, erasing time, writing speed, gray scale, and phosphor. Author
