The FSAM50SM60A and FSAM755M60A devices offer 50A and 75A ratings, respectively, and are made for the 5kW to 7.5 kW commercial and industrial inverter motor designs. They take up half the space of other solutions, with 60 ◊ 31mm dual inline packages. They transfer heat through direct bonded copper substrates. They come with six IGBTs, six freewheeling diodes, three HVICs, one LVIC and one thermistor. They have integrated sensorless control and temperature monitoring, plus an integrated thermistor for over-temperature condition monitoring. They offer switching frequencies up to 20 kHz. They are lead-free, meet or exceed the joint IPC/JEDEC standard J-STD-020C and are compliant with current European Union requirements.
Festo's BionicKangaroo combines pneumatic and electrical drive technology, plus very precise controls and condition monitoring. Like a real kangaroo, the BionicKangaroo robot harvests the kinetic energy of each takeoff and immediately uses it to power the next jump.
