Professors Frank and Günther,

Thank you both for the challenges presented in the Lectron System circuits that you have presented.

My newest acquisition (thanks again Günther and Frank) of the Ausbausystem 5 includes a thyristor block.  Unfortunately, no instruction manual came with the unit.  The Ausbausystem 5 had some similar subject matter to what would become the KfZ model focusing on automotive electronic systems.  Experiment 11.68 in the KfZ manual discusses the role of the thyristor (part #8100 423) in power control applications.

Here is also a link to provide an overview of what the thyristor component does (yes I had to educate myself on this subject although I was familiar with the component with its GE branded name of SCR).
