This specification deals with soft magnetic manganese zinc ferrite core materials for high frequency power transformer and filter inductor applications. Standard types of both power transformer and filter inductor material are defined. For power transformer use, there are five types defined by their maximum core loss density and minimum saturation flux density. For filter inductor materials, three types are defined based on their inductance permeability. Apart from magnetic property requirements, dimensional tolerances and workmanship requirements are defined in this specification.
This abstract is a brief summary of the referenced standard. It is informational only and not an official part of the standard; the full text of the standard itself must be referred to for its use and application. ASTM does not give any warranty express or implied or make any representation that the contents of this abstract are accurate, complete or up to date.
1.1 This specification covers the requirements to which the specified grades of soft magnetic manganese zinc (MnZn) ferrite materials shall conform. Cores made from these materials are used primarily in power transformers and filter inductors.
1.2 The values stated in customary (cgs-emu and inch-pounds) units are to be regarded as standard. The values given in parentheses are mathematical conversions to SI units, which are provided for information only and are not considered standard.
2. Referenced Documents (purchase separately) The documents listed below are referenced within the subject standard but are not provided as part of the standard.
