At an auction today I picked up a Bridge Rectifier. It is in a Hoffman enclosure with a 240/480V to 120V transformer single phase, a bridge rectifier, some sort of contactor with a Mallroy 200Av hollow cylinder capacitor ( I think this might be some sort of regulator) and a smoothing capacitor in parralel with the DC output. I applied 240V and measured 164V DC on the output. However I dont know how many amps this unit is rated for. How can I calculate that? I assume this voltage is deadly and I took great care in testing.
What purpose would a device like this be used for?
