ABB releases new medium-power IGBT modules


ABB’s medium-power modules family, the 62Pak, is officially released for mass production and available for unlimited sales. End of April all qualification tests have been successfully finalized and ABB is proud to present a very competitive family of medium-power modules. The 62Pak line-up consists of modules in the 1700V voltage class. Three current ratings are available in a phase leg configuration: 2 x 300A, 2 x 200A and 2 x 150A.

The ABB’s 62Pak modules are designed to the highest standards with the same quality philosophy like the well-established HiPak modules. The 62Pak modules feature the state of the art 1700V SPT++ IGBT/diode chipset that offers best in class performance in terms of lowest switching losses and highest ruggedness. The package offers a long lifetime in demanding applications thanks to high power cycling performance. This has been achieved by an optimized wire-bonding process and with stamped spacers in the baseplate and main terminals. With the help of the spacers, a homogenous solder layer thickness can be ensured that offers a significantly narrowed distribution and improved power cycling performance. In addition, the 1700V SPT++ chipset offers an operation temperature range that includes full switching performance up to 175°C. This enables applications using ABB’s 62Pak modules to benefit from higher over-load capability and/or improved safety margin to unexpected current surges.

ABB’s 62Pak IGBT modules are well suited for most power electronic applications that include low-voltage as well as medium-voltage drives, static VAR compensators, uninterruptable power supplies, induction heating and traction auxiliary converters to mention just a few.
