Ferrite cores - Guidelines on dimensions and the limits of surface irregularities - Part 4: RM-cores (IEC 63093-4:2019)

This part of IEC 63093 specifies the dimensions that are of importance for mechanical
interchangeability for a preferred range of RM-cores and low-profile RM-cores made of ferrite,
and the locations of their terminal pins on a 2,54 mm printed wiring grid in relation to the base
outlines of the cores. It also gives guidance on allowable limits of surface irregularities
applicable to RM-cores in accordance with the relevant generic specification.
The selection of core sizes for this document is based on the philosophy of including those
sizes which are industrial standards, either by inclusion in a national standard, or by broadbased
use in industry.
This document is a specification useful in the negotiations between ferrite core manufacturers
and customers about surface irregularities.
The general considerations that the design of this range of cores is based upon are given in
Annex A.

Ferritkerne - Richtlinien zu Maßen und Grenzen von Oberflächenbeschädigungen - Teil 4: RM-Kerne

Ferrite cores - Guidelines on dimensions and the limits of surface irregularities - Part 4: RM-cores

L'IEC 63093-4:2019 spécifie les dimensions qui jouent un rôle majeur dans l'interchangeabilité mécanique d'une gamme préférentielle de noyaux RM et de noyaux RM extra plats constitués de ferrite, et les emplacements de leurs broches de sortie sur une grille au pas de 2,54 mm d'un circuit imprimé par rapport aux encombrements de base des noyaux. Elle fournit également des recommandations sur les limites d'irrégularités de surface admissibles des noyaux RM, conformément à la spécification générique applicable. Le choix de la taille des noyaux pour le présent document est fondé sur la philosophie consistant à introduire des tailles qui correspondent à des normes industrielles, soit par une prise en compte dans une norme nationale, soit par le biais d'une utilisation à grande échelle dans l'industrie. Le présent document est une spécification utile pour les négociations entre les fabricants de noyaux ferrites et les clients à propos des irrégularités de surface. Cette première édition annule et remplace la première édition de l'IEC 62317-4 parue en 2005 et la deuxième édition de l'IEC 60424-2 parue en 2015. Cette édition constitue une révision technique. La présente édition inclut les modifications techniques majeures suivantes par rapport à l'IEC 62317­4:2005 et à l'IEC 60424-2:2015: a) l'IEC 63093-4 intègre le contenu de l'IEC 62317-4:2005 et de l'IEC 60424-2:2015; b) le Tableau 2 de l'IEC 60424-2:2015 a été inclus dans l'Annexe C en tant que Tableau C.1.

Feritna jedra - Smernice o merah in mejnih vrednostih površinskih nepravilnosti - 4. del: RM-jedra (IEC 63093-4:2019)

Ta del standarda IEC 63093 določa mere, ki so pomembne za mehansko medsebojno zamenljivost prednostnega razpona RM-jeder in razpona nizko profilnih feritnih RM-jeder, ter položaje njihovih priključkov na 2,54-mm mreži tiskanega vezja glede na osnovno sestavo jeder. Podaja tudi navodila glede omejitev površinskih nepravilnosti, ki veljajo za RM-jedra v skladu z ustrezno splošno specifikacijo. Izbira velikosti jeder za ta dokument temelji na načelu vključevanja tistih velikosti, ki se na podlagi vključenosti v nacionalni standard ali vsesplošne uporabe v industriji smatrajo za industrijske velikosti.
Ta dokument je specifikacija, uporabna za sklepanje dogovorov o površinskih nepravilnostih med proizvajalci in uporabniki feritnih jeder.
Splošni premisleki, na podlagi katerih temelji zasnova tega razpona jeder, so podani v dodatku A.

FERRITE CORES –
GUIDELINES ON DIMENSIONS AND
THE LIMITS OF SURFACE IRREGULARITIES
Part 4: RM-cores
FOREWORD

1) The International Electrotechnical Commission (IEC) is a worldwide organization for standardization comprising

all national electrotechnical committees (IEC National Committees). The object of IEC is to promote

international co-operation on all questions concerning standardization in the electrical and electronic fields. To

this end and in addition to other activities, IEC publishes International Standards, Technical Specifications,

Technical Reports, Publicly Available Specifications (PAS) and Guides (hereafter referred to as “IEC

Publication(s)”). Their preparation is entrusted to technical committees; any IEC National Committee interested

in the subject dealt with may participate in this preparatory work. International, governmental and non-

governmental organizations liaising with the IEC also participate in this preparation. IEC collaborates closely

with the International Organization for Standardization (ISO) in accordance with conditions determined by

agreement between the two organizations.

