KY 717

I was unable to make a better picture. The major division on the paper is 10 mm and the device appears to be 37 mm long. The screw is from what I can see M4 type screw. The soldering hole has diameter of around 3 mm, but is deformed so my measurements could be bad.


It's a power diode (20A) manufactured in the past by Czech company Tesla, and the package is called DO-5/1.
