216D/217D Diode

A significantly key element in all three applications of our Style “C”, AC/DC circuits, is the Diode that terminates the circuits.  A substantial amount of engineering effort has been invested in it. This product addresses, in meaningful ways, the collective shortcomings of other brand, and home-made solutions to the Diode problem.  With its built-in lightning protection, it is not lightning-proof, but some signalmen believe it is, it is waterproof to 50 feet below the surface of the water, it has a 70 Amp current capacity, the conductive path in the 216/217 is three times greater than the common alternative brand and heat-sinking of the diode results in virtually no failures in bad track conditions or where induction overworks the diode.
