New SCR ceramic puk, with average current It(av)=4400A and blocking voltage up to Vd,rrm=800V
This new SCR has been specifically developed for very high current applications, such as:
double wye converters for electroplating (mainly for the very high current power supplies used in the steel industry for zinc- or tin-plating)
power supplies for electrolytic cells
any other low voltage - high current application.
Here below you can find the answers to the most common questions for this product:
WHAT IS IT?

It's a brand new SCR ceramic puk, with average current It(av)=4400A and blocking voltage up to Vd,rrm=800V

WHERE CAN IT BE USED?

It's ideal for high current power supplies for electroplating applications, or very high power supplies for electrolytic cells

WHAT PACKAGE DOES IT HAVE?

It's the new "slim" cold welded ceramic puk we recently introduced. It's 21mm thick, with 100mm max flange diameter

WHOM CAN YOU SELL THEM TO?

Your main targets are manufacturers of power supplies for (steel coil) electroplating applications

WHAT'S THE KEY ADVANTAGE OF THIS NEW PRODUCT?

This new SCR offers the highest average current per volume unit (27A per cubic cm, or 440A per cubic inch) at the lowest cost per amp (6 to 7 cents per amp, depending on quantities). Not enough yet to attract your interest? Then you may also consider all the extra side advantages offered by this SCR: more compact and cost effective clamps; lighter, smaller and therefore less expensive aluminum heatsinks; reduced overall volume and weight of the whole converter, which means higher design freedom and lower cost of the cabinet metal frame. Our experience is that all these extra advantages combined can be more valuable than the already significant cost saving on the SCR puk price alone.

DOES IT NEED ANYTHING SPECIAL TO BE USED?

Just check the data sheet for the correct design of the cooling system. Ask GPS for the ideal companion clamp that better fits your specific application. For what concerns the gate drive, we suggest the use of our field proven GT0001 pulse transformer module. Quite soon we shall introduce also a gate drive board that will make the design in of this SCR even easier
