  • Patent number: 6455996
    Abstract: In a convergence correction device according to the present invention and a cathode-ray tube using such convergence correction device, a core having wound thereat a vertical correction coil (M/Dv) to which a vertical deflection current is applied is used while such core is being saturated. Also, such core might be made of a material having a characteristic in which a changed amount of a reactance per deflection velocity becomes less than a predetermined value. The above-mentioned predetermined value is less than 2000 &mgr;H/msec, for example. Thus, a convergence pattern, which is difficult to correct at the intermediate portions of upper and lower separated screens of a cathode-ray tube according to the related art, may be satisfactorily corrected without producing bright and dark stripes on the screen of the cathode-ray tube.

  • Patent number: 6060824
    Abstract: A pair of magnetic bodies extending in an axial direction of a color cathode ray tube are arranged apart from each other in a direction perpendicular to the axial direction so as to shield an external magnetic field acting on three electron beams forming a row in the direction perpendicular to the axial direction. A ring-like 6-pole magnet plate disposed in a plane perpendicular to the axial direction is arranged in substantially a central region in a longitudinal direction of the magnetic bodies. These 6-pole magnet plate and magnetic bodies arranged in the particular positional relationship generate a magnetic field distributed to have a plurality of peaks of intensity on the orbit of the central beam. The magnetic field runs on the orbit of the central beam toward one magnetic body around one of the peaks, and runs toward the other magnetic body around the adjacent peak.

  • Patent number: 5465026
    Abstract: A deflection yoke includes a first core portion and a core extension portion. The core extension portion is located in the rear of the yoke closer to the beam entrance region. To adjust the yoke for the particular cathode ray tube on which it is mounted, the position of the yoke is adjusted for obtaining acceptable image geometry. Then, the core extension is moved with respect to the first core portion in a direction perpendicular to the longitudinal axis of the tube to obtain convergence symmetry while the position of the first core portion remains the same. In this way, convergence symmetry adjustment is accomplished separately from image geometry adjustment.

  • Patent number: 5382875
    Abstract: A stray magnetic field suppression system for use in a CRT image display suppresses a stray magnetic field that emanates from the horizontal deflection coil of a beam-deflecting yoke which is energized by sawtooth waveform pulses from a horizontal oscillator. The system comprises two series-connected magnetic coil assemblies in conjunction with a capacitor and activated by the sawtooth waveform pulses. The capacitor serves to integrate the pulses, enabling the suppression system to form an effective field for suppressing a stray magnetic field when the magnetic coil assemblies are interposed in the path of the stray magnetic field on opposite sides of the yoke.

  • Patent number: 4814858
    Abstract: Disclosed are a method of measuring the color purity of a color display having phosphors in the shape of dots and an apparatus therefor which are capable of quantitatively measuring the state of the phosphors being irradiated with electron beams with high accuracy. Magnetic field is applied to the color display tube from the outside so as to forcibly move an electron beam deflectively along a straight line and a photograph of the phosphor in this state is taken so as to obtain the configuration (the center position, and the radius or the diameter) of the phosphor from the image of the phosphor. After the two center positions of the electron beams in the positive and negative directions of the external magnetic field are then obtained, the center position of the electron beam under no excitation is obtained as the interior division point.

  • Patent number: 4296359
    Abstract: To correct the effects of an in-line electron gun mount rotation error on a kinescope display screen, initially the horizontal deflection axis of the yoke is aligned with the actual axis of alignment of the electron guns. The resultant rotated raster is then rotated into alignment with the kinescope major and minor axes through the use of a magnetic field disposed orthogonal to the yoke deflection fields. The magnitude of the field is selected to effect the desired magnitude of raster rotation, while the polarity of the field is selected to effect the desired direction of raster rotation. In one embodiment, a coil of wire placed to abut the kinescope funnel in front of the deflection yoke and powered by a variable DC voltage source provides the desired magnetic field. In another embodiment, a permanent magnet ring takes the place of the coil -DC source combination.
