Note: All of the connecting cables used with our Human and Bike Power Generators also use the Full Wave Bridge Kit. We build these into an in-line, aluminum box.
Description: The stock no. 272125 full wave rectifier bridge kit has two primary purposes:
- To act as a reverse-current blocking diode for battery charging directly from a permanent magnet DC generator, and
- To permit the DC generator to rotate in either direction while providing a constant polarity output.
This device can also be used to rectify an ac input current into dc
Specifications: 110 x 65 mm, 30 mm high. Weight: 110 g
Electrical capacity - 35 amperes maximum current, 200 volts maximum voltage
Connect the generator wires to the two screw-down terminals marked "FROM GENERATOR". Connect the battery or other output load to the two terminals marked "TO LOAD". Attach the mounting plate to a suitable heat sink (aluminium is a good choice) using the four holes in the corners if the plate, preferably using silicone heat transfer compound to reduce the thermal resistance.
