Looking for Data on Toshiba S5977 Diode power Module 4B GTR IGBT

Started by amdx July 11, 2020
I have a few of these and don't know exactly what they are and can't 
find a schematic of the internals or a data sheet.
  I've tried about 5 different search engines and different search terms 
without success.
Anyone with better google foo than mine?
These first 5 pictures show the part.

The differing terminal capabilities don't jive with a diode module. Toshiba case size 2-109A4A is found on 'GTR' modules that harbour 500V/1.2KV, 200A/400A IGBTs. Darlingtons have a fifth (signal) terminal on the same body shape. Emitter in the middle (M6) Kelvin terminal at extreme end (M4) Typical part numbers: MG400H1US1 500V 400A MG300N1US1 1KV 300A MG300Q1USI 1.2KV 300A They all have internal anti-parallel (CE) diodes built in. If it's a fet, it'll have a lower saturation voltage, at lower current. If it's an SCR or triac, it'll latch. RL

You may be on to something there, I got the "Diode power Module 4B GTR IGBT" from the ebay pictures put up by 'Southernsurplusinc.com. Southern Surplus may not know what they have. Still looking for the internal schematic. btw I also have some MG300J1US1 the 600V, 300amp version. And MG200J2YS1 these are a half bridge, 600V 200Amp.

Well, you can do simple tests with a multimeter and a 1A bench supply to confirm terminal functions and type. Any leakage on the 'base' terminal, or drain terminal, means it's duff. All the part numbers mentioned are bog-standard switching-speed IGBTs. RL
