The brand new SCALE-2 plug-and-play gate driver is alleged to boost set up effectivity and promote system growth.
This gate driver encompasses the 1SP0630V2M1R predominant driver, the 1SP0635D2S1R peripheral driver, and the ISO6125R-33 energy provide.
With a versatile electrical and mechanical design, the driving force can be utilized in programs demanding parallel modules for further energy.
Energy Integrations high-power industrial purposes advertising and marketing director Francesco Fisichella stated: “Rail clients demand sturdy options, and Energy Integrations’ SCALE-2 expertise delivers what they want with excessive ranges of integration and complete safety options.”
Matching the footprint of the smaller IHM single-channel IGBT-module codecs, these compact SCALE-2 gate drivers have 1,200A to 1,400A output present and three,300V IGBT blocking voltage.
The corporate famous that the gate drivers have been developed to be suitable with IHM modules from all key rail producers, together with Mitsubishi, Hitachi, Infineon, and ABB.
For improved scalability, the SCALE-2 expertise depends on an ASIC chipset, which reduces element rely and dimension.
SCALE-2 gate drivers shield the IGBT by way of energetic clamping circuitry in addition to enable the designers to reinforce dynamic switching efficiency, precision, and performance.
With the standard conformal coating, the brand new gate drivers may endure burn-in on request.
By enhancing the connectors, the person can enhance the safety of interconnection and allow fast launch with out tooling. The corporate has additionally supplied fibre-optic interfaces, together with the failure standing output.
The gate drivers even have safety options, together with Dynamic Superior Energetic Clamping, under-voltage lock-out and short-circuit.
These gate drivers not solely fulfil the IEC 61373 necessities for shock and vibration but additionally the environmental specs of IEC 60068-2-xx.
The corporate added that the items are certified underneath electromagnetic compatibility (EMC) in accordance with EN 50121-3-2 and IEC 6100-4-x.
