  • Description
  • Scope of Supply
  • Downloads and Documents


It can be assumed that the students know about the valve action of a diode and also have a knowledge of the basic properties of alternating currents (constant change in magnitude and periodical change in the direction of the current). They can therefore predict the essentials of the action a diode will have in an alternating circuit.


  • No additional cable connections between the building blocks needed - clear arragned and quick setup
  • Contact saftey due to puzzle blocks system
  • Corrosion-free gold plated contacts
  • Doubled earning sucess: Electric circuit diagram on top, real components can be seen unterside


How can alternating current be converted to direct current?

Examine the effect of a diode in an alternating current circuit.
