Rutronik adds new automotive power inductor from KOA to portfolio

January 10, 2013 // By Paul Buckley
KOA has launched the new wire-wound, unshielded power inductor of the LPC4545 series. The small-sized 4 mm inductor (4.1x4.6 mm) allows a higher rated DC current and has a lower DC resistance than 6 mm inductors.

The LPC4545 series is optimized for excellent solderability, robustness and reflow soldering. An automated visual solder inspection of the side electrodes is possible.

The available inductance values from 1 µH up to 2200 µH with tolerances down to ±10% cover a wide inductance range. Due to the operating temperature ranging from -40°C up to +125°C, the inductor fits in a broad range of applications, for example LED lighting, power supply circuits, car audio, navigation and antenna circuits, DC/DC converters, body control, motor control for power windows, sunroofs, doors etc. The power inductors are tested according to AEC-Q200 requirements, PPAP documentation is available.   
The LPC4545 series is now available at distributor Rutronik.
