1200V and 1700V Gate Drives



Amantys 1200V and 1700V Gate Drives are unique in offering Amantys Power Insight a two way communication protocol between the gate drive and a central controller, allowing the power stack designer to configure the gate drives in the target power stack to optimise the switching performance. Configurable parameters, under the control of the power stack designer, include the gate resistors (Rgon, Rgoff and Rgsoftoff), operating mode (two level or three level) and timeouts such as the fault lock out time and dead time. The gate drives can also record the faults that the gate drive has seen during operation. Using the Power Insight Adapter and the Power Insight Configurator these can be downloaded at a later date for analysis. 

The gate drives are suitable for 2-level and multi-level converters in a wide variety of applications such as traction, wind energy and medium voltage motor drives. The 1200V and 1700V Amantys Gate Drives are capable of driving IGBT modules from all manufacturers without any changes to the hardware of the gate drive. The Gate Drives are compatible with controllers designed to drive other commercially available gate drive products.
