RF Power Tubes, the heart beating inside CO2 Lasers
To keep your Trumpf®* lasers running at peak performance, we recommend using the original Thales tube available from Richardson Electronics and its service partners.
RF Power Tubes: Do you have good connections?
RF Power Tubes are the heart of a CO2 laser and having a clean, undamaged socket is essential for the health of the tube. When you replace the RF tube, always inspect the condition of the socket. A bad socket will result in a shorter life of the RF tube.
