Hello friends! I hope you all will be absolutely fine and having fun. Today, I am going to give you an elaboration on Introduction to 20N60. 20-N-60 is basically a power Metal Oxide Semiconductor Field Effect Transistor (MOSFET). Power MOSFET is a device that can handle a specific level of power. I have already shared information about MOSFET in my previous tutorials e.g. Introduction to 75N75, SG3524, 50N06, IRFZ44N, C945 and TL072. Before going into the details of this article you must have a look at these articles. They will result in the better understanding of this article.
MOSFET family is divided into two categories. P-channel MOSFET and N-channel MOSFET. 20-N-60 belongs to the N-channel MOSFET. It is based on United Technologies Corporation (UTC) technology. This technology is used in order to provide minimum on state resistance. It also provides the fast switching applications at different places. 20-N-60 has a lot of amazing features. These features include capability of handling higher currents, higher switching speed, low on state resistance and many more. It has a wider range of real life applications associated with it. Its applications area include DC chopper, servo motor drivers, AC motor control speed, Uninterruptible Power Supply (UPS), switch mode power supply, resonant mode power supply etc. The further detail about the basics of MOSFET 20-N-60 will be given later in this tutorial.
Introduction to 20N60
20N60 belongs to the family of N-channel MOSFET. Its basically a power MOSFET that means it can handle certain levels of power. Its working principle is based on UTC technology. It provides the fast switching application and the minimum on state resistance as well. handling of high current, high speed of switching and low on sate resistance are its major features. Its real life applications include servo motor drivers, UPS, speed control of AC motor and many more. 20-N-60 is given in the figure shown below.
