I am trying to identify this bridge rectifier. It is on a control board for a horizontal saw. It is between the single phase 80 VA step down transformer 26 V output and the logic circuit. There is no power on the DC side and the AC side reads 80 VAC using a multimeter. I need to investigate a little more to find out why the transformer is outputting such a high voltage - likely the cause of the bridge-rectifier failure.

  • \$\begingroup\$ I plan on replacing the component- so identifying the original and obtaining the data sheet will make sure the replacement is compatible. \$\endgroup\$

  • \$\begingroup\$ Almost anything in the same size package should have comparable specs. \$\endgroup\$

  • \$\begingroup\$ The generic part number is RS35. Then you have a voltage rating of 400,600,800,1000V. 400V is adequate for your application. Overvoltage tends to make the bridge rectifier go short circuit. Failing open circuit would be unusual but not unheard of. \$\endgroup\$

All bridge rectifiers used in Power Supply products have the same pinout.

You don't really actually need to identify the manufacturer.

Desolder it and test it by a multimeter. There are 4 diodes inside. If the part is not damaged then all 4 diodes will show 0.5 V to 0.7 V.
