Screwed Diode and Thyristor Solutions : The reliable alternative from Powerex

Share this article

The electronics industry is constantly evolving, and it’s not uncommon for manufacturers to stop producing older components in favor of new technologies. Others are experiencing supply or planning difficulties, and are reporting very long lead times and delays. This can pose a major challenge for companies that depend on these components for their existing systems and applications. This is particularly true of screw-in diodes (also known as bolt-in diodes) and screw-in thyristors (or bolt-in thyristors). Powerex has solutions to help its customers cope with these difficulties.
