Features / Technical Specifications
A 1N4007 is a widely used general purpose diode. It is normally build to use as rectifier in the power supplies section of electronic appliances for converting AC voltage to DC with other filter capacitors. It is a diode of 1N400x series in which there are also other similar diodes from 1N4001 to 1N4007 and the only difference between them is the max repetitive reverse voltage.
Moreover it can also be used in any general purpose application where there is need of a general diode. The 1N4007 diode is built for working with high voltages and it can easily handle voltage below 1000V. The 1000mA or 1A average fwd current, 3W power dissipation with small size and lost cost also makes it ideal for wide variety of applications.
Where We Can Use It
1N4007 can be used in variety of circuits, it is normally built for general purpose rectification purpose but it can also be used in any circuit where there is need of voltage blocking, blocking voltage spikes etc. It can also be used in digital logic circuits.
