Coil on a ferrite rod.

Calculating limitations:

  • The winding pitch cannot exceed the doubled wire diameter;
  • Coil diameter cannot be greater than the doubled diameter of the rod ;
  • Winding length should be less than 3/4 length of the rod;
  • When the coil is shifting it should not reach the edge of the core 1/8 of its length;
  • The initial magnetic permeability of the ferrite should be greater than 100;
