Through-hole inductors offer high saturation current

Vishay Intertechnology, Inc. has released two new automotive-grade IHTH high-current, high-temperature, through-hole inductors in the compact 1500 case size. These devices can replace larger and more expensive solutions in high-current filters for hybrid electric (HEV) and mild hybrid electric vehicles (MHEV).

For automotive applications, the Vishay Dale IHTH-1500MZ-5A with an inductance range of 0.47 µH to 4.7 µH, delivers high saturation current of 156 A and very low typical direct current resistance (DCR) down to 0.19 mΩ (0.19 to 1.13 µH), while the IHTH-1500TZ-5A, with an inductance range of 6.8 µH to 100 µH, offers saturation current of 106 A and typical DCR down to 1.1 mΩ (1.1 to 21.5 µH) .

Based ON IHLP technology, the shielded, composite construction of the devices enables a compact size of 38.1 × 38.1 × 19.81 mm. This allows the IHTH-1500MZ-5A and IHTH-1500TZ-5A to replace much larger and more expensive competing solutions in high current filters for 12 V/48 V hybrid electric (HEV) and mild hybrid electric (MHEV) vehicle output converters as well as off-road diesel injection drivers, catalytic pulse width modulation (PWM) heaters, and electrical motors.

Device specs include:

Both inductors handle high transient current spikes without hard saturation and offer “excellent” temperature conductivity via their housing, said Vishay.  They also offer continuous high temperature operation to 155 °C and are Rohs-compliant, halogen-free, and Vishay Green. The devices also provide high resistance to thermal shock, moisture, and mechanical shock.

Samples and production quantities of the IHTH-1500MZ-5A and IHTH-1500TZ-5A are available now, with lead times of eight to 10 weeks. Pricing for U.S. delivery starts at $7.80.
