Mankel-Engineering has worked together with TDK and Infineon Technologies to develop an extremely compact motor inverter. It has a modular design and is based on standard components, resulting in a cost-effective solution for a wide range of drive tasks for e-mobility and industrial electronics.
The new inverter features a wide input voltage range from 240 V DC to 475 V DC and offers a peak power of 120 kW at 400 VDC. To improve EMC, all of the inverter’s electronics, connections and feedthroughs are installed in a shielded aluminum housing, which also integrates the liquid cooler on the underside. This is used for cooling the IGBT module as well as the passive components. The maximum coolant supply temperature is 65 °C, which is common in the automotive industry. In addition to the version with a DC link voltage of 500 V, there is also an 850 V version. The inverter is ready for immediate use thanks to the software package with a GUI (Graphical User Interface) developed in-house.
