Also known as a choke, a reactor, or a coil, an inductor is a passive two-terminal electrical energy storage device. When electric current flows through the inductor, energy is stored in its magnetic field. An inductor is made from a core surrounded by a coiled, insulated wire. Inductance is the amount of energy that an inductor can store. At Quest Components, we stock a wide range of inductors from top manufacturers, suitable for various applications.

Types of Inductors

Show All Product Types
  • Fixed Inductors 


    A fixed inductor will always have the same inductance. Types of fixed inductors include air-core, iron-core, and ferrite-core.

  • Variable Inductors 


    A variable inductor lets the user control the inductance by changing the position of its ferrite core.
