Power Deuce Schottky Advanced E-Bus Diode
“Heck, there’s nothing
wrong with using conventional p-n junction diodes if your airplane runs on
Schottky diodes were developed for lower voltages common to battery applications.
They have much lower forward voltage drop. This characteristic of the Schottky
means lower power losses, greater efficiency, less heat and smaller (or no) heat
Let's face it--you could use a p-n diode or even one leg of a full-wave bridge
from your local Radio Shack; but why would you want to? Your cellphone doesn't
use p-n diodes because they waste too much power, why should your airplane?
The Power-Deuce-Schottky is a double diode module that can be paralleled as a
big single 60A diode, separately as two smaller diodes or in a Y-configuration.
