This is one of two bridge rectifiers recovered from a failed LED lamp.

Bridge Rectifier

I've seen the 'backwards R' before but don't know what it means/identifies. The other logo on the left is one I've never seen before. Can anyone identify/explain either of these? Thanks.

  • \$\begingroup\$ Did you try googling "DB104 bridge rectifier"? \$\endgroup\$ – Joe Hass Dec 24 '13 at 0:06
  • \$\begingroup\$ @Joe, yes, and I looked at several data sheets trying to find the logo on the left, to no avail. \$\endgroup\$ – Don Wakefield Dec 24 '13 at 0:44

This appears to be Russian, or sold by Russians. At least, I find Russian parts suppliers listing bridge rectifiers with the same logo. For example at this odd URL with spaces in it: http://radimexbg.com/index.php?pid=1%20%20%20%20%20%209122 or same part at http://radiodetali.spb.ru/diody-i-diodnye-mosty/most-diodnyjj-kbu6m/id190/

I hope you read Russian! Google translate didn't turn up any obvious manufacturer's name, so far. But having gotten this far, my curiosity will not rest...

UPDATE: Aha got it! Yangzhou Yangjie Electronics Co Ltd http://www.21yangjie.com/en/

  • \$\begingroup\$ how on Earth did you track that down? Have you just seen parts with that logo before? Anyway, good show! \$\endgroup\$ – Don Wakefield Dec 24 '13 at 3:29
  • \$\begingroup\$ (blows final wisps of smoke off hot googling fingertips) Well, that was the hardest Google search I've done in a long time. \$\endgroup\$ – DarenW Dec 24 '13 at 3:52
  • \$\begingroup\$ Thanks. @Peter, I think this was the more difficult question to answer, so with thanks to you as well, I'm giving the laurels to Daren. \$\endgroup\$ – Don Wakefield Dec 24 '13 at 4:50
  • \$\begingroup\$ Peter is right about the reverse "UR" so I upvoted :) Amazing, how we can come together on a site like this and solve mysteries. \$\endgroup\$ – DarenW Dec 24 '13 at 5:01
  • \$\begingroup\$ Yup well done dude +1 \$\endgroup\$ – Andy aka Dec 24 '13 at 10:48

The reverse "UR" logo is an Underwriters Laboratories component recognition mark. (UL http://www.ul.com/ ) is a US standards certification organization.

The other logo is probably the manufacturer's logo, but I don't recognize it.

  • \$\begingroup\$ UL have an index of logo's.... just trying to find it ...I think it was the UL white book ? \$\endgroup\$ – Spoon Dec 24 '13 at 9:32
  • \$\begingroup\$ Ok... I think my memory is faulty... it's not in the white book ... but i m trying to read it on my tablet and it's not fun. For ref ul.com/global/documents/offerings/perspectives/regulators/… \$\endgroup\$ – Spoon Dec 24 '13 at 9:47

  • \$\begingroup\$ @Spoon, that is very interesting, in a "late night browsing" sort of way. I searched through all the linked UL directories that made sense, and found Yangzhou… in the third "Recognized Components" volume. But if I hadn't known the name of the company courtesy of DarenW, I would have had to visually scan every page for the logo. So yeah, if you're desperate. Still, fun to see, so thanks. \$\endgroup\$ – Don Wakefield Dec 24 '13 at 16:45
