Blocking Diodes for Photovoltaic Systems and High Voltage Battery Storage
The P2500Y by Diotec is an ideal blocking diode to be used in photovoltaic systems and high voltage battery storage. It offers a DC blocking voltage of 1600 V, a repetitive reverse voltage of 2000 V and an avalanche rating of 25 mJ, for robustness against short transients. The nominal average forward is 25 A; since ambient temperature in those applications is high and cooling often a problem, the typical DC current load is limited to about 10 A.
A way to reduce thermal resistance from junction to lead to lowest possible value is shown in the data sheet and the above picture. As a special service, Diotec can offer to provide the leads already bent according to that drawing. Please contact your local Diotec sales office for that service.
