10 Factors to Consider When Specifying a Custom Power Inductor

Posted by Bill Dull | August 30, 2021 | 0 Comments

Power inductors can be used to filter the current or convert the Voltage and current to a different Voltage and current. Applications range from small electrical appliances to large power grid systems. Inductors consist of wound conductive metal coils that generate a magnetic field when electricity flows through them. Inductors are essential in any application that needs to carefully control [...]
