IEC 63182-1:202 (E) specifies the dimensions of magnetic powder cores. This document also gives guidelines on the allowable limits of surface irregularities of magnetic powder cores. It is considered as a general specification useful in the dialogue between magnetic powder core manufacturers and users about surface irregularities.
It is intended that this document will include magnetic powder cores which are widely used and referenced in industry, either because they are included in national standards, or because they are seen to have broad-based use in industry. Where applicable, it is intended that the existing industrial name for each powder core will appear with the part within the IEC 63182 series.
