W series of ultrafast diodes for welding applications
ST's W series of ultrafast STTH rectifiers
have been designed to offer the perfect trade-off between a low forward voltage (V
) and a short reverse recovery time (t
), leveraging a long experience with market leaders in the welding industry. The reduced conduction in the diodes significantly reduces power losses in the high-power secondary rectification stage. Using platinum doping, the new W series of high-current diodes, from 20 to 200 A, are ideal for the latest requirements in welding equipment.
