New Dynex IGBT modules, available from Westek Electronics , cover a large number of applications including uni-directional and bi-directional switching, chopper, dual and single switching, as well as half-bridge operation. Operating voltages are selectable from 1200 V to 6500 V.
In the 1200 V range, rated currents range to 800 A; in the 1700 V range, to 2400 A; in the 3300 V range, to 1200 A; in the 4500 V range, to 900 A; and in the 6500 V range, the rated current is 400 A. Dynex IGBT modules are characterised by high peak current handling capability.
The Dynex IGBT technology is developed in-house by the Dynex R&D team, and manufactured in wafer fabrication facilities located in Lincoln (UK), ensuring complete control of the manufacturing process from dice through to tested modules.
Typical applications include:
- Railway traction
- Induction heating
- Wind power generators
- Industrial motor drives
- Electric vehicles
