Replacing selenium rectifier with diode
Hi, I am replacing the selenium rectifier in my Ampex 1/4" machine with a diode but I don't know exactly what to buy. The schematic only has two pieces of information about the rectifier. The current rating is listed as .460A (measured) on the parts list. On the actual schematic it says 1 1/2 amp. I am looking at rectifier diodes on Newark and there are other options like diode configuration, repetitive reverse voltage Vrrm max, forward current, reverse recovery time, and forward surge current Ifsm max.
