Rodan DK23  
Written by Accutron on 2017-02-20  

The Rodan DK23 is an uncommon Japanese single pulse counter with similar specifications to the ETL GC10D. Like the GC10D, the DK23 has three guides and 40 cathode positions, and is rated at 20KHz. Unlike the GC10D, the DK23 is a reliable device, and not susceptible to outgassing. The DK23 glows with a neon-like color, but its higher counting speed suggests the fill is a Penning mixture.
