More Information on Wirewound Inductors

Types of Wirewound Inductors

There are many different kinds of wirewound inductors. At Future Electronics we stock many of the most common types categorized by DC Resistance, Nominal Inductance, Tolerance, Maximum Rated Current, Packaging Type and Case Size/Dimension. The parametric filters on our website can help refine your search results depending on the required specifications.
The most common values for Nominal Inductance are 1 µH, 10 µH and 100 µH. We also carry wirewound inductors with Nominal Inductance up to 10000 H. DC Resistance can have a range between 0 Ω and 160 kΩ, with the most common wirewound inductors having a DC Resistance of 130 mΩ or 1.1 Ω.
