This item is a used XX1332 image intensifier tube, which has been passed "Grade B".
The XX1332 is the most common of the XX1330 series tubes manufactured by Philips (Photonis). The XX1330 series of tubes are characterised by the very large 50mm input and 40mm output windows, which offer significant optical advantages in certain situations. Arguably the best intensifier tube available for security, wildlife and astronomy applications; possessing high gain, high sensitivity, and excellent resolution. They provide imaging in conditions close to total darkness, often requiring no artificial illumination. In security applications this is a major advantage, since the use of any form of illumination can give away the presence of the user or equipment.
The XX1332 tube requires a 6V D.C. power source, consuming no more than 50mA. It will run for many hours on a set of "AA" alkaline batteries (not included).
A bare XX1332 intensifier tube.
We have supplied XX1332 tubes to professional and amateur astronomers, and many of the worlds leading meteor observation groups use XX1332 tubes.
Housings, lenses and adaptors are available for these tubes. (Search online for the ScotoVision "X32") With the addition of a suitable lens mount, the flat 50mm input window is compatible with most 35mm SLR camera lenses; which will usually illuminate the entire photocathode area. Spectacular results are obtained using a "fisheye" lens. Please check our other auctions or contact us with any questions.
