General Rectifier Diodes

What Are General Rectifier Diodes?

General rectifier diodes are diodes with PN junctions that rectifiy alternating currents with a commercial frequency (50Hz/60Hz) .
They are also used as diodes to protect the power supply from reverse connection or reverse current.


Generally, general rectifier diodes have higher reverse voltage and are suitable for rectification (AC to DC conversion) of commercial power supply.
