This rectifier is filament only (no cathode). It's meant for high current applications. Can this be used as a sub for 5AR4/GZ34 ?
Thanks

Maybe; the 5U4 heater draws 3A, compared to 2A of the 5AR4.
So it's best to check the particular PT's 5V winding current rating.

You're correct Mike and the 5AU4 draws even more current.
