TechLine Diode Blocking Silicon Power 5A/(U)50V


Silicon power diode 5A, (U) 50V, blocking diode.

With accessory taillights or taillight/indicator combinations it can happen that a small leakage current flows at the brake line as soon as the taillight cable is connected.
This can lead to malfunctions. E.g. LoFs as soon as a trailer is connected.
To prevent this, a 5A blocking diode is connected in series to the brake light cable so that the current can flow to the tail light but not back.

SPERR-DIRECTION: if you put the diode in front of you and the silver bar on the diode is right, the current can only flow from left to right.
