Default Diode bridge rectifier

Can you anyone help me to find diode bridge rectifier like on that picture:

In most cases you can find it at vintage audio amplifiers.

There are lots of bridge rectifiers that look like that (RS606) accept I have never seen one that has the AC inputs on the outside of the package , everyone i have seen has the AC inputs on the two inside pins and the DC on the outside pins , I suppose if you need one with the AC on the outside pins you can insulate the pins with heatshrink and then bend them into the position you need ......

cheers

The Picture in your post has the AC on the inside pins but you labeled them differently .....

Marks what I have written is what I need, so I need the model with AC terminals not at the middle pins, AC terminals should be at the first and fourth pin.

Why not make a small circuit out of discrete diodes ?

Or use some insulating tubing and bend the innies out and the outties in.

Or rotate the thing 90 degrees and bend the legs foreward and backward to fit the holes.

It is just a rectifier, doesn;t matter what it looks like.

Hi,

In and out pins don't make any difference, for a bridge they are reversible.

rgds, sreten.

Wrong, draw it out.

The only terminals that can be switched are the two AC inputs...those two can be switched with each other...all others NOT

Like me and Enzo suggested , if you need AC on the outside pins just insuleate the pins with heatshrink and bend them into the desired position , Rectifiers like the RS606 have long and very thick pins so it is easy to bend the pins into any position and not worry about them breaking because of vibration fatigue .....

I also second "KatieandDad" suggestion in just making a bridge out of diodes .... When i build my Guitar tube preamp I needed a high voltage inline bridge rectifier but didn"t have one so I used 4 Diodes soldered it together P2P and used that as my diode bridge and it works well ......

Cheers
