Vishay Intertechnology, Inc. has launched a new automotive-grade through-hole inductor that provides a 420A saturation current for 30% inductance reduction in a compact 1500 case size. For automotive applications, the Vishay Dale IHXL-1500VZ-5A provides very low typical DCR down to 0.12mOhm and continuous high-temperature operation to +155C.
The shielded, composite construction of the AEC-Q200 qualified device offers a compact size of 38.1mm x 38.1mm x 21.9mm to support up to 235A of continuous DC current. This allows the device to replace far larger and more expensive competing solutions in high current input filters and 12V, 24V, 48V DC-DC converters for switching regulators, differential mode and boost power factor correction chokes, and battery charging systems. The through-hole lead configuration may be altered at the customer's request to provide a bolt-on or weld termination.
The new device handles high transient current spikes without hard saturation. RoHS-compliant, halogen-free, and Vishay Green, the device gives high resistance to thermal shock, moisture, and mechanical shock.
