EL SEGUNDO, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--April 28, 2000--International Rectifier Corp. here today introduced a pair of compact single-phase bridge rectifiers that combine four individual diodes into a device for high-current power supply input circuits. The 25-amp GBPC25 and 35-amp GBPC35 are full-wave bridge devices for such applications as main power input rectification for DC-operated motors and DC power supplies.
"The new bridge rectifiers save production time and eliminate the need to assemble individual rectifiers into the bridge configuration," said Diego Giorio, technical marketing manager at IR. "Encapsulated in a rugged, high thermal-conductivity package, the GBPC25 and GBPC35 modules undergo voltage, current, temperature and humidity testing to ensure reliable performance in applications operating in extreme environments."
The GBPC25 and GBPC35 bridge rectifiers are rated up to 800 volts. IR said these rectifiers are made with glass-passivated diode chips to ensure maximum high temperature, reverse blocking (HTRB) stability.
Samples and production quantities are now available with pricing set at $2.40 each in 100-piece quantities.
