Customizable Hardware & Mechanicals
MPS Industries is not just limited to electrical engineering. A big part of our work is customizing the mechanicals and hardware too. We facilitate electromechanical and thermal designs and can provide STEP files for your mechanical team.
Examples Of Hardware & Mechanicals:
- "Open-type" mounting: best for convection cooling at a lower cost

- Option of PCB cut-out version: low profile for board-level magnetic component
- Variety of connection options: bus bars, flying leads
- Vertical or horizontal mounting
- Temp sensors/thermocouple and thermal switches
The Right Wire For Your Needs
- HEW (helical edge wound): rated for 200C, transformers: option of combination/ interleaving flat wire and litz wire for lower leakage
- Flat aluminum wire: good for cost/weight for bulk orders, ex: aerospace applications
- High-strand count litz wire: molded to MW-79C (3000V) or higher voltage, resonance application
- Option of PCB cut-out version, low profile for board-level magnetic component

Magnetic Epoxy Shielded Inductors
Gardena, CA (March 1st 2014) - MPS Industries introduces a new line of surface mount power inductors featuring magnetic epoxy shielding as a lower cost alternative to conventional ferrite shielded inductors. By replacing the traditional ferrite shield with a magnetic epoxy resin, we are able to significantly reduce both material and labor costs, as well as improve production lead times.
With regards to performance, the coupling factor (K) of the magnetic epoxy inductors falls somewhere between that of ferrite shielded and unshielded inductors. These new inductors are offered with the same or similar overall dimensions and footprint as their ferrite shielded and unshielded counterparts and so provide a nice alternative, bridging the gap between the two.
Ideal applications for these lower cost inductors include DC/DC converter, computer, LED lighting, and various industrial and consumer electronics products.
Half Bridge LLC Resonant Transformers
Gardena, CA (October 1st 2013) - In today's energy conscious environment, electronic product manufacturers are focused on efficiency, as they are faced with the difficult task of continuously improving performance while consuming less power. To assist our customers with their energy conservation efforts, MPS Industries introduces two new LLC Resonant transformers (P6503 and P6504) that are designed to provide very high efficiency and very low power loss.
These transformers are ideal for use in conjunction with an upstream PFC circuit in applications that require maximum efficiency, such as the LLC resonant converter. The LLC resonant topology allows for zero voltage switching (ZVS), resulting in drastically reduced switching losses and significantly improved efficiency. MPS Industries' new half bridge LLC resonant transformers are ideally suited for such applications, and our team of highly experienced engineers are also ready to work with our customers to design custom solutions to meet individual needs.
