Default MBR4060PT dual schottky rectifier as bridge rect.

I got a dozen or so of these for free and wanted to check that they would be a good choice to use two of them and form a bridge rectifier as part of a DC power supply.


60V max reverse & 40A average rectified forward current. Should be enough ;-)

Can't answer that till you show us the circuite you intend to use them in transformer type, voltage ect.

Of course, sorry about that. Its a capacitance multiplier supply that my son wants to use for a JLH 2005 Class-A amp.


Transformer is dual secondary 32-0-32 400VA
C1 & C2 in that schematic will be dual 10,000 uF 75VDC - 20,000 uF per rail.

Don't think so. The problem is the 60v reverse breakdown rating.

Take a look at just the + cap. The 32 v ac will charge the cap
to about +42v during the half cycle it's charging but on the other
half cycle the diode will see 42v+ from the cap and - 42v from
the transformer for about 84v across it this excedes the 60v rating.

Thanks Woody,

I'll pick up some MBR20200CT's I think
