Steve they are high speed gas triode switches designed for low 
microsecond/nanosecond switching in the high voltage, high current 
range.  Turn off, unfortunately, requires commutation of the circuit as 
with all thyratrons.

They are good for single pop pulse devices.  Normal TC operation with 
these are out!
