JJ Overview JJ Electronic was formed in 1993 out of the privatization of Tesla company. It is located in the heart of Europe, in the Slovak Republic. With over 25 years of experience in development and manufacturing of electron tubes, our staff is ready to meet the demands of today`s HI-FI and music instruments markets. JJ ELECTRONIC manufactures tubes on proven Tesla equipment modernized with the latest technology. JJ Testing Every tube is electrically tested for parameters such as isolation characteristics, the electrode's current levels covering the entire operating curve, the condition of the vacuum, cathode emission capability, filament voltage and current levels. A microphonic test is performed on every tube. All tubes are then further burned-in for a period of 24 hours at the nominal specified operating voltage and current levels. Every month, a random sample is taken from the production to perform a life test of 5 000 hours at nominal operating conditions or 1000 hours at maximum specified levels.
