A Litz wire is an electrical conductor consisting of thin individual wires, which is used in electrical engineering for the transmission of high-frequency alternating current. The individual wires are often fine wires made of a copper alloy or electrolytic copper. In the manufacture of a Litz wire, the individual strands are first drawn and then insulated with a layer of lacquer. They are then bundled or stranded according to prescribed patterns so that, on average, each wire occupies as many places as possible in the total cross-section of the stranded wire. This process can also involve several levels so that a group of twisted wires is, in turn, twisted together. This action distributes the current evenly among the stranded wires, which reduces resistance.
In high-frequency technology, certain negative and limiting electrical influences can be observed. To be mentioned in this context are the:
Thus, to rectify these negative factors and reduce AC losses in high-frequency windings, which become noticeable above a frequency of 50kHz, the use of Litz wire is an obvious solution.
In cooperation with our partner New England Wire Technologies, we offer a diversified range of customized Litz wires in various forms. To be mentioned here are:
The problem of insulation loss can be avoided by using optional insulation of conductors with thin insulation layers made of various high-quality polymer materials extruded in two (supplementary) or three (reinforced) layers. This also ensures different temperature resistance and high mechanical strength.
Our UL/CSA-approved stranded wires also have high mechanical strength and excellent chemical resistance. Furthermore, the high energy density of Litz wire also ensures high efficiency.
Typical applications of this technology are:
