6500 V thyristor disc series
Discover our Silicon Controlled Rectifiers (SCRs) for medium-voltage soft starters
The 6.5 kV thyristor disc series consists of four robust and powerful disc device types developed for the special requirements of medium-voltage soft starter applications. All devices are designed for high surge current capability. Optimized switching behavior allows easy scaling of soft starters for different operation voltages by number of series connected devices.
The devices are also suitable for general-purpose line voltage rectifier applications, e.g. power supplies and standard drives.
Typical applications for medium-voltage drives
- Mining excavators
- Gas and Oil pumps
- Compressors for cooling stations
