A new AEC-Q200 qualified inductor that is claimed to be the industry's first to offer a continuous current rating of 125 A has been introduced by Vishay Intertechnology. For automotive and industrial applications, the Vishay Dale IHXL-2000VZ-5A features a 190A saturation current for 20 % inductance reduction and continuous high temperature operation to +155 °C.
Mounting options for the device include through-hole, solder, welded, or bolt-on.
The device released today is optimised for electric vehicles (EV), hybrid electric vehicles (HEV), solar, and wind power applications.
With dimensions of 50.8 mm by 50.8 mm by 21.5 mm, the IHXL-2000VZ-5A's 2000 case size is the largest available for a composite inductor.
The inductor features an effective filtering frequency range up to SRF (13.1 MHz for 2.2 µH), very low DCR down to 0.21 mΩ typical, and nominal inductance of 2.2 µH, with additional inductance values to be offered in the future.
The IHXL-2000VZ-5A handles high transient current spikes without hard saturation. Packaged in a 100 % lead (Pb)-free shielded, composite construction that reduces buzz noise to ultra low levels, the inductor is specified for an operating temperature range of -55 °C to +155 °C, with high resistance to thermal shock, moisture, and mechanical shock.
The device is RoHS-compliant, halogen-free, and Vishay Green.
