13001 transistor package

The TO-126 is the package used on 13001 transistors, these types of component packages are been commonly used for power devices.

The temperature and voltage capacity of the 13001 is high and at the package, there is a hole for attaching it with heat sink

13001 transistor Description

The 13001 transistor is a high voltage NPN transistor type, the 13001 transistors had an important application at battery charger circuits.

The 13001 had higher voltage values, at the collector to base it is 600v, collector to emitter it is 400v and emitter to base it is 7v, and the higher voltage values make the 13001 at voltage regulated applications.

The maximum collector current at 13001 transistors is 200mA, this current value makes the maximum load allowed to this particular transistor.

The current gain at this transistor is starting at 5 to 40Hfe, this value is important on the amplifier circuits.

The power dissipation at the 13001 transistors is 1000Mw, this is known as the power transistor, so heat capacity is an important factor.

The 13001 transistors had a transition frequency value of 8MHz, this is important for the switching applications.
