TDK Corporation has announced its new EPCOS leaded RF chokes with high current capability.
“The series with designation LBC+ offers components for rated currents of up to 4450 mA at saturation currents of up to 7700 mA. This corresponds to an increase of up to 80 percent compared to previous versions. The range of inductance values of the E12 series extends from 1.0 µH to 470 µH. These RoHS-compatible inductors are suitable for an operating temperature range of -55 °C to +125 °C.”
The chokes are 9.2 mm long and have a diameter of 6.5 mm. Important benefits of these new chokes include RoHS compatiblility, high current capability up to 4450 mA, a flame-retardant coating, and availability of axial and radial types. Functions of the chokes include suppressing noise, storing chokes in DC-DC converters, and serving as LED and energy saving lamps.
