Cedric: I know you said "5KE36CA."

Motorola, Fairchild, and some others make a zener transient suppressor 1.5KExxCA. The CA suffix makes it bidirectional.

Actually, Motorola is no longer in the business. On Semiconductor ( sells these parts now.

If you don't bite on adding a "1." prefix to your part number, "PEC" could be Philips Electronic Components.

Good luck

Type in the part number at parts search. Leave out the PEC and you will find three parts. One will direct you to the General Semiconductor site. This should help
