Gowanda Electronics announces that its SMP2512 series of surface mount, wirewound, ferrite core, moulded power inductors will be demonstarted at APEC, being held in Charlotte, North Carolina, 16th to 18th March, 2015. This new series addresses a market need for a specific combination of size and performance in the power electronics industry.
Gowanda Electronics’ SMP2512 series is designed for use in power applications requiring a specific surface mount size, nominally 0.25x0.10" and current rating performance 0.26 to 1.64ADC for an inductance range of 1 to 100μH with 5, 10 or 20% tolerance. 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 as well as 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/DC converters; bar code; instrumentation; laboratory analysis equipment; and security systems. It is specifically suited for use in automotive electronics, industrial process control equipment, medical diagnostic equipment and test & measurement equipment.
Technical specifications for products in Gowanda’s SMP2512 inductor series include: maximum DCR from 0.15 to 6.0Ω, saturation current of 0.195-1.23ADC and an operating temperature range from -55 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.
