Micrometals Introduces New Optilloy Alloy Powder Formulated to Optimize Inductor Performance ParametersMay 21, 2019 by Micrometals
Micrometals introduces its new offering of Optilloy Alloy Powder materials specifically formulated to deliver optimal core performance for demanding applications.
Micrometals, a leader in high-performance core solutions for power applications, is proud to introduce its new offering of Optilloy Alloy Powder materials. The offering includes three new formulations, OD, OC, and OE, which are specifically formulated to deliver optimal core performance for demanding applications. All Optilloy materials are unique formulations of iron, silicon, aluminum, and nickel and are available in toroid shapes with permeabilities from 14µ to 125µ.
The original Optilloy material, OP, was formulated to provide low core losses and high saturation.
The new OD material, Optimized DC Bias, is optimized to provide superior DC Bias while maintaining low losses and be very cost competitive. OD material is ideal for applications that require high saturation magnetization that may have traditionally used high flux materials like FluxSan or Hi-Flux. Optimized DC Bias cores are available in toroids from 3.5mm to 196mm with permeabilities from 14µ to 90µ.
The new OC material, Optimized Core Loss, is optimized to provide very low losses while maintaining good DC bias at an economical price. OC material is an economical alternative for applications that may have traditionally used Sendust or MPP type materials. Optimized Core Loss cores are available in toroids from 3.5mm to 196mm with permeabilities from 14µ to 125µ.
OE, Optimized Economy, has been specifically formulated to provide an economical alternative to applications that require moderate, but consistent magnetic performance. Optimized Economy cores are available in toroids from 3.5mm to 196mm with permeabilities from 14µ to 90µ.
Jim Cox, Micrometals President commented “For decades, our customers have trusted Micrometals cores to deliver exceptional reliability, consistency, and performance. With these new Optilloy materials we will continue to deliver that same reliability and consistency, but with performance targeted at one or more magnetic attributes that are the most important for their application, and a very competitive price.”
The Optilloy materials have been incorporated into the Micrometals Online Inductor Design Tool, for facilitating material selection and design optimization.
