Often used for reverse voltage protection, a staple for many power, DC to DC step up, and breadboard projects. A diode allows electrical current to flow in one direction -- from the anode to the cathode. Therefore, the voltage at the anode must be higher than at the cathode for a diode to conduct electrical current. In theory, when the voltage at the cathode is greater than the anode voltage, the diode will not conduct electrical current.
In practice, however, the diode conducts a small current under these circumstances. If the voltage differential becomes great enough, the current across the diode will increase and the diode will break down. Some diodes -- such as the 1N -- will break down at volts or less.
The 1N, however, can sustain a peak repetitive reverse voltage of volts. When the voltage at the anode is higher than the cathode voltage, the diode is said to be "forward-biased," since the electrical current is "moving forward.
The maximum that the diode can conduct at once is 30 amperes. However; if the diode is required to conduct that much current at once, the diode will fail in approximately 8. When the maximum allowable consistent current amount is flowing through the diode, the voltage differential between the anode and the cathode is 1.
Under these conditions, a 1Nx diode will dissipate 3 watts of power about half of which is waste heat. Categories Toggle navigation. Add to Cart. Add to Wish List. Compare this Product. Description Reviews 0. Your Name.
