EMBEDDED FEATURES

PEN modules are truly ready-to-use building blocks, featuring:

  • IGBT-based NPC cell
  • DC bus capacitors
  • Current and half-bus voltage sensors
  • Integrated gate drivers
  • Onboard logic and protections (voltage, current, temperature, PSU)
  • Speed-regulated cooling fan (120w TDP)

This way, when building converters, the only missing elements are the inductive components, whose sizing always remains tightly linked to the application.

KEY BENEFITS

Easy-to-use

The modules contain everything you need to start working right away (sensors, logic, cooling,…). Combined with the BoomBox controller, they form a truly plug-and-play solution.

Robust

The PEN modules are designed with large margins to keep you safe. With over-sized semi-conductors, they are the trustworthy and loyal companions for any ambitious and early experiment.

Specialized

With their specific topology, PEN modules are ideal for studying NPC converters in details, whether in academic or R&D environments. They are the best way to build 3-level converters tidily and rapidly.

Safe

The onboard protections against overvalues guarantee that the module capabilities are never exceeded. You can therefore work safely, even if your controller doesn’t have the same level of protection as the BoomBox.

INTEGRATION OPTIONS

Flexible rack-mountable chassis (3U)

For those who appreciate the corresponding ease, imperix can provide pre-assembled chassis with power supplies and various other features. This way, modules remain easily accessible and can be easily put in (or taken out) of the chassis, hence facilitating topology alterations.

Fully-integrated enclosure (4U)

PEB modules can also be placed within a 4U enclosure that guarantees that no dangerous voltage can ever be reached, except using 4mm laboratory safety plugs. In 4U enclosures, imperix implements the same sideboard controller as for the 3U chassis, which here also comes with an LCD display.

Flexible rack-mountable chassis (3U)

PEB modules can be easily installed within a 3U rack-mountable chassis. For those who appreciate the corresponding ease, imperix can provide a pre-assembled chassis with supplies and a dedicated sideboard that is responsible for the temperature monitoring and variable-speed fan control. With such an approach, modules remain easily accessible and can be easily put in  (or taken out) of the chassis, hence facilitating topology alterations.

Fully-integrated enclosure (4U)

PEB modules can also be placed inside a 4U enclosure that guarantees that no dangerous voltage can ever be reached. In such a case, imperix not only implements a dedicated sideboard that controls the variable-speed fans and displays the temperature of each module, but also places easy-to-use 4mm laboratory plugs on the rear side of the enclosure. This way, flexibility can be maintained while simultaneously providing a safe and sound implementation.
