If you have an application, where you work with kilovolts and you need a suitable diode, we have a solution for you.
It´s not a quite common thing, to find a diode with a reverse voltage of more than 1000V in your “home-drawer stock”. But you develop a device, requiring a diode with a substantially higher reverse voltage and nothing suitable is by a hand …
The help is simple – use the DD1000 diode or in case of higher currents, choose a suitable type from the portfolio of High-voltage types from Diotec and send us your requirement. DD1000 features VRRM up to 10 000V, but in respect to its small dimensions and a construction, it´s suitable only for currents up to 20mA. This is sufficient for construction of various testers, voltage multipliers and similar. Should you require higher currents, many suitable types are available, which still maintain compact dimensions. For more powerful designs, it´s possible to use for example a cylinder type SI-A („hockey puck“) with a screw connection allowing for simple series connection (eventually also with RC cell).
