Collection of Georges Werts B. What’s more, the AC transformer voltage Vrms will also sag as the load current increases.

GZ34 Datasheet PDF

Collection of Alberto Ammendola I. The GZ34 data sheet quotes a maximum capacitance of 60uF, although you can, in theory, exceed this if you increase the limiting resistance proportionately.

Most valve rectifiers also need their own, dedicated heater supply. Diodes also have peak and surge current ratings, but you don’t have to worry about these as they are always well in excess of what you need, provided the average current rating is adequate for the job. Collection of Karl – Heinz Bossan D. Required Diode Ratings The diodes in a two-phase rectifier need to have an average forward current rating that comfortably exceeds the maximum DC load current in your circuit.

This can be done by adding a 10nF to nF capacitor in parallel with each diode. You can read about more accurate voltage prediction here.


GZ34 (Philips) – High-vacuum Full-wave Rectifier

Quantity of Models at Radiomuseum. Collection of Massimo Pedrina I.

If the transformer alone doesn’t have enough resistance to meet this requirement then you need to make up the deficit by adding resistors in series with each anode. Collection of Reinhard Riek D. GZ34 End of forum contributions about this tube.

GZ34 End of forum contributions about this tube. The attached pdf gives a brief overview, but other factors such as series datqsheet and capacitor loading must also be considered.

Antique radios, Old Time Radios. Collection of Tomasz Szczesniak PL. The peak AC voltage is equal to 1. Collection of Patrice Zeissloff F. The best option is to buy diodes with higher voltage ratings, but they’re not nearly as common as the 1N In the hybrid bridge hybridge?

The data sheet will also quote the maximum average DC current that the valve can handle. After rectification this will produce a DC voltage somewhere between: Collection of Peter Steffen CH. Collection of Giorgio Busletta I.

Collection of Danko Tkalec HR. Under light loading the DC output voltage will again be equal to: Valve rectifiers sometimes also need current-limiting resistance to protect them see shortly from excessive ripple and surge currents.

The bigger the reservoir capacitance, the more limiting resistance you need. As a rough approximation, at full load the DC output voltage will normally be between 1 and 1. Collection of Karlheinz Fischer D. For example, if you buy a transformer rated for “Vac mA” then you can expect it to produce anywhere from V to Vac with light loading. Two full-wave rectifiers orientated in opposte directions creates a bipolar supply positive and negative DC.


In other words, we shoudln’t use the 1N with anything more than a V transformer.

Valve Rectifiers Ordinary valve rectifiers contain two diodes which share the same cathode and heaterin one bottle. Superficially this datqsheet like a bridge rectifier and you can indeed use a bridge rectifier diode packagebut it is best viewed as a pair of two-phase rectifiers. Collection of Patrice Zeissloff F. Darasheet of Models at Radiomuseum. The vast majority of valve guitar amps still use two-phase rectifiers even when they use solid-state diodes.

You reach this tube or valve page from a search after clicking the “tubes” tab or by clicking a tube on a radio model page. At any time, one diode is on and the other is off.

Bridge Rectifier A bridge rectifier is used to rectify AC from a transformer with a single winding i. Collection of Christian Schaufelberger CH. Sovtek; Saratov National Electronics, Inc. The same basic principles hold for the two-phase as for the bridge rectifier. Collection of Oskar Elm D.

For the GZ34 this is mA for a capacitor-input rectifier with transformer voltages up to V, but the limit is reduced for datasheef transformer voltages.
