I have this bridge rectifier (Image below). https://www.deantechnology.com/products/hvhp10k

How do I wire this? I know how to wire four pin bridge rectifiers but how do I wire this two pin rectifier?

A rectifier doesn't necessarily have to be of the bridge type. In fact, "rectifier" is basically synonymous with "diode", which is what I believe you've linked here - A diode packaged in a heatsink assembly.

From the same website, scroll down and go to "Full Wave Bridge Rectifiers". Sounds like those are what you're after.

  • \$\begingroup\$ Yep, that's my understanding - either 4 of those or a different part \$\endgroup\$
