Stud Triac TC132-40-5AS ENERGITM is general purpose stud triac, also known as TS132-40-5. RMS on-state current IT(RMS)M40 ampere, repetitive peak forward and reverse blocking voltage VDRM/VRRM500V. Stud triac are designed to convert and control DC and AC currents. "Air-cooled heatsinks O series for stud devices" for thyristor cooling are also available to order.

Triacs, also known as Symmetrical Thyristors, can pass current in both directions. If a positive pulse is applied to the control circuit, only the positive half of the sinusoidal current (1 quadrant) will pass through the triac. If a negative opener current is applied to the control circuit, the triac will pass a sinusoidal current through the main circuit (3 and 4 quadrants).

Air heat sinks are used to cool the symmetrical thyristors. To provide reliable thermal and electrical contact with the heatsink a tightening torque Md must be observed during assembly. For better heat dissipation of thyristor during assembly, heat conducting paste is used (this is a recommendation and is not a prerequisite for installation).

Features: thyristors are supplied in stud design. Pin assignment: hard long lead - main lead 1 (conditional cathode), triac base - main lead 2 (conditional anode), hard short lead - control electrode. Triacs TC132-40-5 (TS132-40-5) (40A 500V) are used in DC and AC power circuits of electrical installations and in semiconductor power converters.

Triacs AS ENERGITM have the following features: low static and dynamic losses, wide values of VDRM/VRRM, extensive experience of using the devices in various industries, range of voltages from 100 to 9000 V and amperages from 10 to 15000 A, high resistance to thermal and electric cycling, natural or forced air cooling.

Installation recommendations for stud mount triacs:

Assembling stud thyristor with a heatsink

The reliability of heat transfer and electrical contact between the mating surfaces of the thyristor and the cooler over the entire temperature range is ensured by appropriate torque.

Before assembly you should perform visual inspection (1) contact surfaces for mechanical damages and wipe (2), soaked with alcohol (toluene, gasoline, acetone).

To improve the parameters of heat transfer it is recommended to lubricate (3) a thin layer of silicone thermal conductive paste before the assembly, which is not a mandatory condition for installation.

After installation, the fasteners (nuts and washers) must be additionally secured against corrosion.

Tips and recommendations for power thyristors:

The power thyristors should not be operated for long periods of time at their limit load for all parameters. In this case, the safety factor is determined by the required degree of reliability of the device.

Replace a failed power thyristor with a thyristor that matches the parameters of the one being replaced.

Supercooling must be provided when operating in an environment with an elevated ambient temperature.

Periodic cleaning of power thyristors and coolers to remove dust and contaminants is recommended to ensure proper heat dissipation.

Inductive current dividers (often twisted toroidal wire) should be used to equalize currents between power thyristors connected in parallel. The most popular connection methods are closed circuit, common coil circuit, or power thyristor. The efficiency of current dividers in this case is determined by the cross section of the magnetic wire.

Prevention of voltage unbalance when power thyristors are connected in series is achieved by using shunt resistors connected in parallel with each thyristor. Voltage equalization in transient conditions is provided by connecting capacitors in parallel to each thyristor.

Device under voltage

It is strictly forbidden to touch power thyristors under high voltage during operation.
