Automotive-grade through-hole inductor replaces larger models
Able to operate at up to +155 degrees C, the Vishay Dale IHXL-1500VZ-5A is an automotive-grade through-hole inductor that delivers a 420A saturation current for 30 per cent inductance reduction. It is supplied in a compact 1500 case size. The inductor offers low typical direct current resistance (DCR), down to 0.12mOhm and continuous high temperature operation up to +155 degrees C, making it suitable for the automotive environment.
The inductor’s shielded, composite construction enables a compact size of 38.1 x 38.1 x 21.9mm to support up to 235A of continuous DC current. This allows the IHXL-1500VZ-5A to replace much larger and more expensive devices in high current input filters and 12, 24 or 48V DC/DC converters, says Vishay. Typical applications are switching regulators, differential mode and boost power factor correction chokes, and battery charging systems. The through-hole lead configuration can be modified at the customer’s request to accommodate a bolt-on or weld termination.
The IHXL-1500VZ-5A handles high transient current spikes without hard saturation. The inductors are RoHS-compliant and halogen-free and provide high resistance to thermal shock, moisture, and mechanical shock.
Samples and production quantities of the IHXL-1500VZ-5A are available now, with lead times of eight to 10 weeks.
Vishay manufactures a portfolio of discrete semiconductors and passive electronic components for designs in the automotive, industrial, computing, consumer, telecommunications, military, aerospace, and medical markets.
