INDUSTRIAL WELDING POWER SUPPLY SOLUTIONS

High Speed, High Efficiency, High Reliability, High Performance
Fairchild’s broad power portfolio offers energy and cost-saving solutions to meet the diverse range of low-, mid- and high-power welding inverter design requirements—high efficiency, high switching frequency while decreasing size and weight. Our high-end IGBT technology offers optimum performance where low conduction and switching losses are essential—even at high current levels. Rectifier provides low voltage drop as well as fast reverse recovery time and softness factor. Integrated FPS™ series enables the auxiliary (aux) power design to achieve lower standby power losses with compact size and reliability. Optically isolated gate drivers offer wide operating voltage range and high common-mode transient immunity. In addition, high-voltage gate drivers have excellent noise immunity and low power consumption.

Full-Bridge/Half-Bridge Topology for Single-(>20 kHz) and Three (<40 kHz)-Phase Inverters
• Excellent transformer utilization • Reduced inductor current ripple (by doubling the switching frequency)
