TT electronics BI Technologies Magnetic Components Division introduced a series of high power, low cost surface mount inductors. Designated the HM72 Series, these molded SMT inductors feature an operating temperature range up to 180°
C and a maximum temperature rise of 50°
The HM72 Series utilizes an assembled core structure with additional material molded into the design. The device offers a unique combination of high power handling, high temperature operation and low cost, enabling design engineers to specify it for demanding automotive power designs such as underhood converter applications.
The HM72 Series inductors are ideal for applications that require a surface mount device with high temperature operation, low acoustic noise and resistance to vibration, such as automotive systems and mobile computer power circuits. With a molded construction, coil vibration is eliminated and audible noise is minimized. The series features inductance values ranging from 0.12microH to 0.80 microH with an operating temperature range of "40°
C to 180°
C. Current handling capability is up to 35A.
