Mechanical Fixing The 2SD315A driver has two holes each 3.2 mm in diameter. They allow additional fixing of the driver for applications requiring very high resistance to shaking/vibration (railways, traction systems, electrically-driven vehicles, etc.).
  • The SCALE drivers from CONCEPT are based on a chip set that was developed specifically for the reliable driving and safe operation of IGBTs and power MOSFETs.
  • The name "SCALE" is an acronym for the most outstanding properties of the SCALE series of drivers:
  • SCALE = Scaleable, Compact, All purpose, Low cost and Easy to use.
  • The SCALE driver is a winning project of the competition organized by "Technology Center Switzerland 1998". And ABB Switzerland AG honored the development of the SCALE driver by distinguishing it as the "best power electronics project in 1998".
