In our most recent blog, we introduced Litz wire and discussed its various uses and properties. Litz wire is a multi-strand wire used to conduct alternating current (AC) at radio frequencies. Individually insulated magnet wires are braided together in a pattern that helps reduce AC losses from skin effects and proximity effects found in high-frequency windings.
In this blog, we’ll compare Litz wire and copper foil—a thin metal sheet made from soft copper—and discuss their applications in transformer design.
Our engineering team frequently receives questions about whether we use Litz wire in our designs. We decided to focus this blog on educating our clients on this subject and explain why Litz wire is so ideal for certain applications and industries. Using Litz wire is associated with a number of benefits, including:
