The Perfect Material for Every Application - Low-Loss Inductive Components from SMP

Graben-Neudorf, Germany, September 2010. SMP Sintermetalle Prometheus (SMP) is presenting inductive components at this year's Electronica trade show in Munich, Germany. These components feature low-loss and good EMC characteristics and a space-saving design. Their cores consist of powder composites, which SMP specifically engineers for each application.

Depending on their application, they are constructed either as single-conductor chokes for high-current applications, individual chokes, choke modules or LC filters. They are used in inverters for wind turbines and photovoltaic plants, railway engineering, medical engineering as well as in drives and power electronics. SMP manufactures all components to application requirements using in-house developed powder composites. These parts offer a high energy storage capacity in a compact and cost-conscious design as well as reduced losses and good EMC characteristics.

SMP's Inductive components can be produced for frequencies of up to 200 kHz and currents of up to 1000 amperes. Their sizes range from 36 mm to 300 mm diameter and their weight from 50 g to 130 kg. All products are RoHS- and REACH-compliant and the materials used are UL-listed. To allow for a wide range of requirements, components can be made to all common international standards.
