Industrial reference design can be re-used for customisation

The reference design is a general purpose motor drive which features a nominal power of 22kW and can be operated directly on a 380 to 480V three-phase grid. The design can be fully re-used for customisation to evaluate the company’s products under real operating conditions.

The design combines Infineon’s EasyPIM 3B IGBT7 module FP100R12W3T7_B11 for high current and high-power density, the EiceDRIVER Compact 1ED3131MC12H for optimal EMI performance and low power losses as well as the XENSIV current sensor TLI4971-A120T5 for measuring high currents with minimal power loss. The CoolSiC MOSFET IMBF170R1K0M1 with a blocking voltage of 1700V is the central part of the auxiliary power supply. The system also contains two microcontrollers which are the XMC4800 for control and the XMC4300 for communication. There is also a a pre-installed software package for motor control.  

The system is optionally available with a 3D-printed housing, which encloses all electronic components and the cooling system. The housing includes a touchscreen to display current operation conditions, as well as EtherCAT and USB interfaces for external connections.

The REF-22K-GPD-INV-EASY3B reference design is suitable for applications like pumps, fans, compressors, and conveyor belts.
