Gowanda-ERInductorsGowanda Electronics recently introduced two inductor series meeting the military’s Qualified Products List requirements for “Established Reliability”. Gowanda’s ER10M and ER17S thru-hole RF inductor series are approved to MIL-PRF-39010, Level M. Such ER approval requires extensive life testing across thermal, electrical, mechanical and environmental test spectrums. The ER10M and ER17S series represent Gowanda’s first ER products for the military market.

ER10M is a wirewound, molded design approved for MIL-PRF-39010 slash 08, 09 and 10. Performance includes: Inductance from 0.10 uH to 1000 uH; Q Min from 25 to 55; SRF MHz Min from 3.4 to 680; DCR Ohms Max from 0.08 to 72 and Current Rating DC mA from 28 to 1350. Operating Temperature is -55°C to 125°C for /08 and -55°C to 105°C for /09 and /10.

ER17S is a wirewound, molded, shielded design approved for MIL-PRF-39010 slash 01, 02 and 03. Performance includes: Inductance from 0.10 uH to 1000 uH; Q Min from 40 to 60; SRF MHz Min from 3.8 to 250; DCR Ohms Max from 0.025 to 17.5 and Current Rating DC mA from 70 to 1790. Operating Temperature is -55°C to 105°C.

Gowanda’s ER10M and ER17S inductors meet the relevant MIL-PRF-39010 specifications to failure rate Level M. Life testing is ongoing at Gowanda’s in-house environmental testing lab and will continue until the more demanding failure rate level – Level R – is attained.

These new series represent the most reliable off-the-shelf inductors offered in the industry for high-reliability applications. They also demonstrate Gowanda’s ongoing commitment to the development and introduction of QPL products which address the needs of the military and aerospace markets.

Gowanda’s ER10M and ER17S series were designed for RF applications in military, aerospace and defense communities. This includes use in communication, guidance and security applications, as well as in radar, test & evaluation, and special mission applications.
