Default Re: Data requested for BAY83 diode (1969 vintage)

75v is more than enough.

The flyback voltage across a coil with a diode connected wont be any more than the forward voltage drop of the diode itself and then only for a matter of milliseconds.

If your still worried about it, use a 1N4004 or 1N4007.
