February 2021 – IXYS UK Westcode Gate Turn-off Thyristors

Published on: 17/02/2021

Introducing IXYS UK Westcode’s GTO Thyristors

IXYS UK Westcode Gate Turn-off Thyristors by GD Rectifiers

IXYS UK Westcode, now part of Littelfuse, offers a broad range of high specification devices with voltage ratings to 4.5Kv (2.8kV DC link) and controllable current ratings of up to 4kA are available to meet the toughest demands in applications such as traction propulsion and auxiliaries, AC industrial drives, FACT’s and active VAr controllers. Offering both symmetrical devices for applications with a reverse blocking requirement e.g. current sourced inverters and asymmetric blocking devices for applications where no reverse blocking requirement exists such as voltage sourced inverters.

Gate turn-off thyristors are still the component of choice when it comes to very high power converters and IXYS UK Westcode remains totally committed to this technology for the foreseeable future with an active program for continues product improvement.
