Part Number: ESM740 ( = TR03-400T )
Function: 300V, 3A, Thyristor, SCR
The ESM740 brings the best compromise between a fast turn off time and a low gate trigger current for applications where fast switching and sensitive control is requested.
This is Silicon controlled rectifier. Thyristors are also known as silicon-controlled rectifiers (SCRs). They are characterized by their ability to conduct current in one direction once triggered by a gate signal and remain conducting until the current through them drops below a certain threshold or until the supply voltage is removed.
Thyristors find applications in various electrical and electronic systems, including motor control, power supply regulation, lighting control, and more. They are commonly used in high-power applications where solid-state switching and control of AC and DC power are required.
