Diode Pack

Diode Pack

A Diode Pack allows the integration of a dual-diode component within a VIVISUN® High Capacity or Compact switch body or NEXSYS® Module to replace external diodes. To increase flexibility, both a commercial and a military version of the Diode Pack are available.

  • Available with two commercial diodes or two military diodes
  • 1 Amp average forward current
  • 4-pin component compatible with VIVISUN switch body or NEXSYS Module

How it Works

The Diode Pack can be included internally in a High Capacity switch body, Compact switch body or NEXSYS Module to eliminate the need for external diodes and simplify circuit design and installation labor.
