C&H Technology specializes in high current Diode Bridge Rectifiers, single and Three Phase Diode Bridge Rectifiers. Typical applications for these input rectifier bridges are: welding, generator, battery charger, AC motor drive, and traction markets. Air and water cooled Bridge Rectifier assemblies up to 20,000 amps.
A diode bridge or bridge rectifier is an arrangement of four diodes in a bridge configuration that provides the same polarity of output voltage for either polarity of input voltage. When used in its most common application, for conversion of alternating current (AC) input into direct current (DC) output, it is known as a bridge rectifier. A bridge rectifier provides full-wave rectification from a two-wire AC input, resulting in lower cost and weight as compared to a center-tapped transformer design.
