Do we have to clean the diode prior to clamping in the assembly?

Katja Fröhlich, Communications Manager

ABB's answer

The contact surfaces have to be clean. However, they need no additional cleaning when they are stored in the original package. We recommend to wear gloves when mounting the devices into the clamping system.
Please also also see our Application Note "Mechanical clamping of press-pack high power semiconductors".
