Overview

This webinar will be broadcast at 9:00 am EST / 6 am PST / 3 pm CET

Since CO2 reduction has become a high priority in the industrial, consumer and automotive fields, mechanical motor drives are being replaced by smart, electrically controlled motors.

In applications like pumps and fans, a significant increase in efficiency is possible by using electrically controlled motors. However, achieving this requires a drive inverter which enables speed and torque control by adapting frequency and motor current. Therefore, power semiconductor switches are required. Infineon offers optimized technologies for the industrial drive application to enable cost satisfying solutions.

In the drives market a trend towards inverter integration to the motor can be seen. This reduces the need for expensive shielded motor cables and relaxes the requirement for moderate switching speeds. Besides the well-proven IGBT technologies, Infineon offers the new SiC MOSFET that includes a technology that enables better inverter integration. This is possible through low switching losses and especially low conduction losses during light load.

This webinar will present Infineon Technologies' wide range of solutions for industrial drive application.
