Description

This tube was designed by Henry K Huppert. He was an x-ray technician and later was employed by Moorhead Laboratories, where he worked on this tube and the 2 in 1 tube. He applied for a patent on the solenoid tube on 19th January 1923. Patent no 1564070 was granted to him on December 1st, 1925. No record exists that he assigned his invention to Moorhead Laboratories, but retained ownership of it. Many experimental tubes were made before a commercially successful tube made and several of these were submitted to Moorhead for approval. At least one tube had a copper coil control. The coil was a control element with the wire coil outside the plate.
