API Delevan, a manufacturer of magnetic components for RF and power applications, now offers three SMD (surface-mount) power inductors with the highest reliability rating available after achieving a “T” Level reliability rating.
The MILP1812, MIL4922 and MIL8532 meet all military QPL requirements, and the ruggedized molded and leaded construction is proven against MIL-STD-202 mechanical vibration, moisture resistance, and DWV testing. All “T” Level inductors are thermally shocked for 25 cycles, burned-in for 96 hours, and are x-ray inspected before customer delivery.
High-saturation ferrite core materials and thick AWG size wire offer these inductors higher operating power along with maximum operating efficiency, resulting in a cooler running product. Numerous inductance value options are available for maximum flexibility in the design of power supplies, line filters, and EMI chokes.
Qualification to “T” level represents the most dependable off the shelf inductors available in the industry for use in high reliability applications, including space applications, medical instrumentation, down-hole oil and gas systems, and transportation industries.
