The C4138 is 400V, 10A, Silicon NPN Triple Diffused Planar Transistor. This is High Voltage and High Speed Switchihg Transistor.

The NPN transistor is used to amplify or switch electronic signals and is widely used in many electronic circuits. It works by controlling the current flow between the collector and emitter terminals through the base terminal.

When a small current is applied to the base, it controls a much larger current between the collector and emitter, making the NPN transistor an effective amplifier or switch.
