this is my first homemade (better looking) component
<p>For this Bridge Rectifier what input AC voltage could it bare?<br>I'm a newbie and was looking for 1N4001 and landed on this page.</p><p>Thanks for the turorial.</p>
<p>As it is made of 1n4007 diodes it should handle up to 1A at 1000 volts :-)</p>
<p>Thank you for prompt reply.</p><p>Found a data sheet saying 1N4003 is capable of handling 200v.</p><p>So for from regular Home AC power in india its 220~230v, if I use 4x1N4007, what would be the output in Volt &amp; Amp(don't know how much the power line Amps)?</p>
Your end product looks nice, but I am always nervous about heat when soldering diode leads, even when I am using a heat sink to protect the diodes. Soldering close to the body of the diodes, even with a low wattage soldering iron, puts a lot of heat very close to the insides of the diodes.
+1<br> <br> Plus: If you solder your self made component into a bigger circuit, one of the internal junctions may melt open. If you plug it into a bread board, a not perfect junction may break due to mechanical stress.
Very cool! I have tried making something like this the first time I was studying bridge rectifier. But failed.
