Silicon Diode Modules feature 11 and 6.5 KV blocking capability.
March 18, 2010 -
Designed to meet high voltage blocking and high current requirements, Models QRSB165001 and QRD6565001 each feature 2 ribbon-bonded, 67 mm diode elements, which provide 650 A of steady-state current. Units offer 11 KV/650 A single and 6.5 KV/650 A half-bridge configuration while providing 12 KV isolation to baseplate. Housed in corona-resistant package, modules are suited for DC power supplies, pulse power, front-end converters, and laser power supplies.

Powerex Introduces 2 New High Voltage/Current Diode Modules with 11KV and 6.5KV Blocking Capability
Product Description -
Developed to meet the high voltage blocking and high current requirements, Powerex is now offering two new high voltage silicon diode modules (QRSB165001 and QRD6565001) which complement our standard 6500V HVIGBT product offering. Each configuration features ribbon-bonded, 67mm diode elements (two per module) which provide 650A of steady-state current.
Offering an innovative corona resistant package design, these modules are constructed to provide 11KV/650A single and 6.5KV/650A half-bridge configuration while providing 12KV isolation to the baseplate.
11KV is achieved by connecting matched diodes in series. All components and interconnects are isolated from the heat sinking baseplate, offering simplified system assembly and thermal management.
Product Ratings and Characteristics -
Both the single QRSB165001, rated at 11,000V/650A, and the dual QRD6565001, rated at 6500V/650A, feature:
o high blocking voltage
o isolated baseplate
o elements matched for series operation
o high surge current rating
o same mounting height to our 6500V HVIGBT modules
o spherical convex baseplate for lowest thermal resistance
These devices are designed for high voltage blocking applications, such as DC power supplies, pulse power, front-end converters, clamp diode for multi-level inverters, chopper diodes and laser power supplies.
QRSB165001 can be purchased at sample pricing at $620 each. QRD6565001 can be purchased at sample pricing at $610 each.
