Industrial ratings present a challenge for inductors. This is because industrial-rated components need to have a wider operating temperature range, and they are expected to operate with a high level of reliability without incurring substantial additional costs. Due to the stringent requirements of industrial ratings, these inductors must be high quality and low cost.
