Fast HV Thyristor Switch, HTS 220-1200-SCR

Specifications

  • 22 kVDC @ 12 kA
  • Compact Design
  • Extremely High di/dt
  • High Surge Current Capability

Typical applications

Surge Generators
Crow Bar Circuits
Flash Lamp Drivers
Shock Wave Generators

These solid-state switches are designed for high voltage high peak current switching applications such as shock wave generators, flash lamp drivers, crow bar circuits and surge generators. The switching modules contain a large number of reverse blocking thyristors (SCR) with a special chip architecture for high surge conditions. Several hundred of these SCR's, each with its own low-impedance gate drive, are connected in series and in parallel to ensure the extreme di/dt of up to 24 kA/┬Ás. The safe and synchronous control of all SCRs is performed by a patented driver which provides also the high galvanic isolation necessary for high-side circuits and safety-relevant applications.
