Wind Your Own Coils
A Guide To Making Inductors by Jeff Mucha
- This is a guide to winding inductors
for use in power supplies
- Wind Your Own Coils:
- It is possible to avoid having to buy the coils by instead
winding your own coils. You can very eaisly get inductances that
range from 1 uH to 50 uH with this very simple method and using
an air core. Below you see examples with 18 gauge wire and 20
gauge wire. The 75 turns of 18 gauge wire make a 16 uH inductor.
The 100 turns of 20 gauge wire makes a 35 uH inductor. The core
is air, but is filled with hot melt glue which is about the same
as air as far as the inductor is conserned.
- A picture is worth 1000 words..
