GOWANDA, N.Y.—A new series of non-magnetic RF thru-hole (leaded) inductors from Gowanda Electronics is suited for use in medical imaging equipment and other applications where magnetic materials must be avoided, the company said in a release.
Gowanda Electronics is a designer and manufacturer of high-performance inductors and magnetic components for demanding RF and power applications. The company designed its
28MG series to address the market need for non-magnetic inductors that could achieve inductance values of up to 18 µH for use in magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) equipment, specific types of X-ray equipment, and other applications where the presence of magnetic materials could compromise system performance, according to the release.
Applications for the 28MG series are reported to include telecommunications, security systems, instrumentation, laboratory analysis equipment, aviation equipment, navigation equipment, and electronic test equipment.
The performance range provided by the 60 discrete parts within the 28MG series includes inductance from 1.2 µH to 18 µH, DCR Ohms from 0.079 to 4.15, and current rating mA DC from 315 to 2400. All of Gowanda’s non-magnetic surface mount and thru-hole inductors, including this new 28MG series, are reported to provide relative permeability of less than or equal to 1.00003.
Operating temperature range for the 28MG series is -55°C to +125°C. The 28MG inductors are epoxy encapsulated for environmental protection and superior strength to withstand all types of reflow soldering. Standard terminations are SnPb; RoHS-compliant terminations are provided when “LF” is specified.
Gowanda Electronics designs, manufactures, and supplies precision electronic components for RF, microwave, and power applications. Components from the company include standard off-the-shelf and custom-designed inductors, chokes, coils, conicals, solenoids, toroids, transformers, and magnetic devices, in surface mount and thru-hole configurations. Applications for the components are said to include use in industrial automation and control equipment; communication equipment; instrumentation; medical and diagnostic equipment and devices; and test and measurement equipment.
