September 2018 - Connecting Customers with Reliable Power Assembly Solutions
Published on: 20/09/2018
GD Rectifiers have been manufacturing power assemblies for over 50 years
GD Rectifiers offers customers a wide range of reliable power assembly solutions and have been servicing engineers, buyers and procurement specialists throughout the power electronics industry for over 50 years.
Power Assembly Solutions
GD Rectifiers offers a broad range of power assembly services and solutions, from standard off-the-shelf assemblies, to components, custom designs and traction refurbishments. GD Rectifiers utilise the experience of their mechanical, electrical and power electronics engineering experts to test, design and deliver the best technology in their products.
GD Rectifiers’ power assemblies and controllers are used in a wide range of applications from high powered voltage rectifiers, resistance welding, plating, heating, lighting, cathodic protection, pulse power, choppers and wind, solar and tidal energy.
Blocking and Voltage Dropping Diodes
Blocking and voltage dropping diodes are often used in solar energy systems to allow a flow of current from the solar panel to the battery, they are designed to prevent the flow of current to the solar panel which in turn prevents it from discharging.
Firing Circuits and Trigger Modules
Firing circuits controls and triggers the thyristors AC voltage which periodically switches off the thyristor when it goes to zero in every cycle.
Hexaphase Power Assemblies
Hexaphase assemblies are available in both double star uncontrolled and double star controlled configurations. GD Rectifiers can design bespoke hexaphase assemblies to customer specifications.
GD Rectifiers stock IXYS’ range of Six Pack IGBTs, Phase Leg IGBTs and Converter Brake Inverter Modules designed for AC motors, switch-mode power supplies and standalone equipment for solar power applications and back-up supplies.
Photovoltaic Triple Diode Assemblies
GD Rectifiers offer modules designed to assist photovoltaic systems in the assembly of blocking diodes on strings of photovoltaic panels.
GD Rectifiers offers three types of rectifiers: fully controlled, half controlled and uncontrolled rectifiers. Their wide range of rectifiers are available with fitted line fuses, indicators, microswitches, thermal trips, standby fans, free wheel diodes and trigger circuits.
Regulators automatically convert voltage in to DC whilst maintaining a constant voltage level by using either a feed-forward design or negative feedback. GD Rectifiers offer single phase and three phase regulators designed to control the level of voltage or current of a device.
Rotating Diode Assemblies
Rotating diode assemblies are typically used in rotating UPS, wind power systems, hydro energy and energy recovery in hybrid and e-mobility. Ocram’s rotating diode assemblies are available in a six-pulse bridge connection with an id range of 30-300A.
GD Rectifiers offer a selenium rectifier replacement service, they are able to replicate obsolete Westcode, International Rectifier, STC, Semikron and Automat selenium rectifiers.
Selenium suppressors are a popular choice for engineers and are designed to protect semiconductors from damage caused by transient surges. GD Rectifiers are able to build reliable selenium suppressors to a detailed specification.
Single Phase Power Assemblies
GD Rectifiers offers a large range of single phase power assemblies available in half controlled and fully controlled configurations.
Three Phase Power Assemblies
GD Rectifiers offers a large range of three phase power assemblies available in controlled and uncontrolled configurations.
GD Rectifiers are not part of a big corporate group; they benefit fro having a small hands-on team so they can be reactive to new product requirements.
GD Rectifiers deliver the very best in customer service, ensuring customers speak to the same sales executive from the enquiry stage right the way through to delivery.
GD Rectifiers offers to hold stock for their customers at their factory so that customers can pull products in quickly when demand increases.
