Product Description -
Optimized for applications in frequencies of operation between 20 and 30 kHz, the new NFM-Series not only fills a requirement in medium to high frequency applications but also does so with the only single device of its type on the market.
Standard industrial IGBT modules are optimized for hard switched PWM inverters with carrier frequencies less than 20 kHz to achieve low VCE (sat). However, some applications, such as induction heating, require a higher frequency (30 kHz to 60 kHz) operation where low E SW (off) is essential. Powerex met that high frequency requirement with its NFH-Series line, which is most effective in applications requiring a soft turn-on.
Powerex has now expanded its product line even further to fill the gap that existed between the standard IGBT and NFH with the new NFM-Series.
Product Ratings and Characteristics -
Rated at 1200V, the NFM-Series offers low loss and hard switching at 20 to 30 kHz. Duals are available from 100 to 300 amperes in a 108 x62 mm mounting hole package while singles are available in the higher current range of 400 to 600 amperes with the same mounting. The single configuration on this device is the only one currently available on the market.
NFM-Series is targeted for power supplies for medical equipment and other high frequency H-Bridge power applications, such as induction heating and welders.
