Exide picks SiC for industrial vehicle charging
Battery maker Exide Technologies has switched to silicon carbide transistors for a 7kW industrial electric vehicle charger.
Its chargers convert 220Vac to between 24 and 80V for lead-acid and lithium-ion powered vehicles.
The 7 kW unit uses 750V mosfets (G3R60MT07D) and 1.2kV Schottky diodes (GD10MPS12A) from Navitas, and the same SiC platform is good for 10kW, and could be paralleled to 40kW, said Navitas.
