General Purpose Diodes

The  general purpose  diodes  have relatively high reverse recovery time. The  diodes are general  made  by diffusion. They  are used  in low  speed  applications  where recovery time  is not  critical. They have  current  rating limit  form 1A  to several thousands  of amperes and voltages rating limit between  50 V  to5 k v. They  are used  in welding power supplies battery  charging  UPS  electric  traction etc.
