|Cu Double Cooling Fins (Option CF-D) for 100% more power
The image shows a HTS 220-1200-SCR (Fast
Thyristor Switch, 22kV /12 kA) with the new double fin option CF-D. The
double fin option allows 100% more power dissipation compared to the
standard option CF. A further cooling power improvement can be achieved in
combination with option CF-S (fins directly soldered to the power
semiconductors). Both options are applicable to any BEHLKE switch. Please
note, that option CF-D requires forced convection due its reduced cooling

|Fig. 2 Electrical Feedthrus for the cooling boxes
To facilitate the integration of non-DLC components, such as classical power electronic components and periphal circuit boards into a DLC cooling system, BEHLKE has now developed an extensive standard program of pressure proof cooling boxes for universal DLC cooling purposes. The cooling boxes have an inner height of 25 mm (1") and are ideal for printed circuit boards. The inner height can optionally be increased or reduced. The housings have at least 3 threaded holes G1/4 on each side. The G1/4 threads are used for the hose connectors and for the electrical standard feedthrus. Two hose connectors and screw caps are included in the supply. Electrical feedthrus must be ordered separately. The standard feedthru program includes various standard sockets (BNC, BNC-HT, SHV-NIM, LEMO etc.) as well as multiple single ended wires (up to 13 wires per feedthru). Any other customized feedthru can be realized. Board connectors with several hundred pins are possible. The standard housings are made from Delrin and Makrolon. PEEK, PVC and Aluminum are optionally available. Please click here for more information

|The internal safety and control electronics of the new PU2 unit.
The complete board
has three optical sensors for the fill level and the flow rate and two
independent thermo sensors for the temperature protection. The shut-down
of the external power electronics application to be protected is realized by
a (signal) relay with a passive NC contact. The speed of the external
radiator fan as well as the speed of the
motor depends on the neccessary
cooling power and is temperature-dependently controlled. The motor drivers
are liquid cooled. The control electronics is installed
in the coolant reservoir and is completely immersed in the PFPE
The housing of the PU2 is milled from billet Aluminum and can serve for heat-transfer purposes if attached to a sufficient heat sink. This heatsink can be a heat-conductive machine chassis, a large system housing or any large metal plate. In connection with the option IHE (internal heat exchanger) the heat resistance
of the pump housing is reduced to an absolute minimum. The combination of option IHE with a sufficient heat sink can replace the active radiator in low and medium power applications. Above 500 Watt power dissipation the pump unit is usually be combined with an external active radiator or a plate heat exchanger.
The pump unit is designed for system integration. It can easely be attached behind the front panel of a 19 inch system housing. In order to align the viewing window with a 19" front panel, the 6 mm (0.24") plastic front cover is replaced by a 3 mm (0.12") plastic spacer (included in supply). Aluminum spacers are available by Behlke if the 19" front panel is to be utilized as heat sink. A front fill port and a front drain for the coolant are provided.

NEW Universal control unit for HTS switches:
Behlke has developed a new control and driver unit for all HTS single, push-pull, AC and AC-push-pull HV switches. The control circuit is an important integral part of any solid-state switch and determines essentially the switching behaviour, the noise immunity and the long-term reliability of the switching module. The new control unit VC4 is a key component of the successful switch series HTS and reflects over 25 years experience in developing high voltage solid-state switches. Due to the extremely harsh electromagnetic environment caused by the high di/dt and dv/dt of the close load circuit, the electromagnetic compatibility (EMC) of the control circuit is of vital importance for the reliable function of the whole switching module. There is always an electromagnetic coupling between the induction loop areas of the high-voltage circuits and the control circuits. These induction loop areas cannot be avoided, but they can be minimized by a careful circuit design.
By using state-of-the-art components and advanced proprietary circuits, the VC4 control circuit could now be reduced to a built volume of less than 20 ml, which improves the noise immunity essentially. A further EMC improvement has been realized by utilizing a sixfold multilayer PCB with signal tracks between the groundplanes. A new input filter allows a reliable control with unshielded input wiring up to a certain length even under worst case EMC conditions.
The 5 volt auxiliary voltage input accepts now 4.5 to 5.5 V supply voltage. Short-time over voltage of up to 100% as well as massive positive and negative transients are widely uncritical. The auxiliary power consumption has been reduced by about 30 to 60%. The new VC4 has four temperature sensors and several under- and over-voltage detectors. A very fast inhibit input (TTL) allows the connection of an external over current sensor or spark-over sensor for an active switch protection. In case of a logical “L” at the inhibit input, the switch will be turned-off within 50 to 250 ns (depending on the switch model) and will be locked for at least two seconds or as long as the disturbance lasts. The new VC4 has also a fault signal output, which indicates over-temperature, false auxiliary supply and input over frequency. The operation status and the control pulses will be indicated by LED’s. Even nanoseconds control pulses are made visible. A high sophisticated control pulse treatment ensures always the correct control of the high-voltage semiconductor stack under all circumstances, even under worst case EMC conditions. High currents can be switched on and off safely, even if the control pulse is unsufficient (e.g. too short, too slow or too low) or if it is disturbed by EMI due to sub optimal application circuits.
The VC4 is designed to be utilized in all switch models with variable on-time. This standardization allows a mass production with all the well known benefits including a professional quality control. Whatever your order quantity is, even if you order just the prototype of a customized switch, you will always have a control and driver circuit of the highest technical standards. The VC4 can drive up to 1000 big power MOSFET, IGBT or MCT with a Ciss of 10 nF and a Qg of 300 nC each ( ! ), but it can be used also for our smallest switching modules with only a few low capacitance MOSFET. Single switches and push-pull switches with low capacitance FET’s can be driven even at a repetition rate of up to 3 MHz (driver cooling option C-DR required). In the smaller switching modules, the VC4 is directly adapted to the HV switch mother board. In bigger switches with higher built volume (e.g. switches above 30 kV) the VC4 will be inserted as a removable unit for the purpose of possible up-dates.
Right: A batch of VC4 mini boards fresh from our SMD production line. The batch will be separated by a special pneumatic parallel cutting machine to exclude any SMD damage by torsion force. Below left and middle: The separated mini boards, partly completed with classical wired components. The completed control unit consists of 69 active part components (hereof 17 IC's) and 152 passive part components. Below right: The VC4 as a removable unit 38 x 38 x 16 mm (1.5 x 1.5 x 0.63").
