PRECIMA Full-Wave (Bridge), Half-Wave & Fast Excitation Brake Rectifiers
PMB = Bridge (or Full-Wave) Rectifier
PME = Half-Wave Rectifier
PMEA = Half-Wave Rectifier with protection against overvoltage
PMG = Fast Response Rectifier
These compact modules have been specially designed to be fitted into the terminal boxes of electric-motors.
The PME half wave rectifier which halves the supply voltage (45% of the supply voltage) is the most cost effective.
The PMB full wave bridge rectifier produces a smooth DC voltage (90% of the supply voltage).
Both rectifiers are available for switching on AC or DC side.
Varistors in the input and output protect the rectifiers from surge voltage.
The PMG fast excitation rectifier is recommended whenever short release time or low dissipation is required. It combines the benefits of the half wave and bridge rectifiers.
