Inductit offers a compact, high-performing inductor with an efficiency-enhancing shape and unique material properties


Höganäs has announced a new centre of excellence that will focus on the company’s range of metal powder based high performance inductors. The Höganäs Inductor Systems Centre of Excellence will be introduced at PCIM Europe 2018, in Nuremberg, Germany, where experts from the centre will be on hand to discuss Höganäs’ Inductit® inductor products.

The new centre is said to offer application development, swift design work, fast prototyping, testing and all the support needed to develop unique power electronics applications at the lowest total cost.

Inductit is a compact, high-performing inductor based on metal powder technology from Höganäs. By using iron powder with significantly improved magnetic performance, in combination with highly efficient Pot Core geometry, Höganäs has been able to reduce the inductor’s size and weight to make it more compact than any conventional solution.

Made using iron powder with significantly improved magnetic performance

Being made from iron-based recycled metal powders in a virtually zero waste process, the new inductor minimises the consumption of raw materials. Thanks to the efficiency-enhancing shape of Inductit and the unique properties of the material itself, performance is reported to be improved, resulting in drastically lower energy losses.

The compact inductor is set to pave the way for the production of slimmer, more streamlined inverters that can be fitted into smaller spaces and be more efficient.

PCIM Europe takes place June 5-7, 2018 at the Exhibition Centre Nuremberg.
