Abstract:

This report is designed to be a users manual describing the operating and measurement procedures required to conduct life test experiments on thermionic cathodes, within the RADC Cathode Life Test Facility. The Cathode Life Test Facility located in building 112, Cell 8, at Griffiss Air Force Base is designed for determining the degradation characteristics of cathode emitters. Through the use of this facility, Rome Air Development Center conducts life test measurements on various types of thermionic cathodes. The facility is presently equipped with 40 power supplies, 38 of which were manufactured by Cober Electronics and 2 which were designed by RADC. A Liebert Corporation AC aircooled R-22 unit is capable of maintaining constant temperature and relative humidity independent of weather conditions.
