ELECTRONIC SCANNING

Scanning in which the axis of the beam is moved, relative to the antenna
axis, in a desired pattern [18].


ELECTRONIC SWITCH

A circuit that causes a start-and-stop switching action by electronic means
[13].


ELECTRONIC TUNING

In a reflex klystron, changing the frequency and output power of the tube by
altering the repeller voltage [11].


ELECTRONIC-EQUIPMENT DEHYDRATOR

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 [18].


ELECTRONICS DRY-AIR BRANCH

A common line for providing dry air to various electronic equipment, such as search radar, fire-control radar, and repeaters [18].


ELECTROSTATIC

Pertaining to electricity at rest, such as charges on an object (static electricity) [1].

ELECTROSTATIC DEFLECTION

The method of deflecting an electron beam by passing it between parallel charged plates mounted inside a cathode-ray tube [6].


ELECTROSTATIC FIELD

The field of influence between two differently charged bodies [2].

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 [3].


ELECTROSTATIC STRESS

The force exerted on an insulator by the voltage in a conductor [4].
