Vishay Intertechnology introduced a new 50A, 1200V phase control thyristor in a number of medium-power switching applications including line rectification, soft start motor control, and temperature control in UPS units, welding equipment, power converters, industrial battery chargers, and solid-state relays.
The VS-50TPS12L-M3 lower costs and save space in power switching applications and is available in a 3-lead through-hole package. The device’s TO-247 package features long leads of 20 mm for flexibility in PCB mounting.
The SCR is rugged and features a high surge current to 630 A. Reliable operation to a junction temperature of +150 °C is ensured with its glass passivation technology. A high dV/dt of 1000 V/µS provides increased EMI immunity.
The new SCR is RoHS-compliant and halogen-free. Samples and production quantities are available now.
