MCR is a water-cooled thyristor rectifier that has been developed for use in the medium current range. The high power density, high reliability and small footprint characterize the MCR rectifier decisively as today's state-of-the-art rectifier design.
ABB rectifiers guarantee safe operation and reliable DC current supply to your plant and therefore make an important contribution to your economic success.
Best reliability data is achieved by using the 4-inch type technology and the resulting reduction in the number of components.
The thyristor firing gate-pulses are transmitted by fiber optical cables to the MCR rectifier. This gives unique system flexibility and operational security. Distances up to several hundred meters to the control electronics are easily possible.
ABB’s MCR product family portfolio consists of 3 different products:
