Reading Zener Diode Code

Zener Diodes

Numerous professionals are confounded on the most proficient method to truly peruse a zener diode code. There are numerous kinds of code number showed on it’s body. The look and state of a zener diode sometimescan be mixed up to be a typical sign diode. To separate it, is by taking a gander at the codenumber on it’s body-whether it is a typical diode or Zener Diodes. On account of the makers where their fundamental sheets are printed with the word ‘ZD’ which alluded to zener diode and ‘D’ signifies a diode.

Nonetheless, from my accomplished some printed circuit board the stamping of ‘D’ additionally can speak to zener diode. This will deluded an expert into accepting a zener diode is really a diode. We as a specialist or architect must know or be delicate about the stamping. The best way to discover is by alluding the code number imprinted on the part’s body from a semiconductor information book. Without information book it is very hard to know the genuine zener diode voltage. In the event that you don’t have the information book you may go to Google web index and type the accompanying code and expectation you can discover the appropriate response there! An off-base substitution of zener diode may made your hardware glitch and at times will even blow your gear. Time and cash are misfortune because of that we absence of learning of recognize the privilege zener diode voltage. In the event that you can’t distinguish the code, don’t stress as this pamphlet are here to direct you to effectively on the best way to peruse the zener diode code.

5.1=5.1Volt zener diode

5V1=5.1Volt zener diode

12= 12 Volt zener diode

12V= 12 Volt zener diode



Note: There is likewise part number, for example, BZVXXXXX where you need to discover it from ECG SEMICONDUCTOR BOOK.

1N4746= 18 Volt 1 watt zener diode (allude to ECG PHILIPS SEMICONDUCTORS MASTER REPLACEMENT GUIDE)

6C2=6.2 Volt zener diode. (On the off chance that you take a gander at the zener diode code it is composed as 6C2 READING FROM TOP TO BOTTOM) Don’t peruse from base to top generally the worth you get is 2C6 which you can’t discover from information book!

I accept many will ask how would I get the voltage for the code of 6C2. Still allude to ECG book, you need to scan for HZ part number. That is mean as opposed to finding 6C2, look for HZ6C2 and you will find the solution! The most minimal zener voltage that I ran over was 2.4 volt and the most elevated was 200 Volt 5 watt.

End Be ready when checking the part number of a Zener Diodes. Don’t generally accept that a little signal diode is constantly a zener diode. Cautiously watch the checking on the principle board and read the zener diode part number allude to the semiconductor book, ideally ECG SEMICONDUCTOR DATA BOOK which you can get from your neighborhood electronic wholesaler. In light of this learning, you will be effectively locate the correct voltage of a zener diode.
