New IPM Solution for Embedded Drive Applications

May 19, 2015
By Business Wire News


Vincotech, a supplier of module-based solutions for power electronics, today announced the release of a new intelligent-power module (IPM) for low-power operation in embedded drive applications. This three-phase input power module comes in a flow 1B housing with press-fit pins for easy assembly.

Vincotech’s flowIPM product family is the best solution for mechanical environments where space is tight, for instance, in embedded motor drives for fans, pumps, washing machines and small industrial motor drives with up to 2 kW output power.

This intelligent power module (20-1B12IPA008SC-L239C09) is a 1200 V / 8 A IPM that integrates an inverter, a rectifier, shunt resistors and the entire gate driver circuit for three-phase input operation in such a way that very few additional external components are needed. Even the bootstrap diode and capacitor are included. A high level of integration is achieved by adopting the screen printing technology on a ceramic-based substrate.

Sample modules may be sourced on demand from our usual channels. The product is being ramped up for mass production and will ship in September of 2015.
