Diotec Semiconductor SM3000 3000V 1A Rectifier SMD diode
SM3000: High Voltage Rectifier SMD Diode. For an extra high safety margin against transient voltage surges. Designers of Smart Meter, Street Lamps, 4G/5G Base Stations, EV Charging Systems and similar applications often face the issue of over-voltage transients, since all these devices are connected directly to the land line which is highly affected by lightning strikes. They are affecting the reliability and lifetime of these products, so the use of rectifier diodes with extra high safety margin against transient surges is mandatory. The SM3000 by Diotec was especially developed for these applications. It offers an impressive reverse voltage of 3000V, an average forward current of 1A and comes in a single SMD Melf package. Due to the large clearance and creepage of this outline it can replace the usual series connections, which are still common for input rectification at the above applications.
