Can anyone help me make sense of a ferrite core datasheet? Answered

I need help understanding a datasheet for some ferrite cores I bought to wind transformers on.  This is the datasheet: http://www.ferroxcube.com/prod/assets/tx513219.pdf.  The main thing I need to know is the inductance per turn of wire on the core so I can design the transformers to minimize inductive reactance and such.


The forums are retiring in 2021 and are now closed for new topics and comments.

That's what  ALis for.

Inductance = AL x n2

You need to know cross sections etc for winding sizes and power ratings, but the fundamental thing is the AL

Inductance is in nH, n is the number of turns.
