Union, N.J. -- America Semiconductor, LLC offers a series of 50-watt Zener diodes in a wide voltage range of 6.8 V to 200 V in a DO-5 case. The 50-W devices (part numbers: 1N3305 thru 1N3350) provide voltage regulation protection in a variety of applications including alternative energy, oil drilling, power grid, welding, HVAC, and transportation.
Offered in a ruggedized, hermetically sealed DO-5 package, the Zener diodes are precision manufactured to withstand adverse operating conditions such as shock and vibration, and are constructed to promote good clamping ability, said American Semiconductor. Features include solderable terminals, corrosion resistant external surfaces, and a cavity-free glass-passivated junction to enhance the reverse voltage resistance and reduce leakage.
The Zener diodes with a sharp knee point, low noise and low dynamic impedance, may be ordered in normal or reverse polarity. Polarity is indicated by the position of the Zener symbol on the part. They are supplied in 46 voltages ranging from 6.8 V to 200 V. The operating temperature range is -65° C to +175° C. Additional specifications include low forward voltage (VF max = 1.5 V) and 50 watts power derating (0.5 W/°C above 75° C).
