Rectifier Diode - 1N4001
25 pieces per pack
This is a simple, very common rectifier diode. Often used for reverse voltage protection, the 1N4001 is a staple for many power, DC to DC step up, and breadboard projects.
1N4001 is a member of 1N400x diodes. Diode is a rectifying device which conducts only from anode to cathode. Diode behaves open circuited for the current flow from cathode to anode. 1N4001 is a 1A diode with low forward voltage drop and high surge current capability. Has low reverse leakage current of 5µA. Its DC blocking voltage is 50V.
