Complete Thermal Solutions for Today’s Power Electronics

For effective heat transfer and cooling for high-performance power electronics — often dissipating hundreds to thousands of watts of waste heat within electronic enclosures that make thermal management a challenge — the small size, high efficiency and reliability of Aavid Thermacore's passive and active thermal solutions give you tremendous design flexibility. And their versatility helps you create designs for motor control and transit operation in all kinds of rugged environments.

Power Control Systems

heat pipe thermal solution for power electronicsHeat pipe thermal solutions, with their low cost, light weight and lack of moving parts, are ideal for cooling the power semiconductors that have revolutionized the control of motors in industrial applications. Aavid Thermacore semiconductor cooling technologies help protect and prolong the life of ultra-precise power semiconductors such as such as thyristors, Insulated Gate Bipolar Transistors (IGBTs), Symmetric Gate Commutated Turn-Off Thyristors (SCGTs), Silicon Controlled Rectifiers (SCRs) and Intelligent Power Modules (IPMs). These devices operate — often under harsh conditions — in petroleum and chemical plants, mining, metal fabrication, paper mills, cement operations, water/wastewater facilities and electric power generation. Heat management for power semiconductors is necessary in nearly all thermal technology applications. In addition, Aavid Thermacore offers active thermal solutions with liquid cold plates that provide additional benefits when air cooling is insufficient.

Transportation and Traction

power-electronic-thermal-solutionThermal management systems in most mass transit systems (such as subways and light rail) must be reliable to stand up to vibration, climate extremes and physical wear and tear. Aavid Thermacore heat pipes provide reliable, durable performance, electrical isolation and conditioning and electronic control system protection for mass transit applications around the globe, in all types of climate and weather. 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 Aavid 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.
