Vanguard Expands High Current Power Inductor Line

Vanguard Electronics (APEC 2023 Exhibit #246), under the iNRCORE Family of Brands, is expanding their growing COTS+ product line of high current power inductors with the addition of the HCPI040, HCPI050, HPCI060, HCPI100, and HCPI120 series.

“We developed this expanded product line of compact, low profile, high current inductors in direct response to customer demand for high reliability electronics. These parts were specifically designed to maximize inductance while minimizing space and resistance. This allows resulting parts to be compact while offering superior inductor performance and efficiency compared to traditional designs. We will be expanding the ratings and sizes in the very near future.”

The expanded product line of high current inductors features magnetically shielded molded construction, a composite core, and tin-lead/RoHS terminations. With low DCR, they are capable of high current carrying capacity, perform with excellent efficiency, and maintain a superior ability to handle transients. The Vanguard line of high current inductors are designed to serve the military and avionics markets and are typically used in DC/DC converters commonly found in aircraft, ground vehicles, missiles, radios, and radar systems.

Each inductor in the line features a standard tolerance of 20 percent, a temperature rise @ rated current of less and or equal to 40° Celsius and an operating temperature range of -55° to 125° Celsius.
