With ACEPACK, ST Microelectronics has launched a series of adaptable, compact package power modules, which are easy to deploy. They are perfectly suited for simple, efficient and rugged industrial motor designs up to 30 kW. The power modules are now available in two versions, ACEPACK 1 and ACEPACK 2, from Rutronik UK.
The power modules come with Sixpack and Converter Inverter Brake (CIB) topologies. With an embedded NTC thermistor, these highly reliable power modules offer the best compromise between conduction and switching loss, maximising the efficiency of any converter system up to 20kHz in hard-switching circuitries for an application range from 3 to 30kW. The PressFIT feature and additional solder pin options enable flexible and stable mounting for compact designs and cost-effective systems.
With their configuration flexibility, the ACEPACK-modules can implement other topologies on different IGBT, MOSFET and SiC power switching applications. Further key features include a 15A to 75A current rating at 25°C, a 650V to 1200V breakdown voltage and a 2.5kV isolation voltage.
Due to the module design, the stray inductance is very low. The maximum junction temperature of 175°C ensures increased robustness and high reliability.
The ACEPACK is well suited for industrial motor drives, 3-phase inverters for motor drivers up to 30 kW, uninterruptible power supplies (UPS) and hybrid and electric vehicles.
