{Collins} Fw: Tube set up fro 572B.............

If the tube is listed on that particular tester's tube data sheet, I would assume it had adequate capability. That said, it probably is NOT a good idea to lock down the test key.

On mine, the fuse lamp glows rather brightly when testing either 811-A's or 572B's. For that matter, it is also bright for 6146's and 5U4's as well.

I was under the impression that the 572B and the 811-A had the same filament ratings.

Yes, all data sheets I can find show 6.3 volts at 4 amps.

The concern is whether any particular tube tester can happily deliver 4 amps at 6.3 volts.
