Coil voltage selection

Supply Rectifier Coil voltage
Rectifiers convert a.c. voltage supply to d.c. supply volts (a.c.) type d.c.
Output voltages are calculated as follows:
110 Bridge 103
V a.c. 220 Bridge 180
Bridge rectifier (full wave) V d.c. = 230/240 Bridge 205
220 Half wave 103
230/240 Half wave 103
V a.c. 317 Half wave 150
Half wave rectifier Vd.c. =
2.2 380 Half wave 180
400/415 Half wave 180
460 Half wave 205

Type 99.198.20

Brake rectifiers
Type B3-90044 Automatic dc switching
A new design of bridge rectifier with internal dc switching that
operates automatically when power is removed, so speeding brake
engagement and suiting frequency stop/starting. Suits panel or
terminal box mounting, dimensions 49.5 x 31 x 20 deep, fixing
holes 3.3mm x 38mm apart.
Supply 300V ac max
Output 2A at –20 to +40ºC, 1A at +40 to +70ºC

Type B3-93500 Forced voltage

A new low cost and compact forced voltage rectifier for terminal box
or panel mounting. The unit switches internally from full wave to half
wave supply after approx. 0.25s. This allows faster brake release by
matching the half wave supply to the coil, alternatively faster brake
engagement by matching the full wave supply.
Panel or terminal box mount, 61 x 50 x 20 deep, fixing holes
3.3mm x 38mm apart.
Supply 200-500V ac
Output 1A at –20 to +40ºC, 0.5A at +40 to +70ºC

Type B3-69500 Forced voltage

A force voltage half wave rectifier suitable for faster energising of
larger d.c. brakes. When the a.c. supply is switched on the unit
transmits the full waveform for about 0.5 seconds. It then
switches internally to transmit half the waveform for holding the
brake. Switching the brake coil on the d.c. side of the rectifier is
essential for lifts and hoists. Coil selection is the same as for
standard half wave rectifiers. CSA and UL approved.
When d.c. switching a suppressor should be used.
Input: 440V a.c. max
Output: 250V d.c. 3 A max
Temperature range: 0 to 60°C
Fixing holes diameter: 4.5mm
