Zp 8mm Male Thread Stud Mount Silicon Rectifier Diode 1200v Zp-20a



ZP 8mm Male Thread Stud Mount Silicon Rectifier Diode 1200V ZP-20A

  • Diode Type: The ZP-20A is a silicon rectifier diode. Silicon rectifier diodes are widely used for their high efficiency in converting alternating current (AC) into direct current (DC) in power supply and rectification applications.
  • Voltage Rating: This diode has a voltage rating of 1200V. This means it can handle a maximum reverse voltage of 1200 volts without breaking down.
  • Current Rating: The “20A” in the part number indicates a current rating of 20 amperes. This specifies the maximum continuous forward current that the diode can handle without overheating or failing.
  • Mounting Type: The diode is designed for stud mounting and features an 8mm male thread. This makes it suitable for secure and stable attachment to a circuit board or heat sink.
  • Package: The diode is likely enclosed in a package or housing that provides protection and heat dissipation. The specific package design may vary, but it typically has a stud at one end for mounting.
  • Applications: Diodes like the ZP-20A are commonly used in power supply circuits, rectification circuits, and voltage regulation circuits. They are also utilized in various industrial and electronic applications where efficient conversion of AC to DC is required.
  • Operating Temperature: The datasheet for this diode should provide information about its recommended operating temperature range. Operating the diode within this range ensures reliable performance and longevity.
  • Polarity: Like all diodes, the ZP-20A has polarity. It allows current to flow in one direction (forward bias) while blocking it in the other direction (reverse bias). Proper orientation is crucial for its function.
  • Reverse Recovery Time: Diodes typically have a reverse recovery time, which is the time it takes for the diode to switch from the conducting state to the blocking state when the voltage polarity is reversed. The datasheet should provide this information.
