    Thanks for your reply.

    I know how to test standard diodes and standard bridge rectifiers, but this unit is a "Half Controlled Single Phase Rectifier Bridge"

    I have never come across a unit like this before so I am unsure how to test.

    I would guess that you need some kind of input on pin 1 and 3 for them diodes to work.

    Can you please advice.

    Best Regards.

    For the non-controlled side I get the following test results.

    Pin4 & Pin8 = No Reading.
    Pin4 & Pin8 = 514.

    Pin6 & Pin8 = No Reading.
    Pin6 & Pin8 = 513.

    Pin2 & Pin8 = No Reading.
    Pin2 & Pin8 = 510.
