Infineon Technologies is expanding the product portfolio of the IGBT modules with the EconoPIM 3 package. The current rating of the module is thereby increased from 100A by 50% to 150A. The new power modules serve the growing demand for higher power density within the same footprint. Typical applications are motor controls for drives in elevators, escalators, fans or pumps.

EconoPIM modules are characterized by a high integration of different functionalities. For example, each contains a three-phase rectifier, a brake chopper, a three-phase inverter and a NTC thermistor for temperature measurement, according to Infineon. With a blocking voltage of 1200V, the new EconoPIM 3 reaches a maximum current rating of 150A, which the company says is the highest current in the market for this design.

The housing is equipped with a base plate and corresponds to the industrial standard regarding dimensions. It can therefore be implemented as a drop-in replacement for already existing designs. When used in drives, the EconoPIM 3 allows up to 30% more output power with the same footprint, according to Infineon. The modules integrate the IGBT4 chip with Trenchstop technology.
