I have a schematic drawing on a board I've never seen before. It looks like a zener but has 2 arrows pointing toward the junction line. Anyone have any idea what type part this is. The part itself looks like a radial cap.

If it looks like 2 zener symbols tyed together at their cathodes I belive this is a avalanche diode or transient voltage suppressor (TVS). If you have a p/n you could do a search on like digikeys wesite and possible get an idea.

Now I have to guess and make a few assumptions. Without looking at the back side of the board my guess is you have some 400-100V diode bridges before the resistor ,zener and the FET . The FET is a 500V 0.85 Rdson NFET. All of this suggests a chopper

Cedric: I know you said "5KE36CA." Motorola, Fairchild, and some others make a zener transient suppressor 1.5KExxCA. The CA suffix makes it bidirectional. Actually, Motorola is no longer in the business. On Semiconductor (www.onsemi.com) sells t
