MOSFETs and IGBTs are power transistors used to control the output on many servo drives. The type of power transistor selected is based on the voltage and current requirements of the drive. MOSFETs are suited for applications less than 250 V, while IGBTs are suited for higher voltage and higher current applications.
- The latest advancements in MOSFET and IGBT technology have allowed the devices to get much smaller and generate less heat
ADVANCED Motion Controls' Capabilities
- Both MOSFETs and IGBTs are used in off-the-shelf and custom servo drives
- Smaller device sizes have led to the possibility of smaller servo drives, such as the µZ series