2) The formal decisions or agreements of IEC on technical matters express, as nearly as possible, an international

consensus of opinion on the relevant subjects since each technical committee has representation from all

interested IEC National Committees.

3) IEC Publications have the form of recommendations for international use and are accepted by IEC National

Committees in that sense. While all reasonable efforts are made to ensure that the technical content of IEC

Publications is accurate, IEC cannot be held responsible for the way in which they are used or for any

misinterpretation by any end user.

4) In order to promote international uniformity, IEC National Committees undertake to apply IEC Publications

transparently to the maximum extent possible in their national and regional publications. Any divergence

between any IEC Publication and the corresponding national or regional publication shall be clearly indicated in

the latter.

5) IEC itself does not provide any attestation of conformity. Independent certification bodies provide conformity

assessment services and, in some areas, access to IEC marks of conformity. IEC is not responsible for any

services carried out by independent certification bodies.

6) All users should ensure that they have the latest edition of this publication.

7) No liability shall attach to IEC or its directors, employees, servants or agents including individual experts and

members of its technical committees and IEC National Committees for any personal injury, property damage or

other damage of any nature whatsoever, whether direct or indirect, or for costs (including legal fees) and

expenses arising out of the publication, use of, or reliance upon, this IEC Publication or any other IEC

Publications.

8) Attention is drawn to the Normative references cited in this publication. Use of the referenced publications is

indispensable for the correct application of this publication.

9) Attention is drawn to the possibility that some of the elements of this IEC Publication may be the subject of

patent rights. IEC shall not be held responsible for identifying any or all such patent rights.

International Standard IEC 63093-4 has been prepared by IEC technical committee 51:

Magnetic components, ferrite and magnetic powder materials.

This first edition cancels and replaces the first edition of IEC 62317-4 published in 2005 and

the second edition of IEC 60424-2 published in 2015. This edition constitutes a technical

revision.

This edition includes the following significant technical changes with respect to

IEC 62317-4:2005 and IEC 60424-2:2015:
a) IEC 63093-4 integrates the contents of IEC 62317-4:2005 and IEC 60424-2:2015;
b) IEC 60424-2:2015, Table 2, has been included in Annex C as Table C.1.

FERRITE CORES –
GUIDELINES ON DIMENSIONS AND
THE LIMITS OF SURFACE IRREGULARITIES
Part 4: RM-cores
1 Scope

This part of IEC 63093 specifies the dimensions that are of importance for mechanical

interchangeability for a preferred range of RM-cores and low-profile RM-cores made of ferrite,

and the locations of their terminal pins on a 2,54 mm printed wiring grid in relation to the base

outlines of the cores. It also gives guidance on allowable limits of surface irregularities

applicable to RM-cores in accordance with the relevant generic specification.

The selection of core sizes for this document is based on the philosophy of including those

sizes which are industrial standards, either by inclusion in a national standard, or by broad-

based use in industry.

This document is a specification useful in the negotiations between ferrite core manufacturers

and customers about surface irregularities.

The general considerations that the design of this range of cores is based upon are given in

Annex A.
2 Normative references

The following documents are referred to in the text in such a way that some or all of their

4 Primary dimensions
4.1 General

Compliance with the following requirements ensures mechanical interchangeability of

complete assemblies and wound coil formers.
4.2 Dimensions of RM-cores
4.2.1 Principal dimensions

The principal dimensions of RM-cores shall be as given in Table 1 and those of the low-profile

RM-cores shall be as given in Table 2. See also Figure 1 and Figure 2.
4.2.2 Effective parameter and A values
min

The effective parameter values for cores having the dimensions given in 4.2.1 are as shown in

Table 3 and Table 4. The definitions of effective parameters and their calculations shall be as

given in IEC 60205.
4.3 Main dimensions for coil formers
4.3.1 Shape of coil former and pin numbering

When the coil former is viewed from the pin side, the pins shall be numbered in a clockwise

direction. Pin 1 shall be a corner pin, or the pin immediately to the right of a corner, and

closest to the base outline.

