    Im looking at two triacs
    one is 6A 400VRM TO-220 2N6343A
    other 6A 400 V TO-220 L4004L6

    My simple question is What does VRM mean are both of these basicaly the same
    ? Im looking at a schematic that calls for the a Triac that is 6A 220 or 400
    100ma.

    Should I just ignor the RM of the VRM.

    Thanks

    Usually their voltage ratings are listed as VDRM and VRRM.

    VDRM = Peak Repetitive Forward Off State Voltage

    VRRM = Peak Repetitive Reverse Off Stat Voltage

    Most likely you are looking at the VDRM rating.
