Scanning in which the axis of the beam is moved, relative to the antenna
axis, in a desired pattern .
A circuit that causes a start-and-stop switching action by electronic means
In a reflex klystron, changing the frequency and output power of the tube by
altering the repeller voltage .
A device that provides an alternate dry-air input in the event of failure of the central dry-air system. It may include a compressor .
ELECTRONICS DRY-AIR BRANCH
A common line for providing dry air to various electronic equipment, such as search radar, fire-control radar, and repeaters .
Pertaining to electricity at rest, such as charges on an object (static electricity) .
The method of deflecting an electron beam by passing it between parallel charged plates mounted inside a cathode-ray tube .
The field of influence between two differently charged bodies .
ELECTROSTATIC METER MOVEMENT
A meter movement that uses the electrostatic repulsion of two sets of charged plates (one fixed and the other movable). This meter movement reacts to voltage rather than to current and is used to measure high voltage .
The force exerted on an insulator by the voltage in a conductor .