For asymmetrical arrangements, pin 1 shall be at the side with the largest number of pins.

The coil former shall show an asymmetry, which shall preferably be visible (or detectable)

when the assembled inductor is held with the pins downwards. This asymmetry shall clearly

indicate pin 1. For pin numbering of recommended core patterns and for recommended

asymmetrical pin arrangements, see 4.4.
NOTE It is not required that the pin numbers be marked on the coil former.
4.3.2 Dimensions of coil formers for RM-cores for the primary standard
The dimensions specified in Table 7 and Table 8 are illustrated in Figure 5.
4.3.3 RM-cores intended particularly for power applications

These coil formers are intended for use with cores RM 6-S, RM 8, RM 10, RM 12 and RM 14A,

all without centre holes. Each is provided with twelve terminal pins except for the RM 6-S coil

former, which has only eight.

Figure 7 shows the features specific to this format and the corresponding dimensions are

given in Table 9.
4.4 Pin locations and base outlines

These shall be as shown in Figure 6 and Figure 8 (for power applications), in which the base

is viewed from the pin side, i.e. from the underside of the printed wiring boards.

The pins should fit into holes, the nominal hole diameter being:
• 1 mm when the shortest distance between pins is 2,54 mm;
• 1,3 mm when the shortest distance between pins is 2,54 mm or more.

4.5 Spring recess

RM-cores usually have recesses that allow the core halves to be held together by two spring

clamps snapping into these recesses. The recesses consist of a flat spring rest and a locking

ridge. The dimensions are given in Table 5 and Figure 3; the profile of this spring recess is

not defined but the limit dimensions shall be complied with.
4.6 Stud recess

Those RM-cores with centre-pole holes may have recesses for the fixed part of the adjusting

device with dimensions in accordance with Table 6 and Figure 4. These dimensions are not

mandatory for manufacturers who supply cores with the fixed part of the adjusting device

attached

FERRITE CORES –
GUIDELINES ON DIMENSIONS AND
THE LIMITS OF SURFACE IRREGULARITIES
Part 4: RM-cores
FOREWORD

1) The International Electrotechnical Commission (IEC) is a worldwide organization for standardization comprising

all national electrotechnical committees (IEC National Committees). The object of IEC is to promote

international co-operation on all questions concerning standardization in the electrical and electronic fields. To

this end and in addition to other activities, IEC publishes International Standards, Technical Specifications,

Technical Reports, Publicly Available Specifications (PAS) and Guides (hereafter referred to as “IEC

Publication(s)”). Their preparation is entrusted to technical committees; any IEC National Committee interested

in the subject dealt with may participate in this preparatory work. International, governmental and non-

governmental organizations liaising with the IEC also participate in this preparation. IEC collaborates closely

with the International Organization for Standardization (ISO) in accordance with conditions determined by

agreement between the two organizations.

2) The formal decisions or agreements of IEC on technical matters express, as nearly as possible, an international

consensus of opinion on the relevant subjects since each technical committee has representation from all

interested IEC National Committees.

3) IEC Publications have the form of recommendations for international use and are accepted by IEC National

Committees in that sense. While all reasonable efforts are made to ensure that the technical content of IEC

Publications is accurate, IEC cannot be held responsible for the way in which they are used or for any

misinterpretation by any end user.

4) In order to promote international uniformity, IEC National Committees undertake to apply IEC Publications

transparently to the maximum extent possible in their national and regional publications. Any divergence

between any IEC Publication and the corresponding national or regional publication shall be clearly indicated in

the latter.

5) IEC itself does not provide any attestation of conformity. Independent certification bodies provide conformity

assessment services and, in some areas, access to IEC marks of conformity. IEC is not responsible for any

services carried out by independent certification bodies.

6) All users should ensure that they have the latest edition of this publication.

7) No liability shall attach to IEC or its directors, employees, servants or agents including individual experts and

members of its technical committees and IEC National Committees for any personal injury, property damage or

other damage of any nature whatsoever, whether direct or indirect, or for costs (including legal fees) and

expenses arising out of the publication, use of, or reliance upon, this IEC Publication or any other IEC

Publications.

