Four new FRED Pt Gen 5 600V Ultrafast rectifiers in the TO-244 package are now available from Vishay Intertechnology, Inc. The optimum conduction and switching loss trade-off for devices in the 240A, 300A, 480A, and 600A classes is offered by rectifiers. The company’s rectifiers are intended to increase the effectiveness of resonant, hard-, and soft-switched, or medium frequency power converters.
These devices offer reduced conduction compared to rival FRED Pt Ultrafast solutions in the TO-244 package while preserving low reverse recovery losses. As a result, industrial applications like high-frequency welding and ballast water management systems operate more efficiently. The VS-VS5HD240CW60, VS-VS5HD300CW60, VS-VS5HD480CW60, and VS-VS5HD600CW60 offer low Qrr down to 260nC typical, quick recovery time down to 52ns, and high-speed, high-temperature operating for these applications.
