24V AC Diode equivalent
« on: November 15, 2015, 12:11:26 AM »
I have a 24V AC timer board I am using.

it has 18 separate outlet points each controlled by either a Programmable timer or a manual timer.

I need a separate LED warning for each outlet to let me know which circuit is on. Either program or timer.

At the moment, whichever program is powered both warning lights light up.

Using DC power I could overcome the problem by using DIODES in each lamp to ensure no power backfeed.

By using a DIODE with the AC Circuit all  I get is a half wave rectified current of about 13 to 14 Volts.I need the full 24 VAC.

Maximum current is about .5 A.

How can I overcome this feedback problem while maintaining a 24 VAC output.

Would appreciate any help.

Thanks
