Gowanda Electronics Introduces Non Magnetic RF Inductor Series for Medical Imaging


Gowanda Electronics, a designer and manufacturer of inductors and magnetic components for RF and power applications, has announced the introduction of a new non-magnetic RF thru-hole (leaded) inductor series – 28MG. This series is ideal for use in medical imaging equipment and other applications where magnetic materials must be avoided.

Gowanda’s 28MG series was designed to address the market need for non-magnetic inductors that could achieve inductance values of up to 18 µH for use in Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) equipment, specific types of X-ray equipment and other applications where the presence of magnetic materials could compromise system performance. This includes applications in telecommunications, security systems, instrumentation, laboratory analysis equipment, aviation equipment, navigation equipment and electronic test equipment.

The performance range provided by the 60 discrete parts within the 28MG series includes Inductance from 1.2 to 18 µH, DCR from 0.079 to 4.15 Ohm and Current Rating (DC) from 315 to 2400 mA. All of Gowanda’s non-magnetic surface mount and thru-hole inductors, including this new 28MG series, provide relative permeability of ≤ 1.00003.

The operating temperature range for the 28MG series is -55 to 125°C. The 28MG inductors are epoxy encapsulated for environmental protection and superior strength to withstand all types of reflow soldering. Standard terminations are SnPb; RoHS-compliant terminations are provided when “LF” is specified.

The table below provides an overview of the company’s MG (thru-hole, leaded) and SMG (surface mount) series.
