**CHOOSING THE PROPER REPLACEMENT MAGNETRON TUBE**
1. Determine the size by measuring across the top of the Magnetron, excluding the mounting tabs.
(A slightly larger Magnetron can be used if adequate space is available)
Standard: 80mm x 93mm (3 5/32" x 3 5/8") Approx.
Compact: 80mm x 80mm (3 5/32" x 3 5/32") Approx.
Subcompact: 73mm x70mm (2 ¾" x 2 ¾") Approx.
"Larger dimension" magnetron tubes are generally found in commercial and industrial applications.
2.Determine the configuration.
"E" configuration: mounting tabs opposite vents and airflow
"H" configuration: mounting tabs and vents and filament leads all on the same side.
Commonly called the "in line" style. (I.L.)
"J" configuration: mounting tabs and vents opposite filament leads.
"K" configuration: mounting tabs and filament leads opposite vents.
Standard: 30mm (1 3/16") approx.
Low Profile: 20mm (3/4") approx.
4. Voltage rating: determine by "2M" numbers on the Magnetron label.
