Which type of diode for 12v 10amp to 12v 0 amp? Answered
Hi all, wondering if you can offer any advice,
I'm making a circuit that has two sub circuits:-
10 amp transformer, connected to lights
6 amp transformer, connected to lights
Both these sub circuits will be bridged to a large circuit , however I believe I need a diode that will stops the 6 amp transformer getting to circuit 1, but the transformer from circuit 1 to power the lights in circuit 2.
If this is correct could someone advise that type of diode I would need to drop the amps to 0. I'm not sure how diodes work however I'm using led lighting that will run off 5v so I'm aiming to have as close to a one way valve for power.
Also will I have to place a diode on both the positive and negative or will one surface?
Thanks for any help you can offer
