A bridge rectifier is an electronic component used to convert alternating current (AC) into direct current (DC). It is commonly used in power supply circuits to rectify AC voltage into a pulsating DC voltage.
When provided with an AC input voltage, a bridge rectifier utilizes a configuration of diodes to convert the input waveform into a unidirectional output waveform. The diodes within the bridge rectifier conduct current in alternate half-cycles of the input AC waveform, effectively rectifying it.
The Part Number is S4VB10.
The function of this semiconductor is Silicon Rectifier Diode (Bridge).
The manufacturer of this part is Shindengen Electric.

The S4VB10 is Bridge type 4A, 100V, Rectifier. These specifications indicate that the bridge rectifier is capable of handling a maximum voltage of 100 volts and a maximum current of 4 amperes.
t’s important to ensure that the bridge rectifier is selected to have a voltage rating higher than the expected maximum voltage and a current rating higher than the expected maximum current in the application. This provides a safety margin and helps prevent the rectifier from being overloaded.
Additionally, it’s worth noting that the power dissipation of the bridge rectifier should be considered to ensure it can handle the power requirements of the circuit. Power dissipation is the product of voltage and current, so in this case, it would be 100V * 4A = 400 watts. Therefore, a bridge rectifier with an appropriate power rating, such as one with a power rating higher than 400 watts, should be selected for the application to ensure proper operation and reliability.
