variable inductor

Definitions

Electronics

  • An inductor whose inductance can be adjusted. It may consist, for instance, of a coil whose inductance can be varied by using one or more moving elements such as taps or sliding contacts. This contrasts with a fixed inductor, which has a single inductance which cannot be varied. Also called variable inductance.
