Featuring Magnetics Kool Mµ®, MPP, High Flux, and XFLUX™ powder cores, this design utility aids in core selection for DC output inductors, input chokes, PFC (Power Factor Correction) inductors, high current inductors, and other energy storage devices. Design inputs include DC current, ripple current, full load and no load inductances, and more. Designs are simulated and modeled while providing the designer with complete wound core dimensions, estimated core and copper losses, temperature rise, and more. In addition to toroid shapes, an expanded range of material shapes are included such as Kool Mµ E Cores, Kool Mµ U Cores, and Kool Mµ segmented toroids.
Common Mode Filter Design
This tool allows designers to select an appropriate ferrite toroid material for common mode filtering applications. The program’s Help file aims designers to the optimal ferrite material, while still allowing the flexibility to accommodate user-chosen part numbers.
Current Transformer Design
This design utility aids the designer in specifying the optimum core based on a variety of different current sensing schemes; including Hall Effect devices, current transformers for switched mode power supplies, and traditional current transformers. Materials offered are Kool Mµ, MPP, ferrites, and strip wound core materials including 3% Si steel and Ni-Fe alloys.
