    Is the common mode choke too heavy for a pick and place machine?

    Would a surface mounting pick-n-place machine be able to pick and place this common mode choke? ,or is it too heavy for that?….and it would therefore need to be hand-soldered?

    Check with the pick-and-place specification but as a guess, it should be OK. The weight isn't specified but shouldn't be too much of a problem and it seems to have a flat top which makes vacuum lifting feasible.
