The Powerline range of high power modules includes half
bridge, chopper, dual and single switch configurations covering
voltages from 600V to 3300V and currents up to 2400A.
The DIM400DCM17-A000 is a 1700V, n channel
enhancement mode, insulated gate bipolar transistor (IGBT)
chopper module. The IGBT has a wide reverse bias safe
operating area (RBSOA) ensuring reliability in demanding
applications. This device is optimised for traction drives and
other applications requiring high thermal cycling capability.
The module incorporates an electrically isolated base plate
and low inductance construction enabling circuit designers to
optimise circuit layouts and utilise grounded heat sinks for safety.
Note: When ordering, please use the whole part number.
