Well, something crazy happened! I emailed the pictures to myself on the phone, and they emailed... Oh yes, it also has reverse polarity protection, as well as a fuse, and overvoltage protection on the input. So you can put up to 60v on the 24v supply in backwards and nothing bad will happen, and you can put 60v in forwards on the 24v supply and nothing bad will happen, except for getting a new fuse. haha.

It should be able to drive IGBTs with up to around 16amp of current pulses, but I always use 3.3Ohm gate resistors. The 6 IXDN604si's are an upgrade. They are the more expensive ones with a metal underside so that you can put more power into each isolated supply. Of course, it's not needed unless you are using 1200v 600amp IGBTs, but it's nice that it's available. They stay very cool.
