Cerberus Männedorf Swiss GR16: Cold Cathode Tubes were the world specialty of two Swiss Companies. There are gas filled tubes (Diodes) with an ignition electrode. Thyratrons. If a minimal voltage is applied to the ignition electrode (nanoA) then the tube ignites (the gas inside ionizes) allowing more current to flow. The ignition condition is indicated by glowing neon gas. The life span of the Tube is about 25,000 hours.
