Why Should One Have To Squeeze Disc Thyristor
I have a question about how important it is to squeeze a disc thyristor that gets them to work.

Excuse me,

I wanna know about Disc Thyristor. I've heard that we have to 'squeeze' a Disc thyristor for let them work. How Important of Squeezing a thyristor? How squeezing can help it work?

Now, I'm use MITSUBISHI FT1500AU-240 disc thyristor. Do you have an application manual or information about installation?

Improved electrical contact and heat flow is needed for high-power devices. You will have to locate a spec sheet from the source of the device you have.
