Electrical Equipment & Systems

IGBT Drive Transformers enable reliable motor control.

Operating from 500-3,000 V and up to 350 VA and 500 kHz, IGBT power control transformers may be used where high power and harsh electrical environments coincide. Products are custom-designed using circuit simulation and magnetic modeling techniques to control parasitics such as dc winding resistance, winding capacitance, and leakage inductance. Corona values are less than 10 pC @ 3.3 kV, HIPOT at...
