MK8 SCR Converter
Available from Pillar Induction
The MK8 is a voltage source inverter with a parallel tuned circuit. This range of power supply is designed as an economic and reliable solution for applications up to 750kW. The parallel tuned circuit keeps the high currents away from the inverter thyristors (SCR). The lower currents flowing into the SCR’s results in low power loss and high efficiency.
Control is by a combination of rectifier voltage control at lower power levels and inverter swept frequency control at higher power levels. This provides very controllable starting and excellent fault protection, along with constant output power over the entire heating cycle. Accurate and reliable control is achieved in extreme ambient conditions without the need for additional cooling.