8) Attention is drawn to the Normative references cited in this publication. Use of the referenced publications is

indispensable for the correct application of this publication.

9) Attention is drawn to the possibility that some of the elements of this IEC Publication may be the subject of

patent rights. IEC shall not be held responsible for identifying any or all such patent rights.

International Standard IEC 63093-4 has been prepared by IEC technical committee 51:

Magnetic components, ferrite and magnetic powder materials.

This first edition cancels and replaces the first edition of IEC 62317-4 published in 2005 and

the second edition of IEC 60424-2 published in 2015. This edition constitutes a technical

revision.

This edition includes the following significant technical changes with respect to

IEC 62317-4:2005 and IEC 60424-2:2015:
a) IEC 63093-4 integrates the contents of IEC 62317-4:2005 and IEC 60424-2:2015;
b) IEC 60424-2:2015, Table 2, has been included in Annex C as Table C.1.

FERRITE CORES –
GUIDELINES ON DIMENSIONS AND
THE LIMITS OF SURFACE IRREGULARITIES
Part 4: RM-cores
1 Scope

This part of IEC 63093 specifies the dimensions that are of importance for mechanical

interchangeability for a preferred range of RM-cores and low-profile RM-cores made of ferrite,

and the locations of their terminal pins on a 2,54 mm printed wiring grid in relation to the base

outlines of the cores. It also gives guidance on allowable limits of surface irregularities

applicable to RM-cores in accordance with the relevant generic specification.

The selection of core sizes for this document is based on the philosophy of including those

sizes which are industrial standards, either by inclusion in a national standard, or by broad-

based use in industry.

This document is a specification useful in the negotiations between ferrite core manufacturers

and customers about surface irregularities.

The general considerations that the design of this range of cores is based upon are given in

Annex A.
2 Normative references

The following documents are referred to in the text in such a way that some or all of their

content constitutes requirements of this document. For dated references, only the edition

4.3.1 Shape of coil former and pin numbering

When the coil former is viewed from the pin side, the pins shall be numbered in a clockwise

direction. Pin 1 shall be a corner pin, or the pin immediately to the right of a corner, and

closest to the base outline.

For asymmetrical arrangements, pin 1 shall be at the side with the largest number of pins.

The coil former shall show an asymmetry, which shall preferably be visible (or detectable)

when the assembled inductor is held with the pins downwards. This asymmetry shall clearly

indicate pin 1. For pin numbering of recommended core patterns and for recommended

asymmetrical pin arrangements, see 4.4.
NOTE It is not required that the pin numbers be marked on the coil former.
4.3.2 Dimensions of coil formers for RM-cores for the primary standard
The dimensions specified in Table 7 and Table 8 are illustrated in Figure 5.
4.3.3 RM-cores intended particularly for power applications

These coil formers are intended for use with cores RM 6-S, RM 8, RM 10, RM 12 and RM 14A,

all without centre holes. Each is provided with twelve terminal pins except for the RM 6-S coil

former, which has only eight.

Figure 7 shows the features specific to this format and the corresponding dimensions are

given in Table 9.
4.4 Pin locations and base outlines

These shall be as shown in Figure 6 and Figure 8 (for power applications), in which the base

is viewed from the pin side, i.e. from the underside of the printed wiring boards.

The pins should fit into holes, the nominal hole diameter being:
• 1 mm when the shortest distance between pins is 2,54 mm;
• 1,3 mm when the shortest distance between pins is 2,54 mm or more.

4.5 Spring recess

RM-cores usually have recesses that allow the core halves to be held together by two spring

clamps snapping into these recesses. The recesses consist of a flat spring rest and a locking

ridge. The dimensions are given in Table 5 and Figure 3; the profile of this spring recess is

not defined but the limit dimensions shall be complied with.
4.6 Stud recess

Those RM-cores with centre-pole holes may have recesses for the fixed part of the adjusting

device with dimensions in accordance with Table 6 and Figure 4. These dimensions are not

mandatory for manufacturers who supply cores with the fixed part of the adjusting device

attached
