Applied Power Systems has unveiled the SixPac series of completely integrated inverter power stages for energy conversion, frequency conversion, motor drives and similar applications, ensuring a reduction in time for new product development. The new devices promise a cost-effective solution that maximizes performance and flexibility and minimizes size and costs.

"By fully integrating the most advanced IGBT technology with a thermal management system, DC link capacitor, laminated bus and our industry proven IGBT driver and control boards, the SixPac series of versatile power stages can be used as inverters, brake choppers, motor drives, power supplies, UPS, frequency converters and other power conversion applications," says James Murphy, general manager at APS.

Advance fault detection
Reducing power losses by up to 30 percent and increasing output capacity by 20 percent, the SixPac not only has the most advanced fault detection and protection circuitry in the industry, it is also field repairable and boasts current rating ranges from 50A to over 2500A, according to the company.

Available in a wide variety of circuit configurations, the SixPac platform allows users to "buy exactly what they require with little or no need for compromise," says APS engineering manager Joseph Pignatelli.

The SixPac series is available in 10 standard current levels, three voltage levels and four circuit configurations. There are more than 85 combinations of current and voltage levels not including options and accessories. The standard SixPac is equipped with IGBTs, heat sink, low inductance laminated bus, DC link capacitor, current sensors, gate drivers with a full complement of fault protection circuits to protect the IGBT from overcurrent, short circuit, shoot-through, overvoltage, undervoltage lockout and dead time generator and diagnostic LEDs. Options include heat sink style, forced air cooling, liquid cooling and input converter.
