High Current Inductors

MPS Industries is a U.S.-based leading manufacturer of magnetic components, specializing in both standard and custom solutions. Our custom capabilities extend to our range of high current inductors, meeting the highly specific requirements of many systems.

Here is what you need to know about high current inductors, including information about high current inductors at MPS.

What are High Current Inductors?

High current inductors typically use a single winding (at MPS Industries, our high current inductors feature a single winding) made from insulated wire to control current flow and store energy. When a current shifts, a high current inductor provides consistent delivery of the current to electronic equipment.

High current inductors are a critical component of solar inverters, HVAC inverters, and server power supplies. Other inverters that commonly use high power inductors include bidirectional, string, and PV inverters.

High current inductors are important in these applications as they deliver reliable performance to many electrical components and improve performance by:

  • Increasing efficiency
  • Dissipating heat
  • Storing energy
  • Filtering low current ripples (this is also specific to high current chokes)

MPS Industries offers power inductors with a range of specifications, including current ratings, DC resistance, shielding, size, inductance range, amp handling capacity, and more to meet the needs of any application. We offer compact sizes and high current ratings to deliver optimal performance while conserving space. We also provide high power inductors with low DC resistance and excellent heat dissipation.

HEW Inductors and Traditional Inductors

Helical edge wound (HEW) inductors, often referred to as flat wire inductors, use a flat wire to reduce high-frequency losses. The coil is edge wound, which allows for more turns on a single layer, resulting in lower inter-winding capacitance and lower proximity effect.

There are many advantages of HEW inductors when compared to traditional round wire inductors, including:

  • Improved heat dissipation
  • Higher current handling in a smaller package
  • Higher efficiency
  • Lower capacitance and high SRF
  • Automated manufacturing allowing for greater consistency and reduced labor cost

At MPS industries, we have a large selection of HEW inductors, ranging from 7A to greater than 120A.

Custom High Current Inductors

At MPS industries, we design and manufacture custom high power inductors to meet the demands of any application for industries such as military and aerospace, telecommunications, medical, automotive, and more. Our high power inductors are commonly used as line reactors to reduce harmonics, provide line spike buffering, correct leakage inductance in low inductance motors, and add impedance to a line.
