This device is typical in control panel or automation industry.The main purpose of RECTIFIER is to convert fromĀ  AC ( alternating current ) to DC ( direct current ).It common use because now in market,all control device is using DC power supply.It safe and energy efficiency.

Usually when we choose to control our machine or equipment using PLC or Electronic Device,We need DC ( direct Current ) power supply.The range common use in world wide is from 12 VDC until 24 VDC.So we use the RECTIFIER to convert from 110 VAC or 240VAC power supply to DC power supply :D

Alternating Current (AC)

What is an alternating current?

Alternating current (ac) is changing the current flow.Changes in the flow of current in ac circuits because if the changes the polarity of the alternating voltage source alternately.

Current value will increase from zero to a maximum in the positive direction and then dropped to zero. Next, the current will be reduced to a maximum in the negative direction. Then, the current back up to zero.
