A new photovoltaic solar panel protection rectifier has been recently released by IC manufacturer Vishay Intertechnology, Inc. The solar panel protection rectifier offers a high current rating of 10 A and a high reverse voltage of 1000 V in the P600 axial package.

Based on glass passivated chip technology, the GPP100MS offers a maximum operating junction temperature of 175 C. The device features low thermal resistance, low forward voltage drop of 0.80 V at 10 A and 125 C, and high forward surge capability of 440 A.

Suitable for polarity protection applications in solar panel blocking boxes, the P600 package features solder bath temperatures of 275C maximum, 10 s, per JESD 22-B106. The GPP100MS is compliant to RoHS Directive 2011/65/EU.

Samples and production quantities of the new rectifier are available now, with lead times of four weeks for larger orders. Follow rectifiers from Vishay here.
