SiCCab Family FR

SiCCab Family Silicon Carbide Generator for Cable Manufacturing

The SiCCab family of power supplies corresponds to a range of oriented-application generator focused in cable processing by induction with a maximum total power 400 kW and frequencies
up to 100 kHz.


SiCCab generators family is intended for its use in pre-heating, postheating and degassing when manufacturing energy cables.


SiCCab generators are based on SiCtech core inverter technology that pushes the technological boundaries to the limits offering the most disruptive and advanced technology in the field of induction welders by using the ultimate power electronics technologies as Silicon Carbide (SiC) MOS Transistors, advanced DC link using antiferroelectric capacitors, ultrafast high isolation circuitry and advanced transistor driving circuits and fully digital controller all integrated in a PCB, allowing inverter efficiencies up to 99% @ 50 kHz and consequently very small and compact chillers.


The SiCCab family is based on SiCtech MF power modules that include in a PCB, a plug-able FPGA controller as well as the power section and a water cooled heatsink that features all the requirements needed in an induction heating application.

SiCCab generators ranges power from 50 to 400 kW. The supply voltage is 400 / 480 VAC ± 10 % and the system has integrated his own cooling system. As standard, SiCCab Family include the
Siemens PLC with communication capabilities via the industrial bus Modbus TCP IP. Optional are other industrial busses as Profinet, DeviceNet … and pyrometric control.

A highly interactive and
comprehensible HMI guides the user in any interaction with the generator as the starting up, the temperature cycle programming, the resonant frequency selection by the autotuning function, the matching of the load etc. and provides information on the status and working conditions of the generator at any time.

The SiCCab Family Features

SiCCab generators, with frequencies up to 100 kHz, integrate in the cabinet all the HW necessary for processing wires. The SiCCab generator integrates the power MF conversion HW as well as the resonant capacitor bank, cooling system that can be configured as Air/Water cooling system or water/water cooling system according customer’s needs and externally the heating inductors.
