flexiBrute DRSSTC Half-Bridge Assembly 1.0

 flexiBrute DRSSTC Halfbridge Assembly 1.0

The half-bridge or full-bridge switching circuit is the central power supply circuit in any SSTC or DRSSTC that delivers the high peak currents and energy required in an SSTC or DRSSTC system to produce those monster high voltage arcs. This SOT-227 based IGBT half-bridge board is designed for low-to-mid power DRSSTCs and SSTCs and capable of producing output arcs up to 5 feet in length. It utilizes two (2) SOT-227 packaged IGBTs and is designed to operate from a DC bus voltage of 400VDC. (If alternate transient voltage suppressors are utilized, operating voltage can be increased to the voltage rating of the IGBTs, which is typically 600V.)

These half-bridge assemblies contain the SOT-227 based IGBT half-bridge board as well as a professionally machined heatsink and two (2) 0.1uF, 2kV snubber capacitors which are used to suppress voltage transients. One (1) of the 0.1uF, 2kV capacitors is used as a primary strike transient suppressor and protects the half-bridge power electronics from secondary voltage strikes which may hit the primary coil. This capacitor is tied directly between the output of the half-bridge circuit and chassis ground via the heatsink.

These full-bridge switching assemblies can also be used in a wide array of applications including power supplies, resonant charging systems, induction heating, and other similar circuits.
