The Set: Pete Deksnis's Site about the CT-100

Restoring a Vintage Color Television Set

RCA specified a line voltage of 115 Vac for the CT-100. With no circuit compensation for lower voltage drop across silicon rectifiers, the operatonal set draws over 400 watts, but less than the 475 watts specified by the label. However, with the CT-100 power factor of 0.78, the VA is 478 voltamps.
