Exide adopts SiC power chips


Company uses Navitas’ GeneSiC MOSFETs to increase efficiency and reduce temperature in industrial EV chargers

Navitas Semiconductor has announced that Exide Technologies’ next-generation, high-frequency fast chargers for industrial material handling equipment have adopted new, leading-edge GeneSiC power semiconductors to ensure reliability, safety, ease-of-use and optimal charging.

Exide Technologies makes lead-acid and lithium-ion battery storage solutions for the industrial and automotive markets .Exide’s high frequency chargers convert 220 V AC power to a battery-level voltage between 24 and 80 V for lead-acid and lithium-ion powered industrial vehicles. The 7 kW module uses GeneSiC G3R60MT07D (750 V) MOSFETs and GD10MPS12A (1,200 V) MPS Schottky diodes, with frequency-optimised architecture. The same platform can be upgraded to 10 kW, with 4 modules in parallel to provide 40 kW of reliable fast-charging power.

“Exide Technologies delivers complete, carefully controlled fast-charging with close system monitoring for critical material-handling equipment, running 24/7,” said Dominik Margraf, director Product Management Motion at Exide Technologies. “Navitas’ GeneSiC technology is easy-to-use, with excellent support, increased system efficiency, and cooler operation.”

“Exide’s ‘Energising a New World’ and Navitas’ ‘Electrify Our World’ missions are in perfect alliance,” said Ranbir Singh, Navitas EVP and architect of the GeneSiC technology. “Next-gen technology drives sustainability, and of course end-user satisfaction.”
