90° mounting for ultra compact drives

Paul Boughton

Vincotech has a new housing size for 90° PCB mounting called flow90 0. The first product line to be equipped with this new housing is flow90PACK 0 featuring six-pack topology.

The flow90 0 housing follows up the flow90 1 housing that Vincotech rolled out so successfully a few years ago. The idea behind this design is to mount the power module at a 90° angle to the PCB, making it so much easier to connect the module to the heat-sink in case of limited space. Where other space-saving designs require expensive L-shaped heat-sinks, flow90 0 works with standard shapes. Mounting could not be easier - it simply clips into the PCB.

The flow90 0 module's DCB with 33 x 66 mm is the same size as that of a standard Vincotech flow 0 module. With the power and chip options being the same, it can be used for much the same range of products. The choice of layouts and topologies is limited only by the special pinning concept. The housing stands 33 mm tall and is 66 mm wide, making it the perfect package for mounting several modules in book-shelf sized systems.

The first product line to feature this new housing is flow90PACK 0 comprising 1200 V modules rated from 8 to 35 A. Samples and data sheets are available on request. Serial production is slated to commence in the second half of 2013. Other topologies are available on request.
