Vincotech introduces Multiple Modules at PCIM 2018

June 07, 2018 by Paul Shepard

This week, during PCIM 2018, Vincotech announced the release of the new flow E1/E2 product family. Featuring the latest chip generations, these products also deliver superior thermal performance. Vincotech also launched new neutral-point-clamped power modules. The flowNPC 0 line features the latest IGBT technologies in a combination engineered to optimize cost and efficiency for three-phase solar and UPS applications.

The industry's broadest portfolio of standard products just got bigger: Vincotech has added 12mm flow E1/E2 packages to its product range for motion control applications.

This new line goes to augment an offering that already includes PIM (flowPIM E1/E2) and sixpack (flowPACK E1/2) configurations for 600V and 1200V with extended power ranges up to 100A.

With these new modules, customers enjoy enhanced efficiency, greater supply chain security and more options for building the best in high-performance inverters. Benefits include:

  • Superior thermal performance for longer lifetime, higher power and greater reliability
  • Real multiple chip sourcing (IGBT4, IGBT M7) enhances component supply security

Rated for 650V / 100A, Vincotech's new neutral-point-clamped power modules (pictured at the top of this news story) are able to deliver switching frequencies up to 50kHz even without SiC technology. Their chipset has been optimized to deliver the best performance at real power, yet they retain high reactive power capability to offer best-in-class power density.

This enables engineers to craft lighter, more compact designs for three-phase solar and UPS applications. The ability of real multiple chip sourcing improves component supply security.

Both modules are available with Press-fit and solder pins, without adding any non-recurring engineering costs to the bottom line. Samples of the ultra-efficient flowNPC 0 modules may be sourced on demand.
