Notice. New forum software under development. It's going to miss a few functions and look a bit ugly for a while, but I'm working on it full time now as the old forum was too unstable. Couple days, all good. If you notice any issues, please contact me.

This is not my ad

I bought some capacitors off this guy

now I'm buying a couple of these to make a bigger choke for my 10000 watt China board and the other one for the power Jack

This guy bought out a inverter company that went under so all these parts were originally bought for inverters

Oh yeah and since I bought two of them he sold them to me a little bit cheaper 41 bucks for two of them


I'm not sure if these are ferrite or not they're kind of heavy

Not laminated definitely ferrite








He has a lot of other miscellaneous inverter Parts also that he sells on eBayEdited by BenandAmber 2019-05-17

There is enough information there to reverse engineer that.

Green/yellow core looks like Micrometals powdered iron mix 40.

Part number T520-40D which is the largest size available. 5.2" OD, 3.08" ID, height 1.6"

Published Al value 240nH for one turn.  Fifty one turns 51 x 51 x .24uH = 624uH which is pretty close to what you measured.
It very likely has 50 turns.

Looking at the magnetization curve, it has a very soft saturation characteristic.
At 100 Orsteads about 40% of initial permeability.
That works out to 40% of 624uH = 250uH at 52 amps.

At 200 Orsteads about 22% of 624uH = 55uH at 104 amps.

All very nice, and pretty fair value for $31 US dollars.
That's about roughly $50 Aussie bux.

Nice find Ben.
Cheers, Tony.
