Renco Power inductor (RL-1608-S-330) - common failures??

Electronics Forum | Wed Jun 09 14:41:12 EDT 2010 | ronchap200027

Has anyone had issues with Renco inductors failing. The component I'm having problems with is a 330uH shielded power inductor. Out of 36 board failures, I have 17 that failed because this inductor failed. Most often they end up reading -1.34 uH.

Improve quality with stencil design for inductor

I don't think it's a stencil issue. You have an identical inductor next to t=it, that's perfectly straight. You have a problem in that location. I've seen some inductors be affected by slight magnetic forces in the reflow oven. Try to rotate the boar

Thanks for the opinions! You're right, it can't be solved with a stencil. I have made investigation, the problems are related to the quality of the component land surface, one of the terminal is oxidized.

We've seen the exact same problem. The solder joints had negative wetting angles and x-sections show that the PdAg termination dissolved into the solder. We no longer allow PdAg terminations.

Thanks Pete yes we usu ROHS solder paste in our process. I agree that this termination is more suitable for adhsive bonding rather than soldering. We'll try changing the termination type as you recommended. Eyal G

We are facing low quality due to soldering opens with coilcraft inductors 0402CS-2N7XGLW. The termination used is(suffix L =RoHS compliant silver-palladium-platinum-glass frit. Did anyone had this problem in the past? Can we do better using T = RoH

We have experienced the same problem with Pd/AG and P/Ag terminations on precision resistive parts. The problem is dissolution of the termination metallisation into the bulk solder. This is exacerbated by the higher thermal profiles required for RoHS

waterwash of inductors

Hi, We used to clean 20 pieces SMT inductors before but no problem with this process. Please confirm what type of inductors is it SMT or hole type. What type of chemical and machine you are currently using? Maybe I can help you out.

We have been using Coilcraft 1008CS inductors for several years. We have had problems with them turning green when we use lead-free solder paste. We have tried several solder pastes (water soluble and no-clean)from different manufacturers, but the
