Power module offers 90-degree mounting capability

March 30, 2012 // By Paul Buckley
Vincotech is offering a line of power modules which is suitable for book-sized inverters and 19-inch rack-mounted power supplies with a 90-degree angle between the heat-sink and PCB.

Called flow90 and featuring pins arrayed at a 90-degree angle, these modules are available as standard products with CON, PIM, and PACK configurations.  Customized topologies for switching mode power supplies and battery chargers are also commonly used in this package. The concept removes the need for flexible PCBs. The use of flow90 modules utilize the PCB to its maximum and achieve small applications.

Featuring an integrated input rectifier, brake, and motor inverter, flow90PIM combines the benefits of a power module - isolation, good thermal coupling with the heatsink, and enhanced reliability - with the advantages of the 90-degree mounting option customarily used for discrete components.

The flow90 module claims to be the perfect fit for book-sized frequency inverters and 19-inch rack applications such as switching mode power supplies and battery chargers. With all its features the flow90 is the module of choice for many applications that can benefit of the 90-degree concept.
