Benefits of Using Litz Wire

Litz wire consists of a number of individually insulated magnet wires twisted or braided into a uniform pattern with the primary benefit of reducing AC losses in high frequency windings.  NEWT offers unlimited Litz wire constructions with multiple types of insulation to meet agency and/or specific customer voltage withstand requirements.

Noted benefits of using Litz wire are:

  • Reduce AC losses in high frequency windings
  • Increased efficiency
  • Mitigation of Skin Effect
  • Mitigation of Proximity Effect
  • Minimum eddy current losses
  • Lower operating temperatures
  • Reduced footprint of final product
  • Substantial weight reduction
  • Avoidance of “hot spots”
