Vishay Intertechnology, Inc. has introduced a new, automotive-grade through-hole inductor that delivers a 420 A saturation current for 30 percent inductance reduction in a compact 1500 case size.
For automotive applications, the Vishay Dale IHXL-1500VZ-5A offers an extremely low, typical DCR that’s down to 0.12 mΩ, along with continuous high-temperature operation to +155° C.
The shielded, composite construction of the AEC-Q200 qualified device enables a compact size of 38.1 X 38.1 X 21.9 mm to support up to 235 A of continuous DC current. This allows the IHXL-1500VZ-5A to replace much larger and more costly competing solutions in high-current input filters and 12/24/48 V DC/DC converters for switching regulators, differential mode, and boost power-factor correction chokes, as well as battery charging systems.
The through-hole lead configuration can be modified at the customer’s request to accommodate a bolt-on or weld termination.
The IHXL-1500VZ-5A handles high transient current spikes without hard saturation. RoHS-compliant, halogen-free, and Vishay Green, the device provides high resistance to thermal shock, moisture, and mechanical shock.
