MPS’ “Best Of 2017” Mechanical Components FeatureLeave a Comment
As 2017 comes to a close, we’re highlighting some of our best products that we’ve shared with you over the past 12 months! These great features (& more!) will be available for your specifications come 2018 too… Don’t miss out!
If you’re looking for a high-power inductor with a quick turnaround time for design approval, you’ve found the right spot. Our HWI57A2 and H1300 series models can help you test your capabilities without the hassle of waiting for a full custom design. Avoid NRE’s, tooling, and long lead times with our ideal-for-your-requirements components. Their modular design allows you to connect each in series or in parallel for higher inductance and/or current.
Here are some of the advantages to keep in mind:
- Units are semi-customizable
- Lead connections can be optimized
- Thermal potting available in 1,2, or 3 w/mk depending on requirements & targeted cost
- Units arrive ready to bolt down, connect, and install
- No need for an NRE
- Shorter lead times than other fully customized inductors
Another high power inductor line that we shared this year: the HWIA2918S High Current HEW Flat Wire Inductor. Characteristics include:
- Board level, surface mount components
- High Current HEW™ Inductor in low-profile compact form
- Inductance Range: 3.3 µH to 15 µH
- Very low DCR
- True 30 Amp handling capability on the wire
- Dummy 3rd pin for mounting stability
As you’re designing keep in mind that our engineers are more than that. They are experts of the inductors, magnetics, battery, and energy fields, no matter what industry you’re purposing! We serve: automotive, industrial, medical, military, aerospace, telecom, and consumer electronics — and that’s only naming a few!
MPS is no stranger to quality and efficiency when it comes down to you high-power magnetics. Our continuous goal is to find ways to push the envelope when it comes to magnetic designs. The aim is to provide our customer with the most optimized solutions. When developing our high power standard product lines, we strive to improve both the efficiency and heat dissipation of our parts. MPS engineers understand that quality, compact size, and low DCR are crucial requirements for our customer base.
That’s why we’ve created series like the HWI34. Here’s a closer look at its profile:
- Low profile, small footprint, compact form
- Inductance Range 4.7 uH to 29uH
- Exceptionally low DCR
- Great heat dissipation
- True 45-55 Amp wire handling capacity
- Powered cores with distributed gap for soft saturation
- For high-temperature environments – up to 125°C ambient (max temp 180C)
- Higher current available
- Different mounting available
We look forward to new product developments in the upcoming year.
Keep an eye out for our next entry on what is to come throughout 2018. We can’t wait to implement our own creations alongside those of our customers as well!
