Transformer Optimized for IGBT in Infineon EconoDUAL™ 3 Series

October 25, 2015 by Jeff Shepard

VACUUMSCHMELZE GmbH & Co. KG (VAC) announces the launch of a new transformer optimized for Infineon's EconoDUAL™ 3 Series IGBT. The model number is T60403-F5046-X100, is IEC 61800-compliant and is presented in detail in the product brochure "Gate Drive Transformers for IGBT." It represents further proof of VAC's expertise in designing products that address the needs and specifications of its customers and partners from the start of the development process.

Developed in close collaboration with Infineon, the transformer is built for use in industrial drive applications using IGBT modules of up to 1200V and current class up to 900A. It is used in Infineon’s new EVAL-1EDS20I12SV evaluation board.

The drive transformer is compliant with IEC 61800-5-1, “Adjustable speed electrical power drive systems and reinforced insulation”. It features state-of-the-art winding and insulation technology and exhibits an extremely high corona extinction voltage. The SMT transformer is optimized for today’s typical switching frequency of 100kHz and has ultra-low coupling capacitance for extreme resistance to interference.
