Amantys Gate Drives are designed for high power, high availability applications such as traction, wind turbines and medium voltage motor drives. Featuring embedded PLD and software technology the gate drives can be configured over the fibre optic link to allow the power stack designer to optimise the performance of the stack by configuring the gate drive in situ. The configurability of the gate drives is enabled by Amantys' unique Amantys Power Insight technology. Amantys Power Insight allows the power stack designer to communicate with the gate drive for the purposes of configuration and monitoring the IGBT modules at the heart of a converter.
Capable of driving a range of IGBT modules from different manufacturers without hardware changes, they reduce inventory for users who want flexibility in design and sourcing. Each gate drive is suitable for 2-level, 3-level and multi-level converters.
The high isolation DC-DC converter to power high voltage gate drives for 4500V and 6500V IGBT modules. The DC-DC converter is designed to comply with international standards including EN 50155 for railway applications and IEC 61800-5-1 for variable speed motor drives.
Amantys Gate Drives use the same power and fibre-optic interfaces as other commercial gate drives, but with the following benefits:
- Configurable over the fibre optic link
- Reduced inventory costs
- Fault code tracking
- Compatible with commercial alternatives
- Designed and tested to international standards
