Power Code

Technology / Motors / Power Code: Identifies the type of power supply providing power to a DC motor. Frequency, voltage, and type of rectifier configuration. MORE


Technology / Home Audio / Generator: A machine that produces AC electricity from a rotating coil interaction within a magnetic field. In automotive applications, a rectifier is used to convert this output to DC. Also, an electronic devic MORE

Ripple (Amplifier)

Technology / Home Audio / Ripple (Amplifier): A train of pulses that occurs when AC is changed to DC via a rectifier. These pulses are left on the DC if not filtered and regulated properly, or if toomuch current is being drawn. MORE
