The Plug-and-Play 1SP0630 gate drivers are compact single-channel intelligent gate drivers optimized for 130 x 140 mm single IGBT High Power (IHM) modules, which are used in railway and other long-life applications. The compact SCALE-2 gate drivers match the footprint of the smaller IHM single-channel IGBT module formats with 1200 A to 1400 A output current and 3300 V IGBT blocking voltage.
These gate drivers meet IEC 61373 specifications for shock and vibration and IEC 60068-2-xx environmental requirements. Units are also EMC-qualified according to EN 50121-3-2 and IEC 6100-4-x. With standard conformal coating, the new gate drivers can also undergo burn-in on request for added reliability. Improved connectors increase interconnection security and facilitate fast release without tooling. Fiber-optic interfaces are provided.
All 1SP0630 gate drivers feature Power Integrations’ Dynamic Advanced Active Clamping, which allows an extended DC-link voltage range in IGBT "off" state for up to 60 seconds in railway and regenerating applications. Also included is short-circuit and under-voltage lock-out protection, along with failure status output.
A complete solution is comprised of a "main" driver ("V2M1" or "S2M1"), one or more "peripheral" drivers ("D2S1"), and an external power supply (ISO6125R-33). Cables (RLC-IMS-61-050-0, and RLC-PSI-41-050-0) connect the drivers, power supply, and external control circuitry.
