4.5kV & 6kV Asymmetric IGCT Bipolar Devices

Product of the Month November

Leading Dynex's Bipolar offerings are a range of Integrated Gate-Commutated Thyristors (IGCTs)s capable of doing the most work with their idealised gate drives. The IGCTs are offered in the following voltages and currents.

Device Voltage class Forward current
CAC 3000-60 6000 3000
CAC 4000-45 4500 4000
CAC 4000-45-02 4500 4000
CAC 5000-45 4500 5000
CAC 8000-45* 4500 8000
CAC 2200-45 4500 2200

The IGCT products have been designed for high power converters, motor drive equipment and flexible transmission systems in renewable and industrial applications.

This robust device offers a number of benefits for end-user applications inclusive of; reduced system cost, improved thermal characteristics, maximised system efficiency and reliable operation in severe environments.

The devices have passed the IEC60747-6-2000 Semiconductor Devices Part 6: Thyristor and IEC60747-2-2000 Semiconductor Devices Discrete Devices and Integrated Circuits Part 2: Rectifier Diodes test standards.

Key Features:

  • Self-turn off capabilities
  • Low operation losses
  • Fit for application in series
