Hello, readers welcome to the new tutorial. Here we will have a detailed look at the Introduction to FR102 Diode. FR102 is a diode that is part of the FR10x series of didoes. Basically, the diode is a rectifier component that is used in projects for ac to dc conversion. Two types of rectifiers are used in electronic half-wave and full-wave rectifiers. It has two pins anode and a cathode.
Anode is the positive pin and the cathode is the negative pin. The structure of the diode is such that tip of a triangle with a line exists on top of the cathode. The current flow from the anode to the cathode. FR102 diode is similar to the one-way electric valve. In this post, we will discuss the working, features applications and some related parameters. So let’s get started.
Introduction to FR102 Diode
- FR102 is part of the diode FR10x series, The components of this series are FR103, FR104, FR105, FR106, and FR107.
- FR102 comes in DO-41 packaging with the one-ampere current. its main specifications are a high switching speed of about nanoseconds, and a high forward surge curent value.
- It provides less power loss, reliable in projects also has good efficiency.
- This diode is like other diodes but has different peak repetitive reverse voltage, dc blocking voltage and RMS reverse voltage.
- it can be replaced with a diode for a circuit having fifty volts supply. But for a circuit that has 100 volts supply, just FR101 can be replaced not any other.
- So before using a diode from the FR10x series must check the circuit voltage requirements and need then use,
- Must be a high value of Peak repetitive reserves voltage chosen than the load needed. Let’s assume that load needs 120 volts then not use FR102 for this project but use higher diodes from the FR10x series
