IRF1407 Transistor Explained / Description:
IRF1407 is an N Channel MOSFET available in TO-220AB package. It has many features like it contains Low RDS-On resistance capability which makes it possible to dissipate less amount of heat when the MOSFET is driving load. The max operating temperature of upto 175°C makes the transistor more reliable using on high temperature and also in high temperature surroundings. The high speed switching capability makes it ideal to use in applications where the designer require switching a load in nano seconds. The transistor also possesses better repetitive avalanche due to which it can withstand when the drain to source voltage rises from its limits. Moreover the transistor also possesses dynamic dv/dt rating.
The specs of the transistor is quite interesting the maximum drain to source voltage is upto 75V, max continuous drain current is upto 130A, max pulsed drain current is 520A and max power dissipation is 330W.
Although the transistor is primarily designed to use in electric motor integrated starter alternator and also in automobiles and vehicles 42V electrical systems but it can also be used in verity of other applications.
Where We Can Use it & How to Use:
As mentioned above it is primarily designed for auto or vehicle’s 42V electrical systems and electrical motor circuits but besides these uses it can also be used in wide variety of other applications such as power supplies and battery charging circuits etc.
Uninterruptible Power Supplies
Solar Chargers & Power Supplies
Other Battery Charger Circuits
Battery Management Systems Circuits
Safe Operating Guidelines / Absolute Maximum Ratings:
For getting long term performance the MOSFET should be used 20% below from its absolute maximum ratings. The maximum drain to source voltage is 75V so do not drive load of more than 60V. The maximum continuous drain current is 130A therefore so not drive load of more than 104A. Use a suitable heatsink with the transistor and always store or operate at temperature above -55 ° C and below +170 ° C.
