The Erie 413 "Universal" HV filter Ceramicon® for TV solves a basic problem for the service man.
You stock one body type of Ceramicon. An assortment of terminals such as illustrated at the left enables you to replace anyone of a multitude of terminal combinations as found in receivers of different manufacturers.
