PPM Power, specialist supplier of power electronics, high voltage and pulse power components has signed an agreement with Japanese manufacturer SanRex to distribute their power semiconductor modules in the UK.
As well as the new SiC based MOSFETs, SanRex also manufacture schottky diodes and thyristor modules operating up to 2200 Volts and 500Amps. Typically these power modules are used in applications such as welding, induction heating, motor drives, battery chargers and grid connected inverters.
“SiC MOSFETs have offered compact, high speed, very low loss power switching for a while now,” says Phil Surman, sales director at PPM Power.
“SanRex have developed their own best-in-class die technology as well as compact, rugged transfer-moulded packages that deliver the next leap in performance at a system level. With SiC MOSFETs and silicon based diode modules from SanRex, PPM Power now has semiconductor product offerings for mainstream power electronics as well as very high performance applications.”
