The iron core inductor is a magnetic power supply that draws on the stored energy in ferrous metals and stores it for later use. Because the iron core inductor is such a simple device, it's the least expensive of all types of magnetic power supplies. They are also some of the easiest to use, although careful attention to detail is necessary to avoid damage to the iron core inductor itself.
When working with an iron core inductor, it's important to use common sense and to be extremely careful. The iron core inductor isn't made out of pure iron. It consists of copper wires strung together. A piece of thick double-ply copper foil is laid over this core, and then it's covered with solder. Then the copper foil is soldered to another piece of double-ply copper foil, which is still covered with solder.
By taking care not to touch the lead plates that contain the ferrous iron core inductor to the solder joints that they are connected to, you should be able to make sure that you don't cause any problems for yourself. Otherwise, if you don't pay attention, you can seriously damage your iron core inductor.
So, when you use the iron core inductor to power up your magnetic power supply, you will see a white smoke appear on the surface of the iron core inductor. This is the heat generated by the soldering iron, and it is drawn into the iron core inductor, and then produced as an electric current.
To draw this current into the iron core inductor, you simply need to attach a current limiting resistor. You will also need a DC power source, as well as a diode that will prevent any current from flowing into the iron core inductor. It's a good idea to start out with one diode and then increase the number of diodes you use as you gain experience.
If you do not have a DC power source, the other way to power up your iron core inductor is to connect an AC power source to the diode that prevents current from flowing into the iron core inductor. For this method, you will need two diodes, as well as a permanent magnet. It's much more difficult to build an iron core inductor and bridge rectifier in this manner, so it's not recommended for the first time.
As with any other device, you will need to be careful when working with the bridge rectifier as well. It's very easy to make a big mistake that can end up destroying the iron core inductor and damaging the device it powers up. If you're having trouble getting your iron core inductor to power up, you may need to step back and rethink your techniques.
That said, you should be able to power up your iron core inductor with an easy to build, perfect circuit. Then, once you know what you're doing, you'll be able to power up your iron core inductor easily and quickly and safely.
