Question aleph and bridge rectifier

hello all

i have rectifier
MUR 820G


hexfred 8A/600V

can i use them in bridge rectifier for an aleph 5 and for an aleph 3

for the aleph 5 i use toroidals from nuvotem 2x25v 300va in dual mono configuration

the output current of 25vac is 6A i want to use only one bridge rectifier per channel

iin first case you'll have 16A/400V Graetz and in second case 16A/1200V Graetz bridge

Inrush current at turn-on is the problem, not normal operational currents. You might want to consider something rated a bit higher in the current department.

when i watched the hexfred's datasheet

i can see

single pulse forward current =60A
maximum repetitive forward current =24A

inrush current at turn-on is it too high for this rectifiers ?

try the PSU Designer .
If yo use a big tranny and big capacitor bank, 60A single pulse can be to less. With a big toroid and huge caps the first charging impulse can go up to 300A. It can be necessary to use a small value, high power resistor (~0,2Ohm/10W) in series with the rectifier to reduce the incrush current.

I hope it helps.
Best Regards, Adam
