Part Number: 3PDA60
Function: 3A 600V, Standard Recovery Diode
Package: Lead Type
The 3PDA60 is 3A, 600V, Standard Recovery Rectifier.
A recovery diode is a type of diode that is used in power electronics circuits to control the flyback voltage that is generated when a switch (such as a transistor or thyristor) is turned off. The flyback voltage is a high-frequency, high-voltage spike that occurs when the energy stored in the inductive load is rapidly dissipated as the switch is turned off.
The recovery diode is connected in parallel with the inductive load and is designed to conduct current as soon as the switch is turned off, effectively short-circuiting the flyback voltage and preventing it from damaging the switch or other components in the circuit. The diode will then cease conducting as the flyback voltage decays, allowing the switch to turn on again.
