TDK’s latest series of EPCOS current-compensated ring core power line double chokes, the RoHS-compatible B82724J8 N040 series, features a voltage rating of 800 Vdc or 250 Vac in continuous operation. They offer a range of inductance values extending from 0.5 mH to 47 mH and rated currents between 1.6A and 10A, depending on the inductance. Their rated ambient temperature without derating is +70 °C. For the additional attenuation of symmetrical interferences, the power line chokes feature a stray inductance of around 0.5% of the rated value. The dimensions for all types are 18.5 mm x 31.3 mm x 33.2 mm.
The new ring core chokes are manufactured using a flame-retardant plastic that is compliant with UL 94 V-0 and certified in accordance with IEC 60335-1, Clause 30 (glow-wire and ball pressure test). In addition, the winding is completely potted, which allows its use in highly polluted environments. Typical applications include frequency converters and power supplies.
