TDK expands its range of coupled inductors

July 28, 2021

TDK Corporation (TSE:6762) has extended its range of coupled inductors to include the new EPCOS series B82472D6*. The nine series types cover an inductance range of 2 x 2.2 µH to 2 x 47 µH and are designed for maximum rated currents of 1.1 A to 4.3 A. The RoHS-compliant chokes are certified in line with AEC-Q200 and feature high saturation currents of up to 7.95 A. The magnetically shielded inductors have dimensions of just 7.3 x 7.3 x 4.8 mm and are designed for a wide temperature range of between -55 °C and +150 °C. Depending on the type, the chokes offer very high coupling factors of the two windings, from 97 to 99 percent.

These compact, robust components are useful in a wide range of applications, are ideal in various galvanically non-insulated DC/DC converter topologies such as SEPIC, Cuk and Zeta, and act as transformers in flyback and multi-output buck topologies. In the latter, coupled inductors provide a second output voltage. Furthermore, the components can act as common-mode chokes in power supply lines. The insulation voltage between the two windings is >500 V.

ROHM's KX132-1211 & KX134-1211 Accelerometers

Sponsored by Mouser Electronics and ROHM Semiconductor

Machine health monitoring is a key benefit in the Industry 4.0 revolution. Integrating data from sensors for vibration detection, motion detection, angle measurement and more can give a remarkably accurate picture of machine health, and timely warning of impending failure. In this episode of Chalk Talk, Amelia Dalton chats with Alex Chernyakov of ROHM Semiconductor about the key considerations in machine health monitoring, and how a new line of accelerometers for industrial applications can help.
