Amantys Gate Drives are premium gate drive products, enhanced with a number of beneficial features. Capable of driving a range of IGBT modules from different manufacturers without gate resistor 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 in a wide variety of applications.
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 Power Insight is a new software platform for monitoring and control of power switching in medium and high voltage applications. Gate drives enabled with this capability can monitor and control IGBTs at the heart of a converter.
Amantys Gate Drives use the same power and fibre-optic interfaces as other commercial gate drives, but with the following benefits:
- Programmable startup and fault recovery time
- Lower no-load power dissipation
- Reduced self-heating for longer lifetime
- Voltage monitors on all power rails enabling safe start-up with IGBT held off
- Compliant with traction and industrial safety and partial discharge standards
- Amantys Power Insight enabled
