Suitable for use in rail traction, industrial motor control, renewable energy systems and electricity transmission and distribution applications, the MG1200GXH1US61 power module has been released by Toshiba Electronics Europe. The 4500V, 1200A device integrates an N-channel IEGT and a fast recovery diode into a standard package with a footprint of just 140x190mm.
Designed to be used at much higher currents in the 4500V module class, the MG1200GXH1US61 can also save energy, space and weight in high-power switching converter/inverter and motor control designs.
Offering an isolation voltage rating of 6000VAC, the power module can handle a peak turn-off collector current of 2400A. Collector power dissipation is 4000W at 25°C. The device operates across a temperature range of -40 to +150°C, ensuring compatibility with the extended temperature environments that characterise high voltage applications.
