The complete range on offer from GD Rectifiers

GD Rectifiers Thyristors

Thyristors are a broad classification of bipolar-conducting semiconductor devices having four (or sometimes more) alternating N-P-N-P layers. Thyristors include: silicon controlled rectifier (SCR), TRIAC, gate turn off switch (GTO), silicon controlled switch (SCS), AC diode (DIAC), unijunction transistor (UJT) and programmable unijunction transistor (PUT).

GD Rectifiers are one of the Europe’s leading distributors of power electronic components. They stock a broad range of semiconductors, including: Thyristors, Diodes, MOSFETs, IGBTs and Rectifiers from the world’s leading manufacturers. They also manufacture a lot of own branded products, including: Power Assemblies, Heatsinks, High Voltage Diodes and Selenium Rectifiers and Suppressors.

GD Rectifiers stock an extensive range of Thyristors from IXYS, IXYS UK Westcode and SEMIKRON.


IXYS Thyristors

IXYS manufacture a large range of Thyristor Modules (Single Thyristors and Dual Thyristors) and Discrete Phase control Thyristors ranging from 16A to 700A with a voltage range of 100V to 2200V.
