Board adapter 42

Board ADAPTER 42  

The Adapter 42 board is designed to connect the Skyper 42 driver (SEMIKRON, Germany). The parameters of the board can be adjusted, which allows you to adapt and optimize the used IGBT module. IGBT switching performance can be affected by user settings, such as changing the on and off speed.

The adapter boards provide the mechanical and electrical interface of the driver with the power modules; components that are specific to a particular IGBT are installed on them:

  • gate resistors Rgon, Rgoff;
  • Elements necessary to adjust the sensitivity and time constant of the DESAT protection circuit;
  • Elements necessary to adjust the switching delay time tdr.
