The MS T2505C10 from MS Power is a Phase Control Thyristor that has been designed to provide full blocking capability over a wide operating temperature range. It has a break-over voltage of 1800 V and a break-over current of 47 kA. This silicon-controlled rectifier (SCR) has a gate trigger voltage of 3 V and a gate trigger current of 250 mA. It can handle a high surge current, making it suitable for a wide variety of high-current applications. This SCR is available in a hermetically-sealed disc package that measures 102 x 26 mm and is ideal for welding, motor control, battery chargers, controlled rectifiers, medical equipment, induction heating, power supplies, UPS, and transportation applications.
