Gowanda Electronics has introduced its SMP2512 Series of surface mount, wirewound, ferrite core, molded power inductors. This new series addresses a market need for a specific combination of size and performance in the power electronics industry. This series will be featured at APEC 2015, the Applied Power Electronics Conference, being held in Charlotte, North Carolina (USA), March 16-18, 2015.
Gowanda Electronics' SMP2512 Series is designed for use in power applications requiring a specific surface mount size - nominally 0.25 inch L x 0.10 inch W - and current rating performance - 0.26 to 1.64 DC A for an inductance range of 1 to 100 µH. These power inductors are epoxy-encapsulated for environmental protection and superior strength to withstand all types of reflow soldering.
The SMP2512 Series is specifically targeted for use in DC/DC converters and switching regulated power supplies. Rugged construction enables the SMP2512 inductors to be used in these applications as well as in many other power supply applications where current handling capability and durability are important.
Specific applications include microprocessor and distributed power applications - including power supplies, power regulators and DC to DC converters - especially in automotive electronics, industrial process control equipment, medical diagnostic equipment and test & measurement equipment. Other applications include use in bar code, instrumentation, laboratory analysis equipment and security systems.
Technical specifications for products in Gowanda's SMP2512 inductor series include: Inductance from 1 to 100 µH with 5%, 10% or 20% tolerance, DCR Ohms max from 0.15 to 6.0, Current Ratings from 0.26 to 1.64 DC A and Saturation Current from 0.195 to 1.23 DC A. Operating temperature range is -55°C to +125°C. Both Pb and RoHS (lead-free) versions are available. Inductors are provided via tape and reel packaging for ease of use in surface mount assembly operations.
Gowanda Electronics also offers custom designs in the SMP2512 Series in order to meet the specific requirements of an application.
