Complete Thermal Solutions for Today’s Power Electronics

For effective heat transfer and cooling for high-performance electronics — often in enclosures and environments that make thermal management a challenge — the small size and reliability of Aavid Thermacore thermal solutions give you tremendous design flexibility, allowing you to create thermal solutions for motor control and transit applications to satisfy the performance requirements of all kinds of rugged environments.

Power Control Systems

power heat pipe thermal solutionSystem reliability and maintenance-free operation are the driving factors in selecting a cooling approach. Heat pipe thermal solutions, with their high performance-to-heat sink volume ratio, light thermal cold plate solutionweight and proven reliability, are ideal for cooling the power semiconductors that have revolutionized the control of motors in industrial applications. Aavid Thermacore's passive semiconductor cooling technologies are proven to protect and prolong the life of ultra-precise power semiconductors such as such as Insulated Gate Bipolar Transistors (IGBTs), Symmetric Gate Commutated Turn-Off Thyristor (SGCT), (SCGTs), Silicon Controlled Rectifiers (SCRs), Intelligent Power Modules (IPMs) and Thyristers. These devices, directly attached to the thermal management solution, often operate under harsh conditions — in applications including petroleum and chemical plants, mining, metal fabrication, paper mills, cement operations, water/wastewater facilities and electric power generation facilities.

Transportation and Traction

isolated-therma-charge-413Aavid Thermacore's power semiconductor thermal management solutions are proven to stand up to the harshest of environmental requirements.Thermacore's electrically isolated heat pipe heat sink assemblies have been "riding the rails" for more than 20 years, cooling the wheelset power electronics in electric locomotive applications. Whether the solution is designed for a main line locomotive or a mass transit application (such as subways and light rail), the thermal system must be reliable to stand up to vibration, climate extremes and physical wear and tear. Aavid Thermacore heat pipes thermal solutions have proven they can meet the challenge.

Aavid Thermacore also offers automotive system heat management solutions.

Power Supply

power supply systemsA highly efficient, cost-effective thermal control solution, such as heat pipes, is essential to the operation of uninterruptable power supply (UPS) systems in today's precise manufacturing environments. Thanks to Thermacore technology, engineers have more flexibility than ever in taking UPS systems to new levels of performance, because our thermal management solutions reliably meet the challenge of dissipating heat.
