More Information About Toroid Inductors

What is a Toroid Inductor?

A toroid inductor, used in electronic circuits, is an insulated coil that is wire wound on a ring-shaped form which is made of powdered iron, ferrite or another material. A toroid inductor is mostly used at low frequencies where large inductances are required. Toroid inductors have more inductance per turn, and can carry more current, than solenoids with a core of similar material and size. 

Types of Toroid Inductors

There are many different kinds of toroid inductors and at Future Electronics we stock many of the most common types categorized by Case Size/Dimension, Current Rating, Nominal Inductance, DC Resistance, Packaging type and Tolerance. The parametric filters on our website can help refine your search results depending on the required specifications.

The most common sizes for DC Resistance are 5 mΩ, 19 mΩ, 20 mΩ, 22 mΩ, 50 mΩ, 55 mΩ and 550 mΩ. Nominal Inductance can be between 10 µH and 920 µH, with the most common toroid inductors having a Nominal Inductance of 25 µH, 28 µH, 50 µH, 51 µH, 75 µH and 100 µH.
