High Current Planar Transformers
Gardena, CA (November 1st 2014) – MPS Industries introduces a new series of High Current Planar Transformers using our flat wire, helical winding construction. The planar design yields high efficiencies in a compact, low profile package size. Additionally, by incorporating the flat wire, helical wound coils, we are able to offer a wide selection of custom configurations with considerably shorter design lead times and lower startup and production costs than traditional planar designs. The coil structure also allows for excellent heat dissipation and high current handling capacity.
Our HP30 Series consists of Full Bridge Transformers with rated power from 500W to 1000W. A full range of custom designs is also available upon request.

Flat Wire Inductor Modules for Inverter Systems
Gardena, CA (July 1st 2014) – MPS Industries is releasing a line of flat wire, high current inductor modules for inverter systems. The new H1300 Series and HWI57A2 Series inductors are ideal for use in PV Inverter, String Inverter, and Bidirectional Inverter applications.
The flat wire coil construction offers superior thermal management and heat dissipation, which results in superior performance and reliability. The inductor modules are also potted in aluminum enclosures with thermally conductive potting material to further enhance thermal management, prevent vibration issues, and allow for easy mounting.
The H1300 Series features current rating over 100 Amps and the HWI57A2 Series features current rating over 200 Amps. Custom design is available up to 500 Amp current for inverter systems 20kW and up. Click here for full press release.

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.
