inductor coil orientation
« on: July 13, 2019, 02:28:19 PM »
Is there polarity involved, or is coil orientation a mechanical matter? I've encountered a couple with which I was hard put to tell which lead was the longer one.

There is one orientation where the leads reach the attaching rivets more easily. That's the only criteria.
