Through-hole inductor packs a 420 A saturation current into compact 1500 case size

13 January 2021

Vishay Intertechnology Inc. has unveiled a new through-hole inductor that delivers a 420 A saturation current for 30% inductance reduction in a compact 1500 case size. For renewable energy, industrial and telecom applications, the Vishay Dale IHXL-1500VZ-51 offers very low typical direct current resistance down to 0.12 mΩ and continuous high temperature operation to 155° C.

The shielded, composite construction of the device enables a compact size of 38.1 mm by 38.1 mm by 21.9 mm to support up to 150 A of continuous DC current. This allows the IHXL-1500VZ-51 to replace much larger Source: Vishay Intertechnology Inc.Source: Vishay Intertechnology Inc.competing solutions in high current input filters and DC/DC converters for high temperature industrial and solar and wind power applications, in addition to switching regulators, differential mode and boost power factor correction chokes, and telecom base station power supplies.

The IHXL-1500VZ-51 handles high transient current spikes without hard saturation, offering soft saturation of 20% at 195% of rated current. RoHS-compliant, halogen-free and Vishay Green, the device provides high resistance to thermal shock, moisture and mechanical shock.

Samples and production quantities of the IHXL-1500VZ-51 are available now, with lead times of eight to 10 weeks. Pricing for U.S. delivery starts at $7.50.
