IGBT Half-Bridge Board (SOT-227)

DRSSTC Half-Bridge Board (SOT-227)

The half-bridge switching circuit delivers the high peak currents and energy required from your SSTC or DRSSTC to produce those monster high voltage arcs. This SOT-227 based IGBT half-bridge board is designed for low to mid power DRSSTCs and SSTCs and capable of producing output arcs up to 5 feet in length. It utilizes two (2) SOT-227 packaged IGBTs and designed to operate from a DC bus voltage of 400VDC. (If alternate transient voltage suppressors are utilized, operating voltage can be increased to the voltage rating of the IGBTs, which is typically 600V.) These half-bridge boards are also designed to be used as part of a four (4) IGBT full-bridge switching circuit which will double the output voltage and greatly increase the output power of your DRSSTC. These half-bridge boards are identical to those used in our miniBrute DRSSTC system. (Note: The IGBT half-bridge board kit comes with only one (1) polypropylene DC bypass capacitor - not two as shown in the images below.)
