Selenium Rectifiers have been superseded in most applications by silicon devices, because of silicon's higher current and temperature ratings. However, there is still a place for selenium in low voltage rectifiers where their combination of forward over current toughness and reverse transient voltage capability may be useful.
As well as new rectifiers, GD Rectifiers has design or build data for old Westcode, International Rectifier, STC, Semikron and Automat selenium rectifier designs which enables them to provide replacements for most types. If customers do not have data on the old rectifier, then GD Rectifiers can take a sample (in a working condition or not) and replicate it.
