IR's latest IGBT modules suit high-power industrial apps



IGBT modules for high power industrial applications

International Rectifier, a leader in power management technology, introduced a comprehensive family of IGBT modules for high power industrial applications including motor drive inverters, switch mode power supplies (SMPS), uninterruptible power supplies (UPS), solar inverters and welding.


The family utilizes IR’s extremely rugged and reliable IGBT technologies (NPT with Planar-gate and Field Stop with Trench-gate) and established diode technology to offer a range of high efficiency robust modules. Available in industry standard packages with a broad array of configurations and current ratings, the family offers designers the flexibility to easily implement high power systems. The family of 72 modules is available with voltage ratings of 600V or 1200V and a variety of speeds and short circuit ratings enabling designers to optimize systems based on application requirements.


“With the introduction of this extensive portfolio, IR is leveraging decades of IGBT design leadership to deliver high efficiency, robust modules serving a wide variety of industrial applications,” said Alberto Guerra, Vice President, Strategic Market Development, IR’s Energy Saving Products Business Unit.


The new IGBT modules complement IR’s iMOTION™ design platform which integrates digital, analog and power technologies together in a flexible, mixed signal chipset to simplify motor control designs and bring energy-efficient, cost-effective solutions to market faster.


“The broad array of devices available in industry standard footprints enables designers to optimize power converter design for their specific system constraints,” said Llewellyn Vaughan-Edmunds, Senior Product Marketing Manager, IR’s Energy Saving Products Business Unit.


IR’s family of modules is qualified to industrial grade and features an environmentally friendly and RoHS compliant bill of materials.
