3300V Gate Drive


The 3300V Gate Drive from Amantys offers 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 drive 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), gate-emitter capacitor (Cge), operating mode (two level or three level) and timeouts such as the fault lock out time and dead time. The 3300V Gate Drive also features multi level desaturation detection for improved protection of the IGBT module. 

The gate drive 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 drive is 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 3300V Gate Drive is 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.
